I’m trying to keep a stoic presentation in light of this week’s biggest release. Here are this week’s new and noteworthy titles.
- BEFORE WATCHMEN MINUTEMEN #1 (OF 6) – Well, this abomination is finally here. Way to cede your respectability, DC. I hope by the end it was worth it, with your toasters and your cash-in prequels.
- DARK AVENGERS #175 – Despite being fairly underwhelmed with the past dozen issues or so of Thunderbolts, it wrapped up well with the Thunderbolts vs thunderbolts arc. Jeff Parker’s a great talent, but Dark Avengers is really going to have to wow me in order for it to stay on my pull list.
- EPIC KILL #2 – I reviewed issue 1 and really disliked this generic title. Avoid at all costs.
- HULK #53 – I’ve now filled in all the holes on Jeff Parker’s Hulk run and am finally starting to get caught up. I planned on staying on through the Mayan arc, but after Hulk of Arabia, I think I’m going to get caught up through the last issue I picked up and be done. It’s just not taking me anywhere interesting.
- SECRET #2
- SPAWN #220 – Sometimes you just have to give in to your geekier side, even if you know you shouldn’t. DON’T YOU JUDGE ME!
- THIEF OF THIEVES #5
That’s it for this week. What looks good to you?
