Comics Picks For 21.05.2014

My quest to push my reading habits week after week continued this week when I read 26 comics in all, which includes 23 individual issues and three graphic novels, two of which were larger than normal Fables trades. Those three trades proved to be the difference this week since my reading from the previous week was quite different. Plus, two of the issues I read this past week were from the same series so in the list of comics read, they count as one. Still, I had a ton of fun this week since I read the two (big) Fables trades back-to-back in less than an hour, which is pretty new for me.

The surprise hits of this week would definitely be Savage Wolverine #19 from Marvel and Angel & Faith Season 10 #2 from Dark Horse whereas the surprise flop would be DC’s Justice League #30 (just one this week as it happens). Books that I expected to be good, such as Marvel’s Elektra #2, IDW’s Transformers: Windblade #2, Dark Horse’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #3, and Image’s Velvet #4, managed to deliver on their promise quite well.

Anyway, here’s another edition of “Comics Picks For…”. Full reading list, as always, is available here and all my comics reviews are available here.
