Jules: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #2

The last issue was beyond solid. The last page left my jaw on the floor. Is Ultimate Peter Parker Back? Will Miles’ father come back? Miles has a whole lot to figure out! David Marquez owns up to his new Young Gun title. Bendis has honestly yet to slow down on this title. I am super stoked for this issue. You should be!

Taylor: Original Sin #3

With our villains’ identities revealed, this issue will hopefully delve in to their motivations, all while our heroes are being exposed to some long-buried secrets. This issue should play an important role in fleshing out the plot of the overall book, and could go a long way towards establishing the event’s success or failure.

Christian: The New 52 – Futures End #5

It could have gone two ways with my pick this week, but since both of my choices are weekly books, there will be another one next week, so I flipped a coin and Batman Eternal lost out over The New 52 – Futures End #5. This title has been hit or miss in its first month, but the stage is set for something really big to go down in this issue. Mr. T is a badass mother – shut your mouth – and we hopefully see his evil, universe destroying tech this week.

Gaumer: Iron Fist: The Living Weapon #3

There once existed a time at Marvel Comics when labels like writer, artist, cover artist, storyteller, and the like weren’t so damned important. Steranko, Kirby, Ditko. Yeah sure, these guys are artists, okay. But you know what else they were? Amazing writers! There’s a certain quality that a comic book adopts when there’s one person – a single creative mind – doing EVERYTHING on a title, and that’s exactly what we’ve been getting with Kaare Andrews’ Iron Fist: The Living Weapon. I’m hoping that the same creative synergy Andrews has been gifting readers in the first two issues continues in this book, and I’ll find out first thing Wednesday.

Jules: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #1

Brian Michael Bendis has been delivering a Spider-Man tale for my generation since it’s inception at the tail end of the 90’s. This recent reboot comes at a solid time in the Ultimate Universe as the rebuild after 616 Galactus destroyed New Jersey. Now a member the fresh, young Ultimates, how will Miles Morales continue his life and the legacy of Peter Parker the original Ultimate Spider-Man? I’m ready to pick this one up!

Taylor: She-Hulk #4

She-Hulk has been the most pleasant surprise of the year for me, and I’m looking forward to this new issue. With the promise of a showdown with Dr Doom, it’ll be interesting to see how Charles Soule keeps up his blend of super-heroics and legal intrigue. Should be fun!

Christian: Detective Comics #31

Another week, another issue of Batman, but this time it’s not Eternal or vs. Bane, it’s the tour de force of art known as Detective Comics by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. The job this dynamic duo did on The Flash was special, but the seeing them work on the Bat last ish was an amazing thing to behold. Can’t wait to get into this comic come Wednesday!

Gaumer: The New 52 – Futures End #1

Yes this is just a really big What If? sort of book, yes it’s a weekly investment, and yes I wish they’d punctuate better (of maybe it’s a bunch of futures ending??), but the FCBD #0 issue of this series really got me going, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Batman Beyond travels back in the day to stop Brother Eye from putting the Borg on the entire DCU. This one is going to be fun!

Jesse: Nailbiter #1

Image Comics has been hitting the shelves really hard with number 1’s lately, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The publisher adores topics and stories that the Big 2 won’t touch with a 10-foot pole, and my pick this week is a testament to that fact. Serial killers solving crimes isn’t anything new, but when Scott Snyder says something is a great idea, you listen and listen hard.

Nailbiter 1

NAILBITER #1
story: JOSHUA WILLIAMSON
art / cover: MIKE HENDERSON
MAY 7 / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $2.99
JOSHUA WILLIAMSON & MIKE HENDERSON deliver a mystery that mixes Twin Peaks with the horror of Se7en!
Buckaroo, Oregon has given birth to sixteen of the vilest serial killers in the world. An obsessed FBI profiler investigating the town has suddenly gone missing, and now an NSA Agent must work with the notorious serial killer Edward “Nailbiter” Warren to find his friend and solve the mystery of “Where do serial killers come from?”
“If Josh died I wish he’d leave NAILBITER to me in his will so I could say it was my idea.” — Scott Snyder (SEVERED, Batman, American Vampire)

Jules: Inhuman #1

Charles Soule is running a hot hand in a dice game and I’m really looking forward to his next roll. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Inhumans, Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee really provided one of the best tellings of Marvel’s Strangest Family! In the wake of Inhumanity which seems almost forgotten now here stands the old and new Inhumans after the fall of Attilan. All that aside Joe Madureira’s art is solid and it’s gonna rad for this title!

Gaumer: Detective Comics #30

This is the one I’ve been waiting for! The creative team that made The Flash one of my favorite monthly titles is back, on a Batman book, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I have no idea what the story is going to be about, and I don’t really care. I’m getting this for simple reason: Mind-blowing art! That’s what gave The Flash so much appeal for so many months, and I’m hoping beyond hope that the creative team follows through on this title. It’s on the top of my stack this week.

Taylor: Black Widow #5

This issue brings us a first in the relaunched series as we finally have a continuing story arc to read through. The art on this book has been a feast for the eyes every month, and I’m glad that the story is finally getting a chance to lay out some roots. Here’s hoping!

This is a really step forward in the continuation of the Ultimate legacy as the current Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales stands with the friends and family of the fallen Peter Parker as they take a serious look back at the life of the first Ultimate Spider-Man. Something I can’t wait to get my hands on.
