Dave’s Weekly Comic Book Recommendations

surrogates_flesn_and_bone_cover_sm_lgIt looks like Comic Con broke this week’s comics, because there is a whole LOT of nothing to read this week.

Sure, I suppose you could find reason to get Detective Comics #855, because it was (quite honestly) the best book to come out last month.  I don’t think  you’ll get a better schooling in comic book design sense than reading this book.

Then there is the new trade paperback of the Eisner-award winning Best New Series Invincible Iron Man: World’s Most Wanted, but if you know what’s good for you you already have these single issues. Also, congrats to Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca on their win for that series.

Really,  however, you should just buy The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone, which is a prequel to the original series, that the movie (starring Bruce Willis) is based on.  Don’t know anything about this comic or movie? Check out our coverage.  

Though if you really think about it and are willing to try new things, there’s probably something this week for you. If you want to see for yourself Midtown Comics has a great listing of what comes out this week. As always we care about what you read, so let us know what you liked/didn’t like from this week’s or any week’s comics in the comments.

Happy reading!

    You’re not kidding David. Whole lot of nothing. The Pull List is not full of high scorers so far.
