Happy New Comic Books Day! Here are the comic book covers and stories we found intriguing this week.
Loved the cover. The heroes of the Ultimate Universe are desperate to track down their collective enemy before he/she/it strikes again! This mystery is at the backbone of the Ultimate Universe and will have major ramifications on the future of the entire line.
Gail Simone brings us Secret Six #20. Catman heads off to the African continent to find the three men who kidnapped his long lost son! He’s been pushed to the very limit, so when the rest of the Secret Six come to his aid, don’t be surprised if Catman decides to kill off his teammates as well!
Meet three certified geeks: a self-loathing journalist who has a seemingly normal girlfriend, a conspiracy theorist who still lives with his mother and an unemployed gamer who lives in his car. These strangely likable misfits find that dark personal secrets can sometimes be a virtue in OTHER LIVES, a hilarious original graphic novel by award-winning creator Peter Bagge (Hate). The story also explores people’s identities, both real and created, and how the two become confused and conflated through the Internet and role-playing games.
