ADVANCE SCOUT: 6 Books to Look For This Wednesday (1/2/13)

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!


New Avengers (2012) #1 cover by Jock“NEW AVENGERS #1”

The companion title to Hickman’s terrific Avengers series, and the book the writer calls “the most important book in the Marvel Universe” hits stands this week. Black Panther takes center stage as he joins the Illuminati, the Marvel Universe’s elite.

The first issue received widespread acclaim, with Mike Mignola doing some of his most carefully detailed art in years. If the second issue keeps pace, this series is shaping up to be a gorgeous read.
