Chamomile tea in a Hulk mug FTW!

Kevin’s Picks of The Week (9/11/2013)
Eternal Warrior #1: Been waiting for this one for a long time. Valiant’s all-new Eternal Warrior makes his debut and it is awesome! With an origin story that spans generations, this is an adventure I am definitely looking forward to more of.
Kings Watch #1: Classic pulp characters reunited to save the world. I don’t know what it is about revamped heroes that gets me every time, but this book has it in spades!
Justice League #23.2: Lobo: The New 52’s Lobo is here at last, and under the watchful pen of Marguerite Bennett he’s taking center stage in a space-farring one-shot that is sure to thrill. A highlight from this week’s Villains Month books - do not miss it.
Indestructible Hulk #13: It’s The Hulk in Camelot, need I say more?
Kevin tweets, tumbles, and gives the occasional thumbs up across comiXology’s various social media platforms, he is currently trying to figure out how to get to SPX this weekend.
Circa 2009: Hulk Vol.1: Red Hulk
When one of the Hulk’s oldest associates is murdered, everyone turns to the team of Iron Man, She-Hulk and Leonard Samson to solve the case. All the evidence points to the Hulk as the killer, but all is not as it seems!
Get this modern day classic for half-price today only!
Kevin’s Picks of The Week (7/31/2013)
- PICK OF THE WEEK: Beware the Creeper #5: How did I miss this series back in 2003? We’re talking classic caper comics written by Jason Hall (The Guy behind Pistolwhip and more DC Animation Tie-in comics than anyone!) and Cliff Chiang (Yeah…THAT Cliff Chiang!) set in the High Art world of 1920’s Paris, and starring a unique twist on one of my all time favorite DC characters…The Creeper!
- Goblin Hood: Creator Bobby Timony twists the familiar world of Robin Hood and his Merry Men around a cast of loveable Monsters for a fresh fantasy tale that you can’t help but love.
- Indestructible Hulk #11: New story arc spinning out of the events from Age of Ultron…Also sometimes you just need to SMASH S@#t! Plus Mark Waid and Matteo Scalera continue to knock it out of the park on the creative end of this book.
- High Crimes #4: This comic continues to do a lot of things right in a short amount of pages. Looking for a little intrigue outside the capes and tights crowd this week? Check out High Crimes. They also have a great tumblr ;)
Kevin tweets, tumbles, and gives the occasional thumbs up across comiXology’s social media platforms. He is currently still a little miffed he didn’t know about Beware The Creeper until a few weeks ago.
