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:

Amazing Spider-Man #9

“SPIDER-VERSE BEGINS HERE! Superstar artist OLIVIER COIPEL (THOR, SIEGE, HOUSE OF M) joins DAN SLOTT to bring you the biggest spider-event ever! When a force of evil threatens spider-characters throughout the multiverse, EVERY SPIDER-MAN EVER is needed to save the day!
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The time has finally arrived as Spider-Man enters the Spider-Verse event. We’ve been building up to this for months now and just imagining the original Spider-Man getting to mix with “every Spider-Man ever” should not only be awesome but provide many memorable moments as well. My Spidey-sense is tingling with excitement!

Fairy Quest: Outcasts #1
Fairy Quest Outcasts #1
Creative Team

Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos
Solicitation
“WHY WE LOVE IT: FAIRY QUEST is the passion project of Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos, the team behind REVELATIONS and a legendary run on Spectacular SpiderMan. They have put their heart, love, and creative wonder into this groundbreaking series, and we’re excited to explore more of the world of Fablewood! WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: We all grew up reading fairy tales. We all love fairy tales! But if you enjoy your fairy tales with a twist like Fables, Fairest, or Once Upon a Time, FAIRY QUEST is the perfect series for you. Plus, Paul and Humberto have already made the fans their co-publishers with a successful Kickstarter. WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The adventures of Red and Mister Woof have only just begun. In Fablewood, all of the stories that have ever been told live side-by-side. But it is an evil place, overseen by the awful Mister Grimm and his cadre of Think Police. Red and Woof want to escape to a world where their friendship isn’t prohibited, but nothing can prepare them for what lies ahead in the Dark Forest. ”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It 
I loved the first volume of Fairy Quest which was a refreshing and just plain beautiful two-issue mini-series. Now we get to delve back into the world to continue Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf’s journey. If you didn’t read the first volume and love the fairy-tale genre you owe it to yourself to check it out. Meanwhile, I’ll take great pleasure in finally getting the second volume in my hands after over a year later from the previous one’s release.

Becky Cloonan and Karl Kerschl
Solicitation
“Olive joins the creepy Order of the Bat as an afterschool activity, and we learn more about her secret past!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
This is a title unlike anything going on in the Bat-verse today. We are just beginning to piece together what makes our main character tick which in turn makes us want to read more and discover what is coming next. I’m crossing my fingers that this follow-up issue surpasses the debut one and leads us down the road to a fairly long and enjoyable run indeed.

“As seen in the blockbuster Marvel Studios film, Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket and Groot are back! It’s the breakout hit series of the summer! As their space adventures continue, find out why Rocket Raccoon and Groot are quickly becoming the hottest characters in the Marvel Universe. How does the most dangerously daring critter of the cosmos get the bad guys? With his two best friends: Guns and Groot!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
I am Groot. I…am Groot. I…am…Groot. Translation: This series is fun. This series is excellent. This series is a breath of fresh air every week it comes out.

  1. Really looking forward to the start of the Spiderverse in ASM #9, should be an epic storyline. Also can’t wait to see Alfred and Bane teaming up in Batman Eternal #31, and Earth 2 #28 as well. Will be a great new comic book day 😀

    • I picked up the first issue of Birthright and am undecided what I should do. If the next issue is similar to the first (flashbacks to him as a kid mixed with present day) then I’ll probably pick that up as well. Thanks for sharing your pull-list.

  2. There’s really only one event in the near future that I’m actually excited for, and it’s Spider-Verse. Apart from Ends of the Earth, all of Dan Slott’s major Spider-Man storylines have at least been entertaining, and even Ends of the Earth wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t good. So Amazing Spider-Man 9 is an absolute must.
    Apart from that, Gotham Academy 2, Superman Unchained 9 (only to see how it ends since I have every other issue), Blood Queen 6, Vampirella 6, All New X-Factor 16, Legendary Star Lord 5 and Rocket Raccoon 5.

    • Yes. Spider-Verse has a lot of build-up to it but I think this will be a case where all that build-up does not disappoint us. Expectations are high but I think the final product will be of a high calibre as well. Thanks for sharing your pull-list and your thoughts. It is always appreciated. 🙂
