Here are my top 3 picks for the week of November 18th.
Starting off with my third pick. This is a second issue of ‘I hate Fairyland’ if you didn’t pick up the first issue I would advise you to do that. This is the first comic that Skottie Young has put out on Image and it is a great refresher.
I HATE FAIRYLAND #2
Does Gert die by the axe of her assassin, Bruud The Brutal? Spoiler: Probably not.
My second pick of the week is keeping it real with Star Wars! I love what Marvel has been doing with Star Wars in the comic world. And now we get to see Vader fighting on his own, with this weeks release of ‘Star Wars: Vader Down #1’ It’s going to be great seeing where Star Wars goes with all of the new cannon coming. Does this comic make ‘Vader’ an even bigger bad ass? Fucking, probably.
STAR WARS: VADER DOWN (2015) #1
When Darth Vader accidentally finds himself facing off against the Rebel Fleet on his own, the rebels will learn the true strength of the Dark Side of the Force! Once Vader crashes on a nearby planet, the Rebellion is willing to risk everything for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to take out one of their biggest enemies! Luke! Vader! Leia! Aphra! Han! Chewie! And all manner of Droid, good and evil!
And my first pick of the week goes to! (drum roll please!) I’m a sucker for a good Batman story, so I’m giving this one up to the return of one of my favorite artist Jim Lee! Now this is a mini series, so that means that Jim Lee won’t be in all of them but it can’t be bad if he put his name on it. This week the first issue of ‘Batman Europa’ where Batman will have to turn to the one person he hates to help him solve the one thing he can’t win.
Co-conceived by Matteo Casali and Brian Azzarello, this 4-issue miniseries event will feature art by top talents over layouts by the incomparable Giuseppe Camuncoli (HELLBLAZER, Dark Wolverine), with the first issue pencilled and inked by none other than Jim Lee!
