Share

Time for the weekly dose of Comic Book Highlights. This was another great week that delivered some very cool Highlights. Out of the pack this week's highlights Thanos Imperative #2 stood tall and deliver the biggest and best highlights this week. Outside of Thanos Imperative we also had some Super-Dickery from Superman, Phoenix returns (?), a look at Spider-Man's possible future, Penguin having an "interesting" dream, and much more. Hit the jump button to check out all of this week's Comic Book Highlights.

 

COVER OF THE WEEK: GORILLA MAN #1 BY LEONARD KIRK

Gorilla_Man_1_cover_by_Leonard_Kirk

No contest as Gorilla Man is styling and profiling in this cover as he is surrounded by beautiful women. Gorilla Man rules as I'm sure this comic did as well. Very eye catching cover for a comic that looks like it was a lot of fun.

 

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #637

Amazing_Spider-Man_637_1

Looks like the Spider(-Man) is now hunting the Hunters.

 

Amazing_Spider-Man_637_2

A look into Spider-Man's future. It looks like Marvel is referencing JMS run much more now as the costume that Spider-Man is wearing that looks like a jacket looks very similar to a future Spider-Man costume from Amazing Spider-Man #499.

 

Amazing_Spider-Man_637_3

Madame Web passes on her powers to Julia Carpenter and Julia passes on her costume to Arana who looks like is the new Spider-Girl from the rumors.

 

AVENGERS ACADEMY #2

Avengers_Academy_2_1

Looks like someone is very interested in Quicksilver's history. Wonder if it mentions him having a crazy sister.

 

BATMAN #701

Batman_701_1-1

Bruce knows how to survive. Not even a helicopter crash can kill him.

 

Batman_701_2

Bruce knows how to ride in style for his last mission before his death.

 

BIRDS OF PREY #3

Birds_of_Prey_3_1

Penguin sure knows how to have good dreams and Penguin continues to be the only good thing about Birds of Prey even though I like most of the characters on this title.

 

BOOSTER GOLD #34

Booster_Gold_34_1

As I always say, everything is better when we get some dragons in comics.

 

DAREDEVIL #508

Daredevil_508_2

Finally Elektra re-appears! Now things should get even more interesting. Can't wait to see what she does. Will she side with Matt? Will she fight Matt? Or something else? Can't wait to find out.

 

GIRL COMICS #3

Girl_Comics_3_1

Looks like Wolverine finally got his own Wolverinemobile.

 

INVICIBLE IRON MAN #28

Invincible_Iron_Man_28_1

Tony just figured out the best way to not make a one-night stand awkward: erase it from your mind.

 

SUPERMAN #701

Superman_701_1

Instead of almost giving a dude a heartattack why not just lift up a truck or just fly around to show you still have your powers. Or better yet go pick up a pizza from New York City and return in 30 seconds. Remember if its not there in 30 seconds it means Superman doesn't have his powers.

 

Superman_701_2

Come on Superman the kid was just asking you a simple question. And of course you didn't answer the kid's question giving you yet another Super-Dickery moment in an issue that was filled with these type of dumb moments.

 

THANOS IMPERATIVE #2

Thanos_Imperative_2_1

Again Brandon would have put me on a shuttle that was on a one way stop to the sun if I didn't include at least one Silver Surfer moment that happened in Thanos Imperative. Are you happy Brandon? ;)

 

Thanos_Imperative_2_2

Silver Surfer brought his friends along to help save the universe. And next time on "Silver Surfer and His Amazing Friends" they will eradicate Twilight from existences.

 

Thanos_Imperative_2_3

Gamora I love you so much. You are just so awesome.

 

Thanos_Imperative_2_4

Cancerverse Hulk just got pwned by Cosmo. Your a good boy Cosmo.

 

Thanos_Imperative_2_5

This is called Thanos Imperative afterall he had to get his moment to shine by killing the Cancerverse Defenders. What you going to do Cancerverse when Thanos comes after you.

 

Thanos_Imperative_2_6

No Marvel Cosmic Event is complete without some Rocket Raccoon awesomeness.

 

Thanos_Imperative_2_7

Things just went from bad to worse for the 616-Universe which means good things for us.

 

X-MEN: SECOND COMING #2

X-Men_Second_Coming_2_1

Great speech by Hope. This was my favorite scene in the whole issue. Good to see Scott finally showing some emotions after all that has happened and that Hope stepped up and gave a great speech about Cable.

 

X-Men_Second_Coming_2_2

There are two things wrong with this image: 1) Greg Land's "art" and 2) Deadpool. Somehow Marvel was able too combine their worst "artist" and most overrated character in one image. Thanks for turning me off to even considering to picking up Uncanny X-Force.

 

X-Men_Second_Coming_2_3

Looks like the Phoenix is back. That's not good news for Emma.

 

X-Men_Second_Coming_2_4

Looks like Scott was right all along. Suck it Storm and Beast. *DX X chop*
