This Week’s Comics – May 6th, 2015

This Week’s Comics is the pull list of Comic Books recommended by Hush Comics, with notes and suggestions by co-owner, Sherif Elkhatib.

Recommendations:

Swords of Sorrow #1: Another name for this book might be “Badass Women Who Kill Things.” Swords of Sorrow is a team-up book written by Gail Simone (BatgirlSecret Six) and starring Dynamite’s most kick-ass women characters. That means Red Sonja, Vampirella, Kato and more will be joining forces in a pulp adventure book written by Simone and a collective of women writers (Ms. Marvel‘s G. Willow Wilson chief among them). These characters have historically been sex’d up through the years, so it will be great to get women’s perspective.

Guardians Team-Up #5: Normally I wouldn’t recommend these weekly cash-grab books since they tend to be either short, low on quality, or both. This week, however, you can make an exception to pick up this team-up featuring none other than the Pet Avengers. Throg and all his buddies are collaborating with Rocket and crew, ensuring this will be at least a unique read.

Secret Wars #1: If you’ve just about had all the Convergence you can take, then Marvel’s new big event might be just what the Doctor Strange ordered. It really doesn’t alter in purpose all that much from the current DC mega-event; all the universes will essentially merge together, and each one will fight another for freedom/existence. To be honest, I’m kinda scared – only because it’s apparent that DC spent no time on the quality of Convergence. There’s no guarantee that Secret Wars won’t be just as messy, but at this point, the devil that I don’t know can’t be worse than the one I do.
