Captain's Picks 5.10.2017


Marvel Pick of the Week:

Silver Surfer #11

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Dan Slott (A/CA) Mike Allred

• He used to be Warrior One, the ultimate soldier. Then he lost a fight with the Silver Surfer and was stripped of his rank. Now he's upped his game and is back for vengeance as WARRIOR ZERO! • It's a cosmic throwdown for the ages! And when it's over...Silver Surfer and Dawn's lives will never be the same again. Not an idle boast or bombastic hyperbole. This issue profoundly changes this entire series. DON'T MISS THIS ONE. Rated T+

What Red Shirt Comics says:

Dan Slott seems to be at his best on this book. Whatever you think of his Spider-Man stuff (I dig it), it's as though he was born to write this book with Allred as his partner. This is destiny.

DC Pick of the Week:

Bug! The Adventures of Forager

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Lee Allred (A/CA) Michael Allred

An all-new Young Animal miniseries begins! Forager is just one of the Hive before he breaks out of his cocoon and finds himself in a mysterious house in an unknown realm. There he meets all kinds of strange creatures: a ghostly girl, a talking teddy bear and otherworldly weirdos that have literally jumped out of his worst nightmares. But these interdimensional oddballs are nothing compared to the evil General Electric, who is on the hunt for a reality-bending metal that could alter the fabric of life itself. To stay one step ahead of him and preserve the multiverse, Forager must travel through alternate dimensions to seek the metal and, hopefully, catch up with that cagey stuffed bear. If he does it, will he finally be able to distinguish himself as a New God? DC's Young Animal celebrates Jack Kirby's centenary with this new six-issue miniseries-and who better to tackle this task than the Eisner Award-winning Allred clan! Featuring scripts by Lee Allred (BATMAN '66), art by Michael Allred (Silver Surfer) and colors by Laura Allred (Lady Killer), BUG! is truly a family affair. MATURE READERS

What Red Shirt Comics says:

Mike Allred takes two slots this week with Silver Surfer and now Bug. You've seen his Batman 66 covers all over DC and now he lands his own book. I don't know how he's so prolific and so consistently good. It's rare to see mini-series these days but what a fantastic vehicle for Allred.

Other Pick of the Week:

Eternal Warrior: Awakening #1

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Robert Venditti (A) Renato Guedes (CA) Robert Gill

It is a time before civilization... On the brink of carving out victory in the most violent battle of his life, Gilad Anni-Padda suffers a devastating injury. He awakens weeks later in a strange land, nursed back to health but with no memory of his past. A tribe has shown him compassion in an age of cruelty, and he will return their gift in kind. Now the real violence will begin... New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps.) and acclaimed artist Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Reborn) lead a celebration of the Eternal Warrior's 25th anniversary here with the second of four standalone specials honoring the most famous Valiant tales ever told!

What Red Shirt Comics says:

While not the "biggest" names to work on a Valiant title lately, this lives up to the brand. They are laser focused on resurrecting their original 90s properties, distilling them to the best aspects of what made them interesting in the first place and then finding great talent to produce great stories.

Other Pick of the Week:

Low #16

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Danny Luckert

Adrian is plagued by ghastly waking nightmares. To understand and possibly treat these awful visions, Adrian reluctantly agrees to past life regression hypnotherapy. As his consciousness is cast back through time, Adrian witnesses a scene of horrific debauchery and diabolism. Waking, he is more unsettled than before, and with good reason-something has followed him back. Adrian descends into a world of occult conspiracy, mystery, reincarnation, and insanity from which there is no escape. Presented by CULLEN BUNN (Harrow County, The Sixth Gun, The Empty Man), DANNY LUCKERT (Haunted), and MARIE ENGER (Pistolwhip, 2 Sisters), REGRESSION is a tale of supernatural terror and intrigue unlike any horror comic you've ever experienced.

What Red Shirt Comics says:

One of the new masters of Horror Comics is back with a new excuse to sleep with the lights on. A decidedly different book visually and tonally from his Harrow County, Cullen Bunn proves that he knows Horror. This book is RIGHT up my alley, as I dig body horror and the occult. This touches on both quite nicely. Only weak points on this book are Marie Enger, with letters and colors. Colors are a little overly simplistic and far too warm and bright for the level of darkness of the book with these strange blocks and lines under the color that are a little distracting. But overall a solid 1st issue into a depraved horror story.
