Gentlemen, for the last fifteen years, I’ve fought at this table alongside your predecessors in the struggle against the Comic Book. Now I do not wish to seem melodramatic, but I do wish to impress upon you a lesson I learned with bitter tears and great sacrifice. The Comic Book understands only one language: action. Respects only one word: force.

Comeback TP

By Ed Brisson, Michael Walsh, and Jordie Bellaire

Time travel, mystery, adventure! This is a fun little story about a business who you can hire to go back in time and fix things for you! But it turns out, and this will shock readers of fiction, that things are not what they seem. I know, right?! It’s expertly crafted and plotted by Ed Brisson, with just enough confusing (the good kind) time travel hoohah, and features wonderful art from Michael Walsh, and up and comer if I’ve ever seen one, along with masterful colors from Jordie Bellaire. Don’t blow this one, and take control of the present.

Spider-Men TP

By Brian Michael Bendis & Sara Pichelli

Okay, so you missed this mini-series when it came out in issues. And then you missed it when it was released in hardcover. Well, now here it is in softcover and you’re running out of excuses! Do you enjoy Spider-Man? Do you enjoy great character pieces? Do you enjoy fantastic art? Well, what are you waiting for, chief?

Red Handed: The Fine Art of Strange Crimes HC

By Matt Kindt

Easy. The writer and artist of our May 2013 Book of the Month selection has yet another new hardcover on the shelves this week. So much depends on a town called Red Wheelbarrow, and Red Wheelbarrow depends on Detective Gould. If Mind MGMT cranked your Rubics Cube, this new self-contained mystery ought to keep your imagination percolating.



  1. Damn Spider-Men is so good. Really looking forward to the sequel.

  2. Definitely want to second the Comeback recommendation. I got to talk with Ed Brisson, Michael Walsh and Jordie Bellaire at C2E2, and they are all awesome creators (and people!) that are worth your attention.

    And Michael Walsh made me a tremendously awesome Jim Gordon sketch — if DC ever resurrects Gotham Central, I think Walsh is your man.

  3. Comeback will DEFINITELY read better as a trade in one sitting. I read it monthly and could not keep up with WTF was happening.

  4. I read Amazing Spider-Man and starting collecting the issues from #655 but I never had the occasion to jump in on Ultimate Spider-Man so I passed this mini as I am not reading Miles Morales story (yet!). Should I still pick it up not knowing half of it? Will I still enjoy it?
