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. Here are or picks of the week for delivery 8/16/17:
Curse Words #7 – I do love this book. Saw Ryan Browne and Charles Soule two weekends ago. Always good to catch up with Ryan. (Not that it wasn’t good to see Charles, I just know Ryan better.)
Descender #23 – I would love some movie news, but I do love this book.
Invincible #139 – Still counting down to the end of the best superhero book.
Mage The Hero Denied #1 – I have been a fan of Matt Wagner and his creations since I got in to comics. The final chapter of the trilogy kicks in to high gear.
Southern Bastards #17 – The wait is killing me on this book. Great story and art but the wait……
Motor Girl #8 – Terry Moore is just an amazing story teller. This started off as silly, and around issue 6, literally blew up with seriousness. Moore balances the two nicely.
Divinity 4 #0 – I just love the stories an art on this series. Not much spec for me but a damn fine read.
The Odd Ball Dc One
Sandman Special #1 – Wrap old Jack Kirby stories in a new cover by Paul Pope and you know I will be all over this. With Mister Miracle being a win last week, out of nowhere, this one is one to watch.
Only If You Can Get It Cheap
Sheena #0 1:100 J Scott Campbell Cover – I ordered the full set of the books back when I had them posted for $16 for the regular, the 1:25, the 1:50, and the 1:100. Do not pay crazy money for it, bt if you can get it reasonably priced, go for it.
The Long Burn Pick of the Week
Dark Nights Metal #1 – Everyone will be getting copies of this one, and with good reason. We spoiled this Saturday night. The response was over whelming. To see (redacted) back in comics is awesome.
The Speculation Pick of the Week
Totally Awesome Hulk #22 – I have been quietly grabbing copies of #20 and 21 anytime I see them and selling them in sets for $25. This is already selling for a couple of times cover price so will be sneaking this one too. I like easy money, and this one seems to be easy money if you can grab copies.
That is it for this week. In case you missed it here is the New Comic Spec Review video for 8/16/17
