Wednesday is nearly here again, and this one follows Valentines day so could leave you low on cash but that doesn’t mean there’s any less comics hitting the shelves this week. So here’s a look at my recommendations for this weeks top releases.
Kill or be Killed #6
Official Synopsis: BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS’ runaway bestseller just keeps going! Now that we’ve seen the origin of our killer, it’s only a matter of time before the NYPD realizes they have a vigilante on their streets.
The first issue of this new arc releases the same day as the first KILL OR BE KILLED trade, and is a perfect jumping on point for readers who’ve missed out so far. And every issue has all the back page extras that BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS fans have come to expect.
Why it’s a Pick: This title has been a brilliant example of the exceptional skill Brubaker has at building characters, he has managed to make us care about the protagonist and his plight! How will he react tot he federal hunt for him, and how will his best friend react- these are the real questions that intrigue me and that’s thanks to the writing talent. If you haven’t read this yet- no seems like the best time to get on board.
Sex Criminals #16
Official Synopsis: SEX CRIMINALS is BACK.
Full sex! Deep crime! Big floppy 16th issue!
Why it’s a Pick: Ohhh Yes, it’s back! This title has been a brilliant ride, and this issue has been a long time coming (Pun wasn’t intended until I read it back lol) But this book has been ominously missing and I was beginning to wonder if it had been cancelled, but seeing it back has brightened my reading week- Fraction and Zdarksy have been great at creating their twisted and sexual world and Valentines seems like the best week to relaunch with a new tale. If you like your tales full of adult content, laughs and downright good character work this is the one for you. If you don’t believe me, here’s an article to inform you why! This needs to be o your reading list- no questions asked.
God Country #2
Official Synopsis: As Emmett Quinlan attempts to rebuild his family and his home after the devastating tornado that broke them, something otherworldly screams through the sky under a banner of WAR. The GODS have come to Texas– and they do not intend to leave it empty handed…
Why it’s a Pick: The first issue of this book was brilliant- the artwork was great and the story was enticing so there is no reason not to recommend the second issue right here and now. This should be a great new titles that gains steam as it moves forward and you want to be getting on board sooner rather than later.
Book of the week
Im super excited to see this title back- so it should come as no surprise that this is my pick of the books this week. If you’ve never read Sex Criminals before- why not? And get on it now folks.
