I always believed it was the things you don’t choose that makes you who you are. Your city, your neighborhood, your comics. People here take pride in these things, like it was something they’d accomplished. The bodies around their souls, the cities wrapped around those. I lived on this block my whole life; most of these people have. When your job is to find people who are missing, it helps to know where they started. I find the people who started in the cracks and then fell through. This city can be hard. When I was young, I asked my priest how you could get to heaven and still protect yourself from all the evil in the world. He told me what God said to His children. “You are sheep among wolves. Be wise as serpents, yet innocent as doves.”

By Kelly Sue DeConnick & Phil Noto
There may be a whole generation who never have heard of Ghost before and may not remember the character from it’s hey day in the 1990s, but now today, they can be introduced for the first time with a top notch creative team. Kelly Sue DeConnick teams up with Phil Noto, who’s been an art machine of late, to kick off this ongoing series on the right foot.

Captain America #19
By Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting
Well here it is. For the final issue of Ed Brubaker’s monumental run on Captain America, he’s teamed up with Steve Epting, who basically reinvented himself as an artist starting way back when this whole thing started. The numbers and titles have changed, but this is the last hurrah, and the old gang are back together, and these two creators doing this characters are one of the high water marks of superhero comics in the last decade. I’m on board.
Conor says try…
By Greg Rucka, Carmine Di Giandomenico, Matt Hollingsworth, & Joe Caramagna
Greg Rucka is one of my favorite writers and his run on The Punisher ended up being gripping, action packed, and emotionally interesting. As sad as I am to see Rucka go, I’m glad that he got to tell what seemed to be a complete story. And now, Rucka winds up his run on the character with this final five issue mini-series that purports to pit Frank Castle against The Avengers. This should be lots of fun and I’m sure you can jump right in without having read the previous series.
