Must read comics of the week
Alex + Ada #12
Check out one of the best comics of last year (at least in my opinion) this year.
I can’t help but continue to bring up Batman as long as he is fighting The Joker.
Dying and the Dead #1
Jonathan Hickman gets his indie thing going on after issues on top of issues of Avengers epics. Of course, it is dense as hell. A death at a wedding. A fifty year old secret. A man gets a chance to save his dying wife. A lost tribe is reborn. Hickman at his best likes to string disparate events together.
All ages comics don’t come around quite as often as they used to. Everything seems to be at least Teen nowadays. This one-shot tale stars a kid reminsent of the heroes of ET or Flight of the Navigator, who goes on a mysterious adventure when he finds an otherworldly object.
Ok, Axis was a big damn disappointment. Considering how absolutely fantastic Uncanny X-Force was, I have been following Rick Remender’s throughline that he started there. Axis is not the grand scheme I was hoping for, but I am really loving this roster. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver working together and on the side of angels again. Brother Voodoo (or Doctor Voodoo, I can’t remember which) back in the spotlight. And Sabretooth turned good guy as the new “Wolverine.”
