This Week’s Must Read: Star Wars #2
I was blown away by how good Marvel’s Star Wars #1 turned out. Right off the bat the issue felt like the beginning of a film, kicking off the next chapter (after Episode IV: A New Hope) in Luke, Leia, and Han’s adventure. Jason Aaron manages to capture the characters’ voices perfectly, and Cassaday’s art is pretty good considering he has the arduous task of copying such recognizable actors’ appearances. Plus, the first issue gave us an amazing action sequence in where Vader used some hapless Stormtroopers as human shields and that was absolutely brilliant. Give me more Star Wars #2!

This Week’s Must Read: Lady Killer #2
It is either feast or famine for my pull list these days. This week has a lot of issues to be excited about, but the one issue I’m most excited for is Lady Killer #2. I absolutely loved the first issue, from the art to how it sunk its hooks in hard. With the way that the first issue ended, I can’t wait to see where issue #2 goes.

Pull List: AArrow: Season 2.5 #12 (Digital), Green Arrow #39, Injustice: Gods Among Us – Year Three #19 (Digital), Knights Of The Dinner Table #217, Red Sonja: Vulture’s Circle #2, Star Wars #2, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #2
This Week’s Must Read: Superman #38
The first collaboration between Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr comes to a close with this issue. And it’s been a truly surprising story as well as one of the best Superman stories in recent memory. If you haven’t been reading this book lately, be sure to grab the trade once it comes out. Even those comic fans who don’t usually like the Big Blue Boy Scout will get a kick out of this one.
