Jules: Uncanny Avengers #19
This title has really been the Avengers title of a lifetime. A somewhat sequel to Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force, I am absolutely loving this title. With Daniel Acuna back with the art I’m more than happy to pick this one up! The mutants now on their own planet, Earth now lost. How will Havoc fix everything? With the help of Kang the Conqueror and his lost in time misfits! I am beyond stoked to see what’s slotted next for this incredibly Avengers story, this extension of one of the best X-Men sagas. Rick Remender has yet to let me down on this one!

Taylor: Original Sin #0
Another year, another event, and Marvel is kicking off their Original Sin book this week. Events tend to be very hit and miss, but I have a lot of faith in the creative teams here, both in Mark Waid for this prequel issue and Jason Aaron on the main book. And really, Jim Cheung’s art alone should probably make Issue #0 worth a look.

Christian: Justice League United #0
I’ve been waiting on this one since DC first solicited the book last year, and it’s finally here! Jeff Lemire moves on from Animal Man and throws the character onto a new team…in Canada? New team, new characters, new dynamic, new creative team. This should be fun, and it’s on the top of my stack this weeks.

Gaumer: Guardians of the Galaxy #14
The Trial of Jean Grey is over, and good riddance, I say. I like my X-Men and I like my Guardians, but they are not peanut butter and chocolate, and they should not be combined. We get a double-sized anniversary of something or other ish, but the real pull is Captain Marvel and Venom (Yes! Venom!) are joining the team. Knowing Marvel, they’ll be last page reveals, but I’m still excited.

Jesse: 7th Sword #1
It’s not often I look forward to an IDW issue one but this one caught my eye in a preview sometime ago. The story of a mercenary Samurai taking out robots for the sake of village in the dessert? Science Fiction Samurai are just some of my favorite kind. Written by a newcomer John Ruffalo a former screen writer, with the talented Nelson Blake II, an artist I’ve known to bounce around the top cow titles! It may not look like the most gripping book but I’m a sucker for Sci-Fi Samurai fighting the good fight! I’m gonna give it a try at at least.
7th Sword #1|
John Raffo (writer) • Nelson Blake II (artist) • Andrew C. Robinson (colorist)
Daniel Cray—a samurai mercenary—stumbles upon the legendary city of ZenZion, a mysterious desert outpost under siege from a vicious warlord. The peace-loving citizenry beg Cray to defend them… forcing Cray to reluctantly draw his deadly “Malathane” sword one last time to battle a relentless army of robots and their savage masters. Science Fiction meets Samurai in an epic new adventure from John Raffo (Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story).
