Oh, hello there. I didn’t see you come in. It’s another light week, but here are this week’s new and noteworthy titles.
- DAREDEVIL #16
- LOVE AND CAPES WHAT TO EXPECT #1 – For Matt’s creator-owned pull list.
- MUPPETS #2 – The Last Langridge Muppet Story is a bit of a lost classic, and it’s been nice to revisit old friends, even if they haven’t been gone that long.
- THIEF OF THIEVES #7
- TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION ONE #82 – And speaking of revisiting old friends I don’t think Regen One has quite recaptured the vibe of the first run 20 years ago, but I can see the spark. And it IS a good book, it just doesn’t seem like Furman and Wildman have recaptured their groove yet. It’s dumb, but I will mention that one of the best things are the word balloons. Growing up on the old Marvel series, Transformers always spoke with rectangular balloons with those strange flared corners. No other series since has gone that route, and it’s nice to see them back.
I also picked up the 100-Page Spectacular so I could get caught up on issues 76-80 from the original series before picking up #81. I have
about half the issues and had never read the rest, so it was a good refresher for me. I was very pleasantly surprised to see those stories hold up remarkably well, and not “for Transformers comics,” but as stories in their own right.
That’s it for this week. What looks good to you?
