An overwhelming amount of comics come out every Wednesday. Unless you're Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne, odds are your eyes are bigger than your bank account. Narrowing down your pull list is by no measure an easy feat. Luckily for you, we're here to help. We reviewed this week's list of new releases and managed to pick out 5 comics that are likely worth your hard earned cash.
Will you be getting all or these or do you have a different set of essential comics this week?
It's time for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's next chapter in 'Death of the Family.' These two are a match made in Gotham for The Dark Knight and you're severely missing out if you're not following along.
Just look at that first page of the preview! I am legitimately creeped out by how well Capullo can illustrate Joker's twisted new face.== TEASER ==
FANTASTIC FOUR #2
Easily one of the most promising Marvel NOW! titles, the second issue will dive into Reed Richards trying to keep his true agenda hidden from his family as they leave time and space. Matt Fraction's light hearted and sharp writing makes this a series you've gotta check out.
Check out CBR for the full preview.
It's a brand new start for Slade Wilson as Justin Jordan (TEAM 7, SHADOWMAN) replaces Rob Liefeld. According to the solicit, a "long dead memory" from Deathstroke's past will return looking for revenge. DC's deadliest mercenary sure could use a fresh start, so hopefully Jordan's the man for the job.
Be sure to check out IGN for the complete preview.
CABLE AND X-FORCE #1
Cable's back and leading a whole new X-Force. Unfortunately for them, the Uncanny Avengers wants to bring them down after Cable and his crew are found at the scene of an attack at a corporation... and it just so happens that the company's CEO has strong anti-mutant views.
IDW presents a brand new series written by Chris Ryall (ZOMBIES vs. ROBOTS) and illustrated by Sam Kieth (THE MAXX). This new comic takes you to a futuristic city in Japan where creatures (the Hollows) consume souls in the city. Above the chaos, a group lives safe and sound in tree-cities, but it sounds like they won't be out of the mess for long.
