Another HUGE week, so here’s the Top 5 (+1) books I’m looking forward to this week!

Wildcard: Futures End #17

This book has really started to heat up, and we get a glimpse at Superman (or whoever it really is under that helmet) in this issue, so it’s near the top of the read pile for me this week!

5: X-O Manowar #28

Armor Hunters has been amazing, and the true history of the Armor Hunters is revealed in this issue!  If you haven’t tried Valiant comics by now, then I don’t even know who you are anymore ;)

4: Guardians of the Galaxy #18

Let’s see what we have here: McGuinness art? YES! The fate of Richard Rider (Nova)? YES!  The Cancerverse? OMG, YES!  This looks to be the best issue of GotG yet, and Bendis said that 19 will be EVEN better! Can’t wait :)

3: Black Science #8

Do you need a reason for this book? I don’t think so, it’s Black Science, that’s all you need to know.

2: Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2

Issue 1 was the first Doctor Who comic I ever bought (that and the Eleventh Doctor #1, since they came out together), and I like what they’re doing!  The story was enough to hook me, and the art was fantastic! Sorry, that’s the Ninth Doctor’s catch phrase.  Well, Allons-y! (there, that’s better)

1: Superman #34

You probably knew that my love for Superman, Geoff Johns, and JRJr would be at the top (again), but I can’t help it!  This book has been everything I’ve wanted from Superman since the New 52 launched, and I can’t help that I’m still a fanboy (nor am I sorry that I am) :)

What books are you excited for today?

#NCBD On My Radar 8/27/14

Tomorrow is NCBD once again, and without any new #1’s from the “Big 2”, here’s an all-Indie edition of “On My Radar!”

5: Bob’s Burgers #1

Ok, this is kind of a cheat since it’s based off of a popular TV show, but Dynamite isn’t one of the Big 2, so it’s “indie,” right?  Anyway, fans of the show should get a kick out of this new series!

4: Brainstorm #1

This book piqued my interest because I live in the Midwest, and it’s tornado season (severe weather warning as I’m writing this post, too).  I love sci-fi and the premise of a US Military solution to climate change, who wouldn’t give this book a shot? Check out a free preview here

3: POP #1

This new Dark Horse title has a pretty cool premise: what if celebrities were literally products that were grown by the world’s wealthiest minds? Seems pretty cool (although today’s celebrities are “manufactured” in the studio anyway, so it’s not far off)

2: Sundowners #1

Another new Dark Horse title, but this one follows a super-team that are “sworn to protect humanity from inter-dimensional invaders,” but are those threats real or imagined? Written by Tim Seeley, this one seems like something right up my alley!

1: Wayward #1

As fall approaches, and Halloween gets closer, the supernatural books start to pique my interest more and more.  This new Image comic looks pretty cool, and it’s said to combine “the camaraderie and emotion of Buffy with the action and mystery of Hellboy,” so it seems like a pretty safe bet!

Any new books I missed that are on YOUR radar?

Another HUGE week, so here’s the Top 5 (+1) books I’m looking forward to this week!

Wildcard: Multiversity #1

I know, I know…NO #1s! I just couldn’t help myself, though! I’ve been looking forward to this book for YEARS, and at least it’s my “wildcard” because it isn’t a known commodity (yet). Deal with it, it’s my blog :P

5: The New 52: Futures End #16

I have to say, after catching up this last week, I’m really digging this book, and can’t wait to find out who is under the Superman mask!

4: Supreme: Blue Rose #2

Ellis and Lotay hooked me with issue one, and it definitely has the “cool factor!”  Beautiful art and a compelling story will get you everywhere!

3: New Avengers #23

Let the aftermath commence! Best Avengers book that doesn’t really star any “Avengers.” Really, this book should’ve been call Illuminati, but who cares, it’s AWESOME!

2: Manifest Destiny #9

I can’t go on about this book enough, so I won’t say much more than YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!

1: Batman and Robin #34

The Robin Rises arc has me glued to my tablet! Some of the best Batman you can find right now, IMO!

What books are you eagerly anticipating?
