Picks of the Week: 5/1/13


Cyborg 009: Chapter 000

This one-dollar, sneak peak of the forthcoming Cyborg 009 original graphic novel by Archaia is by far one of the must-read titles on the shelves this week. As a modern adaptation, writers F.J. DeSanto and Bradley Cramp re-imagine Shotaro Ishinomori’s beloved, timeless manga series for a new generation without alienating the past. Marcus To’s illustrations and the luscious colors of Ian Herring will astonish. Pick. This. Up. Now.


Animal Man #20

Fiction mirrors reality as we get to see the reminder of Buddy Baker’s starring film Tights, a film last featured way back in issue 6. As the ending of the movie begins to mirror Buddy’s life after the death of Cliff, one phone call can change everything.   


Action Comics #20

This title lives up to its namesake! Tony S. Daniel’s pencils are as sharp and confident as ever as he shares writer credit with Andy Diggle this issue. As Superman battles an enemy of his own creation, Lex Luthor’s role within the NEW 52 crystallizes. This is a fun superhero book worth checking out. Enjoy!
