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:
Zero Vol. 1: An Emergency - aleskot has created one of the most interesting new comics out. Kot explains that “every issue is simultaneously a self-contained story and a part of the big overarching narrative.” Issues #2 & #3 were some of the most jawdropping comics I read all year. Volume 1 collects issues 1-5, do yourself a favor and pick it up.
Daredevil #36 - The Astounding Final Issue! Where does Daredevil go from here? It’s the end of an era you don’t want to miss.
Red Sonja #7 - Part 1 of a new story arc from rockstar writer gailsimone! Fresh from her ordeals in the Queen of the Plague epic, Sonja is charged with the task of playing bodyguard to Hyborea’s greatest chef, even though seemingly everyone wants him dead! Join us for this unique issue of recipes, culinary technique, and decapitation! This edition features exclusive behind the scenes content only available on comiXology!
Loki: Ragnarok & Roll #1 (of 4) - What happens when Odin banishes Loki to Earth? He finds a world of outcasts that appreciate his style! While his kin sharpen their weapons, he picks up an electric guitar. For those who want their Norse Gods a little more Metal.
Undertow #1 - Atlantis is the world superpower, and Redum Anshargal is its worst enemy. If you want to break free of the system, he can offer you a place at his side, exploring the wild surface world in his watertight city barge The Deliverer. He and his hostage-protege Ukinnu Alal hunt the Amphibian, a legend that could be the key to an air-breathing life on land. But as they become the hunted, can Anshargal’s team survive long enough to turn the tables on the godlike beast they set out for?
Justice League #28 - A FOREVER EVIL tie-in! With the Justice League gone, new heroes continue to rise up throughout the DC Universe. The Crime Syndicate tried to kill him, but now Cyborg is back to settle the score-and with him are the Metal Men.
This is the color edition so its awesome except for this joke
If you didn’t know Bryan Lee O’Malley is the dude behind Scott Pilgrim.
It’s New Comic Book Day and neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night, nor intergalactic pirates, nor secret military agents, nor zombies will keep us from bringing you your new comics every Wednesday.
New Comics Are HERE!!!
Start getting excited people!
Matt’s Picks of the Week (7/24/13)
- The Rocketeer & The Spirit: Pulp Friction #1: Listen to me, OK? Are you sitting down? I’m not sure if you’ve watched The Rocketeer movie was a young chap like myself, but you really should before going any further. How about The Spirit, ever heard of him? He’s an iconic Will Eisner creation that set the bar for so many great superhero comics. Not only that, but Mark Waid is writing these two characters together. Oh, and Paul Smith on pencils? Have mercy on all our souls.
- Captain America Vol. 7 #9: We all know I worship at the House of Remender daily. But you really should be checking out this Cap run. It’s totally different than the Brubaker run that many folks fell in love with, and that’s why I dig it. It’s different and takes Cap in a brand new place and breaks him down to his core: a guy that will always stand up for those in need. I’m tearing up just thinking about it!
- Capote in Kansas: Boy howdy, how about that Phillp Seymour Hoffman cat in that Capote movie? Pretty good. What if we could COMBINE Hoffman as Capote with Daredevil’s Chris Samnee drawing the darn thing? My socks just got blown off. ONI Press brings along Ande Parks, whom we all know and love, for a fantastic graphic novel.
