This Week’s Must Read: Zodiac Starforce #4 [Review]
I’ve been a big fan of Zodiac Starforce from the start. It’s got everything I love in a magical girl series: great costumes, cool powers, and strong friendships between a diverse group of girls who just get each other. The series wraps up its debut arc in this issue and there’s been no official word on whether there’ll be any more. So if you love a book where friends come together to do battle with evil while wearing brightly colored costumes tailored to their specific tastes and powers, then ask your local comic ship for Zodiac Starforce #1-4, please! Or you can grab ’em digitally, if that’s how you roll.
Pull List: Adventures of Supergirl #2 (Digital), All New Wolverine #5, Arrow: The Dark Archer #3 (Digital), Batman/Superman #29, Black Canary #8, Constantine: The Hellblazer #9, Descender #10, Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor: Year Two #2, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five #8 (Digital), Leaving Megalopolis: Surviving Megalopolis #2
This Week’s Must Read: Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Two #6
Ever since Titan Comics took over the Doctor Who license, they’ve delivered some truly amazing comics across the line. But if pressed to pick one as the best, I’d have to go with The Tenth Doctor series. The artwork by Elena Casagrande has been consistently excellent for the longest time. And writer Nick Abadzis has built wonderfully on the original mythology of the show, constructing his own unique cast while utilizing that which has come before. This issue is the culmination of all that hs come so far, with the adventures of The Doctor colliding with a side-story involving Captain Jack Harkness, all of which is coming about because of the consequences of the end of the first year of this series. Despite this, Abadzis does a great job making every issue accessible to new readers, so pick this one up if you haven’t given this series a shot yet.
Buy these comics at your local comic book store (Don’t know where that is? Here you go.), from Things From Another Universe, or digitally via Comixology.com.
