Thursday Morning Superhero

I feel bad that I haven't been able to name Age of Ultron pick of the week because I have truly been loving this series.  This week it is pitted against the third to the last issue of Locke and Key and is once again runner-up.  If you haven't checked out Age of Ultron by Brian Michael Bendis I highly recommend it.  That being said, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez are wrapping up one of the best pieces of fiction that I have ever read.  Hard to compete with a title like this.  Time for the least shocking pick of the week ever!

Pick of the Week:
Locke and Key: Omega #4: The sheer amount of emotion that this series is currently evoking in me should be illegal.  Never have I been more concerned about a group of characters in a comic or have I felt tension that is this palpable.  Dodge's plan to unleash the demons from beyond the door is looking like a foregone conclusion and I know that I am going to shed some tears as this series reaches its conclusion.  Tyler's growth as a character may be my favorite thing about this series.  From the young man who bottled up his emotions to the leader he has become has been a pleasure to witness.  I am sad that there are only two issues left, but I can't wait to complete this journey that has been a true pleasure to be a part of.

The Rest:
Age of Ultron #4 - After the shocking reveal that Ultron was using Vision to manage his destruction, the remaining survivors have a plan that we will begin to see in the next issue.

Snapshot #3 - This fast-paced tale from Andy Diggle takes an unexpected twist in what has been a fun ride that will reach its conclusion next issue.

Miss Fury #1 - This pulp title from Dynamite Entertainment is fun and worth your time if you think you would enjoy a curvacious superhero, Nazis, time travel, and a daring heist.
