Welcome to this weeks spec. This is where we pick the winners each week we (or shall I say myself) think will be spec worthy, a great read or just cool looking art on the cover.
Amazing Fantasy #2 (of 5) has just amazing cover art. Even if you don’t read these, it’s hard to resist from buying due to the covers alone.
Everybody loves Darkhawk right? Darkhawk #1 (of 5) hits stands and as I don’t anticipate any heat on this one (but you never know), I’m hoping for an entertaining read.
It’s War of the Bounty Hunters and Ochi shows up in Star Wars Darth Vader #15 (War of the Bounty Hunters). Doesn’t get any better than this.
And Vader makes an appearance in Star Wars Doctor Aphra #13 (War of the Bounty Hunters).
Winter Guard #1 (of 4) is a new mini-series I’m looking forward to.
Not a whole lot on the DC radar this week.
Superman Son of Kal-El #2 (Cover A - John Timms) has a really cool cover and I’ve been looking forward to reading this title. I’m still waiting for my first issue to arrive on a pre-order. Here’s to hoping Tom Taylor makes Superman… err, his son an entertaining read.
Indie and Small Publisher Picks
Echolands #1 (Cover A - Williams III) is a new Image title I’m hoping for a good read. I got an advanced review copy but have yet to read it. Might have to get on that before Wednesday comes.
If you’re into Spawn, the new ongoing title King Spawn #1 hits stands this week. Retailers went crazy getting qualified for the signed variant so there’s going to be a shit ton of these out there. Maybe in 30 years we’ll see this one finally rise in value after I’m sure a lot will make their way to the bargain bins.
Lots of covers, stick to the one you like best and leave it at that I say.
Beyond the Farthest Star #1 (Cover A - Ranaldi) that’s going to be a hit or miss. I love a good sci-fi so I’m hoping this is a decent read at minimum.
Hit new title from Aftershock We Live gets a 2nd printing of We Live #4. Might of been under ordered/overlooked by a lot of shops so for you completists, might be a toughie to find out in the wild if you didn’t pre-order a copy.
