Welcome back to Critical Blast’s weekly look at what new comics you should check out each week.   Just a warning, I make these picks pretty much a week BEFORE I actually get to read any of these comics, so if something is a stinker, I take no blame on that.  Let's get to it!

Comics shipping this week


  • SILVER SURFER #14 – SILVER SURFER was actually my favorite comic when I started reading comics around 25 years ago.  Jim Starlin and Ron Lim were an amazing team.  The last few years, Dan Slott and Mike Allred have done an amazing job on Surfer too.  This issue marks the end of their run.  I am sad to see them go, but I will always cherish the amazing SILVER SURFER story they have told.
     
  • DC HOUSE OF HORROR #1- $10 is a pretty big ticket for this, but I love Halloween and Christmas themed comic stories, so I pretty much have to buy this one.  
     
  • ETERNITY #1 – The next chapter in the DIVINITY saga.  This time, Divinity is delving into alternate realities.  DIVINITY has been one of my favorite comic stories over the last few years, and I’m just glad to get more.
     
  • JUGHEAD THE HUNGER #1 – A new Archie horror book!  Hopefully this one will manage to stick to a release schedule, something AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and SUBRINA have failed to do over the years.
     
  • CAPTAIN MARVEL #125 – I will never learn my lesson.  Every time Carol Danvers gets a new creative team, I always check it out, and I am pretty much always disappointed.  But once again, I am really hopeful that someone can make Carol interesting again.
     
  • DETECTIVE COMICS #967 – Last issue, it was hinted that Superboy was being held in the same place as Tim Drake.  Hoping to get a real Young Justice reunion in this series!
