I’m really, really trying to not go into a “Shining” reference here, so please thank me for that. Since our new online store has gone live (hint, hint its at the right or click here), we’re going to do a weekly feature of all the great stuff coming out this week in terms of comics.
The couple of things that I’m looking forward to this week is “Pixu: The Mark of Evil“. Handled by Indie darlings Becky Cloonan, Vasilis Lolos, and “Casanova” and “Umbrella Academy” twin brother artists Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon.
From DC Comics the obvious highlight of the week is “Wednesday Comics”. The first issue of this newspaper-sized comic that will run every week for the next 12 weeks is just bound to be gorgeous. With stories by “100 Bullets” team Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso doing Batman, and Neil Gaiman and Mike Allred doing a “Metamorpho” story.
Other highlights includes the first issue of “Dark X-Men #1”, the second printing of “Chew #1” which people are throwing up their hands in expressing how awesome it is. I haven’t read it, but its important to try new things. Also is yet another Blackest Night prequel in “Green Lantern”.
However, what I am really pumped to check out is Jeff Lemire’s “The Nobody” which is an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic “The Invisible Man.” A number of people have expressed to me to check out his Indie classic “The Essex County”.
As always, for a complete listing of the new comics out today, head to our brandy new, fresh and user friendly online store at ForbiddenPlanetUSA.com.
