NEW THIS WEEK FROM SOURCE COMICS AND GAMES

INFINITY ENTITY #1


Glad You Asked 

by Lisa

So the In-Store Convention Kick-Off was fun. There are all kinds of new announcements to be excited about, both things coming up in the   comics and cool things like Dark Horse Day, celebrating the publisher’s 30th anniversary. It’ll be June 4th and we’ll be having a real proper shindig because not only do they have a history of making great books we love, but the people who run the company are incredibly kind, generous and supportive of our shop. Here’s to 30 more.

The Avengers: Standoff event that’s going down is doing something that most comic events do not: it’s a coherent story leading in to a relevant plot change in the Marvel Universe! Standoff is the story that will return young Steve Rodgers to the role of Captain America, just in time for the title’s 50th anniversary. What does that mean for Sam Wilson, aka that guy who is currently Captain America? We’ll find out. Speaking of 50ths, Action Comics and Batman both #50 this week and have special issues, just in time for them to segue into Rebirth. And thanks to some of DC’s explanations, I’m encouraging cautious optimism. As Geoff Johns explained last week, the first two phases, the Rebirths of Green Lantern (Darkest Night/Brightest Day) and Flash have been great.
 In things that are not Nth Anniversaries: Samurai #1, Baker Street Peculiars #1, Mars Attacks Occupation #1 and Haunted Mansion #1. It’s just another, jam packed week of comic book goodness again, including three of my favorites: Kennel Block Blues, Howard the Duck and Head Lopper. Stop harshing on Howard: I laugh out loud at every issue. It’s self aware, legitimately funny and She Hulk is technically his secretary but she is NOT about taking directions from him. And I’ve ranted before about Head Lopper, the quarterly from Image that has a tremendous amount of depth, heart and texture. Just because the protagonist is a guy called Head Lopper doesn’t mean he’s one dimensional.
 People always ask me what I’m reading. Every time they do, I go blank and just say “…as much as I can?” so this is my informal pull list for the week, meaning that I really want to and absolutely probably will read these within the next few weeks: 

Adventure Time #50, Baker Street Peculiars #1, Kennel Block Blues #2, Snow Blind #4, Alabaster #4, Harrow County #10, Leaving Megalopolis #3, Action Comics #50, Constantine #10, Detective Comics #50, Gotham Academy #16, Gutter Magic #3, Mars Attacks Occupation #1, HEAD LOPPER #3, Haunted Mansion #1, Howard the Duck #5, Mighty Thor #5, Mocking Bird #1, Ms Marvel #5, Vision #5, Samurai #1. And probably more, too.
