The Week Begins

After a comic-less week, we’ve got some really big comics coming this week! Exciting. Though I’m not sure if I can pick any of them up, here’s to hoping I can at least check out one or two.

Invincible #60 *Most Anticipated Comic of the Week*

Written: Robert Kirkman

Art: Ryan Ottley

After last issue my faith has declined a bit…though still I am excited as ever for “the crossover event of the decade” and how it’s all in one single issue. As a fan of Image I’ve got some hopeful characters that want to see. Mostly Shadowhawk and Spawn, Witchblade of course and Savage Dragon no doubt. Though outside of those 4 characters I’m not too worried about everyone else. Well, one other character…I’ve been saying it for months, guess I might as well say it one last time: Atom Eve is going to bite the dust. And knowing Kirkman in the most gruesome way possible. Perhaps even holding a baby and getting shot. Though unlike the Spawn baby incident or other moments in comic history, this is one of the few times I really hope I’m wrong. Though if I am right, at least I’ll not be too pissed. Still about this overall issue, really looking forward to it and have high hopes for it.

Wolverine #70

Written: Mark Millar

Art: Steve McNiven

Another must buy hitting the shelves, damn…after 2 painstaking months of waiting the next chapter is here and I’m clawing at my LCS windows to get it. While I doubt this issue will have too much progression, what with Venom on their tails, I’m still psyched to check it out.

Witchblade #125

Written: Ron Marz

Art: Stjepan Sejic

It finally begins, the epic story of the Witchblade Wars has graced us and I couldn’t be more excited. With such a stellar week this issue falls a bit seeing as it’s just the opener and storylines like this usually are at their best from their second chapter and up. Still, it’s being sold as a good jumping on point for anyone interested. I’ve been reviewing this series since the beginning of the blog back in July of 2008 and I continue to highly recommend it as the best book out there. If you’re even somewhat curious, then do yourself a favor, check it out.

Dark Avengers #3

Written: Brian Bendis

Art: Mike Deodato

After 2 great opening issues I am very excited to see where Bendis takes the Dark Avengers as the title progresses. It’s fairly obvious that most of the team will come through this arc with little to no scratches really. Still it’s only 4 issues which was a great idea on Bendis’ part not to drag it out forever, I look forward to more this month as well as the future of the series. If you’re interested, check it out.

Azrael: Death’s Dark Knight #1

Written: Fabian Nicezia

Art: Frazer Irving

All right, first off as a side note about that cover it’s a shame that Guillem March couldn’t be the artist for this (Though luckily he’ll be doing a new ongoing starting June ,which looks cool) and as to the series, I won’t be picking this up. I’ve been hearing good things about Nicezia, and it seems he’s moved to DC since Cable/Deadpool didn’t work out. It looks cool and I do like the character but I’m not sure, if I hear good things I will for sure check out the collection.

Some cool looking comics coming out this week. If I can’t get out any reviews then I’ll try and do some other posts. Already been cooking up a new “my thoughts on” type post like I used to do a lot. So check sometime in the week for that.
