Every week, one item or another in my pull and hold stands out for me above the rest in one way or another. Sometimes it’s a periodical, sometimes a graphic novel, sometimes a collection. Does that happen to you? If so, let’s hear about it here. It can be an item you’ve long anticipated or something you bought on a whim. If it’s something you were really looking forward to but ended up being a big disappointment, let’s hear about that here, too. I’ve been meaning to start this topic for a long time now, but chose today to post about something I’ve been waiting for a long time, long before it was even solicited.

SILVER SURFER EPIC COLLECTION BY STEVE ENGLEHART AND MARSHAL ROGERS

This is a favorite run of mine, but I’ve read it only twice: once as it was released, and I re-read it once after that. It came out as an “ESSENTIAL” a few years ago, but for this I held out for color.

EDIT: Most weeks I make my picks before I have read them, but feel free to choose either the books you anticipate most before you read or enjoy the most after you have read them.

Of the four comics I read this week, my favorite is Batgirls #12:  I'm really enjoying this book.

The other three were:

Batman Incorporated #2:  This series is OK, but not great.  It's on the "May Drop" list.

Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #6:  While this series has had its moments, overall, it's been a disappointment.  One more issue to go.

The New Golden Age #1: An OK book, but not near as good as I'd hoped it would be.  As for the "Lost Thirteen" characters, I may have more to say about them later.

I haven't read any of this week's new comics yet, but I feel confident posting my "pick" in advance.

I said  I wasn't going to do this, but I declare this week's pick a tie.

Avengers: War Across Time #1

Wasp #1
