Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 6/21/17

Each week hundreds of new comics hit the shelves, 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 6/21/17:

Fairly small week for me so I will keep the picks concise.

Returning Favorites
Plastic #3 – First two issues rocked. Cannot see this being anything else than cool.

Black Hammer #10 – Picking up the Jeff Lemire Variant as I just love this Rob Liefeld inspired cover. Great book though and the best super-hero book on the market.

God Country #6 – the final issue of this great series. Sad to see it go but look forward to the ending.

Harley Quinn #22 Frank Cho Variant – I can honestly say I have no idea what is going on in the story, I just pick them up for the beautiful Frank Cho covers. Frank is here in September for a signing and I have a stack of Harleys just waiting of him.

The Reprint
Batman #24 Second Print – People are still chasing the first prints. This one sold out so fast I can see people chasing this one too.

Solar Flare #1 2nd print – I do love Solar Flare. This one has new art. I have collected every book both self-published and put out by Scout so there is no way I can pass this one up.

The Small Press Pick of the Week
September Mourning #1 – I know when you think small press you do not think Image, however, this is from Top Cow, a smaller imprint of Image, and they do small print run books. Backed by a band, and a successful kickstarter, this one could catch people off guard.

The Pick of the Week
Shirtless Bear Fighter #1 Nude Beariant – This one has it all, funny story, bears getting punched in the face, and full frontal male nudity. But seriously, this one has been sought after since the variant was first announced with prices on eBay already up in the $40 range. Not bad for a 1:25.

Let us know what you are spec-ing on.

    I thought the Solar Flare #1 2nd print already came out.

    • Anthony says:

      It may have. my local comic shop had it on their list. Also saw some other books that may be artifacts from last week in their system.

        I thought 2nd print came out 6/7/2017…

        Pestilence #1 2nd print hits most shops tomorrow though. Might be a nice pickup, since it’s print run might be minuscule compared to first print.

        So what you think new jedi character for darth vader 2, worth picking up? Or pass cause they failed to mention in sumarry so must not be important

      • Anthony says:

        I forgot to look. I was in and out of the store. Time to text message Drunk Wooky to see if he knows.

      • Anthony says:

        From Drunk Wooky, master Jedi of all things Star Wars Comics for CHU: Kirak Infil’a. He survived Order 66 because he was basically an ascetic jedi monk. He was inactive during the clone wars.

        My thoughts, he seems cool. Like an old monk Jedi. See if he sticks around.
