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

Radar

It is time once again to highlight the upcoming comics that I’m looking forward to the most, the ones that are On My Radar:

Avengers #29
Avengers #29
Creative Team

Jonathan Hickman and Salvador Larroca
Solicitation
“WHAT DID HE SEE? The Illuminati, a secret cabal of the Marvel Universe’s greatest minds, was brought together for a single purpose – to protect the world from the threat of multiversal armageddon. But to save our entire universe, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, The Black Panther, The Beast and Black Bolt would have to do the unthinkable.  To protect their secret, they tampered with the memories of Captain America – erasing his knowledge of their terrible acts. But no secret stays buried forever. And Steve Rogers is about to discover the betrayal of his closest allies. With Captain America’s memories restored, the Illuminati’s days are numbered. The clash of the Avengers and New Avengers is upon us. What shocking secrets have Tony Stark and his secret inner circle been keeping?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Back in the beginning arc of New Avengers, Captain America’s fellow Illuminati members betrayed him and wiped his memory. Now the time has come for that to betrayal to be brought to light and I can’t wait to see what Steve’s reaction will be.

Batgirl #31
Batgirl #31
Creative Team
Gail Simone and Fernando Pasarin
Solicitation

“Clandestine meetings, tapped phones, video surveillance – Barbara Gordon is being watched! Who has it in for her, and how can Batgirl investigate without compromising her secret identity?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Besides that absolutely gorgeous cover, the true standout is the looming mystery that this issue presents. Who is this individual spying on her? More importantly, why would someone want to spy on plain old Barbara Gordon? You don’t think this someone knows about her extracurricular activities do you? Very intriguing…

Justice League United #1
Justice League United #1
Creative Team
Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone
Solicitation
“In Canada, the team of Animal Man, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter and Stargirl is joined by Adam Strange to fight an unstoppable forced called the Unimaginable.”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The second issue of “Justice League Canada” is actually the first issue numerically. Don’t ask me why they felt the need to have a zero issue but with that gripe aside I’m eagerly awaiting the new team to form and this issue looks to be the next step towards that happening.

New Avengers #18
New Avengers #18

Creative Team
Jonathan Hickman and Rags Morales
Solicitation
“In all of creation, only one Earth has successfully met and triumphed over each Incursion that has threatened it: the Earth of the heroes of the Great Society! Guess which Earth is on a collision course with ours?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
This issue is the closest we are going to get to an Avengers VS Justice League showdown as our New Avengers squad does battle with some pretty familiar alternate characters. It should be fun to see though this being a Marvel title is there any question of which team will eventually emerge victorious?

Quantum & Woody #10
Quantum & Woody #10 (Cover A - Kano)
Creative Team
James Asmus and Kano
Solicitation
“Quantum and Woody – against the world…or against each other?! Woody always had a weakness for the ladies…and when an old flame lures the goofus into a gang of mad-science super-crooks, Woody flips back to his old lawless ways! Where does this leave Woody’s sweet clone girlfriend? And now it’s up to his own brother Eric, who isn’t that sure he even wants to be a superhero, to bring Woody in! Don’t miss this bro-down for the ages!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
It’s Quantum VS Woody! As we saw at the conclusion of Issue #9, Woody and Quantum are set on a collision course with Quantum hired for protection by the very people who Woody and his old lover are going to rob. Hilarity will most assuredly ensue!
