New Comic Releases for 11/16/2011

This comic’s week is a killer on my wallet with a whopping fifty titles on my reading list. With so many great things to point out where can I start off?

Mario’s Top Ten Picks of the Week!

10) Fear Itself #7.3 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Matt Fraction, ART BY Salvador Larocca

Another issue from the event that never seems to end, this third closing chapter of Fear Itself focuses on Iron Man and his newly returned alcoholism. What does Fraction have in-store for us and The Invincible Iron Man series? Pick this up and find out.

 

9) The Boys: Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker #5 (Dynamite Entertainment)
STORY BY Garth Ennis, ART BY Darick Robertson

Butcher’s origin continues to roll along and after last issue’s heartbreaking ending I really want to see what kind of crazy leads him to despise The Homelander. But mainly I want to see just how the hell it all happened with his gal in his sight the whole time. A must read!

 

8 ) Red Hood And The Outlaws #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Scott Lobdell, ART BY Kenneth Rocafort

I am a sucker for Jason Todd stories and despite all of the negative hype that an over-sexed Starfire had wrought it is actually a decent read. So these people no one had ever heard of are being killed by another group of people that no one had ever heard of but the story’s leading trio is here to make sure some bullets are introduced to brian matter.

 

7) Walking Dead #91 (Image Comics)
STORY BY Robert Kirkman, ART BY Charlie Adlard

Rick has learned to turn the other cheek with the help of a gun on his side, but will the truce last? Also, when the hell are we going to see some zombies? Maybe Kirkman should shift the focus to someone else for a few issues and then come back to Rick’s camp just to let the story get fresh again?

 

6) Mass Effect: Invasion #2 (Dark Horse)
STORY BY Mac Walters & John Jackson Miller, ART BY Omar Francia

I had originally looked forward to this series as a way to hold me over until the new game is released in March but it is actually pretty damn good on its own. Without giving away spoilers, fans of the series should really find their way to reading this as an official tale of the ME Universe and some back story on Omega Station.

 

5) Ultimate Comics X-Men #3 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Nick Spencer, ART BY Paco Medina, Juan Vlasco

The gang have set up at the old Morlock Tunnels but the heat is still of for all mutants. And what’s up with Wanda? I hope Quicksilver really knows what he is doing if he isnt behind her craziness.

 

4) Justice League #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Geoff Johns, ART BY Jim Lee

The flashback tale telling us how this version of the Justice League came together is going on with two of the biggest names in the game at the wheel. Sounds like a winning combo right? You would think so but the first issue had me wondering it there was such a thing as TOO much hype when it came to comics. The second issue was much better with the introduction of The Flash but I am looking forward to the big villain reveal that is coming!

 

3) Supergirl #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Michael Green & Mike Johnson, ART BY Mahmud Asrar & Bill Reinhold

Last issue’s fight with Superman was one hell of a read and I cannot wait to see what this issue has. Supergirl is still new to this Earth and apparently the last 20+ years since Krypton exploded she has been asleep so you can imagine here surprise when she is told what Superman tells her.

 

2) Amazing Spider-Man #674 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Dan Slott, ART BY Giuseppe Camuncoli

Now that Spider-Island is over the Sinister Six is taking this as their opportunity to do some evil or other in the name of Doctor Octopus and one of his crazy plans. Want to see how Spidey gets his block handed to him? Tune in for an all new chapter starting here!

 

1) Avengers #19 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Brian Michael Bendis, ART BY Daniel Acuña

The new line-up is revealed as the countdown to the Ultron War begins! Captain America has reshuffled the deck for the prime team to better suit his vision of world security after the whole Serpent fiasco. I love new beginnings as much as the next guy and Bendis has been around the block enough times to switch it up when he sees that it is getting stale. Throw in Norman Osborn and H.A.M.M.E.R. and that in one interesting mix.
