This Week’s Comics – July 8th, 2015

This Week’s Comics is the pull list of Comic Books recommended by Hush Comics, with notes and suggestions by co-owner, Sherif Elkhatib.

Recommendations:

Archie #1: Disclaimer here: I’ve never read an Archie book. There’s a reason the series has lasted over 75 years, right? This reboot is big news, and not just because it’s a chance to start anew with one of the oldest (and still most relevant) characters not donning a cape. The creative team taking over for the new series is writer Mark Waid (Daredevil) and artist Fiona Staples (Saga). If that doesn’t excite you, then you may be a lost cause.

Invader Zim #1: Holy 90’s nostalgia factor, you guys! The Doom Song plays on repeat in my head as I do a little Gir gig around the house. Dib has forgone all hygiene to track Zim back down, and his sacrifice has been duly noted. Unlike all the other 90’s cartoons, which have flooded IDW’s catalog in the past couple years, Zim has found a home with ONI Press.

Star Trek/Green Lantern #1: So many months have passed from when this series was first announced that I forgot it was even coming out this soon. Crossovers, especially IDW crossovers, can be exceptionally crappy. However, if there are any two franchises that can blend together and pull it off, it’s these two intergalactic franchises. I’m especially curious to see how Captain Kirk and Hal Jordan get along since they are built off the same archetype (it looks like we’re getting movie reboot Star Trek).

1872 #1: If you loved the original 1602 like me, then you’re gonna lovin the most rootinest, tootinest time displacement storyline from Marvel – 1872. Sheriff Steve Rogers and Anthony Stark (drunkard Anthony Stark) rule over the town of Timely. This could very well suck, but it won’t matter. If we get some good art and Wild West style actions, it will be worth it.
