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: Ms Marvel #12 and She-Hulk #12

This week’s Ms Marvel showcases a meeting of two characters that are special to me: my favorite new character, Kamala, and my favorite reinvented new character from a couple years ago, Loki. G Willow Wilson has been doing great work with all the characters I’ve seen her tackle recently, and I’m excited to see her take on the God of Mischief on Wednesday.Ms Mavel #12MS MARVEL #12

She-Hulk #12

It always sucks to see a good series go before it’s time, and make no mistake, Charles Soule’s She-Hulk has been the best thing no one was reading. I’ll be checking back in one last time with issue #12 and curse the Fates for not letting us have any more.She-Hulk #12SHE-HULK #12

David: Secret Identities #1

A new series from Image Comics, by the team of Jay Faerber, Brian Joines amd Ilias Kyriazis. Jay Faerber is no stranger to writing superhero team books, from DC’s Teen Titans, Marvel’s Generation X and his own Image title, Dynamo 5. The series looks like it’s off to a promising start. Can’t wait until Wednesday to get my hands on this one. Secret Identities #1SECRET IDENTITIES #1

She-Hulk #12

This is the final issue for the latest volume of She-Hulk. This series has been a fun read since the first issue. Anything and everything goes: from legal wrangling with Stark Industries, defending against the deportation of Doctor Doom’s son, representing an aging Steve Rogers’ in a wrongful death lawsuit opposite Matt Murdoch and the mysterious Blue File. The team of Charles Soule and Javier Pulido have delivered some of the best reading material over the last 12 months. Shame that this series is being canceled.She-Hulk #12SHE-HULK #12

Gaumer: Secret Identities #1 and She-Hulk #12

Another week; another new book from Image Comics. But this one is especially exciting because it sees writer Jay Faerber return to a creator-owned superhero book. His run on Dynamo 5 was amazing, and I’m looking for the same sort of awesome from this title. I’ll be reading it first thing Wednesday afternoon!Secret Identities #1SECRET IDENTITIES #1

She-Hulk #12

As individual character runs go, Charles Soule and Javier Pulido on this volume of She-Hulk will quite possibly go down as THE quintessential take on the character. I honestly have no idea why this book is going away, and I don’t really care. There’s just no excuse for putting the brakes on this series. It is definitely ending before it’s time.She-Hulk #12SHE-HULK #12

Adam: Iron Fist: Living Weapon #9

This series has been knocking it out of the park since issue 1 and has been on the top of my pull list every week it comes out. The art is amazing, it is filled with some great action, and has a wickedly entertaining story. What more could you want?Iron Fist The Living Weapon #9IRON FIST LIVING WEAPON #9
