Here’s just a quick preview of the week in comics with some thoughts on some of the books I’m picking up this week. For a full look at what is coming out this week and every week, check out our Comics page.
Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of the “Man of Steel”, so typically I stay away from the Superman centered books. As Action creeps towards #1000 though, I have been picking it up and I have been enjoying this current arch with Booster Gold. It helps that I really like Booster Gold.
Coming off of the big Girl Power team up in the “ManSlaughter” story, looks like we’re going to get back to business with the usual Birds of Prey in this upcoming arch. I wouldn’t be surprised if they got back around to working in some of the other girls on a more permanent role moving forward though.
Am I the only one who stops reading before the Secret Squirrel pages start? Regardless! The gang keeps plugging along and we get to find out what happened to Scrappy in this one. I never liked Scrappy to begin with.
The Avengers #675:
The weekly, 16 parter starts this week! In the description for this book, Marvel uses the words “End of an era” and says it will “Define the future of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!”. Needless to say… Gotta pick it up!
Another “Old Man” book? They couldn’t have just come up with another term other than “Old Man”? Eh, either way, the book actually sounds really cool. The country is divided into territories controlled by supervillains! Sounds cool to me.
Secret Warriors #12:
Of the recent cancellations, I can’t say I’m totally surprised this one got the axe, but I can say that I’m bummed because I was really enjoying it. It’s really the only “Inhuman” book that I’ve been reading regularly. Let’s see how they finish it out.
WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Special #1:
2 years ago, AJ Styles made his WWE debut in the Royal Rumble match, so this comic features a story about the debut of AJ Styles… Written by AJ Styles! How cool is that?? It’s also written by the super talented Michael Kingston of the amazing wrestling based comic book “Headlocked”
