New Comic Picks – Week of May 17, 2023

Lots of great Marvel comics this week! Be sure to check out your local comic shop if any of these interest you. 

Scarlet Witch (2023) #5

By: Steve Orlando, Russel Dauterman

I’m super excited for this one- Scarlet Witch is one of the most powerful heroes in the MCU. I’m currently working on reviewing each of the comics in this series, and the first review will be released tomorrow! Stay tuned…

Just when the Scarlet Witch thinks she’s shielded Darcy Lewis from their new enemy’s vendetta, Scythia returns – covered in armor made from the same antimagic rock Wanda’s been studying. Can Wanda defend Darcy – and herself – against a warrior who’s immune to magic?

Hulk Annual 1 (2023) #1

By: David Pepose, Gary Frank

A brand new Hulk series! What could be more exciting?

HULK VS. GIGANTO! A documentary crew is on the hunt for a monster at the heart of a gamma radiation leak, but they get much more than they bargained for when they end up on Hulk’s angry side – and caught in the middle of a brawl between two unstoppable giants, as Hulk battles an unleashed Giganto! Plus: A special preview, exclusive to this issue, of the shocking new direction Hulk is headed in this summer! 

Guardians of the Galaxy (2023) #2

By: Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, Kev Walker, Marco Checchetto

I’m super excited for this one! I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 when it came out and I can’t reccomend it enough. It was kind of sad, which I didn’t expect from a Marvel movie, but it was super awesome! Honestly, it was a great way to end the trilogy.

The Guardians are caught in the middle of a civil war! Will the Guardians be able to stop it, or was it already lost from the start? Grootfall is coming, and it does not take sides…!

The Avengers (2023) #1

By: Jed Mackay, C.F. Villa, Stuart Immonen

The Avengers have new writers! I’m eager to see what they do with this series.

The Star. The Icon. The Witch. The Construct. The God. The Engineer. The King. The world is ever in peril, and a new team of Avengers mobilizes to meet any dangers that dare threaten the planet. But when TERMINUS attacks, a new and insidious danger rears its head: one that the Avengers know all too well, and one that comes to them in the most dangerous of guises – that of a friend.

Fantastic Four (2022) #7

By: Ryan North, Iban Coello

While this issue is only #7 in the series, it’s also the 700th Fantastic Four comic! The writers have gone all-out for this issue and it’s sure to be a good one.

It’s an over-sized spectacular as the Fantastic Four reach their new home – not knowing that a mysterious threat has made it there first! As their knowledge of LANGUAGE ITSELF begins to melt from their minds, the Four are in disarray as their existence hangs in the balance… …and the greatest villain of all time finally seals their DOOM.

She-Hulk (2022) #13

By: Rainbow Rowell, Andres Genolet, Jen Bartel

In the last issue, She-Hulk’s law practice was in danger! This time, I’m interested to see what plays out. 

She-Hulk’s new villain makes a big move that throws Jen for the loop of her life. Plus, Patsy Walker, also known as Hellcat, returns to help Jen set everything straight.
