It’s ALWAYS a great week of comics when MISTER MIRACLE is out! And we’re excited to see Sam Wilson without the Cap shield in FALCON #1. GOTHAM CITY GARAGE #1 plays into the DC Bombshell universe; FAMILY TRADE #1 is a new Image ongoing from Justin Jordan, and his LUTHER STRODE COMP SERIES HC is also out; WILDSTORM MICHAEL CRAY #1 spins out of the Warren Ellis Wildstorm series; RUNAWAYS #2 reminds us so much of the original series. Then there are these always excellent books: HARROW COUNTY #26, GRASS KINGS #8, REDLANDS, #3, MECH CADET YU #3, MS MARVEL #23. And local creator (and all-around pizza-lovin’ nice guy) Dave Scheidt’s new all-ages comic WRAPPED UP #1 debuts this week.
It’s the first list of New Comics for October 2017, and already things are out of control! Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy meet Betty and Veronica! Frank Castle is back in The ‘Nam. Batman has gone too far, so The Joker must save Gotham City. Ghost Rider, Damion Hellstrom and Blade are the new Spirits of Vengeance. The Tick is back! October, you’re keen!
This is it, dear reader, the future of the comics industry rests on MARVEL LEGACY #1, out this week. They’re saying it’s a BIG deal, and we hope they’re right. There are also the final 2 GENERATIONS comics this week, CAPTAINS AMERICA and SPIDER-MANS. Dal thinks a beloved charter is gonna bite it in SAGA #47. Find out if he’s right. BATMAN THE MURDER MACHINE #1 continues the fancy foil-covered Metal tie-ins, and ACTION COMICS #988 continues the fancy lenticular cover trend. ARYA #1 is a shining showcase of new, strong female talent and the super-fun HI-FI FIGHT CLUB #2 is, well, super-fun. And now you can read DUCKTALES #1 with the voices of David Tennant, Kate Micucci, Ben Schwartz and Danny Pudi in your head!
