Here’s my Comic Book Haul for this Friday featuring Wednesday’s Comic Releases.
Now, I actually for a change managed to get these comics on the Wednesday and I think this might be the start of a regular trend, but we’ll see how things go. It’s also an impressive haul this week with 7 issues, almost double my intended amount of 4 that I was going to pick up, with 3 Marvel Books and 3 DC, with the first issue of Dark Horse’s new Star Wars series that I picked up as well in print despite reading the first issue digitally (and loving it). So, without further ado, let’s get the show on the road with a picture for a change:
Age of Ultron #8
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis | Art: Brandon Peterson | Colours: Paul Mounts | Cover: Brandon Peterson, 7th Orange, Rock-He Kim | Publisher: Marvel Comics
• With the Marvel Universe turned inside out, who will take responsibility for breaking the world? And is there any way to put it back?
• Wait until you see who is in charge of the new world order and how they got there…!
• A reality-spanning choice is made this issue that will affect the Marvel Universe for years and years to come.
Writers: J.H. Williams III & W. Haden Blackman | Art: Trevor McCarthy & Sandu Florea | Colours: Guy Major | Letters: Todd Klein | Cover: J.H. Williams III | Publisher: DC Comics
Batwoman is being played right into a confrontation with Batman…and that’s the least of her problems after the final page of issue #20
Writer: Jeph Leob | Art: Ed McGuinness & Dexter Vines | Colours: Marte Garcia | Letters: Albert Deschense | Cover: Ed McGuinness, Dexter Vines, Marte Gracia, & Stephen Platt | Publisher: Marvel Comics
• The comic everyone is talking about continues!
• The mysteries surrounding the disappearance of Sam’s dad deepen and the helmet leads Nova into intergalactic conflict that will affect the entire Marvel Universe!
Writer: Kyle Higgins | Art: Brett Booth & Norm Rapmund | Cover: Brett Booth & Norm Rapmund | Publisher: DC Comics
After witnessing so much death in the past few months, how will Nightwing react when he learns a key figure in his life has returned from the grave?
Star Wars #1
Writer: Brian Wood | Art: Carlos D’Anda | Cover: Alex Ross | Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! We’re taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!
Writer: Michael Alan Nelson | Art: Mahmud Asrar | Cover: Emanuela Lupacchino | Publisher: DC Comics
Supergirl is dead—Long live Supergirl! Or so it seems as the strange connection between the Karas has Power Girl becoming Supergirl again.
Wolverine and the X-Men #29
Writer: Jason Aaron | Art: Ramon Perez | Colours: Laura Martin | Cover: Ramon Perez | Publisher: Marvel Comics
• See the Jean Grey School of the future!
• The students of JGS put a time-capsule together that you can follow into the future and see what happened to all your favorite X-Men.
So yeah – I’ve already had the chance to read all of these issues and I can safely say that my pick of the week is Wolverine and the X-Men #29. Not quite a time-travel story and manages to be fun, awesome and this is a series that I’ll be certainly adding to my pullist, along with Supergirl, as #20 was really strong and another contender for Pick of the Week.
