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:
Burning Fields #1
…a new horror tale unlike any other. A geopolitical drama with monster mythos, Burning Fields is a story for both fans of Zero Dark Thirty and The Thing, as the writers of Roche Limit and Enormous explore the evil that lurks when greed drives one to drill too deep into the unknown. WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Dana Atkinson, a dishonorably discharged army investigator, is pulled back to the Middle East when a group of American oil technicians disappear under bizarre circumstances. With the help of an Iraqi investigator, what Dana discovers is unimaginable: a series of unusual incidents at the drill site lead her and her unlikely ally to discover a mythic evil that has been released, one that threatens both the lives of the entire region and the fragile peace that exists.
Transformers Punishment #1 (One-Shot)
Optimus Prime is uncovering secrets and the promise of Dinobots looms on the cover. This is my kind of one-shot…
Rocket Raccoon #7
Raccoons like snow, right? I dunno, but Rocket is tying up loose ends on WINTER PLANET. Skottie Young is turning out to be a talented writer!
Ivar Timewalker #1
Archer & Armstrong is the best thing in The Valiant Comics Universe, a universe with great aspirations and occasionally adequate follow through. Ivar Timewalker is said to come out from the pages of Archer & Armstrong and being about time travel, has a good shot to be worth something.
Marvel comics is relaunching Powers again, this time to go along with the TV show. Say it with me now, “Trust Bendis, truuuuuusssstt Bendis!”
Crazy comics filled with visceral action and Crow deities.
Groo Friends And Foes #1
Groo comics are funny comics and this one centers around the pirate captain that is so dumb that he sinks all of the ships! Hilarity ensues.
Batman Eternal #42
The debut of Bluebird in DC Comics! OMG! LOL!
Tooth & Claw #3 or The Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw #3
Yeah…the last issue of Tooth & Claw hung an epic amount of dong… I mean, a whole lot of male penis… But this issue features Goodfoot The Sly, the Fox cowgirl that rides a giant grasshopper. I love how wildly imaginative this fantasy story is!
