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 horrifyingis 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?
