Jake's Picks:

 Legend of Wonder Woman #1  A new WONDER WOMAN 9-issue miniseries begins here with a story written and penciled by Renae De Liz.  In the beginning there was only chaos. But Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, saw a better future—and eventually, her daughter would be destined to bring that new world to life! Before her ultimate fate unfolds, though, Diana of Themyscira must learn the important lessons of an Amazonian childhood!

 Devolution #1  Every living creature on Earth has been devolved - the evolutionary clock turned back, reverting all life to odd mutations and prehistoric incarnations. The cities of man are little more than bloody territories ruthlessly dominated by tribal Neanderthals ruling from the backs of mammoths, packs of saber-toothed tigers, and giant man-eating insects. Writer Rick Remender, artist Jon Wayshak, and colorist Jordan Boyd take you on a journey with the last band of "Still Sapien" humans in the hope of locating an antidote and re-evolving the human race.

 American Monster #1  In a small Midwestern town, a large man with a horribly scarred face gets off a bus, and takes a room. He spooks the locals--nobody knows him--or do they? It’s impossible to say be-cause he seemingly has no face. The man’s intentions remain unknown, until he takes on a corrupt sheriff and the rural crew of racist arms dealers. The town’s impression of the man changes, and he’s seen as a hero…until his real intentions bubble to the surface. The man isn’t there to end the gang, but to take it over. And he’s just getting started.

Mike's Picks:

 Legacy of Luther Strode #4   The Luther Strode book just blows me away with every issue since The Strange Tale of Luther Strode came out several years ago. I really love Jordan intertwines history into this book and how our hero Luther fights his fate with history and blood lust to be something better.

 Captain Marvel #1   It has been weird to read a Captain Marvel book without Kelly Sue Deconnick on writing duty, but Fazekas did an excellent job taking off where Deconnick left it. Danver has always shown she has the ability to lead, but now it'll be her job to take charge of the new Alpha Flight.

 Silver Surfer #1  It's nice to read Dan Slott on a book that's not Spider-man. This book really just continues where the last series left off. Slott does a good job of taking something, making it corkey, but deadly series at the same time. I think this book is a nice break from the average superhero genre.
