Batwoman 2, if anything like the first issue (and the Detective run of the character before), will simply be must-read material. It’s been perfectly new-reader friendly from what I gather and – seriously – this art must be seen to be believed. J. H. Williams III, Amy Reeder & William H. Blackman seem to have an excellent formula for making this a title that should be on every fan’s list. Get in before it’s too late! The fun bus waits for no one!
X-Men: Regenesis bridges the Schism event with the official Regenesis-branded relaunch of the X-books and I’m very excited about it, if slightly unsure about what this one-shot will provide us with. Clearly, it’s the issue where the line drawn in the meteorite by Wolverine & Cyclops (with their dicks, of course) will be spelled out for each of the mutants on Utopia and we’ll see who is on who’s side but will we see the status quo of each of the books set up? Will there be big bads introduced? Much mystery surrounds it but I have a feeling this will be more for fans who have follows so far and not necessarily for new fans looking to jump on to a title after the event hits.
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man 3 is going to be one hell of a comic! I say this with full confidence in a lead duo that have yet to fail us and I don’t see how they ever could. Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli are pure talent and pure creators. They’re telling Miles’ story with such empathy, humor and intrigue that I don’t see how this wasn’t number one in September! I say this every time about books I like but trust that this is well worth the price point. If you’ve ever been a teenager, you can connect with this young man struggling with a new experience and a dangerous world.
