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.
Jo S: Much of my list this week is played for laughs - maybe something to do with cheering myself up on a gloomy January Wednesday! Jimmy’s Bastards is multiple kinds of wrong but its non-PC humour is a real tonic. I continue to enjoy the Deadpool Vs Old Man Logan dynamic as this odd couple entirely fail to work together harmoniously. A few of my regular books have reached an end recently and so there’s a Welcome Mat out for a couple of new titles on my pull-list. I'm giving Days Of Hate #1 a try - the striking cover caught my eye and Ales Kot’s name sealed the deal; the blurb doesn't give very much away but hints at a future world in crisis and two people torn apart by circumstance. I'm giving Ice Cream Man #1 an opportunity to impress too - I like the idea of themed done-in-one horror stories and the sickly sweet style reminds me of the pink frosted donut theme running through my favourite horror comic, Plastic. The third newbie for my list is The Further Adventures Of Nick Wilson #1. What happens when you lose the superpowers that defined you and set you on your career path? Washed up and approaching his 30s, Nick needs to find his purpose, in spite of all the baggage he's carrying from his former life; this one looks like it should be a giggle.
