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:
Mama Tits Saves The World (One-Shot)
Why would you ask why this should be good? Are you racisss? But really, this title might be up for a nomination for a “best title of the year” Eisner.
Can one Pacific Northwest drag queen prevail in the fight against hate? Writer Charles ‘Zan’ Christensen and artist Terry Blas-along with guest artists Sonya Saturday, Diego Gomez, and Justin Hall-take Seattle’s most famous activist queen to a new level in the new comic book Mama Tits Saves the World!
Lake Of Fire #1
Aliens visit amidst the crusades.
Kingsway West #1
Shanghai Noon…kinda’! Weird west mixes magic, martial arts, and monsters. Sounds good to me. Mirko Colak‘s art also looks terrific.
Six Pack & Dog Welder Hard Travellin Heroez #1
The section 8 Heroez return! Thank God, because I need some dogs welded.
In the tradition of the original Hard-Traveling Heroes, Green Lantern and Green Arrow, Sixpack and Dogwelder are ready to bring their allegedly socially aware brand of justice to the lands beyond Gotham City! After the events of ALL-STAR SECTION EIGHT, Sixpack is fighting to keep what’s left of his team together. Dogwelder has gone in search of his past, while newlyweds Bueno Excellente and Guts are dealing with some fidelity issues. Could Section Eight be done for good? But everything changes when a mysterious trenchcoat-wearing chain smoker offers our favorite dog enthusiast some clues about his true nature. Is Dogwelder everything he seems? Or is he meant for something greater?
Godzilla Rage Across Time #1
Move over dinosaurs… monsters used to rule the planet! Travel to different time periods to examine the origin of myths that fueled nightmares! In this first installment, Godzilla brings his terror to feudal Japan! From creators who brought you the smash-hit Godzilla in Hell! Every issue will see a new creative team of monstrous talent!
