Another sizable stack–with one remarkable difference. Let’s see if you can pick up on it.
To All the Books I’ve Bought Before
- The Answer #3 (Dark Horse): Unquestionably a good time.
- Clone #5 (Image): The end of the first arc may be the perfect time to bid this underperformer adieu.
- Fatale #13 (Image): Consistently terrific. Impossibly defies expectations with each new offering.
- FF# 5 (Marvel): Fraction and Allred are paired so well on this otherwise inconsequential title. Off beat? Right on!
- Fury: My War Gone By #10 (Marvel): “The final arc begins.” Don’t think I can express to you how those words make me feel. OK, I’ll give it a shot: Ain’t good. How’s that?
- Deathmatch #4 (BOOM!): Frivolous? Sure. Worth reading? You bet!
- Battlefields #5: The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova Part 2 (Dynamite): Ennis at his very best.
- Red Team #2 (Dynamite): Wow! Three Ennis books in one week? Happy Easter, indeed!
- Rachel Rising #15 (Abstract Studio): I’m all caught up and wanting Moore! No self-respecting comic nerd should be without this title on his or her list.
- The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Gun #2 (Oni): I’m through the first two trades of The Sixth Gun, waiting on the next two. (Go Amazon!)
You Always Remember Your First
- East of West #1 (Image): Miss an Image #1? Not a chance! Seriously, though, while I missed out on Hickman’s The Manhattan Projects (I did order Volume 1 recently and am awaiting its arrival, however), I’ll not make the same mistake here. Definitely worth a shot.
- Green Hornet #1 (Dynamite): Mark Waid. ‘Nuff said.
Did you pick up on it? Of course you did. It’s yet another first: no DC books this week. That’s kinda huge. A little light on the ol’ Marvel, too, now that I think of it.
Something’s afoot, friends.
What are you looking forward to tomorrow?
