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 11/23/16:
Wow, it’s Thanksgiving week already. This week looks like a fifth week with comics shipping. Not a huge week. Last week I got away cheap, except I got a Friday the 13th figure that cost more than all my comics. Anyway, enough rambling, here are the picks of the week.
Black Monday Murders #4 – This one is a CHU reader favorite book, first issue popped up in price. The cover price is a killer for me at $4.99
Frostbite #3 – Joshua Williamson is writing an awesome sci-fi story in this on. Great read and fantastic art.
Chew #60: This is end my friend. Last issue of Chew. Going to be sad to see this awesome comedy book end.
Harrow County #18 – One of my favorite books each month. If you haven’t read the book it’s worth reading, TV show still in the works.
Outcast #23 – Tv show season 1 is over but this book is still a good read. The action has heated up a bit and we have been given more back story on what is going on.
Small Press Gem
Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess #1 – The fan-favorite pulp heroine returns in an all-new miniseries written and drawn by Eisner and Manning Award-nominated creator Steve Bryant. Worth the look. Not a new series as Ahtena has had previous appearances, but great looking art and story.
The Pick of the Week
AD: After Death Book 1 – Jeff Lemire and Scott Snyder doing a super-team-up on this new Image book. Sure, it is only a mini-series but this book looks to be your best bet for the week (barring getting a cheap Venom #1 Sketch or 1:1000 variant)
Like I said, a small week. Besides grabbing one of the Glow in the Dark Harley Pops, it will not be an expensive week for comics (I can buy more Blue-rays on Black Friday then.)
