All Hail #NewComicDay! Here are some books we think you should check out this week!
Batman Eternal #1 -You know… I was thinking that there weren’t enough Batfamily books out there. But, wouldya look at the list of names on that cover? How can you not pick this up??
Shutter #1 - Friend of the show joekeatinge has a new book out on Image and its all about a girl named Kate Kristopher the world’s greatest explorer. Scott Snyder says its “bold, smart fun — a stunning book on every front.” While kierongillen said it’s “oyous and Heartfelt science-fiction pop with all the capital-R Romance of the last roll of polaroid film on Earth.” How can you turn that down??
Nightcrawler #1 - Chris Claremont and Nightcrawler return to X-Men. ‘Nuff said.
Iron Fist: The Living Weapon #1 - My only real knowledge of Iron Fist came from our lord and savior mattfractionblog and Ed Brubaker, and that’s going to be hard to top, but maaaan am I excited. Hey, have we heard anything new about those Marvel Netflix Series?
Lumberjanes #1 - The book we were so excited for it got it’s own post. If you skip this one you’ll probably be the only person on the internet that did. gingerhaze ohheygrace and brookeallen are going to be superstars.
Wednesday, to everyone else it’s Humpday, the middle of the week, the bottom of the doldrum-pit that is the weekly grind, but to all of us comic fans it’s the shining beacon of hope and ecstasy that is #NewComicDay! Here are the books gettin’ us all riled up today:
Silver Surfer #1 - Is this the most anticipated All-New Marvel NOW comic to come out this year? All that matters is that I get to see some Mike Allred space action goodness.
The Wake #7 - You can pretty much just rest assured at this point that whatever weeks the Wake comes out, it will be on my list. Please get caught up on this series so we can talk about it. #friendship
Iron Patriot #1 -aleskot! Are we friends yet? Pretty stoked to pick this one up, especially since I know you and kellysue collaborated a bit.
The Bunker #2 - The best TV show that is actually a comic you can pick up right now. Only two issues in! Go!
The Sandman: Overture #2 - The wait is finally over. Even if I couldn’t read at all I could still look at the art in this book and be mesmerized.
Hawkeye #18 - It’s a Kate Issue…/ITS A KATE ISSUE! (This reminds me of Lost and “Kate Episodes”)
Deadpool #26 - These flashback issues have been a lot of fun, and even though I’m really excited to get to the big wedding issue coming up next, I see Cable (and uh… an enraged Hitler?) on the cover of this one and can’t wait to read it.
Rat Queens vol. 1: Sass and Sorcery - If you’re not reading this (or planning to) I assume you just woke up from a coma and this is your first time on Tumblr. Love u kurtiswiebe and johnnyrocwell
You know when you wake up, and the week feels like it couldn’t possibly get any longer, but then you realize it’s #NewComicDay and everything is going to be alright? Today is one of those days. Here are my picks for the week:
Saga vol. 3 - So much insanity happened in this last arc that I really can’t wait to go back and re-read all of it. If you’re one of the few that hasn’t jumped on the Saga bandwagon, now is a good chance to get all the way caught up before the new issue comes out in May. PS luv u oswald d heist.
Thor: God of Thunder #20 - Did you see how #19 ended?!?! Who’s ready to see Old Thor vs. Galactus. This guys is. That’s who!
Sex Criminals #5 -I’ll be the first to admit SexCrims4 fell a bit flat for me, but I just finished reading #5 and I guess the refractory period is over #ifyaknowwhatimsayin
Zero #6 - Ugh, just read Zero already, will ya? I can’t explain it, just take my word for it. And pay close attention TO EVERYTHING.
Ms. Marvel #2 - gwillow has the next comic book juggernaut on her hands, i tell u what. Issue #1 was so much fun, I can’t wait to read #2.
Letter 44 #5 - I heard so much buzz when this book first came out, but haven’t heard much since, but let me tell you something… THIS BOOK IS INCREDIBLE! It’s only 5 issues in so you can go and get caught up during your lunch break or something. Go!
