Picks of the Week – August 7, 2013

Now that I have taken a moment to talk about my 1,000 posts, it’s time to get back to normal with this week’s comic picks.


Green Lantern #23 (DC Comics) – Hal Jordan has his work cut out for him as the new leader of the Green Lantern Corps.  He is sidled with a group of recruits that, frankly, do not seem to be the best to him.  Oa is still recovering from Larfreeze’s attack, and he has to deal with the prison break as well.  So, why does the latest ring malfunction have him worried?

Batman Detective Comics #23 (DC Comics) – Bruce Wayne and Alfred travel to the heart of the dragon’s lair as he confronts businessman E.D. Caldwell, a.k.a. Wrath.

Earth 2 #15 (DC Comics) – We see the aftermath of the heroes attack on Dherain.  Plus, in the battle between Mr. Miracle and Barda against Fury, a new player takes the field.

Phantom Stranger #11 (DC Comics) – In a Trinity War tie-in, The Phantom Stranger returns to heaven in an attempt to bring back the soul of Doctor Light.  And anyone who remembers past issues will know he is not exactly welcomed to the hereafter.

All-New X-Men #15 (Marvel Comics) – Love is in the air for the time displaced original X-Men.  But, it isn’t exactly the love that most readers would be expecting.

Sidekick #1 (Image Comics) – Flyboy was the sidekick of the Red Cowl… at least until The Red Cowl was assassinated.  Now Flyboy struggles to find his place in the world that still sees him as nothing not a sidekick to a fallen hero.
