The Wednesday One
Second issues, multiple printings (given up on including The Fix, but there are some new printings of all of the issues coming out today), a couple of new series and SSBII … Let's get rolling!!!
Second issues of Green Arrow, Green Lanterns, Superman, Aquaman and Batman come out today. Still too early to know which ones will be clear winners, but expectations are still high for Tom King to deliver a great story. I read the first Vision trade over the weekend and would bet on Batman.
|Justice League: Rebirth Joe Madureira Variant
The Justice League is back and this Madureira cover looks amazing. Something I notice is that the 2nd printings of the Rebirth one-shots only come in regular cover flavor. Considering that the variants could be ordered in the amount the retailer wanted, it will be fun to see the numbers and see which ones start heating.
|Future Quest #2
This series seems to be the surprise hit of the Hanna-Barbera-verse (unsurprisingly, as it was the one that looked the best by far), so make sure you don't miss it as the first printing of #1 is going up in price.
|Walking Dead #156
You probably read about this yesterday. I will only add a piece of information: that article has had more views in a single day than we had ever had for the whole site in the same period. Call it hype, call it passionate fanbase … people seem to care.
|Amazing Spider-Man #15
While it's true that this series hasn't been getting amazing reviews, people are excited about MJ in the Iron Spider suit. You powernapped while the JSC store variant sold out, take this as a second chance.
|Punisher #3 Becky Cloonan Variant
Another Punisher issue, another great variant, this time by series writer Cloonan. Love that she drew Mr Castle in an environment where he's not seen that often, too.
|Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 2nd Printing Hip-Hop Remix Variant
Marvel putting out a 2nd printing of a sold out issue is not news. The fact that this 2nd printing has 3 different covers is peculiar, but it has happened in the past. I think this is the first time that a hip-hop variant gets recolored and labeled as a “Hip-hop Remix” variant. If this works out, expect a lot more of these. Hip-hop variant collectors, start getting worried … now!
|Satan's Sodomy Baby II
We live in Eric Powell's world … Hillbilly #1 was great last week. This week it's time for the sequel of Satan's Sodomy Baby … Clearly not a comic for everyone, but it will not get reprinted, so it's now or never. Sets of this and the first issue will do well.
|Cirque American: Girl Over Paris #1
I'd be lying if I said I knew much about this, but it's set in the same world as a series of novels by Gwenda Bond, who also wrote a couple of Lois Lane YA novels. In any case, names such as Kate Leth and Ming Doyle guarantee that it's going to be a great comic book.
|Kim and Kim #1
After Mark's wonderful article on this book, we had to include it here. Looks great, give it a try!
That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
