Happy New Comics Wednesday! 1/22/14 - Today's edition brought to you by the word "Dead"!

Leading the pack of comic book excitement today are five comics with the word "dead" in their titles! Walking Dead #120, which really lives up to its story arc title, All Out War, with this issue! Pretty Deadly and the second issue of Dead Body Road, a great revenge story! The man who pretty much started the zombie craze back in 1968 with his movie, The Night of the Living Dead, George Romero, has a new Marvel Max comic out, Empire of the Dead, drawn by Alex Maleev and the first issue is off to a good start! My favorite comic with "dead" in its title is Rick Remender's new title for Image, Deadly Class, beautifully drawn by Wes Craig, featuring assassin action and intrigue (it's the best comic I've ever read by Remender and it's fantastic!)!

James Robinson is now at Marvel with All New Invaders, and this is the best thing I've read from him in a long time (I liked his Earth Two, but it wasn't ever up to the level of his Starman)! And it has great art by Steve Pugh, an artist that I'm usually not on board with, but here with some gorgeous coloring, he really shines! If the following issues are as good as this first issue, this will be one of my most looked forward to titles every month! A few other debuts today are the first issue of the newly launched Unwritten by Mike Cary and Peter Gross, a great jumping on point for an always amazing series! There's a new Judge Dredd mini series, Mega-City Two that looks out of this world, and there's a new Dynamite series called Bad Ass that looks like a lot of fun!

A new issue of Hawkey, featuring Kate! Yes, this is issue #16, as artist David Aja is late with #15, but it'll be worth the wait. I'm sure (yes, they're releasing these issues out of order)! This was SUCH a wonderful issue, self-contained, with a lot of heart, you don't even have to have read any of the other  issues, but you'll want to after reading this one! This title has been regularly late, but I'm glad Marvel is just waiting for the greatness to happen!

The second issues of All New X Factor, Black Widow, Avengers World, and Origin II land today, as well as the last issue of FF! The penultimate issue of Batman Zero Year is out today as well as a great new issue of Batman and Two Face (although as good as this story arc has been, I'm looking forward to it being over as it has been a little long)!

New issue of Justice League, Wonder Woman, Zero (a REALLY good issue!), Avengers, Batman '66, a new Cataclysm X-Men, The Massive, All New X-Men (yes, an issue just came out last week, Marvel is insane with their schedules), Animal Man, and Mind Mgmt are all present too, to make this a week of great, varied comic book thrills and wonderment! Remember to give me ego strokes about how great our redesign of the front of the store looks (grin)!
