Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 6/10/20

Every week, hundreds of new comics hit the stands, 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 6/10/20.

Weird week, very small week as things ramp back up, Dark Horse is all trades, with no new comics.

New #1’s
Deep Blue #1 – new series from small press publisher Mythos Comics that looks interesting. Dobbs is the lone human survivor of an artificial intelligence apocalypse. Tortured and interrogated by “mechs” who believe he is their creator, his only desire is to be freed from his torment… until he makes a shocking discovery that changes everything.

Faithless II #1 – mature themed book returns for a second chapter. There is an incentive Thank You cover that was one per store that could be a good grab.

Old Haunts #1 – New series from AWA worth checking out, will at least be a good read.

Rick and Morty Go to Hell #1 – Hell Yeah! Rick and Morty take a trip down below. I know a lot of spec is off the series but still a fun read.

Cimmerian Red Nails #1 – the next book in the mature themed Conan series that brings him back to his pulp roots.

Adventureman #1 – New series from Terry Dodson and Matt Fraction. In this WILDLY AFFORDABLE TRIPLE-LENGTH FIRST ISSUE, revisit how the legend of the greatest pulp hero of them all, ADVENTUREMAN, ended in a heartbreaking CLIFFHANGER with our hero facing execution at the vile hand of his ultra-nemesis BARON BIZARRE on the eve of the MACABRAPOCALYPSE…or did it?!? Eighty years after his apparent demise, single mother Claire and her Adventurefan son Tommy seem to be the only two people alive that remember the thrilling ADVENTUREMAN sagas…but from that memory burns THE SPARK OF RESURRECTION! WHERE HIS STORY ENDED…HER STORY BEGINS! This sense-obliterating, earth-shaking, imagination-quaking adventure that spans generations

For the Cover

Black Cat #11 – Loving the J Scott Campbell cover on this regular edition. But I am liking the Zombie Variant by Greg Land as well.

Ones to Watch
Ice Cream Man #19 – We have seen Ice Cream Man random issues heat up because of covers. This cool how to be a ghost cover could be one of them.

Archangel 8 #2 – Midtown is limiting this one, shows the new publisher is getting good attention right from the start.

The Ones Everyone is Watching
Bitter Root #8 Purple Rain Cover – Nice looking homage to Prince. This book has a store exclusive virgin variant but if you see this one grab it.

Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 – Punchline’s origin. We did spoilers on this one if you haven’t seen it

Small Press Pick of the Week
Zero Day Threat #1 – new series from Red5 which looks good. They have had several books optioned, so will be picking up one book at least. There is a 1:10 variant that could be a ghost. The 21st century arms race is a digital one. Instead of stealth bombers, governments are developing stealth malware for political and economical gain. Neumann, a secret government agency co-founded by the FBI, CIA ,and NSA, protects the United States from these next generation threats. However things go astray when a woman with no past washes up on the shores of Geneva with secrets that could bring down the agency in order to protect the United States real assets: its citizens.

Pick of the Week
Legion Of Super-Heroes #6 – a new character being introduced has driven the price up on this one. Find it and flip it.

  1. There are over 700 listings for losh #6! Unless you’re flipping as an undercutter, don’t bother posting it.

  2. Im wife will be picking up that JSC Black Cat book to add to her JSC collection.

    It was funny cuz my wife got to meet him about 3 years ago and she was so nervous that her hands started to sweat lol. How any of you guys experienced this?

    1. I have met him several times. He is always usually just talking to other people. But he does allow for a couple of free signatures. So I usually get a couple people to each take a couple of items or if he is talking and not paying attention, slide through several times. He has a great signature. When I have spoken with him he is very nice.

        1. Anthony said he was nervous meeting me for the first time (in person). He actually said he wasn’t sure if I was some crazed serial killer.. or something else like that. He soon came to realize I’m harmless…

          1. Ummm. I am still not sure about you. But yeah I have made a ton of friends online and you never know what they are going to be like face to face.

        2. Joshua Williamson. When I first met him he said he was a fan of CHU. He used to work at a comic shop up until he started getting big writing jobs. He was really cool and recognized me. The people around me were like who is this guy and why does the writer know who he is. It was pretty cool.

          I am a huge fan of Paul Pope’s art. He was the only one I was a little nervous meeting. I have met thousands of creators and over the years don’t get giddy about meeting them any more. But Pope made me a little giddy because I had been a fan of his art since I was a little kid.

  3. Mine was The Todd Father. I didn’t want to way my hands after I shook his. My boys where like “ok weirdo” 😂😂😂

    1. The only creator who was ever not nice was Jim Steranko. He was at Wizard World Philly years ago and had his own booth. He was there by himself and no one was paying him any mind. I walked over and talked to him for a while about comics and his career as an escape artist. I had a Nick Fury comic of his and asked if he would sign it, this was well before cgc signature series (well I am sure it existed but…), he declined to sign it. I explained I was a big fan and could I get a photo with him. He said no. I was shocked. I told him i was really disappointed. I appreciated the conversation but had apparently wasted his time. I left and he just continued to sit at his table with no one coming over to it. And then man is a legend.

      1. He was at my LCS last year doing a signing. I didn’t go cuz I had work.

        It sucks when artist get like that. I mean “we the people” are who make them who they are. If we don’t buy their work, they don’t have work.

        Take Brian Wood for example. No one cares about his work any more and a lot of publishers dropped him.
