For what this week lacks in quantity it certainly makes up for in quality, come check out what I think will be a hit this Wednesday!
Prometheus Fire And Stone Omega
Kelly Sue DeConnick’s one shot addition to the huge Prometheus project Dark Horse set out on during 2014 concludes the story and strangely enough makes me want more of Prometheus. Considering the actual movie spun me around till I couldn’t figure out which way to the Bat Cave, that’s saying something. I have to give it to DH and the creators, this was a huge deal and they all contributed very well to it.
Harley Quinn Valentines Day Special
It’s Valentine’s Day in Gotham City, and Harley Quinn. Those two facts alone will make this one of the most enjoyable books hitting shelves this week. I love how DC has committed hard on Harley Quinn, if nothing else but to give two of my favorite creators continuing successful work: Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. Also because in it’s own right pays tribute to Bruce Timm and Paul Dini.
Kate Leth has been a runaway star throughout 2014 and continues to climb the ranks aggressively garnering new projects and cultivating fandoms. Scissorhands being her latest acquisition has been a lovely addition to the film’s mythos thus far and I eagerly await more installments of her narrative. It’s really a shame that Tim Burton doesn’t like comics, I think he’d enjoy these.
Kieron Gillen joins Jason Aaron in the Star Wars Writers Club with his take on Dark Vader. Gillen, the creative mind behind Young Avengers and the none-more-goth success The Wicked And The Divine, has me very curious about what he’ll bring to the table providing new backstory and insight to the character. Considering the old expanded universe is done away with he’ll be working on a huge clean slate; I can’t wait to see him fill it in. Also featuring the return of another fan favorite, Salvador Larroca, the work horse that brought up the art of Matt Fraction’s The Invincible Iron Man!
Terry Moore’s beloved black and white horror fable returns again. By far the best indie book of it’s genre, this title and it’s creator have endured much hardship finding it’s groove in sales but that doesn’t affect the quality in the slightest. If you enjoy mystical and malevolent forces versus a strong female protagonists, this book is for you!
As usual, sound off in the comments if there’s anything you’re looking forward to this week!
