|Hot Picks for the Week!|
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #624 by Mark Waid and Paul Azaceta. Holy moley, did the new Vulture really barf acid all over J. Jonah’s face?! And will it be an improvement? Thrilling suspense from the mind of Mark Waid!
BATMAN AND ROBIN #10 by Grant Morrison and Andy Clarke. Will Robin chop Batman’s head off with a sword or won’t he? Decisions, decisions…
BATMAN: WIDENING GYRE #5 of 6 by Kevin Smith and Walter Flanagan. “The women in (Batman’s) life force him into an awkward position.” Kevin, Kevin, Kevin…
THE BOYS, VOL. 6: SELF-PRESERVATION SOCIETY SC by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The supes go after the Boys. Not smart, supes. Not smart at all. Massive violence and perversion ensue. Recommended. Not for kids.
BPRD: KING OF FEAR #3 of 5 by Mike Mignola, John Arcudi and Guy Davis. Abe Sapien and Liz versus Tibetan frog monsters and the big, bad King of Fear! Pulpy!
BREAKING INTO COMICS THE MARVEL WAY #1 of 2 by C.B. Cebulski and Others Who Have Done It. No, this isn’t about how Jack Kirby got his original art back, nor is it about being Kevin Smith. It’s a guide for the aspiring dweller in the House of Ideas and you could certainly do worse than to give it a read. After all, if Rob Liefeld did it, why can’t you?
CRIMINAL: SINNERS #5 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Caught between the gangsters he works for and the military that wants him back Tracy Lawless is all out of options. The big finish of this mini-series and possibly of its hard-luck star. Highly recommended. Not for kids.
DARK X-MEN #5 of 5 by Paul Cornell and Leonard Kirk. A battle for control inside Norman Osborn’s mind could best be described as taking place on treacherous ground. And isn’t that always fun to watch?
DAYTRIPPER #4 of 10 by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba. Bras has a son and then no doubt dies again. Still a really good, beautiful read. Highly recommended.
DOOM PATROL #8 by Keith Giffen and Matthew Clark. More trouble comes to Oolong Island. Why the gang doesn’t pick up sticks and move is beyond me. I mean, how good can an island be?
EX MACHINA #48 by Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris. Long-ago prophecies come true as Mitchell Hundred comes one step closer to the end of his term. Only two issues remain til the conclusion of this series which remains highly recommended.
GHOST PROJEKT #1 of 5 by Joe Harris and Steve Rolston. A little something from Oni Press about a US weapons inspector and his Russian counterpart who have to track down a missing weapon that really shouldn’t be.
GHOST RIDERS: HEAVEN’S ON FIRE SC by Jason Aaron and Roland Boschi. Big, crazy, grindhouse biker brawl between heaven and hell with a bunch of Ghost Riders and the Son of Satan in the middle! Great with Everclear and nachos!
GHOUL #3 Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson. A gorgeously illustrated monster noir mystery set in Hollywood. This one really needs to be a movie. From IDW. Recommended.,br>
HELLBOY, VOL. 9: THE WILD HUNT SC by Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo. HB dukes it out with the Queen of Blood! Because how can he not?
JUSTICE LEAGUE: RISE AND FALL SPECIAL #1 by James Robinson, J.T. Krul and Mike Mayhew. Now that Green Arrow’s back to greasing bad guys the JLA may need to re-examine their mission statement.
LOCKJAW AND THE PET AVENGERS UNLEASHED #1 of 4 by People Who Gotta Make Rent. Six thousand years ago a naked lady ate an apple she wasn’t supposed to and that’s why this comic exists.
POWERS #3 Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming. Walker’s in trouble. Lotsa swears.
PUNISHERMAX #5 by Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon. After getting sledge-hammered and trampled by horses last issue Frank’s gotta figure out how to take out the Mennonite, the Kingpin and everyone else who’s looking to finish the job. Highly recommended. Not for kids.,br>
SECRET SIX #19 by Gail Simone and Jim Califiore. Chesire the lady assassin/psycho-tramp has some news she wants to share with Catman. Things kinda go south from there.
SOLOMON KANE: DEATH’S BLACK RIDERS #3 of 4 by Scott Allie and Mario Guevara. Deep in the Black Forest things are smokin’ at the Cleft Skull Tavern! Indeed they are demon-slicing hot! If you’re a fan of the great Charles Vess you want to check out the art Mario Guevara’s doing on this book. Recommended.
SUPERMAN: LAST STAND ON NEW KRYPTON #1 of 3 by James Robinson, Sterling Gates and Pete Woods. Rumble with Brainiac starts now!
THE MYSTIC HANDS OF DOCTOR STRANGE #1 by Lotsa People. In the spirit of DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG-FU and BIG GREEN HANDS OF THE HULK and all those other black and white Marvel mags of the seventies that did so well, it’s Doctor Strange’s turn. And are mystic hands anything like magic fingers?
THE TWELVE: SPEARHEAD #1 written and drawn by Chris Weston. Captain America leads the heroes of The Twelve on a Nazi-fighting mission in 1945, which oddly enough was the last time we saw an issue of THE TWELVE. Kidding! It was November of 2008 which is much better. Straczynski says issue #9 will come out “later this year.” Honest. Anyway, Chris Weston is always amazing so this is Highly Recommended.
UNWRITTEN #11 by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. In a city full of ghost Nazis Tommy Taylor tries to help. But who can help him? Recommended.
WOLVERINE: MR. X ONE-SHOT by Frank Tieri and Francesco Mattina. Big fight!
