Weekly Purchases

A nice mix this week of books.  We’ll be updating reviews throughout the week.

Monthly Comics

Agents of Atlas #6 – The team heads to see Namor.  This series gets a stay for another month and not being dumped from my pull list.

Astonishing Tales #5 – As usual 3 out of the 4 stories are really good.  The Punisher/Wolverine team up continues to be fun as well as Iron Man 2020.  The Shiver Man is a character I’m unfamiliar with but the story and art definitely got me interested.  And the Mojoworld story is ok, but not great.  Overall, Astonishing Tales is a great read and worth the read if not buy.

Batman and Robin #1 – I tend to be unimpressed by Grant Morrison and find a lot of what he does to be over rated.  Batman R.I.P. was horrible and Final Crisis barely readable.  I was pleasantly surprised by this first issue and his take on the new dynamic duo.  We’ll see if he can keep it up.

Black Panther #5 – The story continues of Storm’s attempt to save the Black Panther as the possible new Panther must make a decision to take up the mantle.

Captain Britain and MI13 Annual #1 – Both stories revolve around Captain Britain and Megan’s relationship and where she is.  A big meh.

Dark Avengers #5 – Osborn goes on the air to discuss his team of Avengers as Marvel Boy realizes that he’s not on a team with choir boys.

Deadpool: Suicide Kings #3 – Definitely entertaining, I just don’t get why this isn’t an arc in the regular series, other than just making some more money.

the Mighty Avengers #25 – My brain’s bigger than yours.  Hank Pym’s Avengers take on the Fantastic Four.  What I thought would be a lame story has started off pretty well.

New Avengers: The Reunion #4 – The end of this limited series.  The whole point was to set of Ronin and Mockingbird’s relationship status, something that would have played out much better in the regular New Avengers ongoing series.

New Mutants #2 – This series has taken some lessons from the recent X-book launches going straight into the action and playing off history already laid out in decades of previously written books.  I’ll admit I kind of enjoyed Young X-Men which this series replaced, not sure of the switch off yet.

Secret Six #10 – The team takes on a new client as Savage and Bane’s relationship grows more complicated.  One of the best team books out there and one of DC comics’ best series.

TimeStorm 2009-2099 #2 – The future is rocked by the past as everyone tries to figure out what is going on.

TimeStorm 2009-2099 Spider-man #1 – This issue focuses on the meeting of the two Spider-men.  As usual, not sure why this has to be a separate issue and couldn’t of been a part of the limited series.

War of Kings #4 – The Starjammers take Lilandra to the Shi’ar homeworld in an attempt to end the war.
