Today sees a whole new host of comic books released, and there’s a bunch of number ones coming with some regular titles but whats worth all the money you need to shell out? Well here are my picks for the week.
Death of X #1
Official Synopsis: What happened eight months ago that set the Inhumans and X-Men on a collision course? Find out here! The Inhumans travel to Japan where one of the Terrigen Clouds creates a shocking new Inhuman. The X-Men travel to Muir Island where the second Terrigen Cloud causes something truly terrible. When these two events collide, a war of catastrophic proportions explode!
Why its a Pick: This should be great, as one of the big mysteries in the Marvel U is what the hell happened to Mutants and Scott Summers (in particular) in the time jump, and this promises to give us the answers. I’m excited to see where this goes as Marvel seems to have moved some of its focus of the mutants, it should be nice to see them having their spotlight moment.
Official Synopsis: Dr Jonathan Shipwright, sole survivor of a very unusual and very secret shipwreck, doesn’t know where he is. Seemingly trapped on an endless road, in pursuit of a saboteur who holds the key to his salvation — or doom. Industry legend WARREN ELLIS joins AfterShock comics with this mysterious and captivating tale full of shock, secrets and surprises.
Why its a Pick: Warren Ellis always delivers some brilliantly written and story heavy titles, so if this follows his career long path of delivering great story than this should be one to watch right now.
Official Synopsis: A BRAND NEW SERIES!
From New York Times bestselling writer BRIAN BUCCELLATO & JENNIFER YOUNG, CANNIBAL is about the denizens of a small Everglades town desperately trying to hold onto their everyday lives at the dawn of a cannibal pandemic. With no cure in sight, the region has become split over what to do with the victims, though for Cash and Grady Hansen the answer is simple: Kill them. But all of that changes when the virus begins to infect
Why its a Pick: This book reads like it could be a real good tale of post apocalyptic life, and the writing talent here is strong so this has good potential. This is a book that I hadn’t heard a lot about until this week, but since doing some extra research I’m excited by the prospect of this book- so lets hope I’m not wrong.
Book of the Week
Its been a few weeks since my book of the week was from a ‘Big Two’ publisher but the prospect of answers here has me excited. Although I’m expecting Shipwrecked to deliver the better story, my own love and affection for the X-Men cant have me pick anything else this week.
