Hello fellow Nerds!
This week I am going to discuss some of the choices because there are a lot of number 1's up there! The first pick All New All Different Avengers is one that I am very excited for. If the amazing cover art wasn't enough to get you I imagine the line up is. The new Thor joins the team and if you aren't sure who it is yet I won't spoil it here. We also get Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales who is Spider-Man now, Nova and Vision, Iron Man, and Sam Wilson's Captain America. This team seems very strong and I can't wait to see all of the different dynamics between the characters. I am curious if this Nova will be the Sam Alexander who was created for the Ultimate Spider Man television series. I think that would be an interesting take. If the line-up doesn't get you interested, Mark Waid helming this series should do it all. If you haven't read his run on Daredevil, do yourself a favor and pick it up. The trades could be found at local comic book stores like the one we go to here in the Elk Grove Sacramento area, Metropolis Comix.
All New Wolverine is actually a very intriguing title. X-23 is one of my favorite Marvel characters and I hope she can take over the mantle of Wolverine and make it interesting, She is his clone so I imagine this series will be amazing. Carnage is also a character I very much like. His recent limited series during the AXIS event was shockingly good. Illuminati is not the same Illuminati that I know and love. The prior team was my favorite Marvel team of all time. This new team is a group of villains. In this series we will see The Hood build a team featuring Titania, Enchantress, Mad Thinker, Thunderball, and Black Ant. The story will focus on this team just trying to survive in the new, different Marvel Universe.
The final number 1 here is the Goddamned. This is Jason Aaron's new independent book through Image Comics. Jason Aaron is a fantastic writer and the story sounds very good. Here is the synopsis they give readers for the story: "Its 1655 years after Eden, and life on Earth has already gone to hell. The world of man is a place of wanton cruelty and wickedness. Prehistoric monsters and stone-age marauders roam the land. Murder and destruction are the rule of the day. Humankind is a failed experiment. This is life before the Flood. The story of man on the verge of his first apocalypse. Welcome to the world of THE GODDAMNED." Guys, CHECK THIS BOOK OUT! I think this could your next Walking Dead / Saga caliber story.
