8.01.12 Releases

There’s only two sure buys for me this week, which will be X-Men #33 (Marvel) and Mind MGMT #3 (Dark Horse). Brian Wood’s X-Men run is shaping up to be one of the only intelligent runs for the property in recent memory, and David Lopez’s art has a level of consistency and intricacy you don’t often see in corporate cape comics. Meanwhile, Matt Kindt’s new series is the culmination of his long love affair with spycraft and watercolor ink washes, finally hitting prime time in a more mainstream-y package. I won’t be buying it, but if you were a fan of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Immortal Iron Fist run (and really, who wasn’t?) then I’d point you toward their new collaboration with Hawkeye #1 (Marvel). As for the maybe pile, I might try to give this series one more chance by checking out Mind The Gap #3 (Image), and I’m interested in the debut of two other new Image books, as their bid for best publisher of the year continues. Harvest #1 (Image) from AJ Lieberman and Colin Lorimer promises some sort of organ trafficking intrigue, while Think Tank #1 (Image) from Matt Hawkins, Rahsan Ekedal, and Brian Reber looks like big brainy fun. At this point, I’m always on the lookout for new/weird/different, so both look promising.
