Surface Tension & Section Eight
Surface Tension #1– I’m a big fan of underwater sci-fi horror, so this book appeals to me quite a bit. First of all, Jay Gunn’s art style is very reminiscent of Bryan Talbot’s work, so that’s something I loved right off the bat. It’s a very textured art style, and the color palette really makes the pages pop as well.

Marvel Zombies & Captain America and the Mighty Avengers
Marvel Zombies #1-Three great things about this book: A) Elsa Bloodstone is a fantastic character, and placing her in the Deadlands to fight zombie hordes is the kind of smart decision that makes sense, B)Si Spurrier is a fantastic writer who is the best choice to handle the character, and C) Kev Walker’s art is the perfect fit.

Armor Wars, Future Imperfect, Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos, & X-Tinction Agenda
Armor Wars #1– James Robinson scripts an interesting take on Iron Man as the domain of Technopolis is ruled by Tony Stark who attempts to keep his brother Arno in check as they fight for control of the tech market in the city. All citizens of Technopolis must wear armor to survive, and even though Tony has the authority of Doom to pretty much do what he wants he wants to play fairly and cannot punish Arno if there is no evidence of wrong doing.
