COMING UP NEXT with Martinez – 12/03/14


A look at what our resident opinionated blogger type, Martinez (Pie-Cast) has to say about this week’s upcoming releases.

This Week’s Picks of the Pulls:

ANGELA2014001-DC11-3e44aAngela Asgard’s Assassin #1 by Kieron Gillen, Marguerite Bennett and Phil Jimenez

At last! We get to read more about the character Neil Gaiman brought over from Spawn. We haven’t been told to much about her besides what was revealed in the Original Sin tie-in, Thor and Loki: The Tenth Realm. Before, Angela was hanging out with the Guardians and pretty much staying out of the majority of the Marvel Universe. I’m excited to learn more, and Gillan has been known to write great Asgardian stories. His run on Journey into Mystery was pretty darn good. I am disappointed, however, that we haven’t been able to read anything written by Gaiman.

hellboy-BPRD-fbccfHellboy and the BPRD #1 by Mike Mignola, John Arcudi and Alex Maleev

Alright! New Hellboy series set in the 50’s! What more can you say? We’ll finally be able to learn a little more about Hellboy’s young life, something that has always been ignored by Mike Mignola. Well, it seems that this is about to change. Time to see some awkward, immature and teenage Hellboy! Most will recognize the artist, Alex Maleev, from his work on Daredevil and Moon Knight. From the look of the preview pages, his art is shaping up to be pretty solid on this title as well.

Shaft01-Cov-A-Cowan-d3d1fShaft #1 by David Walker and Bilquis Evely

Nothing like a classic 70’s action hero to round out your Wednesday. Shaft is a bad mother- Shut your mouth! Can you dig it?
