Recommended Reading [16th April 2014]
Uncanny Figure Review brings you a list of our favourite comics from this week, and it’s a great week for comic books…
- Starting off the ‘final act’ of Scott Snyder’s massive origin story, this issue lets us see just how much Riddler has Gotham in his grasp. This issue does an excellent job making us believe Riddler is a very real threat, leaving Gotham in a state you have to see for yourself.
Batman & Wonder Woman #30
- This is the story arc I’ve been waiting for since they killed off Damian Wayne (or Robin for those greener comic readers among you). In pursuit of the Demon’s Head, Ra’s Al Ghul (who seeks to resurrect Damian, and his daughter Talia), Batman teams up with various Justice League members (in this issue, Wonder Woman) to locate the remains of his son before Ra’s can complete his nefarious scheme. The issue has a surprisingly poetic ending, but a thoroughly enjoyable read nonetheless.
Batman Eternal #2
- Finishing this week’s triple-threat of great reads, Snyder’s other, weekly Bat title concentrates exclusively on the very near present, (without revealing too much) the events from the last issue spread across the Bat-family. Seeds are laid for what we already know is coming from a recent interlude issue of the main Batman book and we see a villains New 52 debut… a must read!
American Vampire Second Cycle #2
- If you haven’t been reading American Vampire, I would strongly recommend going back and picking up, or borrowing the trades. It’s a fantastic read, written by the man who is on a roll this week; Scott Snyder. Vampire is pretty much a swear word these days, thanks to the likes of Twilight, but this book is far from that, and this issue follows form as a fantastic read. This issue is genuinely surrounded in mystery and we get a great reveal at the end, you owe it to yourself to read this book, especially if you’re a fan of the horror genre.
Uncanny X-Men #20
- In all honesty, I haven’t been enjoying this book as much as I want to, it’s drawn by my favourite comic book artist; Chris Bachalo, and has great character interaction from Brian M. Bendis, however, this arc has been interesting, and this issue picks up where the last left off. This issue focuses on plots, schemes and trust issues between Cyclop’s team of X-Men, SHIELD and the machinations of the devious Mystique and makes for a very interesting read.
Amazing X-Men #6
- Every now and then, the X-Men have a throw away issue, where somebody has got married, or come back from the dead… this is the latter, but much more fun than usual, as our beloved Nightcrawler is back, things are different with the X-Men since he died (read: Cyclops and Wolverine lead seperate feuding factions) and his complicated family love to poke their nose in. Jason Aaron delivers yet another great issue, which makes me sad, knowing he will be leaving the title shortly.
- The Hulk has saw more relaunches than I’ve had hot dinners (not literally), and the last 3 have explored widely different ideas (Jason Aaron’s Incredible Hulk, Mark Waid’s Indestructible Hulk and this, adjectiveless Hulk). Mark Waid stays on as writer, and the end of Indestructible Hulk we saw Banner shot, and seemingly killed. This issue explains everything we need to about how we’re going to move forward from the death of Bruce Banner and has some moments that really had me cringing (in a good way). Definitely worth a read!
Superior Spider-man #31
- This is it, the last issue, the end of the glorious and actually superior Spider-man. Never has a series took a character of such magnitude and messed with his life in so many ways, we see everything culminate here; who is the Green Goblin? How is Mayor Jameson going to get around his city being overtaken by the Spider-Slayers he commissioned? Will the girls in Peter’s life survive? And how can Peter explain the past few months to the people important to him? The answers start here in what is a fantastic end to an amazing series and without a doubt the comic of the week.
So, what did you think of this weeks comics?
