|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
ACTION COMICS #851 by Geoff Johns, Richard Donner, and Adam Kubert. The Superman Revenge Squad in 3-D. 4-Realz.
ALL-STAR SUPERMAN #8 by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. Bizarros!!!!
AMAZING TRANSFORMATIONS OF JIMMY OLSEN SC by Various Creators. Giant Turtle-Man, anyone? Elastic Lad? Human Porcupine? It all really happened, kids. Bolland cover. Gotta look.
ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN #2 by Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard. He’s a hero-werewolf. Don’t give me that look. From the author of WALKING DEAD and MARVEL ZOMBIES.
DARK TOWER GUNSLINGER BORN #6 of 7 by Peter David and Jae Lee. Roland’s dad is gonna get whacked unless the young gunslinger can figure stuff out fast. I’m sensing and “Uncle Ben moment” coming….
DETECTIVE COMICS #834 by Paul Dini and Don Kramer. The Joker’s working bad mojo on The Bat. Guest-starring Zatanna.
ESSENTIAL DEFENDERS VOL.3 SC by Lotsa People. Collecting issues #31-60 and Annual #1, featuring the first appearances of the Wrecking Crew and an Elf… An elf with a gun!!!
FAKER #1 of 6 by Mike Carey and Jock. A tale of college freshman year from the author of LUCIFER. How can this not be awesome?
FALLEN SON DEATH OF CAPTAIN AMERICA: IRON MAN by Jeph Loeb and John Cassaday. A funeral for a friend which is going to seem awfully silly when he comes back just in time to devalue a lot of “highly collectable variants.” Sure is purty though….
GARTH ENNIS CHRONICLES OF WORMWOOD #5 of 6 by Garth and Jacen Burrows. Judas Iscariot’s back from the hot place and Danny’s pal Jay could be in trouble. Kinky. NOT for kids.
GOLDEN-AGE DOCTOR FATE ARCHIVES VOL.1 HC by Gardner Fox, Howard Sherman, and Others. Collecting MORE FUN COMICS #55-98. Gotta have it. Where else will you find these stories without selling your house?
MARVEL ZOMBIES/ARMY OF DARKNESS #5 of 5 by John Layman and Fabiano Neves. The fearsome fate of the Darkhold. No kidding. Plus, lots of bitey action. Not for kids.
MS. MARVEL #17 by Brian Reed and Aaron Lopresti. An “Initiative” cross-over in which our heroine learns something about herself and fights a guy with a big, enormous head. MODOK, not Shatner.
NEIL GAIMAN INTERWORLD and M IS FOR MAGIC HCs by Himself. The first is written with Michael Reaves about a guy who teams up with alternate universe versions of himself. The second is a collection of short stories with illustrations by Teddy Kristiansen. Bye-bye paycheck…
NEW AVENGERS/TRANSFORMERS #1 of 4 by Stuart Moore and Tyler Kirkham. Earth’s mightiest heroes meet Earth’s mightiest robots that turn into stuff! Doc Doom teams up with the Decepticons! Hey, soulless Hollywood marketing guys have to eat too, y’know! Excelsior!
PUNISHER #49 by Garth Ennis and Lan Medina. You know the Punisher really likes you if he lends you his blood-soaked shirt. And all his guns…. Meet “She-Punisher!”
PUNISHER PRESENTS BARRACUDA MAX #5 of 5 by Garth Ennis and Goran Parlov. Fifty passes Barracuda the pig. Hijinks ensue. Recommended. NOT for kids.
RUNAWAYS #27 by Joss Whedon and Michael Ryan. Time travel, magic, and early twentieth century slang, very possibly authentic! Whedon: Always a must-read.
SILVERFISH HC written and drawn by David Lapham. An original graphic novel from the creator of STRAY BULLETS. Okay, you kind of need to have this. Pretend he never wrote that Batman/Spectre stuff. Recommended.
SIMPSONS SUPER-SPECTACULAR #5 by Various Creators. This one is special because it features artwork by Ramona Fradon. She created Metamorpho the Element man for DC. She riffs on the character here. It’s great. Recommended.
THOR #1 by J. Michael Straczynski and Olivier Coipel. The God of Thunder is tired of being dead and wants to live again. He starts in Oklahoma, sort of easing back into the being alive thing. Hijinks ensue.
ULTIMATE POWER #6 of 9 by J. Michael Straczynski and Greg Land. This title is still coming out.
UNCANNY X-MEN #448 by Ed Brubaker and Salvador Larroca. “Endangered Species, Part 2” with back-up story by Mike Carey and Mark Bagley.
UNION JACK LONDON FALLING SC by Christos Gage and Mike Perkins. The collected mini-series that turned out to be way better than anyone would have thought. Recommended. Seriously.
USAGI YOJIMBO VOL.21: THE TRESURE OF THE MOTHER OF MOUNTAINS SC written and drawn by Stan Sakai. Collecting issues #83-89. Another Samurai rabbit epic from a guy who’s really good at them.
Y THE LAST MAN #57 by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. Holy cow, Beth and Yorick finally meet. This week’s “Must-Have!” Highly, highly recommended!
