Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (FLAVOR, A WALK THROUGH HELL & GOOSEBUMPS). 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 WALK THROUGH HELL #1 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Garth Ennis, Goran Sudzuka, Ive Svorcina, Rob Steen, Andy Clarke
So these two FBI agents walk into a warehouse…
Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it. She’s pushing 40, a borderline burnout, the ghastly memories of her last investigation still clinging like shadows. McGregor is younger, more dedicated, hanging onto some measure of idealism whatever the world might throw at him.
When two fellow agents go missing inside a Long Beach warehouse, Shaw and McGregor are sent to investigate. But what they find waiting is far from routine, as the local police have already discovered to their cost. Before the night is out, our heroes will encounter terror beyond their most appalling nightmares-in a place where the night may never end at all.
DEATHBED #4 – $3.99
Vertigo Comics – Joshua Williamson, Riley Rossmo, Ivan Plascencia, Deron Bennett
Ever get the feeling you’ve forgotten something? You know, it’s that nagging itch in the back of your head that says you left the oven on and your house is on fire. Did you forget that your name is Antonio Luna? Have you found yourself the target of an intricate web of life-threatening assassination attempts for reasons that continue to elude you? Maybe you’re having trouble remembering the face of that ninja you killed last week in self-defense? Or quite possibly, is your name Val Richards and you have no clue why you agreed to accompany a dying lunatic on his suicidal mission to have the most memorable death of all time? If any of these sound, like you or someone you love, then you need the exotic jellyfish plant of the Underwater City of Womba! Its toxins will make you relive all your memories. Even the horrible ones you wanted to forget…
