Comics Picks For 17.09.2014

Well, lightning might not strike twice, but I’ve managed yet another week where I read a ton of comics and also read two graphic novels. Granted, they were both on the shorter side, a bit, but still, 38 single issues AND 2 graphic novels. That is a personal record!

The surprise hits of this week were Alien Legion: Uncivil War #1 from Titan Comics, Godzilla: Cataclysm #2 from IDW Publishing Supergirl: Future’s End #1 from DC Comics, and Edge of Spider-Verse #2 from Marvel Comics. The surprise flops of this week were Original Sin: Thor & Loki #5 and Hulk Annual #1 from Marvel Comics, and Wonder Woman: Future’s End #1 from DC Comics. Of the remaining comics I read, they spanned the spectrum as always, and some that I expected to be really great, such as The Darkness: Rebirth Volume 2, Future’s End #20, Daredevil #8 and The Flash Season Zero #2 were awesome, so I’m quite happy with this week.

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.
