New comics are due to hit the shelves on Wednesday so here’s a look ahead at some of the books we’ll be picking up this week.
Matt C: Before Lazarus makes a welcome return, Kill Or Be Killed is, for my money, the best ongoing on the stands (Mister Miracle is a limited series!). Dylan Cross remains locked up in a mental hospital while someone on the outside makes a misguided attempt to continue his work, and whether this is the demon's masterplan or an aspect of Dylan's madness... well, only Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips can say for sure, and let's hope they continue to take their time in saying it. Also from Image is Descender #28; it may not get the attention that some of Jeff Lemire's output gets around these parts but it has been consistently excellent, a thoughtful and emotional meditation on the nature of humanity and sentience. Marvel's big book this Wednesday will surely be Mighty Thor #705. The Jane-Foster-As-Thor storyline only had a limited shelflife (it was inevitable the Odinson would eventually return to centre stage) but it appears we're heading to the most heartwrenching of conclusions based on the trajectory of recent issues. Will there be something in my eye by the time it's all over (or as over as things can ever be)? It seems guaranteed.
