Martinez is off on a grand adventure to the World Cup, so Coming Up Next is going to be a little different this week — Ivy (Women Write About Comics) is rolling solo! I’ll try to give you enough recommendations for the both of us!
Ivy’s Picks of the Pull:
I’m so pumped for this book. I got a chance to read the first issue as an advance copy, and I can tell you, it’s awesome. Ancient gods reincarnated as modern hipsters — full of that glamorous young adult angst that Gillen and McKelvie did so well on their Young Avengers run.
(to the tune of the Backstreet Boys) Brimping’s back, all right!
The Last Broadcast #2 by Andre Sirangelo & Gabriel Iumazark
The first issue of The Last Broadcast blew me away. Fans of The Prestige will love this mystery about a stage magician with a lot of secrets. Gorgeous art, too.
This book is just unashamedly fun and cosmic and ridiculous. Even if I wasn’t an Allred-obsessive, I’d recommend it.
The Rest Of Ivy’s Pull for 6/18/2014: Daredevil #4, Elektra #3, Iron Patriot #4, Original Sin #4, Thomas Alsop #1, Uncanny X-Men #22, Witchfinder Mysteries of Unland #1
There’s also a great selection of 2nd printings coming in this week, for those of you who missed an issue: Moon Knight #1-3, Ms. Marvel #2, and The Woods #1!
