Picks of the Week – January 30, 2013

It’s the last new comics day of January 2013, and while the temperatures have been erratic, at least we are guaranteed a bunch of good books to read.


Aquaman #16 (DC Comics) – Throne of Atlantis continues.  As the surface world engages the forces of Atlantis along with the newly activated JL reserves, Aquaman searches the ocean for the fallen Superman and Wonder Woman, only to stumble upon a villain he faced early in this series run.  Plus, we learn who is responsible for the war between Atlantis and the surface world.

Batman and Robin Annual #1 (DC Comics) – While the Bat’s away, the bird will play.  As Bruce sets off on a scavenger hunt directed by his son, Damien takes his turn as the dark knight in his own special way.

Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time #1 (IDW) – Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, IDW brings us a new series.  In this issue, the first Doctor and his companions hit Victorian England only to discover an invasion under their feet.  But, the real crux of this series is that a mysterious entity has decided to strike against the one thing the Doctor always has: his companions.

Mara #2 (Image Comics) – Mara tries to keep the pieces of her life together after it was shattered in the previous issue.  In the previous issue, she revealed superhuman abilities, but just how powerful is she?
