COMING UP NEXT, a look at what our two resident opinionated blogger types, Ivy (Women Write About Comics) and Martinez (DE Pie-Cast) have to say about this week’s upcoming releases! Without further ado:
Ivy’s Picks of the Pull:
Silver Surfer #2 by Dan Slott & Mike Allred
The first issue of this series was so great — and I mean, I fully expected it to be — but seriously, you guys, this is a fantastic book. It’s fun, weird, and while it’s definitely cosmic, it’s grounded in a relatable story that is easily accessible to readers with no knowledge of or history with Norrin Radd.
Okay, I totally picked this one based 100% on how adorable it is. Becky & Frank of Tiny Kitten Teeth create an super cute, landscape-style story about Fionna and Cake for Adventure Time’s 2014 annual. This one is going to give you cavities.

Martinez’s Picks of the Pull:
Southern Bastards #1 by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour
Guys, this is the shortest week in a while for me. I am only pulling two books. So only one book on spotlight from me this week. However, I’m glad that it’s “Southern Bastards”. I’ve been a fan of Jason Latour since I read his contribution to the “Winter Soldier” ongoing last year. While he isn’t writing this book, I enjoy his art as well. Jason Aaron is a fantastic writer, and both members of the creative team have been very excited about the books release. It’s going to be a sweaty, gritty crime story set in the South. Both Jasons are from the South so I’m sure they’ll give it an authentic feel.
