Pick of the Week – Ride: Southern Gothic #1
12-Gauge Comics is a publisher you probably haven’t heard of, and chances are you’re not reading their comics. Well, hopefully you’ll take a chance this week with the first of their two issue anthology, Ride: Southern Gothic #1. The pulp comic has tons of talent including Rick Leonardi, David Lapham, Ron Marz, Nathan Edmondson, Paul Azaceta and more. Every series by this publisher that I’ve read has been solid. So, do yourself a favor and sit down and give this comic a chance.
- Ride: Southern Gothic #1 – see above
- Thief of Thieves #8 – Robert Kirkman and Nick Spencer’s series has been amazing and the fact there’s grumblings this will be the next television show from Kirkman just shows you need top hop on now, before everyone else finds out about it.
- Damsels #1 – Dynamite does tough women, and this series gathers them together into one kick-ass series.
- Transformers: Robots in Disguise #8 – IDW’s Transformers line of comics is amazing and this series is one of the prime examples. If you were a fan of the cartoon, definitely grab these comics.
- Archer & Armstrong #2 – This is my favorite of Valiant’s relaunch. The first issue was filled with conspiracies and the interaction between the title characters was priceless. There’s more than enough mystery in the first issue to get me to come back for the second.
