This week is another good week for comics. There are a lot of new books coming out and some tried and true favorites. Here is what I think will pop and what I am keeping my eye on:
1. Occupy Comics- The second book to be produced by Black Mask Studios. I do not get political and I know this is a political book, while I may or may not agree with the issues, the line-up on this book is amazing. Alan Moore and David Lloyd (the ‘V for Vendetta’ team working togerther again), Charlie Adlard (‘The Walking Dead’), Art Spiegelman (‘Maus’).
2. Bounce #1 – A new Image #1 written by ‘Sex’ writer Joe Casey. Sure ‘Sex’ has gotten mixed reviews, but this looks to be a more real world alternative to Spider-man.
3. Half Past Danger #1 – Pulp books have been hot (Black Beetle) and this combination of Ninjas, Dinosaurs, and chicks looks to be a fun read and good pick up. The fact it did not show up on the Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list gives me hoe it was under-ordered.
Other books to pick up this week:
A book to pick up for name alone: I love Mike Mignola books, so the new Lobster Johnson book is on my pull list anyway. But if I was to get a book based on name alone it would be ‘Lobster Johnson: Satan Smells a Rat’.
Revival #10 – Great series from Image continues to be hot and a good engaging read.
Sex #3 – Mixed reviews but waiting for the story to unfold.
Minature Jesus #2 – Book #1 was intriging can’t wait to see how this story continues
Five Ghosts Haunting of Fabian Gray #3 – Great book and great art. The 2nd print covers and Phantom covers have become my favorite covers.
Nowhere Men #5 – Prices have cooled off a bit, but this is just a top notch book. Kind of a ‘What If?’ story for the Fantastic Four for modern times.
Sixth Gun #31 – Prices dropped off after the announcement of the show being cancled, but people still want the book and it is stil a fun read.
