Watch Dogs, Evil Thor and More!
Another week, another collection of books to hunt for. But first, here are 10 observations…
The Joker was a beautiful film with an incredible lead but it is not a masterpiece.
Hickman's X was the best X-Men event in recent memory but it went out with a whimper.
The Cates Thor Spec is not going to be as powerful as the Venom stuff.
I think we need a Rambo vs Predator film.
Comics and pasta don't mix.
The Far Side is coming back. Here is my favorite one. Baby first appearances continue to rise in popularity.
The Necrosword will eventually be the new Infinity Gauntlet.
Random comic to read – Pistolwhip
Someone should do a first appearance toy article.
On to the comics…
First Evil Thor
The new Loki series gave us a glimpse at the Unfather but evil Thor has appeared before and he worked for Hitler?!
First appearance and cover for Grant Morrison's Marvel Boy
Slated to join the GOTG, Marvel Boy 1 has seen some decent sales over the past week. He appeared a bit earlier though in this free wizard giveaway. Other issue from Grant's series may prove to be very important down the road.
First appearance of Frank Miller's Year One Catwoman.
The Matt Reeves batman film is set to adapt The Long Halloween. That universe is part of the Year One universe, not the mainstream DCU. That would make this book her first. This character is technically not the first post-crisis Cats. That honor goes to Detective 569 but again that is a different universe. I would also look for Catwoman When in Rome 1, also part of the Year One universe with a story focused on Catwoman.
First appearance of The Black Widow as Thor
First Foriegn appearance of Devil Hulk
———-COVERS I DIG!———-
Here's a foreign edition worth looking for.
This anthology series has some gems that touch all the bases; needles, bikinis and robot restraints!
Here's a sick Sterenko cover!
There are a few issues from Tales from the Edge Sterenko fans should be on the hunt for. This one sells pretty well signed.
and if you are a Sterenko or Sienkiewicz fan these should interest you
This cover is stunning.
Others I dig…
Lord Pumpkin appeared earlier but this cover is his best.
Meltdown 1 & the into booklet ( very hard to find with paper two pack binder )
This is an oversized UK anthology, reprint series and they can be quite rare. Issue 1 reprints part 1 of both Akira and Nightbreed
Issue 3 reprints the Cover to Nightbreed 1 but it is the rare poster that is worth buying this for!
There is something truly disturbing about Jason Alexander's painted cover. With Solomon set to get an adaptation this Dark Horse 100 Special Edition is currently a ghost and might be worth grabbing now before it is too late.
See y'all next week!
