Comic of the Week 11/11

Time once again for another thrilling installment of my immensely popular comic of the week posts! No post last week for two reasons, first there really wasn't much worth posting about shipping, and second, as noted on several previous occasions, my laziness knows no boundaries. Some good stuff this week though, including the return of Doc Savage! This week I'm actually torn between the conclusion of two arcs, both of which I've enjoyed a great deal. It won't happen often, but this week Hellboy beats out the Dark Knight by an extremely slight margin, Wild Hunt is ending and I absolutely can't wait to read it.

Comic of the Week

If you've been following along these past couple of months, you've already heard me go on and on about how much I'm digging this latest Hellboy series. It's not that the ones before it were bad, far from it, in fact The Crooked Man was absolutely brilliant. Wild Hunt just really seems to finally be moving Hellboy's story along, and it's something that I feel like has been a little overdue. The solicit, if you care to read it:

"Hellboy finally confronts the truth about his heritage, a moment that the mysterious Osiris Club has been anticipating for over a century, and believes heralds the final days of man! The conclusion to Wild Hunt!"

Honorable mentions this week go to the other book that was truly worthy of Pick of the Week, Batman and Robin #6, the previously mentioned return of Doc Savage in the Batman/ Doc Savage Special, one of my new favorite writers Jason Aaron gives us his take on the Punisher in the all-new Punisher Max #1, and finally go ahead and grab Walking Dead #67 simply because you know you were going to already.
