Legen-wait-for it-dary Comic Book Highlights of the Week 5/27/09

Cover of the Week: Amazing Spider-Man #595

This cover by Phil Jimenez gives a nice preview of what is going to happen within the issue and story which is something that many covers do not do and instead are just poster covers that have nothing to do with the issue.

Amazing Spider-Man #595 Highlights

Hitting on a couple of girls is a nice way to spend an afternoon in the park.

Wolverine’s comments here definitely deserves a fist pound. Though I am not sure if George Bush thinks that way.

Some nice brotherly bonding between soon-to-be brothers Peter Parker and J. Jonah Jameson Jr.

Nice homage to this Spider-Man cover.

Not a big fan of this ending but it is not what it looks like. Maybe Lily is just retaining water or something.

Green Lantern #41 Highlights

At least the Guardians are finally doing something other than just blaming the Green Lantern Corps members for mistakes that could easily be their fault.

Wonder who John feels safer being/fighting with Fatality or the Orange Corp avatars.

We had to go through a whole issue just to get to this point that honestly could have been a kick butt opening not ending.

Guardians of the Galaxy #14 Highlights

Only if Bug didn’t say that last comment he might have convinced Black Bolt and Medusa to hear the Guardians out. Oh well, can’t blame him for the comment as it would be hard to resist not saying.

Do not mess with Warlock because he is the Goddamn Warlock.

One of the best things about War of Kings is how DnA have really made the even Crystal’s coming out party as she becomes much more open and aggressive with letting her opinions being heard.

The next issue of Guardians of the Galaxy should be one killer brawl especially if the Shi’ar join in since Warlock has the Witch-Mark on him.

Nova #25 Highlight

Finally Richard gets his powers back. Now let see him take on Gladiator. That would be a great fight.

Teen Titans #71 Highlight

The truth hurts doesn’t it Cassie.

Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk #6 Highlight

This series amounted nothing but talking wish it would have ended with both of them fighting it out instead of talking though this was a probably the best scene of the whole mini-series.

Wolverine #72 Highlights

Love Red Skulls trophy room.

The Ebony blade vs Captain America’s shield.

This was just a sick scene. Definitely not the way I thought the fight would end but it was great.

First Cap’s shield and then Iron Man’s armor. The only thing missing was Wolverine using Spider-Man’s web-shooters.

Now it is time to really kick some ass. I don’t think the Hulk Gang knows what they got themselves into.
