Each week hundreds of new comics hit the shelves, each with potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are our Picks of the Week for delivery 11/29/17:
GI Joe #246 – We know at this point that the Female Snake Eyes has appeared in the comic, and on the cover. This is her origin issue.
Beauty #17 – One of my favorite books on the market. An STD that makes you perfect, until you die a year later.
Moon Knight #189 – Off to a good start. I hope Marvel can keep a really good Moon Knight going.
Dark Ark #3 – Cullen Bunn’s awesome new book about the other Noah’s Ark. The one filled with horrible monsters.
Rick And Morty #32 – At this point, this is a book I have to pick up.
The Surprisingly Good DC Books
Mystik U #1 – A Gotham Academy style look at the DC magic characters. Looks very good.
Batman Creature Of The Night #1 – a cool, real world look, at what would happen if Bruce Wayne’s parents were murdered in the real world.
The Indy pick of the Week
Spawn #280 – We do get our first look at the new hero. Wait for the spoilers later.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Chasing Hitler #1– Alternate history tale about two soldiers who go to find Hitler’s body, and instead find a mystery and a chase. Cool looking book with small print run.
The Variant of the Week
Reactor #1 1:20 Variant – Try to get your average shop to order 20 copies of a Vault comic. Most won’t do it. Shops had to order 20 copies of the regular Reactor #1 to unlock this variant. Most shops will not get it. Couple that with it being a self-published Donny Cates book and that makes this one pretty desirable. Now, the doesn’t side is Reactor is the second volume of Interceptor which was a book that Donny Cates did before he was “Donny Cates” so there could be some draw for his fans.
The Pick of the Week
Batman Annual #2 – Kinda hard to pass up a book that is already selling for $25 before release. It has already gone to a Second Printing which will be out in January. This teams up Tom King and Lee Weeks, who had great success with the Batman Elmer Fudd one shot.
