I’ll take one of everything, please.
- Mister X: Eviction #2 (Dark Horse): #1 was one of my favorite books of May. Looking forward to this–and not just because of its gorgeous cover:
- Astro City #1 (DC): I don’t have any history with this title, but I’m willing to give it–and Kurt Busiek–a shot.
- Dial H #13 (DC): The funeral march has begun–for, arguably, DC’s best, certainly most consistently creative, monthly title.
- Bedlam #7 (Image): With it comes a new artist: Ryan Browne. And just like that, I may become a former reader of Bedlam. Or I may love it more. That’s why we read ’em, folks.
- East of West #3 (Image): I’d really like this to knock my socks off the way Hickman’s own The Manhattan Projects does. Chances are it won’t, but I’d still like to like it. #2 was a decent step in that direction.
- Ten Grand #2 (Image): Sure, JMS is a name, but this story seems like it could be just more of the same. If #2 breaks away from the pack, even just a bit, I’ll stick with it. If not, I’m off.
- All-New X-Men #12 (Marvel): It is what it is–or even slightly less than that now that Brian Wood’s in X-Town.
- Daredevil: Dark Nights #1 (Marvel): Just what I need: another DD mini by a DD legend–in this case, Lee Weeks. Oy.
- Daredevil: End of Days #8 (Marvel): A real surprise. With the names on it, shouldn’t’ve been; but I don’t think anyone expected it to be this good.
- Winter Soldier #19 (Marvel): Last issue whispered, “Don’t leave yet.”
- Archer & Armstrong #10 (Valiant): Consistently solid.
- Red Team #3 (Dynamite): Damn thing’s gonna take off. I can feel it. Check out the cover, for God’s sake. I have a joke about it that doesn’t really work, but I’m gonna throw it out there anyway: Jesus Christ! Talk about having someone in your cross hairs!
- Rachel Rising #17 (Abstract Studio): Terry Moore’s rising, too. No one does panel-to-panel suspense better than this guy.
- Shadowman #7 (Valiant): No longer in the shadow of the other Valiant books. In fact, it’s starting to cast its own, thanks to Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher.
- Suicide Risk #2 (BOOM!): #1 wasn’t remarkable–or if it was, it wasn’t for the right reasons. To be fair, I’ll give it one more try.
- Uber #2 (Avatar): Same here.
What are you looking forward to this week?
