Each and every week, I, “All-New,” and “Afterlife with” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of January 8, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
After a slow couple of weeks, comic book publishers everywhere have chosen this week to make up for lost time. There is a plethora of amazing new series and great new issues to ongoing titles out this week that there is sure to be something that every reader will be looking forward to. And if you’re living in a part of the country going through a deep freeze, there’s nothing better on a cold day than curling up with some nice new comics. So get out there, brave the low temperatures, and don’t miss out on a single book on this week’s GoD List!
I was sad when the previous run of Peter David‘s X-Factor ended last month after a solid 8-year run, but I am happy now that Marvel has announced that they will be bringing the series back in 2014 under the new name of All-New X-Factor, and that David will return as the writer of the series. Joining him on art will be Carmine Di Giandomenico.
The new series will jump off of events set up at the end of the last run, with Polaris working with Serval Industries to lead a corporate-funded superhero team. Joining her will be Polaris’s half-brother and former X-Factor member Quicksilver, as well as Gambit, coming off his own recently canceled series. We’ll also see some other members on the team, although those haven’t been announced yet.
