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 #1 I hope is going to be Amazing. If the writing sucks, at least we’re getting some damn cool Kaare Andrews covers for this series.
If you’re not on our forums, we got long running topics that usually chat up all these Star Wars news and details way ahead of time.
Star Wars #15 (War of the Bounty Hunters) has just an option cover. It’s also WOBH so anything could happen within.
It’s probably not going to heat up but it’s still a cool 2nd print cover for X-Factor #10 (2nd Ptg Baldeon Variant Gala). As we all know Scarlet Witch won’t be dead for long.
Batman Secret Files Huntress #1 is on my list of books to check out. Love the cover.
Icon & Rocket Season One #1 (of 6) has my interest as well. These one off stories seem to be more interesting coming out of DC than their main character titles for me.
Legends of the Dark Knight #1 (2nd Ptg) is a pretty cool variant for the new Quiz character that made her way into this issue.
Batman Reptilian #2 (of 6). I’ve been digging these covers from Liam Sharp. I still haven’t read the first issue, it’s in the stack so I’m hoping it’s a good read as Ennis rarely disappoints.
Indie and Small Publisher Picks
Star Wars Adventures #7 has been on Pre-Order for what seems like forever. I think I pre-ordered this sucker back in January. It’s finally here and it apparently introduces the new character Crimson Corsair.
Usagi Yojimbo #20 (2nd Ptg) is already sold out at Midtown, still available at TFAW. For you first appearance chasers and completists, this is a must.
Runes #1 is a book I pointed out a few weeks back and in my Indie Spotlights. I love a good Viking story and this one might be good, I hope.
Swamp God #1 (of 6) is a Heavy Metal book I"m looking forward to. The Civil War junkie in me is hoping a great read.
