Each and every week, I, “Goddamned!” Henchman 21 and “Sandman!” 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 November 11, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Kind of a small list this week, but what we do have is pure gold. Yes, we only have a few books this time around, but they are both well worth your money, and sometimes it’s nice to have a smaller list. Maybe it’s a good week to go back and find something you may have missed. There is one thing you shouldn’t miss though, and that’s The GoD List!
Tomorrow marks the release of Star Wars #1, the launch of a new comic book series from Marvel Comics written by Jason Aaron with art by John Cassaday, so the publisher has released preview pages from the debut issue.
This new Star Wars series, which will be considered “canon,” is a continuing adventure of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader in a story that picks up soon after the events of the original 1977 film, Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope.
Check out the preview pages here below, along with a few images from Cassaday’s sketchbook for the issue. You can pre-order the print version of the 48-page Star Wars #1 (2015) through Amazon and TFAW, or head out to your local comic shop tomorrow to pick up a copy.
When it was announced that Marvel would be taking over the publication of the Star Wars comic books, you had to assume they were going to put some of their top talents on the book. And if you didn’t assume that, you assumed wrong, because Marvel has announced their plans for the first set of Star Wars books, and it includes some of their top writers and artists.
Starting in January 2015, Marvel will launch three new comic books, all taking place just after the end of Star Wars: A New Hope. The line of comics starts in January with Star Wars by writer Jason Aaron (Thor, Original Sin) with art by John Cassaday (Uncanny Avengers). This series will follow all of the main characters in an all-new series of adventures set just after the Battle of Yavin.
Check out the covers for the first three issues below and let us know if you’re excited for this new era of Star Wars comics.
Having watched and reviewed several motion comics, I am never surprised by the mixed reviews that fans give them. Some folks hate them outright while others are at least appreciative of some great storylines seeing a new medium. I’m sure Wolverine Weapon X: Tomorrow Dies Today will be no different. At least this time there is time travel involved. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that the new X-Men movie is coming out this month, right?
Well, this story is all about the Deathloks. Their primary mission is to travel through time and kill superheroes in the past before they become a problem in the future. This includes slaying children outright and even murdering parents who are destined to have superhero children. Being cyborgs (that’s a mix of robot and human, in case you didn’t know), they are programmed to kill and follow their orders without fail, using their enhanced abilities to do so. I won’t bury you in details but suffice to say that they are making great headway on their list when the movie starts in.
If you’ve ever lived in the Deep South, you know it’s like a world unto itself. Normal rules don’t seem to apply and after a while, even the most absurd conditions can become just a regular part of everyday existence. Hardly ever has it been captured authentically. Well, Southern Bastards #2 does just that…and it does it in spades. Small town America is displayed on paper for the whole world to see. If you haven’t lived in the South then you may be in for quite a shock.
