COMING UP NEXT with Martinez – 9/17

From it’s long journey through the badlands, it has returned to free it’s people
from the horrifying fate that is, not knowing what to buy on Wednesday….


A look at what our resident opinionated blogger type, Martinez (Pie-Cast) has to say about this week’s upcoming releases!

This Week’s Picks of the Pulls:


Avengers #35 by Hickman, Cheung, Weaver, Bradshaw & Medina

An issue packed with so many creators that the byline could only fit their last names. At least that’s what it seems like to me. In any case, Avengers #35 looks like a good jumping-on point if you’ve been off the Avengers train for a while. I’m more curious about the Cap, Iron Man and Thor changes. I’m assuming we’ll see some of that in this issue. This was the cover that spoiled the identity of the new Captain America after all. The book’s solicitation promises a look into what will happening in the Marvel U eight months from now, so I’m guessing this is something Marvel fans will want to pick up.


Blue Estate by Viktor Kalvachev, Kosta Yanev, Andrew Osborn et al.

This Eisner-nominated story looks over the top and gritty, just the way I like it. The story follows a woman as she tries to leave a life which mixes her up with mobsters and action-stars in the city of angels. This series was originally a 12 issue mini-series, with each issue featuring a different artist. I didn’t follow the series by issue, but the wait might have been worth it since this hardcover comes with a lot of extra content which is pretty awesome.


The New Teen Titans Vol. 1 by Marv Wolfman and George Perez

Most of us have read these issues at some point. They’re classics. However, if by some chance you haven’t, I recommend that you pick up this new edition of the first eight issues of Titans. Heck, I recommend you pick these up even if you have read them. These issues haven’t been published in a new edition in a very long time, and getting your hands on them is difficult and pricey.


 Uncanny X-Men #26 by Brian Michael Bendis and Kris Anka

The fallout from the reading of Xavier’s will continues. Honestly, I don’t know where I stand on the whole thing just yet. I’m not sure if I’m OK with what’s been happening in X-Men lately, but I can’t stop reading. DAMN YOU BENDIS!! He keeps reeling me in even though a part of me is telling me to stop. Also: I dislike Cyclops.
