12 All-New, All-Different Comics To Be Excited for

Similar to the War on Crime, the Secret Wars is on pace to never end; at least not any time soon. That won’t stop the next age of Marvel from showing comic book readers how many words they can fit into a header. Beginning October 7th, the All-New All-Different Age of Marvel begins with Avengers #0, All-New All-Different Point One #1, Doctor Strange #1, and Contest of Champions #1. These books will be setting the pace for the gaggle of books to follow over the next several months.

The immense selection can be daunting and with so many things changed it may be tough to figure out what’s worth risking your hard earned nerd-bucks on. Allow us to be your Samwise and help carry that burden for you. Here are 10 All-New All-Different Marvel books that we’re excited for… in no particular order.

Comic Issues #189 — Transforming God of X-Men

As another dawn opens on the weekly celebration that is Comic Book Day the podcast that you both want and deserve!  This week Anthony and Elizabeth hit the rack to bring to you some of the best comics from last week just in time to pick them up with this week’s books.

Among our favorite books was the comic that everyone probably assumed we were already loving, Transformers #33, which made us feel like kids buried in die-cast awesomeness.  Also following up last week’s Bachalo love-fest is the Bachalo-less love for Uncanny X-Men #26’s scary-powerful new mutant and a deep look at Cyclop’s current psyche.  Wrapping up the podcast we send Thor off in God of Thunder #25 and an anthology leading to teasers for next month’s Thor #1 starring Lady Thor, don’t worry we figured out how to say it without being derogatory.

Comic Issues Podcast #188 – Our favorite comics! (..this week..)

This week the crew is doing one big round-up of our favorite comics. (Our current favorites anyway. It changes a lot.)

First: since Marvel’s cornered the market on the best comic-book movies, is DC trying to take over TV? Can they do it?

Then we’re looking at some of the latest Marvel books to hit the stands. Magneto #9 continues his one-man, self-disgust-fueled vengeance run against, well, everybody apparently. Over on Uncanny X-men we’re taking bets on who’s going to inherit the school, once hologram-Xavier quits screwing around and actually tells us. Then we take a look at Death of Wolverine issues 1 and 2. What’s likely to kill Wolverine first: one of the thousands of people out for his blood? Or an infection from stabbing somebody who didn’t take a lot of baths?
