With a whopper of a cliff hanger in Issue No. 18, we’re excited to see what happens next, especially with Forever. Hopefully the Carmichael family have a trick up their sleeves.

Groot has been one of those feel-good comic books from Marvel. In issue 4, Groot continues his quest to save Rocket. Will he finally be able to succeed in his mission? Let’s find out in this week’s issue.
GREEN ARROW #44
By: Benjamin Percy and Patrick Zircher (DC)
The previous story arc felt rushed, hopefully this new one gets fleshed out a bit more. In issue 44, the origin story of Oliver’s wolf is discussed, and a mysterious woman asks for the Green Arrow’s help.
METAL GEAR SOLID 5: PHANTOM PAIN
The much anticipated (and very controversial) MGS5 will finally be released (yay!) on September 1. The latest installment of the MGS5 franchise looks poised to wow fans and further Snake’s mythos.
Be sure to be back later this week for reviews on our picks.
