The Comic Lounge's Picks of the Week (11/6)

Guys!!!! There are SOOOOO many books coming out this week. Lots of new series. A couple ending. Let us help you decide where to spend that hard earned cash. We have a lot of picks for you guys to check out. Hope you enjoy!!!



The conclusion to "The Comic You Always Wanted" is here. This has been one of the most energetic and fun comic over the last few months and you won't want to miss this exciting conclusion.

Here's the solicit:

It's the final issue of The Comic You Always Wanted, and it turns out that there is someone left to fight. From Aubrey Sitterson (The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling, G.I. Joe) & Fico Ossio (Spider-Man, Revolution), the year's hottest new book reaches its explosive, action-packed conclusion, with its heroes squaring off against a massive threat from their past, a monster they thought long vanquished. It's "The Return of Bruton!" and it's the biggest, most berserk issue-length brawl you've ever seen committed to the comics page.


Think Red Sonja mashed up with an aging Clint Eastwood and you have the main character. This book was one hell of a pleasant surprise. and I think is definitely worth checking out if your a fan of Red Sonja or any story about an aging warrior.

Here's the solicit:

The Sword Saviour and Champion of Men once known as BLOODY BLISS is now nothing more than a reclusive old CRONE. Does she have the strength to answer the call for one last adventure? Only Dennis Culver (Burnouts, E is for Extinction) and Justin Greenwood (Stumptown, The Last Siege) know for sure in this story that is equal parts Unforgiven and Xena: Warrior Princess.


This has been one of my favorite books from DC, I mean obviously since it has all my favorite characters in it (Bart, Tim, Cassie, & Connor), and now they're adding Naomi????

This is gonna be a great one guys. If you are a fan of NAOMI but haven't checked out YOUNG JUSTICE, now is the time.

Here's the solicit:

Welcome, Naomi! Wonder Comics' brightest shining star comes to Young Justice! She's ready to join this team of young heroes who have seen it all-and you'll want to be here to watch the sparks fly for the very first time. All this, plus the true story of Jinny Hex.


This is the book that had big effect on me. Being a huge Kirby fan, this book was both informative and emotional. I highly recommend this book to all you Kirby fans. If you're LCS doesn't carry the book. Then you can always buy it directly from the publisher

Trust me this is an unbelievable book that I think all comic fans will enjoy.

Here's the solicit:

Eisner nominated James Romberger (7 Miles A Second, Post York) brings a short comic story, "The Oven," that melds two battles fought in different eras by the great cartoonist Jack Kirby, the most prolific American comic book creator of the 20th century. The first battle: his cancer diagnosis serves as a springboard for the other battle: one of his most harrowing experiences during World War II. "The Real Thing," an accompanying essay by elaborates on those issues in relation to Kirby's biography. For Real is a celebration and a nuanced look at one of America's greatest cartoonists! A must for Kirby Fans!



A little secret for any Marvel staff that might be reading this Pick of the Week blurb. If you put Quentin Quire on any new X-Men book’s team, you will have my money. It’s time for that Krakoan CIA to put in the work and this roster is looking pretty interesting. This was the second most anticipated title from the Dawn of X’s first wave. I have been very curious to see the specific capacity and scenarios to which this team operates and how the members will interact with one another.

Here's the solicit:

THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN! X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We're not there...yet.


The future is here! The future is now! This is the DC book I’ve been waiting for the longest for. It’s been so long since DC Rebirth first teased us with the return of the Legion of Super-Heroes. The funny thing about the future though, is it’s not set in stone and where the heroes of the 30th century may not be taking the galactic stage, Bendis has been building up for the introduction since his DC debut for the Legionnaires of the 31st!  Let’s see what the future has in store.

Here's the solicit:

Welcome to the 31st century! Inspired by the acts of and lessons learned from the greatest heroes of all time, the Legion of Super-Heroes have gathered together to stop a galaxy from repeating its past mistakes. The greatest lineup of heroes in comic book history returns with new, fresh, and reader-friendly stories! Eisner Award-winning writer Brian Michael Bendis reteams with master artist Ryan Sook (Action Comics) for one of the most ambitious mainstream comic books ever created! Why have the Legion of Super-Heroes broken the cardinal rule of the United Planets and inducted Jon Kent, a.k.a. Superboy, into the Legion? What are they hiding? And what does it have to do with Aquaman's long-lost trident?



Charles Soule. Scott Snyder. Giuseppe Camuncoli. Image Comics. Everything about Undiscovered Country screams TALENT. I've been waiting for this A-game book for months. It's going to be a smart, relevant must read!

Here's the solicit:

SERIES PREMIERE! This November, New York Times bestselling writers SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, A.D.: AFTER DEATH) and CHARLES SOULE (CURSE WORDS, the forthcoming novel Anyone) will team up with artists GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI (The Amazing Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Hellblazer) and DANIELE ORLANDINI (Darth Vader) and 2019 Eisner Award-winning colorist MATT WILSON (THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE, PAPER GIRLS) to embark on an epic adventure in the brand-new ongoing series, UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY! In this special oversized first issue, readers will journey into the near future, and an unknown nation that was once the United States of America-a land that's become shrouded in mystery after walling itself off from the rest of the world without explanation over thirty years ago. When a team seeking a cure for a global pandemic breaches U.S. borders, they quickly find themselves in a struggle to survive this strange and deadly lost continent!


Ed Brisson and Jonathan Hickman teaming up for New Mutants?? Take my money. This has been my most anticipated X-Men book aside from the main title. Throw in some sweet Rod Reis art and get ready for the Dawn of X!

Here's the solicit:

THE NEW GENERATION CLAIMS THE DAWN! The classic New Mutants (Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik, and Cypher) get together with a few new friends (Chamber, Mondo) to seek out their missing member and share the good news... a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!


Honestly-- Matt Fraction's name on a trilogy of Image graphic novels was enough to get me to pre-order this book a while ago. Fraction and artist Elsa Charretier are going to give you a story of three women dealing with underground crime, violence and mystery.

This creative team and Image didn't need to try hard to sell me on NOVEMBER.

Here's the solicit:

In this new sequence of three graphic novellas by MATT FRACTION and ELSA CHARRETIER with colors by MATT HOLLINGSWORTH and exquisitely-crafted lettering by cartoonist KURT ANKENY, NOVEMBER follows the lives of three women intersecting in a dark criminal underground. As fire and violence tears through their city on a single day and night, they discover their lives are bound together by a mysterious man that seems to be the cause of it all. One night. One city. Three women. NOVEMBER.



After that shocking conclusion in the last issue, WHAT THE HECK IS GOING TO HAPPEN?!?!?!

Matt is in it deep battling and rooting out the ever growing corruption in the NYPD and on top of all that, Elektra returns to fulfill her promise (threat??) of becoming his new mentor and rebuilding the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen from the ground up. Wilson Fisk in his quest for legitimate power in the light, has now found himself in a horrifying predicament done by his own hand (literally) and is in a panic. Like i said … WHAT THE @#$% IS GOING TO HAPPEN?!?!?!

Zdarsky had been taking us on a deep, wild, riveting, and twisted ride, and y’all should check it out, and as always pick it up at your local comic book shop!!!!

Here's the solicit:

• After the epic conclusion to NO DEVILS, ONLY GOD, Matt Murdock has no choice but to investigate the corruption in New York's police force further. •  And Wilson Fisk may be the Kingpin of Crime no more, but he still has blood on his hands...



EVERYTHING Is the perfect weird and spooky and awesome thing to round out the Halloween season and leave you with questions and chills all fall 

Here's the solicit:

After nearly dying, Eberhard returns to work . . . but is he getting better, or worse? Meanwhile, Shirley goes to extreme lengths in search of a new friend, and Lori's own health takes a turn-something that will send her even deeper into the enigmatic power of Everything.

B.B. FREE #1

BB Free looks like the post apocalypse version of Steven Universe and Lisa Frank that I never knew I wanted and I can’t wait to get my paws on it.

Here's the solicit:

* b.b. free broadcasts her underground radio show from her remote swamp community, and she has no idea she's actually the chosen one. 

* It's been over a hundred years since the Plague That Ate Greed wiped out half the population, and it's the only world that b.b. has ever known. But when b.b. rebels against her overbearing father, she realizes that everything she believes in could be a lie. 

* On the run from her own family, b.b. will learn the truth about the world she lives in, and about the power she never knew she had. 

* Writer Gabby Rivera and debuting artist Royal Dunlap present an adventure for fans of Blackbird and "mysterious destiny" heroic fiction like Naomi about finding your family when the whole world is against you.


SPAWN #302

I’m just gonna shoot into the dark here and give you my assumption on what’s gonna happen next (although I could be absolutely wrong): SPAWN WARS. A crap ton of multi-generational Hellspawns all in one comic book. Yeah, I’m pretty hyped for this one.

Here’s the Solicit:

“HELL HUNT,” Part One! In the aftermath of the record-setting SPAWN #300 and #301, new heroes—The Reaper and Jessica Priest: She-Spawn—join Spawn’s war against the forces of Heaven and Hell. The next evolution in the mythology and power of the Hellspawn begins NOW. PLUS: The return of MEDIEVAL SPAWN! THE HUNT IS ON.

DIE #9

Okay, look. If you’ve ever played any RPG in any form, you know the words “split the party” is almost always the sign of a good time.

Here’s the Solicit:

"SPLIT THE PARTY," Part Four-Forget escaping DIE. You can't do that without escaping the prison, with your worst enemy and the first woman who ever gazed upon this plane with human eyes.
