Welcome to our weekly post where we tell you “What Comics to Watch For On Wednesday.” We are doing our best to recommend a few titles worth your time this week. It is good to note that we rarely suggest mid-run titles, because we try to provide good jumping on points or oddities that must be seen to believe. Today is YUGE!!!
This week’s offerings:
The solicitation suggests that we will see Bullseye, the world’s most deadly and cruel assassin kicking back and having a few laughs.
SHOOT FIRST! Daredevil, Elektra, Punisher? You name ’em, Bullseye beat ’em. But that was just business? This? This is pleasure. What does the world’s greatest assassin do for fun? Find out what Bullseye gets involved in for laughs in this deadly first issue, way down in South America! Rated T+
Paper Girls #11
Brian K. Vaughan’s acclaimed series comes back with a bang. Cliff Chiang for all and to all a good night!
Planet of The Apes Green Lantern #1
Caesar has the willpower to lead his people, but is that enough to light up the ring of one of the Green Lantern Corps? Betting on the cover, probably. BOOM! Studios is bringing fire with these kooky crossovers.
Monsters Unleashed #2
Still suggesting this. Fin Fang Foom wears pants. No more questions.
The Dregs #1
Black Mask is always up for something interesting. This comic looks like my kind of “interesting” and I highlight it here in hopes that it might be your kind of “interesting,” too.
A gentrified city. Its homeless population restricted to six square blocks called The Dregs. When people start disappearing, a drug-addled homeless man obsessed with detective fiction becomes addicted to solving the mystery. Equal parts Raymond Chandler and Don Quixote set in a thriving metropolis that literally cannibalizes the homeless, The Dregs is the first homeless meta noir ever made.
Invincible is winding down to an end. Come with us, won’t you?
Planetoid: Praxis #1
Here it is!!! The follow-up to a blog-favorite series, Planetoid. 5 years ago, Ken Garing came along and made a comic that surprised me, delighted me, and changed how I viewed self-publishing. I was so impressed that I sought him out for an interview for THIS website. I am hoping that this sequel is as good, if not better than the original which would be tough to do.
Darth Maul #1
Darth Maul is everyone’s favorite Sith and he has barely done anything. Now, in the hands of Cullen Bunn and Luke Ross, we will see what he does. The solicitation promises that “rage will be unleashed.”
