Pick of the Week – Supercrooks #1

Mark Millar has been either hit or miss lately.  The miss being the second volume of Kick-Ass and hit being Superior.  That being said, his new series, Supercrooks is out this week and the idea is simple, villains doing a heist.  That seems to be a popular plot lately, but Millar I’m sure will bring his usual over the top flair and teaming up with Leinil Yu on art isn’t shabby either.  The series will sink or swim, I’m hoping it’s the latter.

  • Supercrooks #1 – see above
  • Smoke and Mirrors #1 – A magician gets thrown into a world of magic.  It’s been done before, but something about this draws me in.
  • Rebel Blood #1 – I flipped through this quickly, and it has me really wanting to dig into it (damn reading backlog)
  • Heart #4 – We get to see how this mini-series ends.  I love MMA, so this comic by Blair Butler has been an anticipated read for me with every release.
  • Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 #1 – The legend Stan Lee teams up with Archie comics. I’m fascinated to see what comes of it.
