Suicide Squad Rebirth #1 (DC Comics)
You may or may not know, but the Suicide Squad movie hits this week. So what better time to roll out Suicide Squad Rebirth, the latest DC Rebirth special to grab new readers? DC is well aware of the added interest on the Suicide Squad now, and they’ve tapped Rob Williams and Phillip Tan to write and draw the new series. Legendary artist Jim Lee (yes, that Jim Lee), will be handling the regular issues as well, but let’s be honest, asking him to handle the Rebirth issue and the first issue was never going to happen (I’ll be amazed if he’ll be able to handle the first issue to be honest).

Marvel Studios’ Daredevil has finally hit Netflix, and by now, you’ve probably either started the series or already binged through every episode available to you. So what now? With no news on a season two just yet, you’ll have to sit tight until AKA Jessica Jones hits (or a few weeks until Age of Ultron releases). But if you’re still jonesing for more Daredevil, then you’re in luck, cause there’s plenty of fantastic stories featuring Matt Murdock just waiting for you.

Luckily, all of the following Daredevil stories I’m listing to you are easily accessible, and awesome.
Second only to Star Wars, Spider-Gwen’s solo series is probably the most-hyped #1 to hit the stands this year. The first appearance of the Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman in Edge of Spider-Verse #2 has gone though multiple printings, and the character has already become a favorite of the Internet. With this much hype, there’s no way the book could live up to the lofty expectations people have for it, right? Read the rest of this entry
Ant-Man #1 (Marvel Comics)
Ant-Man is starting to become a pretty big deal for Marvel Comics. As you may or may not know, there’s a movie coming out (look, there’s even a trailer), and with that means that Marvel is going to start pumping the character up in the comic book circle. Of course, this means the start of a regular ongoing series for the diminutive hero, but before you turn away, it should be worth noting that this series features a creative team of Ramon Rosanas on art, and Nick Spencer on writing duties, which puts Ant-Man #1 in the category of “must read”, since Spencer’s Superior Foes of Spider-Man was one of my favorite titles of the past year. In fact, a lot of Ant-Man fits right in with Spencer’s previous series. Read the rest of this entry
The wait is over: Grant Morrison’s magnum opus, Multiversity, is finally on the shelf. This alternate universe-spanning tale has been building in Morrison’s brain for ten years, and now, it’s finally out. Multiversity #1, drawn by Ivan Reis, is the first in a series of one-shots that will tell the whole Multiversesity tale. But with so much hype around this issue, is it any good? Hell, is it even readable? Read the rest of this entry
