Taylor: Secret Wars #1
After a VERY drawn out build up, it is finally time to start the show. If this was only a chance to gawk at Esad Ribic’s artwork, that would already be enough reason for me to be excited, but I’m also stoked to see Hickman’s next big chapter to his epic Avengers run. After waiting for so long, how could I pick anything else?
Publisher: MARVEL COMICS
• THE MARVEL UNIVERSE IS COLLIDING WITH THE ULTIMATE
• AND NEITHER WILL SURVIVE!
David: Kanan Last Padawan #2
The last issue ended on a cliffhanger that I have to see what happens in issue #2. How does Caleb Dume survive Order 66? Writer Greg Weisman has made this series feel like it belongs as part of the Star Wars Rebels universe. Kanan Last Padawan will tide me over until season 2 of Rebels drops in June.
Kanan Last Padawan #2 Publisher: MARVEL COMICS (Writer) Greg Weisman (Art) Pepe Larraz (Cover) Mark Brooks His master betrayed and killed, young Caleb Dume is alone. When being a Jedi makes him a target, what can a Padawan do? Continuing the story of the birth of Star Wars Rebels’ Kanan Jarrus
Gaumer: Descender #3
Besides the VERY popular Secret Wars #1 and a couple of other books, there’s really not much on my pull-list this week. One book that’s on that list, however, is Descender #3. Jeff Lemire is doing a great job of making the lead character endearing, and although I wish there was a bit more world-building going on, this has turned into a wonderful, must-read series in only a couple of issues.
Adam: Ant-Man #5
Nick Spencer is just knocking this book out of the park! He is bringing the same lovable loser vibe to this title that he brought to Superior Foes and it really works well. I’m really hoping this iteration of the character lasts after Secret Wars because it is just a blast to read.
• Nothing will be the same again! Except you’re still aging. That’s not going anywhere.
Jules: Dead Drop #1
Well since Secret Wars is taken, Dead Drop #1 As a fan of Alex Kot’s recent work and a minor fan of the current Valiant Universe I can say I’m def gonna pick Dead Drop #1 a shot, the preview looks cool, I really like Adam Gorham’s art, if anything the issue will be spectacular to look at. But know Kot its gonna have a story to grip me and keep me on through the rest of the mini series.
are released to stop the disaster before it occurs.Otherwise, in less than thirty minutes, there will be no world to come back to.X-O Manowar, Archer, Neville Alcott, Detective Cejudo and Betamax are ready to save the world.
Those are our picks, what’s on the top of your stack this Wednesday?
