Each and every week, I, “What did you get at NYCC?” Henchman21, and “Con Crud!” 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 October 16, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
I don’t know about you, but I’m still a little warn out from New York Comic-Con, so it’s a bit of a short list this week, with just a couple of new hardcovers for you. But what we lack in quantity, we make up for in quality with two can’t-miss books and one title that the Empress has been waiting for since the summer. And if you’re looking for the hot new single issues out this week, there’s a new issue of Hawkeye, Invincible, Morning Glories, The Sixth Gun, and Batman/Superman to keep you entertained. Now if you don’t mind, we’re going to go take a nap while you enjoy this week’s GoD List!
It was one of the worst-kept secrets in science fiction cinema, but yes, Khan is, in fact, the villain in this summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness. Khan Noonien Singh, also known as “KHAAAAAAN!!!,” is one of the most popular characters ever introduced into the Star Trek universe, and thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch’s awesome portrayal of the character, interest in the genetically enhanced super villain has greatly increased.
Now, IDW Comics plans to reveal the origins of Khan in an upcoming 6-issue miniseries called Star Trek: Khan, from the publisher’s ongoing Star Trek series team of writer Mike Johnson and artist Claudia Balboni. Star Trek Into Darkness screenwriter Roberto Orci will oversee the project.
