This week we’re doing something a little bit different and instead of presenting an overall pick (there wasn’t a consensus) we’re instead just presenting what each of us is looking forward to this week as far as comic new releases.
Top Pick: Criminal Macabre The Eyes of Frankenstein #4 (Dark Horse) – The final book in an exceptional four-part story about alcoholic occult detective Cal McDonald’s quest to help a monster and save himself. Niles and Mitten do great things.
East of West #8 (Image) – This dystopian sci-fi western is still going strong. Though we find out more about the three horsemen, I hope Hickman starts exploring other places and people in his new world.
Ghost #1 (Dark Horse) – This is my first foray into heroine Elisa Cameron’s fight to rid Chicago of extradimensional demons. Writer’s Kelly Sue DeConnick and Chris Sebela kick this series back off with a number one issue, and it looks like a good one.
Hit #4 (BOOM! Studios) – Gritty, bloody noir cop drama that does everything right. It’s a dirty L.A. Confidential that you have to read.
Top Pick: Imagine Agents #3 (BOOM! Studios) – The first two issues of this series has left me with a smile on my voice. Cut and entertaining, the series is like a mash-up of Men in Black and Ghostbusters where the ghosts are imaginary friends.
The Midas Flesh #1 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – The first release of BOOM!’s BOOM! Box line of comics, the series is from some of the minds behind Adventure Time, so expect it to be entertaining.
Saga #17 (Image Comics) – One of the best ongoing series period. It’s a mix of everything you could want in a sci-fi series, and it most importantly has heart.
Uncanny Avengers #15 (Marvel) – After the shocking events of last issue, how can this not be on the list? I expect a fake out, but who knows.
The Wake: Part One #1 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – Here’s your chance to catch up with the series. It’s not what you expect, it’s so much more…. and amazing.
