Seven new books on my list this Wednesday and five of them are first issues Dark Horse, Image, and the “All-New Marvel Now” line.
- FOREVER EVIL #6 - Feels like a long time since issue #5 and with Justice League moving away from the Owlman/Nightwing story in recent issues I find myself very anxious for what comes next. The cover and solicit suggest it’s nothing good.
- MAGNETO #1 - I’m thoroughly enjoying Brian Bendis’ X-Men books, but I’m not sure Magneto (or Cyclops for that matter) needs a solo series at the moment. I haven’t read much of Cullen Bunn’s work but I do recall enjoying Gabriel Hernandez Walta‘s art during Age of X and Curse of the Mutants. This is definitely worth a look.
- MOOK KNIGHT #1 - I overlooked the “All-New” Moon Knight when I first saw Marvel’s latest wave of new titles until someone pointed it out as a possible reddit/r/rcomicbooks “Pull of the Week” for early 2014. I like the character and the creative team of Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey, and I want this to be great.
- STARLIGHT #1 - Just noticed this on the shipping schedule on Monday and while I’m not the biggest Mark Millar fan it deserves a look.
- UNCANNY X-MEN #18 - I don’t know anything about artist Marco Rudy but the cover to this issue is pretty great. The interiors shown in the preview pages suggest a unique style.
- VEIL #1 - I’m enjoying Greg Rucka‘s Lazarus series to the point where I cannot pass up another new title with him at the helm.
- WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 - When it was all said and done, I found myself disappointed with Jason Aaron’s previous volume of this series. There are only a handful of issues I genuinely enjoyed as things usually ran a bit too silly for my tastes. I regularly read all of the X-titles, but it’s going to take a lot from Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar’s first issue to keep me coming back.
Weekly comic books are a big part of my life and I regularly post what I’ll be picking up each Wednesday along with cover artwork and previews courtesy of Comixology’s Pull List app.
