Apologies for the lack of a post last week, Fly-Hards. We had some technical difficulties that prevented us from updating the site. For those of you who are interested, last week’s choice was Low by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini. This week brings us the return of the Superior Spider-Man, Spread continues to be a fun ride, and Jhonen Vasquez’s I Feel Sick saw a re-release. Instead of picking a new #1 this week, we’ve chosen the end of what turned out to be one of the best comics from the Big 2 in a long time. This week’s Super-Fly Comic of the Week is: Moon Knight #6.
We’re sad to see Ellis and Shalvey leave this title, as it’s easily been one of (if not THE) best cape and tights books from either of the Big 2. In six short issues: Ellis, Shalvey, and Bellaire have done a sensational job of writing what is ultimately a thesis statement on the character. The problem with so many Moon Knight series before this was that each writer handled wildly differently, so there never seemed to be a consistent vision for the character. That has been handled brilliantly here and Brian Wood and Co. have an excellent foundation from which they can build. If you’re like us and have been digging this series, Ellis,Shalvey, and Bellaire are reuniting over at Image for Injection, out in 2015.
Fly-Hards! This week we bring you something special indeed! Another strong batch of comics this week: Saga continues to blow everything out of the water, Zero Year came to a close over in Batman, and Afterlife with Archie is back with a vengeance! This week’s pick comes to us from across the pond, newly relaunched at Titan Comics this week’s Super-Fly Comic of the Week is: Doctor Who: New Adventures of the 10th Doctor!
Nick Abadzis and Elena Casagrande (Suicide Risk, Angel) bring back the fan-favorite 10th Doctor! In this newly relaunched series (now with Titan Comics) the Doctor is back on Earth (and for those of you keeping score at home this takes place AFTER Donna). Energetic and creative this first issue did not let us down. Of course there’s a new companion, but that would be spoilers dearie!
(Of course, it does not hurt that we are ON THE COVER!!!!!)
Welcome back Fly-Hards! Another Wednesday has come and gone and with it came another selection of awesome stuff to read! Umbral returned from hiatus, Wicked & Divine continues to be pop goodness, and Ms. Marvel continues to be the breakout hit from Marvel. This week’s comic is a real throwback, to a time when superhero comics were a bright and entertaining. This week’s selection for Super-Fly Comic of the Week is: Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con International San Diego #1!
Amanda Conner (Power Girl, Gatecrasher), Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex, Painkiller Jane), and 13artists unleash Harley upon the unsuspecting world of Comic-Con International San Diego! This issue is a fun romp and does a great job of breaking the 4th wall without being obnoxious. Nothing serious or groundbreaking here, but at least it will put a smile on that face!
Super-Fly Comics meets Doctor Who next week in the new Titan Comics Doctor Who series

As you can see above, the covers are pretty awesome AND the Super-Fly logo is prominently on the cover. Looks great, right?

If you can’t make it into the store to pick up the store exclusive, it would be prudent to mention that we do ship worldwide. So if you’re in Carbondale, IL, we can get you books with Doctor Who AND Super-Fly on the cover no problem. And if, for some reason, you don’t want the store variant but still want to read the issues on you mobile device, (you’ve got some nerve, mister….) you can STILL get it from us via our Comixology-power comic store. To make it easy, the links to both books are here and here.
For you visual types, Titan Comics has provided two trailers for both books. We have them right here:
Happy Independence Day fly-hards! We wouldn’t let a little thing like a national holiday stop us from bringing you another choice comic from this week’s offerings! This week was a large week for comics and if you’re a Guardians of the Galaxy fan this is the week for you! The Legendary Starlord launched, a new Guardians book started, East of West continued to be brilliant, and Daredevil took a very entertaining trip out west to San Francisco! With all the celebrating going on this weekend it only seemed right that the funnest book this week should take the top spot and that book is: Rocket Raccoon #1!
Skottie Young (Marvel’s Oz, Various Marvel covers) launches an all-new ongoing series featuring everyone’s favorite four legged, foul-mouthed woodland critter! Skottie Young’s art always pops with bright and fun energy and this first issue. Rocket a Guardian of the Galaxy, the savior of princesses, the lady killer himself is on the run and the Guardians aren’t around to help! Humorous, fun, and grin inducing this series seems to be exactly what everyone wanted it to be.
All-New Super-Fly Comic of the Week 2.75/2a is back again with another week’s worth of books to sort through. After back-to-back small week’s list was simply monstrous by comparison. Saga continues its streak of being the best book published, Trees #2 continued to be deeply interesting in that way only Ellis can be, and store favorite Midas Flesh saw its penultimate issue. Unfortunately for all of those comics, there was a book that has been hyped for months came in (not unlike a large metal ball used for demolition) and it lived up to the hype. That book is: Superman #32!
John Romita Jr. (Kick-Ass, Amazing Spider-Man) makes his DC debut to team up with Geoff Johns (Green Lantern, Infinite Crisis) to launch an all-new storyline for the Man of Steel! On another world a desperate couple save their child from certain doom as their world is destroyed by sending him to Earth and no we are not talking about Superman! Romita brings his trademark energy to every page and Johns seems to have been rejuvenated and refocused his efforts on this one. The hype train ruins so many books, but we’re glad to see a Superman book worthy of the title.
Just when you think you’re out, we pull you back in for another edition of Super-Fly Comic of the Week! We’ve been out for a few weeks, but worry not we are back with more great comics! This week saw the return of Sex Criminals after a month off, Gail Simone’s fabulous Red Sonja continued, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time is a blast. If you know us here at the store you already knew what this week’s pick was going to be. It’s a book we’ve been pretty hyped about since it was announced back at this year’s Image Expo. This week marked the launch of our Super-Fly Comic of the Week: The Wicked & The Divine #1!
Kieron Gillen (Young Avengers, Journey into Mystery) and Jamie McKelvie (Young Avengers, Phonogram) reunite for a brand new series from Image. 12 gods are reborn every 90 years as pop culture idols, but they’re gone after 2 short years. Laura wants nothing more in the world than to be like the gods she loves so much and Lucifer (or Luci, sporting a glam rock Bowie design) is more than happy to make that happen. Instantly engaging with bright vibrant visuals and excellent characters (Luci steals the show big time) this first issue lived up the hype and we cannot wait for more.
