Here's some great new books to get you reading this week at Rick's Comic City:
Writer: Joe Kelly; Artist: Ed McGuinness
Synopsis: The Webbed Wonder and the Merc with a Mouth are teaming up for their first ongoing series EVER! It's action, adventure and just a smattering of (b)romance in this episodic epic featuring the WORLD'S GREATEST SUPER HERO and the star of the WORLD'S GREATEST COMICS MAGAZINE. Talk about a REAL dynamic duo!
Why We Are Excited: The advertising push for the upcoming Deadpool movie has us looking for more of the Merc (even if we had to watch The Bachelor to see a new trailer...I mean A FRIEND did, not me...). But now you team him up with Marvel's favorite Wall-crawler, just sit back and watch as the quips go flying by! Fun will be had and fourth walls will be broken!
Swamp Thing #1 (of 6) (DC Comics) $2.99
Writer: Len Wein; Artist Kelley Jones
Synopsis: Swamp Thing returns in an all-new series written by his co-creator, legendary writer Len Wein! Swamp Thing has received an ominous warning, and now he finds himself under attack from the forces of dark magic. These are more than just your average monsters-and there's something much worse looming on the horizon for Alec Holland!
Why We Are Excited: Len Wein returns to the monster he helped create! Add in that dark & moody art Kelley Jones was know for using on Batman to bring this world to life and we are sold! However, in the end, we might be sad that this is only a 6-issue miniseries...
Lone Wolf 2100 #1 (of 4) (Dark Horse) $3.99
Writer: Eric Heisserer; Artist: Miguel Sepulveda
Synopsis: 2100 CE. A devastating manmade plague is turning the human race into cannibalistic monsters known as the Thrall. But there is hope: young Daisy Ogami's blood holds the secret to a cure--if Itto, her android protector, can get her to a place where it can be extracted!
Why We Are Excited: It's a futuristic setting and take on the great Lone Wolf and Cub series. This series may actually be a bit scarier as the Thrall sound similar to the zombies from the Will Smith movie I Am Legend than just a gang of samurai's hunting down our protagonist. Either way, our swords can't be put away until they taste blood...or this comic. Either one.
