Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (OLYMPIA & MONEY SHOT). 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.
MONEY SHOT #2 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Sarah Beattie, Tim Seeley, Kurt Russell, Crank!, Rebekah Isaacs
The intrepid XXX-plorers are held prisoner by a Warlord on the planet Dry Reef! Can this crew of lovers-not-fighters survive the arena long enough to find their prize-a love guru whose orgasms are powerful enough to split the atom?
ONCE & FUTURE #4 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – Kieron Gillan, Dan Mora, Tamra Bonvillain, Ed Dukeshire
Gran’s monster hunting wasn’t the only thing she kept from Duncan. He’s about to discover more of the family secrets, and the sacrifices one must make to reach the Holy Grail.
THE QUESTION : THE DEATHS OF VIC SAGE #1 – $6.99
DC Comics – Jeff Lemire, Bill Sienkiewicz, Denys Cowan, Chris Sotomayor
For years, Vic Sage has worn the faceless mask of the Question to clean up the streets of Hub City by sheer force of will. He knows right from wrong. He knows black from white. But what happens when he is drawn into a conspiracy that reaches from the heights of Hub City power to the depths of its underground tunnels? What happens when things stop being black-and-white and start getting a little gray? And what happens when, in a secret chamber deep beneath the city, Vic Sage meets his own end…and his new beginning? Eisner-winning writer Jeff Lemire joins forces with the legendary art team of Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz to resurrect Vic Sage, only to destroy him all over again…and again…
OLYMPIA #1 – $3.99
Image Comics – Curt Pires, Tony Pires, Alex Diotto, Dee Cunniffe, Micah Myers, Christian Ward
Elon is a latchkey kid who spends his days alone reading comic books-until his favorite superhero, Olympian, comes crashing off the page and into reality! But as he nurses his wounded and delirious hero back to health, he discovers Olympian isn’t the only thing that came through… something evil followed him.
A comedic yet heartfelt love letter to the comics medium, OLYMPIA is also a meditation on hope and loss, conceived by CURT PIRES (Wyrd) and his father, TONY PIRES, while Tony was undergoing treatment for cancer.
IDW Publishing – David M. Booher, Drew Zucker, Vittorio Astone, Deron Bennett
The blockbuster finale to Canto’s first epic quest is here and… there’s no place like home! Atop the Emerald Tower, Canto faces the Shrouded Man to demand his beloved’s heart.
