Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: May 20th, 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: A-Force #1 and Star Wars #5

This week is a chance for me to see two of my favorite writers on some alternative books, with Jason Aaron continuing his run on Star Wars and G. Willow Wilson branching out to an entirely new project, A-Force. Star Wars promises to be good fun with Boba Fett and an interesting new bounty hunter running amuck, while A-Force should give us a much-needed opportunity to see some of Marvel’s premiere heroines kick some righteous ass. Looking forward to it!

David: Oddly Normal #7

With some help from Auntie, Oddly continues her journey into her mother’s memories. The experience gives Oddly a better understanding of her mother’s love. Otis Frampton continues to craft a delightful coming of age story month after month, it’s far from the standard superhero fare today. However, I’m ready for the real work to be done and see Oddly get her parents back.

Adam: Ultimate End #1

Honestly, I never really got into the Ultimate universe. I liked the stuff that I did read for the most part, but it always flew under my radar. Well, not today. The ultimate universe is ending and its godfathers are here to tell is about its final hours. If nothing else, we should get some good Miles Morales moments out of this.

Jules: A-Force #1

Of all the the Secret Wars tie ins this is one of the ones I’m really looking forward too! Jim Cheung’s art is always wort my dollars. I’m also mega stoked on the words of Margurite Bennett and G. Willow Wilson to keep this title total fun and kick ass. From the cover I already one of my all time favorites is part of the team…She Hulk is a good guess because she is one of my faves, but Dazzler ladies and gentleman is hands down one of my all time favorite characters. Stoked to see this team and read this title!
