Clean Room, Dark Horse Comics, Dept. H, Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt, Matt Kindt, Sharlene Kindt, Vertigo
The trend continues this week: DC is reborn–with a vengeance!
- Dept. H #5 (Dark Horse): I&N Demand Re: #4: The Kindts guided us deeper and deeper still into the sea and into Mia’s psyche. Let’s keep going.
- Action Comics #962 (DC)
- Batgirl #2 (DC)
- Clean Room #11 (DC/Vertigo): I&N Demand Re: #10: “Welcome to the Dark Room,” indeed! Gail Simone pushes the peril pedal to the metal; and Jon Davis-Hunt keeps pace with some creepy-ass smiles and, umm, a pony man. Felt really good to be appalled like that in that moment. Clean Room–consistently engaging and legitimately horrifying—is one of my favorite reads.
- Deathstroke #1 (DC)
- Detective Comics #939 (DC): I&N Demand Tynion’s delivering a solid story line that’s 100% Bat. Very different from King’s Batman in execution, but effective nevertheless. What’s not to like? Daddy issues, ethical dilemmas, geeky one-upmanship, plenty of action, Clayface–it’s all good.
- The Flash #5 (DC)
- Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #3 (DC)
- Lucifer #9 (DC/Vertigo)
- The Omega Men TP (DC)
- Wonder Woman #5 (DC)
- Renato Jones: The One % #4 (Image): I&N Demand Crazy. Gorgeous. Kaare. Effing. Andrews.
- She Wolf #3 (Image)
- Steve Rogers: Captain America #4 (Marvel): I&N Demand Just as Tom King has saved Batman, Nick Spencer has saved Captain America. See: I love the Hydra twist and certainly trust Spencer enough to see it through to a place that suits our beloved hero. Re:#3: More twists and turns, betrayals and burns–and The Taskmaster. Could’ve saved the twists and turns and the betrayals and burns for the later issues, actually. I mean, The Taskmaster’s pretty much a Leatherman of comic book awesomeness.
- Generation Zero #1 (Valiant)
- Sombra #2 (BOOM!)
Avery’s Pick of the Week
- Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? #72 (DC)
What are you looking forward to this week?
