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:
Batman Annual #4
Batman is gone…but Bruce Wayne is alive? What does that mean for Gotham City? And who is Bruce Wayne without Batman? This special annual delves deeper into the mystery building, and whether or not Bruce can ever really escape from the shadow of the Dark Knight.
Morning Glories #48
I STILL LOVE MORNING GLORIES. I have volumes 1-8 and am anxiously awaiting volume 9. This issue promises a “Debate.”
Rick And Morty #6
The Adult Swim series has been taking the world by storm ever since it debuted in 2013. It’s dark brand of intelligent humor is unmatched in the cultural zeitgeist right now. Each episode of the show is crafted to be entertaining and thought-provoking. The comics offer another window into the world of “Rick and Morty,” with issue 6 providing a standalone “Ball Fondlers” tale.
Rick and Morty take a backseat in this one-shot, action-packed Ball Fondlers adventure! Follow the unlikely quintet of heroes known as the Ball Fondlers on an explosive, high stakes mission that takes them deep into jungles of Central America as they attempt to save a United States Senator from a hostile rebel army.
MODOK Assassin #5
I have not read issues 1-4, but what issue 5 suggests is so crazy, I am tempted to read it and then go back.
The Merc with a Mind’s first solo series comes to a HEAD! With the life of the woman who’s stolen his heart hanging in the balance, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing races to put an end to Baron Mordo’s murderous bid for power. Will M.O.D.O.K. save the day? One thing’s for sure: He will live up to his design? Parental Advisory
Modok has a love interest? He is somehow fighting Baron Mordo…a Dr. Strange villain? “Parental Advisory?” If you have been reading this, tell me how it is in the comments, because it sounds BONKERS.
Wonder Woman 77 Special #2
Lynda Carter Wonder Woman stories are good. Apparently, she fights Cheetah, a super-powered political hitperson, and something that is undead (Grundy, zombies, DC’s resolve to be terrible?). Sounds interesting enough to check out.
Hail Hydra #3
Rick Remender writing the character of Nomad just works for me. If you liked “All-New Captain America” by Rick Remender, this might be for you.
Billed as a “great jumping on point in the series,” Tim Seeley‘s “Revival” is as fresh and innovative as ever while offering a thriller premise with a fleshed out backstory.
The “Truth” arc comes to a conclusion and the solicitation teases possible death in The Daily Planet. Also John Romita is greatness.
