Comics Picks of the Week for Delivery 6/24/15

Each week, hundreds of new comics hit the stands, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are our PICKS OF THE WEEK for delivery 6/24/15.
Odd week, not a lot of big books. Hopefully I will be able to get out of the shop cheap this week. That does not mean there are not books worth spec-ing on. Let’s get on with it.
The One With the Walking and the Dead
Walking Dead #143 – Always a must pick up. Something bad is brewing, you can;t have this much harmony for too long. And with Alpha in disguise in town, there is a storm on the horizon.
The Random Marvel one on the List
X-Men 92 #1 – 1992 was a great year. X-Men cartoon was on TV and I was graduating high school. This one is the classic characters from the TV show in comic form, again. There are guys like me who will be nostalgic for it.
Small Press Gem
Mulan Revelations #1 – Rarely do Dark Horse books crack 15,000 on the print runs. So don’t expect this one to be high. A futuristic re-imaging of the classic Mulan story. Worth a peek.
The New Hot One
Fight Club 2 #2 Francisco Francavilla variant– The first issue was a hit especially for fans of the books and movie. But it had a high print run. Expect a much lower print run on this one. Continues the story with Project Mayhem kicking back in to full gear.
The Pick of the Week
Evil Dead 2 Beyond Dead by Dawn #1 – The Sam Raimi movie has a cult following. This small press book will surely sell out. Fans will want this one. It is a direct sequel to the Evil Dead movies.
Besides the picks of the week, here are the returning favorites we are looking forward to:
Spread #8 – We love Justin and Kyle’s horror Lone Wolf and Cub Series
Black Hood #5 – The dropped the f-bomb in an Archie comic, but besides that, the book is really good, dark good.
Rasputin #6 – Riley Rossmo’s historical fiction book returns.
Also on the book shelf you should look for these to get caught up on some great series (all are new and all are $7.99 if you go through the links):
Wytches Vol. 1 – Great Horror!
Postal Vol. 1 – Another great read and should be checked out
Rumble Vol. 1 – This is a favorite for many people on here
That is it for us this week. Let us know what you are spec-ing on.
