The 1:25 One
Five Wednesdays in August translates as a weak week with some weird stuff like Neal Adams' Sixpack And Dogwelder Hard-Traveling Heroz #1 variant, Northguard #1 being sold out at Midtown and some other crazy releases that are probably not worth your time. I kinda decided to stop mentioning all DC Rebirth one-shots and new series, unless they look great, because it will never end … NEVER!!! It makes for a short article, but it's time to stop mentioning now that the initial excitement is gone.
|Harley's Little Black Book #4 Billy Tucci 1:25 Variant
HQ travels to the Bombshells universe and Tucci's 1:25 variant seems to be the pick of the week. If you ever thought one Harley was not enough, this book will probably give you two! Not very interesting for the rest of us, though. But the next two issues feature Neal Adams and Simon Bisley respectively, so keep an eye out for those.
I read Deathstroke: Rebirth yesterday and I really enjoyed it. You can tell from the first page it's written by Christopher Priest, but that's only a good thing.
All-Star Batman and this are, in my opinion, the best books of the relaunch.
|Kingsway West #1
This book, like Wood's Brigg's Land last week, is a Dark Horse book so typically not a good investment. But it will probably be a great read and the Fantasy vs Old West pitch sounds great. I mean, they even made a movie based on Cowboys vs Aliens, so who knows?
|Once Our Land #2
Second issue of the very successful Scout edition of the self-published book. If #1 had a small print run, I guess this will be smaller?
|Venom Space Knight #11 Gerardo Sandoval 1:25 Variant
Kick-ass Venom cover and the perfect warm-up for the “real Venom” cover coming soon. Another 1:25 that will see an immediate price spike.
|Duck Avenger #0 1:10 Variant
This was pointed by Ben S at the g+ community and with good reason, it's a tribute to a superhero cover (Silver Surfer #4) on a Disney comic and those always end up paying up.
That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
