Season 4 of The Boondocks is on the way. Here’s hoping for a triumphant return for A Pimp Named Slickback.
GIGANTIC is the word. Good thing I get paid tomorrow. I picked up the following (a few more on the way, I wanted Bloodshot #1 but no dice):
Amazing Spider-Man: Ends of the Earth (one-shot) – Maybe it’s good?
Avengers vs. X-Men #04 – This I know isn’t good; in fact it’s stupid. The Cap vs. Wolverine scrape from last issue was ridiculous and not in a good way. This is just a dumb hero v hero battle comic, shades of the marvel/DC crossover where fans voted on whether Logan could beat Lobo, etc. Stupid on another level too, ’cause I keep getting them.
Dancer #01 – I had all but written Image off but someone they’ve come back strong with a varied line of interesting super-hero/non-super hero material that’s kept me intrigued. I’ll at least pick up a first or second issue of a new series. Speaking of:
Danger Club #02 – hooked from the first issue.
Daredevil #13 – This new quasi-lighthearted take on DD has me looking forward to this every month. Let’s hope Waid can string together a run like Bendis.
Fantastic Four #605.1 – Impulse purchase.
Fury Max #02 – I loved both Punisher MAX series, so if Ennis is involved I’m there.
Hardcore #01 – See Dancer and Danger Club.
Incredible Hulk #07.1 – Where did you go Marc Silvestri???
Justice League #09 – I swore for years I would never read a Justice League comic and yet here we are. Stil marveling (heh) at the fact that the New 52 gamble seems to have paid off.
Locke & Key – Clockworks #06 – When I first heard Stephen King’s kid was getting into comics, I gave the news an eye roll and that’s it. That was before I started reading L&K. Now I tell everyone about this. Read it. It’s good.
Pigs #06 – I forgot to get this issue at some point, so this is backfill. Another very intriguing pick from Image.
Saga #03 – The art isn’t exactly my thing, but hell, BKVaugh is writing it so I’ll give it a good, oh, 20 issues.
The Manhattan Project #03 – I LOVE this so far. The closest thing I can compare it to is Planetary, which I could read on a daily basis. That series might be in my Top 5 All Time.
Uncanny X-Men #12 – See AvX #4. I’m a sucker for crossovers, especially ones staring the X-Men. I believe this affliction started way back at X-Cutioner’s Song.
Winter Soldier #05 – Impulse.
Wonder Woman #09 – Another favorite New 52 title. I can honestly say I’d never picked up a Wonder Woman book before this reboot but I’m glad I gave this book a chance.
X-Factor #236 – I didn’t really check the cover too carefully, ’cause I thought it was Gideon on the cover. What can I say, I lie his name and I like his topknot. Sadly, it’s some doucher named Scattershot which sounds like your run of the mill mid-’90’s Image character. BloodStryke! HellWulf!
This Thursday (05.17.12 for those of you in the future), Community will feature the gang morphing into video game characters to “Help Pierce stay in the one percent.” Here’s hoping for a brief detour into Altered Beast territory.
First Sin City 2 and now (official, poster-y confirmation of) Anchorman 2? Hot damn, a good week for movie posters.
