Your Wednesday Wall Climb
Thought it was going to be a light week but I don’t think I have those anymore.
High Level #1—Francesco Mattina Cover
Picked this one up mainly for the cover which is pretty cool looking. The story is just starting out and seems a little slow so far. Looks like an alternate reality where the rich or well off live in High Level. The main character is some sort of scavenger who is possibly being sought after by the authorities for an unknown reason. I guess he feels the need to use foul language more than the rest of the folks in the book but whatever. I will give it a couple more issues and decide.
Get you name on the leader board with High Level.
This is one of my monthly reads, it has maintained a great story and if you are into movies like The Thing this is one of those books that will be right up your alley.
Time to evolve. Get some Evolution.
I like Scottie Young and his work. Middlewest is a fun adventure book and the mysteries continue in this one. During this issue, the boy and his fox friend continue searching for the Mystical Magdelana. Do they find her? Middlewest one has been well received and issue one is seeing some price hikes, so you should keep an eye on this one.
What others are saying about Middlewest.
Savage Dragon Vol 2 #242
I have been reading the dragon since it came out. In short, Malcolm and the Ant fight God. Yeah, you heard me.
Get Savage with the Dragon .
Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1—Karl Kerschl Cover
They say this is supposed to become a Netflix show, but we will see how that goes. This one is about a bounty hunter who flies an ice cream around the galaxy aided by his ten year old side kick.
Check the most wanted list with Sharkey the Bounty Hunter.
I love Monstress and if you are not reading it you should. Do not worry, I wont spoil any of the story here. As an added bonus to buying the series, I also love the Sana Takeda covers.
It is fantastic. Monstress.
Black Order #4—John Tyler Christopher Cover
I like the Black Order and in this issue we learn a little more about the Black Swan as they battle one of the Nova Centurions.
Study up on the Black Order.
Venom Vol 4 #11—John Tyler Christopher Cover
Eddie is in a cocoon of sorts made by Venom. Meanwhile, The Maker has retrieved him and is trying to get him out of there. Stunk inside Eddie and Venom have a conversation that has some shocking revelations.
Bring an antidote for this Venom.
Back Issue Beauties
A bit about this section
The Wednesday Wall Climb books are not intended to be a comprehensive list of what to buy / look for. Instead, these are books actually purchased on Wednesday. More importantly, the motivation behind buying the books. It is good to get a sense of why and not just what. Also, remember to look through the bins and back issues when ever you visit your Local Comic Store (LCS). Some of the Wednesday Wall Climb are not new releases, but still important books to buy. In some ways, even more important as they have had some time pass and the market gets a sense of a book. Stars are always being born and collapsing.
You will likely not be able to find every book you want in a week and you need to be okay with that. Take some time and think about what you are going after and try to target those books you like. Not every book pays off in value, and if you just buy everything without giving your own thought, you will quickly run out of money and be stuck with numerous books you are not interested in. And if you are broke, you at least want stuff you like to ease your pain. Just kidding. Be smart and buy wisely!
