Once & Future #3 – One of several new series with hot starts. Stories that are worth following as well.

For the Cover
Vampirella #4 Artgerm Cover – Love the Vampire covers Artgerm has been kicking out.
Captain Marvel #11 – Star’s heat has kind of come and gone, but a lot of changes coming for Captain Marvel. Picking up one to stash away.
Small Press Gems
Cult Classic Creature Feature #1 – cool new horror themed series from Vault. There is a Homage Cover as well. Eons ago, visitors from outer space buried an item of unimaginable power in the primordial swamps that would one day become King Lake-a quaint little basin on the edge of Whisper, USA. Millions of years later, a comet’s radioactive waves awaken the monster slumbering beneath the lake. As the beast feeds on America’s sweet, delicious youth, brain-slugs infect the quiet town, causing victims to vomit up their kill-hungry, zombified skeletons. But for seventeen-year-old Jarrod Parker, none of that stuff matters much. For him, this isn’t about the Apocalypse. It’s about payback. Nothing-not his friends, not the undead, not even the end of the world-will keep him from vengeance..
Revenger Halloween Special One Shot – Charles Foreman is an indy gem in himself. His Revenger book was fantastic. If you haven’t checked out his work here is a good chance.
Spookhouse Halloween Special 2019 – Love Halloween. Love Halloween themed books. Goon’s Eric Powell has been putting out these great stories.

Rise Of The Tyrant #1 – Small press, small print runs, giant mechs fighting giant monsters. Ok, I am in.
Pick of the Week
X-Men #1 – X-Men starts off proper moving out of HOX/POX. Cool first appearance, need to see if they use the character more. Stanley “Artgerm” Lau provides a nice cover too. X-Men have not been this hot in a long time.
