Each week, MK2Fac3 and Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesnâ€™t? So, letâ€™s take a look into the depths of their pull list, grab some issues and weâ€™ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of May 11, 2011. Single issues and trades, theyâ€™re all here.
Sorry guys and gals, itâ€™s an all DC week for me with an emphasis on Bat this week. I try really hard to bring in indie books for this feature, and if you want that make sure to check out Northlanders, but sometimes it just has to be Gotham. So, if you donâ€™t like Batman, a.) whatâ€™s wrong with you? and b.) skip down to Henchmanâ€™s Marvel love fest!
Batgirl #21 (DC Comics – $2.99): Batgirl is a phenomenon. It consistently hits on all cylinders, so thereâ€™s nothing not to look forward to. For 21 issues, Bryan Q. Miller has not disappointed with his scripts on this book, and while I did not prefer the artist on the past couple of issues, the story has been strong, cute, funny, and action packed. And this issue, and I know this for sure because Iâ€™ve seen the previews, features the return of the amazing Dustin Nguyen to the title, and his work on the title is breathtaking. I mean, the cover shown here is probably going to be my cover of the year. Iâ€™m really looking forward to this issue, and donâ€™t be surprised when I have the next few issues of my pull list, as well. Deal with it. Or buy the issues!
