Have you been looking for the next best thing to read? Overwhelmed by your options in the comic book store? Comic guru Mike Zapcic offers his recommendations in comic book reading from this Wednesday’s new releases.
X-MEN GOLD #15
“In the penultimate chapter of ‘Mojo Worldwide’, inter-dimensional sleazeball Mojo continues his takeover of Manhattan, forcing the combined bulk of Kitty Pryde and her X-Men to take their fight to the enemy’s own home, Mojoworld.”
DARK NIGHTS: BATMAN LOST #1
“In this tie-in to the ongoing Dark Nights: Metal event, Bruce Wayne is lost in the Dark Multiverse, trapped in memories of his past and given a lesson on what it means to defy the wrath of the demon, Barbatos. For Batman, that’s bad news, but for readers, it’s a trip down memory lane through some of Batman’s greatest hits throughout writer Scott Snyder’s run and dives even deeper into the Batman mythos as Batman is forced to look all the way back to his very first case.”
KONG ON THE PLANET OF THE APES #1
“In a fan-demanded crossover event, Dr. Zaius, General Ursus (of the first The Planet of the Apes film from 1968) and company find a unique artifact in the Forbidden Zone: the corpse of a 50-foot ape. Taking his best and brightest scientists, plus a bunch of aggressive simians, Dr. Zaius sets sail for… wait for it… Skull Island!”
