Comics Picks of the Week 21.08.2013

So, this is a new weekly feature I’m rolling out on the blog. There are so many comics I read week in and week out, that just doing an end-of-the-month list isn’t enough. At least, I think it isn’t.

As a mega-crazy reader, there are so many good things I want to talk about that there just isn’t enough space for all of it. And additionally, I really do want to talk about these comics.

In no particular order, here are all the comics I read last week (a full reading list of 2013 is available here), and my top picks from that list.

Comics Read

  1. Aphrodite IX v2 #4 by Matt Hawkins (Review)
  2. Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore
  3. New 52: Birds of Prey #23 by Christy Marx
  4. New 52: He-man and the Masters of the Universe #5 by Keith Giffen
  5. New 52: Justice League Dark #23 by Jeff Lemire
  6. New 52: Justice League of America’s Vibe #7 by Sterling Gates
  7. New 52: Supergirl #23 by Michael Alan Nelson (Review)
  8. New 52: Superman Unchained #3 by Scott Snyder (Review)
  9. New 52: Trinity of Sin – Pandora #3 by Ray Fawkes
  10. Marvel Now: Young Avengers #6-8 by Keiron Gillen
  11. Marvel Now: X-Men v2 #4 by Brian Wood (Review)
  12. Star Wars: Legacy #1-2 by Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman
  13. The Uncanny X-Men #244 by Chris Claremont

Something to look out for this week: I will be doing a massive Trinity War review on The Founding Fields, alongside fellow reviewer Bane of Kings. I will be covering all six main issues (for the three Justice League comics), as well as all the tie-ins, minus perhaps the Constantine tie-in since I plan to do a review of the entire first volume separately.
