Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics. If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
A.D. After Death #3 – $5.99
Image Comics – Scott Snyder, Jeff Lemire
Jonah Cooke is on the run from a future he helped create, a future where death has been genetically cured. Yet he’s finally come to accept that no matter how long he lives, he’ll never escape his past. And now he’s done the one thing that may put everyone left alive in jeopardy. The shocking conclusion of the sci-fi epic by two of comics’ most acclaimed creators is here.
Eternal Warrior Awakening #1 – $3.99
Valiant Entertainment – Robert Venditti, Renato Guedes, Ulises Arreola, Clayton Crain
It is a time before civilization… On the brink of carving out victory in the most violent battle of his life, Gilad Anni-Padda suffers a devastating injury. He awakens weeks later in a strange land, nursed back to health but with no memory of his past. A tribe has shown him compassion in an age of cruelty, and he will return their gift in kind. Now the real violence will begin… New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps.) and acclaimed artist Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Reborn) lead a celebration of the Eternal Warrior’s 25th anniversary here with the second of four standalone specials honoring the most famous Valiant tales ever told!
Grass Kings #3 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – Matt Kindt, Tyler Jenkins
Tensions rise when Humbert sends his brother into the Grass Kingdom to search for Maria. Robert and Bruce will have to treat each move with caution if they want to avoid bloodshed.
Rock Candy Mountain #2 – $3.99
Image Comics – Kyle Starks, Chris Schweizer
Mysterious, tough-as-hell hobo Jackson continues his search for the mythical Rock Candy Mountain in the most obvious place: an underground fight club. Yup, that’s right, this issue includes a veritable crap-ton of hobo fights. Did you think we were going to lay off the hobo fights? Nope! EVEN MORE HOBO FIGHTS!
Also: the Literal Devil, a guy named Hundred Cat, and poor Pomona Slim continuing to be drug in the wake of an adventure he is woefully unprepared for. Did you hear? HOBO FIGHT CLUB.
Secret Warriors #1 – $3.99
Marvel Comics – Matthew Rosenberg, Javi Garron, Israel Silva, Tradd Moore
Captain America has been revealed to be an agent of Hydra – and he’s coming after Inhumans!
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. QUAKE, wants no part of Hydra, so she goes underground, teaming up with MS. MARVEL, MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR, KARNAK and INFERNO to set things right – for the Inhumans, but also for the entire country!
Penned by rising star Matthew Rosenberg (Kingpin, Rocket Raccoon, 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank) and drawn by the immensely talented Javier Garrón (Death of X, Inhumans vs X-Men), SECRET WARRIORS is one part coming-of-age story, one part spy-thriller, all action and all heart. Don’t miss the next (and final?) generation of Inhumans as they take the Marvel Universe by storm!
Extra Pulls: All-Star Batman #10, Detective Comics #956, Black Cloud #2, Kingpin #4, Amazing Spider-Man #27
