This is one of those weeks that I write this because I am having a crappy week and making fun of myself and convincing to spend their hard earned money on comics makes me feel much better. Often times I take a look at the list on Monday and I don’t want anything then two days later I blow a bunch of money. I am a comic sellers dream. Easily swayed with no self control.
All Fall Down #1 $.099
This is the first of two Arcana books this week that I am highlighting. If you remember I really liked Becoming #1 a few weeks ago also from Arcana. Whenever possible I like to point out books people maybe would miss and Arcana is not a company everyone gives thought to when filling out there orders.
The premise of this book is a 13 year old girl accidentally steals all of the superpowers. The slightly different twist is she is the last superhero and need to learn to control them, and the heroes need to learn to live without their powers sometimes unsuccessfully. Also if you need one last reason it was written by Casey Jones.
Philosopher Rex #1 $.099
So here is the deal, and it hurts to admit this I don’t really know anything about this book. I know you’re saying “well we don’t know much about any numbers 1’s “ but I am being quite literal the preview write-up doesn’t help and I’ve seen no preview pages. So why you are you buying this you might say well it’s simple #1, cool name, cool cover. Enough said. I seriously need help because I am a few months away from being stuck in my house eating nothing but Dorito’s tacos and breathing really heavy while eating them.
Pick of the week 9/12
Hoax Hunters #3 $2.99
Written by: Michael Moreci, and Steve Seeley
Art by: Axel Medellin
I know what you are thinking but I had a hard time picking one this week because most of my books were continuing stories and I couldn’t really pick out one that would be a starting point. I was originally attracted to this book because of the writing and overall story idea. That has become a balance though because the art is becoming quite beautiful and a true extension of the story.
Truly creepy art is not easy but it’s pulled off in this book. There is stuff answered in this book but unfortunately more new questions are asked then answered. I am telling you probably not for the last time if you like supernatural stories, or even investigative type stuff you need this book in your pull. Also one last thing you can #0-3 for only $7 so what are you waiting for.
That’s it for this week I ask that you follow my lead and grab a book you wouldn’t normally give a shot to. Also remember to follow us on twitter me @Lunchbox700, and the show @burntweiners where you get awesome book recommendations and weird out of context sexual harassment between us and anyone dumb enough to join the conversation.
