Jake and Mike's Picks of the Week- 12/9/15

Jake's Picks:

Head Lopper #2 I am all about a good sword & sorcery comic, Head Lopper is as good as they come.  Andrew Maclean gives us a fun and engaging story with some awesome art to pair with it.  This series has plenty of good humor and world-building to boot.  Think of it as Adventure Time for adults.

Scarlet Witch #1 James Robinson's name on the cover made me want to pick up this book and he didn't disappoint.  Scarlet Witch is one of those characters I'm not crazy familiar with but always thought was cool.  A mysterious new dark magic has made it's way to Wanda's city, and she feels like she needs to stop it as a part of a personal journey.  The art style is perfect for the use of magic and darkness throughout, I'm hooked already.

Batman TMNT #1 This crossover has been anticipated for a long time.  Being a big fan of both the Ninja Turtles and Batman, this is a childhood dream come true.  James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II show us something we haven't seen before, but something that I think is going to be one hell of a fun ride.

Batman #47 I know that I always picks Batman, but I can't help it!  This new villain is so wicked.  It's been seven issues and we've still been left in the dark about who he is and what his agenda is.  When Mr. Bloom showed himself to Gotham, he made sure we knew how wicked and powerful he is.

Giant Days #9 I started this book when it first came out 9 months ago but didn't pick it up after.  I'm glad I gave it a second chance.  This book does an awesome job at making me relive an emotion.  It may seem a tad bit "CW" drama-ish but it's still good writing!

Secret Wars #8 This was originally supposed to be the last issue but luckily for us Hickman felt like he had more to tell.  I can't believe we are finally seeing the end of this lengthy tale, but I'm ready for an outcome.  I'm also ready to see a giant-sized Ben Grimm clobber Doom as a god.
