Jake and Mike's Picks of the Week- 1/13/16

Jake's Picks:

 Black Knight #3  You all know how much I love this series at this point. This is it -- the moment you’ve been waiting for! The Black Knight vs. the Avengers! Will Dane and his forces vanquish his old team mates? Or will this mark the end of Dane’s adventures in Weirdworld?

 King Conan Wolves Beyond the Borded #1  I know this has been out for a couple weeks but I finally got my hands on a copy.  King Conan grows weary of the crown. When an old soldier visits him with talk of a cursed relic and rumors of Pictish tribes preparing a full-scale invasion on Aquilonia’s borders, Conan eagerly embarks on what could be his final adventure!

 STarfire #8  Is Dick Grayson here to stay? Starfire has tackled some big threats during her stay in Key West—from hurricanes to intergalactic bounty hunters, from insane murderers to gargantuan monsters from the deep and everything in between. But our hero’s biggest challenge may be choosing between an ex and a new love interest.

 Secret Wars #9  Finally!!  We are going to see how this "All New, All Different" Marvel is created.  Hickman has done an incredible job displaying the magnitude of Doom being a god and the sacrifices made to take down a god, yet nothing can be done to make things the way they were.

 All New All Different Avengers #3  I've been pleased as punch to have Mark Waid on an Avengers title!  I love the line up and the mix of characters, and I love how dysfunctional the team is.  The Avengers have disbanded but the need is still there, so you're starting off fresh with a team of adults who have been Avengers and teenagers who are good at what they do, but they've never been on a team.  There's so many dynamics and it works so well!

 Might Morphin' Power Rangers #0  I grew up on Fox Kids in the 90's and I remember the first time I watched Power Rangers, it blew my mind.  This show introduced so many things to me and helped me explore other genres such as manga and other mecha comics and shows.  The fighting was awesome and the monsters were great.  I'm glad Boom! could put together a book with Kyle Higgins and use the original team.  This is something I can't wait to share with my kids on day!
