Hope that week off was spent catching up and relaxing, because the first week of 2015 is back to business as usual. Plenty of new entries in our favorite monthlies as well as a few debuts.

DC has Action Comics #38 and Detective Comics #38, the first issue post-“Godhead” in Green Lantern #38, Aquaman and the Others #9, and Swamp Thing #38.

Marvel has a couple of spotlighted debuts as well as more “Spider-Verse” in Amazing Spider-Man #12, the penultimate All-New X-Factor #19, Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier #3, Hulk #10, Legendary Star-Lord #7, Operation S.I.N. #1, and the start of their weekly Wolverines #1.

Otherwise, Image has Deadly Class #10, God Hates Astronauts #5, Nailbiter #9, and Trees #8. IDW Publishing has Skylanders #4 and Edward Scissorhands #3. Archie Comics has Archie #663 and Sonic Boom #3.

Writer: Cullen Bunn, Artist: Jeremy Haun, $3.99

How can you continue to hunt the one werewolf that has eluded you if it can change bodies? How can you also continue to hunt when you learn startling new information from a reclusive expert? It’s an ages old battle happening in Wolf Moon featuring a werewolf hunter and a werewolf that can change bodies.

So, you’ve been stuck in another world in which you were a ravaging warrior since you were a child, and now you’re back on Earth with your parents? How does one adjust? Well, Birthright #4….how does one adjust?

Fade Out #4 (Image)

Writer: Ed Brubaker, Artist: Sean Phillips + Elizabeth Breitweiser, $3.50
Writer: Ed Brubaker, Artist: Sean Phillips + Elizabeth Breitweiser, $3.50

Worth the wait! Ed Brubaker’s crime noir takes readers into a flashback to the war in order to peel back the curtain a little more for Charlie. Plus there is plenty of extra content packed into each issue.

Ant-Man #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Nick Spencer, Artist: Ramon Rosanas, $3.99
Writer: Nick Spencer, Artist: Ramon Rosanas, $3.99

Well, since the movie is coming up this summer, naturally Marvel would burn the torch for Ant-Man in their monthly books. Last seen in the pages of FF, Scott Lang gets a call from the Superior Iron Man, so who knows what that means! Also features a shrinking variant cover that apparently has Ant-Man at a different size on each and every cover, so each copy is unique.

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Ryan North, Artist: Erica Henderson, $3.99
Writer: Ryan North, Artist: Erica Henderson, $3.99

The Superior Foes of Spider-Man might be gone (even though the writer is penning the aforementioned Ant-Man), but brand new (All-New?) from Marvel is the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! A comic featuring lots of fun and adventure, plus who else has gone toe-to-toe with Wolverine, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, and Thanos?

“Making you a better geek, one post at a time!”
