Jake and Mike's Picks of the Week- 1/27/16

Jake's Picks:

 Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot Katana #1  First, Deadshot is on the run, taking on a series of new contracts, and re-establishing himself as the world’s most deadly marksman. But things are about to get complicated for Floyd Lawton when a figure from his past threatens to expose a dark secret…and Deadshot gets word of his next target: Lex Luthor! Then,  Katana needs to know more about Soultaker’s origin if she’s going to have any hope of controlling the sword instead of falling under its influence. Dr. Helga Jace, a Markovian astrophysicist, may be able to shed some light—but before Katana can get the info, Kobra’s forces attack!

 Kanan #10  Caleb Dume’s first days in The Clone Wars continue...Master Billaba brings her Padawan and their clones to the Battle of Mygeeto. Separatist Generals Sear and Grievous lay in wait.  Whether you watch Star Wars Rebels or not, this book is fun for any Star Wars fans of all ages.

 Aquaman #48  The massive conclusion to Arthur Curry’s exile from Atlantis is here! Can Mera escape from her treacherous sister, Siren? Will the other-dimensional refugees of Thule be rescued? I've really liked what Cullen Bunn has done on Aquaman.  It's such a shame that he's leaving the book so soon, but I highly suggest that if you haven't given this story a arc a chance, you should.

Mike's Picks:

 Daredevil #3   I loved Mark Waid's work on this book, but Soule has done a absolute amazing job with bringing Daredevil back to its dark roots. This book is much more grittier than it has been the last few years, and its an absolute fresh and familiar take on the character. Garney's art is brilliant too. He adds to Soule's story so much! Matt has got his secret identity back, but it most certainly hasn't made is life easier, already he has fought the hand, as well as become an instructor for a hero in training, and legally taking on a church/cult.

 Prophet: Earth War #1  I think the best thing Image has ever done was hiring writers to recreate Robert Liefeld's original characters for Image.   Joe Keatinge did a amazing job with Glory and Brandon Graham totally turned Prophet into an out-of-this-world space odyssey! Its been a few years since Brandon's and i can't tell you how long I've waited for this book. Finally we will see how John Prophet finish the War he has started!

 Superman #48  Clark is getting so close to getting his powers back... Or at least we think. And he's taking the most dangerous risk in doing so, obtaining Kryptonite! This has been a very long and drawn out story between two writers and multiple artist, but I feel like the story is really unique and will be worth the ending. I also love all the tie-ins the help fill in gaps in the store.
