Oh! Hey! Fancy meeting you here. Me? Well, I was just about to wade through this week’s upcoming comic book covers. Care to join me? What’s that?… Yes, I am well aware of how big a nerd I am. Now, come! Sit down as I tell you about Jeph Loeb’s new title…
Ultimate Comics X #1, cover by Art Adams:
Very little is known about this ominous little title from Mr. Loeb. All we know is what we can gather from mere images like this, where we spot a young teen with bonelike knives protruding from in between his knuckles. Also we see that he may not be the friendliest among the young men in campus. What strikes me as a mite odd though is that this boy’s backpack looks awfully bulgy for someone who doesn’t look like he knows what to do with a textbook. Indeed, we know very little of what to expect from this new series, but what we do know is that art from Art always looks awesome. Not unlike the art on…
God Complex #3, cover by Michael Avon Oeming:
This new series has been off to a good start, with a somewhat classic tale of mythic proportions. It’s not too outrageous to picture the Gods of Olympus as Corporate Executives, and in God Complex, Mr. Oeming showcases such concepts.

Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3, cover by Greg Horn:
Do not fret, little one, for try as they may, DC has not made this cover Un-Prejudged!able. We have only been deprived of a preview of another image of Wonder Woman as a scantily-clad Star Sapphire (Redundant? Perhaps.) There is a simple Prejudged!ing formula to apply in these situations; Greg Rucka (Great Writer) + Nicola Scott (Great Artist) = Great Issue.
So, there, lies before you, a trio of comic books, Prejudged!
P.S. If this week’s article seems a bit off to you to, don’t worry. It’s just that I’ve been playing massive amounts of Super Metroid (Yes, the SNES game) and it’s apparently done some damage. I’ll have the game beat before next week’s Prejudged! (probably) and everything will be back to normal.
