Wednesday is upon us, and your journey is about to begin. Like the fabled Holy Grail, a shiny new batch of comic books await your discovery…but unfortunately, you cannot purchase them all.
Will you choose wisely – as Indiana Jones did in the Last Crusade – escaping with the coveted treasure, or will you choose poorly, causing the flesh to explode from your bones, leaving nothing but your ash-covered, skeletal remains?
Fear not, noble adventurer – I’m here to help. Here are some of the best comics of the week, and why you should read, bag and board them.
Each and every week, I, “Lawful Neutral” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, I look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of my pull list, grab some comics, and I’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of February 20, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
It is a big week this time and I’m making up for taking last week off. Hey, I get vacations from time to time, but there are just too many books to talk about. We’ve got a couple of high profile first issues, a sad farewell to a classic series, a new issue for my favorite series currently running, and some other stuff. Let’s not waste anymore time, it’s GoD List time!
Nova is one of those cool Marvel Comics cosmic characters that just never gets a fair shake. With Marvel NOW! two of Marvel’s best creators, Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness, are starting a new era for the Nova Corps. The story is still new with Nova #2, so you have time to catch up!
In Nova #1, Sam Alexander finds himself holding a powerful helmet and he met a talking raccoon and green-skinned alien that are part of a super group calling themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy. In issue #2, Sam begins to try and learn about his heritage and just who the Nova Corps is!
Check out these advanced images from Nova #2 here below.
