Comics picks of the week for delivery 2/16/14

I love Wednesday. I love going into work and waiting for the local shops to open up at 11. I love taking an early lunch and going to the shops. I love picking up the best copies of the new books. Really, it is the whole comic buying experience. Needless to say there are a ton of new books coming out this week worth looking at. So here is this weeks picks of the week for delivery on 2/26/14.
The one you have to pick up:
Black Science #4- Rick Remender’s new book continues to be on fire.
The other Remender book:
Deadly Class #2- First issue was pretty impressive. If Remender’s streak of hit books continues, the second issue is where it is at.
The “we are glad this book is back as it was pretty hot before” one:
Wake #6- The Wake has been a great book. It went on Hiatus while they were prepping the second arc. Plus, it is Scott Snyder and Sean Murphey. Snyder is hot right now.
The Walking Dead issue of the week:
The Walking Dead #122- The Walking Dead is a cultural phenomenon. Robert Kirkman has said that Negan is coming to the AMC show. So this pretty much sums up the fact that ALL OUT WAR will be a storyline on the show. Every new character that comes from the comic has jumped in price. (See the Abraham issue #53 price jump.)
THe Ultra Violent 1:
Revenge #1- formerly Revenger #1 bring the sex and violence to Image with this new series. I read the preview in Elephantmen and it rocks. If this heats up, do not pass up getting the first appearance in the preview in the back of Elephantmen 52
The outside chance:
One Hit Wonder #1- New series drawn by superstar artist ARIEL OLIVETTI. Looking forward to checking this out.
Finally, the really outside chance:
Vandroid #1- Part man Part machine and a van. When Palm Springs Entertainment studios burned to the ground in 1984, the most definitive motion picture of a generation was lost before its time. Thirty years later, the extraordinary talents of Tommy Lee Edwards, Noah Smith, and Dan McDaid unite to resurrect this lost epic. * Complete the Vandroid experience with the remastered soundtrack from Ed Banger Records and the unearthed 1984 movie….
Let us know what you are specking on this week.

Manifest Destiny #4 sold out

Hints at new Fantastic Four movie villian

So everyone has been focusing on the cast of the new Fantastic Four movie. The casting choices have been polarizing.
