Happy New Comics Wednesday!
Go here for a complete list of comics releasing this week.
What are you getting this week?
- JUSTICE LEAGUE #41
- LEGION OF SUPER HEROES #4
- UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #4
- VALKYRIE JANE FOSTER #8
- FIVE YEARS #8
- MARVELS VOICES #1 – “Inspired by the acclaimed podcast series!” I don’t know anything about this podcast, and now there’s a comic inspired by it? Has anyone listened to this podcast who would like to sell me on it? (Yes, I know I can go listen to it myself, but what’s the fun in that?)
- STAR #1 – I’m always on the lookout for new Marvel or DC characters and Star sounds like something I’d be interested in. Waiting for the trade, though.
- WOLVERINE #1 – Snikt!
- ARCHIE MEETS B-52S #1 – Look, I enjoyed “Love Shack” as much as the next person, but why does this musical group have such staying power in the pop culture zeitgeist?
- DOCTOR TOMORROW #1 – I almost tried out this series.
- GODKILLERS #1 – Same. Maybe waiting for the trade.
- PLOT #1 – And a third almost ran where I might get the trade.
What are some other comics I missed that I should add to my Buy list?
Best comic I read recently
VALKYRIE: JANE FOSTER #7 by Al Ewing, Jason Aaron, Pere Perez, Jesus Aburtov, Joe Sabino, and Mahmood Asrar and Matthew Wilson (cover)
The best Marvel comic you’re not reading continues with the Marvel Medics treating Death herself! The plot is pretty simple (the medics journey to Death’s realm to prevent her from dying and have to face some uncomfortable situations along the way [a la the Hero’s Journey]), but the execution of the scene with the portraits, Jane’s conversation with the Death of Death and her soliloquy as she answers Its question (“Do we need Death?”), and how the final page connected all of what came before was so great.
