Every week, a different Panelteer will give you a rundown of the comics they’re most looking forward to for the week. Floppies, trades and omniboo are all fair game here. This week, Ali tells us what’s on her pull list.
Here we go!
Power Up #1 by Kate Leth and Matt Cummings (BOOM! Studios)
One of the superheroes in this comic is a goldfish. A GOLDFISH YOU GUYS. Can it talk? It looks like it can turn into a tiny whale from the cover; does it have other powers? What’s its attention span like? Is it as adorable as Saga’s Ghüs? (I’m thinking yes.) SO MANY QUESTIONS! I’m a big fan of Kate Leth’s work and I’m really excited to see what she’ll do with characters that are her very own. And Matt Cummings’ art is so cute if it had a face I would squish it.
Spider-Woman #9 by Dennis Hopeless and Javier Rodriguez (Marvel)
The cover for this issue is lacking a Secret War, Battleworld, etc banner. Which I’m happy about because I’m really digging the whole Jessica Drew and Ben Urich team-up to solve cold cases thing this comic has going for it. There’s only a few more of these before they make Jess preggers. And I don’t know how I feel about that. So I’m going to enjoy this run while it lasts.
Grayson #10 by Tim Seeley, Tom King, and Mikel Janin (DC Comics)
