Wow. Quite the week for quality comics. Here’s what I’ll be spending my hard earned (but not really) money on this week:
Detective Comics #857
Fantastic Four #571
Power Girl #5
Superman: Secret Origins #1
I’m on the fence right now about X-Men: The List even though Matt Fraction and comic artist extraordinaire Alan Davis are working on it. I’ll have to flip through it first (much like I did with Moon Knight last week before I decided not to buy it). The first two The List
one-shits one shots have been quite worthless.
Gary Frank comes back to Superman with Secret Origins. Jeff Parker is writing a new indie book, Underground. Jonathan Hickman continues his Fantastic Four run. Cory Walker returns to Invincible for a two issue stint. Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner continue with what is one of the most fun comics in the industry right now, Power Girl. And last but certainly not least we have the new issue of Detective Comics. Nuff’ said.
Do not fret those of you who do not care for quality writing in your comics. New Avengers, Spider-Woman and Old Man Logan will be waiting for you at your local comic shop. They need your validation to give them some sense of self worth. Buy them and love them. But like an ugly person with a smoking body you are dating, do not tell your friends you are spending time with them because deep down inside you are quite embarrassed about the whole situation.
