Pick for This Week, List for Next

Okay, this week I read through:

Spidey, Elektra, New Avengers, Avengers: Init., Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, X-Force, The Hood, Gotham Gazette, Green Lantern, Usagi, Ghost Rider, Wolverine: Origins, Old Man Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy, Aliens and Spidey's Short Halloween. My pick for this week?

Tough one...

Right now, it's New Avengers and Moon Knight in equal first. Very close behind that is Amazing Spidey, Elektra and Gotham Gazette.

While I dug how nicely Moon Knight wrapped up what has been a pretty fuckin' rad story by Mike Benson, New Avengers just had so many "moments" that I count as awesome. Spidey's "Power Man and Iron Fist" jab was hilarious, and Bucky Cap's sniping was very slick, and for some reason I dug the hell outta Hellstrom and his cockiness.
Joe Kelly's dialogue in Spidey was fantastic, and I always love the Spiderman/Wolverine "moments" too, and there's a great one here. Spidey's confrontation with Norman in the Dark Reign era is something I've been waiting to see for a while now, and this was pretty damn good. Not perfect, but the start of that sequence is fantastic, as is Norman's dialogue.
Elektra has just been a fantastic read all round, and this issue really started building some intrigue (I love intrigue). Gotham Gazette, while I haven't really been enjoying Battle for the Cowl, I did like the way this sorta wrapped it up and kicked things off from this point on. I hope Vale will have a bigger part in things from this point on though. She was great here.

Anyway, here's my list for this coming week, with a prediction for the pick:

Agents of Atlas #6
Amazing Spider-Man #596
Black Panther #5
Dark Avengers #5
Dark Avengers #5 pham incentive
Deadpool Suicide Kings #3
Mighty Avengers #25
New Avengers The Reunion #4 (of 4)
Thunderbolts #131 2nd print
Timestorm 2009-2099 Spider-Man
Ultimate Spider-Man #133
Ultimatum #4
War of Kings #4

Batman and Robin #1

Muppet Show #3

I'm thinking it'll be toss between Dark Avengers, Spidey and Batman and Robin. Leaning towards Dark Avengers though, based purely off the previous issues and the preview Marvel put out there.
