Comics Picks For 07.05.2014

Another week of more than 20 comics read, and this week I went for something a bit different and tried to read as many of the comics from the Big 2 as I could since I’m a bit behind on that score and needed to catch up. But that wasn’t all of course, since I also got a start on IDW’s Star Trek and finished up Dynamite’s Kings Watch among other titles.

The surprise hit of this week would definitely be Nailbiter #1 from Image Comics and Neverland: Age of Darkness #1 from Zenescope whereas the surprise flops would be Marvel’s Cyclops #1 and DC’s Batman: Eternal #5. No idea what is going on with those titles, although I hope that they both improve. Series that I expected to be good, such as DC’s The Movement #12 and Marvel’s Black Widow, were what I wanted them to be and that pleases me immensely. And Dynamite’s Kings Watch should rate a mention since the series ended on a high with the last two issues. No graphic novels this week, as I was a bit too cramped for time otherwise, but hopefully the new week will be different.

Anyway, here’s another edition of “Comics Picks For…”. Full reading list, as always, is available here and all my comics reviews are available here.
