Wednesday Comics on Thursday - March 17, 2011

It was a great comics week for me, but I'm only going to share a couple of the many comics I picked up.

I'm going to start of with Issue 5 of the Warlord of Mars from Dynamite Entertainment. Issue 5 has 7 covers: 4 regular covers and 3 Retailer Incentive (RI) covers.

Cover A - Joe Jusko (50%)

Cover B - Lucio Parrillo (50%)

Cover C - Patrick Berkenkotter (1-in-10)

Cover D - Stephen Sadowski (1-in-15)

"Martian Red" RI Cover - Stephen Sadowski

"Black & White Art" Retailer Incentive Cover - Joe Jusko
"Virgin Art" Retailer Incentive Cover - Lucio Parrillo

John Carter is falling for Dejah Thoris. They are being held captive by the Green Men of Mars. Carter does not understand Martian tradition and insults Dejah. A Green Man challenges Carter. Dejah thinks that Carter has been killed.

From Moonstone Comics... Kolchak: The Night Stalker Files, Issue 2. I love Kolchak. I adore the TV Show and the TV movies.

Cover A - Woodrow Hinton III (75%)

Cover B - Jaime Martinez (25%)

Cover C: Dave Ulanski & Ken Wolak (less than 10%)
Things are looking up for night stalking reporter Carl Kolchak - he's got a new job in sunny South Florida with a fat paycheck and an editor who loves him. But deep in the heart of the Everglades, something inhuman is on the prowl; a terrifying creature with a taste for human flesh. Moonstone

I find that I gravitate toward comics that are somehow related to books or shows I loved from years ago.  These comics are special to me. What pulls you to a particular comic?


  1. Thank you for the post. Those covers look amazing. I haven't been keeping up with my comics as I should, but I definitely want to look into these. Thanks hon :)

  2. You're welcome! I probably get too many comics. :)
