The People's Top 5 for May 30, 2018

Read all of The People's (Frontline LIVE viewers) Top 5 picks, Cover of the Week, and Most Anticipated to coincide with Frontline LIVE #203!

This week on Frontline LIVE #203, we tried an experiment with The People's Top 5 (the Top 5 picks of our viewers), by reading off random ones instead of going through their full lists. Even though that is not a change we will be sticking to for future shows, we promised to highlight them all in an article this week. So without further ado, here are The People's Top 5 for books released on May 30, 2018!

Worst Pick
Tough choices this week out of 10 - Infinity Countdown: Captain Marvel - This wasn't horrible, but it could have been better in my opinion. The art was weak. The story is fine. Glad to see them dealing with Civil War 2.

Top 5
5.Batman Prelude to the Wedding: Robin vs. Ra's Al Ghul- A fun and engaging issue dealing with Damian and Selina
4.Justice League: No Justice #4 - A pretty great ending to a pretty fun event
3.Doomsday Clock #5 - A solid issue of Doomsday Clock I really enjoyed
2. Ms. Marvel #30 - Another fun and engaging issue of Kamala Khan. I enjoyed the moments between Bruno and Mike and happy to see Zoe have a girlfriend. I hope that is explored more.
1.Man of Steel #1 - I loved this book. What a shock from Bendis. After a bunch of bad teases the main event was great. The moment with Superman listening to that cover is my fav

Black Lightning & Hong Kong Phooey (Much like HKP, this was awful and a chore to read. Fact: nobody ever liked HKP, we just watched it because it was on TV).

Peter Barker (From Our Discord)

Worst Pick
The Amazing Spider-Man #800 - Overlong, boring and tedious. And at the end of the comic your reward for staying with it was that cornball Flash Thompson funeral. (have to say the art was good though).

Top 5
5) Batman Prelude to the Wedding Part One: Robiin Vs Ra's Al Ghul #1 - Thought this would be a "wedding" cash grab but was pleasantly surprised.
4) Marvel 2-In-One #6 - Another great issue - there hasn't been a bad one yet - with interesting story and "fantastic" art.
3) Harbinger Wars 2 #1 - Really enjoyed this issue that (l found) was  new reader friendly.
2) The Man Of Steel #1 - Very impressed with Bendis' first issue - and even more so with Ivan Reis' art. Excellent comic.
1) Doomsday Clock #5 - Long wait for each issue but when it comes out it's a real treat. Things are starting to click into place with the story and Gary Frank's art is super detailed. Definitely worth the wait.

Cover of the Week
Batman Prelude To the Wedding Part One: Robiin Vs Ra's Al Ghul #1 - Nice looking cover - and speech bubbles!

Most Anticipated

SweetExorcist7 (From Our Discord)

Worst Pick
Green Lanterns Annual #1 - Boring and pointless! I’m over these low budget Green Lanterns!

Top 5
5.X Men Red Annual #1 - Nice book didn’t understand why black bolt had to Jean.
4.Infinity Countdown #1 Captain Marvel - Wish this writer was staying on her series, best issue of this character I’ve read in a while.
3.Justice League No Justice #4 Enjoyed This Series and excited most for that Justice League Dark Book!
2.Man of Steel #1 - Bendis is off to a decent start and very intrigued by the new character Rogol Zaar!
1.Green Arrow Annual #1 - A great showcase for green arrow and a good start for the benson sisters! Actually enjoy this better than No Justice!

Tevya Smolka​ (From Our Discord)

Worst Pick
The Amazing Spider-Man #800 - Not a bad issue I gotta admit but it wasn't worth $10. Killing off Flash wasn't necessary. I'm not happy that Superior Spider-Man is coming back again.

Top 5
5. Batman Prelude To the Wedding Part One: Robiin Vs Ra's Al Ghul #1 - A great story between Damian & Ra's & to see a potential future brother is interesting. The talk between Damian & Selena was sweet. Can't wait for the wedding. :smiley_cat:
4.  The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #18 - Not a fan of the time jump but was tons of fun especially Peter and MJ on the cruise. Fun read & nice to see little Annie with the X-Men again, wished we stayed in the past.
3. The Man Of Steel #1 - Interesting but knowing Bendis' track record I'm worried about Jon & Lois being absent in the story & hoping I'm wrong. Lobo Zar is so boring that i don't give a damn.
2. The Flash/Speedbuggy Special #1 -  Tons of fun to see Wally fighting Savitar with Speedbuggy is amazing & awesome so was the ending with everyone watching them race. :smiley:
1. Super Sons/Dynomutt Special #1 - Great story with Jon & Damian teaming up with Dynomutt to save Blue Falcon from Red Condor was amazing & yay a happy ending :smiley:

Cover of the Week
Super Sons/Dynomutt - A great cover with the Super Sons, Dynomutt & Blue Falcon
