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: This year's long January saw a few longstanding series coming to a close and so there's a bit of roominess in my list available for some new titles. It's a little odd perhaps that Marvel's Love Romances #1 pops up six days after all the Valentine's nonsense last week - I can't help but wonder if there was a bit of a miscalculation there - but tales of robot lurrrrve are always welcome with this droidophile, no matter the date.
Sharkey Bounty Hunter #1 probably wouldn't have made the cut normally, but it's half term here and things are a little quieter currently, plus lovely technical sample art from Simone Bianchi really looks set to light up the most recent Millarworld offering, including… is that… Purple Alien Lemmy?
A third issue #1 in the shape of Aftershock's new outset Stronghold promises hidden destiny adventures for Claire, a delivery truck driver and member of a super secret ancient society whose job it is to protect the Earth from the very alien intelligence she seems to be forming a relationship with - oops: the course of love never did run smooth. And speaking of which… the second non-King written Batman appears this week and, more importantly for me, my favourite of the moment, Catwoman - I'm fidgety waiting for each new instalment of Jones’ masterpiece.
