Moderate week for me this week...

Amazing Spider-Man #629 — Two issues into this Juggernaut/Captain Universe storyline, I don't really have a good sense of what's going on...but I mean that in a good way.
Captain America #605 — "Two Americas" wraps up...and I think this is the last issue with a "Nomad" backup, too.
Mighty Avengers #36 — Final issue. :(
X-Force #26 — I'm still not entirely convinced of "Second Coming", so this is a maybe...
Comment by Cavaliere (moderator emeritus) on April 24, 2010 at 6:40pm
It might as well be "Comics for May 1." I know that I'm not going to go in until FCBD.

Cars #4
Incredibles #8
Batman: Brave and the Bold #16
Green Lantern Corps #47
Green Hornet #3 - If this doesn't really knock my socks off them I won't buy any more issues.
Angel #32
Doctor Who #10
Captain America #605
Mighty Avengers #36

The first three titles here all go in my son's collection. I just told Alex about this week's title plus FCBD and he said "I'm ruling the comic book world!"

DC COMICS
Justice League The Rise Of Arsenal #2 - picked up the first issue out of Green Arrow nostalgia. On the bubble.

Superman #699
Superman Last Stand Of New Krypton #3 - I sincerely hope all this claptrap over the last year is truly building up to an interesting resolution, because I'm running out of patience.

DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT
Green Hornet #3 - I can sort of see why Kevin Smith's script for Green Hornet (transmogrified into this comic) got the boot. It's kind of preditable. The art (once you get past the cover) is also kind of dull.

EAGLEMOSS PUBLICATIONS
Buffy & Angel Figure Collection Magazine #5 (Faith), $20.00

IDW PUBLISHING
Doctor Who #10 (Ongoing)(Paul Grist Regular Cover), I'm not buying this because the stories and interior art are pretty blah, but I which they'd publish a compilation of Grist's covers.

IMAGE COMICS
Invincible #71, $2.99
Walking Dead #71, $2.99
71 issues in, and Robert Kirkman's tentpole books are both still interesting, but for very different reasons. Invincible keeps upping the ante, and trying to throw curveballs, with some success. This book was on the bubble for a while, but Kirkman keeps managing to hold my interest. Walking Dead on the other, has got to be the book with the strongest concept and best execution in comics right now. The simple idea (living in Zombie world) has not been changed in the slightest over the last 7 years, and each plot twist has been extremely logical and organic. Even the stunt events (i.e. major characters getting the axe) feels authentic. I’m starting to think this comic could survive without Rick, the main character. I’m also starting to think book writes itself, and that Kirkman doesn’t actually do a lot of work. It’s like he’s created a perpetual motion comic plot machine: it literally cannot die. But unlike the zombies, it definitaly has a brain. After 7 years, I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface of this world. A plodding, shambling, totally relentless wonder month in and month out. Definitely the best book you’re not reading.


MARVEL COMICS
Captain America #605 - I have to confess I found the whole Reborn thing a little too contrived. I think I’m running out of steam on this book.
Fantastic Four #578 – I want to like this book, I do. It just feels like Hickman is trying a little too hard. No reflection on him, though. FF is a hard book to get right, and some of the best writers in the business haven’t been able to do it. This version just doesn’t quite gel.
Hulk #21 – another book I really wanted to like, but I can’t quite figure this one out. At first, I thought it because I was reading it and not the some of the other Hulk titles, but having picked a most of them during the Fall of the Hulks storyline, I have to say I find them all pretty incomprehensible. I’m not sure the Red Hulk was neat enough an idea to have been dragged out for as long as it has.

Invincible Iron Man #25 – The wheat in the chaff of the current Iron Man glut. Unlike “Reborn,” I found the recent “death and resurrection” of Tony Stark an interesting and engaging story. Horse races.
Comment by Alan M. on April 26, 2010 at 3:49pm
Captain America #605 - I have to confess I found the whole Reborn thing a little too contrived. I think I’m running out of steam on this book.

I skipped "Reborn", and I don't find myself particularly regretting that decision. I've since read it in collected form, but it's not particularly informing my Captain America experience — for me, Steve Rogers being back is a magic whoozits that happened off-camera, and it works better that way.

Hulk #21 – another book I really wanted to like, but I can’t quite figure this one out.

I was never going to buy these books, but I thought I'd give them a fair shake as I had (free) access to the trades. I made it through the first two, scratching my head all the while, but couldn't make it more than an issue or two into vol. 3 before deciding it was a complete waste of time. It's a shame because I might be interested in Pak's Incredible Hulk if it didn't seem so inextricably entwined with this...mess right now.
Comment by Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod) on April 26, 2010 at 5:43pm
Looks like only Wonder Woman for me; I wouldn't bother going except I still haven't got last week's books, and I'll be in the city on Wednesday anyway.
