Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Top Pick: The Mighty Thor #706 (Marvel) – As if #705 wasn’t epic and sad enough, let’s deal with even more sad. Bash Marvel all you want for wanting a male Thor, I love Odinson too, but this was consistently one of their best titles, and Jane has been an incredible, worthy, and Mighty Thor!

The Despicable Deadpool #299 (Marvel) – We are almost to the end of a great character redefining run. Deadpool has always been fun, but Duggan has been killing it on this title for years. He will be missed, and I can’t wait to see how this ends.

The Hunt for Wolverine #1 (Marvel) – I get that killing characters off and bringing them back is so comics, especially at Marvel the last few years. However, this is Wolverine. This is Logan. This is the little kid in me cheering loudly. Leave my boy alone, Marvel! I am hyped.

Avengers #690 (Marvel) – What a ride it’s been! I’m excited to see how they wrap all of this up and set up the characters for the multiple upcoming new #1s!

Kill or Be Killed #18 (Image) – This is such a great story that breaks the medium of comics. A fantastic modern take on pulp crime by the masters of that art form.

Top Pick: Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #19 (Marvel) – Fun. That’s what this series is to me with each issue feeling like Indiana Jones in space, just starring a lesbian woman. The twists and turns are entertaining and you never know how Aphra is going to get out of a situation, or what trouble she’ll cause. Pure entertainment with each issue.

Abbott #4 (BOOM! Studios) – A solid read, each issue has a gritty sense about it and the setting has been fantastic.

Black [AF]: Widows & Orphans #1 (Black Mask Studios) – A new entry in the world of Black, I want to see what direction this series goes.

Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. #2 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – The best of the Young Animal series, this one shook things up by taking us to an alternate Gotham. We’re still trying to figure out what that all means.

The Prisoner #1 (Titan Comics) – The classic television series comes to comics!

After the fallout of MILK WARS, Violet Paige finds herself in a Gotham City unlike any we have seen before. Ten years into the future, in a world without a Batman, Gotham City has been taken over by the Collective, with Gala acting as Head of Citystate. In a high-tech town with zero tolerance toward caped crusaders and masked vigilantes (except for those designed by Gala and her association of aristocratic artisans), what’s a woman who has vowed vengeance to do? And what’s happened to her mother, Rebecca Paige? Perhaps The Joker, now a sad clown who makes balloon toys shaped like tommy guns and machetes on the abandoned Gotham docks, has the answers. Find out for yourself as Mother Panic returns to a different Bat-time, different Bat-channel.

Top Pick: X-O Manowar #13 (Valiant) – For the first time in 13 issues, Aric is about to unleash the full force of the Manowar armour. After a story that has been about the failure of communication, this is going to be wonderful conclusion. If I could read only one issue this week, it’d be this.

Shadowman #1 (Valiant) – A new number one from my favorite publisher? Frig yeah.

Dark Nights: Metal #6 (DC Comics) – After a few stumbles late in the game, I’m curious to see if Snyder can pull out a homer or if he’s stuck on second base.

Bloodborne #2 (Titan Comics) – I started playing the game this series is based on after reading the comic, so now that I’ve some exposure to the universe I’m looking forward to diving back in.

Top Pick: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 (BOOM! Studios) –  MMPG #25 launches the “Shattered Grid” storyline which promises both plot and character development. The universe-shifting event promises to blend Rangers old and new, up against a seemingly impossible-to-beat opponent in Lord Drakkon. The team(s) are dealing with a weapon that shatters dimensions, and the rulebook, if there ever was one, is thrown entirely out the window. The dynamic action of the television series has always translated surprisingly well to the page, and as always, it’s the lovable teens at the heart of it all that keep MMPG on my shelf.

Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation #2 (BOOM! Studios) Everyone has a mother. Even the notorious Goblin King. When she enters the world of the Labyrinth, chasing after her own stolen babe, what will she discover? This prequel series is off to a strong start, expanding the world of the 80s cult classic in natural and exciting ways.

Top Pick: Avengers #686 (Marvel) – “No Surrender” continues and at this point I have no idea where it’s going. This event has delivered and keeps doing so. Even weekly, it has felt like it hasn’t slowed down and that release schedule has only enhanced the experience. Lots of fun and really entertaining.

Abbott #3 (BOOM! Studios) – A fantastic horror story that mixes mystery with a setting of the 1970s Detroit. Great characters. Great setting. The details are fantastic.

Daredevil #600 (Marvel) – It’s a 600th issue! Lets see how “special” this one is.

Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – Though this is a Young Animal series, it’s also one of the best “Bat” books out there. Brutal and entertaining, I can’t wait to see where this new volume goes.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #18 (Marvel) – Marvel has been amazing when it comes to their Star Wars comics and Aphra has stood out from the bunch with its Indiana Jones like kick-ass lead. The fact that Hera Syndulla is in the latest arc has me even more excited about this series.

DC’s Young Animal Gets a Remix in 2018 with new Titles and New Directions

Following the events of the DC/Young Animal crossover event “Milk Wars” this winter, the main titles of the DC’s Young Animal line will get a mix-up of their own, with new series titles and story directions. The pop-up imprint, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, continues to set the bar for innovation in comics, using the five-part event beginning January 31 to send each title back to #1, with strange and crazy new stories.

Beginning March 7, Shade has shed her alien identity, stepping out of her original Earth body into a new one. Shade, The Changing Woman begins as Loma, now free of the burdens of her past life, sets out to see more of her new home. But how will she cope when the madness she was forced to confront in the Milk Wars is now a mass of memory and confusion? To make things even more challenging, she’ll come face to face with the original Changing Man. Writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Marley Zarcone will continue to helm Loma’s adventures.

Then on March 21, after a year of multiverse-hopping, Cave Carson returns to a normal life of digging and cave-diving, but it just isn’t the same for the explorer. Time fast-forwards as Cave and his daughter Chloe are sucked into an all-new adventure—literally—when they go spelunking in a black hole! Cave Carson Has an Interstellar Eye continues with writer Jon Rivera and artist Michael Avon Oeming.

Then on March 28, follow Violet Paige as she finds herself in a Gotham City unlike anything she’s known before. Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. begins ten years into the future, in a world without a Batman, with Gotham City now in the hands of a Collective. In a high-tech town with zero tolerance toward caped crusaders, what’s a woman who has vowed vengeance to do? The series is written by Jody Houser with art by Tommy Lee Edwards and Ibrahim Moustafa.

Launching from the backup story in “Milk Wars” is Eternity Girla new miniseries from GLAAD Award-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio and Eisner Award-winning artist Sonny Liew. The series follows the tragedy of Caroline Sharp, a former superhero and super-spy whose cursed powers have left her hideously deformed and unable to die! Her only solution? Destroy the universe. This new series begins March 7.

The “Milk Wars” event kicks off in JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1 on January 31. The epically weird crossover adventure featuring characters from the JLA and DC’s Young Animal will continue throughout February.
