Hot Comics for December 12, 2018
What are the Hot Comics Releasing this Week?
The Batman Who Laughs #1
I’m really excited about this. I loved this character in DK Metal and now he gets his own series. Snyder and Jock are back as the creative team behind this issue where they belong.
Batman Damned #2
Will we see more Bat-Cock? No. Expect the market for this issue to be flooded and kill the price. The cover’s pretty sweet though.
Spider-Gwen Ghost Spider #3
This will be a hot issue with the first appearance of Gwen Goblin. This won’t have much short term value, but it’s worth picking up and stashing if you’re not reading it already.
Fantastic Four Wedding Special #1
The Thing and Alicia Masters are getting married and it’s receiving the expected amount of attention as these weddings do. Will they actually get married, or will they follow the trend of over-hyped superhero weddings this year?
The quarter-century issue will be double-sized with the potential of a new character.
Miles Morales Spider-Man #1
It’s no surprise this series kicks off right before the Spider-Verse movie is released. This is a definite must have, though I’m always skeptical of series that are released alongside movies because they tend to hold back their best stories because they know they’ll sell issues regardless.
Team M.O.B.I.L.E. #1
Another sold out book this week is Team M.O.B.I.L.E. #1 by Antarctic Press.
Hawkman’s origin will be revealed. This’ll be a must-read for any Hawman fans.
Star Wars Age Of The Republic – Darth Maul #1
We’ll see how good this issue is, but it should have some movement for a popular character.
The Defenders The Silver Surfer #1
Silver Surfer has taken a back seat for awhile now. Maybe this will help kickoff some attention for him. This will be released alongside the Defenders: Dr. Strange #1.
New Talent Showcase 2018 #1
I really dig these issues as I’m always on the lookout for new great creators.
Wonder Woman #60 (Frison Variant)
Justice League Dark #6 (Crain Variant)
Jim Henson Beneath Dark Crystal #5 (of 12) Preorder Petersen
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Macroseries #4 Raphael (Cover A – Petersen)
Yup, Petersen gets two excellent covers again. The guy’s amazing.
Titans #31 (Tan Variant)
Amazing Spider-Man #11 (Dellotto Fantastic Four Villains Variant)
Flash #60 (Chew Variant)
Could be Cool
Typhoid Fever Iron Fist #1
This issue is painful for me as I loved the second season of Iron Fist, with Typhoid Mary. I doubt this is anything great, but it’s a must read for me.
Goddess Mode #1
There’s a great creative team behind this issue (writer Zoe Quinn and artist Robbi Rodriguez). I like the premise, but I’ve said this about a lot of DC/Vertigo series’ lately which have ended up just being okay.
The first issue was hot and the second is already sold out. I have doubted the second issue will maintain much value, but the first issue was worth the pickup.
Mega Ghost #1
Anything by Albatross Funnybooks is worth a shot for me.
Spawn Kills Everyone Too! #1
I don’t know anyone who’s read a Spawn book in the past decade+, but this looks like a solid read if you’re a fan.
