  • The Old Guard #3
  • X-Men Gold #2
  • Elektra #3

This week, Kitty Pryde leads her own X-men team, Andromache of Scythia leads a band of immortal (-ish) warriors in The Old Guard, and the beautifully redesigned Elektra kicks butt while wearing actual clothing.  We are women – hear us roar!

  • Bitch Planet #10
  • The Flash #21
  • Kill Or Be Killed #8
  • Man-Thing #3 (of 5)
  • The Old Guard #3
  • Star Wars: Darth Maul #3 (of 5)
  • X-Men Gold #2
  • X-O Manowar #2

Definitely ready for this week. Though, I’m so far behind from last week… we’ll see how far I get.

Kill or Be Killed can keep on coming. This arc has been super interesting. Seeing things from Kira’s perspective last month was incredible. I’m way too excited about where this book is going. Brubaker and Philips are killing it. *badumtsh*

Man-Thing has been dumb and fun, can’t complain. R.L. Stine is a goofball, I’ve decided it.

Bitch Planet. HELL. YES. I need this book in my life.

Yes, I’m reading X-O Manowar. The pulp sci-fi feel of this book really hooked me last issue. Nick recommended this to me and I’m definitely on board to give this book at least an arc or so.

And now it’s time to get more X-Men Gold and I just want to wrap my arms around this book and love it to death. Despite the art shit that happened, I am in LOVE with the story of this book. Guggenheim blew me away in #1.

  • Doom Patrol #6
  • Flash #21
  • Hulk #5
  • Kamandi Challenge #4
  • Kill Or Be Killed #8
  • Mother Panic #6
  • WWE #4

A slightly more eclectic list for me this week. The first arc of Doom Patrol concludes, presumably with the team finally all back together. Grant Morrison’s classic run on the Doom Patrol casts a long shadow, but Gerard Way and Nick Derington have done a commendable job tapping into what made those comics great while adding their own unique ideas to the mix. I do think this series took a few issues to really “click”, but overall this has been a great take on the Patrol.

“The Button” crossover continues in Flash #21. I’m still not sure how I feel about Watchmen being formally introduced into DC continuity. However, as a DC nerd I do appreciate some of the arcane references they’ve been sprinkling into this crossover.

I’m still enjoying this new take on Jennifer Walters in Hulk, but I really hope she gets a chance to fully “Hulk up” in this issue: If there’s one thing I want from a Hulk comic, it’s plenty of smashing.
