Hot Comics for September 19, 2018
What are the Hot Comics Releasing this Week?
Batman: Damned #1 (of 3)
Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo kicks off DC’s new ‘Black Label’ imprint with Batman: Damned #1. The Joker’s dead and Batman brings in John Constantine to help solve the death. You don’t have to be a Batman fan to get into this biweekly miniseries.
The Edge of Spider-Geddon #3
I’m still not as sold on this series as others are. But this issue debuts the first appearance of Uncle Ben as a superhero. Even if you’re not into the series, this may be worth picking up and holding onto to see if they do anything further with this character.
Junior High School Horrors #1
The new series by Keenspot Entertainment sold out quickly and should be picked up if you can get it at cover price.
Return of Wolverine #1
Surprise! Wolverine’s back alive! And with it comes 25 different covers. Some of the variants may hold value, but if you’re really into one, wait a few weeks to get it at a reduced cost. With Charles Soule at the helm, this should be a solid series regardless of how irritating it is to resurrect another fallen character for a sales bump.
Infinity Wars: Soldier Supreme #1
While these Infinity Wars-mashups are nothing more than a sales gimmick, they’re typically fun reads in the line of the What If…? titles. Gerry Duggan and Adam Kubert are a solid creative team in charge of this title.
Patience Conviction Revenge #1
AfterShock Comics newest series, Patience Conviction Revenge, has a little bit of everything you want as a reader. AfterShock always delivers on originality and quality writing so this should be worth the pick-up.
Batman #55 (Cover B Francesco Mattina)
Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (Dellotto Variant)
Justice League #8 (Jim Lee Pencil Variant Cover)
Could be Cool
The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1
The cover alone may be worth checking out with Spider-Man in his black costume and a shadow of the Venom symbiote in the background.
This’ll likely be a quickly forgotten series within a year. Whenever the series description compares itself to another popular series (Stranger Things), it’s usually because it doesn’t have enough substance to sell issues. But, the premise and the publisher (Image) makes this worth checking out.
