Jordan's Picks of the Week!!

X-Men Prime #1 This book is the first of what I’ve just realized are all one shots this week. I promise this was a coincidence, this is just what looked good. X-Men Prime is the catalyst that will lead to several upcoming X-Men books for this year. We have the makings of Weapon X, X-Men Gold, and X-Men Blue. So, knowing that new X-Men books were coming soon, I wanted to get a place marker for where we are with the mutants. So, having not read the X-Men vs. Inhumans, and let’s face it, the X-Men mythos can be a...

Chet's Pick of the Week

Chet here again, with my pick of the week for Packrat Comics. This week I'm picking up the newest EC title, "Tales from the Crypt" (Volume 3) #2!!

Read This Comic! The Amazing Spider-Man #25 This is a thick issue of Spider-Man, true believers. And boy, does it offer plenty to read. In addition to the main story, the first part of “The Osborn Identity,” there are quite a few back up stories ranging in tone and subject. But let’s start with the focus of the issue. The Osborne Identity sees the return of, you guessed it, Norman Osborne, who continues to give Peter the slip. This story also features a surprise return of a classic Spidey character. I am a big fan of Dan Slott’s writing, and...

Chet's Pick! American Gods #1

American Gods #1 Here it is folks, The new Neil Gaiman title from Dark Horse Comics AMERICAN GODS#1:Based off a Neil Gaiman novel (probably so that you can say you read the original book), AG #1 tells the story of one Mr. Shadow Moon getting in and out of the Big house(that's jail) and trying to adapt to the sudden loss of his wife. The reader gets drawn in slowly, but it was a fast ride once I actually got hooked into the story.  Anyways Scott Hamptln did a nice job with the art for AG. His drawings give the...

Supergirl #7 Let me start by saying this is the first issue of the DC Universe Rebirth Supergirl that I’ve read. It can a risk to jump into an ongoing title, but with this issue, I didn’t have too much trouble. The basic premise is Supergirl exploring the memories of a Kryptonian named Lar-On. From what I gathered, she’s trying to cure him being a werewolf. And, admittedly, Kryptonian werewolf is a pretty cool idea. In fact, I was drawn to the cover because of the werewolf and the caption that read “Werewolves of Krypton.”     As I said earlier,...
