This week I went calm on New Comics. I had a goal of snagging about 4 or 5 books but things did not break that way for me. X-Men #2 sold out at my shop. After flipping through Immortal Hulk 49, I was disappointed with the interior art and stylizing and general layout of the book and ultimately passed on it. With that out the way, lets look at the books I actually picked up!
Spirit of Vengeance: Spirit Rider
Here’s a character I am unfamiliar with and a series I did not hear of prior to its release today. I am a huge Ghost Rider fan and, while I am not sure how it all ties in, I had to go ahead and pick it up!
Today, I rounded up all 5 of my issues so I can start reading that soon. I enjoyed issue #1 and look forward to catching up on my Geiger reading.
As I said, it was a tame week for me. I am a little disappointed I missed out on X-Men #2. However, I still am looking forward to books I picked up! Thanks for reading and have a great day everyone!
A new month, new comics! Tomorrow is Tuesday and with that, new comics are on sell. Here’s some of the comics coming out this week I’ll be looking into!
I have most of the Hickman run from the previous X-Men series. I’ve already picked up issue #1. Issue #2 looks good but I need to read issue 1 to see where I stand. (Very cool cover here though.)
I collected this run more than I read this run. I bought into it in the late teens and early 20s as far as the issue count goes. I finally dropped it after issue 25 following rumors it would end at 25. However, apparently the run is officially ending at issue 50. As Al Ewing will be moving over to the Venom run while Donny Cates will be starting a new Hulk run. With that in mind, I will try to pick up the last two issues.
Geiger #1 was a great read. Once I get Geiger #5 I plan to binge read the series! Geiger is like Fallout meets super heroes. The main character is exposed to nuclear radiation and gains super powers.
This was a run I did not even know existed a few weeks ago. Crush was introduced in the previous run of Teen Titans. She is revealed to be Lobo’s daughter. I am big fan of the Teen Titans. While it seemed like the writers did not know what to do with Crush, as her lesbian identity felt forced and ultimately went nowhere, she always came across as interesting. I’m eager to see how they are handling her character now that her daddy issues get to be on full display.
Miles Morales has been a star in recent years. He was the main Spider-Man in the hit animated movie Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse. Miles also played a minor role in Insomniac’s best selling PS4 game Spiderman before landing another lead role in the PS4/PS5 spin off Spider-Man: Miles Morales. To my understanding, this issue will reprint Ultimate Fallout #4 (His first appearance) and a handful of other stories!
So, that’s my list of books I am interested in picking up! Let me know what books you guys are looking forward to! Thanks so much for reading and have a great day!
