Pick of the Week – Age of X: Alpha
There’s a thick pile of comic books coming out this week, and there’s quite a few to choose from to be the top of the pile and be the pick of the week. Though I haven’t read it, I’d have to go with Age of X: Alpha, which has the makings to be a classic X-Men tale in an alternate world.
- Age of X: Alpha – Check above for why this got the top spot. An alternate world? Check. Great art? Check! A guaranteed classic.
- New York Five #1 – Brian Wood’s original New York Four is a great read and I’m sure one you missed. Fantastic writing that originally came out under DC’s Minx line. This is one series that deserved a sequel.
- Artifacts #5 – Ron Marz has given us four great issues so far, we’ll see how the beginning of the second arc fairs.
- Captain America #614 – Ed Brubaker is a maestro when it comes to his Captain America epic. Bucky Barnes is facing a trial, and it’ll be fascinating to see where Brubaker goes with this.
- Punisher: In the Blood #3 – The original Punisher is back! We’ve missed you and so happy you’re here to taken on the criminal scum bags.
