New comics are due to hit the shelves on Wednesday so here’s a look ahead at some of the books we’ll be picking up this week. To see what’s available at Paradox this week, click here.
Kenny J: I picked up the first issue of Siege, the Secret Wars tie-in starring Abigail Brand and a host of fan favourite analogues, when I found out the art was provided by Filipe Andrade and James Stokoe (even if it’s a single double-page spread). Where I thought we’d have a straight war story based on The Shield, Kieron Gillen has set up a mystery with the tease of a catastrophic event that may or may not be tied to future events in the main event book. Hopefully this next instalment will start shedding some more light on the part of Battleworld built in the last. Another introductory book that was very much about world-building was 8House: Arclight. Again, there might not have been much in the way of firm incident but the beautiful art by Marian Churchland combined with Brandon Graham’s words and back-up stories has created an intriguing atmosphere that I want to experience more of. Image has the rest of my shopping list tied up this week as well with Deadly Class #15, Sex #23, and The Wicked + The Divine #13 barrelling along at such at rate I can scarcely believe we've had so many months of high quality titles.
