This Week’s Must Read: Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four Annual #1
Despite having already had its ending spoiled by last week’s first issue of Injustice Year Five, I’m still looking forward to this issue for one simple reason – the return of Tom Taylor for one more story in the series that cemented his place among the A-List of today’s hottest comic creators. Nobody expected this series to be half as good as it was and while the book is still great under Brian Buccelatto’s pen, Taylor wrote some of the best stories in recent memory involving Green Arrow, Black Canary and Harley Quinn in their classic forms. I can’t wait to see what he does with this story involving a super-villain jailbreak orchestrated by a most unlikely hero.

This Week’s Must Read: Amazing Spider-Man #6
Even though I’ve been pretty annoyed with how Secret Wars continues to drag on well past Marvel resetting the universe, I’m a sucker for Dan Slott’s Spider-Man and he’s done a decent job of drawing readers into Spidey’s new situation as a global super-hero. Spidey’s been dealing with the threat of Zodiac, an international terrorist group while trying to run a global corporation and work for S.H.I.E.L.D. Those plot lines are compelling enough, however, Slott has also added in the resurfacing of Norman Osborn. There’s a lot going on in this series, but it’s well worth your time.
