Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: May 13th, 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: Thor #8

Jason Aaron’s relaunched Thor has been amazing so far, but he sure has been dragging his feet when it comes to revealing the new Thor’s identity. I was sure I knew it, but we’ve gotten so close to confirming my theory without actually doing it that now I’m second – guessing myself and…look, let’s just say that it’ll be a huge relief to me when they finally reveal her identity.

David: Copperhead #7

There’s a classic Western motif that the sheriff dates the schoolteacher. Sheriff Clara Bronson is about to have her big date with the schoolteacher, Thaddues Luken. But date night may be cut short as a gang of outlaws heads to town to break their leader’s brother out of jail. Of course, it wouldn’t be a classic Western without a jailbreak, too. Stupid outlaws, you’re going to ruin Clara’s date and she’s going to make you pay. Dearly, I hope. Month after month, Jay Faerber and Scott Godlewski continue to deliver the goods with Copperhead. Definitely worth checking out.

 Gaumer: Secret Wars #2

After reading last week’s debut issue of Secret Wars  I completely understand why ish #2 of Marvel’s Secret Wars is dropping only 7 days after the first. Ish #1 was nothing but the end of Hickman’s Avengers/New Avengers run, and while I was cool with that, I’m ready to sink my teeth into the meat of this epic story. I know Hickman likes to build things up, but, damn it, man! We’ve sat through 100+ issues of this. Just bring it already!

Adam: Darth Vader #5

This is definitely the best book out of the pretty solid Star Wars lineup coming out of Marvel. Vader’s characterization is perfect, the evil driods are hilarious, and the action has been amazing. Hopefully this issue continues this book’s hot streak and remind us all why we fell in love with this space samurai in the first place.

Jules: Jonathan Hickman

This week I am torn between the outstanding modern Epic that has been East of West I story that I constantly think cannot either get better or surprise me and seems to do every issue. And Secret Wars #2, since issue one has left a haunting tingle in the back of my neck ready and waiting to see where this event takes us next. My dollars and anticipation is all on Hickman this week.
