Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: November 12th, 2014

outright-geekery Logo NewNew 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. What are you looking forward to reading this week?


Taylor: Thor #2

After establishing some dire stakes in the last issue, it’s time for our new Thunder God to take Mjolnir for a test drive as we see our new heroine in action for the first time. Will this be the issue where we learn her identity? By Odin’s beard, I hope so, because the suspense is killing me!

David: Copperhead #3

This week has some new number 1 issues dropping, but I wanted to share this little gem with you. Copperhead reminds me of the cartoon series, Bravestarr. That was something that caught my attention about the book, there are a lot of interesting parallels between the two. Makes me wonder if Faerber might be a fan of the Bravestarr, too. The story so far revolves around Clara investigating a family murder her first day on the job, while dealing with her son, a deputy with a bad attitude and a mysterious artificial human. Space Westerns, what’s not to love?

Copperhead03_CoverSheriff Clara Bronson’s plan to catch a murderer takes her deep inside the copper mine.


Gaumer: Batman #36

This week’s issue of Batman not only marks three years of New 52 Bats, but also the full return of the last page reveal of ish #35…we think. Either way, that ish #35 was awesome, and I’m hoping this week’s installment is just as good. It’ on the top of my stack this week.

Adam: All-New Captain America #1

Jules: Superior Iron Man #1

Tom Taylor has stepped into the driver seat with Marvel’s eccentric billionaire at just the right time. Tony Stark now far from the Iron Avenger we’ve all come to love in a new city changing it. Having now been inverted by the Red Onslaught I’m beyond curious as to what sort of Iron adventures are ahead. San Fran bound Iron man looks like some serious clashes ahead for shell head as his life against the Avengers beings in Marvel NOW! As a long time Iron Man fan I really look forward to seeing what Tom Taylor drops from this title, having really enjoyed his Earth 2 and Injustice series. I’m hoping for great things from the young writer. I’m also stoked to check out Yildiray Cinar art, some of the preview stuff looks spectacular.
