  • Black Widow #18
  • Divinity #4
  • Inferno #1
  • Invincible #120
  • Iron Fist: The Living Weapon #12
  • Material #1
  • Outcast #9
  • Sex #21
  • They’re Not Like Us #6
  • Uber #25

Inferno – I guess I’m trying out one of these Secret Wars books. Just this one. Just. This. One. I mean, this is a book about Magik (who is awesome) trying to save her brother Colossus (who is equally awesome). And, well, it’s X-Men.

Uber continues to be the series I can’t keep myself from reading. I’m not a big history buff, I’m not into Nazis, I’m not into gore, and yet here I am with this book every month. There’s something special about this one, and I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Ales Kot has me roped in for another book, Material. With Zero coming to a close at #18 (or so I read on Twitter?), I hope this will be a fine replacement.

Iron Fist: The Living Weapon ends this month. I mourn it’s passing.

Black Widow is still the book starring the greatest superspy Marvel has to offer. Straight up.

  • Convergence #8
  • Sandman Overture #5
  • TMNT #46
  • Sons of the Devil #1

TMNT holy crap this series is just getting better and better.

Sons of the Devil is a book I have been waiting for and cannot wait until the short film comes out.

  • Divinity #4
  • Ivar, Timewalker #5
  • The Sandman, Overture #5
  • They’re Not Like Us #6

As Divinity comes to a close, I can’t help but wonder just where Valiant will put this character when it’s done…assuming Matt Kindt doesn’t “off” him in the final issue.  Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if he found his way onto Valiant’s own Justice League: Unity.  Although, you know, he might be too powerful.  That aside, kudos to Kindt and penciler Trevor Hairsine and colorist David Baron for delivering this fantastically emotional sci-fi story.

While Valiant’s Divinity comes to a close, Ivar, Timewalker kicks off its second arc this week, with new artist Francis Portela (Green Lantern Corps).  As much as I enjoyed Clayton Henry’s art on the opening arc, I’m more than willing to give Portela a swing at things…especially with what I can hope is more than a cameo from Ivar’s brother, Aram/Armstrong.

Are we actually going to get the fifth issue of The Sandman: Overture this week?  Are we?  ARE WE?  Or, you know, CAN I ACTUALLY REMEMBER WHAT’S HAPPENED IN PREVIOUS ISSUES?  The answer, I fear, is that I can’t.

I’m an issue behind on They’re Not Like Us, and, like I think I said last time…I wanna know where this book is headed post introductory arc.  I honestly have no idea…which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

  • 2000 AD prog 1932
  • Convergence: Shazam #2
  • Material #1

Another small week for me. Convergence: Shazam is the only Convergence related title I’m interested in, and the first issue was a fun, Silver Age influenced story. This should be equally great, but I’m sad that Jeff Parker and Evan ‘Doc’ Shaner don’t have an ongoing title with these characters.

I recently discovered Ales Kot’s work having read the first trade of Zero and the first two issues of The Surface, so I am very excited to dive into Material. I appreciate any creator who isn’t afraid to explore some deeper philosophical issues in their work, especially if they use the comic book medium to do so.

  • Invincible #120

I saw this a lot about all the comics that I read but, I don’t care that this is my only pull for the week. Invincible is going to be amazing as a giant conflict is nearing its end and it’s going to be absolutely fantastic. A days long fight is wrapping up and the main character is getting thrown into the middle of it after swearing up, down, left, and right that he wouldn’t do any more fighting.

Attention! Wednesdays are the best!
