Big on the big boys–and, as a result, a pretty big list reads rather small.
- Adventures of Superman #3 (DC): Kindt on Supes? Cool.
- Animal Man Annual #2 (DC): Any time Lemire gets real, things get good. A focus on the Baker family sounds pretty real–even if “massive, slavering spiders” are involved.
- Batman Annual #2 (DC): Oh, yay! A Zero Year tie-in.
- Batman Incorporated #13 (DC): So, this is it, eh? Can’t wait to see how it turns out.
- Collider #1 (DC/Vertigo): Sounds interesting enough. By “interesting enough,” I obviously mean that it’s a Vertigo #1.
- The Wake #3 (DC/Vertigo): Is this where the series finally wakes up? I sure hope so. As you know, I’m never in favor of dropping out in the middle of a mini.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #24 (IDW): I fully expected to be off after #23. Would’ve been, too, except for the fact that I got sucked into the whole Leonardo reprogramming thing.
- Bedlam #8 (DC): Officially on the chopping block.
- Daredevil #29 (Marvel): #28 was just grand–dare I say a new classic. Looks like we’re not done with Matt’s past. Sweet.
- FF #10 (Marvel): Recently tweeted that FF’s my third favorite Marvel book. No, I wasn’t drinking at the time. My glass was totally on the desk. Fresh fact: Matt Fraction is at the top of his game and should be on everyone’s pull list–be it in the form of FF, Hawkeye, or our Book of the Week (7/3) Satellite Sam.
- Indestructible Hulk #11 (Marvel): Pains me to say it: also on the chopping block. Unfortunately, the House connection hasn’t played out as I had hoped.
- Uncanny X-Men #9 (Marvel): I wonder if this issue will go somewhere.
- X-Men #3 (Marvel): Brian Wood’s brought some X-Men back to the X-Men.
- 3 Guns #1 (BOOM!): Haven’t read 2 Guns. Wonder if that will make a difference. Guess I’ll find out soon enough.
- Uber #4 (Avatar): As I mentioned last month: I’m glad I didn’t give up on it.
What are you looking forward to this week?
