Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality #5 (Marvel)
"The first act of violence that patriarchy demands of males is not violence toward women. Instead patriarchy demands of all males that they engage in acts of psychic self-mutilation, that they kill off the emotional parts of themselves. If an individual is not successful in emotionally crippling himself, he can count on patriarchal men to enact rituals of power that will assault his self-esteem.”
What should you do? This is a beautiful story that needs to be told about the hell of war. I also think the Hooks quote is an amazing choice to get us all thinking about the subject matter! The art in this is also killer. When I do my weekly review show on Monday, I'll show the sheer insanity of some of the panels, and it took my breath away.
That Texas Blood #2 (Image)
By: Chris Condon and Jacob Phillips
While the first issue had a lot of good laughs that turned mighty serious at the end, the second does a great job setting up some longitudinal questions for the length of the series, and I'm here for the party!
What should you do? Yeah, this book is hot, and it's picking up more heat as more folks keep talking about it, and it's worth it. I think Condon and Phillips have set the hook in all of us and will be spending a bunch of issues reeling us in!

Giant-Size X-Men: Magneto
By: Jonathan Hickman, Ramon Perez, David Curiel
ALL THAT MATTERS IS WE GET A NAMOR APPEARANCE!!!! Namor owns the island Magneto is wanting to purchase for Emma, so he goes on a trench-venture and they have to fight a Kraken. At the end of the trench-venture Magneto picks up something that I don't want to spoil, but we also don't fully know its significance yet! But based on what he has to go through to get it, it must be pretty important!
What should you do? Ya'll know I'm gonna gobble up every X title, especially as we get closer and closer to X of Swords. I'm gonna study all of these and prepare a large youtube to-do to educate the peoples as we get ready for their first event post HoX/PoX.
Strange Adventures #3 (DC)
Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Evan Shaner
We also start to get flashbacks to a gladiatorial act of combat which may be our first glimpse into what he's being accused of? It also serves as some additional backstory on Strange and his wife!
What should you do? I'm still enjoying the slow burn of this book in the same way I enjoyed Mister Miracle (even though I didn't have to wait and binged it in the trade!). If you haven't hopped on yet, you should because they're selling out pretty quickly!
Spider-Woman #2 (Marvel)
By: Karla Pacheco, Pere Perez, Frank D'Armata
What she finds, and the end result seems pretty significant, and I'm excited for #3.
What should you do? I like Jessica Drew, and while this isn't your typical Spider-Woman story, I like the different direction it's taking for now because its partially re-examining the origin of her powers and it's pretty sweet!
