Jake and Mike's Picks of the Week- 8/19/15

Here are the picks of the week, which books did you pick up today?

Jake's Picks:

Martian Manhunter #3 This has been one of DC's most consistently interesting books to come out of their new line of comics.  Everything J'onn thought he knew about his life has been a lie and an invasion of Earth is making him question his allegiances.  With gorgeous art by Eddy Barrows this is a series that's in it for the long run.

Doctor Fate #3 Doctor Fate has always been one of my favorite characters.  While this isn't Kent Nelson, I was still eager to give the new Doctor a chance.  The first issue was a bit slow but the series has picked up drastically, showing us what it's like to have the universe's most powerful magic at your disposal in an instant.  It's been interesting watching the new Doctor get used to those powers and how he'll be the next powerful sorcerer in the DCU.

Mega Man #52 This is the final issue of the Mega Man and Sonic World's Unite crossover.  This series has been so much fun!  I played Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man both growing up so starting this crossover event was a no-brainer.  This is the grand finale and one that you don't want to miss!

Mike's Picks:

Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #4 I love Adam Kubert's art in this book! It's a real page-turner for me. Dan Slott has really written something cool here outside of the natural Spider-man story. I mean, Slott did give us Superior Spider-man, which was very love/hate, but this isn't Spider-ock. This is Peter Parker with a new responsibility that has great powers.

Robin Son of Batman #3 Patrick Gleason has always made Batman and Robin a blast to read, but it has always been about the two of them. Now, we get to see Damian on his own being his own man. I also like how it takes place outside of the normal doom and gloomy Gotham that we are use to. Its very adventuresous with some fantasy; a very cool book.

Island #2 I'm always a fan of big, weird, and skewered stories that we are not use to. Brandon Graham is one of my all time favorite writers and artists who has done such great titles like "King City" and re-imaging Rob Liefield's "Prophet". Brandon has now collaborated with several writers and artists to put out this great magazine of comic shorts and it just reeks of creativity.
