How’s it going, friends? Good to see you back here at the @MeltdownComics blog for the breakdown of this week’s reads. I have to admit, I often try to give as much spotlight as I can to all the publishers, but the old dogs over at DC and MARVEL cleaned up shop this week! Not to worry though, we have contenders representing the margins.

First up, our DC #1′s! **Full Bias Disclosure: These selections may be the result of giving a GL fanboy his own blog post, but I think they have the chutzpah to entertain all readers!

Out of the shadows of fear, SINESTRO shines his yellow light in his own #1. Fans of the character will love where the story continues for our fear-mongering tyrant, with mutiny, displays of fatherhood, and hints at a possible love interest, one that deserves to stand in Lantern 1417′s shadow. As well, new readers will be able to freely jump into the material. SINESTRO‘s complexities as a character are undoubtedly one of the many reasons why he’s one of the first villains to step out of FOREVER EVIL and into his own title! Beware his power, SINESTRO‘s might!

DC COMICS continues the ring-slinging with an unlikely hero sporting an emerald suit of his own in SMALLVILLE: LANTERN #1. Again, fans of the Smallville source material will love the book, but really when it comes down to it, it has the one thing so many DC fanboys have wanted to see: Superman with a green lantern ring. For those who know their Smallville and DC history, you’ll notice that they cover most of the bases for making the GL mythos work in the Smallville universe. Give SMALLVILLE: LANTERN a try!

Here comes MARVEL‘s #1 to the plate in…HULK! It’s no secret to anyone that follows the green behemoth that he’s a difficult character to write for, more often the use of Bruce being the challenge. But, it was no surprise to me that the man to make both monster and man live in tandem was none other than Mark Waid. At the close of this issue, we are immediately reminded why we care for the man, the scientist, Banner, and not just his green side. Nothing but excitement for what’s to come in HULK.

Closing out the #1′s, comes another scientist, a man who has been around before Walter White even picked up his junior chemistry set for Christmas. I’m of course talking about DYNAMITE COMICS’ SOLAR: MAN OF THE ATOM. Make no mistake, this guy knows his science, and might truly be one of the cockiest crimefighters in recent history. A great introduction to an older character in comics. SOLAR: MAN OF THE ATOM. Science!

Our #2 issue belongs to a book that’s already received a fair amount of praise on the blog, but damn it, there’s no denying how good this book is. Simply put, ONI PRESS’ THE AUTEUR #2. The hilarity ensues as Nathan T. Rex challenges the legal system to free his mother-fracking murder consultant. **Mild Spoiler** Godzilla does not make a cameo in the issue, but that doesn’t make the cover any less awesome. Kudos again to THE AUTEUR.

Lastly, our numero tres issue comes hot off the heels of you satiated Cap’n fans that saw THE WINTER SOLDIER. Well issue #3 offers a glimpse into that haunting, forgotten past that so sharply defines our former Bucky. But deserved props to our new S.H.I.E.L.D. agents that take on the soldier, you readers keep an eye on them. Enjoy THE WITNER SOLDIER #3!
