The Comic Lounge's Picks of the Week (1/1/20)



The Speed Force is out of control and Barry has to stop a powered up Captain Cold. This arc has been so much fun and I can't wait to see how Barry overcomes this new obstacle. Plus this is all leading up to the big 750th issue. This is such a great time to be a Flash fan.

Here's the solicit:

"Rogues' Reign" part four! An out-of-control Flash must figure out a way to harness his powers, because he's about to face the villain who flipped his world upside down- Mirror Master! Our hero has only one hope of survival-the Rogues are warring with each other and their forces are split. But while Barry struggles with his own abilities, are the Rogues headed for a reconciliation that would make stopping any of them that much harder?


My favorite era of Star Wars is here. I can't wait to learn more about the time set between Episodes V & VI. We finally get to see the toll it took on Luke when he finds out Vader is his father. Also how did Luke get that green lightsaber? So many things to find out, I can't wait.

Here's the solicit:

"No...I am your father." In the wake of the events following The Empire Strikes Back, it is a dark time for the heroes of the Rebellion. The Rebel fleet...scattered following a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Hoth. Han Solo...lost to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, after being frozen in carbonite. And after being lured into a trap on Cloud City and bested in a vicious lightsaber duel against the evil Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker...learned the horrible truth about his past. Vader did not kill Luke's father Anakin--Vader is Luke's father! Now, after narrowly escaping the dark lord's clutches, and wounded and reeling from the revelation, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, the Wookiee Chewbacca and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 must fight their way back to the Rebel Alliance-for the fate of the entire galaxy is at stake! After so many losses is victory still possible?  But, what Leia, Luke and their ragtag band of freedom fighters do not realize is that they have only traded one Imperial trap for another! Enter the cunning and vengeful Imperial Commander Zahra, at the helm of the Tarkin's Will!


With Aaron's run finished, it's time for Cates to take up Mjolnir. I already read this and trust me, this is gonna be one of the most talked about books. It's so effing good.

Here's the solicit:

A BRAND-NEW, SUPERSTAR CREATIVE TEAM TAKES THE KING OF ASGARD TO NEW REALMS OF GLORY! The prince is now a king. All Asgard lies before Thor, the God of Thunder. And after many months of war, the Ten Realms are finally at peace. But the skies above the Realm Eternal are never clear for long. The Black Winter is coming. And the God of the Storm will be powerless before it.

X-MEN #4

One of the best X-Men runs of all time continues. Each issue has been amazing and I can't wait to see more of Hickman's machinations unfold. Plus look at that cover. Apocalypse in a suit??? What the fuck?

Here's the solicit:

The Krakoan leaders attend and economic forum to show the humans what real power looks like.



Another great Daredevil issue as this Through Hell story arc proves to really deliver some great developments. Come for the great writing, stick around for the equally impressive art.

Here's the solicit:

The Devil of Hell's Kitchen returns! As Matt Murdock rekindles his alliance with Elektra, Kingpin plans to rekindle some alliances of his own...


If you were a fan of the Tales of Suspense mini-series from last year, you should definitely check this issue out as it has a similar vibe and humor. Some elements introduced in the issue could lead to an interesting perspective from Clint that we haven't really seen before. Check it out!

Here's the solicit:

When a mysterious and ruthless new Ronin starts tearing a destructive path through the city, suspicion immediately falls on Hawkeye, but Clint has more to worry about than who's wearing his old costume. After a clash with the Hood ends badly, Hawkeye gives himself a new mission that will place him in the crosshairs of one of New York's most dangerous villains. Hawkeye's mission and Ronin's secret plans will set them on a collision course that only one of them will walk away from. Fan favorite Clint Barton returns in a brand new series from Matthew Rosenberg (UNCANNY X-MEN, THE PUNISHER) and Otto Schmidt (Green Arrow).
