Comics Picks For 11.06.2014

This past comics week the preparations for my upcoming marriage swung into full gear and its been a rough week in all, especially since it took me a grand total of five days to read a single novel, which happens extremely rarely, but which I fear might become common over the next few weeks. Still, I managed to catch up on most of my comics last night and early this morning, so it was good.

The surprise hits of this week were Armor Hunters #1 from Valiant Comics, Cyclops #2  from Marvel Comics, and Red City #1 from Image Comics. The surprise flops would be Abe Sapien #13: The Healer #1from Dark Horse Comics, Vampirella: Morning in America #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. Comics that I expected to be great, such as Grimm Fairy Tales Presents #4 from Zenescope Entertainment, Captain Marvel #4 from Marvel Comics, Batgirl #32 from DC Comics and The Royals: Masters of War #5 from Vertigo Comics were truly great reads that made up for an otherwise lackluster week, in the main. Not a whole lot of new stuff from DC either, so I spent time reading up a few of the older issues and worked my way through two graphic novels no less, Dark Horse’ Conan: The Phantoms of The Black Coast and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2: Angela.

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.
