What’s not to be excited about this week?

Rasputin is my jam. This book continues to deliver a beautiful and fantastic story. I need more. Always.

Mother. Effin. Spider-Gwen. Basically this is the comic that I didn’t know I wanted all my life. Since reading the Edge of Spider-Verse issue featuring this character I have been desperaye for more of her story. It seems that I should probably read Spider-Man and the Spider-Verse… but to save my wallet, I’ve opted to just get the Spider-Gwen series.

Roche Limit… I finally re-read issues #1-4 and I’m sort of worried that the payoff in issue #5 isn’t going to be the payoff I want. I’m still willing to give this series a chance and doubt my doubts… but I have my worries. The art has been great and the theory and story have been compelling, but the direction seems strange. Maybe a final re-read of the series after the next issue will be in order.

Finally, The Wicked + The Divine. Kieron Gillen has really been killing it on this series. Frankly all of his independent stuff has been fantastic as of late–as far as I’m concerned. McKelvie’s art has been pretty great–minus a few pages/panels here and there where they felt rushed (in some cases it was inks, in others it was colors). But, on the whole, this series is pretty stellar. I’m sort of worried where this serie is going to go past, say, issue 12, given that longevity doesn’t seem to be a think this pair can do as a team. Nonetheless, I’m in for the long haul.

  • 2000 AD prog 1919
  • Batman #39
  • Batman Eternal #47
  • Daredevil #13
  • Gotham Academy #5
  • Thor Annual #1
  • The Wicked + The Divine #8

That’s a pretty solid list of books for this week.

Batman has been fantastic lately, and ENDGAME is shaping up to be the best of Snyder and Capullo’s run. Batman vs Joker has been done so many times, so seeing a fresh spin on the story is exciting.

As much as I’ve been enjoying Batman, I must say that Gotham Academy is my favorite “Bat” title out there right now. I just love the look and tone of this book; it’s unlike anything else DC is doing right now and it feels like a breath of fresh air.

The end of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s Daredevil run is quickly approaching. I’ve really enjoyed where Waid has taken Matt Murdock and company, and Samnee’s art is always spectacular.

I’ll be honest, I’m only buying the Thor Annual because former WWE wrestler CM Punk is writing one of the stories in it. As far as I know, Punk’s never written any other comics, but since he’s an avowed Marvel fan, I’m sure “The Best in the World” will deliver an entertaining story.

  • Wicked + Divine #8

My list may be short but it certainly gets the job done!

Image knows how to keep the goods coming like a freight train. Wicked + Divine has been nothing but a fun and sweet read for me. Regardless of how much I have on my plate, I do make sure to pick with up when I get it. I thought about switching to collected editions, but I just cannot quit this one as a weekly.

  • Low #6
  • Spider-Gwen #1

Low has been on a mini-break of sorts, the last issue having come out in December. But this strange post-apocalyptic story diverges greatly from the other sci-fi and fantasy comics I’m reading in a way I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before, which is what keeps bringing me back

Like so many others, I fell in love with the Spiderverse’s Spider-Gwen in her one-off issue. And, wow. Maybe “what if”’s really just get me. Maybe alternate dimensions just give me a kick that nothing else quite does.  If anything, the corollaries between the Spider-Gwen universe and the Ultimate or 616 universe we’re just perfect for me.  Because more than the punk band, more than the costume, more than Peter taking the place of Dr. Conners, the one page sum-up of the differences and similarities between Spider-Gwen’s universe and the others blew my mind. And honestly, that is what grabbed me the most. And here I am pulling this book like everyone else. I have no doubts it’ll be awesome.

Attention! And comics for all!
