It's Comic Book Wednesday! Maybe you haven't picked out your books yet this week, that's okay, we got a list of all the freshest shit right here. http://www.comiclist.com/index.php
I'll be grabbing the below for an early reason to give thanks.
Thanos #13 just because it's being written by Donny Cates. Cates is the writer of Redneck and God Country, two books I enjoyed thoroughly. This will be the first Marvel issue I've bought since Jessica Jones relaunched (and boy was that series boring). Hopefully Donny Cates has the freedom to do what he wants.
Red Sonja #11 is a series that started by placing the she-devil with a sword in modern day New York. There was plenty of fan service in that run, and I was surprised at how quickly Amy Chu (the writer) had Sonja learn the new world. I was afraid they were going to make her incompetent. Now her police officer friend Max has been transported back to Sonja's time, and they have to find a way to get her there, and him back.
Spawn #280 is a new story arc in a series I stopped reading back around issue 130. I used to really enjoy Spawn, so I'm jumping in to see if it has gotten better since the time of Vampires and Ninja's (seriously, what the hell was that about it?)
Eleanor and the Egret #5 Sam Keith and John Layman working on a story about a woman that steals fine art with her bird companion, what is there to not like? Just the idea of The Maxx's artis combined with the author of Chew should excite most comic fans.
Redneck #7 I mentioned above how much I love Donny Cates, and this book is one of the reasons why. So glad to see he gets to continue doing independent books while signed to Marvel.
Glitterbomb : The Fame Game #3 I really enjoyed the first series of Glitterbomb (6 issues) so I have been continuing to pick it up with this one. The story focuses on a different lead character this time around, but both Glitterbomb stories are about people who are obsessed with fame. Whether they were famous as a younger star, or are a young person just becoming famous. The things people will do to keep their name relevant, and the monsters that unleash from within us.
Last but not least is X-O Manowar #9. I was never into X-O when I was a kid, but this relaunch/continuation has been fantastic so far. Valiant really loses me when they force their shittier characters into storie, but luckily, X-O Manowar is self contained and there is no trace of Faith or Archer or any of their other characters. It's been a deep, refreshing story about a man trying to find solice, being captured as a slave, using his skills to defend himself, and using his wits to decipher what the true goal of those in power is.
