New comic book day is upon us once again and every Wednesday it’s like Christmas morning. This week has a lot of exciting new stuff and a bunch of books are hitting the shelves.
Wonder Woman 77 Special #4 (DC) – Not much going on in DC land for me, I think Superman #7 is a pickup for me but the only other thing that stands out is this issue, simply because after 4 decades, Linda Carter as Wonder Woman is just hot and this cover is hot.
Civil War II #5 Phil Noto Black Panther Variant (Marvel) – There were a couple of Black Panther variants this week but this one is a knock out. Grab it if you can.
The Image #1 + Spec + Indie Pick of the Week
Yes, this week, Remender has gobbled up 3 categories for me.
Seven to Eternity #1 (Image) – First, it’s a new Remender book. Second, he’s got art from Opena and Hollingsworth. There are 3 awesome covers with a Blank to choose from. So yes, Remender fans will be picking this up and it’s a good gamble for flippers as we all know Remender usually delivers on his stories.
Description – “The God of Whispers has spread an omnipresent paranoia to every corner of the kingdom of Zhal; his spies hide in every hall spreading mistrust and fear. Adam Osidis, a dying knight from a disgraced house, must choose between joining a hopeless band of magic users in their desperat e bid to free their world of the evil God, or accepting his promise to give Adam everything his heart desires.”
The Honorable Mention Indie Pick
Britannia #1 (Valiant) – Valiant has a new book out and it’s set in 65 AD. I love these old Roman Empire type stories. So it’s certainly on my radar to check out. I also like to point out that Valiant’s art in most of it’s books is always spot on.
My Favorite ongoing Pulls this Week
Black Eyed Kids #6 (After-Shock) – Great read.
Rumble #14 (Image) – I love this series. It’s funny, art is great. If you haven’t given this title a chance, do so. John Arcudi’s Rumble is awesome.
Invisible Republic #11 (Image) – Sci-fi with a mix of politics equals a great story. Might not be for all but certainly one of my favorite reads.
Manifest Destiny #23 (Image) – Remember when this book was hot! Well, I think it’s still great and one of my favorite reads. I think the long pause it took hurt it some but it’s been pretty consistent now.
Chew #58 (Image) – Getting closer to the end. That makes me sad but I know this type of story can’t go on forever.
Black Hammer #3 (Dark Horse) – Lemire.. you can’t go wrong with Lemire.
Dept H #6 (Dark Horse) – Matt Kindt is up there on best writers currently.
That’s all I got this week. There’s a bunch more stuff but I can’t list them all, that would be pointless.
