A Comic Show – From Axis Inversion To Image Incantation

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, writes:

Hey Fandom! I'm back with a fat stack of New Comics Now! Image won the week, but Axis and Spider-Verse also made me smile.

Tooth & Claw #1 is like Game of Thrones meets Animal Planet. I know that sounds corny, but Kurt Busiek knows fantasy and wrote a compelling anthropomorphic sorcery world, with a great champion that may be very relatable. Benjamin Dewey's art would make this worth reading even if it wasn't written by a master of the craft. Birthright #2 by Joshua Williamson was even better than #1, and #1 was a 9 out of 10! Seriously, try this book, you won't be disappointed. Williamson's Nailbiter #7 guest-stars Brian Michael Bendis! Really, I can't say enough about Joshua Williamson, he's on fire and Robert Kirkman has taken notice. You should too.

For DC, I only felt compelled to talk about JL 3000 with Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, Swamp Thing, and the final issue of Superman Unchained.

Axis #4 features Kluh, the inversion of Hulk. He's still the strongest, but you won't like him cuz he's sad. Spider-Verse part 1, and Spider-Verse Team-up #1 are both out and both fun. I don't care about the antagonists at all, but damn it's cool to see all these Spider-Men together. It's like Exiles, but with a Spider Corps. Death of Wolverine has a Life after Logan bar brawl one shot, and Charles Soule's The Weapon X Program #1 is the essential follow up to Death of Wolverine #4.
