The Comic Wish List: 27th August 2014

Welcome to the twelfth instalment of the new weekly feature bringing you comic book previews on what we are looking forward to each and every week. The general rule will be that we will pick one indie, one DC and one Marvel and if merited an honorable mention (or two).

So if you are deciding how to spend your money this week on New Comic Book Day, don’t worry, we got you covered!! Here are a handful we think you should pick up!

WOW this issue has been delayed! I remember seeing the solicit for this what seems like 6 months ago. Either way, it’s a new arc so who cares about the delay. Another reason not to care is because Jae Lee is back on Art, Yay! A missing Superman, Lois Lane teaming up with Batman, and an appearance by the beautifully drawn Selina Kyle, what could be more exciting than that? If you were a fan of the first arc then I think this is definitely an issue that needs to be picked up this week.

This week we are graced with yet another tie in for the current Marvel Event – Original Sin. The solicits have said that we will get some unanswered questions revealed to us from Star-Lords time in the Cancerverse, so for those fans of the Abnett and Lanning Cosmic run, this may be the issue for you. This issue also sees Ed McGuinness introduction to Guardians, which should also be great for this issue.

Literally every book Image is bringing out at the moment seems to be a hit, and this week we have yet another new #1. Wayward! Set in Tokyo, but not the Tokyo as we know it! Why? Because its filled with monsters of myth and legend! OOO Scary!! With the usual fish out of water storyline, and involving a teenager and monsters, it’s easy to see why this book has been compared to Buffy. Yet Image is calling it a cross between that and Hellboy! This definitely sounds interesting!


Which books are you looking forward to this Wednesday, let us know in the comments……
