Each week there are comics that come out that I just can’t wait to read, and some that I really don’t care about. And because this is a blog where I talk about comics, I thought why not take a look at some of the comics that I’m excited about this week in alphabetical order so as to avoid obvious favoritism.
Check back Saturday (maybe later) when I’ve had a chance to read most, if not all, of the below and I’ll let you know if they lived up to my expectations. There’s no defined limit on the comics I’ll include here, and some weeks will be more empty than others.
Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior #10 (Valiant)
As the fantastic Labyrinth comes to a close with what promises to be a bloody conclusion, I’m already looking ahead and wondering what seeds Robert Venditti has already planted for the future. This is easily one of my favourite series on the racks every week, and a large part of that is because of the way Venditti has carefully crafted the story over the past ten issues to culminate here (at least in part, I’m sure). I’ll have more to say in my review, but me expectations are pretty high at this point.
Batman #5 (DC)
Speaking of high expectations: Tom King and David Finch’s Batman is one of the many great things coming from DC post Rebirth, and the tale of the rise and fall of two young heroes has me thoroughly enraptured.
Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files: Wild Card #5 (Dynamite)
I gotta say that this miniseries has surprised me. I never expect to enjoy the Dresden comics a much as I do – I still prefer the books, but the comics aren’t far off.
Klaus #7 (Boom!)
Seems a little odd reading about Santa in August, but at this point his yearly visit is only four months away. Grant Morrison’s origin story is coming to a close, which is bittersweet, but I’m looking forward to finally getting to finish the story.
Superman #5 (DC)
Apparently I’m a Superman fan post Rebirth. Who knew?
