Gideon Falls #1 by Lemire and Sorrentino | Image Comics | 1st Issue Fetish

Gideon Falls #1 | By: Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino & Dave Stewart | Published: March 7, 2018 by Image Comics | From the Image Comics solicitation: A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of OLD MAN LOGAN and GREEN ARROW! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith. Writer Jeff Lemire and illustrator Andrea Sorrentino have reunited for a tour de force of a comic series that promises to deliver plenty of suspense and psychological horror.

1st Issue Fetish – The Terrifics #1 by Reis and Lemire (DC Comics)

The Terrifics #1 | By: Ivan Reis and Jeff Lemire | Published: Feb 28, 2018 by DC Comics | Spinning out of DC Comics’ DARK NIGHTS: METAL event, as well as the publisher’s THE NEW AGE OF HEROES initiative (which is the launching pad for a number of all-new series featuring all-new characters or traditionally underused characters) comes THE TERRIFICS. This new series stars the super-genius Mr. Terrific, the now Nth-metallic Metamorpho, the funny and ever-elastic Plastic Man, and the intangible Phantom Girl. They are a newly-formed team of unlikely allies and must rely on one another to make their way back home. Bound together by fate — literally by a tragic accident — and united by the spirit of exploration and hope for tomorrow. A startling revelation on their return trip brings them face-to-face with a new mystery. What is that mystery? Well, let’s just say the last page has a cameo by a certain Doc Savage-inspired action hero who’s lost somewhere in the known/unknown universe. This first issue is a throw-you-in-the-middle-of-it, straight-ahead comic …

The Haul, Y’all – 2/28/2018

#WednesdayWarrior #NCBD #FetishFix #TheHaul Over the last few months I had downgraded my Wednesday Warrior status to more of a monthly endeavor due to a focus on reading novels (because, y’know, there’s only so many hours a fella can devote to his favorite activity as a bookworm). At any rate, here is the complete haul for the month of February. ~ 1st Issue Fetish Selections: The Terrifics #1, Hit-Girl #1, Rough Riders: Ride or Die #1, Ice Cream Man #1 (also #2), and Abbott #1 (all the store’s copies of #2 were damaged in transit, unfortunately). ~ Fetish Faves: Saga #49, Kill or Be Killed #16, Lazarus: X+66 #6, Lazarus Sourcebook #3: Vassalovka, Redneck #10. ~ Other Haul Regulars: The Defenders #10, Jessica Jones #17, Savage Dragon #231, Extremity #11 and Smoke Town #6.
