My first pick of the week is the penultimate issue of Secret Empire. This book has been a really solid event that delivered on every instalment with issue 9 being no exception. Writer Nick Spencer has done a fantastic job crafting an imaginative and gripping story that will leave readers desperate to read the conclusion next week!
This series is really starting to heat up now! After a slow burning start Cable finally throws down with his quarry and what a confrontation it is! Artist Yildiray Cinar draws some awesome action sequences and depicts our favourite time travelling mutant in all his brute glory with ridiculously huge guns all blazing!
This book continues to go from strength to strength. The jokes and pop culture references fly thick and fast in the witty dialogue along with a believable and heartfelt inner monologue. Writer Sina Grace is crafting something really special within the pages of this book and is the perfect voice for Bobby Drake.
WEAPON X #7
Issue seven of Weapon X marks the start of a new story arc entitled origin of a monster. In part one we start to learn about the past of Weapon H and it's pretty fucking cool. Writer Greg Pak is doing a really good job on this book developing a gripping story and ending with interesting cliffhangers making X fans return to read it month after month.
