Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (FEARSCAPE, GODDESS MODE & SPIDER-MAN). 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.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.
FEARSCAPE #3 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Ryan O’Sullivan, Andrea Mutti, Vladimir Popov, Andworld Design
Having escaped the clutches of the Fearscape, Henry Henry tries to… Aha!You’ll use my name, I see, but won’t let me speak! That you would require solicitation copy for the third issue, after the genre-redefining brilliance of the first two, is nothing short of a personal insult. The work speaks for itself. Any tale of my exploits should not be hawked to those asleep at the wheel.
GODDESS MODE #1 – $3.99
Vertigo Comics –Zoe Quinn, Robbi Rodriguez, Rico Renzi
In a near future where humanity’s needs are provided for by a godlike A.I., it’s one young woman’s horrible job to do tech support on it.
