John, Migs, and Alex brave a rainstorm to bring you a special episode of Tres Komikeros. THE LIST is our compilation of 100 comic recommendations we think you guys should read. Now. And in this initial installment, we bring you the first ten items.
It’s another big week in comics and Prejudged! is here to shed some light on a few of them.
SECRET AVENGERS #1
Written by: Ed Brubaker
Art by: Mike Deodato
Cover by: Marco Djurdjevic
Marvel’s Heroic Age is in full swing with this week seeing the debut of Steve Rogers’ Secret Avengers. Moon Knight, Black Widow, Nova, War Machine, Beast, and Valkyrie. I don’t recall an Avengers team as badass as this. With Brubaker and Deodato on board, now it’s the heroes’ turn start breaking some heads. Although I hope Deodato doesn’t give War Machine “ass armor” like he did for the Iron Patriot.
MYSTERY SOCIETY #1
Written by: Steve Niles
Art by: Fiona Staples
Cover by: Ashley Wood
If you’re a sucker for underground cults and such, you might want to jump onto this new series by acclaimed horror writer Steve Niles. Based on the solicitations, the Mystery Society are Nick Hammond and Anastasia Collins, who like to spend their time and money infiltrating secret bases like Area 51. I’ve never read anything that mashed up Horror with Espionage before, and Mystery Society should be interesting.
GREEN HORNET #4
Written by: Kevin Smith
Art by: Jonathan Lau
Cover by: Alex Ross
This title has been surprisingly good. It’s good that Kevin Smith turned the Green Hornet and Kato into legacy characters. Female Kato is a very nice touch too. The artwork by Jonathan Lau is solid and captures the mood of Green Hornet’s world. Anyone who was a fan of the original TV series should definitely pick this up. Also, if you can, grab the one with the J. Scott Campbell cover.
POWER GIRL #12
Written by: Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti
Art by : Amanda Conner
Cover by: Amanda Conner
Here it is. The last issue of Power Girl for Palmiotti, Gray, and Conner. It’s very sad to see this team leave this title, especially Amanda Conner’s art. I really suggest that DC should collect this entire run into one big hardbound edition, complete with Palmiotti and Gray’s script and Conner’s sketches.
So, that’s it for this week’s Prejudged! See you next week, True Believers!
