Sounded Good On Paper

DCBS Shipment III

1. Angel: After the Fall #4 – The mind bending crazy ass ending to issue three shot this series directly to the stop of my stack, and there it will stay until the quality declines or they fail to live up to the giant story potential they have set up.


2. Mighty Avengers #9 – The Mighty Avengers vs. Doctor Doom. I mean, what else do you need? Probably some Skrully stuff somewhere in there too.


3. Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite #6 – The finale to the first arc of the most surprisingly completely awesome book of the past year. I mean, this stuff is great. I really didn’t have a reason to think that the lead singer of My Chemical Romance could put out a quality book, but I’ve been proven wrong.


4. The Immortal Iron Fist: Orson Randall and the Green Fist of Death – A one shot based on a past story of the Golden Age Iron Fist. Everything about the work on Iron Fist has been outstanding, and this should be no different.


5. The Order #8 – Only three left. This seems to draw the Black Dahlias back into the equation, so hopefully there’s a nice conclusion to that arc before/in issue 10.


6. Captain America #35 – I love the way that this book just seems so much more real than the rest of the Marvel U books. If I want crazy ass superheroes, I can read the Avengers. But economic unrest? Political intrigue? Give me a huge dose of Cap, please.


7. Thor #6 – Nothing has been upsetting about this run so far. Plus, we’ve got female Loki! And more Asgardians to be discovered! I believe this is Coipel’s last issue, which is a shame, but I’ve enjoyed the hell out of this.


8. Cable & Deadpool #50 – The final issue! Deadpool! Dinosaurs with Venom Symbiotes! The Mighty Avengers! Breaking the fourth wall! More exclamation points!


9. Hulk #2 – The first issue was pretty good, but not blow away amazing. I still dig the whole idea of it, so I’m hoping we continue with a bit more of the awesomeness.


10. Incredible Hercules #114 – It’s a bit amazing how good this book still is despite the complete change to the main character. Hopefully people realize this, as I know a lot of folks dropped this after the changeover.


11.World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound #3 – The better of the two Aftersmash minis, this has been a lot of fun so far. I dig the Warbound as characters, so more of them is no bad thing.


12. World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control #2 – I still don’t know what this mini is really designed to accomplish, but the first issue was fun enough.


13. Justice Society of America #13 – I don’t understand how I could have loved the first eight issues of this series so much and at the same time have it lose me so fast. I actively don’t care. Hell, I haven’t even read issue 12 yet. Thankfully, this is my last issue. Maybe I’ll actually read it at some point.
