Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: April 8th, 2015

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: Darth Vader #4

Gillen and Larroca’s Darth Vader has been, pound for pound, the best of the highly hyped Star Wars books that Marvel has been publishing. After assembling a crew consisting of a morally dubious space-faring Indiana Jones and evil versions of C-3PO and R2D2 (you read that correctly), I’m terribly excited to see where the Sith Lord’s dark designs take him next.

• Revenge of the Battle Droids???
•  Vader returns to Geonosis to build his army!
•  The Dark Lord’s ascension continues!

David: Rat Queens #10

What can I say, I love me some Rat Queens. The last issue left off on such a cliffhanger that left me wanting more. Sejic’s a favorite artist among the OG’s. His art is always top-notch and his Rats Queens is some of his best work. The Rat Queens and friends are going to save Sawyer and Palisade from certain doom. Can’t wait for Wednesday.

(Writer) Kurtis J. Wiebe (Artist/Cover) Stjepan Sejic
Palisade is shattered and recovering from the grand battle against the Spawn of N’Rygoth while the Rat Queens try to pick up the pieces of their fractured bond. Hey, we never promised it would all be candy and drugs.

Gaumer: Rebels #1

It’s certainly no shock that I’m a huge comic book geek, but you may not know that I’m also a passing History nerd. So, this new series from writer Brian Wood and artist Andrea Mutti about the American Revolution is the perfect blend cool meets awesome; “you got peanut butter in my chocolate,” et. al.  Brian Wood is no novice when it comes to writing about history, and if Rebels is half as good as his Viking-Age series Northlanders was, this is going to be a great series. I can’t wait to find out first thing Wednesday.

(Writer) Brian Wood (Artist) Andrea Mutti (Cover) Tula Lotay
In a rush of great public resistance to an oppressive and excessive government, a homegrown militia movement is formed in rural America. This is not 2015, but 1775. With the war for independence playing out across the colonies, young Seth and Mercy Abbott find their new marriage tested at every turn, as the demands of the frontlines and the home front collide.

Adam: Deadpool #45

I know. Deadpool is way overexposed, on the annoying side, and pretty much universally dispised by the OG crew, but his book since the Marvel Now relaunch has been a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s been a well plotted story with a shocking amount of emotional depth so I’m interested to see how it all ends. I just wish it didn’t cost so much.

DEADPOOL #45 (250th ISSUE)
(Writer) Various (Artist) Various, Mirko Colak (Cover) Scott Koblish
That’s right-if you add together all the Deadpool series (creatively) issue 45 is the big 250th issue of Deadpool! What better way to celebrate than to end the series? In our over-sized main story, ULTIMATUM comes at Deadpool for revenge, so he has no choice but to take them on-ALL OF THEM. Then, in an Infinity Gauntlet crossover, what would Deadpool do if he got the six gems from Thanos? Plus: a slew of stories showcasing Deadpool’s closest friends and allies by special guest writers! Also, SPOILER: Deadpool dies at the end of the issue.

Jules: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #12

Say what you will about the Ultimate Universe, its had its ups and downs. But Ultimate Spider-Man in any form has been worth the read. Its a journey I started on my 10th birthday and has been a very near and dear title to me over the years. I have loved this title since the beginning. I’m sad to hear its coming to an end or at least in this current inception. Every issue has been a fun ride of the Spider-Man I’ve come to identify the most with. I can’t wait to read to see what comes next. If the Ultimate Universe ends, let my Ultimate Spider-Man keep web swinging.
