|Hot Picks for the Week!|
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #630 by Zeb Wells and Chris Bachalo. Spidey must fight a cold-blooded reptile and it ain’t Dick Cheney! The Lizard is back! Yowza!
ASTONISHING SPIDER-MAN/WOLVERINE #1 by Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert. The best Wolverine writer ever gets his hands on the web-slinger too! Brace yourself for the MARVEL TEAM-UP from hell! Recommended!
ASTRO CITY: THE DARK AGE BOOK FOUR #4 of 4 by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson. This is it! The final chapter of THE DARK AGE! Years in the making, two covers and eight extra pages of Astro City WOW! Recommended!
BATMAN AND ROBIN #12 by Grant Morrison and Andy Clarke. Wrapping up the big Batman-Robin fight and revealing a lot of stuff you’d never guess about characters you’d never heard of until Morrison made them up. It’s bat-stuff crazy!
THE BEATS: A GRAPHIC HISTORY SC by Harvey Pekar and Various Collaborators. This is a softcover edition of Pekar’s graphic exploration of a literary movement that shaped his generation. A mixed bag well worth digging into.
BRIGHTEST DAY #1 by Geoff Johns and a Lot of People. You’d think after coming back from the dead everything else would be a cake-walk. And you’d be wrong, as a whole bunch of DC heroes are about to learn.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #35 by Brad Meltzer and Georges Jeanty. Somehow they’re really going to wrap this all up in this issue. With an X-Men tribute cover no less! Must read!
CAPTAIN AMERICA/BLACK PANTHER: FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS #2 by Reginald Hudlin and Denys Cowan. A World War Two adventure starring a rookie Cap versus a seasoned Panther. Oh, and the Nazis are in there too. Recommended.
DONG XOAI VIETNAM 1965 written and illustrated by Joe Kubert. A devastating true story from the days of the Vietnam War, told as only the great Joe Kubert can. Highly recommended.
ELECTRIC ANT #2 of 5 by David Mack and Pascal Alixe. Based on an original story by the legendary Philip K. Dick, this is already one of the most promising sci-fi comics in a long time. Great art and a familiar Dick theme of figuring out how much we really know about ourselves and what it means to be human. Highly recommended.
INCORRUPTIBLE, VOL. 1 SC by Mark Waid and Jean Diaz. In which we meet Max Damage, the bad guy who gets more powerful the longer he’s awake. Except Max isn’t bad anymore since the Plutonian went nuts. Now he’s “Incorruptible.” Highly recommended.
IRREDEEMABLE #13 by Mark Waid and Peter Krause. The Paradigm are locked up, leaving the mad Plutonian completely in the hands of the one guy crazier than he is. Recommended.
IZOMBIE #1 by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred. The adventures of a grave-robbing, brain-eating girl detective. Yes, you do have to look! Not for kids.
PILOT SEASON: STEALTH #1 by Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri. In the midst of a number of other difficulties a man takes in his aging father who’s suffering from dementia. Unfortunately dad was also the superhero Stealth. Will Obamacare be able to handle this? From the creator of WALKING DEAD and INVINCIBLE.
PRIDE, PREJUDICE & ZOMBIES GN by Jane Austen, Seth Grahame-Smith, Tony Lee and Cliff Richards. The only thing that could make me read Jane Austen: Flesh-eating fiends from the depths of hell!!! Recommended.
SECRET SIX #21 by Gail Simone and Jim Calafiore. Catman’s got his claws out like never before. Definitely not for younger kids. Recommended.
SPIDER-MAN: FEVER #2 of 3 written and drawn by Brendan McCarthy. Doctor Strange must rescue Spidey’s soul from demons in a book that looks like it was painted with melted Good-n-Fruitys! Gotta look!
STEPHEN KING’S N #3 of 4 by Marc Guggenheim and Alex Maleev. Adapting a Stephen King horror story about a shrink who catches his patient’s demon-induced OCD. You must read this comic ten times before you can put it down safely, in mylar, in a comic box facing north-south. Seriously.
SUPERMAN: WAR OF THE SUPERMEN #1 of 4 by James Robinson, Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle. Brainiac is now an afterthought as Supes and Zod tear into each other while 100,000 Kryptonians wait in the wings.
ULTIMATE COMICS: NEW ULTIMATES #2 by Jeph Loeb and Frank Cho. This comic was drawn by Frank Cho.
UNCANNY X-MEN #524 by Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson. Last issue “a beloved X-Man died defending Hope.” Okay, I’m not gonna give it away, but come on. “Beloved?” Really? Some of these X-threads are better than others.
VERONICA #200 written and drawn by Dan Parent. A milestone issue starring Riverdale’s poor little rich girl, Veronica Lodge! This issue, Veronica gets a time machine!
And this week don’t forget to ask for your WHITE LANTERN PROMO RINGS for enhancing your enjoyment of comics and bringing back the dead!
