I haven't exactly slept well in some time so I hope these rundowns don't come out weird.
BUT HEY! COMICS!
Action Comics #901
Sad to see the excellent Luthor arc wrapped up but maybe this Reign of the Doomsdays will pick up now that Paul Cornell's the sole writer handling it. If nothing else, we get the beautiful art of Kenneth Rockafort.
Amazing Spider-Man #662
Part 2 of the Spidey/Avengers Academy team-up! Which means I should probably read Part 1 today.
Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine #6 (OF 6)
Maybe the craziest thing I've ever read by Jason Aaron and good gravy do I love it. So very, very sad to see this end. Huge ideas by Jason, breathtaking art by Adam Kubert, great mix of humor and action. I'm glad Jason and Adam will be working together again on an issue of X-Men: Scism but darn it if I wouldn't just love them to continue doing these balls-out team-ups.
Captain America #618
"Gulag" continues! As does the pre-film transitioning of Steve Rogers back into the role of Captain America.
Detective Comics #877
Someone has misplaced a whale! And a dead person! Batman is on the case. Scott Snyder and Jock give me the only Batman comic I need. (and then Scott adds Gates of Gotham to that just to make me feel extra good)
THE COUNCIL OF DOOM.
Green Arrow #12
The conclusion of the thing with the tree and the guy and the stuff. I hope if this linewide post-Flashpoint reboot ends up being a real thing, we get an Oliver Queen that's actually worth reading. My devotion to the character only stretches so far and the mystery behind the forest and the White Lantern engery in this Brightest Day tie-in was really the only thing keeping me coming back.
Green Lantern #66
Green Lantern Corps #60
Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #10
Gee, guys, I hope that you don't have any more blatant spoilers on your covers because it seems like you've done one better than last time and decided to ship all three Lantern titles in the same week.
Mark Waid's bad guy trying to be a good guy and not always doing a great job of it. (but being totally enjoyable in the process)
Mighty Thor #2
Olivier Coipel draws such pretty pretty things including the Silver Surfer and Galactus.
Onslaught Unleashed #4 (OF 4)
THE FATE OF BUCKY/NOMAD! It's not looking good for poor Rikki. Which is a shame. Convoluted origin or not, she's a fun character with a great costume.
Secret Avengers #13
Nick Spencer continues his short run on the book in this Fear Itself tie-in. I heart Nick Spencer. I heart him a lot.
Secret Warriors #27
The penultimate issue of Jonothan Hickman's deftly exectued Secret Warriors!
The penultimate issue of Spider-Girl--who I'll have more to say about next month. (or in a separate post all her own)
Strange Adventures #1
Vertigo's sci-fi anthology comic by the likes of Denys Cowan, Juan Bobillo, Peter Milligan, Jeff Lemire, Ross Campbell, Paul Cornell and featuring a first look at "Spaceman," the new series by 100 Bullets creators Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.
Uncanny X-Men #537
Kieron Gillen and Terry Dodson's sequel to Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's "Breakworld" story continues. Does Kitty finally regain her tangibility? (the Prelude to Schism comics seem to indicate "Yes." Oops.)
X-Men Legacy #249
More Age of X aftermath! Turns out people don't like when you give them false memories of a life you never had on a world that never existed.
