Jake and Mike's Picks of the Week- 9/16/15

Here are our favorites of this week!

Jake's Picks:

Voltron from the Ashes #1 I am a huge Voltron fan; I love the show from the 80's, I've watched the newer shows they've done since then, and I've read just about every comic series that's come out.  From the Ashes is a fresh series featuring brand new characters, and while I was worried that my inner fanboy would come out and I wouldn't like the new characters, Cullen Bunn wrote this issue very well and I'm excited for the next one.  If you're a fan of Voltron, or just big robots in general, give this book a try.

Captain America White #1 We've all been waiting for this issue to come out since 2008 and it's finally here!  The dynamic duo that is Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb return and give us a new mini series all about Captain America.  This series focuses heavily on Cap after waking up and remembering Bucky is gone, so he has a lot of inner demons to come to terms with.  Tim Sale is one of my favorite artists and this issue reminded me why, the art is just perfect.  The panels flow well and I love his character designs, this is one you don't want to miss.

Will Eisner's The Spirit #3 I'm a sucker for pulp heroes, and the Spirit is probably the most iconic pulp hero out there.  The mystery continues to figure out who was behind Denny's disappearance, but Ebony White and Sammy Strunk are on the case!  Their sleuthing takes them to Irongate Prison where we get to see a good flashback story featuring the Spirit and Sand Seraf.  This series is always a lot of fun, Matt Wagner never disappoints.

Mike's Picks:

Robin Son of Batman #4 This is one book that I get excited for every single month.  I really like that we get a chance to focus strictly on Damian, and the last page of issue three was such a tease.  The cover says it all...Deathstroke!

Spider-Island #4 I always loved the idea of Flash Thompson as Agent Venom, and he is definitely the focus of this book.  Plus we get to see a blast from the past, Capwolf!!

Infinity Gauntlet #4 *Spoilers* Last issue we just witness Thanos killing himself.  Not, not suicide, but Thanos in a different point in time, befriending humans but disgusted in doing so.  But he'll play along to once again have possession of the infinity stones.
