Geekscape Comics: Best Bets for 01/04/17

Wednesday 4th January 2017 by Karson

Happy New Year! After a nice holiday, I’m back and ready to talk comic books with you lovely people. Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Marvel

Mark Waid’s Avengers and Champions series’ have new issues out this week. Both are worth checking out, but neither of them are must-reads. Reminder: Black Widow, another Waid authored title (which had it’s ninth issue released over the holidays), is.

Beta Ray Bill is back in Jason Aaron and RB Silva’s The Unworthy Thor! Aaron tells great mythological tales and Silva’s art is so damn good. If you’re longing for the Thor of old, this one is for you.

The second issue of the new Nova series is out today too, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the first one so I’m looking forward to this.

DC

Justice League vs Suicide Squad was just beginning the last time we chatted, and now we’re a few issues in. What have you thought so far? It hasn’t wowed me much. The Suicide Squad books so far had done a great job of letting me get to know the characters in the Squad, however, the series has never done much to get me to care about Waller who plays a pivotal role in JLvSS. So a little lacking there. The battle we saw in issue 2 was pretty awesome though! Let’s see where issue three takes us.

Superman is about to enter crazy town.

“MULTIPLICITY” part one! The New Super-Man of China has been taken! The Red Son Superman of Earth-30 has been beaten! And who knows what’s happened to Sunshine Superman! Someone is collecting Supermen across the Multiverse-this looks like a job for our Kal-El as he is joined by Justice Incarnate in this multi-Earth epic!

If the Justice League of America Rebirth gets into motion this week with Justice League of America: The Atom Rebirth #1. We also have The Fall and Rise of Captain Atom #1. A character Alan Moore said influenced Doctor Manhattan, so maybe there will be more to this book than meets the eye.

Best Bets? Most excited for? I don’t know, nothing is jumping off the pull list this week. Maybe I’m still in a turkey coma?

What are your pulls?
