“I feel like I’m chasing fucking ghosts!” Dee yelled into the living room. Her cat responded with a timid cry before walking into the room. Dee watched the corners of the room carefully. She was sure she was missing some major input that could change her perception of reality. The cat’s eyes met hers with a pleading visage. Jingles just wanted something warm to lay on.
Avengers #686 (Marvel)
Mark Waid/Jim Zub/Al Ewing (W) Paco Medina (A)
This series is making the Hulk interesting again. I am behind this movement 100%.
The Beef #2 (of 5) (Image)
Richard Starkings/Tyler Shainline (W) Shaky Kane (A)
I am really not sure how I feel about this book. The first one was odd, and not necessarily in a good way. Kane’s art is spot on though, so that’s good.
Champions #18 (Marvel)
Mark Waid (W) Humberto Ramos (A)
Waid’s last day on the book and honestly, I’m probably done after this. It just isn’t my favorite cast of characters, and I have to drop something, so it might as well be this.
Black Panther #171 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Leonard Kirk (A)
Only two more issues of this series…and then….another series with the same writer. Yaaaay.
Invincible Iron Man #598 (Marvel)
Brian Michael Bendis (W) Stefano Caselli/Alex Maleev (A)
Another series coming to a close! It’s almost like there’s a reason all of Bendis’ series are ending.
The Silencer #3 (DC)
Dan Abnett (W) John Romita Jr. (A)
This series is fun. Like ninties nonsense style fun and that’s refreshing.
Old Man Logan #37 (Marvel)
Ed Brisson (W) Dalibor Talajic (A)
I really love the change in pace for this arc already. I’m really interested in the whole Wilson Fisk for mayor thing that’s going on, this gives me my fix. I was going to make a Fisk pun, but I won’t.
Legion #3 (Marvel)
Peter Milligan (W) Wilfredo Torres (A)
So far this has been a fun and trippy journey, but I’m totally glad it’s just a mini. Not gonna lie.
Wonder Woman #43 (DC)
James Robinson (W) Marco Santucci (A)
This series is shaping up to be really good. I feel like each issue is getting a little better. Maybe they just needed to hit their stride.
Detective Comics #977 (DC)
James Tynion IV (W) Javier Fernandez (A)
Man, I am super dissappointed in everyone. Why do you have to be evil and stuff guys?
Moon Knight #193 (Marvel)
Max Bemis (W) Jacen Burrows (A)
I have run into a group of people who don’t like this series in the past week. They are wrong. Opinions can, in fact, be invalid.
Days of Hate #3 (of 12) (Image)
Ales Kot (W) Danijel Zezelj (A)
I think the most crushing thing about this comic is how unremarkable the oppression in the series is. I think this has a sinking impact that is massively important.
Jimmy’s Bastards #7 (AfterShock)
Garth Ennis (W) Russell Braun (A)
Still not confident this one is actually coming out. That’s the rub with smaller presses. Damn them for not having the same business infrastructure a massive company like Disney has. Totally their fault.
X-O Manowar #13 (Valiant)
Matt Kindt (W) Ryan Bodenheim (A)
That last issue was fucking great and gave me one of my favorite moments from this whole series. Definitely digging the new artist.
Daredevil #600 (Marvel)
Charles Soule/Christos N. Gage (W) Ron Garney/Mike Perkins (A)
I’m hyped for this issue for very surface values. It’s a big anniversary issue and I can only imagine something big is going to happen to match the significance of the issue number.
Void Trip #5 (of 5) (Image)
Ryan O’Sullivan (W) Plaid Klaus (A)
This series was crazy fun with a goofy fucking heart of gold in the center. If you aren’t already listening to my advice and reading this (if not shame on you), then you should pick it up when it gets collected in a couple months.
Redneck #11 (Image)
Donny Cates (W) Lisandro Estherren (A)
Shit is gonna go down. Lots of blood. Maybe a vampire or two. Who knows? You, you would know if you were reading this book. That’s the proper answer.
The Terrifics #2 (DC)
Jeff Lemire (W) Ivan Reis (A)
I know everyone already knew this, but this is an amazingly well calculated and lovingly crafted Fantastic Four analog. I thought it would be a little more disguised, but it isn’t and that’s awesome.
Jessica Jones #18 (Marvel)
Brian Michael Bendis (W) Michael Gaydos (A)
THE LAST ISSUE WITH THIS TEAM! WHAT! Okay, I have a feeling it won’t be the last EVER, but soon there will be a new team on the title. That concerns me, but they haven’t announced who it is yet, so we still have time to stress out about probably nothing.
The Highest House #2 (IDW)
Mike Carey (W) Peter Gross (A)
HUUUGE miscalculation that I didn’t have this on my pull last month. I saw it in person and couldn’t help myself. It’s amazing. Read it. Also it’s a magazine sized comic, so you know, make room for a new long box.
Manifest Destiny #34 (Image)
Chris Dingess (W) Matthew Roberts (A)
I fucking love this book. I can’t say it enough. Please read it. It’s gorgeous, fun, and intense.
Dark Nights: Metal #6 (DC)
Scott Snyder (W) Greg Capullo (A)
Holy shit it’s here. The end of all things! Well, the end of this event, and you know, everything changes from what they say, so be ready as fuck. METAL!
Doomsday Clock #4 (of 12) (DC)
Geoff Johns (W) Gary Frank (A)
Another crazy intense event from DC. Keep it up guys, just try to dodge the expletive riddled spells Alan Moore is trying to cast on you right now.
Saga #50 (Image)
Brian K. Vaughan (W) Fiona Staples (A)
Come on. You know how this goes.
Jingles watched as her roommate tore the drawers out of the cabinets looking for some invisible assailant. He watched passively as the refrigerator inched itself over with seemingly no assistance. Dee’s glare shot over to the refrigerator just as it stopped.
