The ticking of the clock was unbearable. An uncomfortable aroma of sweating leather seems to be sitting on my head. An old man coughs in the corner and I see a teller murder him with her eyes. He quickly tries to swallow his cough, which only successfully exacerbates the situation. A new click enters the rhythm, followed by wide eyes and quick yelps.
“EVERYBODY GET DOWN”
Avengers #675 (Marvel)
Mark Waid/Al Ewing/Jim Zub (W) Pepe Larraz (A)
I really don’t know how I feel about this whole thing. It’s some really great creators, it seems to be the final adventure for a few of the Avengers series, but I really hate the weekly thing. Keep an eye on this one.
Wonder Woman #38 (DC)
James Robinson (W) Emanuela Lupacchino (A)
Man, that last arc was kinda lame up until the last issue. Hopefully this next arc redeems that whole messa stuff.
Old Man Logan #33 (Marvel)
Ed Brisson (W) Mike Deodato (A)
That last issue was pretty damn intense. I’m not gonna lie, I had some feelings. That being said, I’m kinda interested in the next arc already. I’m impatient, I know.
She-Hulk #161 (Marvel)
Mariko Tamaki (W) Jahnoy Lindsay (A)
I am really sad that this series is coming to an end. I mean, I need to stop reading some series, but I never asked for this.
Ms.Marvel #26 (Marvel)
G. Willow Wilson (W) Nico Leon (A)
Old villians? I think? This seems a lot like the parakeet dude from the first series, so I could be wrong, but I think he’s back, I don’t know, maybe, or something, or you know, whatever.
Detective Comics #972 (DC)
James Tynion IV (W) Miguel Mendonca/Diana Egea (A)
Okay, I was wrong about this arc. There I said it.
The Punisher #220 (Marvel)
Matthew Rosenberg (W) Guiu Vilanova (A)
This series is everything that I wanted it to be and more. If you aren’t reading this, you are missing out on very good things.
Runaways #5 (Marvel)
Rainbow Rowell (W) Kris Anka (A)
Yeah, so talking about good things. I fucked up good when I missed a couple issues of this. It’s such a good series.
Daredevil #597 (Marvel)
Charles Soule (W) Stefano Landini (A)
Well, I didn’t expect this to happen. I think this series just got 150% better, which is impressive seeing as it was already amazing. Kudos for being a good creative team or something. What do you want a cookie?
Paradiso #2 (Image)
Ram V. (W) Dearbhla Kelly (A)
The first issue of this comic was really impressive. It’s a strange concept, but you guys know how I feel about strange concepts.
The Archies #4 (Archie Comics)
Alex Segura/Matthew Rosenberg (W) Joe Eisma (A)
This series continues to be the beacon of light in my pull list. It’s so fucking wholesome and punk and lovely and great. Take my word for it, or don’t and be a dummy.
Royal City #9 (Image)
Jeff Lemire (W/A)
Why aren’t you already reading this?
Mister Miracle #6 (DC)
Tom King (W) Mitch Gerads (A)
I feel like some intense revelations are about to be had in this comic. This is the halfway mark and after the last issue, things aren’t going to go well, I don’t think. Who knows, this series could become the feel good comic of the year, surprising everyone.
It slipped out of my mouth before I could even censor it. Immediately my hands moved to push the words back in my head. As I process my thoughts, a masked man slides in front of me, a shotgun causally pointed at my brain.
“Who the fuck are y…”
I head butted him. Yeah, I know, I never knew I was a badass. In fact, it’s almost like someone else took over my head. I wonder if that’s something I should look into. Meanwhile I have to deal with this unconscious thug at my feet.
