This week, I&Nmates, is all about initial offerings.  In that, I’m buying and trying a slew of new books; and I’m hoping to hit on each one.

  • Cold Spots #2 (Image)
  • Maneaters #1 (Image): I&N Demand Holy shit!  I lovelovelove the premise.  Period. Add to that my enduring love for Chelsea Cain’s super-fun and femmly-friendly Mockingbird, and whattaya got?  Love enough to fill a litter box twice over!  Ask me about my parasitic infection, haterrrrrrrrrs!


  • Redneck #15 (Image)
  • Action Comics #1003 (DC)
  • Detective Comics #989 (DC)
  • Doomsday Clock #7 (DC)
  • Heroes in Crisis #1 (DC): I&N Demand Tom King.  Clay Mann.  More heroes than a deli-catered funeral reception for a friend!  And the word “Crisis.”  That adds up to a must buy in my book bag.


  • The Amazing Spider-Man #6 (Marvel)
  • The Sentry #4 (Marvel)
  • Bone Parish #3 (BOOM!)
  • Fearscape #1 (Vault): I&N Demand  Sounds good.  Will probably look good, too, considering Andrea Mutti (Rebels) is on art duty.


  • Friendo #1 (Vault): I&N Demand “What business is it of yours” why I’m interested in this book, Friendo? Playin’, B.  Yet another fun idea from Vault Comics!  I’ve got my good eye on the artist, Martin Simmonds.  (He happens to be working with main-man Monty Nero on Death Sentence: Liberty, which I’ve happily backed on Kickstarter–and which should be out soon!  Yay!  Until then-o, of course, I’ll try-o Friendo.)   Let’s see what kind of magic he’s got goin’ on with Alex Paknadel, who, for me, is an unknown quantity.  But the prospect of a VR BFF goin’ all 5150’s got me giggling back a few decades to the glorious sigh-fi flick Electric Dreams, which sparked my teen-aged imagination in many ways–one of those ways leading to the beautiful topography of a newly-discovered Virginia.  Giggles.


  • High Heaven #1 (AHOY): I&N Demand AHOY Comics rocked the world a couple of weeks ago with The Wrong Earth; and here’s Tom Peyer, this time teaming up with Greg Scott, ready to hit loftier heights with High Heaven.  Hell, yeah!


  • Hillbilly: Red-Eyed Witchery From Beyond #2 (Albatross)
  • X-O Manowar #19 (Valiant)

What are you looking forward to this week?
