Comics Picks For 03.09.2014

With DC Comics’ Future’s End event kicking off last Wednesday, this was a great week for reading since I got through the comics pile faster than I’d believed I could. And I even managed to read a graphic novel!

Anyway, the surprise hits of this week were Action Comics: Future’s End #1 and Batwing: Future’s End #1 from DC Comics, Death of Wolverine #1 from Marvel Comics and Dr. Mirage #1 from Valiant Comics. The surprise flops of the week were Ex-Con #1 and Red Sonja: The Black Tower #1 from Dynamite Entertainment and Aquaman: Future’s End #1 from DC Comics. The others were more or less all great, such as The Phantom Stranger: Future’s End #1, Green Arrow: Future’s End #1, Black Widow #10 or even Angel & Faith Season 10 #6. And of course, can’t forget Ron Marz and Mike Choi’s Witchblade Volume 2, which was a right cracking read!

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.
