This Week’s Comics

Diamond got their new releases updated on time this week, so I’m pleased to be on time as well.  Here are this week’s new and noteworthy releases.

  • ADVENTURE TIME #6 – I’ll go into more detail in a day or so, but Adventure Time #5 may have been a perfect comic book.  Like, 11 on a scale of 10 good.  So yeah, I’m coming back for more.
  • DAREDEVIL #15 – Paolo Rivera’s Dr. Doom cover for issue 14 is so good I’ve been afraid to crack it open.  Strange but true, friends!  I’m weird like that.  (I also haven’t read the last 3 issues of Tales Designed to Thrizzle for that reason.)
  • GLORY #28
  • MARS ATTACKS #2 – Issue 1 was decent, even if the variant covers (one reprinting every card in the original Topps set) was pretty exploitative of the reader’s dollar.
  • SAGA #5 – Perhaps I’ve been selling some books a little hard (I’m looking at you, Saucer Country), but Saga is the real deal.  Probably worth waiting for the trade, but absolutely worth buying.  Brian K.Vaughn and Fiona Staples are creating an epic story here worthy of the title.

That’s it for this week.  What looks good to you?

    Fear not! You’ve still got a winning record of recommendations. I picked up Saga #1 a couple of weeks ago. It was impressively strong and weird.
