BOOK OF THE WEEK
|W: Zachary Kaplan A: Giovanni Timpano|
This has been one of my favorite books that have come out recently. In a post-apocalyptical world where the sun will burn and kill you, there is a killer that does not burn and is using the sun as his weapon. This is a book that does not telegraph any of the twists and turns and is a great read. I can't wait to learn more about the characters and this world.
|W: Tom King A: Miel Janin|
Anything with Bane will have me reading a book. I think that Bane has been so misused since pretty much Knightfall. King looks like he may be using Bane's brain as well as his strength, which is what makes Bane so great and brings out the best in the Dark Knight. The start of this arc was great and looks to have a lot of potential. With what King did on Vision this may be the start of a great Batman arc.
|W: Dan Abnett A: Brad Walker|
This has been the only Aquaman run that has kept my interest this long. It will be interesting if Abnett can keep it going or will fall back into Aquaman that people make fun of. There are a lot of avenues to take with Aquaman since he is basically the only Monarch is the DC world and can pretty much do anything he wants. This aspect never seems to be pursued aside from an evil brother or king of guard trying to overthrow him and take power for themselves. He is also always the outcast in the Justice League and there are a lot of avenues to explore there, trust, teamwork, and being an outcast, which they have touched on. Hopefully Abnett has some more good stories in him.
|W: Robert Kirkman A: Charlie Adlard|
I mean if you aren't reading The Walking Dead, I don't know what else to say. The Whisper War has been good so far and I love the use of Negan. There are a multitude of ways that this could end and I can't wait to see where it goes. Sometimes I almost feel like there should be a spin off with Negan and his establishing a new saviors group. However, if Kirkman was to do that, I think he would do it in The Walking Dead fashion where he kills Rick off and takes the group over. I don't see that happening, but with Kirkman anything is possible. That is the joy of this book.
|W:Jeff Lemire A: Charles Soule|
This event makes me a little sad because it basically got rid of the X-Men in the current timeline. However, with the new announcements of all the X books coming back. I can't wait to see how where this goes and how it turns out. They are bringing back Blue and Gold teams so this has to lead somewhere good.
Think I missed something or that I suck. Let me know if the comments.
