Marvel Pick of the Week:

Cable #1


What Previews said:

(W) James Robinson (A) Carlos Pacheco (CA) Dale Keown

WALK SOFTLY...AND CARRY A BIG GUN! CABLE sees the mighty mutant return on a brand-new mission...with all of time in the balance! When Cable picks up the trail of a threat in the timestream, he sets off on a high-speed, history-spanning chase to save reality as we know it. From prehistory to modern day, whether it's a six-gun duel at high noon or a high-tech sword fight in an ancient land, Cable is the only man who can keep history from unraveling! Rated T+

What Red Shirt Comics says:

Cable has been many things to many writers and even more to the readers. This book has some fun sequences, but the best thing it has is restraint. It very easily could have been a sad rehash of a 90s over the top action book with oversized guns and too many pouches, but much like Dale Keown's wonderful cover art, maturity shines through. Make no mistake, this is definitely the Cable of old, but instead of Dirty Harry from Sudden Impact we get Bill Munny from Unforgiven. For a number one issue, I'd have liked a little extra content. The book goes by a bit too quickly but the solid art is able to drive some emotion, particularly at the start of the third act, and it teases a much longer tale. What's presented here is compelling and certainly provides a good cliffhanger. I'm definitely looking forward to issue 2. But why wait when you can time travel?

"Bodyslide by 1."

DC Pick of the Week:

Wonder Woman Annual #1


What Previews said:

(W) Greg Rucka, Vita Ayala, Michael Moreci, Jackson Lanzing (A) Claire Roe, Stephanie Hans, Collin Kelly, David Lafuente (A/CA) Nicola Scott

WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #1 will feature four tales by a variety of artists and writers including the team behind "Year One"! First, in the days after "Year One," Diana comes face to face with Superman and Batman for the first time in a story by writer Greg Rucka and artist Nicola Scott. Then, Wonder Woman has to go to the nation of Markovia and stop King Shark from being executed for a crime he did not commit in a story by writer Vita Ayala and artist Claire Roe. In the third story, an old ally of Steve Trevor's has summoned Wonder Woman to his village to save it from his cursed monster form. This story is written by Michael Moreci with art by Stephanie Hans. And in this annual's final tale, Wonder Woman assists A.R.G.U.S in bringing down a large Kaiju monster that's on its way to the American coastline but will Wonder Woman change alliances once the monster starts speaking a language she understands? This story is written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing with art by David Lafuente RATED T

What Red Shirt Comics says:

In case you live under a rock, this Saturday is WONDER WOMAN DAY. This annual is a great way to spend part of that day relishing in 4 different takes on the Sensational Diana Prince before you go and check out the new movie. These different stories all highlight two wonderful things: Rebirth's new direction for DC and Wonder Woman's endless compassion, wisdom and strength. Pick this book up, read it and then go hug the real Wonder Woman in your life.

Other Pick of the Week:

Rick and Morty #26


What Previews said:

(W) Kyle Starks (A/CA) CJ Cannon

Rick is the only thing that stands between our world and an alien invasion. Surely he'll do something about it! Or, sh*t, maybe Jerry will.

What Red Shirt Comics says:

Who needs to review Rick and Morty?? If you don't know how awesome this book is then you probably live in a cave and have no idea how awesomer (no, that's not a word) the show is.

"Wow, I really Cronenberged up the whole place, huh Morty? Just a bunch a Cronenbergs walkin' around." - Rick
