Pick of the Geek (January 11-17, 2016)

Secret Wars 9


The pick of the geek for this week would mainly focus on the comic book side of things, since its a quiet week in the realm of TV and movies. So without further adieu, here are the Geekend Gladiator’s pick of the geek!



american alien 3
By: Max Landis, Joelle Jones and Ryan Sook

Superman American Alien has been one of those books that’s easy to love, and if it’s any indication, issue #3 looks to deliver another good chapter in the early years of Clark Kent/Superman. In this issue, Clark Kent crashes Bruce Wayne’s swanky party and even gets mistaken as the billionaire, playboy.


By: James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams

Batman vs. the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Need I say more? Fiiine, in issue #2 the Ninja Turtles are put to the test as they battle Batman. Meanwhile, Shredder is up to no good as he strikes a deal with Penguin. Things are getting really interesting indeed.


robin war 2
By: Tom King and Khary Randolph

After several weeks of taking-over the Bat-Family books, Robin War finally reaches its conclusion this week. With all the high-praise surrounding this story-arc, look for the conclusion to leave a mark in the Bat-family and maybe even the DC Universe.



Secret Wars 9
By: Jonathan Hickman, Esad Ribic, Alex Ross

It’s finally here! The epic conclusion to one of Marvel’s best events in years, Secret Wars. After months of delays, we will finally know how our heroes overthrow god Doom and restore the Marvel Universe we all know and love. And hopefully, we get some kind of explanation tying-up the events of Secret Wars and the subsequent relaunch of the Marvel Universe.


mighty thor 3
By: Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman

Mighty Thor remains to be one compelling read. In this month’s issue, Loki insists that he just wants to talk with Thor, and we all know that this almost always spells doom. Meanwhile, the War of Realms continues to grow with the help of Malkeith.

So there you have it, our five comic book picks this week. What’s in your list? Let us know in our comments section below.
