New Comics Releases for Wednesday 11/2/2011

Comic Wednesday is here and with the start of a new month comes another wave of DC Comics. Three months in is where the stories generally start to pick up so I am pretty excited to see where we are going. Marvel has a few cool offering but IDW is killing it this week with it’s Hasbro Licensed properties with two big releases. All in all it is not the best week for comics I have ever seen but it is far from the worst.

Mario’s Top Ten Picks of the Week!

10) Irredeemable #31 (BOOM! Studios)
STORY BY Mark Waid, ART BY Diego Barreto

In the last issue the leaders of China, Japan, and America came together to release something truly horrible onto the world as a last ditch effort to stop The Plutonian, and in this issue we finally get to see what it is. This series continues to be a great departure from what the traditional superhero comics bring the the table and I love it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9) G.I. JOE #7 (IDW Publishing)
STORY BY Chuck Dixon, ART BY Will Rosado

Oh Snap! The Joes have the Baroness captured in a former Cobra hold out, but with a deadly force of Cobra terror is unleashed and is roaming the grounds who is truly the prisoner? I am really digging the Civil War, it has pumped some new blood into this GI Joe franchise. Also, check out The Baroness’ Loubitons on the cover. CLASSY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8 ) American Vampire #20 (DC Comics/Vertigo)
STORY BY Scott Snyder, ART BY Jordi Bernet

Do you like vampires? What about mid eighteen century cowboys and indians action? No jokes though, this series is the sh*t and Snyder really knows how to deliver the goods in a way that transcends fans of all different genres.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7) Uncanny X-Men #1 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Kieron Gillen, ART BY Carlos Pacheco

The X-Men are back with an all-new number one issue. As Cyclops leads his team to the future Mister Sinister is up to something truly haggard. It has been a LOOOONG time since Sinister has been a major player in comics and I hope that this new jumping on point can deliver on giving him some much appreciated face time to those who were fans of his back from the prominent appearances that he had in the 90’s comics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6) Detective Comics #3 (DC Comics)
STORY BY Tony S. Daniel, ART BY Tony S. Daniel, Ryan Winn

The Joker had his face removed in issue one and issue two put me right to sleep. Lets hope that this “Dollmaker” can bring the goods this issue or the series will be off of my top ten until something meaningful happens.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5) Transformers #29 (IDW Publishing)
STORY BY Mike Costa, ART BY Brendan Cahill

The Death of Optimus Prime is coming and the build-up is making me crave this series more and more until the day comes. I have completely slept on this series until I have heard of this upcoming plot point and that is why it is my Number 5 book of the week!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) Invincible #84 (Image Comics)
STORY BY Robert Kirkam, ART BY Ryan Ottley

Kirkman’s OTHER comics juggernaut is still going strong despite the attention his other book is getting, which is a damn shame too since this is my favorite of the two. Just look at that almost all black cover. You just know something is about to go down!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) Amazing Spider-Man #673 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Dan Slott, ART BY Stefano Caselli

The Spider-Island Epilogue is here! Who the hell is the Scarlet Spider? WIll anyone in Manhattan be screwed out of their insurance coverage over the infection? Will Peter ditch Carly for the obviously better choice in MJ (Who was the break-out character of the event in my opinion)? Read and find out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Shame Itself #1 (Marvel Comics)
STORY BY Various, ART BY Various

Finally! Some humor poking fun at the Marvel Universe and their most recent all encompassing event! Please check this one and done issue out if you like to laugh. Even if you have no clue what they are making fun of. It’ll be cool, even us regular comic readers have no idea what just happened, like Thor died apparently. How was I to know? USA Today did not do a spoiler filled article the day before the issue hit the store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1) Batman Noel Deluxe Edition HC (DC Comics)
STORY AND ART BY Lee Bermejo

This massive hardcover features an original tale depicting what is basically a Batman themed cover of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. I have deeply enjoyed Berjemo’s previous take on Batman and I expect this time around to be no different, especially since he is now preforming the duties on both art and script.
