This Week’s New Releases and Recommendations

I’m going to assume that we all know that new comics come out today and move directly to another, more important topic. I’m speaking, of course, about zombie variant covers. How many more Marvel comics have to be turned into zombie versions of themselves to serve our sick fascination with the living dead? My guess is somewhere around 400 or so. Or until Arthur Suydam’s arm falls off.

MARVEL ZOMBIES 2 #1MARVEL ZOMBIES 2 #1
Just when I thought I’d never want to read another (non-WALKING DEAD) zombie comic ever again, along comes MARVEL ZOMBIES 2 #1. The titular zombies have wiped the universe clean and are headed back to Earth for dessert. Can humanity survive?! My guess is no. Oddly enough, this is the only Marvel title that does NOT have a zombie variant this week.

SWORD #1THE SWORD #1
The last Luna Bros. series, GIRLS, was generally the first book I would read on new comics day. It was suspenseful, well drawn and never lacking in the crazy department. It’s over (or is it?!), but a new day dawns because now we have THE SWORD. The story is a bit of a mystery even after the first issue, but it revolves around a college girl and a powerful sword. This quote from Image’s official page is great, though.
“If you like Kill Bill, Highlander, or Blade of the Immortal, you’ll love THE SWORD!”, which I read as “If you like things with swords in them, you’ll love THE SWORD!”.

MIGHTY AVENGERS #5MIGHTY AVENGERS #5
Speaking of swords, sometimes in MIGHTY AVENGERS, Ares stabs Iron Man drones in their heads with swords and rides them around like surfboards. So, yeah. Buy MIGHTY AVENGERS because it has that in it.

I feel like the format of this weekly New Releases column implies that I hate indie comics. That’s totally not true. It’s just that McElhatton loooooooves indie comics. But just so you know, I saw him buying a copy of JUSTICE LEAGUE #14 this morning! Take that you dirty SPX-er! Oh yeah… the reviews……
BOOKHUNTER

BOOKHUNTER GN

Take an episode of CSI, roll back the time zone to 1973, and make all the characters library police and you get Jason Shiga’s BOOKHUNTER. Thankfully it’s supposed to funny, because if you can somehow make it through this book without laughing your head off, you are in fact dead. (Any book with cutting edge technology involving a 5.25″ floppy disk is automatically a winner.)
WHITEOUT 2

WHITEOUT VOL. 2: MELT TP – DEFINITIVE EDITION

I just got my hands on the first volume of the new Whiteout “definitive edition” printings and I must say, it looked fantastic. Gorgeous new cover by Steve Lieber, the art has been digitally remastered, the paper stock is a great, thick quality and really helps the look of everything, and the slightly smaller size actually makes it all look even sleeker. Oh yeah, Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber’s story and art are both pretty awesome too.
