Looking for something new to try out? Check out these great picks new on shelves this week:
Writer: Sam Humphries; Artist: Caitlin Rose Boyle
Synopsis: Jonesy is a self-described "cool dork" who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. She's a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There's only one catch-it doesn't work on herself. She's gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong...
Why We Are Excited: We've been digging the work that writer Sam Humphries has been doing for Marvel lately (Star-Lord, plus some Avengers and X-Men related titles), so we are curious to see what he'll do in this creator-owned setting without any capes. Plus Jonesy sounds to be a whole lot cooler to hang out with then some fat baby with wings and a diaper.
Writers: Various; Artists: Various; Cover Art: Tony Moore
Synopsis: Twenty-five years ago in February 1991, the New Mutants encountered a blabber mouthed mercenary who tore through Xavier's mansion and into the very heart of the 1990s. Now, that self-same degenerate is one of the most popular heroes in the world, an Avenger, and maybe the smelliest and grossest person that tumblr swoons over. Come see how Deadpool reacts to life at the top of the world...(hint: he does not handle it well). PLUS: A full array of stories from Deadpool's new allies, the members of the Mercs for Money! Oh...and I think there is, like...some other Deadpool thing this month people are excited about? I forget what.
Why We Are Excited: It's not often that the 7th issue of a book gets selected in our Top 3, but leave it to DP to change our minds. With the movie out this weekend, this 25th Anniversary issue should be able to hold us over until opening night. It's loaded with guest writers and artist from DP's past and present, as well as this sweet cover by Tony Moore.
Writers: Various; Artists: Various; Cover Art: Bruce Timm
Synopsis: From Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, the masterminds behind the critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series, comes this early adventure of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, packed with hilarious hijinx and tons of action! Harley and Ivy want to take down the Batman once and for all, but first, Harley's got to prove that she has what it takes to make it as a bona fide villain in Gotham City. This new hardcover also includes tales from Batman Adventures Holiday Special #1, Batman: Gotham Knight #14, Batman and Robin Adventures #8, Batman Adventures Annual #1, Batman Adventures #1 and Batman Black and White #3.
Why We Are Excited: Paul Dini and Bruce Timm really showed us what a great duo Harley and Ivy make, possibly rivaling Harley's recent team-up with Power Girl. Add in a few more stories to this Hardcover collections than what was previously in the Softcover version and we'll have to add another space on the bookshelf for this one.
