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 along with a full list of titles that will be available from Paradox Comics.
Jo S: A greater than usual level of ruthlessness was required for this week's final rundown: lots of lovely tasty stuff I've enjoyed previously recurs along with a bouquet of new titles so I've had my work cut out cutting out the chaff. Starting in the Marvel camp, the last issue of Daredevil reached a fascinating conclusion, with something of an end-of-arc feel to it in some ways; the ongoing existence and persistence of crime in Hell's Kitchen forcing Matt Murdock's alter ego to continue, somehow, with his work.
I'm doing my homework currently regarding Silver Surfer: Black. Norrin Radd had yet to register on my radar when issue #1 appeared last month, so I've been catching up with Steve Engelhart's '80s series to give myself a bit of background on this melancholy cosmic baldy: he's not quite a robot or a cyborg, but roughly fits my tinman interests! This new series has a deeply psychedelic vibe; I'm not totally sure I'm into the artwork as yet but I'm keeping an open mind.
DC produce a clutch of goodies this week in the form of the complex and beautiful gem that is Pearl, Tom King's Batman (knowing he will be leaving this earlier than expected has made me oddly more dedicated to the book) and a new Wonder Woman series, Come Back To Me, which I took a look at for our Shipping Forecast for this month.
