Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. A few new series coming out, as well as a healthy stack of new TPBs and HCs to check out. And so, without further ado, let’s dive in…
New This Week:
Babyteeth #1 – Another all-star team for a new Aftershock series! Donny Cates’ Star Trek Deviations one-shot was a hit and his new Redneck series at Image is proving he knows how to tell a gripping story. Garry Brown’s art on Catwoman quickly became a fan-favorite and of course his work on The Massive was impressive. This should be a pretty great series!
The Divided States of Hysteria #1 – Never one to shy from controversy, Chaykin presents a dark look at a politically turmoil-ridden U.S. This is bound to ring a few bells close to home for many.
A Game of Thrones: A Clash of Kings #1 – Dynamite’s official adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novels continues with this second series!
Nothing Lasts Forever TPB – The next round of reflective memoirs from Sina Grace (see also Self Obsessed).
Star Wars: Darth Vader #1 – Charles Soule writes this new series for the galaxy’s greatest villain, along with Giuseppe Camuncoli on art. Based on the description, it appears this takes place between Episodes III and IV, focusing on Vader’s studies with Sidious!
Other issues to look forward to:
Daredevil #21 – New arc!
Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9 – The final issue.
DC / Looney Tunes: 100 Page Spectacular #1 – This is a reprint of a series from 2000, also look out for the other DC/LT issues being released throughout the month.
DC Comics Bombshells #28
Paper Girls #15 – Arc finale! I really cannot wait to see where (and when) this series goes.
Reborn #6 – Mini-series conclusion!
Wonder Woman: Steve Trevor #1 – Will Diana and Steve always be there for each other, or will The Fates intervene?
