Looking Ahead: August 2009

Written by GLX on Friday, July 31 2009 and posted in Features
GLX takes a look at August's upcoming releases. Pick of the Month:

Amulet: Book Two - The Stonekeeper's Curse

GLX: The sequel to my pick for graphic novel of 2008 is here and I can't wait to check it out. It looks like a million bucks and is probably going to be written well.

(Note: Yeah, Amazon says September 1, but I'm basing the release date on Lee Newman's advance review.

Amazing Spiderman #601-#603

GLX: Buying this arc. Kinda odd that Waid is only writing the first part of the arc, but I think this might be a fun tale. Plus, issue #600 left me intrigued about the whole Mary Jane and Peter dynamic.

Batman and Robin #3

GLX: Easily my favorite title in that DC is publishing. Morrison and Quitely can do no wrong, in my eyes.

Blackest Night #2

GLX: I had a good time with the first issue and I'm interested to see if issue #2 will maintain the quality of the first issue.

Fantastic Four #570

GLX: Millar and Hitch's run on Fantastic Four end strong. Why am I still buying this comic? Hickman and Eaglesham, bitches.

Ghost Riders: Heaven's on Fire #1

GLX: Jason Aaron! Roland Boschi! WOOHOO! $4? Damn........still not enough to keep me away from this comic.

G-Man: Cape Crisis #1

GLX: I dig Chris Giarrusso. I dig G-Man. I wonder what the chances are that I'm going to dig this mini series? Hmmm......

Gotham City Sirens #3

GLX: Really been digging this series. Dini and March are absolutely rocking it and I look forward to this issue.

Greek Street #2

GLX: Enjoyed the debut issue and I'm interested in seeing how the next issue will turn out.

Guardians of the Galaxy #17

GLX: For 16 issues, this series has been great. Odds are that this issue will be great as well.

Runaways #13

GLX: This series is a mix of good and bad(quality wise). Sure, the good outweighs the bad, but I'm still wary of issue #13 delivering the goods.

Secret Warriors #7

GLX: After just finishing the latest issue, I must say that this series kicks ass and I expect this issue to bring the awesome.

The Unwritten #4

GLX: This series has a lot going for it and I expect the next issue will continue to bring the cool.

Thunderbolts #135

GLX: This series has been moving at a nice pace, lately. Plenty of cool stuff is going on and I'm hoping that the next issue will deliver more cool stuff.

Ultimate Comics Avengers #1

GLX: I know that this sucker is $4, but it's by Millar and Pacheco. Come on.

Ultimate Comics Spiderman #1

GLX: Not sure if I'm getting this or not. On one hand, this is going to be $4. On the other hand, Bendis has created a solid body of work with his Ultimate Spidey work.

Uncanny X-Men #514/Dark Avengers #8

GLX: I'm enjoying the Utopia storyline, but something ain't clicking with me. Still, I'm interested to see where Fraction takes this tale.

Viking #3

GLX: I've been saying this for a while, but I'm still going to say it-you really need to be reading this comic. It's in a league of its own. Just get it.

War of Kings #6

GLX: I'm expecting big things from this mini series finale. Big things. Don't blow it, Abnett and Lanning.

X-Men Legacy #227

GLX: I was surprised when I gave the last issue a shot and I had a good time. If this issue is as good as the last issue, I might have to buy this comic regularly again.
