Welcome back to Critical Blast’s long-running weekly look at what new comics you should check out each week.   Just a warning, I make these picks pretty much a week BEFORE I actually get to read any of these comics, so if something is a stinker, I take no blame on that.  Let's get to it!

Comics shipping this week

Sorry for the brief column this week, but I am just getting back from vacation and dealing with a severe injury. Hopefully will be back to normal next week,

  • DUCKTALES #11 – The season finale of DUCKTALES last week may have been the best hour of animated television I have ever seen! The tie-in comic has been the perfect companion to the show. If you re liking DUCKTALES the show as much as I have, then you owe it to yourself to check out IDW’s comic series.
  • WEST COAST AVENGERS #1 – When I was a kid, my parents would pick up packs of random comics at BJ’s for my sister and me. Because of this, I would end up reading a lot of random issues of random issues. This is why I read WEST COAST AVENGERS long before I had ever read an issue of the regular AVENGERS. WEST COAST AVENGERS was long one of my favorite series, and this new version looks like it should be a lot of fun. Definitely checking this one out.
