Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 1/18/17

Each week hundreds of new comics hit the stands, 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 1/18/17:

Returning Favorites
Black Hammer Giant Sized Annual #1 – Great book, and filled with super star talent. The regular series is great, can see how the Annual lives up to that greatness

Descender 18– this one is on the top of the read pile each month. Just that cool of a book.

Divinity III Aric – While this is a totally new book, the Divintiy series from Valiant has been incredible. This alternate history version with Russia taking control of the world has been awesome.

Hookjaw 2 – setting aside the crappy way they treated the US military, it was a fun book. The shark in this one, Hookjaw, is going to be bad ass.

Manifest Destiny 25 – Again, another top of the stack book. Skybounds over looked gem.

Motor Girl 3 – Terry Moore’s series keeps getting weirder and more interesting. Not one to miss.

Puppet Master 20 – Just a great throw back to the classic VHS horror movies of the 80’s. I really look forward to this book.

They’re Not Like Us 13 – Sporadic schedule but a great read.

New Image #1
Few 1 – very interesting dystopian future book. Image new releases have been on fire lately and this one is a can’t miss. Grab and hold.

Small Press Pick of the Week
Dollface 1 – the new series from the creator of the cult favorite Zombie Tramp. This one will be a win but there are several variants, as well as, store exclusives. There has been a lot of hype on it, and that is not always a good thing for spec. However, we can still expect a relitively low print run, which may surpass demand.

Pick of the Week
Curse Words 1 – cannot pass up a Ryan Browne book. Have been a fan of this one since the ashcan was given out at Diamond Retailer Summit. Plus Ryan is super jazzed for this. Look for the One Per Store Variant.Already sold out at TFAW.

That’s it for us. Let us know what you are spec-into on.

    Manifest Destiny has been in my pullbox from issue #1. I have got a few copies of Dollface coming my way, and I will probably grab a couple more tomorrow.

    I couldn’t take a chance and just nabbed a nice copy of Curse Words 1 Per Store Variant off eBay. Can’t be paying no Midtown type prices, $29.99 + free shipping is not a bad deal. This one goes into my PC. 🙂

    • Anthony says:

      Yes. Yes I do. She first appeared in the Dolllface #1 Diamond Retailer Summit Variant. This came out in September. Her next appearance was in the Halloween Comicfest Zombie Tramp book, followed by the Local Comic Shop day Variant, the kickstarter, and then the regular #1 (in that order). I have them all.
