There is no way–NO WAY!–I’ll end up with more than ten books this week. Here’s the lucky lot:
- Batman #20 (DC): It’s not a Bridge to Nowhere, after all; it’s the Tightrope to Year Zero!
- Justice League of America #3 (DC): Geoff John’s been a decent enough front man so far. Back up vocalist, Matt Kindt, may steal the show, however; heck, he might end up taking over the band at some point–who knows?
- Suicide Squad #20 (DC): What brings this title back to What’s Up? after five months or so? One big reason: Ales Kot, fresh off of his psychedelic work on Change (Image) takes over the writing duties from Adam Glass.
- X #1 (Dark Horse): Willing to give it another shot–even after a pretty run-of-the-mill #0–because I’ve enjoyed Duane Swierczynski’s work on Bloodshot.
- The Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror #4 (IDW): As legitimately retro as a comic could be! The real horror here: #4 brings this magnificent mini to a close.
- Chin Music #1 (Image): Steve Niles and Tony Harris? Yes, please!
- Archer & Armstrong #0 (Valiant): I hate dinosaurs.
- Harbinger #12 (Valiant): Consistently solid. Dysart’s developed a dynamic little book here, all while avoiding the typical traps that catch even the most seasoned of superhero scribes.
- Battlefields: The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova #6 (Dynamite): Speaking of solid: Ennis is as good as it gets.
- Uber #1 (Avatar): Kieron Gillen’s not my favorite writer (see: the awful pre-NOW! Uncanny X-Men), but this sounds interesting enough. Comic-day decision.
What are you looking forward to this week?
