Due to no one’s demand for it, I’m going back to this regular feature of comics of interest for the week!
And as usual, let’s start with a number 1, this week from the fine folks at Image I Love Trouble by Kel Symons and Mark Robinson:
In an opening that reminded me a bit of Unbreakable, we meet a more than down on her luck young woman named Felicia Castro. She ends up with a superpower and in the first issue she uses them to settle some scores. The writing has the challenges of exposition as any first issue, but the art in this issue compensates and the result is a kinetic cartoony carnival ride.
And as far as my top pick of the week, that’s easy:
You are reading this, right?
I know some folks still are not into the digital thing for comics so I thought I’d remind you that there is another Superman book out there that isn’t part of the current DC proper world of Supes, and it is quite good.
Also this week is Worlds’ Finest, a book starring two female characters that DC which DC perhaps has realized might be good to market to LADEEZ.
It’s torn superhero costume week at DC!
The last time Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray wrote a mini-series with “bomb” in the title - Time Bomb, I really enjoyed it. So I’m going to give this one a try and it also has art by the great Jerry Ordway. Plus, you know, bombs!
And over to the Marvel side of things, and we start with one of the best comics that you can spend you money on:
It’s Clint and Kate!
I’m trying hard to love Red She-Hulk, this issue may do it:
And that’s it for me. What’s on your list?
