Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: April 16th, 2014

outright-geekery profile-largeNew Comics Wednesday is upon us again, and some of us here at Outright Geekery are running down the top pick on our comic stacks for this week.


Jules: Ultimate FF #1

I’ve gotta say I’m really looking forward to see what Fikalov does with his third of the Ultimate Universe. Coming off the heels of Cataclysm, the Ultimate Universe’s Iron Man, Invisible Woman, Falcon, Machine Man? do what our 616 FF did once: and that is build a foundation for the betterment of the future. I just think its awesome, especially since their S.H.I.E.L.D. is now defunct. The cast is cool, the concept seems solid, I’m looking forward to this one.

Ultimate FF 1

• The Future Foundation is all that stands between us and COMPLETE AND UTTER DOOM.
• Sue Storm, Tony Stark, Machine Man and Sam Wilson face the ONCOMING DESTRUCTION.
• A mysterious new member will join their ranks, whether they like it or not. Hint: They will not.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99


Taylor: Thor: God of Thunder #21 Galactus punches All-Father Thor through the planet and breaks the moon. Nuff said.

Thor GoT 21

Variant Cover by Ron Garney
• ROXXON strikes back!
• Broxton, Oklahoma under siege!
• The Minotaur shakes hands with the king of the trolls!
• And in the far future, King Thor is overwhelmed by the fury of Galactus!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99


Christian: Sinestro #1

As much as I’m looking forward to Batman Eternal #2, that’s probably going to be something I could say every week, and the move DC has made to give Sinestro his own title may just turn yellow light into gold. Surely this book is spinning out of Forever Evil, but I really want to see the direction Cullen Bunn plans on taking the character, and with Dale Eaglesham an art, it’ll be good either way.

Thaal Sinestro has lost everything he’s ever loved: his home, his family, his only friend. But no matter how desperate he becomes, Sinestro will never be without fear…a lesson his one-time ally, one-time enemy Lyssa Drak is eager to teach him! Can he take back the despicable Yellow Lantern Corps? Or does the universe have a new destiny in mind for Sinestro?


Gaumer: Justice League #29

Yes, the Justice League is still a thing at DC Comics. Although it’s been bogged down in the creative quagmire that is Forever Evil, I’ve enjoyed the event overall, and at least some of the tie-ins, but JL has been one of the best. I’m excited to see the ball get rolling again, but I’m not sure if it’s because the event is so good or I just want it to be over already. Either way, this book is at the top of my stack this week.
