It’s that time again. Hope you didn’t spend all your comic book money on your Valentine because if you’re putting love over comics, you need to just leave.. seriously, leave now, we don’t want your kind here if your first priority is not comic books.
Here are my Special Valentine’s this week..
Batman #17 (DC) – I think King has broken out of his shell and Batman is getting great again. Really enjoying the series now. Why didn’t I pick Super Sons? Meh, just too cheesy for me. It’s for the kiddies.. and there’s gonna be a billion of them.
Captain America Steve Rogers #11 (Marvel) – I just love this cover, I’m a sucker for reflections in close ups like this.. And I think this new volume by Nick Spencer deserves more love, it’s been great so far.

Small Publisher Pick
The Walking Dead #164 (Image) – This is a no brainer. Back issues sell above cover, even for common issues. Once it makes it to the show, we see a rise in value. Even though they claim ratings are down, I don’t see the show ending anytime soon.
God Country #2 (Image) – Yes, a second small publisher pick. God Country #2. #1 was a hit, almost by surprise. I don’t think anyone expected it to do so well on release day and heat up as fast as it did so #2 is a definite pick up. Most covers are already selling out online. #1 was under ordered so #2 like all second issues might see a significant drop in total availability.
Rift #2 (Red 5 Comics) – #1 was another great read. Saw some slight heat but you can still find these in your shops. I’m picking up #2 cause the story is good, the art is good and it just has movie or show option written all over it. Plus as a bonus, you can read Tony’s letter in the back along with seeing Joe’s first appearance in a comic book..
So like always, comment, tell me what your thinking. What you like or don’t like? If you can smell my stench from miles away.. It’s all good!
