|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
ALIENS VS. PREDATOR OMNIBUS VOL.1 SC by Various Creators. Over 400 pages of extra-terrestrial, extra-terrifying action featuring filmdom’s toughest critters!
ALL-NEW ATOM #12 by Gail Simone and Mike Norton. The hunt for Ray Palmer begins here!
AVENGERS INITIATIVE #3 by Dan Slott and Stefano Caselli. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over if you can believe it. Lots of new faces and new takes on old faces. Dan Slott has become the latest Writer One Always Has to Check Out. Guest-starring Spider-Man. Recommended.
BIRDS OF PREY #107 by Gail Simone and Nicola Scott. Birds vs. Secret Six, final round and it looks like somebody buys it. (Will it be you?) Nice JLA tribute cover.
BLACK SUMMER #0 of 7 by Warren Ellis and Juan Jose Ryp. A 99-cent starter issue of the latest super-hero series from “Internet Jesus” Warren Ellis. Not for kids. All others are encouraged to have a look. Highly recommended.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER SEASON EIGHT #4 by Joss Whedon and Georges Jeanty. To say the Scoobies’ newest foe is “thin-skinned” might be a little too generous… Highly recommended.
CIVIL WAR SCs including IRON MAN and MARVEL UNIVERSE. Over here, you completists!
COUNTDOWN #47 by Sean McKeever ad Al Barrionuevo. It’s the Mary Marvel cover fans have been talking about! Oh, and there’s a comic book that attached to it.
DAREDEVIL: BATTLING JACK MURDOCK #1 of 4 by Zeb Wells and Carmine Di Giandomenico. A mini in which we learn what made Daredevil’s dad take a licking and keep on ticking, right up to the moment he stopped.
DARK TOWER GUNSLINGER BORN #5 of 7 by Peter David and Jae Lee. Farson and the Coffin Riders have weapons and the juice to use them while Roland’s boys are fighting amongst themselves. Bad ka, kids.
DETECTIVE COMICS #837 by Paul Dini and Don Kramer. The first of a two-part mystery guest-starring Zatanna. With fish-nets. :)
GHOST RIDER TRAIL OF TEARS #5 of 6 by Garth Ennis and Clayton Crain. Not only does most of this issue’s action take place during daylight so you can make out what’s happening, BUT a major character gets their right arm ripped off! Classic Garth Ennis dismemberment action, True Believer! NOT a “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over and NOT for kids.
IRON MAN #18 by Daniel & Charles Knauf and Roberto De La Torre. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over in which red mutant octopus tentacles penetrate all sorts of things they shouldn’t and Our Hero has to deal. Gory!
LITTLE NEMO COMPLETE WORKS HC (New Printing) by Winsor McKay. What it says. Recommended.
A MAN CALLED KEV SC by Garth Ennis and Carlos Ezquerra. Collecting the five-issue mini about a man on the run from… well, everyone really. Recommended.
MARVEL ZOMBIES/ARMY OF DARKNESS #4 of 5 by John Layman and Fabiano Silva Neves. Ash, Dazzler, and Scarlet Witch are begging for help at Castle Doom while hungry-hungry heroes try to get in. Plus we learn how the zombie plague spread so quickly across the world. Big Fun, NOT FOR KIDS!
MS. MARVEL #16 by Brian Reed and Aaron Lopresti. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over in which Carol ends her fight with Wonder Man as only she can. And what’s up with MODOK?
NEW WARRIORS #1 by Kevin Gredioux and Paco Medina. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over in which a new team of youngsters is gathered under a group name only slightly less popular than Al Qaeda.
OMEGA FLIGHT #3 of 5 by Michael Oeming and Scot Kolins. A “Civil War/Initiative” cross-over in which it is revealed that “you don’t have to be from Canada in order to fight for Canada!” This is why most of the new team is from Idaho or space.
PUNISHER #48 by Garth Ennis and Lan Medina. Frank gets schooled in How-to-Dish-It-Out! By a girl! Recommended!
SUPERMAN #663 by Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco. Between the creative team and the “Power Girl on the Examining Table” cover this one’s gonna be in demand. And there’s some stuff with Arion and the New Gods too.
UNCANNY X-MEN #487 by Ed Brubaker and Salvador Larroca. The gang is back from outer space and now they’re gearing up to fight Morlocks. (Sarcasm Alert!) Finally someone’s telling all those 1990s stories the way they should have been told! “In your face, Claremont!” (End Sarcasm.)
WELCOME TO TRANQUILITY #7 by Gail Simone and Neil Googe. “Mayberry for Superheroes” is starting to look more like “Twin Peaks” as the town recovers from last issue’s battle royale.
Plus, from Dark Horse Comics no less: CLASSIC DC CHARACTERS #1: SUPERMAN. This five-inch tall figure looks like it fell through a wormhole straight from the 1940s. A must-have for all fans of Supes co-creator Joe Shuster and Fleischer Studios animation. Highly recommended.
