Dave’s Weekly Comic Book Recommendations

doompatrol01If last week was a bust, this week certainly isn’t. There is a ton of new comics to look forward to this week.

Doom Patrol #1 hits stands this week with stories by Keith Geffen, J.M. DeMatteis, Kevin Maguire and Matthew Clark. Frankly, I think its next to impossible to top Arnold Drake or Grant Morrison and their runs on the books, but I do think this first issue is a worth a shot.

My second recommendation comes is the softcover release of Joe Hill’s Eisner nominated series Locke & Key.  I hear nothing but awesome things about this book, so I am going to pick up this trade paperback. Next, from Image Comics, we finally have the trade of Jonathan Hickman’s Pax Romana. About a time-traveling crew of super soldiers out to save Christianity.

If you’ve read Hickman’s The Nightly News, than you already know that his design sensibility in regards to books where he handles every aspect of the production is nothing short of ground-breaking. There is also the critically acclaimed Chew, which I have not read but definitely really looking forward.

My final recommendation is highly milked “World’s Most Wanted” arc of Invincible Iron Man. I think this has gone on for something like eight parts now or more and it does feel like its run for a long time. However, I’m totally fine with it because its extremely compelling and has, by far, been my pick of the week every time a new issue comes out.

As always, we here at The Flickcast care about what you read, so with that in mind leave us a message letting us know what you liked or didn’t like in this week’s stack. For a better idea of what comes out this week check out Midtown Comics.
