There are some fun books coming out this week! Here’s what I think is noteworthy for this week’s outing to the comic shop.
- 27 (TWENTY SEVEN) #3 (OF 4) – The second issue explained some fishy things about the number 9, and according to the next-issue blurb this is where the famous musicians dying at 27 connection kicks in. Also — and I can’t say this enough — the Golden Age size is awesome.
- ACTS OF VENGEANCE and ATLANTIS ATTACKS OMNIBUS HC – I’m more interested in Acts of Vengeance than Atlantis Attacks*, but I think it’s really cool that Marvel is collecting these. I hope they’ll do TPB’s, too, as I’m more inclined to pick those up than $100 hardcovers, lovely as they may be.
- ATOMIC ROBO DEADLY ART OF SCIENCE #3 (OF 5) – Buy this book. For reals. Jeff Clevinger and Scott Wegener are creating something really special here.
- DC COMICS PRESENTS GREEN LANTERN FEAR ITSELF and WONDER WOMAN #1 – Not a single DC Presents collection has passed the flip test. Though I still admire their attempt, for the most part they’ve just been early-to-mid 90’s reprints that are easy enough to find anywhere. Keep trying, DC.
- KNIGHT & SQUIRE #5 (OF 6) – Two months without this book and I miss it so much!
- NEW AVENGERS #9 – Of all the books I’m adding to my pull list, Avengers titles are the easiest to find on the cheap. I already have 1-5, most found in 50-cent boxes.
- SUPERMAN #708 – Chris Sims’ review, combined with Matt’s has convinced me to check in on how Chris Roberson aims to make sense of the JMS disaster.
- TRANSFORMERS ONGOING #1 100 PENNY PRESS ED – Yes, I will try a Transformers ongoing for a buck.
- WOLVERINE #1000 – Marvel, just stop. It’s not clever, it’s just a disingenuous cash grab. It used to be that you would alternate between new #1 issues and picking up the traditional numbering every couple years, but now you’re doing it every couple months. Knock it off and make up your mind.
*AoV being a crossover in regular monthly issues where the world’s supervillains traded heroic opponents, and AA being a line-wide story through Marvel’s annuals that nobody cared about because it involved
