Every week, tons of new books 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 the picks of the week for delivery this Wednesday
The dreaded fifth week edition. The fifth week is just that, the fifth Wednesday of the month when publishers put out less content. This is that week. Here is what is on tap.
Batman Faze Clan #1 – Batman teams up with professional video game players in this one. Your kids know who they are.
Immortal X-Men #1 – The Quiet Council rules the Krakoan age, for better… or worse. Now, shaken by INFERNO and X LIVES / X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE they strive to hold together, no matter how much they want to tear each other apart. Writer Kieron Gillen (UNCANNY X-MEN, ETERNALS, The Wicked + The Divine, Die) returns to the world of X with artist Lucas Werneck (TRIAL OF MAGNETO) to bring us all into the room where it happens. ‘It’ being ‘the most powerful people on Earth deciding the fate of the whole planet.’ Prepare for sinister secrets to be revealed and learn that some secrets are more sinister than others…
Shadow War Alpha #1 – New team said to appear here. Spoilers tonight if so. Heard it is a fantastic read, but then again it is Joshua Williamson so no surprise.
Zvrc Zombies vs Robots Classic #1 – The original VS. title is back to reclaim its turf and introduce itself to a new world! Eisner Award-nominated duo CHRIS RYALL & ASHLEY WOOD take control of ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS and kick off the excitement with a lineup of classic adventures – all packed to the gills with action! Each issue will present an iconic tale and, in this debut issue, readers will be treated to a 26-page ‘Which Came First?’ origin story. And because we love you, each issue will also feature new WOOD covers, a new illustrated intro and outro, and an all-new story, too. Join us for the first time all over again!
Cities Of Magick #1 – New Scout series. Once Upon a Time in Old York ’ A gun-toting drifter wanders into Old York City looking for something no one’s ever seen before. He’s picked a bad time-the forces of Hyper-Priestess Isimar Rothschild, the Queen of the Chicago Conglomerate, have attacked Old York. Caught in the midst of a decade-old war between two powerful magick clans, the drifter has to figure out where his loyalties lie, if he has any to speak of, and he has to do it quick!
Something Is Killing The Children #21 – SIKTC returns after a “brief” hiatus. New jung on point with a new story line.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Darkstalkers Morrigan #1 – I love books with crossover potential. Tons of fans of the Darkstalkers video game series. Morrigan is one of the most popular characters. Excellent chance for long term book.
Quick Flip of the Week
Batman Beyond The White Knight #1 – Sean Gordon Murphy mentioned on his socials that the A cover was allocated. Allocations drive people nuts and drive the prices up. This one is selling for $20 and up pre-sale. Grab a coupe if you can and pay for the week’s worth of books.
