Looking for something new to read? Here are our Top 3 picks from this week's releases to get you reading!
Writer: Jeff Lemire; Artist: Andrea Sorrentino
Synopsis: Fifty years from now, Logan -- the man who no longer calls himself Wolverine -- will have endured many atrocities: The Marvel Universe's villains will have banded together and rid the world of its heroes. Logan's closest friend, Hawkeye, will have been murdered in cold blood right before his eyes. And driven mad by the same radiation that gave him his superhuman strength, Bruce Banner will have fathered a family of hillbilly Hulks...that eventually went on to slaughter Logan's wife and two children. But now, in the present, Old Man Logan wakes up to discover himself in a world before these atrocities, before the Wasteland. And he's going to seize this opportunity and change history to ensure that his future never comes to pass...
Why We Are Excited: This series spins out from one of the more intriguing War Zones from the Secret Wars crossover, so we are excited to see it continue. Setting it in the current Marvel Universe, we see Logan taking on that ultimate time travelers paradox: If you knew what was to come, could you change it from happening?
Writers: Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson, Chelsea Cain, Scott Allie; Artist: Michael Walsh, Michael Avon Oeming, Tim Sale, Dave Stewart
Synopsis: Best-selling novelist Chelsea Cain writes and Michael Avon Oeming draws the first of three snowbound stories. Then Tim Sale visits Mignola's prehistoric mythology. Plus, in a lead-in to the upcoming issues of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1953, Hellboy explores a haunted mine in the barren wastes of Wyoming.
Why We Are Excited: Mike Mignola recently announced that he would be ending Hellboy in Hell with issue #10 and plans on taking about a year long break from drawing comics. So aside from the upcoming prequel Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: 1953., it doesn't look like we will be getting a lot of Hellboy in the near future. Add in some top name talent to this book and this is a lock for our Top 3 this week.
Writer: Jody Houser; Artist: Francis Portela, Marguerite Sauvage; Cover Artist: Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic
Synopsis: Faith Herbert, the psionically gifted "psiot" known as Zephyr, has been a neglected child, a pawn of the Harbinger Foundation, and a washout with the government superteam called Unity. But now she's taking control of her life and becoming the hero she's always known she can be - complete with a secret identity, a codename, and a cover assignment that routinely throws her into harm's way! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought as she uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy that could destroy human civilization from the inside out! Is Faith out of her depth...or in for her biggest adventure yet!
Why We Are Excited: Faith is to the Valiant Universe what Harley Quinn is to the DC Universe, a lighter hearted take on the super-serious superhero. Faith is one of the VU's most relatable characters. She's a lot like us (comic book nerd) who happens to get powers that she's still trying to figure out. Now she's trying to make it on her own, but it may be harder than all of her comic book knowledge has prepared her for.
