Breaking up your week in the best way possible, #NewComicDay has arrived once again! Here’s some of the books we’re looking forward to reading most this week:
The Wake #6 - Part Two, #1! The Wake returns as our story jumps two hundred years into a flooded future where nothing is the same. If you didn’t read the first half of The Wake, you missed out on one of the most exciting and unpredictable books of 2013. Think Alien if it took place in an underwater laboratory.
Hawkeye #15 - Hawkeye is back! Clint is back! David Aja is back! Everyone celebrate!
Nemo: Roses of Berlin - From the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive the Roses of Berlin.
Rat Queens #5 - Kurtis Wiebe (kurtiswiebe) and Roc Upchurch (johnnyrocwell) have created one of the most entertaining comics out there if you’re a fan of action and adventure and dwarves and elves and mages and mischief. If you’re not into those things, I’m not even sure I want to know you anyway.
Superman: Lois Lane- There has definitely not been enough Lois Lane in the New52, so you have no idea how stoked we are to be releasing this book!
Hacktivist #2 - With a government contract on the table in exchange for their pardons, Nate and Ed open the doors of their social networking company YourLife to the CIA to continue their operations in Tunisia. However, Ed may already be thinking a few moves ahead of them all, with bigger, more dangerous plans for sve_Urs3lf
The Walking Dead #122 - Does this book really need an introduction at this point?
Check these out and all the other new releases available today on comiXology!
HAWKEYE IS BACK! CLICK HERE TO GET IT IN ULTRACONVENIENT DIGITAL FORMAT!
If you’re a bit thrown off by the numbering, have no fear MattyFrac (can I call you MattyFrac??) drops some knowledge right here:
hello mr fraction i’m a bit confused and hoped you could explain why hawkeye 15 seems to?? not exist?? the last issue was 14 and the one going to be released wednesday is 16, but 15 isn’t out? have i just missed something super big? thank you very much
very simply: 16 was done and 15 isn’t yet, so rather than extend the delay, wacker thought, hey, why not ship what’s ready to go. so you get two stand-alone kate stories back to back with the fabulous annie wu, then david’s 15, “Fun and Games.” there’s still two more annie issues and a VERY SPECIAL issue drawn by our letterer extraordinaire, Chris Eliopoulos, and way more David.
Also if you do not scream your goddamn head off after what happens on the last page of 15 i am not doing my job properly. (via mattfractionblog )
I just want to take a second out of a day full of amazing comics (see: Saga, Pretty Deadly, Black Science, Red Sonja, East of West, etc, etc, etc) to let all you good folks know that the first half of The Wake is being sold as a collection today for just $9.99 and it is goooooooooood.
Seriously, the ending of issue 5 had my jaw on the floor. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
The Wake Part One by Scott Snyder, Sean Murphy, and Matt Hollingsworth.
Shane’s Picks of the Week (10/16/13)
- PICK OF THE WEEK: Hawkeye #13 - I couldn’t wait to read this before I made my picks so I read it and it’s great and bromazing and brobrobrobrobro. So glad it’s back. <3 u fraction.
- Six-Gun Gorilla #5 (of 6) - I don’t know what I’m going to do when this one ends, it’s been my sleeper hit of the year.
- Avengers #21 - I would be entirely okay if this issue is just 22 pages of people high-fiving Thor for his awesome display of radness in Infinity #4
- Sheltered #4 - It’s come to my attention that no one I know is reading this title and I on the other hand am sitting over here loving it. Can one of you check it out and talk to me about how neat it is?!
