Top Pick: American Vampire: Second Cycle #1 (Vertigo) – Scott Snyder’s modern vampire tale is back for a brand new volume! It’s been quite a while since we got to read up on Snyder’s spin on the vampire mythos, but we’re more than psyched to sink our fangs into the latest volume.
All-New Ghost Rider #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s latest take on the Spirit of Vengeance begins here with a new Ghost Rider and a new ride. From what we’ve seen we’re a bit skeptical, but intrigued at the same time. As long time Ghost Rider fans, it’s hard to not check this out.
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer Season 10 #1 (Dark Horse) – It’s Buffy, c’mon, do you need another reason? Dark Horse has been on a streak with Whedon properties, and they’ve done Buffy proud in the past. Check out their latest take for what should be a good starting point for all.
Clockwork Angels #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Rush + comics = awesome. BOOM! is translating the iconic band’s concept album into comic form for what should be a rocking experience.
Daredevil #1 (Marvel) – Mark Waid’s Daredevil has been one of Marvel’s longest running consistent comics. The latest volume sees him move to the West coast to pick up his life after being disbarred and his identity revealed.
Letter 44 #5 (Oni Press) – Charles Soule is comic’s hardest working writer. This series mixes politics, sci-fi, aliens and mystery. If you haven’t hopped on this now, it’s not too late, cause I guarantee everyone will be talking about it down the road.
Ms. Marvel #2 (Marvel) – Marvel’s best launch this year, the comic sees a whole new Ms. Marvel that’s believable, easy to relate to, and just amazing. Expect another sell out.
Sovereign #1 (Image Comics) – A new fantasy series from Chris Roberson that tells the story of masked undertakers facing the undead with swords, of civil wars and cultures in collision, of ancient threats emerging from the ashes of history to menace the future.
Superior Foes of Spider-Man #10 (Marvel) – Could this be better than the main Spider-Man series? This comic focuses on Spider-Man’s C-list villains and mixes action, humor, and somehow heart.
Transformers: Regeneration One #100 (IDW Publishing) – It’s a hundredth issue that should wrap up the major storylines. For folks who have fond memories of the 80s Marvel comics.
Top Graphic Novel/Trade Paperback: Edison Rex Vol. 2 (Monkeybrain/IDW Publishing) – A collection of the fantastic digital series comes to print. The comic is a humorous take on a villain who actually defeats the hero…. and what comes next.
