Comic Picks of the Week (March 26, 2014)

Wondering what books are hitting the comic shelves tomorrow?  Well, as always, there are quite a few, but which will prove to be a worthy read?  I’m going with four titles this week!

Blackout #1, Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3, Origin II #4, and The Superior Spider-Man #30.





First introduced in 2013’s Dark Horse Presents #24, Blackout is the story of Scott Travers.  He has discovered a suit that lets him move through the world both unseen and untouchable within a shadow dimension.  But at what price and where did this mysterious suit come from?  Seems like a tale worthy of a read.


My second selection needs little explanation.  If you haven’t watched Firefly or Serenity, then you should start there.  Although admittedly, it boggles the mind that such could be the case.  Once you’ve done that, grab the prior two issues of this series as well.  Serenity: Leaves on the Wind continues the story of the best crew in the ‘verse about nine months after the events of the feature film.  There are also two one-shot stories out there by Dark Horse that you can hunt down.  “You can’t take the sky from me.”


Next up is Origin II.  First of all, the issue is packed with Adam Kubert artwork; which, in and of itself, is worth the price of admission.  Second of all, you’ve got more of Wolverine’s backstory penned beautifully by Kieron Gillen.  Still not sold?  How about I mention Sabretooth and Sinister are involved as well.  Give it a shot.  You won’t be disappointed.


Last, but by no means least is The Superior Spider-Man #30.  This is part four of the Goblin Nation Arc and everything has certainly come to a head.  Marvel is teasing the issue saying “Once this happens, it CANNOT be undone!”  Once What Happens?!?!  Guess there’s only one way to find out…


Great Stories are everywhere!
