The best part of a new relationship is the first three weeks, right? The rush of the new, the gravitational pull of the sudden other-ness in your life, the almost-illicit charge of nothing else mattering…and then it’s time to pay the bills. Well, the honeymoon is over for the SEX CRIMINALS. Can Jon and Suzie survive Jon and Suzie?

Pick(s) of the Week: Hawkeye Vol. 1 and so many more!

hawkeye vol 1 coverThis is a solid week for debut books with over a half dozen new series to check out, but this collection of the amazing Hawkeye is absolutely the top pick. I know it’s a trade paperback, but the series is absolutely amazing and one of the top series that Marvel puts out, in both its story telling and its art.

Everything about it is engaging and all it’ll take is reading a few pages to figure out why it’s beloved by so many. You should already be getting this series, but if you aren’t or haven’t read any of it yet, this is a perfect place to start and find out what you’ve been missing.

Check out the rest of our picks below:

Brett:

Top Pick: Transformers: Dark Cybertron #1 (IDW Publishing) – It’s been building to this, IDW’s massive Transformers crossover event that finally sees Shockwave’s plans come to fruition. I can’t wait to see what all those pieces have been building to in one of the most fun group of comics out there.

Amazing X-Men #1 (Marvel) – A team of X-Men head out to try to save Nightcrawler!

Drumhellar #1 (Image Comics) – Riley Rossmo’s art should be enough, but on a series that sounds this trippy, it’s going to be awesome.

Legends of Red Sonja #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Women lend their talent and write their take on the classic character in this anthology series. A fantastic idea I’d love to see more of.

Trillium #4 (Vertigo) – A love story through the ages, the first three issues have all been pretty amazing.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Hawkeye HC Vol. 1 (Marvel) – See above for my reasons, but you should already own all of these!

Scott:

Top Pick: Ten Grand #5 (Image Comics) – After the behind the scenes nonsense with Ben Templesmith, I’m excited and nervous to see how C.P. Smith does on art duty. Templesmith brought such a unique look to the series and I hope that Smith does the same.

Alex + Ada #1 (Image Comics) – Full disclosure, I don’t know anything about this comic apart from the premise, which is that it’s a sci-fi story about Alex, who gets a ridiculously realistic android, called Ada. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but it’s an interesting start to what could potentially be great science fiction.

Batman: Black and White #3 (DC) – I love the idea of of Batman short stories, and with a cover by the amazing poster artist Olly Moss, I’m definitely going to pick this one up.

Fatale #18 (Image Comics) – Every issue of Fatale is great, but this issue sees Josephine exert her power through television, which is a really fascinating idea. I can’t wait to see how that works out.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Hawkeye Vol. 1 (Marvel) – Come on. I don’t even know what to say. It’s unlike everything else on the stands, and it’s so engaging and fun. Everyone should read it.

DEADLY CLASS #1

story RICK REMENDER

JANUARY 22
32 PAGES / FC / M
$3.50

It’s 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. He has no money. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can’t focus in class, thanks to his mind constantly drifting to the stunning girl in the front row and the Dag Nasty show he has tickets to. But the jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin’s top assassin, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class he’s failing is “Dismemberment 101,” and his crush, a member of the most notorious crime syndicate in Japan, has a double-digit body count.

Welcome to the most brutal high school on Earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates’ poison.

Join writer RICK REMENDER with rising star WESLEY CRAIG (Batman) and legendary colorist LEE LOUGHRIDGE (Fear Agent) to reminisce about the mid-1980s underground through the eyes of the most damaged and dangerous teenagers on Earth.
