What happens after a few very small weeks? A giant one! There’s a lot of interesting stuff coming this week.

  • Protector #1 – I don’t know much about this book, except that one of the writers is Simon Roy, who has done amazing work on Prophet and Island, among others, and one of the artists is Artyom Trakhanov, whose work I love. This is my most anticipated new comic of 2020, and I can’t wait.
  • I’m also looking forward to getting new issues of Black Stars Above, Captain America, Criminal, Fallen Angels, Farmhand, Ginseng Roots, Immortal Hulk, Invisible Kingdom, New Mutants, Outcast, Sex Criminals (finally!), Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated, Star Wars, Thor, X-Force, and X-Men.

  • Star Trek Picard Countdown #3 – I know this is a little bit outside of what we usually do each week, but I did want to mention that I loved the debut of Picard on CBS All Access last week. I usually will not pay for a subscription for most digital services, but my wife is a huge Star Trek fan, and Picard is her favorite character so we decided to give it a shot. IDW does terrific work on it’s Star Trek book, and they have announced we are getting even more of them this year. If you like Picard or just wanna check back in with old friends from Star Trek, this mini is worth checking out.
  • Avengers Of The Wastelands #1 – The world of Old Man Logan really interests me, so I glad we are getting a follow up series here. It might just be a throw away series, but I still plan on reading it.
  • Captain Marvel: The End, Deadpool: The End, Doctor Strange: The End – I am a sucker for Marvel’s The End books. Three of them in one week at $5 a pop is a little steep though. Not sure why they didn’t spread these out a lot better. But they are pretty much always a good read (though I have to say I hated Venom: The End from a few weeks ago).
  • Avengers #30 – I don’t know (or care to know) all that much about Starbrand, so the current arc has been dragging a bit for me. It doesn’t help that some of the big things in this book just can’t stick (Thor is a Brood?), so it just felts like shock for the sake of shock at times. That said, they hit the reader with one hell of a cliffhanger last issue. Huge props to grabbing my attention!
  • Usagi Yojimbo Color Classics #1 – I didn’t read too much of Usagi before the current series, but it’s quickly become one of the favorite books. Glad to see we will be getting some reprints of classic stories.
