Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. I’ve also included a list of Trade Paperbacks and Hard Cover Editions if you’re looking for some extra stories this week. Only a few other things to mention, so without further ado, let’s dive in…
New This Week
Pretty Deadly #6 – Finally, the return of Kelly Sue DeConnick & Emma Rios’ smash hit series! This was one of my favorite series as it was coming out, so I’m very excited it’s back. This should be a fine jump-on point for new readers, but you really should read voulme 1, available now!
Ms. Marvel #1 – Kamala Khan begins her career as an Avenger!
Batman: Europa #1 – Brian Azzarello and Jim Lee? Yes please! This week’s issue starts a run of rotating artists focusing on Batman’s mission to find the cure for a deadly virus in Europe. This might be a throwback to previous caped-crusader international stories, like Batman in Barcelona and stories that led to Batman Inc. Pre-New52.
Huck #1 – Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque?! YES PLEASE!
Secret Wars Too #1 – After a (very) long universe-spanning event, it’s nice to take a moment to breathe and laugh, brought to you by a team of some of today’s best writers and artists!
Shutter #17 – This is one of those series that gets better with every issue. Not just for the final-page plot twists or the action or the hilarious back-up comics, but the story overall and the presentation form the creative team.
Other issues I’m looking forward to:
Batman and Robin Eternal #7, Cognetic #2, I Hate Fairyland #2, Jughead #2, Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #4, Rat Queens #13, Star Trek / Green Lantern #5, Star Wars: Vader Down #1, and those DC Looney Tunes Variants!
