Comics Picks For 13.08.2014

This past week was a bit of a “getting back on track” week, though I didn’t do even half as many reviews as I wanted to. Mostly because of traveling and what not, but the vacation is most assuredly over and so things should indeed be getting back to normal. And what better way to get back than read 30 comics in a week? Or rather, 25 comics in 3 days?

The surprise hits of this week were Godzilla: Cataclysm #1 from IDW Publishing, Hexed #1 from Boom Studios, Grimm Fairy Tales: Realm Knights, and Grimm Fairy Tales: Inferno: Rings of Hell #1 and Grimm Fairy Tales: Oz: Age of Darkness from Zenescope Entertainment and New Suicide Squad #2 from DC Comics. The surprise flop of the week would be Hulk #5 from Marvel where Gerry Duggan is now the writer and took the title in a really strange direction, and Batman #34 where the title was even more disappointing than it has been in a while, more so than the usual of late! Once again, no graphic novels, mostly because I didn’t read most of these comics until like Sunday night, so there just wasn’t enough time for me.

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.
