Top 5 New Comics for October 24th, 2012

By Vince

Captain America #19

Marvel Comics
Story: Ed Brubaker
Art: Steve Epting

Marvel Says: END OF AN ERA!

Steve Epting returns for the grand finale of Ed Brubaker’s EPIC RUN on Captain America, and the end of an era!

Vince Says: The final issue of Ed Brubaker’s eight-year run on Cap, which will go down in history as one of the best ever.

FF #23

Marvel Comics
Story: Jonathan Hickman
Art: Nick Dragotta

Marvel Says: FINAL ISSUE!

Jonathan Hickman wraps up his tenure as Old Franklin teaches Young Franklin ‘How To Be A God!’

Vince Says: The true finale to Hickman’s run on the Fantastic Four franchise. Also, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH FRANKLIN’S FACE???

Invincible Iron Man #527

Marvel Comics
Story: Matt Fraction
Art: Salvador Larroca

Marvel Says: END OF AN ERA!

Who lives? Who dies? Who wins? Who loses?

More importantly: what’s next for Tony Stark and Iron Man?

You won’t believe it until you read it!

Vince Says: ALSO the final issue of Matt Fraction’s four-year run on Iron Man. Special recognition to Salvador Larroca for penciling 61 straight issues of this title, a very rare feat these days.

Journey into Mystery #645

Marvel Comics
Story: Kieron Gillen
Art: Carmine Di Giandomenico

Marvel Says: EVERYTHING BURNS AFTERMATH

Kieron Gillen bids farewell to the cast of JIM!

‘Why Did Loki Do It? No One Knows.’ Until now!

The critically acclaimed epic reaches its climax as Loki’s future and past collide and nothing will ever be the same again.

No, really. We mean it this time. Stop looking at us like that.

Vince Says: While not as long-running as those other guys, Kieron Gillen has been killing it on Journey into Mystery and it’s one of the few comics I’m legitimately upset won’t live through the Marvel NOW! transition.

Punisher: War Zone #1

Marvel Comics
Story: Greg Rucka
Art: Marco Chacchetto

Marvel Says: The Punisher vs. The Avengers. Welcome to the War Zone.

Vince Says: Clean sweep by Marvel this week. With the transition to a new era, it’s to be expected. The War Zone miniseries marks Greg Rucka’s final story with Frank Castle. Despite low sales, Rucka has told one of the best Punisher stories in a long time during his short run. Why is Frank hunting the Avengers? Who cares? It’ll be damn fun.
