|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #530 by J. Michael Straczynski and Ron Garney. Leading into the “Civil War” story-line, Tony Stark’s new side-kick “Iron-Spider” makes some fateful decisions.
AMERICAN WAY #2 of 8 by John Ridley and Georges Jeanty. In the wake of Old Glory’s death is America ready for a new hero? And what if that hero is “different?” Highly recommended.
BATMAN #651 by James Robinson and Don Kramer. It’s “One Year Later” and another Gotham villain is dead. And how did Harvey Bullock get back on the force?
BLACK PANTHER #14 by Reginald Hudlin and Scot Eaton. It’s part one of the five-part “Bride of the Panther” storyline. King T’Challa is looking for a Queen. NO Arsenio Hall appearances, guaranteed!
CAPTAIN AMERICA #16 by Ed Brubaker and Mike Perkins. Cap gets lucky lookin’ for Bucky! And yet he still can’t relax…
CATWOMAN #53 by Will Pfeifer and David and Alvaro Lopez. It’s “One Year Later” and a (really) new member is added to the supporting cast. Her name is “Helena.”
DAREDEVIL #83 by Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark. Foggy Nelson takes a turn for the worse and Matt gets sent into the prison’s General Population. Fisticuffs ensue.
HAWKGIRL #50 by Walt Simonson and Howard Chaykin. It’s “One Year Later” and… Oh heck, it’s Simonson and Chaykin! This is the “Must-Read” comic of the week!
HELLBLAZER #218 by Denise Mina and Leonardo Manco. Constantine continues his struggle against empathy while we learn more about that monk they buried alive.
INCREDIBLE HULK #93 by Greg Pak and Carlo Pagulayan. “Planet Hulk” continues and some fool gives the Hulk a really big axe.
JSA CLASSIFIED #10 by Stuart Moore and Paul Gulacy. “One Year Later” Vandal Savage is back with a mad on for Green Lantern. Some immortals never learn.
LOVELESS #5 by Brian Azzarello and Marcelo Frusin. Wrapping up the first story-arc of this post-Civil War adventure as the locals try to bring the Cutters to heel.
NEW AVENGERS #17 by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato. New artist, major new threat and a Ms. Marvel guest appearance all add up to “Fun!”
NEXT WAVE: AGENTS OF HATE #3 by Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen. Giant robots, dirty cops and nuclear weapons as only Warren Ellis can write them!
SHE-HULK 2 #6 by Dan Slott and Juan Bobillo. The hormones fly as the trial of Starfox begins. And how does the Awesome Android cope with a broken heart?
SQUADRON SUPREME #1 by J. Michael Straczynski and Gary Frank. The government assembles the most powerful heroes on Earth. And plans to control them how???
STORM #2 of 6 by Eric Jerome Dickey and Avalon-David Yardin. The first meeting between Storm and the kid who will grow up to be the Black Panther.
SUPREME POWER: HYPERION #5 of 5 by J. Michael Straczynski and Dan Jurgens. The final battle between Hyperion and the poor dopes they sent to get him.
SUPERGIRL AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #16 by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson. If you chase something across the universe at light-speed for days on end don’t act all surprised if things are different when you stop. A lesson in special relativity from Professors Waid and Kitson.
ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #28 by Mark Millar and Greg Land. President Thor! Ultimate Super-Skrull! And what about those flesh-eating FF Zombies from another universe?
WOLVERINE #40 by Daniel Way and Javier Saltares. With his memory now restored, Logan is working his way down a very select list, one on which no one wishes to be.
X-FACTOR #5 by Peter David and Dennis Calero. Beaten almost to death, Siryn is now tied to a theatre seat and threatened with the unspeakable: a screening of “Elektra.”
X-MEN #189 by Peter Milligan and Salvador Larroca. Is Gambit the new Death or is Death just last year’s Gambit? Apocalypse and his latest Horseman presented for your reading pleasure.
Plus awesome trade paperbacks like SEVEN SOLDIERS, VOL. 2 by Grant Morrison and Friends; BLACK PANTHER: WHO IS THE BLACK PANTHER by Reginald Hudlin and John Romita Jr.; and TOP TEN: THE 49ERS by Alan Moore and Gene Ha. You must read these books. They’re on the test.
And don’t forget the latest issue of PREVIEWS, because there aren’t enough comics this week.
You need to be thinking about comics due three months from now.
