Welcome back to “Nerd Issues Weekly.” This week is a rather busy week for comics with all of the major players having a pretty solid selection for us to choose from.
1. The Walking Dead #128
Story by: Robert Kirkman
Art by: Charlie Adlard
Publisher: Image Comics
If you’re a fan of the show, but haven’t had a chance to read the comic that started it all, you should definitely look into doing so. The second part of the Volume 22’s “A New Beginning” is releasing this week as we still come down off the events that took place during the “All Out War” arch. “The Walking Dead” has been with little to no flaw during its run, so expect no different from this issue as we delve deeper into the arc.
2. Amazing Spider-Man #1.2
Story by: Dan Slott
Arty by: Ramon Perez, Ian Herring
Publisher: Marvel Comics
This week we see the second “Point One” of the three-part series of Dan Slott’s “Learning to Crawl” released. After the events that took place during the run of “The Superior Spider-Man,” it’s comforting to have Peter Parker back as the Webslinger. For those new to the series, this is not a bad place to jump in, as Marvel’s Point One series is tailored towards that very audience.
3. Star Wars #18
Story by: Brian Wood
Art by: Stéphane Créty, Julien Hugonnard-Bert, Gabe Eltaeb, Víctor Manuel Leza
Publisher: Dark Horse
As we just barely pass the halfway point of the final year of Dark Horse publishing “Star Wars” comics before Marvel takes the reigns beginning in 2015, there has been no shortage of quality pieces coming out. This week, we seeing Brian Wood continuing his brilliant work in the “Star Wars” universe, as Princess Leia is set to be married, while the Empire looks to throw aHydrospanner into those plans.
4. Batman Eternal #10
Story by: Scott Snyder, Tim Seely, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, James T. Tynion
Art by: Guillem March
Publisher: DC Comics
For those unfamiliar with the development that’s behind “Batman Eternal,” it is co-written by a group of the industry’s finest, and is planned to be about 60 issues to coincide with the “Batman” series that’s also written by Snyder. In this issue, we can expect to see The Caped Crusader working with the likes of Catwoman with an appearance by the villain Professor Pyg and his band of farm animal-masked accomplices.
5. Red City #1
Story by: Daniel Corey
Art by: Mark Dos Santos
Publisher: Image Comics
Following suit from last week, another new series launching is “Red City,” created by writer Daniel Corey of the hit series “Moriarty,” and illustrated by Mark Dos Santos. “Red City” revolves around the interplanetary investigator Cal Talmage, as he is sent on a mission to find a missing girl in Mars Central City. This is one that I’m going to be picking up for sure this week – I can’t wait to see what Corey has in store for us down the road.
