Pick of the Week
Wacky Raceland (2016-) #4
Our heroes head to the radioactive remains of Las Vegas for a little R&R between races, hoping for a jackpot of ammunition to add to their dwindling supplies. Instead, they arouse the ire of the ganglord Neon Caesar, who’s got an ax to grind with Red. Meanwhile, Muttley and his vehicles are lost in the labyrinthine sewers beneath the streets when the gangs of Vegas unite to eradicate the Racers. Our heroes must go it alone against the combined might of the Caesars, the Pharaohs, the Clowns, and the terrifying Combovers, who have great weapons. Terrific weapons. Really, they have the best weapons.
With Kim & Kim and Wacky Raceland coming out the same day, I thought I was going to have a touch decision on my hands. Turns out, I needn’t have worried. Wacky Raceland has a Trump impression. The best Trump impression. Really, you should check it out.
Reasons to pick this one up: The impassioned speech by the leader of the gang, the Combovers, makes this one a must read any day of the week. Not to mention the fact that the cars are sentient actually became relevant this week.
Reasons to avoid: It’s ending, far too soon for my liking. I could have read at least several dozen more volumes before I would have grown sick of it.
Kim & Kim #3
Interstellar-cowboy life just keeps getting worse for our badass besties. On the hunt for Lady Babylon, Kim & Kim get shot out the sky by an unknown enemy and end up stranded on the frozen world of Never-Look-Back. But what they find there might be the breakthrough they’ve been looking for.
There was no universe in which Kim & Kim would not be the runner up if it hadn’t made the pick of the week. If you’re not reading this series, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Female bounty hunters. Mechanical gorillas. Alien life forms. What’s not to love?
Reasons to pick up: Squad goals!
Reasons to avoid: None. None whatsoever.
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #46
It’s election season in Ponyville and Mayor Mare looks to have the race in the bag. But when Filthy Rich throws his hat in the ring, all bets are off!
My Little Pony also decided to take on the 2016 presidential election with business pony Filthy Rich running against career politician Mayor Mare because he thought politics would be better run by a business pony. I’m glad the comic industry is getting so much mileage out of this.
Assassin’s Creed: Locus #1
Brand new story set in the stunning world of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate! Dive into the sordid underworld of Victorian London, and the memories of New Yorker, Tommy Greyling, as he teams up with Evie Frye and Henry Green to search for a Piece of Eden that has the potential to change the world!
Evie Fyre is my favorite assassin, and I think this is only supposed to be four volumes long ,so I figured it couldn’t hurt to check it out.
Wonder Woman (2016-) #7
“THE LIES” part 4! One god down-how many more to go? Diana takes another step closer to the truth, and Steve Trevor confronts his past!
Still like the art on this one better than Year One, but it looks like the two are going to start melding together soon.
