Geeks’ Picks for New Comics: April 22nd, 2015

outright-geekery Logo NewNew Comics Wednesday is upon us again, and some of us here at Outright Geekery are running down the top pick on our comic stacks for this week. What are you looking forward to reading this week?


Taylor: Infinite Loop #1

The Kickstarter darling finally makes its way across the Atlantic! Following the adventure of a time-traveler who has to choose between maintaining the time line and keeping the love of her life, this off-the-wall indy title is too good a concept to pass up. I’m hoping that all the buzz around this title translates to a quality book. Guess I’ll find out soon.

INFINITE LOOP #1
Publisher: IDW PUBLISHING
(Writer) Pierrick Colinet (Artist/Cover) Elsa Charretier
A dynamically graphic, science-fictiony, poetical, paradoxical wunderkind of a sexy, time-traveling, adventure-packed comic series begins here!
Item Code: FEB150348
In Shops: 4/22/2015
SRP: $3.99


David: The Black Hood #3

The ending of the second issue lit a fuse, Officer Greg Hettinger was “framed” and arrested for drug possession. Now, Greg wants just one question answered, “Who?” Unfortunately, Officer Hettinger can’t get that answer, so he turns to the one person who can… the Black Hood. Now a new Black Hood goes after the criminal underworld to find out who set him up. I hope this slow burn will build the momentum to give me what I’ve been waiting for since the first issue.

THE BLACK HOOD #3
Publisher: ARCHIE COMIC PUBLICATIONS
(Writer) Duane Swierczynski (Artist) Michael Gaydos & Various (Cover) Francesco Francavilla
“The Bullet’s Kiss,” Part 3. The Black Hood is supposed to be dead. Shot, de-masked, autopsied, buried. So who’s running around town in a ratty black hood, declaring war on the underworld? The City of Philadelphia is electrified by the fleeting glimpses they see on social media – but both the cops and the drug gangs want him stopped at all costs. However, the new Black Hood may not have to be stopped; he’s coming unglued all on his own.
Item Code: FEB150956
In Shops: 4/22/2015
SRP: $3.99


Gaumer: Kaptara #1

Sex Criminals and Howard The Duck. If Kaptara is full of half of the wit that half-wit Chip Zdarsky puts into those series it’s going to be a gem of a comic. Plus, it’s a sci-fi, in-space story, and an Image #1. Yeah, I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.

KAPTARA #1
Publisher: IMAGE COMICS
(Writer) Chip Zdarsky (Artist/Cover) Kagan McLeod
A space expedition goes horribly wrong because if it didn’t there would be no story! Reluctant explorer Keith Kanga and his crew crash land on KAPTARA, a world filled with danger and weird danger and dangerous weirdos! And if he can’t survive then earth, the place where YOU live, is doomed!

Join CHIP ZDARSKY (Sex Criminals the Duck) and KAGAN McLEOD (Infinite Kung Fu) as they put the “fi” back into “sci-fi” and pretty much disregard the “sci” part in this epic story of punching and love!
Item Code: FEB150480
In Shops: 4/22/2015
SRP: $3.50
