New Comics Releases for Wednesday 11/9/2011

It all begins here (again) as the future direction of Marvel is finally unveiled in the much advertised Point One one-shot book. Aside from that, the rest of the week is pretty “meh” with a few gems here and there to keep it interesting.

 

Mario’s Top Ten Picks of the Week

10) MAGNETO: NOT A HERO #1 of 4 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Skottie Young, ART BY Clay Mann

My all-time favorite villain gets another mini-series, this time courtesy of first time writer Skottie Young. I am not really concerned on who writes the book as much as I am with the characters involved but if his writing is as good as his art then we shall be in safe hands. Plus, look at the title of the series. Not A Hero? Hopefully that is a preview of what we will see inside!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9) BATGIRL #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Gail Simone, ART BY Ardian Syaf, Vicente Cifuentes

Nightwing is such a Dick 8)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8 ) PUNISHERMAX #19 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Jason Aaron, ART BY Steve Dillon

All of the players on the field are closing around Fisk and I can’t wait to see him meet his demise in the most glorious way. Not since Gustavo Fring have I both cheered and booed a story’s villain that was so cunning, conniving, and charismatic all while keeping an air of humanity about him. Aaron, I bow down to your excellence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7) UNCANNY X-FORCE #17 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Rick Remender, ART BY Jerome Opena

Archangel is coming close to bringing hell on Earth and the team is all but defeated. I sense that Wolverine is going to maim a bro or two in this issue to balance the scales. I am appreciating the use of Age of Apocalypse characters (although Ice Man being evil suddenly through me for a loop) to fill in for characters that have already been dispatched in the regular Marvel Universe, as well as the appearance of Holocaust in the 616. This story arc has definitely been satisfactory on the action that was promised, i only hope that the momentum continues in this issue and onto the next story.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6) BATMAN AND ROBIN #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Peter Tomasi, ART BY Pat Gleason

BATMAN AND ROBIN!!!!!! That’s all I need to sell this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5) GREEN LANTERN #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Geoff Johns, ART BY Doug Mahnke

Sinestro shows up on Earth and schools Hal on how to use the ring to rescue people in peril? My, how the people of Earth in the DCU are forgetful. With the assault on the Yellow Lantern stronghold of Korugar (Sinestro’s old crew AND home planet) coming up I hope to see this series capture that spark that I have not been feeling lately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) TERMINATOR ROBOCOP KILL HUMAN #4 of 4 (Dynamite Entertainment)
STORY BY Rob Williams, ART BY P.J. Holden

I do not want to see this series end! Dynamite, you better bring Williams and Holden back for round two. The last issue showed Murphy rescuing The Connors from the dreaded T-1000 in an elaborate set-up that only experienced fans of how time travel works will understand. I am curious to see how this explosive series ends but I really hope it is more of a BANG than a fizzle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #4 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Brian Michael Bendis, ART BY Sara Pichelli

The last issue ended with Miles getting the news that Peter Parker was just shot on the Queensboro Bridge, so I really hope we see him put on the costume (or that makeshift one we saw in Ultimate Fallout) sometime soon. Pichelli’s english may not be the tightest but she more than makes up for that with her art work, and Bendis is Bendis. Much like a comic book writing Jay Z, he has been around forever and if you don’t dig him by this point you are just a hater (just kidding).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) PIGS #3 (Image Comics)
STORY BY NATE COSBY & BEN McCOOL, ART BY BRENO TEMURA

The next generation of terrorism is here, and apparently it has always been there waiting for the right moment to strike. This series is such a highly detailed look at a world where the Cold War rages on that I am kind of suspicious on what Cosby and McCool are really up to. Pick this issue up (and the first to for that matter), you will thank me later. Oh, and Amanda Connor’s cover is pretty slick, huh?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1) POINT ONE #1 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Brian Michael Bendis, Jeph Loeb, Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction , David Lapham , Fred Van Lente , and Christopher Yost, ART BY Ed McGuinness, Bryan Hitch, Terry Dodson, Roberto De La Torre , Ryan Stegman , and Javier Pulido

So what does 2012 have in store for Marvel? Check out this one book to get the scoop. One of the reason that I love these larger titles comprised of short stories is that it is kind of a sampler platter for new readers and a preview of new tales t come for long time fans. While it is NOT necessary to read this book I highly suggest that you do so when something comes back around over the next few months you will know the full story of the “Who’s” and “Why’s” involved.
