Each week hundreds of new comics hit the stands, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones we feel have the best shot at heating up. Here are our picks of the week for delivery 3/15/17:
As I mentioned in the New Comic Spec Review video, this is a small week for me. Going to be placing some online orders though to make up for my lack of weekly shop pick ups. May just pick up the rest of the Flintstones series. Heard a lot of good things about it and picked up #1 to give it a try. Anyway, on to the picks of the week….
Death Be Damned #2 – First issue caught me enough with its weird vibe that I wanted to read on.
Divinity III Escape from Gulag 396 #1 – This Divinity III stuff has me hooked. Loving the Soviet Russian angle on the history of the Valiant Universe. I normally do not buy crossovers of event books but am loving this one.
Spookhouse #3 – As I said in the video, I just love Eric Powell’s work. Fun and creepy. the little ads he puts in the book ads to the fun.
Red Sonja #3 J Scott Campbell Cover – I am not really a fan of his work, nor of the series, but I get J Scott Campbell books signed and graded at NYCC every year. People gobble them up. These have the potential for growth.
The One For the Love of the Cover
All-Star Batman #8 Francavilla Variant – Surprised neither Mel or Poyo picked this one. Francavilla is a master and this cover is just beautiful.
The Odd DC One on the List
Superman #19 Gary Frank B Variant – Not sure why this is sold out at Diamond. Not sure who is concealed on the cover. But I need to know more.
The No Brainer
God Country #3– Already selling out online. Will see it sell out at Diamond and go back for a second printing at least. Expect a third print for #2 to be announced as well.
The Pick of the Week
Neal Gaiman’s American Gods Shadows #1 – I think the real money may be in the ashcan or the ECCC Variant, but not going to miss picking up a new Neal Gaiman book that has a TV show tied to it.
Like I mentioned, really small week. But let us know what you are spec-ing on in the comment section. And as always, in case you missed it, this weeks New Spec Review Video
