By: Chris "DOC" Bushley
(A weekly quick pick of the five titles that should reside at the top of your pull list. In no particular order!)
I do the research, you reap the reward! Before you head out to your favorite shop today, be sure to add these books to your list of goodies. Forget that apple a day nonsense, this "DOC's" prescription to good health starts with these top five titles of the week!
1. Secret Service #1: Mark Millar's second new series of the year launches today! If that's not enough to get you to your Local Comic Shop, legendary artist Dave Gibbons is on art chores! Plus, Mark Hamill dies! Yeah, I thought that would get you moving!
2. Suicide Squad #8: A new story arch begins here, and after the cataclysmic ending to the "Hunt For Harley Quinn" storyline — the team is rattled! Adam Glass creates one hell of a book every month and it's a perfect time to hop on the runaway train!
3. Green Lantern #8: The Indigo Tribe may be the keepers of compassion, but they sure have a strange way of showing it! Sinestro and Hal are tortured because they will not embrace the empathy bestowed upon them. And what exactly does Abin Sur have to do with all of this? Only Geoff Johns knows for sure!
4. Uncanny X-Men #10: Unit has escaped his prison on Peak, S.W.O.R.D.'s intergalactic jail, and he wants to bring peace to the universe. Too bad he likes to see how things work internally so he can understand them better -- especially earthlings! The Avengers guest star to help take down all the baddies Unit released, right before they draw a line against the X-Men themselves!
5. Lobster Johnson: The Burning Hand #4 (of 5): It's up to the Lobster's crew to take down evil incarnate — The Black Flame! But how can a few mere mortals survive against such a diabolical creature? Find out in this pulp style horror story that will astound you!
