“There are others like you. Edge cases. Living on the fringes, hiding in the shadows…afraid to show their abilities.”
If you had a super power, would you hide it? Would you use it to benefit others or for personal gain? In Uncanny #3 written by Andy Diggle and illustrated by Aaron Campbell, Dominic Weaver begins to realize that no matter what you choose to do with your powers, others will always seek to exploit them, because everything comes with a price tag.
Each and every week, I, “The Famous Cock” Henchman21, and “The Mermaid” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 28, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Since we took last week off, we’re here to drop an extra-sized version of the list this time. Sadly, the list contains one series that is nearly ending, and one series that is going to be significantly changing due to a switch in the creative team. But never fear, we’ve got plenty of other brilliant series to point you towards, including one issue that is a great starting point for one of my favorite titles. So, no time to sleep around, it’s time to wake up to The GoD List!

As kids, we all wanted a superpower…right? Okay, be honest here. That carried through to adulthood, didn’t it? Especially when we go see any of the blockbuster comic-based films that Hollywood has turned (or churned) out in the last decade or two. Well, Uncanny #1 is the story of a guy with just such an ability. What he does with it is less than spectacular, but we all make poor decisions from time to time.
Okay, first off it’s good to know who you’re dealing with here. The guy’s name is Weaver and he’s a con artist. Sure, he’s got the badass ability to siphon the thoughts and knowledge from people that he touches, but he uses it to gamble and cheat people out of their money. Unfortunately for him, this information that he absorbs is very temporary. And he’s started noticing that his power is becoming slightly unreliable, though he has no idea why. But Weaver’s life is about to change. Other folks have taken an interest in him and, luckily, they’ve got pretty good timing. A last minute rescue finds him racing off with no idea what the future holds.
