This weeks new comics books are due tomorrow, and while its a slower weeks compared to recent weeks here are my top books for tomorrow.
Black Hammer #5
Official Synopsis: Of the exiled heroes, only Colonel Weird can leave the mysterious farm where they’ve spent the last ten years. But the confusion of the Para-Zone may hamper their escape more than it helps!
Why its a Pick: This has been a brilliant take on both the super hero and the sci-fi genre so far, with some very engaging characters and some really intriguing back story- how did our former heroes get here and how are they kept in the town? And if this issue promises to give us some of those answers then consider this a must read.
Kill or be Killed #4
Official Synopsis: END OF STORY ARC! The shocking end to the first arc, as Dylan’s secret collides with his home life. BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS’s new series keeps the hits coming, and remember, each issue includes fantastic back page extras and articles.
Why its a Pick: This has been everything you expect from Brubaker- the story is on point, building in tension and intrigue and already has a well established world and central character. This book delivers on story in droves and if this issue does reveal the big secret it could be very interesting to see how hi on and off again girl friend feels about his deal with the devil!
Official Synopsis: Thanos, possibly the most evil individual in the Marvel Universe, is back…and he’s out for vengeance on all who would oppose him. Unfortunately for the Mad Titan, he’s also heading for an unexpected reckoning…with his family. Take an ongoing walk on the dark side of the galaxy, following the deadly trail of destruction left in the wake of…THANOS!
Why its a Pick: Thanos has been a huge villain for almost forever and seeing a villain of this level get his own title really intrigues me. Marvel have shown they can do this well, with the recent amazing success of Darth Vader title- so if this follows a similar formula of keeping the Titan a total badass that destroys everything in his path then this should be great fun.
Book of the week
This title has been so good, that there isn’t anything else that’s getting read first tomorrow. Brubaker is on form (as always) and this title deserves to be the top read of everyone- yes that means YOU!!!
