Lots of great books this week. Can you guess what my comic of the week is? Yep, it’s Daredevil #32. This book was amazing, fantastic, and quite the masterpiece on many different levels. From the art to the dialogue, this comic was just right. This is a team of creators that need to be together no matter what. To move them away from each other would be a sin. And with issue #36 ostensibly being the end of this iteration of the series, I may be one sad, sad man. I hope the team stays put. Also, I think I’ve said this before, if you haven’t been reading this series, stop what you’re doing, buy a subscription to Marvel Unlimited, download the app on your iPad, and start from the beginning. This is super hero comics at its best.
Moving on, what writer is hotter than Matt Fraction? With three of his books coming out in two weeks, if you are a fan of his work, you are in good shape. Satellite Sam, while not as great as it was when it first started, continues to be a compelling adult story while Sex Criminals is hot on many levels. Read these now while you can.
Now for the speed round: Wolverine and the X-Men was great as Bendis’ classic event is proving to be one of the best of the year; Superior Team-Up is a good partner to the core series, but not quite up to snuff when compared to Slott’s series; Savage Wolverine is beautiful; Injustice continues to be a sleeper hit; Larfleeze is funny as ever but derivative at times; Superior Carnage is a steaming pile of crap that doesn’t deserve to be purchased for $3.99.
That’s all I got, what did you read this week?
