Each and every week, I, “Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Henchman21, and “Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Punk!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of September 25, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
I have decided to mix it up a little this week, and as such, instead of my usual three or so books I have nine new issues to check out. There’s a ton great issues out this week, and with all of the books listed, there’s something for everyone. Take a look, go to a store, and buy yourself some good comics, because good comics make me happy and they make you happy. So let’s all get happy with The GoD List!
Mind MGMT #15 (Dark Horse Comics – $3.99) The third story arc continues as sides are chosen in the war to decide who will control the psychic warriors of the MGMT. This is a stand-alone issue focusing on hero/villain/victim Henry Lyme, and promises to explain a lot about his motivations and what exactly is going on in the series.
Gambit #17 (Marvel Comics – $2.99) Officially the last issue. Sadness. For more James Asmus, read Quantum and Woody from Valiant Comics.
Empowered Special #5: Nine Beers with Ninjette (Dark Horse Comics – $3.99) Beer. Ninjas. Hot women. Action. Beer. This may be the perfect comic. If you’ve never read a volume of Adam Warren’s Empowered, check out this one shot to get a taste of the series, even it’s not actually drawn by Warren (although he does provide the cover and some bonus art). What you do get is art by Takeshi Miyazawa (Runaways), which is always amazing.
Avengers #20 (Marvel Comics – $3.99) Infinity continues. It’s Thanos versus the Inhumans while the Avengers fight in space. This feels like the classic Kree/Skrull War.
East of West #6 (Image Comics – $3.50) Best new series of the year. Hickman’s mix of wild west, science fiction and the apocalypse are just the kind of crazy he excels at. First trade is out now.
Revival #14 (Image Comics – $2.99) This series is billed as a rural noir, and it lives up to that description. Tim Seeley and Mike Norton have created a series with tons of mysteries and a wide cast of interesting characters.
Saga #14 (Image Comics – $2.99) You know you’re going to buy it. At least you didn’t have to wait six months for this one.
Sex Criminals #1 (Image Comics – $3.50) I don’t know much about this one beyond what the title tells me so I’m guessing there’s going to be criminals and some sex. This is the new series from Matt Fraction, so if you’re enjoying his Hawkeye run, this should be one to pick up.
Justice League #23.4 (DC Comics – $3.99) Villain’s Month wraps up this week with the final batch of issues focusing on those nasty characters that try to take down your favorite heroes. This issue gives background on who is causing the whole Forever Evil event, so this will certainly be at least one tie-in issue that actually ties-in.
