Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: July 8th, 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: Runaways #2

With issue 1, this book showed all the signs of keeping up the legacy of Runaways by offering a cast of young characters that don’t get stuck in mopey spirals of self-pity, which is wonderful treat for a teen-centered book. That might sound like I’m damning it with feint praise, but it really is off to a great start with fun characters and great creative talent, making it one of my favorite Secret Wars tie-ins so far.

• It’s Final Exam Day at Battleworld’s Institute for Gifted Youths!
•  Of course, Battleworld’s equivalent of a final exam is a brutal deathmatch between students!
•  But don’t worry, y’all, Molly Hayes has totally got this. No matter what Jubilee says about her being too young or “in way over her head.” She’s frickin’ Princess Powerful!

David: Saga #30

It’s the conclusion to the fifth story arc of the series. There’s so much I want to see happen in this one issue. I really hope all the stories from this arc get some closure this issue. Because I’ve got a feeling that this will be the last issue of the series for a while. Considering that both Staples and Vaughn are working on other projects, the Archie relaunch and We Stand On Guard respectively. My gut tells me there’s going to be a wait for issue #31.

Gaumer: Big Man Plans #4

A little man on a big rampage, and it all ends here! Eric Powell has been telling a truly wonderful tale for anyone who has ever felt crapped on because they were different, and I’m anxious to see this violent, revenge-filled rampage come to the bloody end. I’m not sure how he’ll top the last issue, but utter brutality of an order unseen is on the menu if it does. Man, I hope it does.

Adam: Civil War #1

Charles Soule. Leinil Yu. Arguably one of the biggest events of all time. Enough said.

(Writer) Charles Soule (Artist/Cover) Leinil Francis Yu
• The Civil War never ended. Welcome to the Warzone, where six years of non-stop battle between the forces of the Blue and the Iron have split the nation down its center, utterly transforming it. In a world of new alliances and strange enemies, President Tony Stark and General Steve Rogers meet to make one last attempt at peace.

Jules: Lando #1

Charles Soule and Alex Maleev. Come on. Marvels Star Wars has been stellar. And I just know this mini series is gonna be rad. No brainier for me this week. Charles Soule has had a hot hand in a dice game for me for a while and I just know this gonna be a wonderfully fun series. Plus Alex Maleev’s Art has always been a high selling point for me everytime he touches a book. So this one is an easy one.

(Writer) Charles Soule (Artist) Alex Maleev (Cover) TBD
You know him…you love him…now, join him for his biggest caper as master of charm Lando Calrissian gets his very own comic book! Before he joined the rebellion, before he ran Cloud City, Lando made his way in the galaxy getting by on some swindles, some swagger, and a smile. Lobot at his side, Lando has a plan to steal a very valuable ship…but has he bitten off more than he can chew? Writer Charles Soule (DEATH OF WOLVERINE, INHUMAN, SHE-HULK) and artist Alex Maleev (DAREDEVIL, SPIDER-WOMAN, MOON KNIGHT) bring us the tale of a scoundrel in his natural element-trouble!
