Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 1/3/24

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? Small week but a lot of catching up to do.

We shut down between Christmas and New Years this year, part of it was planned and part was not. Usually a slow period for comics, so we usually wind down around Christmas. This year though, my wife ended up getting surgery, and then I ended up with Covid, and then of course, my wife ended up with Covid as well. So the silence over the past two weeks was not intentional, completely. We have been taking the time to get healthy.

Also, the ads have changed, they should not be as intrusive as they were. The ad server contract that I had expired at the end of December and we are switching back to the old way. The intrusive ads should be disappearing. But please let me know if they pop up.

With that said, lets take a look at what is on tap for this week, the first new comic delivery of 2024.

New Series/#1’s
Beware The Planet Of The Apes #1 – Nova from the original Planet of the Apes movie takes center stage in this series

Alongside her husband, a former professional MMA fighter and the unofficial brawn to her brains, she’s moved far from the busy city to open up a quiet little detective agency. At first, the simple cases this nook of the world has to offer were exactly what she was looking for, but there’s more to the quaint hamlet than Linnea could have possibly imagined, and something truly sinister pulling the strings… Eisner-nominated scribe Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place, Creepshow) is joined by fan-favorite artist Fran Galán (The Amazing Spider-Man) for an unexpected detective tale perfect for readers of Reckless and The Department of Truth!
