The penultimate new comics week of the year two thousand and fourteen of the common era is not one to blink at. With new OUTCAST, BLACK SCIENCE, DAREDEVIL, the latest volume of MANHATTAN PROJECTS, the first volume in the complete English translation of CORTO MALTESE and the debut Eric Stephenson’s THEY’RE NOT LIKE US there will be plenty of comics to keep you warm this cold holiday eve, at least until the next week.

“Anybody Who Expects GRATITUDE From A Cat Is A REAL Asshole…” COMICS! Sometimes It Might Just Be A Beautifully Illustrated Black Joke At The Expense of Catholicism!

During 1990-91 DC Comics published one of the finest comics ever created. Its sales did not set the world afire. In December 2014 you get the chance to put things right. In December 2014 DC Comics are publishing, for the first time ever, the collected TWILIGHT by Howard Victor Chaykin, José Luis García-López, Ken (Kenneth) Bruzenak, Steve Oliff and Richard Ory. I like it and I think you will too. (Now UPDATED to include quotes and acknowledgements.)

“No WANDERING OFF.” COMICS (and MOVIES)! Sometimes All Other Priorities Are Rescinded!

John Kane

Hello! You can blame this one on a conversation I had at a party. I say party but at my age that’s four men in a suburban living room with some nibbles and tinnies with the conversation always one slurred word away from movies. At that point it’s all about ALIEN from my end of the couch. And so is this huge block of stale drivel. It’s a bit wayward but if you stick with it I do mention comics eventually.

This week is on the smaller side of new comics, but that just makes it that much easier to highlight Kurt Busiek’s TOOTH AND CLAW that lands this week.

Why I Hate The Comics Industry, Part 8756412

Brian Hibbs

SENSATION COMICS #3 is a pretty great comic — it’s the kind of comic you could give to a 10 year old girl, or her 45 year old hipster mother equally.  It is kind of exactly the kind of WW comic that a whole swath of people really really want right now, because empowering but also really really cute.  I can absolutely sell this comic to a LOT of folks.

Except for the barrier they put in my way…. Come under the cut and I will explain….

Without any question the big, BIG, book this week is SAGA #24. There is some other interesting work though! It is an especially strong week for reprints, with classic STRAY BULLETS, the HOWARD THE DUCK omnibus being reprinted  and the second volume of Marvel’s MIRACLEMAN remasters.

Though there is much more beneath the cut if you want to check it out.
