Vin’s Picks: Week of June 11

Posted on 14 June 2012 by VinnieAve

If you are a long time reader of All Geeks Considered you know that we try to have a weekly comics article. When I say try I mean every few months either Diego or I try to do a run down of what we liked this week. I’m trying again. I want to do this every Wednesday night. Let’s see where this goes.

Batman #10: Twitter lost its shit over this one. It was good and there is a major twist. I think that this will have a major effect on the Bat-family but that hasn’t happened yet, I want to see what they do with it over the next few months.

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre 1 of 4: Last week we had Minutemen and I thought that was terrible, this week we have Silk Spectre which is by no means great or visionary but there are some things that I liked about this, first is the great cover by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts. This was the high point of the book for me (and the one thing that I really liked this week). We get some good moments of what it feels like to be a teenage girl and it makes us realize that this is not just a superhero book but actually about Laurie.

Avengers vs. X-Men: VS: 3 of 6: This book continues to be one of the dumbest books put out but I enjoy it each time. Personally the fights are fun to read and while there is really no character development or story development it can be really fun to see two character just duke it out. This is not for anyone but the nerdiest of comic book readers.

Conan the Barbarian #5: The Argos Deception Part 2: We actually get to see a part of the deception this week. Sadly this is hard to suggest since it is the second part of a three part story. It’s a pretty standard set-up to a Conan finale. I will be back for sure in 2 months hopefully telling you to pick up Conan the Barbarian #7 which will be part of a new story.
