|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
AMAZONS ATTACK #3 of 6 by Will Pfeifer and Pete Woods. Hot chicks in armor fighting, guest-starring Supergirl and Wonder Girl.
ART OF BONE HC by Jeff Smith. A peek behind the curtain and then some from the creator of one of the greatest indy titles ever. Highly recommended.
BLACK PANTHER #28 by Reginald Hudlin and Francis Portela. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over that… Oh who cares?! The Marvel Zombie Galactii attack!!! They eat Skrulls! It’s awesome! Not for kids.
THE BOYS #8 by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. A murder is investigated and the Tek Knight’s “compulsion” keeps getting stronger. So recommended! So NOT for kids!
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER OMNIBUS VOL.1 by Lotsa People including Joss. Tons of Buffy books including “Origin”, “Viva Las Buffy”, “Slayer Interrupted”, and more. Gotta have it, kids.
CLASSIC DC CHARACTER #2: BATMAN from Dark Horse Comics. A sweet golden-age Batman figure that looks like it was sculpted and painted by Bob Kane himself. Or at least by someone who worked for Kane and allowed him sign his name to it. Recommended!
CRIMINAL #7 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Iraq veteran Tracy Lawless has infiltrated the gang his late brother used to run with. But how deep does he have to dig to find the rat that wasted him? You must read this comic. Unless you’re a young Kid and then you should wait until you get your first zit at least. Highly recommended.
DAREDEVIL #98 by Ed Brubaker and Michel Lark. The mystery of the Gladiator’s psychosis deepens. Great issue. Highly recommended.
FANTASTIC FOUR #547 by Dwayne McDuffie and Paul Pelletier. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over that is so much better than that stupid movie! Written by a guy who understands Reed’s power is his brain and drawn by a guy who digs the Alan Davis thing. Recommended.
GARTH ENNIS STREETS OF GLORY PREVIEW by G.E. and Mike Wolfer. Okay, it’s a western done by Garth Ennis and the artist from “Plague of the Living Dead” so you know it’s not for kids. And you know it’s gonna be great!
GREEN LANTERN SINESTRO CORPS SPECIAL #1 by Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, and Dave Gibbons. The origin of Sinestro and why his Corps is the biggest bad to hit the GLs since Krona. Extra geek points if you don’t need to look that up.
HELLBOY DARKNESS CALLS #3 of 6 by Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo. Baba Yaga gets Hellboy right where she wants him. HB gets witch-slapped!
IMMORTAL IRON FIST #6 by Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction, David Aja, and RUSS HEATH, people! Concluding the first chapter of this story with a big old-fashioned Hydra/ninja fight. And someone dies. Recommended.
SHE-HULK #19 by Dan Slott and Rick Burchett. The Leader needs a lawyer. Guess who he wants to hire…
SHOWCASE PRESENTS BATMAN VOL.2 SC by Lotsa People. Stories from the 1960s featuring the first appearances of Blockbuster, Poison Ivy, the Outsider, and more. Fun stuff, great for all ages.
SILVER SURFER REQUIEM #2 of 4 by J. Michael Straczynski and Esad Ribic. The Surfer has the worst zit ever. Better than the movie, but what isn’t? Guest-starring Spider-Man.
THUNDERBOLTS #115 by Warren Ellis and Mike Deodato. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over in which Venom does something bad. So does Bullseye. As does American Eagle. Violence a’la Ellis. Recommended.
ULTIMATES 2 VOL.2 GRAND THEFT AMERICA SC by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch. Apocalyptic summer fun in the mighty Marvel manner. So many people die including comicdom’s best loved butler. No, the other one. And Ultimate Hulk smashes!
WALKING DEAD #38 by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard. In a world of flesh-eating zombies the worst monsters are still human. It’s on. NOT for kids. Highly recommended.
WOLVERINE ORIGINS #15 by Daniel Way and Steve Dillon. An issue that leaves you wondering who edits the Daily Bugle’s classified ads and this title.
WONDER WOMAN #10 by Jodi Picoult and Paco Diaz. It’s up to Wonder Woman to stop the Amazon War once and for all. But can she do it three months before AMAZONS ATTACK is scheduled to wrap? The editorial chaos begins here!
WORLD WAR HULK FRONT LINE #1 of 6 by Paul Jenkins and Ramon Bachs. “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Meet the Hulk.” Something like that.
WORLD WAR HULK X-MEN #1 of 3 by Chris Gage and Andrea Divito. The Hulk goes back to school and takes a few mutants with him.
X-FACTOR #20 by Peter David and Khoi Pham. Quicksilver’s secret gets out and somebody appears to die. Tough gig.
And don’t forget PREVIEWS from Marvel and Diamond, for all your window-shopping needs!
