Weekly Anticipation: X-Club 7

Animal Man 4/Swamp Thing 4; I am totally cheating this week in a BIG way by choosing 5 top picks as opposed to 3 but DC is totally killing me with my options! Animal Man and Swamp Thing, while very different in feel, are completely at the top of their game AND even managing to … Continue reading

Weekly Anticipation: Winter Bucky

Captain America and Bucky 624 is the finale of this re-telling of Bucky Barnes’ story since World War II by Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko and it was been a masterful character study into one of the most interesting heroes to emerge from modern superhero stories. I’m not quite certain how this and the other … Continue reading

Weekly Anticipation: Haus of Kara

Supergirl 2 actually wins out for me as my most anticipated title this week because I just could not wait to see what happened next after issue 1. Mahmud Asar and Dan Green have such a clean and idyllic art style, it feels vaguely like Francis Manapul to me while still being unique. The Michael … Continue reading
