Welcome again, to this weeks Poyo picks because you all have a problem, you like comics. That’s why you are reading this, well, I hope you are. If not, I wasted a good 5 minutes your time and a bit of my life each week submitting this to Tony to post on his website. So if you do read, post something.. your own picks, a comment to make fun of mine or me.. it doesn’t matter.
So anyways, let’s get on with these picks..
Invincible Iron-Man #7 (Marvel) 3rd Print – It’s gonna have a small circle of Riri’s face claiming it’s her first appearance.. yeah! Heck yeah.. this one is gonna be the bomb! (hopefully you can sense my sarcasm).. Some are gonna go for it but I bet this one is more heavily ordered with a bigger print run. Honestly I’m betting the 2nd print will be the hardest one to find going forward. But to the completists out there on 1st appearance issues, this is for you.
Image #1 Pick
Black Monday Murders #1 (Image) – A new Hickman book. I love Hickman but I hate him when he starts a book then delays it.. hrrrmm… Dying and the Dead?? You promised us this early this year, so where is it Hickman? I’m still loving East of West but I like Dying better.. don’t be pulling some Millar crap Hickman or I’ll cast you out just like I did him. Regardless of my petty ranting, this one is a definite pickup to check out.
Indie Pick of the Week
Black Eyed Kids #5 (Aftershock) – Still going strong, one of the best Indie books currently I think. Check it out if you haven’t don so already.
Now on with Poyo’s pull list, some of my favorite ongoing books I pick up each month.
Spread #15 (Image) – A CHU favorite for sure. Such a great read and I love the art.
Birthright #18 (Image) – Great story, I could see this as a show.
Black Panther #5 (Marvel) – Who doesn’t like Black Panther? One of my all time favorite Marvel characters.
Daredevil #10 (Marvel) – Soule has been doing a great job on this. Garney’s art is spot on as well for Daredevil.
Darth Vader #24 (Marvel) – My all time favorite villain. Of course this is a pick up and read. I’m going to be sad when it ends next issue but I’m sure that’s not the last we see of Vader, I’m sure another volume or story will be created soon enough.
Vision #10 (Marvel) – I’m starting to look like a Marvel fanboy.. oh wait, I am. I still love Marvel, well, a whole lot more than DC. I don’t buy them all but I do think they have superior characters and writers over the other big one, DC. Tom King has been great on this, now he’s writing Batman, so hopefully he can revive some DC titles if he goes beyond Batman.
Ninjak #18 (Valiant) – Such a great read. Valiant needs more credit. Their art is awesome and their writing is superb. Give them a try, most of their titles are awesome.
That’s all folks!
