New Comic Book Day, 1/10

New week, new comics!!
This week I actually struggled with which comics NOT to pick up. Probably going to expand my list, but so far;

NCBD 10/1

AfterShock Comics
Monstro Mechanica #2
Writer: Paul Allor
Artist: Chris Evenhuis
Ok, confession time, I haven’t got around, still need to read the first issue, but “A new series starring Leonardo da Vinci, his female apprentice, Isabel, and their wooden robot! “, well it could be interesting.

Pestilence #6
Writer: Frank Tieri
Artist: Oleg Okunev
Cover: Tim Bradstreet
The “true” story of the great pestilence. Its Zombies and Knights, oh did I mentions its zombies and Knight 🙂

Image Comics
Coyotes #3
Story: Sean Lewis
Art/ Cover: Caitlin Yarsky
Fabulous art and a interesting spin on old werewolf myth.

Port of Earth #3
Story: Zack Kaplan
Art/ Cover: Andrea Mutti
Sci-fi, aliens and a whole lot of not so nice future, what’s not to like.

Witchblade (2017)#2
Story: Caitlin Kittredge
Art/ Cover: Roberta Ingranata, Bryan Valenza
Like this new take on the Witchblade and its new host. It feels and looks a bit more “modern” (for lack of a better word) then the old series.

Marvel
Runaways (2017) #5
Writer:Rainbow Rowell
Artist: Kris Anka
The latest Runaway is a must have.

Titan Comics
Normandy Gold #5
Writer: Megan Abbott, Alison Gaylin
Artist: Steve Scott
A kick-ass Sheriff, murder and prostitution in the 1970s.

Zenescope
Van Helsing vs Robyn Hood #1
Writer: Ralph Tedesco
Artist: Allan Otero
I know, I know, but its sort of like really nice comfort food.

Copperhead #17
Image Comics
Story: Jay Faerber

Cover: Ron Riley, Scott Godlewsk

I like this new story arc that started with issue #15, looking forward to learn more of Clara’s darkest secrets.

Dark Fangs #2
Image Comics
Story: Miles Gunter

Can’t decide if I like this new series or not, but water-environment-vampire-thingie…well I just can’t resist that.

Redlands #5
Image Comics
Story / Art: Jordie Bellaire, Vanesa Del Rey
Cover: Vanesa Del Rey

The south, witches, ghosts, über-cool women, violence – yes! I’m so in love with Redlands.

13 Days #1
TBS Planet
Story: Rajeev Tamhankar

I have no idea what this is, or who the creator are, but could be interesting…

Unholy Grail #5

Arthur, Camelot, the Holy Grail, magic and demons…yes of course I like this series.

That’s my pull-list of the week, what comics are you picking up?

Veckans serieköp, 3/5

Så gick återigen en vecka, känns som den som passerat varit extra kort. Då är det kanske tur i oturen att ur både förra veckans seriesläpp och denna veckas var det inte så många som jag i slutändan plockade upp, bara 4 denna veckan med (och min plånbok blev lite extra nöjd).

Postal 20Postal #20
Image – Top Cow

Story: Bryan Hill
Art: Isaac Goodhart
Cover: Linda Sejic

Postal är en serie som jag ibland inte kan få nog av och ibland känns sådär (har nog mer med mitt humör att göra än kvalité). Just nu har jag en liten paus, men kände ändå att jag behövde köpa det senaste numret. Postal är en märklig värld, hur kan jag som läsare bli helt hooked i personer om lever i en oerhört brutal värld, där alla i stort är antingen psykopater, våldsverkare eller kriminella på ett eller annat sätt kan man fråga sig. Men intressant är det och snyggt paketerat dessutom.
Rekommenderas till: de av er som vill ha något annat än superhjältar, mer anti-hjältar kanske är rätt ord. Det är brutalt men snyggt.


Pestilence 01 - AfterShock ComicsPestilence #1
AfterShock Comics

Story: Frank Tieri
Art: Oleg Okunev
Cover: Tim Bradstreet

It’s the late 14th Century, and a Great Pestilence, the “Black Death” is sweeping across Europe, killing over 100 million people. BUT, what if history as we know it was a lie? What if, in reality, this was no straightforward plague, but the FIRST non-recorded Zombie Infestation of man? Ex-Crusader Roderick Helms and his fellow “black ops” agents the Church, Fiat Lux, must seek out the cause of this undead outbreak and vanquish it before mankind ceases to exist!

Ooookay!
Så ärligt, hur kan jag INTE plocka upp denna, medeltid, pesten, ZOMBIES, f.d. korstågsfarare, (hemlig?) KYRKO-grupp…
Oh yes, I’m in!
Rekommenderas till:…tja jag antar zombie och medeltidsfans…typ. Jag får återkomma helt enkelt.


Stained 01Stained #1
4Five1

Story: David Baron
Art: David Baron
Cover: Steve Morris

Meet Emma London: recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and did we mention…part machine.
Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t. Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice…

You had me at Hello!
Eller snarare, när det nämndes kvinnlig bounty hunter, halvt maskin och sedan presenteras som någon form av noir/sci-fi. Klart jag måste läsa!


The Courier 02The Courier #2 (of 5)
Zenescope

Story: Ralph Tedesco
Art: JG Miranda
Colored by: Bryan Valenza

In 2033 less than 1% of the population survived a devastating pandemic virus. Half of those who lived were immune while half of the survivors mutated into something disturbingly subhuman. Now decades later, the world has rebuilt in many ways but has become something else entirely. Strongholds of human survivors have been set up independently of one another across parts of what is formerly the United States….

Var en mindre novell till intro-text för hela serien, så se til att klicka på länken ovan så får ni hela texten (jepp, jag är lite lat ikväll)
Kort och gott, nära framtid-ish, lite wasteland och definitiv dystopi vibb, jupp, kan nog funka för mig.
Del 2 kom ut idag, då jag helt missat denna serie så blev det till att inhandla första delen också. Vi får väl se om det är något att investera lästid på

Så allt från nutids story (typ),
medeltids zombies för att sedan titta in i framtiden och blanda noir, sci-fi och dystopi. Med andra ord så känner jag mig rätt nöjd med dagens inköp. 😀
Något av ovan som skulle locka dig?
