On The Radar: Comic Book Coming Attractions 09/24/14


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:

Amazing Spider-Man #1.5
Amazing Spider-Man #1.5
Creative Team
Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos
“THE CLIMACTIC CONCLUSION OF ‘LEARNING TO CRAWL!’ We all know what Uncle Ben told Peter about power and responsibility, but there were some secrets he kept from Peter . . . Discover Clash’s fate that kept him secret all these years!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The final issue of the flashback arc brings us the answer of what happened to Clash. Why has the villain never resurfaced after all these years? How will Peter beat this foe that is seemingly smarter than him? And what are these secrets of Uncle Ben’s? These are three very enticing questions that will be answered right here.

Booster Gold: Futures End #1
Booster Gold Futures End #1 (3-D Motion Ed)

Dan Jurgens and Others

“Trapped out of time on a world that defies reason, Booster Gold struggles to escape the fate that has held him and so many forgotten heroes captive!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
It is pretty simple: this issue features one of my Top 5 DC comic characters in the form of Booster Gold. I don’t need to know anything else but that!

Ghostbusters #20
Ghostbusters #20
Creative Team

Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening
“THE FINAL ISSUE OF GHOSTBUSTERS! Mass Hysteria comes to an end and the Ghostbusters discover the price of driving Tiamat from the city, county, and state of New York! But just because the Big Bad is beaten, it doesn’t mean psychokinetic shenanigans are on the wane–there’s always another job on deck for the boys (and girls!) in grey! Don’t miss the bombastically chaotic conclusion to IDW’s ghoulishly ground-breaking Ghostbusters run! ”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Since 2011, Burnham and Schoening have continued to impress me with their collective effort but sadly the time has come to bid adieu to IDW’s ongoing Ghostbusters series. I expect them to hold nothing back with their last effort, a fact which could see this issue be the very best of the week’s offerings. Thank you Burnham and Schoening, thank you!

Harley Quinn: Futures End #1
Harley Quinn Futures End #1 (3-D Motion Ed)
Creative Team

Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Chad Hardin
“Harley and The Joker make it legal at last! Follow the happy couple to their secret honeymoon spot, where it’s literally till death do they part!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Something that will never occur in the DCU proper will happen in this issue as Harley and Mister J tie the knot. Anytime these two appear in a book together we get sparks and drama so the honeymoon should not disappoint.

Secret Avengers #8
Secret Avengers #8
Creative Team

Ales Kot and Michael Walsh
“‘M.O.D.O.K. SUPREME EXTRAVAGANZA’ M.O.D.O.K.’S ORIGIN STORY. YOU HEARD RIGHT. How do you know what we tell you here is true? You don’t. But you’re into it. Why? Because we love you. And it shows. Disco? Yes. Abandonment issues? Definitely. Was that a pun? Maybe. Is that a romance brewing? Are we still lying to you? CLAP FOR M.O.D.O.K.!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The reveal of M.O.D.O.K.’s origin should be highly entertaining and the issue as a whole will most assuredly contain that trademark wit and zaniness that each and every issue possesses. Arguably this series is the best Avengers title on the stands today.

  1. It’s a fairly average pickup list for me next week.
    Tomb Raider 8 (starting to consider dropping the title, but I’ll give it a few more issues)
    Red Sonja 12
    Amazing Spider-Man 1.5
    Amazing X-Men 11 (might drop it after the Wendigo storyline finishes)
    Cyclops 5
    Guardians of the Galaxy 19
    Magneto 10
    Storm 3

    • Thanks for sharing.

      I picked up the first issues of Tomb Raider and Cyclops but neither series really grabbed me right off the bat and with an already crowded pull-list I didn’t continue with them.

      GOTG #19 just missed my Top 5 as I’m excited to see the resolution to the Thanos-Quill-Nova storyline and Magneto started out slow but has been getting progressively better each time an issue comes out.
