Legendary comic book store owner Greg Bennett provides a pair of recommendations for comic book lovers every week. Titles are either currently on specialty store shelves or shipping or in the near future. Fans can also click on the covers to appreciate the fine art.


Secret Warriors from Marvel Entertainment

Secret Warriors, No. 1, Marvel Entertainment ($3.99)

Nick Fury is back, and he’s trying to keep the world safe from H.A.M.M.E.R. Which could be a problem, as they’re well connected politically. Story by Brian Bendis, with script by up-and-comer Jonathan (Nightly News, Pax Romana) Hickman.

I am Legion from Devil's Due Publishing

I am Legion, No. 1, Devil’s Due Publishing ($3.50)

This is what John Cassaday’s been doing for the European market, instead of drawing Planetary. I think issues #1-3 are the same material that appeared in the DC/Humanoids GN a few years back, but #4-6 have never been seen in English before. Recommended.
