Dave and the Hard Shelled Hero

Dualing Picks of the Week

Action Comics #1005: Pick O’ The Week

sep180445This week’s pick is Action Comics #1005 (man, I love saying that!) and it’s because it reminds me a great deal of those old Superman books from the Mike Carlin edited era. I miss those days…a book every week…the triangle in the corner to let you know where you were at in the year…and great stories with amazing characters that you really cared about. This ish of Action is a lot like that.

It starts off at the Daily Planet with a lot of interplay (always a good thing) and then Supes encounters the mysterious Red Cloud. In his alter ego, Clark discovers some secrets to a very hidden crime syndicate.

The last page is a stunner! Don’t miss it!!

Missed Thanksgiving Pick

SEP181163Sorry we missed the pick last week. We were eating turkey!

But we sure did enjoy all that food with Project Super Powers #4. Pandora’s army is here. The Earth is defenseless, and war has arrived. Scarab, in Earth orbit, faces the might of the invaders firsthand, while Samson attempts to hold back an overwhelming force alone.

Meanwhile, at the hospital bed of a wounded child, Black Terror must hold the line against horrifically transformed The Death-Defying Devil. P:andora wants the girl Imani dead. But why?

Pick up this ish and find out. While you are at it. buy the first three. And volumes 1 and 2. This book is awesome!!
