On The Radar: Comic Book Coming Attractions 03/05/14

Radar

In this feature I’ll highlight the upcoming comics that I’m looking forward to the most, the ones that are On My Radar:

Forever Evil #6
Forever Evil #6 (of 7)

Creative Team

Geoff Johns and David Finch
Solicitation
“The final fate of Nightwing! The most unlikely of allies have set the Crime Syndicate in their sights – and they’re playing for keeps while the life of a hero hangs in the balance! Plus, the identity of the mysterious man in the hood is finally revealed!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Ever since the Crime Syndicate surfaced there has been one major question: who is their hooded prisoner? I’ve seen many a theory thrown around but finally learning this individual’s identity has me so excited. On the other hand, learning the final fate of Nightwing has me filled with dread and I hold out hope that they don’t kill off this great character. I’ll be on pins and needles…

Green Arrow #29
Green Arrow #29
Creative Team
Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino
Solicitation

“‘The Outsiders War’ part 3! In the latest chapter of this game-changing epic, Green Arrow tries to take the fight to The Outsiders – but he’s badly outnumbered, and things are about to go from bad to worse! How can Ollie possibly survive?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Green Arrow by Lemire and Sorrentino is simply awesome. If you’ve been reading this series you know what I mean, if you aren’t you owe it to yourself to start. Better yet, track down the start of their run. You’ll thank me. Regardless if you are a fan or a soon-to-be fan, the next epic chapter awaits us!

Quantum & Woody: Goat #0
Quantum & Woody Goat #0 (Regular Fowler Cover)
Creative Team
James Asmus and Tom Fowler
Solicitation
“Are heroes born or are they bred? Tom Fowler returns to QUANTUM AND WOODY for the thrilling and tragic life story of Vincent Van Goat! Behold! A hero is born! A hero rises! We’re gonna level with you–you’re going to need to read this issue! Excitement and laughs and all that! Major repercussions for Quantum and Woody! Yes, seriously! Buy the issue and then see if we weren’t kidding!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
An entire issue starring a goat. Need I really say more?

Uncanny X-Men #18
Uncanny X-Men #18
Creative Team
Brian Michael Bendis and Marco Rudy
Solicitation
“Cyclops finds himself in serious trouble. Who’s got Scott Summers at gunpoint?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The cover immediately grabs me. Who is holding that gun? Why are they threatening Cyclops? What do they hope to accomplish? Enticing question after enticing question compels me to check this issue out immediately.

Wolverine and the X-Men #1
Wolverine and the X-Men #1
Creative Team
Jason Latour and Mahmud A. Asrar
Solicitation
“WELCOME TO THE JEAN GREY SCHOOL OF HIGHER LEARNING! The ALL NEW MARVEL NOW smash hit series schools with Jason Latour (WINTER SOLDIER) and Mahmud Asrar (X-MEN) leading the charge with drama, action and homework(?)! World-famous X-Men Wolverine, Storm, and a star-studded faculty must educate the next generation all-powerful, but inexperienced mutants! But with their own lives steeped in deadly enemies and personal crises, how can the X-Men guide and educate–let alone defend–the school? At the Jean Grey School, you never know who will enroll…or who will lead the class! And what mysterious organization waits in the shadows to destroy Wolverine’s mutant sanctuary? These questions and more are answered in the All-New Marvel Now sure-to-be-smash, WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
It is an all-new era for this series after just last week saw the old era end. As with any new series or new creative team there is that air of uncertainty. Whereas I’ve never read anything from Latour, I’m quite familiar and am a fan of Asrar’s work ever since his Dynamo 5 days. They have quite a ways to go if they want to top Jason Aaron though.

    • I’m on the fence about New Warriors #2. The first issue was okay for me but if the second issue has something real special in it I might be inclined to pick it up.
