  • Imperium #6
  • Nailbiter #14
  • Outcast #10
  • Uber #26
  • Uncanny Season 2 #4
  • The Wicked + The Divine #12
  • Zero #18

Zero is wrapping this month. I’m a little sad, but a little proud of this book for knowing when to stop. Kot and his plethora of artists have created something unlike anything else in comics–as far as I’m concerned. There’s an omnibus (hopefully) coming that has my name on it.

Uncanny Season 2 has been very slow. I think I need to go back and read season 1 to get myself more involved in this book. Last month’s issue was definitely a good one, but I don’t think I’m as invested as I originally was.

Imperium is going to be six issues in and I haven’t cracked a single one yet. I think I’ll do that this week to see if this series is really for me.

  • Bob’s Burgers Ongoing #1
  • Green Arrow #42
  • Imperium #6

I’ve got three books this week, potentially two (depending upon on how I feel about Green Arrow).

Kicking it off is the first issue of Bob’s Burgers from Dynamite Comics.  Yes, this was a book before, but that was a limited series.  It did amazingly well, and so now we’ve got an ongoing book.  While the miniseries attempted to give equal time to all members of the Belcher family with each issue, it’d be nice to see a more focused narrative this time around.  Heck, maybe split each issue between two stories, and make them two-parters if necessary.  Look at me, making suggestions for a book already set to hit store shelves this week, and that I’ll buy regardless.  Nobody ever said I was smart.

I’ve got Green Arrow #41, sporting the new team of Ben Percy and artist Patrick Zircher, sitting on my shelf.  Well, to be exact, sitting in a paper bag on my desk.  You know what I mean.  The plan is to read through that, and cut the book if it doesn’t measure up.  I haven’t read Percy’s recent guest arc on Detective Comics, nor am I a fan of the character art Zircher released for his iteration of Oliver Queen…but we’ll see.

Finally, Valiant’s series Imperium is paying off for those that have stuck it out this far.  Sure, the series hasn’t exactly been a furiously paced title from the get-go, but Harada’s efforts to curate his own fighting force of “less-than-good” doers is wrapping up.  Now it’s a psychological game of cat and mouse between Project Rising Spirit and the Harada Corporation…and it’s got this reader strangely rooting for the underdog members of PRS.  Scott Eaton’s art is a lot easier to put up with here than it was for Detective Comics too…as I felt he wasn’t a good fit for that book.

  • The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #7

This light hearted comic is always a delight to read. Almost every issue has been spot on so far. I always look forward to seeing what sort of hilarious shenanigans and hijinks will happen in the next issue.

  • Action Comics #42
  • An Entity Observes All Things

Looks like a very small week for me. An Entity Observes All Things is the new OGN from Box Brown, who did last year’s excellent Andre The Giant: Life and Legend. I was a big fan of that book, so I’m pretty excited to finally read this new one.

Attention! W-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-ww…..
