  • Wonder Woman #1

A small pull this week.  I was not particularly fond of the Wonder Woman Rebirth issue.  Paulo Siqueira’s art just wasn’t for me, so hopefully Liam Sharp’s this week will be more to my taste.  If not, I will be sticking with Lazarus and Black Magick to get my Greg Rucka fix.  DC’s double shipping means following Wonder Woman will cost $6/month – more than I’m willing to spend if it’s not amazing.

  • Cry Havoc #6
  • Judge Dredd #7
  • She Wolf #1
  • Wonder Woman #1

Glad to see Rich Tommaso’s new Image series She Wolf arrives this week. I loved his recent Dark Corridor series, which was a twist on hard-boiled crime fiction. This new series is his take on the “teenage werewolf” genre, and Tommaso seems like the right creator able to make that tired old trope seem fun, and maybe dangerous, again.

Of course, the other werewolf themed comic this week is Cry Havoc, which I have been really enjoying. On the surface, it is a gripping monster story, but there is a much deeper subtext about the power of myth and the importance to storytelling in human history. Each issue slowly explores both of these aspects, making this a very satisfying and rich comic to read.

I didn’t love the recent Wonder Woman Rebirth issue, but I think that’s due to it being a “fill in” so to speak; setting that stage for the ongoing series. Greg Rucka’s work can be incredibly engaging and emotional when he’s invested, and I think Wonder Woman is a character he loves, so this might be a classic run in the making.

  • Archie #9
  • The Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw #11
  • Bitch Planet #8
  • Cry Havoc #6
  • Dept H #3
  • Snowfall #5

Look at all those Image books!

Bitch Planet is back! I don’t think I need to express how excited I am for this book.

Dept. H continues down the road of a good mystery, with the Kindts doing a fantastic job on the art.

Snowfall is very, very weird. I don’t know what is happening or who I should be following closely in the book. Or maybe I’m not seeing the big picture… the long and short is: I’ll see this book through to the end of the arc, but I’m dragging my feet getting there.

Cry Havoc… got real interesting last month. Is this book a mini-series? Did I miss a memo? The story seems to be coming to a fine climax, and I’m not sure what could happen after this next issue. I trust Spurrier and Kelly.
