ADVANCE SCOUT: 5 Books to Look For This Wednesday (3/6/13)

Each week, the Capeless Crew picks out those books that we think are most worthy of your dollars and attention. Without further ado, here are this week’s picks!

GA18Cover“GREEN ARROW #18”
While Green Arrow was one of the more disappointing titles of the New 52 relaunch, the series has been given new life and a new direction since being handed to rising star Jeff Lemire (Animal Man, Sweeth Tooth).  The art alone is worth your dollars, and with Lemire at the helm, the story is sure to be fantastic..

LostVegas#1“LOST VEGAS #1”
Jim  McCann (Mind the Gap) and Janet Lee (Return of the Dapper Men) team up for a thriller of interstellar thievery in a book featuring “one gambler-turned-slave [who] has 24 hours to go all in and pull off the greatest heist the universe has seen”. McCann is entering his own as a writer, and Lost Vegas may be the next big hit from this rising writer.

AgeOfUltron_1_Cover“AGE OF ULTRON #1 (of 12)”
From Brian Michael Bendis and superstar artist Bryan Hitch comes Marvel’s latest event, literally years in the planning.

Marvel newshound Joe Torres took a look inside the planned event back in January, and it looks to be suitably epic enough to earn your interest.

rocketeerCODHC“ROCKETEER: CARGO OF DOOM” (HC)
Veteran comics scribe Mark Waid has been enjoying a renaissance of late, and his partnership with Chris Samnee on last year’s “Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom” is a prime example.

Our own Jeff Hayes placed it “among the best drawn comics on the stands” when it completed in November, and now IDW has collected this fantastic run in an elegant hardcover. While the $24.99 price tag might seem a bit steep at first, once you delve into the story contained within, you’ll find it well worth your time and money.
