The Christmas One
A bit of a quick one this week, but, honestly, unless you're a fan of store exclusives, there's nothing to send you running to the shop. Some good reads, though, and loads of Christmas covers …
|Star-Lord #1 Chip Zdarsky 1:25 Variant
I am featuring the Zdarsky variant but this is one of those books that I don't think it's going to do much market-wise. The main reason to put it in here is that I genuinely believe this is going to be a great read. And I am the first person who's surprised, but it's Zdarsky and Anka and hopefully they will get Chris Pratt's voice just right.
|Dead Inside #1
Arcudi is one of those writers who doesn't get the appreciation he deserves. His Rumble is a lot of fun and this series about a jail crimes division cop might get him some more attention.
|Gamora #1 Marco Checchetto 1:25 Variant
Checchetto has been getting a lot of love lately with his Thunderbolts cover. This week he gets a couple of covers (Punisher has a variant by him too) and interior art in Gamora. Does this character have enough personality to maintain a series?
|Justice League vs Suicide Squad #1
The jury's still out with the Suicide Squad series, it's an OK read but has the potential to be better. Will crossing over with the Justice League fix that? I don't think so. Will it bring true Lobo back? Yes, so who cares about the rest. Remember that this book comes out with 3 DC variants and then an unlimited number of store exclusives!!!
