Uncanny Figure Review Recommended Reading [12th March 2014]
Superman & Wonder Woman #6
- I’m not a Superman fan, but this book has fantastic artwork, a great array of big villains and does not disappoint. If you have to read one Superman book DC puts out, make it this one.
- Scott Snyder delivers more of his intelligent writing, this time concluding the 2nd arc of Zero Year. It’s very interesting to see earlier parts of Batman, and Gotham’s history play out, even if it is a tiny bit stretched out now.
- The first of Robert Kirkman’s indie barrage this week; after last months gobsmacking conclusion, we are surprised with a very fast paced issue which pleased me more than I was expecting, and of course, desperate to read more
The Walking Dead #123
- This month’s issue has potentially massive repercussions for the future of our beloved band of survivors. Want to know what happens? Pick it up! A must read!.
Avengers Undercover #1
- If you were a fan of Avengers Academy, and the fantastic Avengers Arena, you absolutely must read the follow on title; Avengers Undercover. This has been one of Marvel’s most interesting and refreshing books since the original Young Avengers series.
All New X-Men #24
- I love Bendis’s character interactions, and this issue, the penultimate piece in the Trial of Jean Grey storyline has it in abundance, as well as an escalation in the action which will no doubt come to a galactic head in the next issue!
Mighty Avengers #8
- The most underrated Avengers book on the market. For those who may not realise, but did pick up the great Loki: Agent of Asgard book… this is done by the same writer… if you enjoyed that, I should think you will enjoy this! A fantastic team, utilising an obscure mix of superheroes and a truly great read!
Captain Marvel #1
Was I expecting to enjoy this? Hell no! Did I enjoy this? Hell yes! Captain Marvel in space… where she belongs! If you’re a fan of Marvel’s cosmic stories, this is definitely worth a glance!
