Weekly Comics Discussion – June 6, 2007

As usual, the complete list is here.

Dark Horse

  • ALIENS VS PREDATOR OMNIBUS VOL 1
  • BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #4 – The top of my reading list. Review this weekend.

DC

  • BIRDS OF PREY #107 – Gail Simone’s run draws to a close before she takes over Wonder Woman.
  • COUNTDOWN 47
  • DETECTIVE COMICS #833
  • NIGHTWING #133
  • OUTSIDERS #48
  • SUPERMAN #663
  • SUPERNATURAL ORIGINS #2 – I’m really tempted, but often let down by tie-in comics, so I haven’t tried it yet.

Dynamite Entertainment

  • BATTLESTAR GALACTICA #10
  • BATTLESTAR GALACTICA CYLON APOCALYPSE #4

Marvel

  • AVENGERS INITIATIVE #3 – This has been a pleasant surprise. I actually care about characters I’ve never seen before this series, which is a good sign. I’m hoping that the rumours about Slott and Wieringo taking over Amazing Spider-Man after JMS leaves are true.
  • BULLET POINTS TP – The JMS alternate Marvel history series.
  • CIVIL WAR IRON MAN TP – An entertaining set including these, these, and this.
  • CIVIL WAR MARVEL UNIVERSE TP – This is the collection of the random one-shots reviewed here, here, here and here.
  • DARK TOWER GUNSLINGER BORN #5 (OF 7)
  • ESSENTIAL SILVER SURFER VOL 2 TP – In my opinion, the only reason to skip out on this is because you plan to get the forthcoming “Fantastic Four / Silver Surfer” combination DVD-ROM with every issue of “Silver Surfer” ever published, as well as all but the most recent issues of “Fantastic Four.” (ie. up to the January 2007 cover date.)
  • IRON MAN #18 – Another pleasant surprise.
  • MARVEL ZOMBIES ARMY OF DARKNESS #4 (OF 5)
  • MS MARVEL #16
  • NEW WARRIORS #1 – This Civil War spinoff is apparantly doing the flipside of the original “Thunderbolts” concept. That was a group of established villains acting like heroes under new identities; this is a group of established heroes acting in violation of the Registration Act under new identities.
  • OMEGA FLIGHT #3 (OF 5)
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #487 – Brubaker just finished the 12 issue “Rise and Fall of the Shi-Ar Empire,” which will be reviewed before the TPB comes out. I can’t wait to see what he follows it up with.

    "Guess the New Warrior!" begins
    My first guess for a New "New Warrior"’s previous identity: I’m betting that the Warrior who took down the Grey Gargoyle is Cassie, formerly of the Young Avengers.

    galactica
    Is anyone reading the galactica comix? I got the issue from free comic book day, but it didn’t get me rushing back to the shop for more. I’m wondering if I should pick up the eventual TPB.

      Due to some sort of shipping error, I missed #10 this week. I’ve read all other issues in all other series, and while I haven’t really been displeased, I also haven’t been terribly thrilled.
