Is It Wednesday Yet?

Thor #620
New comics this week!

On my pull list:
  • Action Comics #898 (DC)
  • Detective Comics #874 (DC)
  • Teen Titans #92 (DC)
  • Thor #620 (Marvel)
Yeah, I don't have much to say about any of these books. They're all kind of mid-story right now, except Detective Comics, which I think is starting a new arc. So if you're not reading it, you might want to jump on. It's currently the best Batman ongoing.

Also noteworthy:
  • The Mission #1 (Image)
  • Term Life GN (Image)
  • Iron Man 2.0 #1 (Marvel)
  • Abyss: Family Issues #1 (of 4) (Red 5)
  • Crossed: Psychopath #1 (of 6) (Avatar)
The Mission is a new mini-series on Marc Guggenheim's "Collider Entertainment," an imprint specifically designed to bring "Hollywood talent" into the world of comics. In this case, the talent is the screenwriting duo behind RED, which was itself based on a comic book, so that's a lot of back and forth between the two entertainment industries. It's the story of a random guy who one day is told that he's been chosen for an important mission "in the battle between good and evil." The premise doesn't do much for me, but with the right execution it could be interesting. Check out the preview, or read an interview with writers Eric and Jon Hoeber.

Term Life is a new graphic novel written by A.J. Lieberman and illustrated by Nick Barrow. I'm not familiar with either of their work, but this looks pretty good. There's an interview and long preview here.

Iron Man 2.0 is a new ongoing series written by Nick Spencer, starring James Rhodes, previously known as War Machine. There was a prologue for this in Iron Man #500, which looked promising.

Abyss: Family Issues is the second volume of Kevin Rubio's creator-owned comic, Abyss, published by Red 5. Art is by Alfonso Ruiz and there's a preview here.

Crossed: Psychopath is another orgy of depravity, gore and perversion by David Lapham. Preview.
