STAFF PICKS :: SECONDS :: JULY 16, 2014

July 15, 2014 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks rico_staff_picksRICO’S PICK :: SECONDS: Seconds is the new book by Lost at Sea and Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. I’m going into this new book pretty much blind aside from a few character designs I’ve see online. Nathan Fairbairn colored this 300+ page book and we already KNOW he and Bryan look great together from seeing the recent color versions of the Scott Pilgrim series. Super nice lettering is provided by Heroes pal Dustin Harbin. I’m very excited for this one, check it out tomorrow!

STAFF PICKS :: SPREAD #1 :: JULY 09, 2014

July 08, 2014 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks rico_staff_picksRICO’S PICK :: SPREAD #1: OK, I’ll be honest, I don’t usually like gory and/or scary stuff. I know a lot of you do though and I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss this new book by Luther Strode writer Justin Jordan and the very talented art team of Kyle Strahm and Felipe Sobreiro. The short pitch on this book is “Lone Wolf and Cub in a world eaten by John Carpenter’s The Thing”. Spread looks like it’s going to be insane and you can grab issue #1 at Heroes on Wednesday. I don’t think this one will stay on our shelves for very long.

I do have to mention how much I LOVE the logo Strahm created for this book, it’s gross and gorgeous!

STAFF PICKS :: ROCKET RACCOON #1 :: JULY 02, 2014

June 30, 2014 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks heather_staff_picksHEATHER’S PICK :: ROCKET RACCOON #1: Occasionally the mere announcement of a book is enough to convince me to put it in my pull list.  Rocket Raccoon is one of those books.  I’ve been waiting to read this book since it was announced that Skottie Young would be both writing and drawing it.  Rocket is an amusing draw all on his own (Who doesn’t love a wise cracking, gun toting raccoon?), but a solo book by a creator I adore? Sold!

The previews of the first issue prove this book is going to be ridiculously fun!  I can’t wait to find out how Groot is starring in some sort of intergalactic wrestling match. I look forward to seeing all the adventures Rocket and Groot have ahead of them.
