Top 5 New Comics for November 21st, 2012

By Vince

Amazing Spider-Man #698

Marvel Comics
Story: Dan Slott
Art: Giuseppe Camuncoli

Marvel Says: DYING WISH PRELUDE

The end of Spider-Man’s world begins when Doctor Octopus discovers who Peter Parker really is. (Fifty years goes by much…too…fast.)

Vince Says: The beginning of the end for Amazing Spider-Man. In Slott we trust.

Captain America #1

Marvel Comics
Story: Rick Remender
Art: John Romita, Jr.

Marvel Says: Thrust into a bizarre, inhospitable world far from home, the all-new, high-adventure, mind-melting, tough-as-nails, sci-fi, pulp-fantasy era of Captain America is NOW!

With no country and no allies, what’s left for the Sentinel of Liberty to protect? The Saga of Dimension Z begins here!

Vince Says: Ed Brubaker’s Captain America is an impossible act to follow, but this is a valiant effort. I love the switch back to the old Kirby sci-fi style and Remender has never let me down. The only thing that can hold this back is Romita; his art has been a bit disappointing recently.

Clone #1

Image Comics
Story: David Schulner
Art: Juan Jose Ryp

Image Says: From ROBERT KIRKMAN’s Skybound imprint, comes a sci-fi story like you’ve never seen before!

Dr. Luke Taylor’s perfect life comes to a dramatic halt when an identical, bloodied version of himself arrives at his doorstep with news that he is one of many clones and they’re all after his pregnant wife and their unborn child!

Vince Says: Image has been firing on all cylinders this year for their 20th anniversary, finally becoming the publisher they always should have been. Most of their new launches have had great talent and unique ideas that you can’t find anywhere else.

Dark Avengers #183

Marvel Comics
Story: Jeff Parker
Art: Neil Edwards

Marvel Says: THE END OF THE THUNDERBOLTS!

Bid farewell to Ghost, Centurius, Man-Thing and the gang forever!

Jeff Parker and Neil Edwards plot a dark new course for Earth’s Deadliest Heroes!

Vince Says: I’ve always loved the Thunderbolts, it’s been a fun comic for years. Jeff Parker has done everything imaginable during his run, and it’s been an absolute blast. I can’t believe he actually got me to care about this group of characters. He’s retiring the current team so the new, Red Hulk-led team can get a new first issue, but Parker will be continuing the Dark Avengers concept into Marvel NOW!

Indestructible Hulk #1

Marvel Comics
Story: Mark Waid
Art: Lenil Yu

Marvel Says: Hulk – Indestructible force more weapon than man. Banner – smartest man alive. Combined they are the Strongest, Smartest Weapon on the planet! And NOW! the INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK is an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Vince Says: Very few writers have gotten me to like Hulk in a solo series. Mark Waid is one of the greatest comic writers alive, with a pile of awards to show for it. The ball’s in your court, Marvel.
