Another week of books is coming and this week there is a strong selection to go through. Some good indies are out there to read as well as books from the big two. Here is this week pull list.
Conan The Avenger #1
With Brian Wood series ending, Fred Van Lente picks up the mantel of the Barbarian continuing from where the Wood series ended. I have been reading his Archer and Armstrong for a while now and it has been fantastic. I am picking this number one just to see what Van Lente has in store for the beloved Barbarian.
Red Lanterns #30
Red Lanterns has been up and down since I have picked up. Guy leading the Reds initially sounded cool, but after reading a couple of issue with Guy as the Leader I am bit torn of him leading the team. He seems to be a little overwhelmed at times and it has made for some really meh issues. Recently they have tried to make this series interesting with the integration of Supergirl as a Red which has been really fun so far, and now finally Atrocitus is back and he isn’t all too happy to be taken down as the Reds leader.
Image has been on a roll with their books, From ongoing series like Ratqueens, and East of West to their miniseries in Pretty Deadly, it seems like whatever Image throws out is a big success, and Undtertow is another example of Images great run of comics. This series has been one of my favorites this year and I am looking forward to see how the crew gets out of land after being discovered by the humans. One of the years bests minis in my opinion.
The reboot of Daredevil continues, and the first issue was real good. I thought that moving Daredevil from Hell’s Kitchen was a mistake, but after reading issue one I was pleasantly surprised by the issue. I am very intrigued to read how Daredevil will adapt in his new home.
Marvel is bringing back the assassin, and Marvel promises that everything you knew about her will change. I’ll give this a shot just to see what changes Marvel will bring to the character.
