Taylor: Black Widow #18
Consistently a good read month after month, this issue sees us picking up with Natasha after her globetrotting teleportation fight against Chaos’ Prophet. The excuse to type sentences like that is one of the many things I love about comics in general, and I’m excited to see where things go next.
• Will Natasha be able to bring down the unassailable Prophet?
David: Old Man Logan #1
When it comes to big events with a lot of tie-ins, I try to steer clear of as many tie-ins as much as I possibly can. That being said, I am actually looking forward to revisiting one of my favorite Wolverine stories of recent years, Old Man Logan. Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s original run was one of the best Wolverine stories I ever read. Seriously, where else are you going to see the Venom symbiote fused with a T-Rex and some rather redneck-looking Hulks. Old Man Logan was such awesome story and ended in a way that left me wanting more. Now thanks to Marvel Secret Wars 2015, the opportunity to revisit one of my favorite Wolverine stories has arrived.
Gaumer: Secret Wars Journal #1
I’m all in for this Secret Wars thing, and it’s going to be a wild ride. But, like any amusement park, there’s always hidden gems that many of us don’t want to risk, but I’m excited to do it. Fresh blood and a great backdrop could make for some good stories, and I’m betting my first book of the week on it.
• Can an enslaved band of MUTANTS in EGYPTIA overthrow their overlord, KHONSHU?
• Can YOU afford not to read the coolest, hippest, most continuity-important book in all of SECRET WARS??? Because this is TOTALLY THAT BOOK. But don’t tell anyone. It’ll be our little Secret…Wars Journal.
Adam: Transformer More Than Meets the Eye #41
With both Marvel and DC stuck in their summer events and pumping out almost nothing but tie-ins, I have really had a chance to focus on some of the unsung great books in my pull list. MTMTE is consistantly one of the best books month in and month out with excellent characters, smart plots, dire consequences, and a ton of fun. Check this one out and I promise you will not be disappointed.
Those are our picks, what’s on the top of your stack this Wednesday?
