Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (THESE SAVAGE SHORES, WASTED SPACE, & OBERON). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.
THESE SAVAGE SHORES #3 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Ram V., Sumit Kumar, Vitorio Astone, Aditya Bidikar
The stench of war clings to the air as Hyder Ali of Mysore comes calling for the levy. Good men and demons alike are set to march, even as lovers part with the promise of a safe return. But in these troubling times the promise of a hunt brings the devil himself to this faraway coast. Along These Savage Shores where blood begets blood and dawn-light shimmers over a land soaked in betrayal.
WASTED SPACE #6 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie, Jim Campbell
Now officially an ongoing! The whole fam damily is back! Billy visits a crooked politician. Dust and Fury make sweet bot-love in unsanitary locations. A ghost haunts Molly’s visions of Rex. And Legion pets a dog. The galaxy is still totally borked, but maybe together they can un-bork it… oh, probably not.
OBERON #1 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Ryan Parrott, Milos Slavkovic, Charles Pritchett
Betrayed by his people and exiled to Earth, Lord Oberon, the former king of the fairies, seeks out an innocent prophesied child in order to manipulate her into becoming his ultimate weapon so that he can reclaim his rightful throne.
From writer Ryan Parrot (VOLITION) and artist Milos Slavkovic (T/K), Oberon is a new supernatural adventure proving once and for all that fairies should never be trusted.
RED SONJA #1 – $3.99
Dynamite – Mark Russell, Mirko Colak, Christian Ward
No man knows the place of her birth, nor where she learned to wield a sword to shame many a male. They know only that she is called The She-Devil of The Hyrkanian Steppes. That, and RED SONJA. MARK RUSSELL (The Flintstones) and MIRKO COLAK (Conan) bring a savage tale of metal and blood. A world conqueror possesses a massive army and a fatal prophecy. A bastard sorceress craves revenge. And a fearsome red-haired warrior is made wartime ruler of a homeland set for decimation.
DIE #3 – $3.99
Image Comics – Kieron Gillen, Stephanie Hans, Clayton Cowles, Jen Bartel
“FANTASY HEARTBREAKER,” Part Three: One of the saddest comics in Kieron’s career. One of Stephanie’s prettiest. Clayton’s lettering, of course, remains impeccable.
