This Week’s Must Read: The Wicked + The Divine #7
Super light pull for me this week, but it’s all right because that means I can focus all my attention on The Wicked + The Divine #7. It should comes as no surprise I’m very invested in this series and will recommend till the day I die. WicDiv for life! With Ragnarok looming, there are still two more gods of the Pantheon we’ve yet to meet and surely one of them will have information for Laura about Luci, Ananke, and her own new abilities. But even if there aren’t any major revelations in #7, whatever happens will undoubtedly prove crucial. WicDiv‘s second arc is only getting started, and you’ll need to keep up in order to be there for wherever Fandamonium takes us!

This Week’s Must Read: Earth 2: World’s End #16
For the most part I’ve enjoyed this weekly book as it ties several DC series together. Where Futures End has failed to sustain interest, Daniel H. Wilson and Marguerite Bennett have given Earth 2: World’s End a good pace, integrating the characters readers want, and have overall kept the story interesting. While Darkseid and Apokolips may be the main attraction, the authors have brought together Earth 2’s Avatars to combat Apokolips’s threat in this issue. This interesting role for the Avatars should bring some excitement to a concept – the weekly series – that may already be growing old.

This Week’s Must Read: Arrow: Season 2.5 #11 (Digital)
It’s oddly fitting that as Oliver Queen disappears from the Arrow TV series for a time that this comic should likewise shift focus on other characters. In this case, the issue centers upon John Diggle, and after months of teasing in Arrow 2.5’s back-up stories we’re finally getting a full-length Suicide Squad comic worthy of the name. With a script by Arrow writer Keto Shimizu and amazing, realistic artwork by Szymon Kudranski, this comic will appeal to fans of military action comics as well as fans of the show.
Buy these comics at your local comic book store (Don’t know where that is? Here you go.) or digitally via Comixology.com.
