Comic Picks of the Week (October 1, 2014)

This week, I just had to check out Thor#1.  As you no doubt have heard rumblings about, Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman have teamed up to deliver a bold new chapter in the ongoing story of Thor.  That’s right, Thor is either being replaced or undergoing gender reassignment surgery.  Please don’t be the latter…

Mjolnir sits idle upon the surface of the moon while frost giants invade the Earth.  This to me seems like the kind of problem a god of Thunder might want to assist with, but he’s sitting collapsed on the lunar surface.

It begs the question, what the @#$% did Nick Fury whisper to Thor during Original Sins that made Thor suddenly unworthy to wield Mjolnir!?!?   What secret, stolen from the Watcher, caused the hammer to fall from his hands and why does it now reject him?!?  There’s only one place to find out!

The slightly delayed, Death of Wolverine #3 hit the stands today as well, and once again there is a Director’s Cut!  You’ve got to love the behind the scenes look at the creative process.   To me there’s nothing better!  Logan continues his hunt for the one who put the massive price on his head with the help of Shadowcat, but the road to resolution goes through none other than Ogun.  Is Wolverine strong enough to defeat him without his healing factor?  Yeah, probably…  I mean it’s frickin’ Wolverine people.

Last, but not least was a bit of a surprise.  Guardians 3000 #1 came out today, and I grabbed this one for the artwork.  Gerardo Sandoval’s variant cover caught my eye, so I flipped it and saw that the carpet matched the drapes, so to speak.  I’m looking forward to checking it out more thoroughly.  On top of that Moon Knight #8 and Usagi Yojimbo: Senso #3 await.
