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 our picks of the week for delivery July 25th, 2018.
The Killer B’s
Aquaman Vol 6 #38 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover – Middleton has become the hot young artist at DC. Everything he touches is golden. Great PC book even if you don’t collect Aquaman.
Detective Comics #985 Mark Brooks Cover – By far my favorite Mark Brooks cover yet. I love the bats flying around.
Flash #51 Variant Francesco Mattina Cover – there will come a time DC will do away with the killer B covers. In the mean time, pick up Mattina art at cover price. People would still buy these if they were high ratio variants.
The “Go To Marvel” Spec
Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #33 – A new character in a book that speculators, and to be honest, readers, are picking up on. Worth the grab.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Bone Parish #1 – Cullen Bunn gets optioned, a lot. He has had numerous books that got picked up as options. All that aside, he is a prolific writer who can crank out quality content. One of my favorite writers. This book is selling out online, especially cover A.
Indy Pick of the Week
Hellicious #1 – Written by two Scout alumni, Mina Elwell and AC Medina. Two really great young creators. This is a must pick up for fans of Skotti Young’s I Hate Fairyland. Fun book, I had the chance to read early on. Sold out at Midtown.
Pick of the Week
Venom #4 – hands down the big book of the week. May not shoot up in value initially, but I think this will be one of the all time great takes on Venom. Plus, Donny Cates keeps throwing curve balls and the story is fun.
