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 9/7/16:
This is going to be an expensive week. Real expensive. Tons of new books, lots of returning favorites.
BEAUTY #10– One of our favorite series here. A STD that gives people their perfect look but they die within a year. The second story arc has been focusing on individual stories.
NAILBITER #25– Another favorites series around here. A town that spawns serial killers. Why isn’t this a tv series yet?
PAPER GIRLS #9– BKV’s crazy good series that involves newspaper delivery girls, time travel, giant monsters, and so much more.
UNFOLLOW #11– Start with 140 people all sharing a huge sum of money evenly distributed. However, if one should die then the money is further distributed. What can go wrong?
NIGHT TRAP #3 – The fixed version of the error we reported not too long ago.
The One That Will Get the Press
ALTERS #1 – First series about transgender superheroes. Sure, there have been transgender heroes before, but this is a full book that focuses on them. I imagine stories will hit Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Already selling out on line.
ECLIPSE #1 – New Image series. In the near future, a mysterious solar event has transformed the sun’s light into deadly immolating rays. The world’s few survivors now live in nocturnal cities. But a killer emerges who uses sunlight to burn his victims, and when he targets the daughter of a solar power mogul, it falls to a disillusioned solar engineer to protect her.
GLITTERBOMB #1 – Jim Zubb’s new Image series. Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. Her frustrations become an emotional lure for something horrifying out beyond the water… something ready to exact revenge on the shallow celebrity-obsessed culture that’s led her astray.
GREAT DIVIDE #1 – New horror series from Dynamite. People die horrible deaths when they are touched by other people, and the survivors have to deal with the memories of those they killed. Two great homage covers on the book, including one by CHU favorite artist Kyle Strahm.
EVERAFTER FROM THE PAGES OF FABLES #1 – fan favorite Fables returns to comic stands
SKYBOURNE #1 – New Frank Cho series (art and story). Imagine James Bond with fantasy elements. A modern day King Arthur story.
The One with the Walking and the Dead
WALKING DEAD #158 – Whisper War has kicked off and we should be getting in to the opening salvo. Negan has already taken the head off the Whisperers, literally. Just can not pass up a Walking Dead issue as they always end up selling for over cover.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Thin #1– Jon Clark’s Famous Monsters Silver Scream Fest Award winning story finally hits stores. Already sold out at TFAW and Mycomicshop.
Pick of the Week
ANIMOSITY #1 2ND PTG – No doubt the 2nd print on Animosity will go fast, grab copies. It has sold out already and gone through multiple reprints.
