David: RunLoveKill #1

New series debuting this week from Image Comics by the creative team of Eric Canate and Jon Tsuei. RunLoveKill is the story of Rain Oshiro, a fugitive assassin, trying to escape from both her past and her current situation. Sounds interesting, so I’m going to check the first issue and go from there.

RUNLOVEKILL #1

Sought after by elements from her violent past, fugitive and assassin Rain Oshiro has just 24 hours to escape a barricaded city while trying to evade a military force determined to either capture or kill her.

Gaumer:  Tithe #1

This debut from Image Comics and writer Matt Hawkins is a modern-day take on Robin Hood with a wicked twist. Mega-Churches are being robbed by hackers and the cash is being given to those deemed more worthy. I love a good ish #1, and this one looks like it’s going to be great. It’s on the top of my stack this week.

Publisher: IMAGE COMICS
(Writer) Matt Hawkins (Artist/Cover) Rahsan Ekedal
A heist story unlike any before!  Mega-churches are being robbed for millions of dollars by a crusader hacker group known as Samaritan who is giving the money to causes they deem more worthy. This modern day “Robin Hood” is being pursued by two FBI agents who actually admire their quarry but want to stop the theft before it escalates.
Item Code: FEB150488
In Shops: 4/15/2015
SRP: $3.99

Adam: Archie vs. Predator #1

What? It’s a slow week for me with Convergence killing half my pull list and nothing I buy from Image coming out. Why not have some fun and try something new? At the very least, the rediculous concept is worth me looking into it.

ARCHIE VS PREDATOR #1 (OF 4)

Publisher: DARK HORSE COMICS
(Writer) Alex De Campi (Artist) Rich Koslowski (Cover) Fernando Ruiz
America’s favorite teen meets the galaxy’s fiercest hunter! Archie and friends hit Costa Rica for Spring Break, where party games and beach games are soon replaced by the Most Dangerous Game! What mysterious attraction does the gang hold for the trophy-collecting Predator, and will the kids even realize they’re in danger before it claims them all?
Item Code: FEB150015
In Shops: 4/15/2015
SRP: $3.99


Jules: Bloodshot Reborn #1

Jeff Lemire is a man of many talents. One of which is getting me to buy my first Bloodshot issue in years. Having picked up his The Valliant Mini series, he has me intrigued to pick this up. Last weeks All New Hawkeye also sorta cemented this decision. I’m gonna give it a whirl. I know Lemire can nail a character like Bloodshot and make him a worthwhile checkout so I’m gonna on a limb and giving this a shot. All puns intended.

BLOODSHOT REBORN #1
Publisher: VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC
(Writer) Jeff Lemire (Artist) Mico Suayan, Jeff Lemire (Cover) Juan Doe
From New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and red-hot rising star Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight), VALIANT NEXT delivers an all-new ongoing series for Valiant’s most unrelenting hero!

Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well. Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in selfimposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving headlong into the violence that nearly destroyed him.
Item Code: FEB151641
In Shops: 4/15/2015
SRP: $3.99
