Happy Easter Weekend edition!!
Weekly Spinner Picks is all about the hot comics of the week and getting to know the tastes of the writers at Comics: The Gathering. Each week the CTG contributors spotlight which comics they are most looking forward to on Wednesday and how those picks got to the top of their to-read piles. Let us know if you agree or not with our picks and most importantly don’t forget to add your list!
Darth Vader #4: Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca continue the ascension of our favorite Dark Lord! This issue has Vader return to Geonosis to build an army and some sort of revenge tale involving the Battle Droids. I’m hoping for some more development into the new character introduced last issue, Alphra. Don’t forget issue 3 sold out as it hit the stands so you if you want to guarantee this issue you should add it to your sub.
Jupiter’s Circle #1: Writer Mark Millar expands the Jupiter’s universe with the help of artist Wilfred Torres. This is a prequel of sorts with a look at before the family dynasty of Jupiter’s Legacy.  I loved Legacy and have no doubt this will be amazing. The preview pages I’ve seen look beautiful!
Rebels #1: I’m always on board for an original story by writer Brian Wood. Here is joined by artist Andrea Mutti for a tale set in 1775. With an independence war brewing between colonies a young marriage is tested on the home front and the battle lines.  
Savior #1: A new story by Todd McFarlane!! Woohoo!! I’ve always been proud to be a McFarlane fanboy! Here is joined by artist Clayton Crain in a story revolving around the question, “what if the most dangerous man on Earth also the one trying to do the most good?”.

Not the biggest com/ic week for me but that doesn't matter because DAREDEVIL is coming on Friday!!!

Ant Man #4: This is probably my favourite new Marvel comic of the year. I have such an amazing time reading this book and that's thanks to Nick Spencer's great sense of comedy. Every issue is a blast and I can't wait for issue #4.

Nameless #3: Grant Morrison's latest indie series has been building towards great things and I'm hoping this issue steps this series up into amazing territory.

Huge Congervence week for me but besides those;

Savior #1 Some new McFarlane IP! I love the mans art but his writing is awesome too. When I heard about this title about two months ago or so the ad posed an interesting question. What if the most dangerous person is also the one who wants to do the most good, or something to that effect. With Spawns new arc taking a crazy twist and the original Spawn stomping around in his new title, I have high hopes for this one.
