The stack of comics this week contains more DC books than any other company. The big news of the week was DC has the top 6 spots on Diamond’s top ten for October. Let’s see what they are presenting this week for our reading pleasure.
Phil Hester and Brian Churilla’s fantasy series continues this week. Heaven’s enforcer hunts for demon blood and the secret of his origins.
Both of the DC books I am most looking forward to reading this week involve Batman. First is the conclusion of Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin #6 “Revenge of the Red Hood”. In this episode, Red Hood reveals his identity to Batman. All signs are pointing to Jason Todd as the Hood but I want to see if Morrison pulls a surprise on us.
The one I will read first is the Batman/Doc Savage teamup. This is the prologue to Brian Azzarello and Rags Morales First Wave mini-series. In this noir universe, Doc hears of a vigilante named Batman who uses his 45s to bring justice. It should be a great meeting between two classic characters.
Dynamite’s top book of the week is the new issue of The Black Terror. Originally set up as a 4 issue mini-series, it’s success has led to a new ongoing series. How can you go wrong with the Alex Ross cover?
Marvel has 3 books I am anxious to read. DNA has a new cosmic title about the Imperial Guard. Any time they are doing a cosmic book, I am there.
This one might surprise some members of the Revolution. Dark X-Men has my interest because of the creative team. I really like Paul Cornell and Leonard Kirk. This creative team was a favorite of mine on the Captain Britain series.
Number 3 on my list is Strange #1. Mark Waid is one of the best of the current writers. He is guiding Stephen Strange through a gauntlet of magical menaces. His only hope rests in the hands of his new apprentice.
