Welcome back people, to read all the picks that Poyo tells you that you should pick up, read, maybe flip, hug.. whatever it is you do with your comics.. anything could happen. Last week we had a sleeper hit in the X-Men Gold #1 , not due to any new characters or story but the controversy behind the hidden messages within the art.
So what’s it gonna be this week? I’ll tell you what I’m picking.. probably wrong on half or all of it, but that’s not gonna stop me from picking them.
Let’s get on with the picks shall we?
Flash #20 (DC) – This is probably my favorite DC title currently. Williamson is nailing this series. Is there a new villain in the upcoming book? There’s a traitor within Flash’s inner circle. This should be good..
Old Man Logan #21 (Marvel) – Love this regular cover, the whole series of upcoming books looks awesome. Logan lives through his past.. since the beginning. Looking forward to this to relive some of the classic stories of Wolverine.
Small Publisher Pick
Seven To Eternity #5 Silver Foil Variant (Image) – If you can find them cheap, this is the one to get. It’s already selling well on pre-orders on the secondary market. Plus it helps that the series is hot as well. You can’t go wrong with Remender. These are 1:25 but that’s only if the shops who ordered 25 copies order these as well, so expect these to be hard to find. Smaller shops likely won’t order 25 copies of this while even larger shops who ordered 25 or more copies might not have even bothered to order these.
I got two this week. Everyone should be aware of these as well.. CHU is a fan favorite for one and the other has just been hot since it’s hit the shelves with issue 1.
Solar Flare #1 (Scout Comics) – We all saw this one coming. Definitely worth checking out. It’s Scout Comics so expect small print runs on this one.
Heathen #3 (Vault Comics) – This is already sold out online. Try and find the variant as well. #2 was hard to find and almost non-existent. I expect the same of #3. My own local shop wasn’t even ordering from Vault Comics until I brought it up with them. So hopefully they start getting some of these titles in.
