On The Radar: Comic Book Coming Attractions 09/03/14


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:

Death of Wolverine #1
Death Of Wolverine #1 (of 4)
Creative Team
Charles Soule and Steve McNiven
“IT’S THE BEGINNING OF THE END – 3 MONTHS TO DIE ENDS HERE! The beginning of the end is now here … THE DEATH OF WOLVERINE! THREE MONTHS TO DIE, the loss of Wolverine’s healing factor–all led to this, the single most important X-Men event of the decade. Logan has spent over a century being the best there is at what he does…but even the best fade away eventually. Over the years, Logan has been a warrior, a hero, a renegade, a samurai, a teacher-and so much more. But now, the greatest X-Men hero will play a role he’s never played before in this special weekly event brought to you by industry superstars Charles Soule and Steve McNiven.”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Yeah, yeah Marvel. We get it. Wolverine is dying. Originally I wasn’t going to pick up this mini-series but then I saw that McNiven would be handling the art. That right there sold me as I think he is fantastic. Add that to what could possibly be a well-written storyline thanks to Soule and you have a series that could surprise.

Detective Comics: Futures End #1
Detective Comics Futures End #1 (3-D Motion Ed)
Creative Team
Francis Manapul, Brian Buccellato, and Scott Hepburn

“Batman takes his war on crime to the next level, but he needs the help of his greatest ally – The Riddler?!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The Riddler and Batman…teaming-up? This I have to see! I’m already imagining the possibilities and those possibilities have me mighty excited indeed.

Original Sin #8
Original Sin #8 (of 8)
Creative Team

Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato
“The Final Judgment!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The conclusion of Original Sin has arrived and with it comes the revelation of who killed the Watcher. With this murder mystery wrapping up, I’m on the edge of my seat to discover the killer’s identity and motivation. I sure hope it isn’t a disappointment…

Rocket Raccoon #3
Rocket Raccoon #3
Creative Team

Skottie Young
“Everyone’s favorite pistol-packin’ procyon* finally finds himself face-to-face with the intergalactic imposter. It’s macho ado about everything as Macho Gomez guest-stars and the Ex-Terminators are hot on Rocket’s tail! *Procyon is the scientific term for raccoon, obviously.”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
This series is just plain fun. Humorous, quirky, and gorgeous art are its staples and with the release of the third issue I expect more of the same. This title is a breath of fresh air every time it comes out and for that I am very thankful.

Superior Foes of Spider-Man #15
Superior Foes Of Spider-Man #15
Creative Team

Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber
“Still not CANCELLED! GANG WAR begins here! You know it’s a big deal because we put it in caps! Everyone gets in a big fight over the head of Silvio Silvermane. Lives are lost, feelings are hurt, and car keys get misplaced!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The team is back together but this reunion is anything but harmonious for all involved. My #1 Marvel series continues to chug along though the end of the road is sadly in sight. Despite this fact it just makes me cherish each and every issue that much more.

  1. My most anticipated comic of the week is between She Hulk (because I’ve loved every issue so far), Uncanny X-Men and Death of Wolverine 1 (not that I dislike Wolverine, but I’m looking forward to a break from him and Charles Soule has yet to disappoint me).
    Kind of a big week for me. For Marvel, All New X-Factor, Black Widow, Death of Wolverine, Rocket Raccoon, Legendary Star Lord, She Hulk and Uncanny X-Men. I’m also picking up Blood Queen 4 and Vampirella 4.
    I’m likely not picking up any of the Future’s End issues, because I’m kind of tired of DC’s yearly September gimmicks.

    • “Not that I dislike Wolverine, but I’m looking forward to a break from him and Charles Soule has yet to disappoint me.”
      It will be interesting to see how long they will leave him dead. My call: he’s back by June 2015.

      “I’m likely not picking up any of the Future’s End issues, because I’m kind of tired of DC’s yearly September gimmicks.”
      My LCS had a great deal if you ordered the entire lot so I am definitely down. I’m a sucker for those 3D covers…

      Thanks for sharing your pull-list. It is much appreciated! Have a great New Comic Book Day. 🙂
