It’s new comic book Wednesday, the best day of each week. All us comic book addicted nerds come back out (from wherever we hide) to talk about what we think is going to be the next big thing in the comic book world.
So let’s talk about them then.
This week, your old buddy Poyo, is off on a secret mission to Montreal. So instead of grabbing comics this week I am working long hours, rubbing elbows with French Canadians, and finally going to Tim Horton’s. But here is what I am spec-ing on and plan to get when I get home.
Sadly there was nothing that grabbed me this week from DC. Maybe I missed out but it doesn’t seem like too much is coming out from DC this week. Comment if I am wrong down below.
Amazing Spider-man #17 (Marvel) – Some are going to like this, some are going to hate this, but there is a new Electro in town and he is a SHE. You got it, a new character in the Electro costume and you get to meet her here for the first time.
The Image Pick
Saga #37 (Image) – Nothing beats Brian K. Vaughn at his best. Saga has grown to be hugely popular, and like The Walking Dead, is a must pick up each month. This is the book people will talk about for years and will keep drawing in non-comic readers to the fold.
The “Has Potential” Pick
Brickleberry Armoogeddon #2 (Dynamite) – The first issue was on of my picks last month. I was luck enough to score the black and white variant and did well selling it. Just like last month you have a rabid fan base for a show that may have died too soon, but this time you have the second issue sales slump, where less copies are ordered by retailers.
Spec of the Week
Killer Inside Me #1 (IDW) – Jim Thompson’s new book looks good. I do love a good crime story. It is selling out online which is a good sign.
Now, it’s on to Poyo’s Pulls of the week:
Poutine! If you do not know what it is, you are missing out. Fries covered in gravy and cheese.
