New Comic Wednesday: Jared’s Picks for June 6th

New Comic Wednesday: Jared’s Picks for June 6th

A new beginning from Earth’s greatest team, Ant-Man and the Wasp reunite, and Bendis sets up the future of Superman on this edition of New Comic Wednesday.

After some down time, it’s time to get back into looking into the latest new comics. I have three comics for New Comic Wednesday that I want to dig in to with you guys. So, if you are a comic fan, strap in and let’s go.

Ant-Man and the Wasp #1

Written by Mark Waid

Art by Javi Garron

It’s been almost two years since the Astonishing Ant-Man ended and Scott Lang is finally back in the pages of his own book and Nadia Pym is coming with him. Scott has become one of my favorite characters in comics and Nadia has become a great character in her own right. It’s very shocking to me that they have yet to meet and am so excited to see how their personalities clash.Nadia is very by the book and serious while Scott tends to improvise a lot and loves to joke around and have fun.

If Nick Spencer couldn’t come back to write Scott then I’m glad Marvel got Mark Waid for this title. Waid excels at writing these types of characters and as the creator of Nadia, Waid is the natural choice for this book. I mainly know Garron from his work on the Inhumans and X-Men so I’m excited to see what he can do in the Quantum Realm. If you are looking for an intro into the world of Ant-Man and the Wasp in anticipation for the movie than this is the perfect jumping on point.

Justice League #1

Written by Scott Snyder

These past two years have been rough on the Justice League. After disappointing arc and disappointing arc, the Justice League have finally gotten some help in the form of comic legends Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung. These two have been a major part of so many famous stories over the years whether it be Snyder’s historic run on Batman or Cheung’s Illuminati comic.

Snyder has shown he knows and understands Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman throughout his career but the addition that makes me most excited is Martian Manhunter is finally back where he belongs. In the recent, No Justice story arc Snyder showed he gets Martian Manhunter and after his long comic hiatus, I couldn’t be more excited! He is also bringing both John Stewart and Hawkgirl to the team and I’m very excited to see what roles they fill.

Lastly, after years of middling villains, the readers have no interest in Snyder is bringing the Legion of Doom back to the comic world. Snyder showed on both Superman Unchained and No Justice that he can write Lex Luthor and his work on Joker is legendary but what I’m most excited about is to see how he writes Black Manta, Grodd, and my third favorite character of all time Thaal Sinestro. If you pick up any book this week it has to be this one, it’s going to be a wild ride.

The Man of Steel #2

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Art by Evan Shaner

When it was first announced that famed Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis was coming to DC and taking over the Superman titles I was upset. Peter Tomasi, Patrick Gleeson, and Dan Jurgens have all done incredible work with the Superman family and I wanted more from their runs. I gave Man of Steel #1 a chance because I love most of Bendis’s Marvel work and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed his rendition of Superman but my big takeaway from issue one was how Bendis nailed the Clark Kent persona. Clark was perfect and gave the perfect amount of hope that I expect from a Superman title. Art for this issue is being handled by Evan Shaner and he is quickly becoming the go-to artist for a classic feel. This arc is the set up for the next year of Superman stories so pick it up now!

Thanks for reading and check back next week for my list of the comics that you need to be picking up!
