Hey! Marvel comics I’m excited about seeing. The King-Size Spider-Man Summer Special has a story drawn by Colleen Coover, whose art I adore. I hope it’s the one about Mary Jane, She-Hulk, Hellcat, and other female heroes teaming up!
On the DC side, I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high for the Ambush Bug miniseries, because I want to enjoy it without too many preconceptions. The new preview, taking on Dan Didio, suggests pulling no punches, which I like. (Although it’s not from the comic itself, but from an upcoming DC Nation promo page.) And hey, there’s also a special reprinting hard-to-find older stories.
I have to admit that I’ve cheated and already read Family Dynamic #1 because I interviewed the guys for the August issue of PiQ magazine. I’ve been fans of J. Torres and Tim Levins since the Copybook Tales days. I liked this take on the family superhero team because it considers different generations and more relatives than just the usual spouse and siblings, although they’re included too.
I’m planning on trying Air, a new series by G. Willow Wilson and M.K. Perker, because I loved their Cairo graphic novel, and the preview is intriguing. I may wait until the first collection, though. I’m just not looking for any new monthly series right now.
I must not have looked at the catalog at all last month, because I’m seeing a lot of #2 issues of things I don’t remember ever seeing #1 of. I thought bothering to preorder was supposed to make me more aware of what was coming up, not less.
Image has a new Hawaiian Dick paperback, collecting the first six issues of the series. I like the characters, I love the look of the art, and the extras found in the books are always cool.
Plus, Viz seems to have decided to release one volume from every ongoing series of theirs I get this month! Too many to talk about now.
