5. Nova #3
Currently, Nova is one of my favorite books on the market. It’s a great, fun story, about a younger hero discovering his powers. In a way, it’s sort of Spider-Man esque. While I really loved the first two issues, they did suffer from being slightly cliched and formulaic. Hopefully, issue #3 will change that, and really get into the new Nova’s adventures. There is no doubt in my mind, though, that even if those issues are not fixed immediately, the book will continue to be a lot of fun to read.
Red Hood & the Outlaws has kind of been a crapshoot. Sometimes, as with the past two issues, we get lucky, and get some great issues. Other times, Scott Lobdell screws us over and gives us issues that are complete garbage. However, with issue #19, James Tynion is taking over the book. And I’m excited. I love his work on Talon and in the Batman back ups, so seeing him on Red Hood & the Outlaws gives me a lot of hope for the book.
3. House of Gold and Bones #1
Ever since this was announced, I’ve been super excited for Corey Taylor’s comic book based on the latest Stone Sour album. Being a big fan of both his bands, Slipknot and Stone Sour, reading this is a no brainer, at least for me. The story behind the House of gold and Bones double concept album is great in the music, so there’s really no reason why the comic shouldn’t be great as well.
2. Daredevil #25
In issue #25, the big Daredevil villain is finally going to come out of the shadows. You know, the one that’s basically made his life crap for most of the series? For a huge fan of the series, it’s hard not to be excited about this reveal. Personally, I’m hoping it’s someone new. Sure, a recognizable villain would be cool, but why not add a new character to Daredevil’s rogue gallery?
1. Justice League #19
On the heels of the War with Atlantis, we’re now moving into the Trinity War, which begins in June. However, until then, we get Justice League issues that are more filler. Still, there’s no reason they can’t be good. Issue #19 brings Superman to the forefront, and this is great, especially since his character has never really gotten the time he deserves in this book. Coupled with Action Comics #19, this could end up being a month of great Superman stories.
