Welcome to this weeks spec. This is where we pick the winners each week we (or shall I say myself) think will be spec worthy, a great read or just cool looking art on the cover.
Black Cat #9 just for the cool cover.
Say what you will about him, I like him as a villain. Kang the Conqueror #1 (of 5) is on my pick-up list.
We see Amulet make an appearance in Miles Morales Spider-Man Annual #1 (Infinite Destinies). Worthy of a pick-up and who knows, could hold other surprises within.
One of my all-time favorites, Moon Knight #2. Lots of high hopes for this new volume with the upcoming Moon Knight show on Disney+.
Star Wars #16 (War of the Bounty Hunters) because everyone should be picking up these for the most part. Plus, I like this cover with Luke and his yellow saber.
Like above, but also because this one has a pretty cool McNiven Fett and Vader regular cover for Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (of 5).
I’ve never read or played any of the Warhammer stuff but Warhammer 40k Sisters Battle #1 (of 5) kind of makes me want to probably cause I like the cover.
Slow week for DC. Only thing on the radar is Nice House on the Lake #2 (of 12) (2nd Ptg) for you Tynion fanboy and girls.
Now there is also Sweet Tooth the Return TPB which will go nicely with my omnibus I picked up and still need to read as I want to read it before watching the show.
Indie and Small Publisher Picks
Might not be for everyone but I’m gonna check it out myself. Killer Queens #1 is hitting shelves from Dark Horse about some super gay galactic assassins.
Also out from Dark Horse is The EC Archives: MD HC. I love the old EC comics and instead of spending a fortune hunting down the individual issues you wouldn’t want to manhandle anyways to read, this is the next best thing.
Star Wars High Republic Adventures #7. Do I need to explain why?
Nocterra #6 is one for the read. If you’re not reading this title, you probably should be. It’s been fun so far.
Radiant Black #5 gets a 3rd print. For you completists and who are onboard for this ride. I must admit, the first issue almost made me never come back but after reading the following issues to catch up, I’m now enjoying it. I just hope it doesn’t get too power rangery or whatever.
I do like this variant cover for this new printing though..
This one got my attention cause they mentioned John Wick in the solicitation. I got an advance preview but have yet to read it of Second Chances #1. I should get on that but it still makes my list for this week as a potential winner. I like the fact that all the interiors are black and white. Not sure why but love black and white comic interiors.
The Box #1 from Red 5 looks like a potential good read. Probably gonna get overlooked and under ordered. If it’s good, might see some heat as Red 5 has had some success on the secondary in the past.
Dark Blood #1 gets a second printing. Someone already listing these at $15 on eBay. Could be a worthy grab if this series takes off as I anticipate some shops were still trying to let go of the first print.
There’s also a Dark Blood #1 (of 6) (3rd Ptg De Landro) on the way.
Eat the Rich #1 (of 5) (Cover A – Tong) is another title I’m looking forward to from BOOM! studios.
Been looking forward to this one-shot as well. God of Tremors One Shot.
