Hi, welcome to our weekly post where we tell you “What Comics to Watch For On Wednesday.” We are doing our best to recommend 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.
This week’s offerings:
In this week’s weird, outside the box selection, I have chosen Cloaks. “Street magicians mixed with Wall Street” is a weird combo, but when BOOM! Studios has been taking shots on weird combos, it has been working.
Death of Wolverine #1
Marvel is promising to finally kill off everyone’s favorite Canuck. Not sure if I believe it or that I am falling for the gimmick. Somebody did, though because Marvel has trusted this milestone in comics to Charles Soule, their new exclusive toy. BIG things coming with up and coming BIG names. That might get my attention. Probably not, though.
God Hates Astronauts #1
Ryan Browne’s esteemed comic series is released in issues starting this September. Crazy doesn’t begin to describe it. If you want a sneak peak, check our Ryan’s wordpress site. Absolutely ridiculous in scope and talent.
Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool #0
Let’s see what happens when a writer I like (Gerry Duggan) handles a character that I do not (Deadpool) and one I love that I am worried will be corrupted (Hawkeye). I just have to remember that Duggan made Infinite Horizon… everyone should. I have Deadpool: Dead Presidents on my shelf at home, because I heard it was good. Maybe this will be good too…people will probably buy it anyways.
The New 52 Futures End Swamp Thing #1
Swamp Thing was good. People are saying that “New 52 Future’s End” books have been good. Perhaps we will be treated to another good Swamp Thing book and not another Rotworld.
