First Wednesday of the new year promises to be bigger than the last Wednesday of 2014.
Each week hundreds of new comics hit the stands, most with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones that we think have the best chance of heating up. Here are our picks of the week for 1/7/15.
Lets get right into it:
The pick of the week:
Feathers #1– Avatar the last Airbender meets Hellboy.
A recluse boy born covered in feathers must help his firstever friend, a young girl named Bianca, as she tries to return to her home beyond the slums of the Maze. They must dodge street gangs and childsnatchers along the way, and perhaps together will learn the secrets to his mysterious past.
The Small(er) Press Gem:
Lady Killer #1– Betty Draper meets Hannibal. Joelle Jones new book. Love her art.
The rare Marvel on the list:
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1– People love the girl who dates Wolverine and beat Thanos in a fight. All while dressed as a Squirrel. Lot’s of fan girl cross over, plus Marvel Women books have been doing really well. People do love Squirrel Girl
The rare Marvel on the list Part 2:
Ant-Man #1– strong showing of variants, including the one of a kind “Shrinking Ant-Man” cover.
That is it for us this week, as always, let us know what you are spec-ing on.
