Runaways #1
“The gang is back! Well…most of them. If you’ve read the original series, I probably don’t have to convince you to check this out. A lot has happened to our Runaways since the last series, grab this to find out what’s next.

This Week’s Finest: Seven To Eternity #9

by Rick Remender, Jerome Opena & Matt Hollingsworth

Can the candid words of a tyrant be trusted? Can the intentions of a dying man be selfless? These are just a few of the questions posed in this week’s issue of Seven To Eternity. In this series, Remender has consistently tiptoed the line of compromising his character’s integrity. In issue #9 the characters are no longer tiptoeing that line, they are straight up straddling it. But wait, there is more! Not only do we reach a new high point in Adam’s morally ambiguous journey, but with Jerome Opena back on the book teamed up with colorist Matt Hollingsworth, we get some absolutely incredible fantasy action pages that rival any big budget film. My phone screen saver used to be a picture of Pennywise, now it is a picture of spirit Zeb plunging his dual wielding lightning swords into the belly of the Black Well. I believe a fist pumping “F**k yeah!” is required at this time.

Dastardly and Muttley #1
“Another Hanna-Barbera related comic from DC. The rest have mostly been much better than I expected, so I’m checking this out. It helps that the creative team is extra intriguing, I’m an Ennis fan, and the preview art from Mauricet looks fantastic”

Creighton’s Recommendations…
Saucer State #3
“Fans of Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly’s Vertigo series would be forgiven if they were apprehensive about Cornell and Kelly resuming the series at a new publisher after a four year gap. Would they be able to retain the same spark while updating their tale of politics, trauma and aliens to an altered social landscape? Based on the first two issues, the answer is yes, they can. Cornell and Kelly have picked up their narrative without losing a beat, updating its context without neglecting any of the elements which made the original so compelling. Vertigo’s loss has been IDW’s, and reader’s, gain.”

This Week’s Finest: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #8

by Robert Aguirre-Sacasa & Robert Hack

Do you remember the ABC show Sabrina The Teenage Witch starring Melissa Joan Hart? If you are a late 80’s child like myself, it must have played some role in your after school routine when you were 12. It had many of the same beats that would soon make the Harry Potter books a huge success. Sabrina’s aunt Hilda was played by the hilarious Caroline Rhea, and her aunt Zelda was played by the charming Beth Broderick. My school night wouldn’t be the same without a little Sabrina Spellman in it. Well, this comic book is not that show. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack have taken the fun supernatural side of Archie Comics, and stripped it down to the terrifying witchcraft elements that linger just below the surface. It is like the difference between Teen Wolf and Silver Bullet. One uses a supernatural mythology to add a fun spin on a rather mundane story; the other focuses on the truly terrifying details of the unnatural world. This is the beauty of the diverse range of the horror genre. There can exist an after school special staring a teenage witch, and there can exist a terrifying comic based on the same character. One is a guilty pleasure for a 12 year old, while the other keeps a 31 year old man up at night.

Spy Seal #1
“Rich Tommaso dives into the world of espionage adventure comics. Marketed as an homage of sorts to classic Tin Tin, but with anthropomorphic characters working for MI-6. Tommaso has a style all his own, but with this comic the visual link to Herge is clear. A unique voice in contemporary comics, Rich Tommaso’s work is something everyone should check out”

Redlands #1
“Superstar colorist Jordie Bellaire makes her writing debut this week. Teaming up with the always fantastic Vanessa Del Rey for a tale of crime and horror about a coven of witches with devious plans in a small Florida town. I’m very excited for this one, and the creative team alone warrants your attention”
