This Week’s New Releases and Recommendations

It’s Wednesday all over again and it’s a good week to be a comics fan of any stripe. Just take a look at what’s coming out this week.

First, I’ve got an overflow of superhero goodness.

WWH #4WORLD WAR HULK #4
I bet you think I’m sick of World War Hulk. I wrote what felt like a bazillion reviews and have now turned into a giant slacker in regards to all things gamma-irradiated. The thing is, WORLD WAR HULK remains incredible. Madison Square Garden turned into a battle arena? Yup. But, seriously, you had me at “puny humans”.

GABCWSGREEN ARROW BLACK CANARY WEDDING SPECIAL #1
Ah, but didn’t we get a Wedding Special last week? It ends up that was just the first issue of Dwayne McDuffie’s run on JUSTICE LEAGUE with strippers in it. Doesn’t matter. It was a great kick-off to what should be a fun year of JLA. This week we get the real deal wedding with some superhero fisticuffs thrown in for good measure. It’s all held together by a humorous script from Judd Winick and great, expressive Amanda Conner artwork. Plus, it has at least three times as many strippers as last week’s JLA Special.

HighwaymenHIGHWAYMEN #4
I could try to stretch and say this is a superhero comic but it’s not. What it is is an awesome action movie in comic form about two over-forty bad-asses protecting a human WMD from the government by driving really fast and shooting a lot of stuff. The art is a little like Quitely, a little like Dillon and the comic is a whole lot like awesome.

What can possibly as good as that, McElhatton?

Phoenix 11PHOENIX VOL 11 TP
The second-to-last part of Osamu Tezuka’s PHOENIX saga, where volume 1 took place at the start of life on Earth, volume 2 in the far future, volume 3 a little further forward in time than volume 1, volume 4 a little bit backwards in time from volume 2… you get the idea, each story inching towards a central, “present day” time zone that was never quite reached. What’s cool is that you never know what you’re going to get, from Running Man-style reality shows where armies of clones are created and then hunted down for the viewer’s pleasure, to a woman who is trapped in a time loop forever seeking redemption even as she heals demons and eventually murders her past/future self. Go on, check out almost any volume of PHOENIX, it’s bound to be a winner.

Tezuka’s pretty hard to argue with. That’s just the tip of the iceberg this week, though. MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS, UMBRELLA ACADEMY, TALES OF THE SINESTRO CORPS: PARALLAX, a sweet new FINDER collection, JLA: HITMAN and (sadly) the last issue of Kirkman’s memorable IRREDEEMABLE ANT-MAN all hit the stands today as well. So enjoy a great week of comics!
