  • Black Panther: The Crew #1The Crew was one of my favourite comics series during its original run so I’m pleased to see it being revised, even though this version has no relationship to the original, other than the fact that the Black Panther is involved. Still, I’m looking forward to seeing where Ta-Nehisi Coates and his associates decide to take this.
  • Grass Kings #2 – The first issue of this new series by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins was lovely and interesting, but it was mostly setup. I want to see where the mystery that was revealed at the end leads.
  • Immortal Brothers: The Tale of the Green Knight #1 – Fred Van Lente writing a one-shot featuring the Anni-Padda brothers? Sold.
  • Seven to Eternity #5 – Rick Remender’s latest series, with the incredible Jerome Opeña started slowly, but the last two issues were terrific. I’m glad it’s returning from its short hiatus.

  • NANCY DREW AND THE HARDY BOYS: THE BIG LIE #2 – The first issue of this series was a nice surprise.  Wasn’t quite sure what to expect of a noir modernization of The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, but it worked really well.  Really looking forward to seeing where this series goes from here.
  • CAPTAIN AMERICA: SAM WILSON #21 – While I appreciate comics dealing with real social issues, I think CAPTAIN AMERICA can be a little heavy handed at times.  I grew up a New Warriors fan, so Rage’s fate bothered me to no end.  Sent to jail for a crime he did not commit, left in general population and beaten until brain dead.  It makes a sad amount of sense with real life happenings, but not quite what I want to read in a superhero comic book.
  • X-MEN BLUE #1 and WEAPON X #1 – Marvel continues to roll out their X-Men relaunch.  X-MEN GOLD’s debut issue was marred by an artist gone rogue, but I don’t think that will have much of an impact on the long term success or failure of ResurrXion.
  • IMMORTAL BROTHERS: THE TALE OF THE GREEN KNIGHT #1 – I love adventures of Gilead, Aram, and Ivar teamed up together, so I have been looking forward to this one for awhile now.  Hopefully we will get more stories featuring them in the near future.
  • CHARMED #2 and VAMPIRELLA #2 – Probably unfair to lump these two books together, but they are both by Dynamite, both are relaunches of series I really enjoyed…and both have been off to kind of shaky starts. I am hoping that both of these series find their footing quickly.
