THE WEEK (NOV 28-DEC 4, 2012)

FEATURED REVIEW
FF #1
(w) Matt Fraction
(p) Mike Allred
This has got to be my most anticipated ‘Marvel NOW!’ series besides Young Avengers. It feels like Matt Fraction and Mike Allred are creating a book that’s going to be something extremely special in this day and age. Don’t miss it.

Reviews
Aquaman #14
(w) Geoff Johns
(p) Pete Woods
It’s the aftermath of “The Others” and an unofficial prelude to next the upcoming “Throne of Atlantis” crossover with Justice League. The effects of Black Manta and Aquaman’s face-off will be covered, I’m sure, and Ocean Master is making his ‘New 52’ debut!

Justice League Dark #14
(w) Jeff Lemire
(p) Lee Garbett
The conclusion of “War for the Books of Magic” brought Frankenstein and Amethyst into the fold as new members of the JLD. Jeff Lemire will “pick up the pieces” from the encounter with Nick Necro and get the next exciting arc going!


Superman #14
(w) Scott Lobdell
(p) Kenneth Rocafort
Being a ‘Superman’ event, technically, I guess I should have assumed we wouldn’t get a bulk of the “H’el on Earth” story until an actual issue of Superman. Hopefully, Scott Lobdell can shed some light onto the machinations of H’el…please.

Teen Titans #14
(w) Scott Lobdell
(p) Ale Garza
Red Robin is missing — presumably due to the events of “Death of the Family” — so the Titans head to Gotham to look for him. Good idea, right? Nope.

Thor: God of Thunder #2
(w) Jason Aaron
(p) Esad Ribic
Jason Aaron continues his absolutely amazing new run with Thor: God of Thunder and the menace of the God Butcher. Esad Ribic’s art seriously adds a whole new level of depth to the story, and Aaron’s haunting tale of three eras is riveting.


Uncanny Avengers #2
(w) Rick Remender
(p) John Cassaday
It’s been eight weeks since Uncanny Avengers #1, which is a little disconcerting. This is Marvel’s new flagship series, and it’s second issue was nearly a month late. Fortunately, Rick Remender and John Cassaday is a team I — and many, many other fans — am willing to wait for. Early reviews are putting this issue on a pedestal, so hopefully it lives up to the hype.

Extra! Extra!

All-New X-Men #2
(w) Brian Michael Bendis
(p) Stuart Immonen

Batman Incorporated #5
(w) Grant Morrison
(p) Chris Burnham

Batman: The Dark Knight #14
(w) Gregg Hurwitz
(p) David Finch

The Flash #14
(w) Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato
(p) Francis Manapul

Red Lanterns #14
(w) Peter Milligan
(p) Miguel Sepulveda
