Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Several new series as well as a few final issues, plus a healthy stack of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…
New This Week:
American Vampire Anthology #2 – I’m glad to see a new release from American Vampire, hopefully this means a new series coming soon! If you’re unfamiliar with this franchise, it’s a new take on the next generation of vampires, set mostly in the early 20th century.
Darth Vader #25 – Final issue! This has been a great series, so I for one will be sad to see it go. Kieron Gillen writes emotion very well, and he highlighted the emotional side to Vader perfectly. But don’t worry, a new “confidential” Star Wars series is on its way soon…stay tuned.
Howard the Duck #11 – Another final issue! Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quesada’s unexpected and fan-favorite hit comes to a close.
The Clone Conspiracy #1 – The Jackal is back in this new Spider-Man series!
Reborn #1 – Mark Millar and Greg Capullo team up in this all new sci-fi adventure series! Turns out the afterlife isn’t as simple as Heaven or Hell; it’s a battlefield with all your old friends and foes.
Shutter #23 – The final act begins! It’s only been four months but it feels like longer, possibly due to the HUGE cliffhanger of last issue.
The Lost Boys #1 – This has to be one of the least expected sequels of the year! Fans of the cult classic are treated to a follow up almost 30 years in the making.
Other issues to look forward to:
- Action Comics #965 – New story arc!
- Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: The Salmon of Doubt #1
- Great Lakes Avengers#1
- James Bond: Hammerhead #1
- Mosaic #1
- The October Faction: Deadly Season #1 – Just in time for Halloween!
- Solo #1
