New Comics Released 2/6/2013

New Comic Books are released in retail shops across the United States every Wednesday, every week the Degobot makes it to his local comic book store (Floating World Comics in Portland, OR) to purchase a small stack of comic books. Comics aren’t cheap, so the Degobot has to be selective on which comics he chooses to spend his hard earned money on. The decision to buy or not buy a particular comic is based on the book’s creative team, character, publisher, and cover.

The Degobot is excited to read the following comics today:

Avengers 5

AVENGERS # 5 (by Jonathan Hickman and Adam Kubert)
This issue will tell the origin of Smasher, the first human member of the Imperial Guard and an Avenger. Since Jonathan Hickman took over as the writer of the Avengers, the book’s mission statement has been to go bigger. For those who don’t know, the Imperial Guard is a team of alien warriors whom serve the rulers of the Shi’ar Empire located on the other side of the galaxy. It’s safe to assume based on this character’s appearance, the series’ previous 4 issues, and the cover to this book that the Avengers are definitely going bigger. (Published by Marvel Comics)

iron man 6

IRON MAN # 6 (by Kieron Gillen and Greg Land)
Billed as an AVX aftermath, this story will feature Iron Man in Spaaaaaaaaace! Knowing that Iron Man will be joining Bendis’ cast in “Guardians of the Galaxy”, the Degobot is curious as to how heavily this story will tie into that book. (Published by Marvel Comics)

ultimate spider man 20

Ultimate Comics: All New Spider-Man # 20 (by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli)
For those not caught up on this series, Peter Parker is dead, long live the all new Ultimate Spider-Man; Miles Morales. Morales is a 13 year old boy who now has spider powers and is trying to carry on Parker’s legacy. This is the second issue of a story involving Ultimate Venom. Morales and Venom still have yet to meet, and the Degobot is hoping that they will in this issue. (Published by Marvel Comics)
