We Are Comic Reviewers

Join us on our quest for ALL THE COMICS!

Comic Picks of the Week

Alright, this week there are two books that I am so excited about, I may have to buy them digitally because I CAN’T WAIT till I get to my comic store tomorrow. Ahem. So starting out this week’s picks is……

Writer: Al Ewing  Artist: Lee Garbett  Cover Artist: Jenny Frison

If you’ve read the Young Avengers, you’ll know what a loveable scamp  Loki has turned into. Well, he’s still pretty evil, but adorable all the same. I legitimately don’t even know what the premise of this book is. I’m honestly just buying it because of Loki. I promise a review first thing tomorrow, with actual information in it.

Next on my “omg give it to me now” list is….

Writer: C. Willow Wilson  Artist: Adrian Alphona  Cover Artist: Sara Pichelli

I can’t even. Captain Marvel has been a huge success, and I am extremely excited about adding a new Ms. Marvel to the universe. I hope  getting to know Kamala Khan is just as exciting as getting to know Carol Danvers has been.

Okay, so those are the two books I’m pinning all my hopes and dreams on this week, and here are the books that have already made it through the gauntlet of judgement to get on my pull list.

By: Jeff Lemire

Trillium #6 By: Jeff Lemire

Last issue of Trillum was a huge mind-f@!#. If you’re not reading it, you should be. This issue continues to explore events that unfolded in Trillium #5, and brings us another step closer to the end of everything!

Writer: Greg Rucka  Artist: Michael Lark

Writer: Greg Rucka
Artist: Michael Lark

Forever continues to be one of my favorite new heroines from last year, and she is a great example of Greg Rucka’s ability to craft great characters. This issue continues to expand the world and current story arc of the series, giving us insight into the families and those that resist them.

Writer: Frank J. Barbiere Artist: Chris Mooneyham

Writer: Frank J. Barbiere
Artist: Chris Mooneyham

Recently, Fabian Grey has entered the realm of piracy using the skills of great literary heroes to aid this endeavor. Chris Mooneyham’s art continues to astound in this pulp adventures series, and it’s always fun to see how Barbiere incorporates the skills of Sherlock, Dracula and Co. to aid Fabian. Also, pirates.

Writer: Nathan Edmondson Artist: Phil Noto

Writer: Nathan Edmondson
Artist: Phil Noto

Why are there alligators on the cover? Oh wait, it’s Black Widow, why not? Edmondson and Noto have done a great job setting up Black Widow as a character with complex motivations and a history of killing. This issue looks to be as action-packed as the first two, but hopefully sheds some light on some of Natasha Romanov’s goals.

Writer: Paul Jenkins  Artist: Humberto Ramos

Writer: Paul Jenkins
Artist: Humberto Ramos

For those of you into Constantine/Angels and Demon type stories – this is the book for you. There’s conspiracy, a faithless detective, and guys in creepy latex masks. Humberto Ramos is nailing the art for this title, and I’m expecting some answers – and more questions – from this issue.

Writer: Mike Carey  Artist: Jorge Coehlo  Cover Artist: Stephanie Hans

Writer: Mike Carey
Artist: Jorge Coehlo
Cover Artist: Stephanie Hans

Suicide Risk #10 is a one-shot delving into the book’s origins. I absolutely loved the the last one-shot, Suicide Risk #5 with guest artist Joelle Jones. This issue has guest artist Jorge Coehlo (Polarity), and I’m very interested to learn where the powers of this universe originated from.

That rounds out our picks of the day! As always, comment if you think we missed something great.
