Most comics come out on Wednesdays, from what we hear, so we figure we can start your new comics lust on Mondays. We’ll point you in the direction of books WE are interested in, and YOU can, in the comments below, let us know what YOU are interested in, k? This week, we’ve got plenty to get excited about.
SUPERMAN SECRET ORIGIN #4 (OF 6)
story Geoff Johns, art Gary Frank
Continues the “definitive” realignment origin story line of arguably the world’s most recognizable hero, Superman. Giving issue #3 a 9/10 rating, IGN praises the story’s masterful writing and amazing artwork. Color us interested. DC Release Schedule
THE WALKING DEAD #69
story Robert Kirkman, art/cover Charlie Adlard & Cliff Rathburn
At long last… they arrive. But will things get better… or WORSE? Thus says the PR copy that accompanies the cover image. One of the better series out there, TWD is currently being made a series on AMC. Image Comics Release Schedule
If the cover by Bolland doesn’t pull you in, the continuing saga of Jack of Fable will. Bill Willingham must not sleep, with all the books he’s written in this fascinating universe. Vertigo January Releases
Only 1500 of special cover editions are available. Juan Jose Ryp shows why he is one of the best with an homage cover to Captain America #106.
Cade Skywalker cannot escape his father’s legacy, whether it comes in the form of a Jedi Master calling him back to the Jedi Order, or being faced with a mistake from his father’s past. Will Cade survive such a mistake in order to realize his destiny?
With the movie coming up, the Iron Man excitement will start taking off. Marvel is grabbing onto this cash cow. Look for the first issue here to follow the lines of the first movie. Will we get a sneak peak at Iron Man 2 in the next issue?
This pick is a WebComic, but in this day so many comics have hit the net, you’ll have to bear with me. This has been on my weekly reading list for years and I look forward to what these guys come up with every week.
Written by Jason Arron, Art by RM Guera, Cover by Jock.
Easily the best comic in publication today. If you only have 2 dollars, borrow 99 cents and buy this book. This issue looks to deliver the blood by the gallon as forces that have been on a collision course finally meet.
Written by Mark Millar, Art by John Romita Jr.
By now everyone knows about the movie being optioned and made before the comic even hit issue 4, and that this thing ships pretty much whenever it feels like it, but it’s a heck of a lot of fun when it does.
Written by John Layman, Art by Rob Guillory
Chew has a pretty original premise and Layman isn’t afraid to take chances, both with his story telling and panel work. Guillory’s artwork is very fresh and fits the series well. Jump on this issue and watch our beaten FDA agent track down a missing cock (as in rooster).
