Looks like a solid week: a bunch of stack stalwarts and four fingers worth of freshness.
- Mind MGMT #8 (Dark Horse): #7 put Henry and Meru on the road: an excellent transition–but to what? Can’t wait to find out.
- Action Comics #17 (DC): Here we go again: Morrison’s making his way out–with a bang, I hope. Expectations, however, have been comic-creator kryptonite of late. So, who knows, you know?
- Batwoman #17 (DC): Stunning cover. The promise of a “[m]assive conclusion.” J.H. Williams III. That’s pretty must “all ye need to know.” Ye also might like to know that Williams III will be handing over the art duties to Trevor McCarthy starting with the next issue. Might fall from the pull-list as a result.
- Wonder Woman #17 (DC): Has been consistently good. In that, it’s been consistently shy of great. Therein lies the true wonder.
- Harbinger #9 (Valiant): Dysart’s been building his corner of the Valiant Universe with a rare verve. A wonderful place to get lost in for twenty-two pages.
- X-O Manowar #10 (Valiant): Marching toward Planet Death with renewed energy.
- Daredevil #23 (Marvel): What will Waid and Samnee do–what can they do?–to follow up the Coyote storyline? We’ll see.
- Indestructible Hulk #4 (Marvel): Have it on good authority that my House connection–see #3–wasn’t too far off. Looking forward to seeing how it plays out.
- G.I. Joe #1 (IDW): Banking on Fred Van Lente for this reach buy. His Archer & Armstrong has been remarkably balanced. May play well here, too.
- Justice League of America #1 (DC): For no good reason. I mean, let’s be honest: Geoff Johns hasn’t had much to offer the New 52–other than reasons not to buy core titles.
- Kill Shakespeare: Tide of Blood #1 (IDW): I didn’t buy the first Kill Shakespeare series. Sounds fun, though. If I find it, I’ll flip through it and go from there.
- Revival #7 (Image): Losing interest as quickly as it was won. Not a good sign. Seems like Seeley has lost focus: the storytelling hasn’t been very good over the last couple of issues.
- The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Gun #1 (Oni): Just getting into the The Sixth Gun. Don’t want to let this slip by, especially if it answers some questions–questions I haven’t even asked yet!
Not too bad, right?
Tell me: what are you looking forward to tomorrow?
