Pick(s) of the Week: Coffin Hill #1 and so many more….

COFFIN_Cv1_REV_823iqzml0v_Coffin Hill stars Eve Coffin, a rebellious, teenage lowlife from a high-society family with a curse that goes back to the Salem Witch trials.

Following a night of sex, drugs and witchcraft in the woods, Eve wakes up naked, covered in blood and unable to remember how she got there. One friend is missing, one is in a mental ward—and one knows that Eve is responsible.

After a stint as a Boston cop that ends in a bullet wound and unintended celebrity, Eve returns to Coffin Hill, only to discover the darkness that she unleashed ten years ago in the woods was never contained. It continues to seep through the town, cursing the soul of this sleepy Massachusetts hollow, spilling secrets and enacting its revenge.

Set against the haunted backdrop of New England, Coffin Hill explores what people will do for power and retribution. Noted novelist Caitlin Kittredge, author of the Black London series, brings a smart, mesmerizing style to comics. Artist Inaki Miranda brings his dynamic storytelling to Coffin Hill, following an acclaimed run on Fairest.

Andrew:

Top Pick: Coffin Hill #1 (Vertigo) – Witches are back. FX has American Horror Story: Coven, Lifetime has The Witches of East End, now Vertigo has Coffin Hill. I’m going to check out all three (yes, even the Lifetime show).

Batman #24 (DC Comics) – I THINK this book signals the end of the one-off villain origin issues. ‘Bout time. Looking forward to getting back to Zero Year.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #4 (Titan Comics) – I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, dinosaurs and a machine gun toting Albert Einstein, how are you not reading this?

Cryptozoic Man #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Comic Book Men‘s debut series. It’ll be interesting to see what comes out when lifelong comic fans become creators instead of consumers.

Star Wars #10 (Dark Horse) – Brian Wood kills it monthly with this series. It reminds me of the original Star Wars trilogy of my childhood.

Brett:

Top Pick: Coffin Hill #1 (Vertigo) – Did you not read the description above? Vertigo is seeing a second (or is it third or fourth?) renaissance with amazing releases that have consistently entertained.

Death Sentence #1 (Titan Comics) – You can read my review here. The first issue knocks it out of the park.

Molly Danger Book 1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – Expect a review later today. Jamal Igle’s Kickstarted series is everything I hoped it would be… and that’s fun!

Rocket Girl #1 (Image Comics) – A teenage cop from a high-tech future is sent back in time to 1986 New York City. Sold.

Superman/Wonder Woman #1 (DC Comics) – The series sounds intriguing and a lot of what’s been said about the series has me wanting to check it out. Writer Charles Soule is talented and proven he can breathe life into series that shouldn’t work, so crossing my fingers.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Battling Boy Vol. 1 (First Second) – Expect a review this week, but this new series by Paul Pope is amazing.

Scott:

Top Pick: Batman #24 (DC Comics) – It’s been a long month away from the regular DC titles, and I can’t wait to jump back in to Zero Year. Plus, this issue is double the size of a normal book, and while that does mean double the price, it also means double the fun.

Afterlife with Archie #1 (Archie Comics) – I never, ever thought I’d be interested in reading an Archie comic, but thanks to the involvement of Francesco Francavilla on interiors, I decided to give it a look. I’m glad I did, and you will be too.

Rocket Girl #1 (Image Comics) – I don’t know a whole lot about this series, but anything sci-fi is intriguing to me, and Amy Reeder is a brilliant artist that I’m happy to see working on an ongoing comic.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Lazarus Vol. 1 (Image Comics) – Unsurprisingly, one of the most vital and engaging new series in 2013 comes from two of the best creators working in comics, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark. Do yourself a favor and pick up this first volume so that you’ll be ready to jump in when it returns from hiatus.

Vertigo Announces 6 New Titles

Vertigo Comics has confirmed that American Vampire will be returning this December, but also announced the following all-new, bold, and exciting series:

  • Hinterkind – Decades after “The Blight” all but wiped out the human race, Mother Nature is taking back what’s hers and she’s not alone … all the creatures of myth and legend have returned and they’re not happy. After her grandfather disappears, Prosper Monday must leave the security and seclusion of her Central Park village to venture into the wilds to find him, unaware of how much the world has changed. An epic fantasy adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world, Hinterkind is written by Ian Edginton and illustrated by Francesco Trifogli, and debuts this October.
  • The Discipline – Launching this December, The Discipline is a dark, erotic thriller about a privileged young woman named Melissa who is thrust into a centuries old battle between good and evil. She begins an affair with a mysterious man named Orlando who opens her eyes to a sexually sinister world she never knew existed. Through this ritualistic seduction (“The Discipline”), Orlando unlocks Melissa’s inner power and then enlists her into a shadowy war that has been fought for centuries. The Discipline comes to you from writer Peter Milligan and artist Leo Fernandez.
  • Dead Boy Detectives – Spinning out of the pages of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, two dead British school boys star in their own monthly series and solve crimes in the 21st century with the help of a new female accomplice. Premiering in November, Dead Boy Detectives is written by noted British novelist Toby Litt with layouts and painted covers by Mark Buckingham.
  • Suiciders – Hitting the spinner rack this December, this new series marks the incomparable Lee Bermejo’s debut as an ongoing series comic book writer and artist. Suiciders follows the lies of two futuristic boxers – one on top of the world, the other trying to fight (and kill) his way there. Set in Los Angeles after “The Big One,” “Suiciders” is the wildly popular reality sport that contestants are literally dying to be a part of … and to be the best, you have to murder the best.
  • Coffin Hill – When she was 15, Eve Coffin summoned a darkness that had been buried since the Salem Witch Trials. Now Eve’s back to harness the evil that destroyed her friends and is slowly taking over the sleepy town of Coffin Hill. This is a series full of magic, madness and murder via a twisted family of New Englanders. Arriving in stores this October, Coffin Hill combines the talents of artist Inaki Miranda with writer Caitlin Kittredge, a young, dark fantasy author whose writing includes the Nocturne City, the Black London, and the Iron Codex series of novels – which include the recently published titles Dark Days and The Mirrored Shard.
  • The Witching Hour – Just in time for Halloween, this anthology-style one-shot collects short stories exploring witchcraft written and drawn by some of the most talented veterans and newcomers in the business – including Kelly Sue DeConnick, Cliff Chiang, Lauren Beukes, Emily Carroll, Matthew Sturges, Shawn McManus, Tula Lotay and many more.

And of course, how could you talk about all of the exciting projects on Vertigo’s plate in 2013 without discussing the highly anticipated Sandman prequel miniseries from writer Neil Gaiman and artist J.H. Williams III?

The Sandman: Overture will officially launch on October 30. The miniseries will be published every other month, with a special, oversized issue (including interviews, rare artwork, and more) hitting stands in between the release of each new issue.
