Picks of the Week: 2/20

Patrick and I once again pick the comics arriving in comic stores tomorrow with the most potential...

Patrick's pick:

Golgo 13 (Volume 13) - The final volume of this greatest hits series debuts in the direct market this week, although you may have been able to score a copy at a bookstore by now. The stories in this volume concern Duke Togo’s secret role in the 2000 U.S. presidential election, as well as a possible origin story, of which there are apparently several. I don’t know what I’m going to miss more, these books or Jog’s excellent commentary on them.

Dave's pick:

The Order (Volume 1): The Next Right Thing - I hear that this is one of the better superhero books out there right now, so I've been waiting for this collection of the first seven issues to come out for awhile now (and just in time for issue eight's arrival to stores). Written by Matt Fraction (Casanova, The Immortal Iron Fist), with art by Barry Kitson (Legion of Super-Heroes). Unfortunately the series is cancelled already, as of issue ten, but better late than never... The series follows a group of superpowered models and actors that are established as California's superteam under Tony Stark's 50-State Initiative.
