  • Black Canary #2
  • Dead Drop #3
  • Hawkeye #22
  • Invincible #121
  • Martian Manhunter #2
  • Moon Knight #17
  • Roche Limit: Clandestiny #3
  • Silver Surfer #13
  • Trees #11

Silver Surfer is still one of my favorite books to read. It’s galaxy hopping fun and a plain ol’ good, all-ages book. I implore you to read this book.

Hawkeye. Finally. Yeesh.

Dead Drop is a series I’m still figuring out. Did it really need to be a Valiant book? Or, better yet, how will this mini-series tie into the greater Valiant universe, if at all? I’m fine with standalone stories, I just can’t see why it needed to be a Valiant book. There’s nothing tying it down to this universe.

  • Black Canary #2
  • Hawkeye #22
  • Justice League #42
  • Martian Manhunter #2

Look, I won’t believe the last issue of Hawkeye is actually coming out this week until I’m holding it in my hands.

The first issues of Martian Manhunter and Black Canary offered interesting twists on their namesakes. It seems like the new, creator-focused approach at DC is going to work well, especially for secondary characters like these two.

As an avowed fan of Jack Kirby’s New Gods characters, I really enjoyed the first part of the big ‘Darkseid War’ story in last month’s Justice League. Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok have a knack for doing big superhero comics like this, so this feels like an important, and more importantly, entertaining story.

  • Book of Death #1
  • Dr. Fate #2
  • Simpsons Comics #222

Valiant’s big “Event of the Summer” opens this Wednesday with the first issue of Book of Death.  For those that have “kept up” with the events of the Valiant-verse, this builds on the repercussions of The Valiant.  For those who forgot *SPOILERS FROM THE VALIANT* the work ended with a Geomancer from the future being brought to the present, carrying the knowledge of what was to come, a “Book of Death,” if you will.  Can’t wait for this!

I know, I know, it’s not the best idea, but I’m gonna get Dr. Fate #2 without actually having read the first issue.  Not the smartest thinking, kids.  Gotta read those #1s, lest you end up with four or five issues of a series you’ve suddenly decided you actually don’t like.

In issue #222 of Simpsons Comics, Homer becomes a mentor to Ralph Wiggum, who is easily one of my favorite characters.  That can’t go wrong, can it?

  • Invincible #121
  • Trees #11

The new arc of Trees brings up a new plot to follow and more intrigue than you could shake a presidential campaign at. This title has yet to let me down in any way, shape, or form.

And then onto my mainstay, Invincible. After spinning the series on its head, Kirkman assured us that it wasn’t going to be entirely different by throwing in some fighty violence for us. Which is good, because I don’t think the series would hold the same charm with me if there weren’t an epic fistfight every 10-12 issues.

Attention! READ ME, SEYMOUR!
