Comic Picks of the Week - 4th November
After the last minute selections put forward last week this week sees me get more organised and post on time.
With my Back to the Future trip behind me - the stack of books that accumulated in the week I was away opened, read, and put away - it's now time for the Christmas countdown to begin.
Once again this week there is a ton of choice - so - as always - without further ado here are my picks......
Niobe : She is Life #1
Hands up on this one - it's actually a book I know very little about - however - it seems to be on everyone's radar - so much so that issues are already selling for £15 + on the secondary market.
With this in mind if you see it then it could well be worth grabbing.
The story is about a wild elf teenager Niobe Ayutami who is the would be saviour of the vast and volitile fantasy world of Asunda.
Niobe's first appearance is actually in Untamed : A Sinners Prayer #1 - if you should stumble across that in your travels it's worth picking up too!
Anyway - this book can be ordered below -
Niobe : She is Life #1
Star Wars #11 - Action Figure Variant
Its been a few weeks since we had a Star Wars Action Figure Variant - but we've got one this time round.
Regular readers of this site will know I've been a fan of the action figure variants since day one - and the release this time is for Luke Skywalker : X-Wing Pilot.
Always worth getting - and another for the collection you can get this one below.....
Star Wars #11 - Figure Variant
Howard the Duck #1 - Gwenpool Variant
Howard the Duck? Gwenpool? Yup - that's right - and this book has the potential to be the pick of the week!!
Much like with Spider-Gwen everyone seems to be going Gwenpool crazy.
Sadly there is no presale link on this one - I haven't got any copies in order either so it's a free for all on the day.
That being said - if you want a link to Gwenpool's first appearance (first appearances are always good) look no further than 'Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #2' which is still available for order (at the moment) below......
Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #2
Two weeks ago we got Sunflower #1, last week gave us Self Storage #1 and this week sees Exmortis #1 hit shelves - what have all these books got in common? Simple - they all come from the hot publisher right now - 451 comics.
Expect this book to be just as much in demand as the others.
I was chatting to a few friends earlier this week and we all agreed that Sunflower and Self Storage are going to be must read books moving forward. Copies of #1 on both of these are sold out everywhere - if you do stumble across copies 100% pick them up!
So what is Exmortis about?
The synopsis reads as follows -
'When the Nazis unearth the long lost diary of the infamous Dr Victor Frankenstein they carry on his work reanimating the corpses of fallen soldiers and building an army of undead infantry to fend off the allied liberation.
To fight fire with fire, the allies recruit a guerilla force of supernatural proportions, corralling a team of experts that included Jack Glendon aka Wolfman, Junior aka Frankenstein, Vlad aka Dracula, Eric Leroux aka The Phantom and Hans Volger aka The Gillman.
The deadly dozen become our nations only hope and salvation against the Third Reich in an epic battle of gore and glory to stop the Red Menace and save the world from the most terrifying monster of them all - Man'
Another hit comic seems to be on the cards!
Grab this one below -
So there we go - November is here - and the Christmas countdown starts.
Other pick ups to keep an eye on this week include -
Uncanny X-Men #600
Deadpool #1 Hip Hop Variant
We Stand on Guard #5
So much choice - but no complaints from me!!
