New This Week In Comics 3/23-3/28

It’s the last week of comics for the month and to be honest I had nothing on my pull list. Fear not I still picked up books for this week’s mini reviews. This is a television themed week for the books. Let’s not waste any time and dive into this short week of books.

Powers #2
Written by Brian Michael Bendis Art by Michael Avon Oeming
So if you guys haven’t figured it out by now I’m a fan of Bendis’ dating back to his early volumes of Powers. I overly excited last month when the first issue of the new series came out and even more so when I found issue two on the shelf. The book focuses on two homicide detectives Deena Pilgram and Enki Sunrise who are investigating a mass murder including some of the richest men. After visiting the morgue they are given a list of suspects one of which is an interesting genius by the name of Dr. Pincus. We also follow former cop and former Power Christian Walker who has fell on some hard times and gotten himself in a sticky situation. Bendis has some amazing creator owned work in the Icon brand through Marvel and this is one of my favorites. There are over 12 volumes of the story out there in trade form as well as a new television show on the Playstation Network. ┬áDon’t be afraid to jump into the story with this new series you learn enough about the characters to treat it as a true number one or you can get caught up in trade. Whatever you do just make sure you pick up Powers at your local comic book store!

Written by Rob Williams Art by Simon Fraser

This is the first month my local comic shop (Max Toys and Games) started carrying Doctor Who comics. While I have been reading the 12th Doctor since the series began last fall I hadn’t started any of the other series. Since we had the books I figured why not give Matt Smith’s Doctor Who comic some love even though it was in the later part of the run and I’m glad I did. In this issue the Doctor has gone mad and taken over SERVEYOUINC a small planet. He has put in strict rules of no stories and no creativity so that there would be no war. If your thinking that doesn’t sound like the Doctor we know and love well your right. His companions Alice and Jones have taken up alternate names. Jones is a super hero Xavi Moonburst and well Alice is none other then the Doctor. With the help of a back up brain of the real Doctor they go to save the day. The more Doctor Who comics I read the more I regret not getting on board sooner. They are fun stories to expand on the episodes of the show we love so much. Needless to say I’m hooked and will be picking up all the Doctor books from here on out if your a fan of the show you should as well.
