Each year, there is an official “skip week” in the comic world, which means that we are getting only a few releases from major publishers. So, we use the space on our new release rack to highlight some newer releases from the self-published world. This includes Kickstarters, books we’ve bought directly from creators at conventions, or books purchased from publishers that are not distributed by Diamond. This year, we are exceptionally pleased to offer the following books:
Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether vol.1 by Greg Rucka and Rick Burchett
Safari Honeymoon by Jesse Jacobs
Lose #5 by Michael DeForge
Fairy Tales I Just Made Up by Ray Friesen
Cat Dad, King of the Goblins by Britt Wilson
100 Crushes by Elisha Lim
Baby Bjornstrand by Renee French
Pitiful Human Lizard 1 and 2 by Jason Loo
Ball and Chain 1-3 by Cristina Marin
Jenn – Trees #3 – I can’t get enough of this character-driven sci-fi story.
Amy – Amulet vol.6 – We’ve been waiting for this one for 2 years!
Caleb – Winter Soldier Bitter March tpb
Felix – Wicked and Divine #3
Jer – Loki tpb
Sandy – New Avengers #23
Jenn: Grayson #1 – Of all the characters in DC Comics, this is the one which has had the most consistent and continuous character development. I’m excited to see where this newest development will lead.
Amy: Rocket Girl tpb – I’ve always loved Amy Reeder’s art. I read the first issue of this series and was hooked. I’m looking forward to reading the rest!
Bre: Adventure Time Banana Guard Academy #1 – Why? Because it’s Adventure Time, and it’s also written by one of the show’s writers, Kent Osborne.
Caleb: Suicide Squad #1 – It’s Deadshot in a new ongoing series.
Felix: Batman Eternal #14 – I liked the first 8 issues, but then it kind of lagged a bit for me. I’m looking forward to this one to see if it can return to the quality of the beginning.
Jer: Barbarian Lord – It’s barbarians! And the art’s fantastic!
Kevin: Spider-Man 2099 #1 – I enjoyed this character’s storyline in Superior Spider-Man and am looking forward to seeing how it continues.
Top of the Pile are the books the staff are most looking forward to reading this week:
Jenn: Death Sentence HC – This book was at the top of my pile each week it came out. A neat twist on the superhero trope; a virus starts delivering super powers, but with the highest price of all: death.
Amy: Superman #32 – I can’t wait to see John Romita Jr draw Superman!!
Bre: Saga #20 – the only description is “Something terrible happens”….
