Sorry cats and kittens I missed last week mostly because I only read one book, and there wasn’t much material for a wrap up. Alas I’m here this week with a slew of books and my own dry witty self.
Cyberforce #1 free
This is a book that’s free because of a successful Kickstarter campaign which just warms my gin soaked heart or is that my liver , or I don’t know it makes me all tingly ok. So here is a chance to get sucked in with the first five issues free and available same day as print so it’s a must pick up. I don’t know much about the original Cyber Force but this is a super hero book with a lot of technology and robots mixed in so I’m good for this first few. Plus you know its free you big babies so why even need me to tell you.
Pick of the week 10/10/12
Uncanny Avengers #1 $3.99
Written by: Rick Remender
Art by: John Cassaday
Uggh I am turning in to a Marvel Zombie and it’s a runaway train taken hostage by bloated John Travolta and there is no stopping it. Seriously I am the worst kind of Marvel zombie because I preach new ip’s and smaller publishers and these are my picks its shameful. As you know even though I read AvX I did not like it much and was glad it was done because the obligation was over. Then I got this the book was really well done , still some inconsistencies in art but not nearly as rushed as the previous books.
The basic premise is they are building the Uncanny team and looking for it’s leader to help Professor X’s dream live on. Plus there is the subplot of what to do with those X-Men that turned on the world. A good #1 that wasn’t too much origin story trappings and I look forward to the next one to see how it starts to move.
Ultimate Comics X-Men #17 $3.99
Written by: Brian Wood

This book is in the middle of the United We Stand event I really don’t think this books stands out above the rest or anything its just that I am really liking the Ultimate universe and this a good story line. If you want to know about this issue the easiest way to explain it is Kitty Pryde had her Braveheart moment and business is about to pick up (and a wink to my editor) which makes me excited to get the next issue.
Also an honorable mention out this week is All Fall Down and I’m excited for it because #1 was so good plus it’s only a dollar plus Becoming #3 which furthers my love for Arcana from a few weeks ago. I’ve said it before and I will say it again the beauty of digital is if you see something you like in the store and have the funds just pick it up it reminds of being a kid and just buying stuff off the shelf because of the cover , trust me it’s a lot more fun to be surprised.
