Pretty slow week for new comics, though a couple of things catch my eye. Always a True Believer plus its Kirby Craze I have a pull on Jean Grey and I might just have to pick up


MAYBE Wonder Woman and Darkseid too?? A slow week in comics is still a $20 affair
What about yourselves?? Looking forward to any titles??

I'll grab All Star Batman. Only 2 issues left in the series so I may as well ride it out and get the full run. I'll grab red hood and the outlaws annual. Maybe the darkseid special. Everything is a $5 book this week, which is never fun.

Agree it's a slow week, other than Secret Empire #10. Been a long time since I only had four issues in my pull list! 😂

Haha that's why I grab those True Believers. Feels good to grab a comic for a dollar still. How is that Allstar Batman??? I love the Batman Jokes and Riddles run right now.

@JLS_Comics "exclusively in Image+" (until next year when we release an "exclusive" 500 copy comic...and then until a month later when we release the hardcover, cheaper, longer, and with better cover art) Hehehe. 😎

Jenny Frison's WW covers have been, mostly, pretty outstanding.

All-Star is not bad, but it doesn't justify the 4.99 price point. The first arc was not great in my view. The story was ok, by John Romita Jr.'s art is just not good these days (that's blasphemous to say I know) and it kinda killed the arc for me. The other arcs have been much better.

Yeah, I think they decided to wrap it at 14 (or is it 15?). It was selling ok, but not as high as you would expect for Snyder. I think that 4.99 price was an albatross around its neck. My understanding is that they want to use Snyder for really good one-shots and mini-series that will let him do some bold storytelling without tying him to a monthly. TBH, I will not miss this series too much, especially the price. King's Batman is finding its stride and I am happy with that being my Batman book. I will be jumping back onto TEC too b/c they are revisiting the Tim Drake story thread. That'll be enough Batman for me.

It is a image comics miniseries by Scott Snyder (w) and Jock (a). Basically, it's a horror story that follows a family who move to a town and their daughter is marked as a sacrifice to a coven of witches that live in the woods

@NilesPaine @dpiercy
I have to agree on this weeks WW cover. I wonder if this was an homage to the Nat. Geo. cover from back in the day.






This was the first thing I thought of when I saw this cover. Is it just me or do others see it too?

They aren't dissimilar. Having said that, looks more like an influence rather than direct homage to me.

Wow very observant. There has to be some influence here, especially the "folds" of the headdress on the lower right. If WW mouth were closed I'd call it a clear homage.
