Each week hundreds of new comics hit the shelves, 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 8/17/16:
What an amazing week of comics coming out. So many good books. A very heavy Dark Horse week too, with some new books and returning books.
Black Hammer #2 – Loved the first issue and cannot wait to see where this goes. Fun read right at home with Hellboy at Dark Horse.
Rumble #13 – Such a great book, dynamic art and awesome story. This month’s issue has a cover by horror legend Richard Corben!
Tales from the Darkside #3 – Joe Hill doing classic anthology horror. So good.
Scooby Apocalypse #4 – As weird as it is, I cannot get enough of this odd ball Scooby series.
Demonic #1 – The Kirkman one shot has seen life again due to the series coming out, while it is not Kirkman writing, it will be cool to revist this Pilot Season book.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Jackboot and Ironheel #1 – Nazi zombies. A Royal Air Force Tailgunner is held captive in a creppy castle after being shot down. From IDW and done by Judge Dredd’s Max Millgate.
Runner up Pick of the Week
Supergirl Rebirth #1 Adam Hughes Variant – Yes, this will be a very heavily ordered cover, potentially. People will be buying these up. I know I ordered 10 copies of this cover alone to have Adam Hughes sign at Baltimore Comic Con. These beauties will be off to grading in just a few short weeks (Batimore is the first weekend in September.)
PICK OF THE WEEK
Briggs Land #1 – I gave the heads up on this one back in May of this year. It is already being adapted for a TV show, and creator Brian Wood is adapting it. Built in spec. Cannot beat that. No doubt the book will be a good read from the preview I saw, but it cannot be passed up due to the AMC TV show coming. Paired after The Walking Dead and it could easily be a book sought after. However, with the news coming out so early that it was being adapted, this will be on a lot of speculators radars. Even Outcast, which had a ton of copies ordered, is a $20 book, a buy and hold on this one.
