Pick of the Week – The Strain #1

I’ve read a good chunk of this week’s picks so very confident in this week’s top five.  The top spot goes to The Strain #1 a new take on the vampire mythos from Guillermo del Toro.  The comic can jokingly be called vampires on a plane, but the tense feeling over the standoff that is involved around that particular scene just shows how amazing this comic series may be.  The vampire story has been done a ton, but this one had me on the edge nervous as to what would happen next.

  • The Strain #1 – see above
  • 27: Second Set #4 – The fourth issue of the second volume of the series ends on a high note.  The ending is awesome and I can’t wait to see what volume three has in store.
  • PIGS #4 – KGB assassins running around the US.  The first issue had a major shock and this one throws in another holy crap moment as we learn the fate of the KGB sleeper cell.
  • Locke & Key: Clockworks #3 – I’m new to Locke & Key but absolutely love it.
  • Avengers: X-Sanction #1 – Cable is out to kill the Avengers in the beginning of Marvel’s next big event.  Sign me up!
