(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. Harbinger #1: Valiant's second series comes out today, and it surpasses the original series in every way! Great characterization, coupled with a cool premise — makes for one amazing book! Read my full review here!
2. Earth 2 #2: Though we have all seen the hype this book is getting for the sexual orientation of one Alan Scott, this book is bigger than just that! Here we finally see the return of Mr. Terrific, a winged warrior's first appearance to the New 52 and Jay Garrick become the Flash! They might not be the J.S.A. of old — but it's awesome just the same! Read my full review here!
3. Before the Watchmen: Minutemen #1 (of 6): Do I really need to explain why this is on my list?! One of comics "Holy Grails" has a prequel, ya know you're going to get it — if you can find it! 'Nuff said!
4. Fairest #4: This great series from the pages of Fables, continues on with it's amazing retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty story! But will Jonah betray Ali Baba and Briar Rose to the Ice Queen before the tale is even finished? Great book with spectacular art by the one and only Phil Jimenez!
5. The Mighty Thor: Annual #1: So I hear that people are sick of Marvel not doing cosmic correctly anymore. Well, this ones for you! Taking place before The Mighty Thor #1, this tale has Uatu, Scrier, one thousand Thors, one thousand Silver Surfers and the cosmic granddaddy of them all — Galactus! This ones a throw down for the ages, folks!
