DC

4086886-sucoverSuperman Unchained #8

Written by: Scott Snyder

Art by: Jim Lee

Penultimate issue of what has been a fantastic series that has unfortunately been tainted by delays. Despite this it takes nothing away from the quality of both the writing and the art. There is so much still to find out in these final two issues that I can’t contain the excitement. I really hope we get some more detail about Wraith as he still seems kind of sketchy, and I just can’t wait for some great looking action scenes. So excited!!

 

 

MARVEL

EDGESV2014001-DC11-LR-89248Edge of Spider-Verse #1

Written by: David Hine & Fabrice Sapolsky

Art by: Richard Isanove

This week sees the “real” kick off of the Multiverse spanning event (not including the Superior intro) of Spider-Verse. David Hine is back at the helm for the Great Depression version of the web slinger, which can only mean that this book will be good. The solicits have indicated that Spider-Man Noir, will be entangled in the current 2014 events, so also expect to see some timey wimey stuff going on as well.

 

 

 

INDIE

STK649665Wild’s End #1 (of 6)

Written by: Dan Abnett

Art by: I.N.J. Culbard

Publisher: BOOM!

WOW, is anybody else excited for this? It has the making of a great mini-series. It has been described as War of the World meeting animals, sound fun? Well it is! This is a journey of survival, one with great laughs and a really interesting premise where a 1930s rural England community find that they have been invaded by Aliens. This really is an issue not to miss and we cant urge you more to pick it up, you won’t be disappointed.

 

SPECIAL MENTION

annihilatorAnnihilator #1

Written by: Grant Morrison

Art by: Frazer Irving

Publisher: Legendary Comics

This really deserves a special mention this week. It has one of the strongest creative teams I have seen on a book in a while. Not only is it a Grant Morrison book, but it has Frazer Irving’s art, and anyone that has seen him do Uncanny X-Men recently will know that this book is going to look amazing. As usual we can expect a complex story from Morrison, but the actual premise sounds really intriguing as we find a screenwriter trying to finish a script when he gets a visit from the main character declaring that the deadline is tied to the fate of the universe. How awesome does that sound?

Which books are you looking forward to this Wednesday, let us know in the comments……
