COMING UP NEXT with Martinez – 1/28/15


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:


Batman Eternal #43 by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and David Lafuente

Were you confused when you read Batman #28 waaaaay back then? Well here’s where your questions are answered. We get a Bluebird story and we get to see Selena Kyle as a crime boss. Oh hey and Stephanie Brown is in it too. Yeah, I’m just getting it for Bluebird…


Criminal Vol. 1 Coward TP by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips

New publisher, new printing. This is a great opportunity to pick up one of the greatest crime books ever written. Most of you know my love for Brubaker’s writing so I’m not going to into again. If you’ve been liking Fatale and The Fade Out, you should be picking this up.


Multiversity Guidebook by Grant Morrison and Various

When it was first solicited, I never thought I’d be recommending Multiversity to anyone, let alone twice. I enjoy reading guidebooks and I’ve enjoyed this series. There you go, that’s why I’m picking this up. Also there is a Kamandi story in there. I will warn you though, it’s a $7.99 book.


Vertigo Quarterly: Black by Various

This issue marks the last of the CYMK vertigo anthology. There have been some good stories in these books. This one in particular interested me because of some of the creators featured in it. Lemire, Francanvilla, Seagle. Should be worth checking out.
