New Comics This Week 1/12-1/18

While things are tons of new comics that hit the shelf this week including Star Wars and Mortal Kombat X. We decided to focus on three titles this week that may not get all the attention. While all of these are Marvel books you may have missed them, so lets dive right in!

S.H.I.E.L.D #2
Written by Mark Waid Art by Humberto Ramos


What do you get when Agent Jemma Simmons goes undercover in Kamala Khan’s high school? You get S.H.I.E.L.D. issue 2! A secret mission has lead Simmons and Agent Coulson to investigate some black market sales in Jersey City. This is when things get a little out of control and they require the help of Ms. Marvel! If you have been reading the Ms. Marvel title which released last year you know Kamala is a fan girl at heart and it truly shows in this issue. Waid is doing an amazing job writing this series and the art from Ramos in this issue is fantastic! It almost makes me wish he was doing the art on the Ms. Marvel series as well. This comic seems to follow the “freak of the week” format that the show follows. This is great for people who want to randomly pick up the book. While this comic is based on the characters from the ABC hit Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. you don’t have to be watching to enjoy this book.

Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #9
Written by Brian Micheal Bendis Art by David Marquez


As Spider-Man fans we must admit it took us awhile to accept the Ultimate Universe and Miles Morales but he has finally captured our hearts. In this issue Mile’s father is back and is telling him about his days working with the King Pin as an undercover agent for S.H.I.E.L.D. He explains to Miles why he left and much more. Bendis’ writing on this title has been an exciting roller coaster. This title has everything from the return of Peter Park and the Green Goblin to Miles sharing his secret. If you are a fan of the webhead you really need to be reading Miles’ book as well!

Spider-Verse #2
Written by Kathryn Immonen, Jed Mackay, Enrique Puig & Dan Slott Art by Kris Anka, David Lafuente, Sheldon Vella, Francisco  Herrara & Ty Templeton


Our journey to meet every Spider-Man ever is finally starting to wrap up. This final issue of the mini-series introduces to four more spiders and even pokes at few who aren’t included. Their are some great beats in this comic, literally. Mackay writes a story of the punk rock spider in true punk fashion with are by Vella. This was the hit of this issue outside of Slott poking fun at the Broadway musical Turn Off the Dark, The Electric Company Spider-Man and the Sony-Verse. With only six comics to go in Spider-Verse this comic really makes you excited for whats coming out next week.
