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)
