Welcome to the newest column at Pulp Nation, The Weekly Comet! We want to share good books we’ve been reading and what we’re looking forward to on NCBD!
Before we get started, we’d like to give a big shout out to our friends at Sketchbook Comics and Games for giving us the low down on the good stuff this week.
The Dead Hand
If you haven’t picked up The Dead Hand yet, you are missing out. Thus far, three issues have been released and each one leaves you wanting more. Written by Kyle Higgins with Art by Stephen Mooney and Jordie Bellaire (don’t forget letterer Clayton Cowles), The Dead Hand from Image puts a spin on the classic spy genre.
The Magic Order
In its attempt to take over the world, Netflix (along with Image) has made a move into comics with The Magic Order by writer Mark Millar and artist Olivier Coipel. We live in a world without monsters and other make-believe creatures right? Wrong! We’ve just never seen them thanks to The Magic Order who have protected the world for generations. Problem is, someone has been picking off the Order one by one. What happens when there is nobody to protect us?
As part of Marvel’s “Fresh Start” initiative, Sentry #1 hits bookshelves on June 27, 2018. The Sentry is back from the dead after a recent return to the Marvel Universe in the pages of Doctor Strange. Will the greatest hero we ever forgot overcome his demons? You’ll have to grab the book to find out! Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer) weaves the story with art by Kim Jacinto (Avengers: No Surrender).
Batman: Prelude to the Wedding – Harley Quinn vs. The Joker
Not everyone is excited for the upcoming nuptials of Batman and Catwoman. While the Joker is bent on destroying their special day, Harley Quinn is just as determined to stop him. Check out DC’s One-Shot Batman: Prelude to the Wedding – Harley Quinn vs. The Joker #1 at your LCS on June 27, 2018.
Charlie’s Angels are back! Dynamite takes us back to the 70’s with original Angels Jill, Kelly, and Sabrina! Angels is written by award-winning writer John Layman with art by Joe Eisma. June 27, 2018 at your LCS!
X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue Cancelled
Marvels solicitations for September 2018 reveal that the X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue titles are being canceled. Gold’s final issue will feature a variant cover by Whilce Portacio while the Blue variant will be created by Mike Allred.
