Week of March 9

Before we start, you should probably know that the titles Mockingbird #1, Howard the Duck #6, and Doctor Strange #6 from last week’s article actually come out this week. Instead of reposting them here, I’ve decided to just give you some information on some new comics. If you would really like to know about those three comics, I recommend you check out Comics To  Buy This Week from last week. I recommend that you check out Mockingbird and Doctor Strange. Now onto our regularly scheduled article!

The Mighty Thor #5

Official Synopsis: Thor vs Odin. The biggest, meanest, bloodiest Thor/Odin showdown ever. And in the war for Asgard…there will be casualties.

Why You Should Buy This: The Mighty Thor is in my top 5 All-New All-Different Marvel series. The art has been amazing (kudos to Russell Dauterman), the story has been extremely compelling (props to Jason Aaron), and Thor vs Odin is a battle I’ve always wanted to see. If you’re going to only read one comic this week, read this.

The Vision #5

Official Synopsis: The secrets are turning into lies, and the lies are turning into blood. In the midst of this violence, Vision must find the truth of what happened to the Grim Reaper. But when he does, will he protect his family or destroy them? Find out as the story of Vision’s family builds to a breathtaking cliffhanger.

Why You Should Buy This: The Vision is one of Marvel’s most compelling comics out there. It has an element of horror while also feeling like a superhero comic. The story just keeps getting better every issue, and with a cliffhanger promised at the end of the issue, I for one can’t wait to read this.

Ms. Marvel #5

via [Marvel]
Official Synopsis: TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING! Unjustly ousted from the Avengers. Flunking advanced physics. Getting beat by B-team bad guys. Life is a mess for Ms. Marvel. Fed up with failing, Kamala teams up with her old buddy Bruno and creates her own Militia of Ms. Marvel Automatons to help her fight crime and things are finally coming up Kamala again. But is the world ready for this much Ms. Marvel?

Why You Should Buy This: Poor Ms. Marvel. She can’t catch a break. But that still doesn’t change the fact that this book is amazing!

Spider-Gwen #6

Why You Should Buy This: WHY DOES MARVEL LOVE WRITING IN ALL CAPS?!? Spider-Gwen is one of my favorite books because it can make its own universe. They made their own version of Cap and the Goblin. Everyone in this universe is a mirror of who they are in the mainstream Marvel Universe. It’s always so interesting to see who Jason Latour is going to do next.

Avengers STANDOFF tie-ins:

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #3

Official Synopsis: A STANDOFF tie-in! What is the secret of CLASSIFIED and how will it change the Marvel Universe as we know it? Find out in this tie-in to Standoff. Plus: Fitz falls out of a plane without a parachute and the world’s most unexpected Wolverine cameo!

Uncanny Avengers #7

Official Synopsis: A STANDOFF tie-in! The Uncanny Avengers come to the aid of S.H.I.E.L.D. during a manhunt. The team makes a shocking discovery about an ally. What does it all have to do with the mystery unfolding in Pleasant Hill?
