Rusty’s Comic of the Week: Miracleman #16 | March 6, 2015

Miracleman16

A big challenge came to my ‘cut off the monthlies’ play.

A new Saga came out.

I persevered. I overcame.

Only four books this week.

AVENGERS #42 (Hickman / Caselli / Martin) Marvel

The core Avengers book might be the only book I will be in monthlies.

I mean, I have them all. I stopped buying every ancillary Avengers title, but I have all the core books.

Too bad it wasn’t better.

REVIVAL #28 (Tim Seeley / Mike Norton) Image

This is the last issue of this one for me. I actually think Revival will be improved by reading it in trades. It is the ongoing story that matters, not the individual episodes.

SWAMP THING #40 (Soule / Saiz / Pina / Chung) DC

This is the last issue for everyone, not just me.

This was interesting as it teased itself into Morrison Animal Man territory without fully committing. A little bit of The Unwritten as well.

Interesting but not groundbreaking like Animal Man was.

MIRACLEMAN #16 (Moore / Totleben) Marvel

This is the end of the Alan Moore run so it is a good jumping off point for me… though I am interested in reading the collected version by Neil Gaiman.

This would likely not have been the top book if it wasn’t for my shrinking list, but it is very solid. It is kind of the capstone to the whole thing and you could easily just stop here.

I have no idea what is coming next.
