Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. I’ve also included a list of Trade Paperbacks and Hard Cover Editions if you’re looking for some extra stories. In fact, there are quite a few exciting trades out this week, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Snow Fall 01Snowfall #1 – A science-fiction (possibly super-hero) story about a man who uses weather as a weapon in a snow-less world from creators Joe Harris and Martin Morazzo. Image has had a slew of success lately with critics and fans, even in titles less-known than Saga or Sex Criminals, and they show no sign of slowing any time soon.

Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #2 – DC has order a 2nd printing for #1, so if you aren’t on this already, go get it this week!

The Twilight Zone #1959 – Dynamite returns to the Twilight Zone in this one-shot throwback to the original television show! With three separate stories in this oversized issue and an all-star cast of creators like John Layman and Twilight Zone alum Mark Rahner, this is one no fan will want to miss.

Power Man and Iron Fist 01Powerman & Iron First #1 – Luke Cage and Danny Rand “return to their roots”, the original Heroes for Hire! Just in time for new readers and those not very familiar with Luke Cage before his Netflix series debuts!

Captain America: White HC (new this week) – Critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite creative team Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale reunite for the fourth installment of Marvel’s Color series (I don’t know if that’s really the name, that’s just what I call it) See also Spiderman: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, and Hulk: Grey.

Fade Out Vol. 3 TP (new this week) – The final volume in Brubaker/Phillips latest hit!
