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 3/20/19:
The Image One
Die #1 4th Print – The 4th print announcement caused the first prints to be snatched up. This one sold out at Midtown. And, if you see any earlier copies, grab them.
The Marvel Ones Worth Watching
Venom #12 – continues Donny Cates epic run on the series. The Spiderman Villains Variant is awesome and sold out in advance of release at many online stores.
Avengers No Road Home #6 – continues the Scarlet Witch in Conan times Story. Could be important if Conan makes the cross over into the Marvel 616 Universe this issue.
Avengers #17 – Final fate of Dracula plus new King of the Damned. Not sure if it will be a new character or an existing, but this could be over looked.
Spider-Man Life Story #1 – Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley go back to the 60’s to tell entire history of Spider-Man. Cool higher end book which means higher price tag and could be over looked as a result. Depends on how cool it turns out to be.
Marvels Spider-Man City At War #1 – starts a brand new Marvel Universe set in the video game world. Looks cool. The game is extremely popular and we have seen video game related books pop in the past.
Guardians of the Galaxy #3 – Dark Guardians on cover. People didn’t like the characters together in issue 2 as the first appearance, so this could be the one to grab. Will we see the new Thanos this issue?
Small Press New #1’s
Dark Red #1 – New Aftershock vampire series. Sounds very cool. There was a store exclusive on it that has had high prices on it. I am a ‘Cover A’ guy most of the time, but there is a B cover to this as well.
Offbeats #1 – Antarctic Press has had some hits lately. Worth the grab if you can find it.
Tainted Love #1 – Another new Antarctic book. This one seems like it is in more demand.
Blessed Machine #1 – new series from Cave Picture Publishing . New small press book that looks pretty cool. Story sounds good as well.
Knights of the Golden Sun #5 – This book has been a spec hit. This is a great cover and could be sought after. Low print run and buyer demand.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Rise #1 – the new Scout comics release. Very Cool looking book. Scout has had some options recently, with more to come.
Marvel Pick of the Week
Immortal Hulk #15 – Marvel’s big green juggernaut. This book is hot. We posted spoilers earlier and it is leading to bigger things. Make sure to look for the Marvels 25th Anniversary Cover.
DC Pick of the Week
Naomi #3 – a must pick up as Bendis sent out tweets saying he had big things in store for the character and she has been seen in a costume coming up. Needless to say, it sold out early online.
And in case you missed it, here is this week’s New Comic Spec Review video for 3/20/19:
