Wednesday is nearly here again, and as its the holidays that means I actually get to read new releases as soon as the hit (Digitally). So with the excitement of on the spot reading in mind here’s what I recommend you buy this week.
B.P.R.D: The Devil You Know #1
Official Synopsis: Before they were vanquished by the BPRD, Lovecraftian monsters created a Hell on Earth. Now Liz Sherman leads a crew through monster-infested ruins on the most important rescue mission of her life. As society tries to rebuild, strange cults vie for influence, and a demon emerges to lead the way . . .
Why it’s a Pick: BPRD always delivers some great tales, and when you mix it with a Lovecraftian tale that features Lovecraftian cults (Please give us a Chthulu) there is no way this can the a sure fire great read. And lets be honest does anyone remember the last time that Jeff Lemire gave us a poor book? No me either so everything here is pointing towards a classic BPRD tale.
Official Synopsis: As Hazel and her family venture into the Badlands, their newest companion is left to hold down the fort on her own.
Why it’s a Pick: Saga is always a damn great read, no ifs and no buts this is always one of the best books of the month! Brian K.Vaughan and Fiona Staples have really crafted an insanely beautiful and very hard to leave behind world full of amazing characters and watching how this story unfolds has to be done!
Joe Golem- The Occult Detective: The Outer Dark #3
Official Synopsis: Joe discovers that the supernatural voices driving men insane may have roots in another dimension, and Church takes matters into his own hands when Lori starts to ask too many questions.
Why it’s a Pick: Joe Golem has been a joy to read- with it feeling like a detective story from the late 70’s television with a huge amount of mythology and creepiness thrown in for the joy of it. Mignola has been on his regular form here crafting a wonderfully paced tale that engages the reader while leaving you wondering what the outcome will truly be- and getting you really hooked along the way. I’m excited to see how this builds towards the end now!
Book of the week.
The Lovecraftian link is too much for me to avoid this one- it has me on tender hooks to see how this develops and what Lemire does with this title.
