So. Many. Comics.
Reminder: I’ve boarded, bagged, and boxed myself into a maximum of five I&N Demand titles per week. Wasn’t easy this time around. But a nerd’s gotta do what a nerd’s gotta do.
And once again, DC’s the big budget buster of the week. Thing is, I&Nmates, they deserve it.
- Briggs Land #2 (Dark Horse)
- Harrow County #16 (Dark Horse): I&N Demand Panel for panel, one of the best reads going. Bunn’s a patient storyteller–and it’s terrifying, thanks, in part, to the intensity of Crook’s artwork. Makes me want to scream–in fear and in joy.
- Lady Killer 2 #2 (Dark Horse): I&N Demand #1 was a bloody mess–and it was wonderful. My eyebrows spent a bit more time than usual hanging out close to my hairline. No doubt about it: Joëlle Jones is killing it–and everyone; and Michelle Madsen’s colors are to die for.
- Action Comics #963 (DC)
- All-Star Batman #2 (DC)
- Astro City #38 (DC/Vertigo)
- Batgirl and The Birds of Prey #2 (DC)
- Deathstroke #2 (DC)
- Detective Comics #940 (DC): I&N Demand Tynion’s Bat-Team’s been a dream! Reads well on a couple of levels: the writing’s sharp as a Batarang and the topic’s timely as…a…Bat…watch.
- Doom Patrol #1 (DC/Young Animal): Just I&N Never did read Doom Patrol; so no investment or expectations here. Just gonna go for it and see what happens.
- The Flash #6 (DC)
- Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #4 (DC)
- New Superman #3 (DC): I&N Demand I didn’t love–or really like–#1; but I really loved #2–like really!
- Suicide Squad #2 (DC)
- Superwoman #2 (DC)
- Wonder Woman #6 (DC)
- Black Monday Murders #2 (Image)
- Stray Bullets: Sunshine & Roses #18 (Image)
- Symmetry #7 (Image)
- Black Panther #6 (Marvel): I&N Demand Glad I didn’t drop it after #4–after being battered and bruised, after being left Black Panther and blue, a result of the plodding exposition, which in retrospect, as seen through a swollen eye, was absolutely vital to Coates’ crafting his Wakanda, which was never one of my favorite Marvel U. destinations to begin with. (Savage Land, anyone–ugh.) Oh, yeah: glad: glad ’cause I lovedlovedlovedlovedlovedloved #5, which was a great singular experience, but was an even better result of meticulous world building. I’m all in.
- Mockingbird #7 (Marvel)
- Scarlet Witch #10 (Marvel)
- Cinema Purgatorio #5 (Avatar)
- The Forevers #1 (Black Mask): Just I&N A Black Mask #1. ‘Nuff said. (Just wish they were as generous with their #2s and their #3s. Just sayin’.
Avery’s Pick of the Week
- The Powerpuff Girls #3 (IDW)
