Coming Up Next with Ivy & NOT Martinez — 6/18/2014

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:

wicked-divineThe Wicked + Divine by Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie

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.

PrintSex Criminals #6 by Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky

(to the tune of the Backstreet Boys) Brimping’s back, all right!

timthumb.phpThe 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.

detailSilver Surfer #3 by Dan Slott & Mike Allred

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!
