Light Week? Try Rocketeer Adventures #4, Secret Avengers #16, & The New Teen Titans Omnibus HC Vol. 1

Boy, is it ever a light week.

Josh says try…

Rocketeer Adventures #4

By Dave Gibbons, Joe Pruett, John Arcudi, Scott Hampton, Tony Harris & Brenadan McCarthy

While the world is watching to see what Johns and Lee do over on the big DC flagship, some masters of the artform will quietly close up what was one of the best mini-series of the year. Just like the previous issues, you could read this one on its own and be just fine. More than fine really, because you’ll get three short stories brimming with fun and adventure if the last three issues are to be believed. Suit up, and don’t miss out. Plus, that cover? Alex Ross over Dave Stevens. Yowza.


Ron says try…

Secret Avengers #16

By Warren Ellis & Jamie McKelvie

I’ve been pretty hard on this title since it began. I just didn’t see the purpose after the first few issues of it, and it was clear Ed Brubaker didn’t either as he bailed pretty quick.  So how do you rope me back into a faltering title? Bring in an A-List creative team, and that’s what we get here with Warren Ellis and Jamie McKelvie.  It simply just doesn’t get better than this. Ellis and McKelvie have promised a lot of action and I can’t wait to see it all on the page. Especially since it’s colored by Matthew Wilson too.

The New Teen Titans Omnibus HC Vol. 1

By Marv Wolfman, George Perez, & Others

400+ pages of pure, unadulterated 1980s comics goodness from two of the masters of the game: Marv Wolfman and George Perez. Before they remade the DC Universe in Crisis on Infinite Earths, Wolfman and Perez turned a book about a bunch of sidekicks and C level characters into the most popular book at DC Comics and the second most popular book in all of comics (behind only Claremont and Byrne’s Uncanny X-Men).


  1. Is this really a light considering we will witness the relaunch of the DCU. I may be wrong, but I’m just sayin’.

  2. DC is only putting out 2 books this week.

  3. Secret Avengers was continuously terrible since day 1…definitely one of the worst books Marvel put out in years. This new creative team certainly is promising.

  4. also worth checking out….. Boom! Studios the Rinse #1, and Planet of the Ape #5, the only cost $1 EACH

  5. Just sayin’ is my line first of all!! Anyway; The Secret Avengers is horrible an I dropped it almost right away.

    Just sayin’,


  6. I don’t know. Its like saying if the Dark Knight Rises is the only movie to be released on the weekend of July 20, 2012, that its a light weekend.

    • If that was the only movie coming out in a weekend then it would indeed be a light weekend.

      (Keep in mind that not everyone is interested in the New DCU just as not everyone will be interested in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.)

    • I guess just my excitement over the relaunch that is preventing me from being objective. But you’re right in saying not everyone is excited about the New DCU ( Shame, I say!!! SHAME!!!!). Only kidding folks. To each their own.

    • saying it’s a light weeks doesn’t mean quality or hype, it simply means quantity.

  7. Been waiting for that new teen titans. Either i wait till Christmas or i don’t get hardly any of the new 52 books. damn.

  8. i’ll be getting titans during the holidays, but i will be getting secret avengers this week.

  9. Here is hoping for more IDW books going digital via comixology or – would love to read through GI JOE, Locke and Key and Rocketeer on a tablet…

  10. Secret Avengers has had it’s ups and downs, but so far as I know, it’s the only title this year that’s featured Giant Abe Lincoln punching robots. Definitely getting the Ellis take on the book. Also thanks for the reminder about the Rocketeer. The issue I picked up was really fun.

  11. The Rocketeer mini has been wonderful. I sure hope we get more in the future.

  12. Teen titans 400 plus pages? Plus 284. it is 684 pages as it’s contents have improved since solicited.
