Powers #21 – Weekly Comic Pick

Powers #21

A little late coming out (future issues should be better) and definitely not for kids. This was by far my favorite title released this week. I do not want to give too much away, except to say that we learn more about the death of Queen Noire’s husband and a conspiracy heading in an unexpected direction. If you are not picking up this title, you should be. At least, hit my store and pick up the trades. They are worth every penny.

52 Week 29 – Weekly Comic Pick

52 week 29
Why 52 this week? Well my LCS has not received their shipments of the latest Invincible or Walking Dead yet. Nor even Birds of Prey #100. So, of the 5 titles I picked up this week, 52 was the best. We see a what the remaining members of the JSA, including Obsidian, think of Infinity, inc and it’s newest member, Jade. That’s right Jade. A girl with green hair and plant based powers in the Original Jade’s costume. Needless to say, this upsets Alan Scott and Obsidian (father and brother to the original Jade respectively) quite a bit. We also see a bit more of the Mad Scientist plot on Egg Fu’s island. Will Magnus’ pills are finally taken away from him. Instead of a 2-page origina story this week, we get a 2-page epilogue to the Steel/Luthor story. Luthor’s Everyman Powers come with an expiration date. As Steel’s new metal covering has started peeling off on it’s own.

Robin #156 – Weekly Comic Pick

Robin 156 “The High Dive”

More of a quiet and reflective issue this month. But still one of the best issues since One Year Later. We get to see how Robin feels about his life after spending one year trying to get his stuff together. From his feelings of guilt over Cassandra and Dodge, Tim ends up helping a young man on a rooftop preparing to commit suicide. Even better we see him take his own advice as the comic ends when he gives Nightwing a call to talk over the issues in his life.
