AVENGERS ARENA #3
Grant: Losing Marco Checchetto on interiors has really hurt this book, as Punisher: War Zone has read like a completely different comic than Greg Rucka and Checchetto's run on Punisher. Admittedly, this is partly because the stakes have been raised so high, but it still strikes me as odd that Rucka would upset the status quo and style that he's been writing for this character so thoroughly for this final miniseries. At this point, part of me is just waiting for it to end so I can know how things all shake out and move on to whatever Rucka gets up to next. Also: these solicitations are not getting any better. Yeesh.
Pick of the Week
While there's a wealth of quality books coming out this week, I think that Sweet Tooth #40 is going to be the best comic book on stands on the morrow. There's plenty of other books that could contend for best book, I feel like Jeff Lemire is going to give us something truly special to close out his excellent post-apocalyptic tale of humans and hybrids.
So that's some of the books you should be on the look out for this week, and this is how the Previews column is evolving. What are your thoughts? Any books grabbing your eye? And how are the sections treating you? Helpful? Not? This is done with your reading in mind, so let me know how it's treating you!
