It’s that time again! Here’s what J and I will be reading this week. Looks like it’s Marvel week for us.
All New Captain America #4
I am loving this New Cap storyline. Think of this as Marvel’s Batman Beyond. An older Steve Rodgers is helping Sam Wilson/Falcon/Captain America from behind the scenes. It’s a little much for J, but I could see this being a favorite of older kids I would say 10 would probably be the youngest.
All New Captain America: Fear Him #3
Cap found where Nomad was being held. With the help of some kids, Nomad escaped Scarecrow’s clutches. Now Cap and Nomad are stuck on a Subway train car with a tunnel filled with teens gassed by Scarecrow. How will Cap and Nomad escape and still save these kids?
Marvel Universe Guardians of the Galaxy #1
Want to get a sneak peek at what is coming to Disney XD later this year? Then make sure you check out this four part GotG mini-series. We are getting our copy today!
Legendary Star Lord #9
Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde are now together with plans of stealing the Black Vortex from Mr Knife aka Peter’s Father. Will they succeed even if though they were followed by one of Knife’s Slaughter Squad members?
Ms Marvel #12
Kamala Khan (Ms Marvel) has taken down the Inventor and his creator is behind bars. A year’s worth of missing persons cases solved in one night. What’s next for this Ms Marvel? With some parental editing, this series is a great one for kids, especially young girls.
Rocket Raccoon #8
Groot is on the brink of death. Rocket and Jink are on their way to find an antidote to the venom that is killing Groot. To save Groot they are going to have to battle a giant monster without the aid of Rocket’s massive gun. Will they get the antidote and make it back before Groot succumbs to the venom?
Itty Bitty Mask #4
©Dark Horse Comics
Aliens from the Moon have declared war on Big City. The Mask has already caused problems in Big City by turning a grandmother into a pancake making, cookie baking machine, by turning the zoo animals into artists who made Zoo Con, and started the alien invasion by taking a bite out of the moon as Mayor Mask, can the Mask make up for those mistakes by helping rid the Earth of the Moon aliens? Guess we will find out at 11:00 AM. Side note, J adores anything by Art Baltazar and Franco. I recommend this series and anything else done by the Aw Yeah! Comics crew for your kids.
Arrow Season 2.5 #5
Felicity has been captured by Brother Blood’s followers. Sara is in town to help Team Arrow defeat this new incarnation of Brother Blood. If you wanted to know what happened between the season 2 finale and the season 3 premiere, you need to be reading this series!! If your kids are fans of the show, this is a must have for their collection. If they are younger, you should probably read ahead so you can do some “creative reading”.
All New Captain America: Fear Him #2
Nomad has been captured by the Scarecrow, most likely to be tortured by the things that he fears the most. Will Cap get to Nomad before it’s too late? This 6 issue series looks like it’s going to be one that is not for the faint of heart. I would say you should skip this one for the smaller kids, but pick it up for yourself.
This storyline is so amazing not only did we see a woman take the on the power and name of Thor, but we got to see Thor and the Odinson do battle. I am so excited to see what lies ahead for this new, amazing Thor. PS, J loves this series. You will definitely want to peek through the issues before reading them with your younger kids.
Darth Vader #1
You’ve seen what the Rebels were up to immediately following ‘A New Hope’, now let’s see what the “Baddest Man in the Land” Lord Vader is up to in Darth Vader #1. Also make sure you check out the Skottie Young variant. J is a huge Star Wars fan and even a bigger Vader fan. He is so excited to make our weekly trip to the comicbook shop later today.
