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.
Small week for me even though there are a ton of books coming out.
Atoll #2 – I love Tim Daniel’s fan, I love great white sharks. Easy sell for me. Good read too.
Nailbiter #30 – Good bye old friend. This book has been a Returning favorite for the past 29 months, following it being a pick of the week. Last issue, which is sad that it is going away, but very interested to read the last chapter. I will say this may not be the last we see of it.
The One With the Walking and the Dead
The Walking Dead #165 – cannot pass up a Walking Dead book. All books are going to be $10 wall books in a few months.
Royal City #1 – Jeff Lemire’s new book. Preview looked good. I do like his work as many other people do as well.
Savage Things #1 – Justin Jordan’s new book from DC. Previews made it look good. Could be a winner.
Image Plus #11 – Negan’s story is starting to wrap up. But the previews of the books will keep this of interest at $1.99. Previews Plastic this month, which looks crazy.
Paper Girls #12 – BKV’s strange but awesome book. Great read each month.
The Variant Event
Deadpool #28 Venomized Variant – The Venomized variants are starting to hit this week. This is this weeks best looking if you are only going to grab one.
Small Press Gem
AmeriKarate #1 – I cannot comment on how good the book is, I haven’t read it nor have I seen the promo. But it is sold out everywhere. If you find any, grab a copy and flip it.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Smoketown #1 – Baltimore area writer, Phillip Kennedy Johnson, cranks out an awesome crime book in the vein of David Lapham’s Stray Bullets
The Pick of the Week
Death of Hawkman #6 Bill Sienkiewicz Variant – You have to love a book that comes out on Wednesday that is already selling for more than cover before the book is even released. It is a split 50/50 cover, so grab a couple if you see them. Already selling or $15-18 on eBay. Keep an eye out for Mycomicshop to see if copies list.
