This week's pull-list only featured two books that were both must-reads. In this slow week I didn't feel it was appropriate to name one as the pick of the week and felt a simple review of two titles that you absolutely should be reading would be a better approach. In no particular order I present this week's books that are complete polar opposites of one another.
Picks of the Week:
Valiant High #1 - If you haven't been reading some of the stellar books that Valiant has been publishing then you are missing out. I am a big fan of Bloodshot and Faith has been a massive hit. When I heard that there was a mini-series consisting of the Valiant heroes as high school students, I was intrigued. Under the leadership of Principal Harada and gym coach Bloodshot (my favorite), Livewire, Faith, and other high school heroes will have to navigate the issues that all teenagers deal with. In this mash-up of Archie, She's All That and Sky High, writer Daniel Kibblesmith infuses this series with smart humor, high school antics, and a lot of Bloodshot yelling. This book serves as a fun way to learn about the Valiant Universe and promises to be a lot of fun.
