BOOM! STUDIOS

Incredibles: Family Matters #2

Marcia Takara and Mark Waid continue the adventures of Disney’s finest family of heroes this week, and I won’t be missing one page. BOOM!’s got a good thing going with their Disney licenses, and with a creative team and a franchise as bankable as this, your $2.99 is going to be well spent. Besides, if you don’t buy this, the chances for another Incredibles story coming out start shrinking, and we wouldn’t want that.

DC COMICS

Battle for the Cowl #3

Tony Daniel’s segue from “Batman RIP” into whatever DC has planned next has been fairly enjoyable, if not a bit by the numbers. Daniel’s art since he joined the Bat-books has been very consistent and enjoyable, and I for one would plunk down $3.99 for a book he was drawing, regardless of who it starred. Lucky for me he’s working in one of the best universes there is. Don’t miss out on the book sure to set the pace for the next few storylines featuring Batman… whoever it ends up being.

Four Eyes #3

Joe Kelly and Max Fiumara are doing some really interesting work on this book. It’d be a shame if you missed out on another installment of this story. Hey, I’d pay a lot more than $3.5o for a comic about dragon pit fighting, wouldn’t you?

MARVEL COMICS

Agents of Atlas #5

Right now, there’s a three-way tie for the best new book at Marvel. I’d have a real hard time choosing which one would reign supreme between Dark Avengers, Secret Warriors, and this book. Jeff Parker is doing a great job allowing new comic readers to transition into a book that could be bogged down by some incredulous continuity problems, but isn’t, and I can’t stress enough how badly you guys need to be reading this insanely fun $2.99 book.

Captain America #50

It’s been a year in Marvel time since Steve Rogers died. Just how much has the world changed? Find out in this $3.99 book from Brubaker and Ross.

Wolverine: Weapon X #2

Jason Aaron and Ron Garney continue the newest Wolverine book this week, and for the first time in a long time, I can say that this is one Wolverine book that I’ll be sticking with. You should definitely be grabbing this $3.99 book.

Trade Paperback/Hardcover of the Week

Invincible: Who’s the Boss?

This trade collects a crucial arc of Robert Kirkman’s Invincible where the titular character is forced to go toe to toe with the organization he’s been working for since becoming a hero. Ryan Ottley’s art is eye catching. Kirkman’s scripting is impeccable. If you haven’t been reading this book, you really need to start. Like this week. Be sure to add this $16.99 book to your pile. You won’t regret it.

That wraps it up. See you next week.
