STORM #1

MARVEL COMICS
(W) Greg Pak (A/CA) Victor Ibanez
Thief. Goddess. Headmistress. Queen. The X-Man called STORM has always defied a single title. And her desire to better the world has never been limited to only her own kind. On a mission to foster goodwill and safeguard the mutant race's continued existence in her own way, Storm will travel the globe, confronting man and mutant, god and monster and everything inbetween. She will overthrow tyrants, quell tsunamis and strive to see her dream for the world realized. She is STORM, a hero like no other....and the skies will tremble at the sight of their namesake.

  THIS WEEKS HIGHLIGHTS
Notice me, I'm pretty...
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: San Diego Comic Con is this week and whenever there's a major convention the publishers kick their production schedule into overdrive in an effort to be the prettiest girl at the prom. How does that apply to you this week? This Wednesday there will be almost a third more first issues on the rack than there was last week, making your choices for what to buy and my choices for this weeks 1st Day Sale kind of difficult. So when you look at all those new titles this week remember each one has a hopeful creator or two sitting at a booth on the west coast hoping someone will notice them. Come on folks, ask the girl for a spin on the dance floor!

In addition to comics the 2014-15 Overstreet Price Guide ships this week as well as Magic's M15 Core Boosters and on top of it all, it's Previews week! Thank god SDCC only comes once a year!
 
 

   

THIS WEEK'S STANDINGS: Marvel slips from first to third as DC takes backthe top spot for the week and IDW again remains comfortably situated in 2nd place. Seven of DC's titles double up with the addition of Batman 75 Variant covers to help pad their lead. The only other significant change in the top 5 is Dark Horse's swapping with Dynamite to wind up in fifth place in this weeks standings. Apparently Dynamite will be keeping a low profile at San Diego this week.

HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK: As mentioned above it's prom week and Indy Comic first issues take center stage as creators and small  press publishes try to vie for the attention of the comic fan universe-hey, this is the week to do it. Titan rolls out their take on the Dr.Who franchise with  DOCTOR WHO 11TH #1 and DOCTOR WHO 10TH #1. A British publisher spinning tales of the seminal British character, it should be interesting. Speaking of Brits the Avengers (the other ones) return to Boom's schedule with STEED & MRS PEEL NEEDED #1. At IDW Walt Simonson takes another run at Norse mythology with RAGNAROK #1 which looks to be everything you think it may be (except for the public domain redhead replacing the copyrighted blonde guy). IDW also gives us a blast from the past with yet another TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #1 team up/fight. Image brings back Supreme with SUPREME BLUE ROSE #1 while Dark Horse brings back the Goon with GOON OCCASION OF REVENGE #1. Speaking of the Horse, the aborted mini-series GROO VS CONAN #1 finally sees the light of day this week as a cartooney barbarian faces off against a realistically rendered barbarian in what looks to be the weeks oddest clashes of styles. DC may top the list in shipping but their only new #1 saves a title copyright with STAR SPANGLED WAR STORIES GI ZOMBIE #1. Rounding out the week is a big helping of fresh cheesecake with DAMSELS IN EXCESS #1 from Aspen, VICTORIAN SECRET MIDWINTER SPECIAL ONE SHOT (really guys? it's July!) from Antarctic Press, OWLGIRLS #1 from Red Anvil and finally Action Lab's oddly popular ZOMBIE TRAMP ONGOING #1.
