Hi, welcome to our weekly post where we tell you “What Comics to Watch For On Wednesday.” We are digging through decades of experience/research (not really) to find a few titles worth your time this week. It is good to note that we rarely suggest mid-run titles, because we try to provide good jumping on points or oddities that must be seen to believe.
First, let’s take a look at how we did last week. We recommended 5 titles to check out last week and we are going to look at the Ifanboy.com average community ratings for each book to see how our suggestions panned out.
1. Trillium #1 killed it and pulled out an average community rating of 4.8 out of 5. The flip book style was much appreciated.
2. Bendis’ top-notch work on All-New X-Men #15 garnered praise and an average community rating of 4.3 out of 5.
3. Superior Spider-Man’s still hanging in there as #15 grabbed a 4.2 average community rating and didn’t manage to kill the Hobgoblin.
4. Number 4 on our list is sad, because even in it’s demise, Dial H #15 (last issue) could only lock down a 4 out of 5 average community rating. Cest la vie.
5. Sidekick #1 apparently underwhelmed as our lowest performer from last week with a 3.3 average community score.
Now to this week’s offerings:
Zero Year reaches it’s climactic moment. Shocker…Bruce Wayne becomes Batman. Bet it will still be great to read.
Walking Dead #113
I have a feeling that Rick is going to die soon. Things are picking up to a fever pitch. You got to get in on this series!
Thor: God Of Thunder #11
The end of something truly beautiful and entertaining, issue #11 wraps the historically great story of Gorr and the three Thors.
Herobear and The Kid #1
Reprinting of the popular indie series merits you checking it out if you missed it the first time.
Astro City #3
We can almost guarantee that unless Kurt Busiek goes crazy, every Astro City issue will be suggested in this column. It’s just too good to not recommend!
The Marvel Main Event begins here! Infinity launches with issue 1. Thanos ain’t rising anymore…he’s here.
Everyone’s (‘cept me) favorite comic book picks up after it’s long break. Fans and new readers alike will dive into this cinematic story and leave satisfied.
