What we’re reading this morning: Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson‘s Astro City #1 — which finally found a new home at Vertigo. Featuring new and old characters, this book is a great opportunity to jump into the series. The narration and humor makes this a fresh and fun read. In addition to adults, we think teens/young adults will also particularly like this one. Stop in for your copy!
You might be asking yourself, “what comic should I read that I might not know about?” Savage Wolverine #6 is the start of a new story arc by Zeb Wells, Joe Madureira and Peter Steigerwald. This features not only Wolverine and Spiderman, but also the Kingpin, Elektra, the Avengers, Lady Bullseye and the Hand. Basically, Wolverine and Elektra have to join the Kingpin to thwart the resurrection of a deadly villain. There’s also an introduction of a new villain trio, the Arbiters.
If you are wondering who Joe Madureira is, he’s an artist that took a hiatus from the comic world to pursue other ventures. He has a Manga style that translates well to comics with fast pacing and that are quick reads.
