This is a fun week. Two new #1s on books I really have high hopes for.

Mister Miracle is someone I know absolutely nothing about, but it’s Tom King and Mitch Gerads. On a miniseries. I can’t turn this down.

Redlands is my pick of the week on the show, so check out tomorrow’s episode for my true thoughts. All I can say here is: Jordie Bellaire on writing has my interest very much piqued–I pretty much trust her to do awesome work.

Rose should be interesting this month. The story is slow burning and in a very good way. The art continues to be top notch (Ig Guara) and by #4, Meredith Finch has really come to own her writing. She’s far from a bad writer, but I think it took a few issues to find her voice in this one. I’m really liking it.

Jean Grey continues to be a very fun X-Book. She’s all over the globe talking to all sorts of Marvel characters in a way that doesn’t feel forced. Donny Cates is nailing the writing on this series.
