Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 10/28/2016

Here we go again!  It's time for us to celebrate all the books that the Weird Science Get Fresh Crew decided were worthy of this list.  Yep, the best of the best, the creme de la creme, the pick of the litter, the beau monde...I could go on forever.  I won't, though, because it's time to get to what we came here for...the Picks!  And awaaaaaay we go...

Wonder Woman: 75th Anniversary Special #1
Score: 9.5/10

What Jim Said:

If you love Wonder Woman than this issue is your invitation to celebrate what makes her great by a huge creative team that loves her just as much (or more) than you.  It's an oversized issue stuffed with stories and art and I'm sure that everyone will find plenty to love.  This isn't a history lesson for newcomers, but a true celebration of one of the best and most important characters ever created. Read Full Review

Wonder Woman #9
Score: 9.0/10

What Eric Said:

The mysteries are just thrown at us in this issue of Wonder Woman and man do they get me interested as hell to see what Greg Rucka has up his sleeve for our Amazon Princess.  The art and the story in this book are fantastic and this issue is just full of heart that reminds me why everyone should be reading Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

Detective Comics #943
Score: 8.8/10

What Jim Said:

James Tynion IV is off to a good start as we look a little at the past while being forced into the future,  While I have no idea how good the Victim Syndicate will be as a villain group, I loved the cameos in this issue and the character interactions were great.  Add some good art and we have a series that is coming back from a bye and kicking ass and taking names! Read Full Review

Sixpack & Dogwelder: Hard-Travelin' Heroz #3
Score: 8.5/10

What Reggie Said:

Delving deeper in Dogwelder's past proves to be an awkward experience, which I suppose we could have expected. But we don't just take a look at Dogwelder the man, but Dogwelder the institution! With gorgeous artwork that captures expressions and gross-outs with equal skill, it's not tough to see why I read this book first every month! Read Full Review

Deathstroke #5
Score: 8.3/10

What Jim Said:

Deathstroke continues getting better and better and it's not because of over the top action, but the cat and mouse game that our main characters are involved in.  You don't know who to trust here and quite frankly, I wouldn't trust anyone.  It's great to see Rose and Batman work together, but the interaction between Deathstroke and Damian was priceless. Read Full Review

Teen Titans #1
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

The team has been assembled and things are looking good! Everyone's character, particularly Damian's, seems on-point, and their interactions are pleasant. Yes, a team of heroes that enjoy each other's company! Is that too much to ask? I think the artwork is awesome, but it is something you either appreciate or you don't. All together, this makes for a very promising Teen Titans package that makes me want to read more. Read Full Review

Suicide Squad #5
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

We take a little welcome breather after the all-out action-fest that was the last story arc, and find some interactions developing between certain teammates that are...goofy. But intriguing! The stuff about the composition of the Black Vault is also pretty compelling, and I wonder if that's the real prize here. The back-up looks glorious, and it's a pretty good origin story for one of the Squad members besides. Check it out, it won't bite (except for Killer Croc.) Read Full Review
