Chilling Adventures Presents Madam Satan Hell On Earth #1 – New Chilling Adventures (Archie Horror) one shot.

Notable Reprints
Detective Comics #58 Facsimile Edition – The first appearance of the Penguin gets the Facsimile treatment.

Rom #1 Facsimile Edition – Rom is back at Marvel and the original Marvel #1 is getting a reprint. Never realized Frank Miller did the cover for it.

The Hail Mary

Variant of the Week

Dark X-Men #2 Pablo Villalobos Variant Cover – Absolutely love Madelyne Pryor and this cover does her justice.

Small Press Pick of the Week
Left-Hand Path – Sci-Fi Horror small press book. Returning to their home world, a deep space crew investigates the ship that crashed there, killing everything. What they find inside it is a paradox: it seems to have no center. This is doom-laden space horror from Scott Bryan Wilson and Ken Knudtsen. You’ve been warned.

Pick of the Week
Predator vs Wolverine #1 – I am looking forward to this crossover. Wolverine vs Predator is probably the most exciting crossover since the bootleg Boba Fett vs Predator. Higher cover price featuring two franchises that have never crossed over before.
