Where Shawn looks at the New Releases and lets you know which books she is most excited about!

1) Rocketeer Complete Collection HC vol 01

rocketeer cover

IDW collects the entire Rocketeer series for the first time in this fancy hardcover. Dave Stevens beautifully wrote and illustrated the Rocketeer, and for this edition it is recolored by the incomparable Laura Martin. Rocketeer is a throwback to the pulps of the 30s and 40s with plenty of action, adventure and jet packs!

2) Incorruptible #1

Mark Waid brings to you a story about a villain who decides to turn over a new leaf. It is about reform and redemption set in the same world as Irredeemable. After the Plutonian goes berserk Max Daring (formally Max Damage) steps in to make things right again.

3) Chimichanga #1

Eric Powell + Circus Performers = Awesome!

4) Uncle Scrooge #386

I think Uncle Scrooge is my favorite of the Boom! Studios Disney re-launches. I love the clean and crisp art and the stories are so much fun. Reading this book is like being a little kid again and watching cartoon right when I got off from school. I love it!


5) Olympus TP vol 01

If you came by for the sale you had the opportunity to meet the writer Nathan Edmundson! Olympus stars two brothers (Castor and Pollux) who are in service to Zeus to protect mankind. Christian Ward‘s art is pretty trippy. It is bright and colorful and helps create this ephemeral world based in mythology. Do yourself a favor and check it out, if you haven’t done so already!
