The Marvel and Indie One
I feel kinda bad I didn't include much DC this week, but I remember the same thing happened with Marvel when Rebirth was in full swing, so it's payback time!!! Some indie stuff, some cool art … thank God it's Wednesday!
Marvel Elite: Welcome to the 90s Edition
(Reheated) Jim Lee (1:1000) and Rob Liefeld (1:100) are the artists for Marvel's most difficult to find covers this week. It's like Image never happened.
Marvel Proletarian: Still in the 90s
Amazing Spider-Man #26
Silver Sable returns!!! Almost at half the size of the Spider-Man logo too. It's almost as if they want to promote the character or something. Don't say you weren't warned!
|Deadpool vs Punisher #1 Hildebrant Variant
Deadpool's twice-a-month string of mini-series continues. At least this one is written by a certain Fred Van Lente, which guarantees it will be at least fun.
Indies: The Great Unknown
|All-Time Comics #2 (Bull Whip #1)
The first issue was a lot of fun. Something that would feel at home in the middle of the 80s Vigilante series (Al Milgrom's review of Johnny Ryan's work alone was worth the price). New character this month, who knows what we are getting into. A lot of fun, that's what!
Simon Spurrier seems to be about to explode and the premise for this comic sounds interesting enough. Worth a look!
Haven't been able to read this yet, but the previous numbers have been getting hotter. First issue got less than 3K copies, second one even less … Still trying to decide if the heat comes from the numbers or because it's just a great story. Let us know below!
|Z-Nation #1 Lucio Parrillo Virgin Variant
Poor man's Walking Dead? I didn't make it through the first episode, but I might be missing something. Tie-in comics are a hit and miss, but if you get Parrillo's cover, at least you know you are getting a niece piece of art. It's also co-written by Fred Van Lente, so …
|Spencer & Locke #1
The pitch was “what if Calvin & Hobbes grew up in Sin City” … I don't know why but that and the cover art grabbed my attention. Looking forward to this.
|Seven to Eternity #5 1:25 Foil Variant
Not much to add to this … First incentive variant for the title that took over the market a few months ago. Hot stuff!
Favorite Covers this week: Unsurprising if you've read this column before
I know, I know, I am playing favorites again … Shirahama and Adams are two fantastic artists and here are two covers that are absolutely awesome, what can I say? At least they are regular covers …
Swipe of the Week: Stop scrolling down, you know what it is
I know, I know, put a gorilla in a cover and I lose all perspective … I am only human, what can I say? Also, no April's Fool covers from Image this week. Scheduling in advance, people, it can be done!!!
That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
