Post-Crisis Comic Book Previews for 11/30/11

Oh five week months, you make for a rather short round of Post-Crisis Previews.  There's not a ton on any company's list to round of November, but I've still managed to ferret out a handful of books that have piqued my interest.  We have some familiar faces, like Daredevil #6 and Skullkickers #12, but there's some newer titles mixed in as well, including the relaunch of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, so hit that jump to see all that we've got on tap this week!

Written by Mark Waid
Art by Marcos Martin

Matt Murdock relives some of his late father's worst nightmares as Daredevil meets Bruiser, a fighter who can't be put down and won't fall! How will Matt survive--and how will doing so make him the most dangerous man in the Marvel Universe?

Grant: So that's a lot of caps up there, but I'm hard pressed to say that it isn't pretty well warranted.  Mark Waid's Daredevil has been one of the most impressive books on stands since it launched back in August.  Whether it's Paola Rivera or Marcos Martin on art, the book is beautiful, and Waid has been writing the heck out of Matt Murdock's continuing adventures.  To make things even better, I totally didn't immediately realize that the villain introduced last issue is just a straight-up luchador, but he is, and that's awesome.  Can't wait.

Written by Kurtis J. Wiebe
Art by Riley Rossmo

Morley is haunted by ghosts of his past that force him to face his fears about Green Wake. Violent unrest seizes the citizens of the once sleepy town and Morley is forced to choose a place to stand in the deepening social divide.

Grant: Originally slated as a 5 issue limited-series, I'm real glad that Image decided to extend Green Wake up to issue #25 (if I remember that correctly).  Kurtis J. Wiebe is writing some pretty challenging stuff, Riley Rossmo is more than keeping up with some equally trippy stuff when it comes to the art side of things, and I'm happy to see that the book will get even more time to flourish.

Written by Jim Demonakos, Kyle Stevens, Howard Tayler, Zach Weiner, & Jim Zub

"FOUR MORE TAVERN TALES"The Skullkickers tip back a few more pints and you're all invited along to the pub to toast their glory!
This issue is another righteous Skullkicking short story cavalcade by killer comic talent JOELCARROLL (Flight),MIKE LUCKAS,BEN MCSWEENEY (Joe is Japanese),JOE NG (Street Fighter IV),HOWARD TAYLER (Schlock Mercenary),ZACH WEINER (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal), JIM DEMONAKOS & KYLE STEVENS (Kirby Krackle) and JIM ZUB (that SKULLKICKERS comic thing).

Grant: Oh man.  I love Skullkickers, I love anthologies, and I loved the first Skullkickers anthology after the initial story arch, so I have a pretty good feeling when it comes to this one.  It also doesn't hurt that Zach Weiner of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal fame is writing one of the stories.  Sign me up for that, because it's going to be hilarious.

Written by Brian Azzarello
Art by Eduardo Risso

From the Eisner award-winning team behind 100 BULLETS comes the sci-fi story of Orson, a man genetically engineered to withstand the harsh journey to Mars and finds himself trapped in a seriously harsher reality. On the outskirts of the flooded city, Orson’s on the trail of some bloodthirsty pirates. Seems they’re both after the same precious treasure. The only difference is that Orson wants the treasure alive...

Grant: I wasn't entirely won over by the opening issue of Spaceman, but I wasn't turned off either.  There's some real strong dystopian sci-fi going on here, and I generally have a hard time saying no to that.  Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso would have to produce some real mediocrity to get me off this book, which I don't see as particularly likely at this point.  So barring any major disappointments, I will probably be on board for the long run.  I hope I didn't jinx it by saying that...

Written by Nick Spencer
Art by Wes Craig

One of the most critically acclaimed series of the past year returns with a new #1 issue that serves as a great jumping-on point for new readers!
What kind of people willingly become Super Heroes, knowing that their powers will eventually kill them? That’s the question this new 6-part miniseries will explore as the team must face off against the Warlord and his Subterraneans! Nick Spencer (Morning Glories, Ultimate X-Men) teams with rising star Wes Craig for a twisted tale of super heroics, espionage, and action!

Grant: I really dug Nick Spencer's work on T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents before the relaunch.  It's the actually the first comic I've read by him, and in my opinion, was some of his best work.  I've felt that some of the stuff he's done apart from it has varied in quality, but I hope he can bring the same intrigue and excitement to this min-series that he did to the initial series.  My main complaint last time around was when Spencer lost CAFU, and seeing that he's not back, I hope that this Wes Craig fellow can be a capable follow-up.  We shall see.

And that's the week, folks.  Did you manage to find any titles hidden away amongst the rather short lists that I've omitted her?  If so, and if you think they deserve some face time, hit the comments and let me know.

Daredevil is a must. This Bruiser thing has me intrigued.

Green Wake #7 - always. This series is phenomenal.

Spaceman #2 - I'm reviewing this one for CBR so am dipping into the second issue. I didn't mind the second issue, it just felt a bit...disconected. The whole of the issue didn't point to the conclusion and the conclusion was the best part. I'm going digital on this one - my first current ongoing digital. I'll see if 2 wins me over, if not, I won't see it through at all.

Flash Gordon Zeitgeist #1 - I'm reviewing this for CBR and am interested. I like Flash Gordon a lot, blame the 80s movie, and so want to see what Dynamite has geared up for it.

Haunt #19 - I'll give this one a shot for Joe Casey. Hopefully it can make sense without reading 1-18.
