What Comics To Watch For On Wednesday, 8/31

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.

This week’s offerings:

Skip To The End #1

Nirvana Homage Alert!

Jonny Wells desperately wants to relive his grunge rock royalty past. As bassist of Samsara, he craved the Rock’n’Roll lifestyle that eventually claimed the life of the band’s visionary lead singer and his best friend. Now a VH1 cautionary tale of drug addiction and self-loathing, Wells trades his smack for an old battered guitar, and discovers that returning to his former glory days are only a few chords away. Literally.

Grant Morrison is running things at Heavy Metal Magazine…and that’s a good thing!

Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me #1

The solicitation on this one is pretty great.  I might check it out.

Jim Thompson’s sinewy, brutal, and beloved novel comes to life as a five-part graphic noir! Adapted by writer Devin Faraci (The Fade-In) and illustrated with gut-punchingly vivid art by Vic Malhotra (Murder Book). In THE KILLER INSIDE ME, Thompson went where few have dared, giving us a pitch-black glimpse into the mind of the American serial killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis’s American Psycho, in the novel that will forever be known as the master performance of one of the greatest crime novelists of all time. Lou Ford is the deputy sheriff of a small town in Texas. The worst thing most people can say against him is that he’s a little slow and a little boring. But, then, most people don’t know about the sickness-the sickness that almost got Lou put away when he was younger. The sickness that is about to surface again. Foreword by Stephen King! Variant covers by Robert Hack (Mean Streets). ‘Probably the most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally-warped mind I have ever encountered.’ -Stanley Kubrick Part of IDW’s five-week Creator Visions event! Five creator-driven books, launched in five straight weeks!
