Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: June 24th, 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: Planet Hulk #2

Admittedly, this comic has a very dumb premise: Gladiator Captain America teams up with the Hulk and a T-Rex to fight a continent of OTHER Hulks. But I’ll be damned if that isn’t the most fun kind of dumb premise. I was surprised by how much I liked last month’s debut issue, so I’ll be indulging this guilty pleasure again on Wednesday.

(Writer) Sam Humphries (Artist) Marc Laming (Cover) Mike Del Mundo
• Gladiator STEVE ROGERS, his trusty steed DEVIL DINOSAUR and the mysterious DOC GREEN go deeper into one of the most dangerous domains of BATTLEWORLD, the HULK infested territory known as GREENLAND!
•  WILD HULKS in the jungle! GIANT HULKS in lakes of fire!
•  But is the journey the most perilous part of this hellish mission or is it one of the travelers?

David: Wayward #9

I really want to see a Monster Mashers reunion. With things building up for another supernatural rumble in Tokyo, it needs to happen soon. But man, Tokyo never seems to catch a break. I hope that the gang gets back together before whatever Ayane and the spiders have planned goes off. Seriously Ayane, spiders! Why did it have to be spiders?wayward#9

Gaumer: X-Men ’92 #1

Of all the comic book and comic book related minutia that came out of the 1990s – hologram and other variant covers, speculation, and the near collapse of the entire industry – the X-Men Animated Series remains a shining beacon of awesome in an era full of a lot of pretty terrible things. Of course, no one can be quite sure what this move to paper, or the Secret Wars spin, will do these these amazing iterations of X-Characters, but I for one simply cannot wait to find out.

X-MEN 92 #1
(Writer) Chris Sims, Chad Bowers (Artist) Scott Koblish (Cover) Pepe Larraz
• Everyone’s favorite version of the X-Men from the ’90s is back!
•  When Baron Kelly charges the Clear Mountain Project and it’s mysterious new director with “mutant rehabilitation,” it’s up to the X-Men to investigate!
•  PLUS: Free Range Sentiels?!?

Adam: We are Robin #1

I’m not gonna lie, the only real reason I want this book is because of its awesome cover. Sure, the concept of a street gang in Gotham based of Robin is interesting, but that cover is so damn pretty.

Publisher: DC COMICS
(Writer) Lee Bermejo (Artist) Rob Haynes, Khary Randolph (Cover) Lee Bermejo
Spinning out of the pages of BATMAN! The teenagers of Gotham City have adopted the “R” and made it their own. A new Robin? No, HUNDREDS of new Robins! Don’t miss the start of this new series from rising star writer Lee Bermejo (JOKER, SUICIDERS), who also provides the covers!
