Comic Picks of the Week (April 23, 2014)

I know Original Sin #0 comes out this week, but the first few pages were a rather boring rehash of the start of the Nova series that just came out.  I'll flip it in the shop, but I doubt I'll be bringing it home.  For me, the clear winner this week is The 7th Sword #1.  Samurai meets sci-fi in this tale penned by John Raffo; who wrote Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (if you haven't seen this flick go amend that now!). Artwork is by Nelson Blake II who has previously done some great work on The Darkness and Witchblade.  I've very much looking forward to what Raffo calls an "oddball alchemy".

This week also brings a great jumping on point for Conan fans with the start of a new story arc in Conan: The Avenger.  As far as I know Cap isn't handing him a place on the squad and we're sticking to high adventure in Cimmeria, but when I saw the title a bunch of twisted crossover ideas were the first thing to fly through my head.  Last, but not least is Danger Girl: Mayday #1 (of 4) which will feature the return of everyone's favorite Danger Girl villain.  

Great stories are everywhere!
