COMING UP NEXT with Ivy & SARAH! – 6/25/2014

Martin is still at the World Cup, so COMING UP NEXT is being handled this week by Ivy (Women Write About Comics) and SARAH (you know who she is). Let The Comic Book Shop’s two mouthy ladies lead you in the right direction!


Ivy’s Picks of the Pull:

3774272-1395788844000-all-new-ghost-rider-2-smith-variantAll-New Ghost Rider #4 by Felipe Smith & Tradd Moore

A few years ago, I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to comprehend a world where I’d be eagerly awaiting a Ghost Rider book every month. But All-New Ghost Rider has me doing exactly that. Tradd Moore’s art is gruesome enough to move along a violent plot in a way that is almost so over-the-top Tarantino bloody that it bridges into cartoon territory. This is the best that Ghost Rider has ever been — I suggest it even for the uninitiated.

Saga_20-1Saga #20 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

I took the last page of Sage #19 very personally, and I’ve been waiting with baited breath for the next issue ever since. Saga is the kind of book people are going to talk about for a long, long time: if you haven’t picked up the first trade, it’s only $10.

The Rest of Ivy’s Pull for 6/25/14: All-New Doop #3, Chew #42, Midas Flesh #7, Ms Marvel #5, Original Sins #2, Revival #21
