Captain's Picks 1.31.2018


Marvel Pick of the Week:

Star Wars: DJ: Most Wanted #1

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Ben Blacker, Ben Acker (A) Kev Walker (CA) Jeff Dekal When STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI takes theaters in FORCE (get it?) this December, Star Wars fans will get a peek into some new dark corners of the Galaxy Far Away...and out of one of those corners scuttles DJ, the mysterious character played by Benecio Del Toro! Who is this mystery man, and what put him in the path of our Resistance heroes? Join Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Star Wars Join the Resistance, Star Wars: The Last Jedi - The Storms of Crait) and Kev Walker (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Darkhawk) as they reveal a day in DJ's life just before his appearance in the film! Rated T

What Red Shirt said:

This character left audiences fairly divided. I, for one, don't really think he added much to the film itself, but at the same time, I don't think that's a fault of the character or Del Toro. I found him intriguing and was definitely interested to see more of him in a more appropriate story.

DC Pick of the Week:

Flash Annual #1

$4.99

What Previews said:

(W) Joshua Williamson (A) Christian Duce (CA) Howard Porter "FLASH WAR" prelude! The biggest Flash story of 2018 starts here, with a special story starring the classic Wally West, who's conflicted over whether to let Iris West know he is alive-and he'll need the help of the Flash to figure out what to do! But when Magenta, Wally's old love, needs his help, the Flash returns home to Keystone City where he is confronted with violent memories of an unknown world...A major turning point for the Flash family that sets the path for earth shattering stories in 2018! RATED T

What Red Shirt said:

This is the first part of the highly anticipated Flash War crossover! I'm super psyched for this and if you dig the Flash, you should be, too. I can't wait to see how this will all unfold. I feel a need, a need for Speedsters!

Other Pick of the Week:

Motherlands #1 (of 6)

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Simon Spurrier (A) Rachael Stott (CA) Eric Canete In a crazed future where unhinged technologies and interconnected parallel Earths have given rise to a spectacular class of super-criminal, the most beloved celebrities aren't actors or rock stars, but the bounty hunters who traverse an exotic multiverse in search of impossible prey! But when the spotlight-shunning, strait-laced tracer known as Tab finds herself in an ultra-violent race for her greatest prize yet, she's forced to work with her greatest enemy, the only person capable of IDing him: her own elderly, overbearing and hypercritical mother, who was once the most fabulous and celebrated bounty hunter of them all. A sci-fi action comedy blacker than dragon s***, MOTHERLANDS is the dimension-hopping, criminal-blasting story of two extraordinary women written by Si Spurrier (SUICIDE SQUAD, The Spire) with art by Rachael Stott (Star Trek/Planet of the Apes, Sex Criminals). MATURE READERS

What Red Shirt said: What else can I say beside this book looks bada$$? If you're going to read a dark, gritty book, at least read one with a sense of humor.

Other Pick of the Week:

Hungry Ghosts #1 (of 4)

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Anthony Bourdain, Joel Rose (A) Alberto Ponticelli, Vanesa Del Ray (CA) Paul Pope On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles-where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings-and prays to survive the challenge. Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food. First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly. Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope.

What Red Shirt said: This is the first of the Berger Books imprint from Dark Horse. Karen Berger was a founding editor of the Vertigo label and helped shepherd such acclaimed books like Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, The Sandman, Fables, Hellblazer, The Invisibles, 100 Bullets, Preacher, V for Vendetta, and Y: The Last Man. What an amazing eye for talent!
