Boom Studios is another publisher outside of the big two that I tend to keep an eye on with my monthly previews scan and the latest from Mike Carey caught my eye thanks to that pretty sharp cover from Tommy Lee Edwards…..I added it to my list (along with the next few issues) and thought I’d give it a go.

With Image Comics seemingly having the ability to produce some of the most impressive and consistent titles in recent years, it’s no wonder that the pull-list has seen a fair share of their titles being added and the latest of these is Ten Grand.

A highlight of doing a Blog like Comics Anonymous is that we get to pickup titles from the indy/self-published scene in the UK with ease and Halcyon & Tenderfoot from Daniel Clifford & Lee Robinson is a perfect example of that.

The much talked about, much-hyped team-up of Mark Millar & Frank Quitely hits with #1 of this latest title from Image. Millar, Quitely AND Image – sounds like a winner before we open that issue but does the title deliver what we’d expect??

Issue #5 of the so far impressive Lou Scannon arrived on my doorstep a few weeks back and somehow it seemed to slip through my “next-to-read” pile as I drowned in an influx of new issues. Wall-to-wall “must-reads” could stand in the way no longer as the intrigue of the creative teams Facebook comments “It’s very different” aimed in my direction had me wary of what to expect.

What do you get if you take a group of Rednecks and an Army Sergeant and face them off against an army of Aliens?…….that’s right…..you get Clay County. While that may not sound like much this is another hidden gem among Arcana’s releases.

The Guardians of the Galaxy title is set to hit next month with #1 and it felt strange that Marvel would bring us a #0.1 (daft numbering again it seems) but this sets things up with an origin tale with a difference.

With a great opening start in those first 3-issues (reviewed here) we see Dan Slott continue to mess with Spidey’s life, head AND relationships…….and I’m loving it

After picking up #1 (reviewed here) and enjoying this video game tie-in it was almost a given that I would get #2 to see how things went – was #1 a fluke or was this really a hidden gem from DC?
