Fortunately, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm was there to witness, and to guide Hellboy to become the greatest paranormal detective in the world.  But Bruttenholm wasn’t the only witness to Hellboy’s arrival. A visitor was there, sent to kill the Beast that had been prophesied to kill us all. What the visitor saw, and why he stayed his hand, leads to the most mysterious Hellboy spinoff yet …

DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #3 - With the help of an unlikely ally, Ninjak must help Divinity remember the previous reality and somehow undo the Stalinverse. However, on the verge of being discovered, will be able to accomplish his mission and not get complete obliterated by the former Valiant heroes? Thankfully, this Ninjak isn’t nearly as much of a jobber, so there’s certainly a chance!
DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN & THE BATTLE FOR NEW STALINGRAD - The origin of Stalinverse Shadowman! Jack Boniface makes his final stand in New York against the Soviets with the help of the Deadside. Will this Shadowman story not absolutely suck? Ok, in fairness, the 4001 AD story was really good, but it didn’t have Jack. Jack has pretty much been cursed to shitty stories so far. Why do you suck so bad, Jack?
FAITH #8 - Zelda versus Faith! Seriously, this solicit is super vague. Like, an enemy from Faith’s past or something comes back for revenge, but Faith has only been doing the superhero gig for like 12 issues so far and the covers show a woman who looks like Zelda. The issue promises to be “shocking”! I’m not so sure...

HARBINGER: RENEGADE #4 - The Renegades got bodied last issue by these new psiots and they have a specific interest in Kris. Sounds like they capture Faith and the others have to mount an offensive to rescue her. Though, more importantly, they have some power they can use against Peter, which at this point is just insane. Honestly, I don’t even need to know what the issue is about, just give me the damn thing. I need this book double-shipped, it’s so good.
GENERATION ZERO #7 - So, this book turned out to be more inspired by Doom Patrol than anyone could have possibly expected. Welcome to the Heroscape! Generation Zero enters the surreal realm of the Heroscape, a plane where everyone’s vision of themselves in the world takes shape and people see themselves as the “heroes” of their own lives. With so little control over the outcome, will Gen Zero be able to investigate the mysterious tower of Rook, Michigan? Or will they be killed in the process? Actually, that’s a false threat, I have no idea if death is possible in the Heroscape…
NINJAK #24 - The Shadow Seven reunited! With the revelation that Ninjak himself is the last member of the Shadow Seven, Colin must make a decision - to rip the rest of the members’ heads off, for keeps this time, or begrudgingly join forces with them to defeat an even bigger evil: Master Darque. Spoiler: I think the Seven Blades of Master Darque are referring to how many swords Ninjak’s going to put into the guy.

Animosity #6 By Bennett, Latorre (Feb 22nd) - When Jesse is abducted by humans, Sandor, her faithful and protective Bloodhound, will cut a swath of blood and bone through everything that stands in his path to find and rescue his beloved friend
Archie #17 By Waid, Eisma (Feb 15th) - Cheryl Blossom's unleashed on Riverdale, creating chaos and tumult at her whim! Only Veronica can stop her - but how will she get back from her Swiss boarding school in time to save her friends?
Josie & The Pussycats #4 By Bennett, Deordio (Feb 1st) - The Pussycats' careers really start to take off as they head off to Rome for glitz and glamour! But what happens when a gang of diamond thieves bursts onto the scene? And will Josie and Alan M's dynamic sparkle under the heat and pressure of life on the road? Or will Josie's hard-as-diamonds ambition cut them all to ribbons?

Judge Dredd Annual #1 By Farinas, Freitas, McDaid, Tunica (Feb 22nd) - It has been 10 years since the events of Mega-City Zero, and Judge Dredd continues his mission to restore order to a lawless land. But what has been happening on Luna-1 and in Mega-City Two, and how might that affect Dredd's sworn duty? 
Rom #8 By Ryall, Gage, Villanelli (Feb 22nd) - Other Space Knights have arrived on Earth... two warriors with ties to ROM's past and who are determined to ensure that the DIRE WRAITHS have no future... even if it means destroying the planet along with them!
TMNT #67 By Waltz,Eastman, Santolouco (Feb 22nd) - The government's hunt for mutants begins in earnest and their unconventional tactics will see the TMNT hounded like never before! No mutant is safe!

Whether you read webcomics, ongoings, or even if you just stick to trades-- everyone is welcome to post their thoughts here. Unless you are a Valiant fan, if you are a Valiant fan please find somewhere else to talk about their comics, thank you for understanding.

Members in ComicsGAF are expected to follow the NeoGAF TOS just like everyone else. I know it can be hard, but try and be excellent to your fellow members guys (Except Zombine, he deserves the shit he gets).

We've been having some talk of spoilers a lot lately, so I figured it's a good idea to have a section for it.
-If you must post a spoilery panel or a page from a comic (recent or otherwise), please link to them with a proper spoiler warning.
-Please at least allow one week before posting unmarked spoilers.
-Think about whether or not you would have liked to have a moment spoiled on you before reading it. Use discretion when posting spoilers. You know people love Saga/Deadly Class try not to openly post huge spoilers even if they are months old. Link to them and tag them properly.
-Announcements/Solicitations are not spoiler worthy, no need to tag
- Don't spoiler tag images, it doesn't work on mobile so its not reliable.


Wait tomorrow is February...

Thanks to Messi and only Messi for single handedly working on this amazing OT



Ordered the Realm of Kings (WoK Aftermath) Omnibus. Was debating it because I already have half of the contents in trades and the rest in floppies but these are nice reference books to loan out to friends. Also was surprised to see it looks like the War of Kings Omnibus is already sold out on IST. Not sure these books will see reprints.
Been on a comic hiatus while catching up on books and playing The Witcher 3. Invincible is calling my name, though. GOAT series.

Trump is the worst. Everything is a mess. Stay strong, Comics GAF.


New Lady Killer? All I need, though I will be looking out for TPB of the hanna barbara books at some point.
New Lady Killer? All I need, though I will be looking out for TPB of the hanna barbara books at some point.

The only HB book I haven't tried yet is Scooby Apocalypse, the first tpb of which comes out this week. The rest I can say are all very good.


So is Invincible actually ending? I think I read through about 100 or so and need to catch up. I loved it, however, and look forward to getting caught up.


read 59 issues for this month. got kinda lazy the past 2 weeks. couldn't even finish my marvel issues.
