Hi, 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:
Brubaker and Epting do what they do best…spies.
Marvel Now What #1
stunning tradition of Marvel humor books, we get Marvel Now What. Skottie Young follows in Jim Mahfood’s footsteps with this satirical look at Marvel’s beloved characters. Hooray to Marvel for letting Skottie draw on the inside of a superhero book!
Vertigo Essentials The Sandman #1
Do you like Sandman? Does it make you uncomfortable? Do you think that it’s just a bunch of goth nonsense? Whether you like Sandman or not, Neil Gaiman is still an incredibly famous author and new Sandman is coming. Catch up here and paint your fingernails black…matter of fact, paint everything black.
The cover of this issue looks like a shameless Halloween tie-in. It also looks bonkers. It’s been too long since I’ve caught up with Mark Waid’s Daredevil. What about you?
Samurai Jack #1
Blog favorite, Jim Zub combines with BOOM! Studios to resurrect a character with a strong cult following. Samurai Jack is back and we trust Zub to do him right!
