War of the Green Lanterns Aftermath 1 is my first title this week because of all the exciting comics out this week (barring a Flashpoint tie-in or two, I’d want all of these in position 1) I simply can’t wait to see how Tony Bedard deals with the humongous logistical and emotional damage done to the Green Lantern Corps. So much death coupled with so much loss and a few new mysteries thrown in are sure to make this one hell of a rollercoaster.
Generation Hope 9 could very well be the point that I stop reading Generation Hope and Kieron Gillen’s work altogether or the one that cements him in my hall of fame. I’m being so dramatic because Messer Gillen has wonderfully chosen to cover an important and relevant issue in this his new and quirky X-series. Gay bullying and suicide are on the docket and require an immensely talented scripting and art team to handle properly. I have high hopes but things could go south very quickly, even in a fairly liberal atmosphere like Marvel. Hope finds a new Light and deals with his tribulations while attempting to set him on the right path. You have my full attention and my highest hopes, Kieron Gillen, I can’t wait to read it!
Gates of Gotham 3 is confidently placed here because Scott Snyder and Kyle Higgins have displayed a deft hand at crafting compelling superheroic mysteries! The Batfamily is under attack but never backing down from a fight! Dick and Tim are facing off against The Architect as he seeks to destroy the first families of Gotham! New puzzles surface as answers about the city and its history come to light. I foresee another great time with the Batclan ahead!
