Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Given that it’s a fifth week, just a few issues I want to talk about this week, plus a few new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…
New This Week:
Jupiter’s Legacy 2 #1 – So far I’ve been enjoying Jupiter’s Circle more than Legacy but I’m open to this new series.
Darth Vader #22 – As I’ve said before, I’ll miss this series but I’m interested to see what will end up taking its place. The final arc is shaping up to be a nail biter as Aphra has a lot to answer for.
Lobster Johnson: The Metal Monsters of Midtown #2 – I really enjoyed the first issue, in fact I’ve been enjoying a lot of Lobster Johnson lately. If you can still find issue #1 in your shop, it’s a fine jumping-on point for new readers and I highly recommend it.
Plutona #5 – This has been a great series and this should be a great finale. I can’t wait to see what Emi Lenox comes out with next!
Other issues to look forward to – Captain America: Steve Rogers #2, Dark Knight III: The Master Race #5, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: A Spoon Too Short #5, East of West #27, Spider-Gwen Annual #1, The Spirit #12, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #9
Jughead Vol. 1 TPB – Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson have been doing making some great comics with this run. It’s a perfect pairing to Mark Waid and Fiona Staples/Veronica Fish’s Archie.
Dead Letters Vol. 3 The Devil’s Chorus TPB – The third arc of the series, this is the first printing of the story. The first two arcs were printed in single issues before being cancelled.
Swamp Thing: Trial By Fire TPB
Jupiter’ Circle Vol. 2 TPB – Mark Millar has been building a great world in these Jupiter series. Personally, I prefer Circle over Legacy (also out this week) though I’m looking forward to the latter.
