- APR082263 CAPTAIN AMERICA #39 $2.99
In 2007 the unthinkable happened: Captain America died!
Worse still, he was assassinated, all in a revenge scheme by his arch-nemesis, the Red Skull! [Captain America #25]
Much has changed since Cap's death and the end of the superhero Civil War, including the emergence of a new sentinel of liberty, one who once fought beside the Captain, and before he died, fought against him -- Bucky Barnes; the Winter Soldier!
With a time displaced WWII Captain arriving with his fellow Invaders in the present day, a disbelieving man-out-of-time will come face to face with his successor, and the legacy he may never have intended to leave behind! Fight! Fight! Fight!
- APR080166 FINAL CRISIS #2 (OF 7) $3.99
The first issue didn't do big things for me [Final Crisis #1]; in fact, I was surprised just how pedestrian Grant Morrison's all-setup issue turned out to be. The Scot promises to turn up the wacky in issue two as he introduces Most Excellent Superbat and the Japanese heroes, the Super Young Team! That, plus some action as Batman is the first of the heroes to fall before the assault of the fallen New Gods -- and what's the deal with that Flash cover? Hopefully we'll start to get some answers as the Final Crisis juggernaut slowly begins creaking into motion!
- APR080210 GREEN LANTERN #32 $2.99
If you read Sinestro Corps War but are still relatively new to the world of the Green Lantern, then this origin recap proves to be the perfect place to get to know pink, moustached, and eggheaded! Geoff Johns continues his reinvention of GL as he recaps the secret origins of Hal Jordan, and the early adventures that made him the Lantern he is today! Not only that, but the ever competent writer begins to lay the groundwork for 2009's blockbuster epic, Blackest Night, tying Jordan's early adventures with the event that promises to introduce a Corps of the undead!
- FEB082223 HULK #4 $2.99
Wow, is it really only the fourth issue?
We here at the Infinite Wars whole heartedly endorse the method of solving all your problems with extreme violence. Punch is good. But it's a whole lot more interesting when you know who it is that you're punch. Okay... Maybe that isn't always true, but in this case, we'd like to get the "mystery" of the Red Hulk over and done with... Please, Mr. Loeb? Can't we open just one present on Christmas Eve? Pleeeease?!
- APR082265 IMMORTAL IRON FIST #16 $2.99
With all the Mortal Kombat hoohah going on around here; fans of the beat 'em up franchise will want to consider going back to track down the collected edition (or issues) of Seven Capital Cities of Heaven; before diving into these latest issues. The new creative team take the opportunity to bring Iron Fist back to his roots and reestablish the hero as an urban presence, but there's still plenty of obstacles for the master martial artist -- deadly obstacles! If martial arts tounaments and secret best fighting is up your alley, give it a go! Hyeaaahhh!
- APR082295 MIGHTY AVENGERS #15 SI $2.99
As the Secret Invasion gets into full swing, we finally get vital information on the infiltration of a key-Skrull impostor! Hank Pym has never been the most stable of characters, but it seems he's just one of many trusted heroes lost in the invasion of the Skrull!
- APR082306 SHE-HULK 2 #30 $2.99
He might just be the sleeper hero of 2008, and key to his victory was his World War Hulk sympathies for a Hulk who felt he had been wronged by the heroes of the Illuminati!
If teaming with the Hulk was a good career move, then you've got to think when Hercules comes to blows with She-Hulk, it's going to be a pretty good thing! Sure, unlike Captain America, you won't have the insular guarantee that this opponent doesn't just turn out to be a Skrull impostor, but heck! Peter David writing a gamma irradiated smackdown? Why the heck not, true believer!?!
- APR080182 SUPERMAN #677 $2.99
The Green Lantern stops by as James Robinson continues to blaze as he attempts to breath new life into Superman!
Not entirely sure I'm feeling what reads like a deliberate attempt to play to Superman's roots as a Southern-bred boy from Kansas; but, previews paint a foreboding threat to Lois Lane that's too intriguing to miss, suggesting perhaps a new entry into the legend of Women in Refridgerators! Will this be the second-coming of Superman? I'm not entirely sure Robinson has the rounded game necessary to make that happen, but it should be interesting finding out!
- APR082312 THUNDERBOLTS #121 $2.99
Warren Ellis finally closes the door on his lagging run on Thunderbolts!
If the series, starting with Faith in Monsters could be summed up as an exercise in letting the madmen run the asylum, then it's probably safe to say the biggest nutjob of all has finally been let loose. I don't know about anyone else, but from the minute Osborn started popping pills and giggling hysterically everytime he misheard things as Spider-man, I've been waiting. It strikes me as amazing that Ellis dragged his heels to hand this major moment off to the next writer. The onus might be on me, for maybe wanting Ellis to be Mark Millar, but it feels like, at the end of the day, the company work constantly falls short of the ideas I feel Ellis is associated with. If you're buying last week's comics, it might be worth checking this out, just to see how it ends!
