The debut of a new Star Wars character comes in the form of a comic book. Most of us saw DJ in the Last Jedi movie in December, played by Benecio Del Toro. On a personal note, I walked out of the theater after the movie and spoke about how great that DJ character was. Now Star Wars The Last Jedi – DJ Most Wanted #1 arrives this Wednesday. Possible bigger things for DJ in the future, he’s a fantastic player within the Star Wars lure. This will be his first comic book appearance. Writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker. Artist Kev Walker.
As DC announces that Doomsday Clock will now go bi-monthly, Marvel’s Avengers still goes weekly for its third straight week of a 16 straight week turn. This week in Avengers #678, an Avenger dies? Let’s read and find out.

DC’s “New Age Heroes” continues this week. Damage #1, from a couple of weeks ago, was the first of many new heroes being introduced within their DC universe. These characters will not be from a separate universe, they’ll be put right in the middle of the existing time line. This is fantastic news because it gives the DCU a shot in the arm with new blood. This said, it’s quite possible some or none of these characters will catch on, but why not pick up the debut issues and check them out? Who knows, maybe one of these characters has a huge breakout on the popularity side, thus jacking up the speculative side. Safe bet is to buy all of the “New Age Heroes” as they release to cover your speculative bloodline. If nothing pops, so what? You were entertained with the words and pictures for 10 minutes of your life. Silencer #1 will be the offering this week from writer Dan Abnett and artists John Romita Jr./Sandra Hope. Anyone can check out a preview right HERE before you buy. Looks intense and we’re all in. Going back to Damage #1 a quick sec. If you haven’t seen already, 10 year Jason Katz started his own comic book review show. He reviews Damage #1, video in this post. Check it out. He’s awesome (proud papa speaking). 

Check out the origin of Clayface in Detective Comics Annual #1. Creators; James Tynion IV, Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira.
New DC sci-fi comic, Motherlands #1 (Vertigo) from Simon Spurrier and Rachael Stott.
Deathstroke chooses a new path. Maybe this “hero” thing isn’t working out so well for him. Let’s see where life takes him in Deathstroke Annual #1. Writer Christopher Priest, artists Bill Sienkiewicz and Denys Cowan.
A new Swamp Thing story paying tribute to Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson; Swamp Thing Winter Special #1. Writer Tom King and artist Jason Fabok lead the way with a new story in honor of two legends. An original story from Len Wein that never made it to print, makes it here with art from Kelley Jones. Loving everything about this comic, a must for any true comic fan.
DC works the hyper train with their new Flash Annual #1, stating it’s the start of the “biggest Flash story of 2018”. We’re buying in. Brought to you by Joshua Middleton and Christian Duce.

Quantum & Woody #2
Stretch Armstrong #1

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks; Indie comics do not always show up on Ebay right way. Please check back on a regular basis, some of the smaller print indie books usually list after new comic book release day or a few days after.

Spawn #281 gave readers their first look at the new character Black Mirror. While we promoted it as the first “full” appearance, it turned out to be a cameo (last page). This Wednesday we get “Hulk #181”, the first full appearance in Spawn #282. The new hero, Black Mirror, will debut in her own comic for Image Comics. So, let the crazy speculation begin? Who will pay $20 for that amped-up cosmic Ghost Rider comic? Maybe lots of cash for that meaningless variant that came out last week? Put your big boy pants on guys/gals. Invest wisely.
Anyone reading this old enough to remember the Hasbro toy Stretch Armstrong? That was the best toy ever. This rubbery doll type thing stretched out when you pulled on its limbs. It was technological advanced for its time. Hours of fun until the curiosity got the best of you. Had to see what was underneath that skin, stretch until it breaks! Anyway, IDW debuts a comic based on the coolest toy ever; Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters #1. Here’s a great little nugget, did you know that Stretch Armstrong first appeared in a comic in the New York Comic Con giveaway back in 2011’s Unit:E. Only 1000 of these were available. Probably down to 500 after everyone lost them, threw them out, ate their lunch on it, etc.
Valiant Entertainment’s hit comic Quantum & Woody hit their stride with their debut issue which included the most variant cover of all time. Check out the follow up this week; Quantum & Woody #2 with more “foil chase covers”. Writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Kano.
Chapterhouse Comics; Fantomah #1, Ray Fawkes and Soo Lee. Freelance #1; Andrew Wheeler and Juan Samu.
Brian Denham’s The Tremendous Trump World War T cover (Antarctic Press) and Joe Staton’s The Charlton Arrow #3 (AC Comics) both provide homage Marvel covers. They’re on point otherwise they wouldn’t be a mentioned here.
Chim Chum and the Portly Samurai #1 (American Mythology); Adrian Ropp.
Jack Hammer: Paper Hero (Action Lab); Brandon Barrows and Bill Blankenship.
