Is It Wednesday Yet?

Wolverine and Jubilee #2
New comics this week!

On my pull list:
  • Legion of Super Heroes #10 (DC)
  • Supergirl #61 (DC)
  • Wolverine and Jubilee #2 (Marvel)
  • Soldier Zero #5 (Boom)
I don't remember if I wrote anything about the first issue of Wolverine and Jubilee last month, but it was very, very good. Kathryn Immonen's script and Phil Noto were both lovely. Highly recommended if you can still find a copy. If not, I guess you can wait for the trade. (This is a limited series.) Preview.

Last issue of Supergirl was supposed to be the start of Nick Spencer's story arc, but he ended up leaving the title abruptly (probably to make room in his schedule for Secret Avengers at Marvel), so the issue was co-scripted with James Peaty, who then takes over completely with this issue. It was a good start, though, so we'll see if Peaty can keep the ball rolling or not. Bernard Chang does the art.

Soldier Zero #5 start a new story with the new writing team of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. I bought all the issues of Paul Cornell's run, but I've fallen behind on reading them, so I'll try to catch up before this Wednesday. I feel like DnA are a better match for this title than Cornell was, so I'm looking forward to this one. Javier Pina is still the artist. Preview.

Also noteworthy:
  • Superman/Batman #81 (DC)
  • Captain Wonder 3D (one-shot) (Image)
  • Marvel Girl #1 (Marvel)
  • Silver Surfer #1 (Marvel)
  • Hawkeye: Blindspot #1 (Marvel)
  • Garth Ennis' Jennifer Blood #1 (Dynamite)
Superman/Batman #81 is the start of a new four-part story by writer Cullen Bunn and artist CrissCross. It sounds like a pretty wild story with some fantasy elements, as the cover for a later issue shows Superman holding a blazing sword and Batman riding a dragon! I think I'm going to sit this one out and maybe pick it up in trade, but I'll probably at least flip through it at the store.

In spite of my deep-seated hatred of all things 3D, I confess that Captain Wonder one-shot sounds pretty cool. The 48-page story was written by Brian Haberlin and features art by Phillip Tan. It comes with special 3D glasses.

I'm probably going to pick up Silver Surfer #1, which is the start of a mini-series by Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia. Unlettered preview.

For some reason, Marvel likes to make it incredibly difficult to figure out whether some of their comics solicited as #1's are one-shots, mini-series or ongoings, but I'm going to guess that Marvel Girl is a one-shot, based on the fact that there's no issue for it listed in the March solicits. Preview

Hawkeye: Blindspot is a four-part mini-series and is a follow-up to Widowmaker. Preview.

Garth Ennis' Jennifer Blood, as you might have guessed from the title, is a new series by Garth Ennis. Preview.
