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.
Andy H: There are a couple of Image issue #1s this week, including The Dying And The Dead, which is going to be worthy of a look as it's a Jonathan Hickman creator-owned book. But that's not where I'm going. Oh no, it's a second issue that I'm eagerly awaiting. They're Not Like Us #1 really caught me off guard. The initial blurb didn't get it right so when I read it I wasn't expecting much and got a fantastic read for my money. Great ending to the first issue and I'm looking forward to where it will go from there. Another second issue but this time from a miniseries, Graveyard Shift #2. Written by Jay Faerber with some really nice art by Fran Bueno, this is the story of a cop who's girlfriend becomes a vampire and their search for a cure. A strong debut has got me coming back for more. Thor remains an enjoyable read; the action continues unabated as the new Thor learns to cope with the changes in her life. We still don't know who she (plenty of guesses!) but so far I'm enjoying the mystery. Avengers & X-Men: AXIS may not have set the comic world alight but the fallout could be interesting: Uncanny Avengers returns, with a #1, and makes it back on my pull-list for the time being.
