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 12/27/17:
Last comic delivery of the year. It is a very light week, very slim pickings for spec on regular comics. Here is what we have though.
Imaginary Fiends #2 – Really enjoyed the twisted first issue. Looking forward to the story unfolding.
Beauty #18 – One of my favorite comics. Jeremy Haun has created an awesome story.
Redneck #8 – Donny Cates is the man. Redenck is a great series, Texas Redneck Vampires on the run.
Moon Knight #190 – I have been enjoying this new take on Moon Knight. Marvel tends to start strong with the series and then they fizzle out. Hoping this new direction keeps for a while.
Bonehead #1 – Image/Top Cow’s new series. This one will probably be more miss than hit, but it was an interesting read.
The DC Heavyweights
Hawkman Found #1 – We saw in this months Metal #4 that Hawkman has been reborn as a giant, feral, Hawk-monster and is in charge of the World Forge. We find out how he gets there.
Doomsday Clock #2 – The Watchmen cross over into the DC universe. The first issue was good, looking forward to how the rest of the book unfolds.
The Marvel Heavyweights
Amazing Spider-man #793 – Peter Parker gets a symbiote again. Look for the Ryan Stegman variant if you can find it.
Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi Storms Of Crait #1 – Last Jedi tie-in. Find out about the mineral planet Crait! Long before it became a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa led the Rebellion there in search of a new home
Thanos #14 – Donny Cates penned story featuring the Cosmic Ghost Rider. Issue 13 has heated up as a result and this issue features Cosmic Ghost Riders First Cover Appearance.
The Pick of the Week
Phoenix Resurrection Return Of Jean Grey #1 – Marvel’s big book of the week. We ran spoilers of this last week and the response was huge. There are 11 covers on this one, but I am sticking with the regular priced Artgerm variant.
