New Comic Releases for Wednesday 9/21/11

10) Star Wars Jedi The Dark Side #5 of 5 (Dark Horse Entertainment)
Writer: Scott Allie, Artist: Mahmud Asrar

The Final issue in this mini series, I have come to actually enjoy the adventures of Qui-Gon Jin beyond what little I have come to know of the character from the dreadful Episode One flick. Sad to see this series go but I have high hopes for big action and a nice send-off that hopefully leaves the door open for Scott Allie to come back and tell us some more!




9) Avengers #17 (Marvel Comics)
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis, Artist: John Romita Jr.

Hawkeye gets it in! Well, the cover sure does imply that. Fear Itself is still going strong and the end cannot come soon enough despite some solid stories in tie-ins such this current series arc. If the internets are to be believed then I am one of the very few Hawkeye fans out there and seeing a new turn in this character’s fictional life has been long overdue since what we have seen since his return has just been reactions to other events (with one big exception during Dark Reign).




8 ) Green Lantern Corps #1 (DC Comics)
Writer: Peter J. Tomasi, Artist: Fernando Pasarin

I want to see Tomasi take more of a leading roll in this series rather than seemingly following along with Johns’ grand vision and there is nothing better than a new #1 to give this idea a chance. I have no idea what to expect with this series like many of the other new DC #1’s but I will always give The Corps a chance.




7) George R.R. Martin’s A Game Of Thrones #1 (Dynamite Entertainment)
Writers: George R.R. Martin & Daniel Abraham, Artist: Tommy Patterson

I know nothing of this franchise beyond what I have seen on HBO but that is reason alone for me to give my money to Dynamite just to hold me over until the new season begins. Dynamite has proven track record of delivering amazing adaptions and I expect this to be no different. Look for what worked in the show to be found here as well as hopefully a little something different to give it a unique voice.




6) Star Trek #1 (IDW Publishing)
Writer: Mike Johnson, Artist: Stephen Molnar

Building off of the Abrams reboot universe, this series is something that I hope gives both longtime and new fans something to enjoy as we explore the fresh universe in advance of the second film. Hopefully we will see a synchronization between the two mediums rather than an adaption or something that does not officially count in the film’s mythos.




5) Batman #1 (DC Comics)
Writer: Scott Snyder, Artist: Greg Capullo

Rich kid’s parents die leaving him billions and he DOESN’T blow it all on cocaine and strippers? Welcome to Gotham! Just kidding. But seriously, Scott Snyder, I hope that you can deliver the beat-down of the week in this series. I know this book is #5 on my list but that is a precaution. My expectations for this are high!




4) X-Men Schism #4 of 5 (Marvel Comics)
Writer: Jason Aaron, Artist: Alan Davis

Cyclops and Wolverine throwdown as evil little kids make the humans throw all the robots they have at the mutant race. I know that this all ends with the upcoming X-Men event that has all of the teams choose one side or another but I really want to know what causes this. Here is to hopefully seeing that cause in this issue.




3) Marvel Universe Vs Wolverine #4 of 4 (Marvel Comics)
Writer: Jonathan Maberry, Artist: Laurence Campbell

What can I say? Maberry has delivered a hit that deserves more praise that it is currently receiving. This is the final issue of the prequel series to his previous Marvel Universe vs The Punisher (in store now!!!) so we should see a little something of how that world came to be. I really hope this is not the end but the second series in at least a trilogy. Sad to see this go :”(




2) Red Hood And The Outlaws #1 (DC Comics)
Writer: Scott Lobdell, Artist: Kenneth Rocafort

Jason Todd is leading a band of outlaws! I LOVE JT. Not kidding. I got into DC right when he returned and was instantly hooked. Scott Lobdell is the writer on this so I am a little worried since almost every writer with the exception of Winnick has not given this character a proper portrayal but this is one of those characters where I read it for that and not the creative team behind it.




1) Ultimate Comics X-Men #1 (Marvel Comics)
Writer: Nick Spencer, Artist: Paco Medina

After a long absence, the Ultimate version of the X-Men are back! Now that the world is aware that mutants are in fact a byproduct of American scientific engineering and not natural evolution expect the feces to hit the bladed rotational device. This is my pick of the week over so many amazing titles because of the creative team behind it. Spencer is an alright bloke I guess but his comics game is tight. I trust this guy as a creative mind to deliver something entertaining.
