Something terrible happens.

heh. can’t wait!

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 LaneThere 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?

Guest Star KARA’s Picks of the Week for 10/23/13!

  • Sex Criminals #2The first issue was totally racy in the best possible way: a maturely handled, well written, immensely relatable story of female sexual awakening. Also, our heroine and her cohort rob banks because when they [redacted], time stops around them. Seriously, how are you not reading this?
  • Rat Queens #2They drink, they cuss, they fight—they’re the Rat Queens, and they’re AWESOME. They’re not “strong female characters,” they’re here to party, and tough cookies if you get in their way.
  • Pretty Deadly #1Come for Kelly Sue but stay for Emma. Her art is almost unfairly amazing. I’m so mesmerized I might not even read the words (at least at first). You’ve read the hype, now read the book.
  • Green Team: Teen Trillionaires #5Yeah, if you had that much money, you’d buy a super suit, too. This glorious trainwreck is DC Comics’ answer to Rich Kids Of Instagram and their ilk. It’s ridiculous and over the top, and that’s why I love it.

Kara supervises the international production team at comiXology and has a small army of Transformers on her desk.

Shane’s Picks of the Week (9/25/13)

  • PICK OF THE WEEK: Saga #14 - Because duh.
  • East of West #6 - I only just started reading this when the trade came out the other week, and I really really dug it. It’s got western stuff, its got sci-fi stuff, its got apocalyptical stuff. So it’s got pretty much everything good. 
  • Rat Queens #1 - If you know me you’ve probably heard me talk about this book a bunch. I’ve been really excited for this for a while and not just because I enjoy girls who enjoy magic and adventure and drinking… but mostly because of that. 
  • Sex Criminals #1 - I actually already read this and I fell completely in love with it. If I made a wishlist of two things I would want in every comic ever it would be Vladimir Nabokov references and crudely drawn doodles of people having sex in various positions. It’s like Fraction read my dream journal or something…
  • Deadpool vol. 4 #17 - This new arc, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, is so freaking good. Seriously, go back two issues to #15 and pick it up because it’s incredible. Shalvey’s art is just spot on. Best Deadpool I’ve read in a long time. 

Shane is the marketing assistant  at comiXology and can’t wait to try out the Fleshy Lightswtich.
