  • All-New Wolverine #7
  • Dark Knight III: The Master Race #4
  • Injection #9
  • Outcast by Kirkman & Azaceta #18
  • Saga #36
  • Sex #27
  • Sex Criminals #15
  • Velvet #14

What’s gonna be good this week?

I’m voting for Sex. This book continues to live on well past what I thought I thought it would. I’m loving it, but I’ve always been worried others didn’t. Nonetheless, after a 4 month hiatus, I’m glad to see this book back to print.

Sex Criminals, as well, seems to be on the same schedule as Sex–though a bit lower in issues printed. The delay on this book is likely due to Zdarsky and Fraction’s other major commitments. This book is a whole lotta fun. I don’t think I need to tell you that.

Outcast continues to burn the slowest, most fragrant candle. Tell me more about the demons, Robert…

All-New Wolverine is still my favorite X-Book at the moment. This series is killer all around. And in many ways.

  • Saga #36

This remains one of the last two comics I’m pulling and between this and Invincible, I’d choose this one without much hesitation. That being said, I still haven’t caught up (the pile is getting ever larger), so maybe that’s changed. I really should find out.

  • Art Ops #7
  • Batman #51
  • Dark Knight III: The Master Race #4
  • Justice League #49

A small yet exciting week for me. Art Ops has been a really fun comic with a great hook and some surprising twists. The mix of “high concept” and sometimes slapstick humor reminds me of the sillier moments in Grant Morrison’s classic Doom Patrol run, which is one of my favorite comics ever.

The DARKSEID WAR rages on in this week’s Justice League. With DC Rebirth looming in the future, I am curious to see if the massive event Geoff Johns has been crafting will impact the future of the DCU down the line. This does feel like too “big” of a story to just be forgotten after the reboot, I mean “rebirth”.

Speaking of rebirth, this week marks the end of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run on Batman. Obviously, as a massive Bat-Fan, I am sad to see them go, but this creative team certainly succeeded in the uneviable task of following up the modern Batman epic by Grant Morrison (there’s that name again…). Their run was a great, big superhero spectacle with some amazing art, and will certainly be remembered as an essential addition to the character’s legacy.

  • Faith #4 (of 4)
  • X-Files #1

This week, I am most excited for X-Files #1, the new ongoing book from the creative team that gave us the X-Files seasons 10 and 11 comics.  This series will be set after the latest TV miniseries, but it is unclear whether or not it will build on those events. I’m hoping that it does, but since another TV miniseries is in the works to follow up on that overarching storyline, my guess is we’ll be seeing filler cases, so that they aren’t immediately retconned by the next TV show.

The Faith miniseries comes to an end this week, which would be sad, except Valiant has already announced a Faith ongoing series by the same creative team.  Hooray!  I’m always up for more Faith.
