New Super Hero Comics On Sale: Week Of June 18

You don’t know how badly I wanted to work some kind of World Cup reference in here this week. Like, really badly. But I’ve got nothing.

It stinks, too, because the world’s most popular sporting event only comes around once every four years, or just slightly longer than it takes every issue of Hawkeye to come out. Zing!

Alas, it’s not like you can even enjoy any of the books on this week’s list of new comic book releases during one of the soccer games, because they don’t have timeouts. Maybe you can sneak in a few pages while guys are on the ground waiting for a stretcher. Halftime should allow you to squeeze in one issue. Otherwise, you’re pretty much limited to before and after the day’s slate of games.

You’re going to want to make time if you’re reading Original Sin, because the events on the last few pages of #3 made for one pretty big cliffhanger. I’d say it might even be worth skipping the pre-game show for today’s big Chile-Spain match-up.

Well look at that. I managed to work the World Cup into my intro after all. So much for soccer, let’s get to the comics!
