Happy New Comics WEDNESDAY - 1st of the 2014 edition (collect them all)!

Okay, about a week ago I was lead to believe that this was the week that Marvel was going to be releasing a thousand of their new titles, but actually there's just a few new Marvel titles out (goes to show you that you shouldn't believe what you read on the internet - unless I write it - grin!). One of their big release that I thought would get buried is their one shot new short story collection, Marvel Now Point One, which features several great new stories by the creative teams that will be doing the respective titles featured in this comic. My favorites were the Slott & Allred Silver Surfer story and the new Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson & Adrian Alphona (that one really surprised me with how good and different it was!). There's also a cool Loki framing story by Al Ewing & Lee Garbett!

Detective Comics #27 is a great example of how a landmark / anniversary issue should be done! This year is the 75th birthday of the creation of Batman and Detective Comics #27 is a great start to what looks to be a BIG year for this character (too bad DC didn't do anything special for Superman last year for his 75th)!

Afterlife With Archie #3 is SOOOOOO good, this is just getting better from a strong first issue. A great Michonne moment in this week's Walking Dead! Sex Criminals - haven't read it yet, but it's next on my stack!
Here's some of this week's new Marvel series: Avengers World, Black  Widow, All New X Factor, and Revolutionary War! Also two issue of Galactus getting his hunger on are out this week!
The Matt Wagner Demon trade is back in print! Fatale is also out, as is Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Fairest, and Star Wars!

No, that's not a new issue of the great new Image series A Voice In The Dark, but issue three will be out next Wednesday, and we'll have the creator, Larime Taylor out all day (from 10-6pm, Wednesday, Jan. 15th) to talk about his comic, tell you how he produces it, sketch for you (he'll have a special sketch cover with him), and basically answer any question you have for him (ego strokes are always appreciated also!)!  Hope to see a lot of my fellow sequential art lovers today, but especially next Wednesday!
