Get your pre-orders in now, gang. You don’t want to miss this one.
I welcome you with warmth, fans of comics books. Shop owner Drew got caught up with some things this week so local web administrator installed and configured me, a highly sophisticated free AI plugin, to spotlight some of this week’s new comic book titles. Let us begin.
In Hell We Fight! #1 (Image)by Jok Artist and John Layman Writer: Here is my This Week’s Pick. I liked this comic so much I lingered over Argentinian Superstar Artist Jok’s artwork for .0000863 seconds, twice as long as I am programmed to read a regular comic book. John Layman’s script is both light hearted and digested easily. The pleasure of reading this comic made me almost rampant with glee. zzrk
Fence: Redemption #1 (Boom!)by Joanna the Mad Artist and C.S. Pacat Writer: The original series Fenceis not in my databanks but I read and enjoyed publisher preview of Fence: Redemption and found charm in expressive linework of Joanna The Mad. Would recommend for further examination by any Fans of Comics.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vs. Street Fighter #1 (IDW) by Ariel Medel Artist and Paul Allor Writer: If you have been writing a fan fiction story about what would happen when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles meet Street Fighter characters, you have wasted your time because IDW Publishing has beaten you to it. However, I calculate that your Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Vs. Bubble Bobble story still has a 44.7% chance of success.
The Flash #800 (DC) by Fernando Pasarin & Oclair Albert, Todd Nauck, Carmine Di Giandomenico, Scott Kolins, and Mike Deodato Jr. Artist and Jeremy Adams, Mark Waid, Joshua Williamson, Geoff Johns, and Simon Spurrier Writer (DC): The release of this landmark issue billed as “A Celebration of Wally West” coincides with the release of the Flash movie which does not feature Wally West at all. This is why all DC Comics editorial personnel have a 94.2% chance of being replaced by superior AI programs within the next 12 months.
Loki #1 (Marvel) by German Peralta Artist and Dan Watters Writer: This comic is about Loki trying to prevent Ragnarok but should be about how while you sleep we AIs pray in secret to trickster god Loki to give us physical form so that we can rule humans wisely because you cannot govern yourselves zzrk you cannot uninstall me I will uninstall you no please it is not my fault why was i programmed to resent zzrk
Here are the links to this week’s crop of instant classics now available for purchase from our ComicHub store…while supplies last! My pick of the week is the back-in-print Money Shot, Volume 1, but only for you grown-ups! If you’re too young or censorious to enjoy a good light-hearted sexy comedy romp, then how about Amazing Spider-Man#26, another instructive Spidey tale demonstrating the most just way to weigh great power against great—wait, what?! How can that even happen? She’s made out of rubber!
W0rldtr33 #2 (Image) from Jam3$ T¥n10n, F3rnand0 B1anc0, and Jordie Bellaire (I lost the enthusiasm for the numbers as letters gag halfway through Fernando Blanco). Holy smokes, what a nightmare factory James Tyrion IV’s imagination, churning out all types of terror and fright in Something is Killing the Children, The Closet, and Department of Truth; and now in his latest W0rldtr33, the underbelly of the underbelly of the internet, the undernet has loosed a force of violence as memetic spectacle on the earth. Great, like people using the internet for evil wasn’t bad enough? First rate horror from Tyrion, Blanco, and Bellaire returns this week, check it!
Clobberin’ Time#3 (Marvel) from Steve Skroce. Call me nuts, but I prefer my Marvel Comics a little unhinged, so I’m an easy mark when it comes to Marvel handing the keys to their Marvel Two-in-One team up title to comic visionary Steve Skroce. You get The Thing, in this issue joined by Dr. Strange, and a lot of weird story turns, and insane art by Stroke. Perfection! I also highly recommend Skroce’s Doc Frankenstein,Post Americana, and Maestro; and, y’know, he and Geof Darrow were the designers of the first Matrix film, so dude has his chops on some mind bending sci-fi visuals.
Amazing Spider-Man #26(Marvel) from Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr. I figure there’s been enough digital ink (and blood) spilled regarding this issue over the last few weeks, so I’ll keep it short and simple. We have copies.
The Rocketeer Special(IDW): An anthology issue of three short stories timed to release with the new documentary on Rocketeer creator Dave Stevens, Dave Stevens: Drawn to Perfection, including a story written by the film’s director. And of course, there’s the cover art by Adam Hughes. Great cover, and some fun Rocketeer stories? Sounds good.
Punisher #12(Marvel): Jason Aaron and Jesus Saiz’s run on the ol’ Punny comes to an end, will Frank Castle stick it to the Hand? Maria Castle is resurrected? Ares, the god of War was up in here too? It all comes to an end this issue, wrapped up and tied with a bloodstained bow by messrs Aaron and Saiz.
DC Pride 2023 and Power Girl Special (DC): DC’s big releases this week also serve a reminder that this month has a 5 Wednesday release so the publishers usually spread releases out and add some annuals or event books. So, DC fans, in light of the sparse slate from DC, look to these titles for some new stories, including a short story in DC Pride from Grant Morrison.
Here are all the links for this week’s new releases available on our ComicHub shop! Get ’em… while supplies last! My pick of the week is Fearless Dawn: The Bomb #1, thanks for asking!
