Multiversity: Ultra Comics #1; DC Comics: So, this one’s a bit kooky. Each issue of this comic, delivered by crazed mastermind writer Grant Morrison, comes from a different universe (hence Multiversity,) and offers a distinct interpretation of DC’s long running mythology, all of which unify in a potential multiverse ending crisis. This issue breaks the fourth wall and is written from the perspective of our own universe, placing the reader into the role of protagonist. Yeah, it’s a weird one.
The Walking Dead #139; Image Comics: What can be said about The Walking Dead comic at this point that doesn’t serve as a spoiler for the television show? We’ve jumped ahead a few years in the comic and see a new interpretation of a post-apocalypse civilization. While much of the series has been set in the Southeast, if the image of the long-distance sailing boat on the cover is any indication, the survivors’ world is about to get quite a bit larger.
The Inhumans #13; Marvel Comics: Ever since the film rights for the X-Men franchise were sold to Fox Studios, Marvel has been positioning a new ensemble cast of outsiders; enter: The Inhumans. Think of them like a dynastic version of the X-Men, but with a royal, Game of Thrones-style lineage. This issue promises a great jumping on point for new readers that will explain just who the hell they are.
The Uncanny X-Men #32; Marvel Comics: In whiplash summation of recent ‘X’ events: Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops, has killed Professor Xavier and formed his own, more proactive X-men, much to the chagrin of the originals. The life of Scott Summers has been a great study in character development; an element usually lacking in modern comics. Now after a crisis of conscience, Cyclops must face the man he has become and decide where he leads the X-Men, willingly or not.
