Each week, MK2Fac3 and Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull list, grab some issues and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of June 1, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Apparently, I took all the comics that MK2Fac3 wanted to talk about this week, which I can’t be held responsible for, so you fine readers will get an extra helping of my suggestions. I hope you enjoy.

ISSUES

Criminal: Last of the Innocent #1 (Marvel/Icon – $3.99): I’m very excited that Ed Brubaker and Sean PhillipsCriminal is back with a new story. Criminal is consistently one of the best books on the market and it’s a shame that more people don’t give this book a shot. Every story arc is a self-contained story, but Brubaker also has created a universe where all of the stories exist and long-term readers are rewarded with Easter Eggs showing how the stories are connected. The art by Sean Phillips sets the perfect mood for this series and always impresses. If you’ve been reading Brubaker and Phillips’ Incognito but haven’t been reading Criminal, it’s time to jump on board. And if you haven’t been reading Criminal or Incognito, well then you have a lot of reading to do.

Comic Review: First Wave #1

DC Comics First Wave #1First Wave #1
Written by Brian Azzerello
Art by Rags Morales
Covers by J.G. Jones; Variant by Neal Adams
DC Comics
Price: $3.99; 40 pages
Released date: March 3, 2010

If you read the Doc Savage/Batman special from a few months ago, then you got a sneak peek of what the First Wave miniseries is like (but not much more, that special was pretty slim on story).

The goal of this miniseries is to combine various pulp heroes such as the aforementioned Doc Savage and Batman, as well as The Spirit and the Blackhawks. There are a lot of different characters in First Wave #1, and unfortunately the only one I have much familiarity with, Batman, was not in this issue. That means the whole issue focuses on who Doc Savage and The Spirit are, and that’s where this issue fails. I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I don’t know much about Doc Savage, and unfortunately, I don’t know much more after this issue, and I don’t really care to. I generally enjoy the writing of Brian Azzarello, or at least I enjoyed his writing on 100 Bullets, but there’s just not much to write home about this one. The dialog is fine, if uninspired, but the biggest problem is that I have no connection to these characters and this issue does nothing to foster a connection with them. If you don’t know the characters already, you won’t know them any better after this issue.

Comic Review: 100 Bullets Vol. 11 TPB

100 Bullets Vol. 11100 Bullets Vol. 11: Once Upon a Crime TPB
Written by Brian Azzarello
Art by Eduardo Risso
Cover by Dave Johnson
DC Comics/Vertigo
Cover Price $12.99; On sale: Aug 2007

100 Bullets remains one of the most intriguing and thought provoking series being published today. The series started as a simple morality play, but has transformed itself into a deep mystery series, with a heavy film noir feel. As new characters have been introduced the mystery of the series has gotten deeper and more intricate. The only problem is that the mystery has gone on for maybe too long, and the series may have gotten too far away from its initial premise. The newest trade doesn’t help much, as one of the big plot points of the whole series is examined and explained, but the plot mostly just turns its wheels, and a big character death is made less important by the surrounding events.

You’ve probably heard of the high concept of the series before: a mysterious stranger finds people and offers them the chance for revenge by presenting them with a briefcase holding evidence against the object of their revenge, and a gun with 100 untraceable bullets. The series has grown so far beyond that however, that the briefcase is only given very short mentions in this volume. As the series has gone one, it’s become more involved with a dangerous group known as the Minutemen, and their masters the Trust. This volume finally explains the big secret of why the Trust tried to get rid of the Minutemen, and what they did in retaliation. It brings to light some of the biggest mysteries from the beginning of the series.
