A lot of books this week, a nice mix of everything.
The Amazing Spider-Man #583 – It took 3 printings for me to finally get a hold of the book that’s been reported on everywhere. All that noise over a 5 page extra story!? Cute, but not worth the hype.
Avengers: The Initiative #21 – Clor’s on the loose and there’s one team on warriors to stop him.
Captain America #46 – Brubaker as usual mixes an excellent amount of ret-conned history with modern story telling. Artfully weaving the past and the present.
Fantastic Four #563 – A nice story as Ben celebrates his engagement and Dr. Doom awaits some guests.
Final Crisis #7 – The series started out a convoluted mess and ended in a similar fashion. I expected nothing less, DC shows how NOT to do a big event.
Marvels: Eye of the Camera #3 – Is the super hero phenomenon helping society or hurting?
The New Avengers #49 – What deal will Cage cut with the devil to get his child back, and we learn babies don’t smell….
NYX: No Way Home #5 – It looked like these characters would be folded into the greater X-Men universe, now not so sure.
Runaways #6 – The Runaways continue the fight.
The Umbrella Academy #3 – Who would think a rock band lead singer would write such a great series. We learn Number 5’s story and his goal. And I have to say Cha Cha and Hazel are straight out of a Tarantino flick – “Who needs drugs when you have cookies and guns?”. Such a fun read.
Unknown Soldier #4 – Moses works to get the children safe.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz #1 and #2 – I’ve read wonderful reviews of this Marvel series, I thought I’d give it a shot.
X-Force #11 – Who is Eli Bard?
Young X-Men #10 – The mystery of Cipher is explained.
Criminal: Bad Night – If you’re a fan of crime/noir stories Ed Brubaker has been putting out this wonderful series. I highly recommend it.
08: A Graphic Diary of the Campaign Trail – Michael Crowley and Dan Goldman tell the tale of Crowley’s experience on the campaign trail of this historic election.
