Happy New Comics Wednesday 3/25/15 - We Can Never Go Home, Multiversity Ultra Comics, Wytches, Walking Dead edition!

 I can't decide what my favorite comic is this week, We Can Never Go Home Again or Mutiversity Ultra Comics - so I call a tie! We Can Never... is kind of like if the comics Stray Bullets and Deadly Class had a wonderful baby! This week's Multiversity is illustrated by Doug Mahnke and is an awesome meta / breaking the fourth wall story! This week's Walking Dead is really a beautiful issue and I'm not saying that ironically! Can't wait to read Darth Vader #3 with the introduction of some new characters!
 One week away for Convergence! Seriously, this looks like a lot of fun Ethan Van Sciver draws the #0 issue!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 2/11/15 - Darth Vader, Walking Dead, Spider-Verse, Thor edition!

 Marvel is taking their whole return to publishing Star Wars comics pretty seriously! This week's Darth Vader #1, by Keiron Gillen and Salvador Larroca is page after page of pure excitement! This week's Walking dead issue is a special Valentine's day issue (grin)! If you've never read Darwyn Cooke's excellent New Frontier (shame on you - grin), well DC just released this gorgeous hardcover volume collecting the entire series (which used to be done as two trade paperbacks) with LOTS of extras - highest possible recommendation!
 Second chapter of Black Vortex, new Thor! The mystery title that has been affected by light glare is Amazing Spider-Man #14, the final chapter of the crazy good Spider-Verse storyline!
The return of Chaykin's Satellite Sam, Velvet, and the first Ellis Trees trade paperback! Southern Bastards is out too, as well as Astro City and Winter Soldier!

 SO many great comics today!! BIG issue of Avengers! Grant Morrison & Chris Burnham's Nameless is about as fantastic as a great comic gets (if you miss the art of Frank Quitely, Burnham's style evokes his!)!

Couple of big new developments in this week's Superman!
