Each week hundreds of new comics hit the stands, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. Here are our picks of the week for delivery 7/27/16
Black Eyed Kids #4 – Seriously a great series. Easy enough to find the back issues and worth the read. Aftershock has media ties and it is only a matter of time before you hear that this will be a TV show or movie.
Beauty #9 – Still love the series. Great read and fascinating story. They have been doing “back story” issues since the first story arc ended.
Haunted Mansion #5 – Joshua Wiliamson doing back story on Disney’s classic ride.
Image Plus #4 – Negan’s origin and intro to new comics. Awesome.
Self-Storage #6 – Hate to see it go but dying to read the last issue.
Sons of the Devil #9 – Just love this series. Again, easily approachable with cheap back issues and a good read.
The Last Issue one
Harley Quinn #30– Simple equation on this one. Last issues usually have smaller print runs. Harley will be in a movie soon. Cool cover. Winner!
Flash #3 DC – Godspeed appears. I know people do not see this as a big deal but this is one of very few appearances we have seen of him.
Titans #1 Again, people may think it is not a big deal but I think seeing Dr. Manhattan (even if it is just his hand this time) in the DCU is a cool thing.
New Image #1
Mechanism #1 – Survival Sci-fi. Mechanism asks, ‘Is humanity worth saving?’ (no) When a prototype military robot is sent to the frontline of an alien invasion, its artificial mind must evolve in the company of a group of human survivors. As the machine learns what it means to be human, will it decide that we are a race worth saving, or find itself on the other side of the combat lines?
The Pick of the Week
But Like Maybe #1 – Instagram hit comic strip coming to comic form. Small press, so low print run. Now, throw in 3,000 to 16,000 followers for Dru Radovich and Arianna Margulis’ comics on-line, and this could heat up. Very female friendly and could be an Amazon and eBay hit.
Overall a small week. Still some killer reads. Let us know what you are spec-ing on.
