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:
All New X-Men Special #1
Bendis’ excellent story gets an added boost from guest stars Spider-Man and The Hulk. I have a feeling that this might be “special.”
All New X-Men #17
Big things are beginning to happen in the Battle For The Atom. We have got HIGHLIGHT FOR SPOILER: three sets of X-Men on the field now. Killer. Who’s telling the truth? Who’s lying? Who walks away? Who’s dragged? We’ll find out…
This is pretty much my favorite ever as it has been established that Jeff Lemire is my secret sweet boo. But seriously, the concept + long-form storytelling + beautiful and sketchy Lemire art = FABULOUS!
Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth #6
Todd may not be the ugliest kid on earth, but that other guy on the cover might be. Plus, he has cross guns. The super-rendered art is just really pretty visuals of an ugly world. Love this series.
Vertigo is still great…weakened by the loss of multiple titles, but still dropping interesting stories on the populace. This one looks beautiful and crazy. I’m on board for issue #1.
Star Wars #1 / $1 Edition
Brian Wood’s Star Wars for a buck is a no-brainer. Go get you some.
