Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 8/16/23

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

What is up Wednesday Warriors? Another super slow week. Money saving week, hopefully there is a surprise hit coming out this week.

New #1’s
Alpha Flight #1 – Potential for the introduction of a new Nemesis (her identity will be revealed in issue 3, not sure if it is an existing character taking the mantle or a new one.)

Bloody Parts #1 – American Mythology – Did you ever want to change everything about you? Quinn is the perfect subject: unhappy with their body’s limitations, addicted to prosthetics. They would do anything to become perfect…and Doctor Torossian, head of Trabeal’s Project CHANGELING, is about to oblige. So, get ready for a bloody tale of sci-fi-themed carnage and cybernetically assisted psychosis, in full living color! This incredible story is about to open up into a whole new world when the long-lost hero Agent ’79 is called out of retirement to try to stop Quinn’s rampage. It’s old school vs new school when an obsolete relic has to stop a cutting-edge nightmare!

The Cull #1 – Something is Killing the Children horror vibes mix with The Goonies-style adventure as five friends set off to shoot a short film on a forbidden rock near their home the summer before they all go their separate ways. But that’s not really why they’re there. One of them has lied. And that lie will change their lives forever.

Dark X-Men #1 – New Dark X-Men series and team, led by Goblin Queen Madelyne Pryor, great looking Adam Hughes cover.

Godzilla War For Humanity #1 – I want this one because Minilla is in it. New Kaiju as well. When Dr. Yuko Honda was young, she was chased by Hedorah, the smog monster, and thought it was all over… until Godzilla saved her! Now a respected professor and writer, she’s dedicated her life to showing that while Godzilla may be a monster, that doesn’t mean it and the other kaiju are enemies. Unfortunately, when a strange new monster emerges, her belief in the good of Godzilla will be put to the test. If Godzilla doesn’t defend them, what can humanity do against the might of Zoospora?

Rare Flavours Tasting Menu Ashcan #1 – New Book Book. Tantalize your senses with this amuse bouche introducing this creative duo’s next masterpiece marrying the supernatural, Indian cuisine, and the cutthroat world of chef-driven celebrity in what will be the most talked about new comic of 2023. Only will be printed once.

Uncanny Avengers #1 – A fourth volume of Uncanny Avengers kicks off with this FALL OF X tie-in. Rumor of a new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

One and Done
Chilling Adventures Presents Strange Science #1 – Chilling Adventures have brought the Archie world into Sci Fi and Horror. Great readers.

Dark Spaces Hollywood Special #1 – an all-new entry into Scott Snyder’s Dark Spaces line of white-knuckle thrillers, a character-driven tale of memories, mines, and the things we do our damndest to sweep under the rug.

What If Dark Moon Knight #1 – a new Knight is championed by a different god following the death of Moon Knight in this What If story.

Notable Reprint
Sickness #1 2nd Ptg Fluorescent Ink Cover – hot new indy series gets a 2nd printing.

Pick of the Week
Death Of The Venomverse #2 – Slow week folks, like I said, so a new symbiote takes the top spot. Two new symbiotes, including Kid Venom, debut. The Kid Venom cover is probably the winner of these, but the Black Cat Design Cover is cool.
