This week sees the end of the current Captain Britain title. Sad to see it go, as it quickly transcended its ‘Secret Invasion’ origins and became something more than another iteration of a Superhero title (with a nod to the British). It was gripping, and the final arc – Vampire State, which concludes with this issue – has been one of the best stories of the year so far. Elsewhere, The Boys: Herogasm #3 continues its debauched run, with The Boys firmly in the picture (should be fun, and bloody). Phonogram 2 may help me get over the loss of Captain Britain with some fine UK indie scene tales. Here are this weeks picks;
MAY090787 BOYS HEROGASM #3 £2.15 DYNAMIC FORCES
MAY090494 CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI 13 #15 £2.15 MARVEL COMICS
JAN092400 PHONOGRAM 2 #4 (OF 7) SINGLES CLUB £2.40 IMAGE COMICS
All of the weeks releases can be seen here
The Boys: Herogasm #3
The Occasional Death At Herogasm Isn’t That Unusual, But How One Member Of Fantastico Checks Out Is Nothing Short Of Spectacular. In The Resultant Chaos The Boys Make Their Move – On A Target That May Not Be All He Seems. Hughie, Meanwhile, Runs Smack Into Black Noir In The Worst Possible Way, While Jack From Jupiter Spills A Few More Secrets To A-Train. And Speaking Of Secrets, What Does The Man From Vought-American Want With Vic The Veep…?
Captain Britain & MI13 #15
“VAMPIRE STATE” The final battle with Dracula is here! Can what’s left of MI13 possibly defeat the most brilliant military strategist alive (or at least undead)? Who is Gloriana and what role does Dr. Doom play in this whole thing?
Phonogram 2: Singles Club #4
They’re the Single Club’s DJ ogres: Seth Bingo and the Silent Girl. But do sensitive hearts beat within shallow breasts? Hell, no. Join us for a story of sarcasm, extreme sarcasm and solipsistic snobbishness. Remember: they’re laughing at you. You may as well laugh at them. PLUS two back-up stories showcasing the dazzling art of DAVID LAFUENTE (Hellcat) and CHARITY LARRISON (Busted Wonder).
