Death of Wolverine by Charles Soule
Death of Wolverine

P.M. Bradshaw, February 26, 2015

Death is comics is redundant. Except for Captain Marvel (Mar-vell), I can’t think of one character that’s been knocked off that hasn’t eventually been brought back. Captain America and Spider-Man were both killed and brought back recently. Why? We KNOW characters that big aren’t going to stay dead when they can be selling comics! So It was with not a small amount of trepidation that I read Death of Wolverine. I’m not totally convinced how they killed him was the best way (I’m still mad at Captain Kirk falling down and dying on some rocks), but the book overall was very good. Good characterization, good plotting, good artwork. A good story you’ll be glad you’ve read.

At least until they bring him back to life in a year or so.

47 Ronin by Mike Richardson

Japan’s “national story” comes alive on these pages! Excellent artwork complements a nicely told and paced story of honor and betrayal in ancient Japan. A great introduction to a great story.

All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder by Frank Miller
All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder

P.M. Bradshaw, February 26, 2015

Frank Miller rewrote the book on Batman with the Dark Knight Returns. He did it again with Batman: Year One. And, amazingly, he does it yet again here. A bit lighter in tone than the others, it’s no less fun, or important. Great writing by Miller, fantastic artwork by Jim Lee!

Superman: Secret Identity by Kurt Busiek
Superman: Secret Identity

P.M. Bradshaw, February 26, 2015

How irritating would it be to be named Clark Kent, and be oppressively average? How weird would it be if one day you began gaining the powers of Superman? Each of the five issues here jumps about 10 years, giving you a long life story of this Clark Kent. Excellently written, and beautifully drawn, this should be the next Superman movie.

Y the Last Man Book One by Brian K Vaughan
Y the Last Man Book One

P.M. Bradshaw, February 26, 2015

Yorick is a broke, out-of-work escape artist, talking on the phone to his girlfriend halfway around the world when the plague strikes. It wipes out every male of every species on the planet, except for Yorick and his pet monkey. Can he find his girlfriend, the cause of the plague, and a way to save the human race? The first volume of one of the great series in comics. Includes the great original covers by J.G. Jones.
