Marvel will wrap things up in Infinity Countdown #5. The fun begins again with Marvel’s Infinity Wars thereafter. Never a dull moment within the Marvel Universe and the new Infinity Wars storyline will bring on a new player, possibly reincarnated character. The big ‘get’ in this series will be this. Who is this newbie? What role will they play? Once fans found out, they’ll go bananas and the speculators will feast among themselves. Gerry Duggan and Mike Deodato Jr. will head the new Infinity Wars project. These two creators will certainly bring it as they always do, so expect a solid series.
Speaking of a good/solid comic, Life of Captain Marvel #1 will be just that. Written by Margaret Stohl and art from Carlos Pacheco. This story will tell of the ‘Definitive Origin of Captain Marvel’. Maybe this is a precursor to the film in 2019? Maybe not, who cares really? This comic will undoubtable have fans clamoring for it, causing the trend to cycle through the social media realms as a comic to read. Although Carol Danvers is a Boston Red Sox fan (New York Yankees fan here), we’ll give her a pass regarding this portion of her origin, because one of the best persons we know Bob Heske (filmmaker/writer) is a Sox fan and he rocks. So, we here at Trending Pop Culture recommend this comic to all collectors….and Mr. Bob Heske.
One thing leads to another (Good song! Did I just show my age?) this week. Writers Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson along with artist German Peralta have been telling the story of Cable’s secret origin within the pages of his self-titled book. This week, in Cable #159, Cable’s ‘dark secret is revealed’ in ‘Past Fears: Part 5. What does this mean? Well, we’ll all have to read it and find out!
79 years; first appearance of Batman. 77 years; first appearance of Archie. 79+77= 156. That’s a whole lotta years there. Well, this Wednesday, Batman will team with Archie for the very first time in Archie Meets Batman 66 #1. This is incredible, isn’t it?
Another team-up occurring this coming Wednesday has no comparison ability in the least but is still fun nonetheless. Injustice vs The Masters Of The Universe #1. Writer Tim Seeley and artist Freddie Williams II.

Trending Pop Culture 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.
IDW Publishing starts up a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic this week. Writer Matthew Manning and Chad Thomas bring comic fans Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #0. For the record, zero issues are silly. Just don’t put a number on it at all. Anyway, this series is based on the new fall animated series arriving this fall. We think. Maybe it’s based on a new TMNT comic series this fall? Either way, it’s new TMNT stories, so we’re all in. Also from IDW, Euthanauts #1; Creators Tini Howard and Nick Robles.
Clankillers #1 from Aftershock Comics is sold out. Creators Sean Lewis and Antonio Fuso.
Twelve Devils Dancing #1 (Danger Zone) is sold out. Creators Erica Schultz and Dave Acosta.
Keenspot Entertainment has sold out across the board (variants and all) of its offering this Wednesday; Barry Steakfries #1. Based off the video game Jetpack Joyride. Creators Chris Crosby, Mike Rosenburg and Remy Eisu Mokhtar.
Dead Life #1 from Titan Comics is sold out; Jean-Charles Gaudin and Joan Urgell Mamba.
If you’re a fan or a by-product from the 1980’s, or if you’re a fan of the Godfather movies/mob movies, or you recall the days of old visiting the mall with your friends or you’re just a fan of some great comic book reading, you’ll have to pick up The Mall #1 from Scout Comics. Writers James Haick III and Don Handfield, along with artist Rafael Loureiro bring this 80’s vibe, intrigue, mob, money, crime filled John Hughes on steroids comic to life. Yes, it’ll probably sell out, and yes, it’ll probably be made into a film one day too.

Rise of TMNT #1
Euthanauts #1

Back when the seeds of the late great website InvestComics were being implanted inside the mind of Jay Katz, his father introduced a thick book with lots of information and very small text writing. Jay’s dad used to use a magnified glass thingy to literally look over the ‘bible of comics’ as he called it. This book was called ‘The Overstreet Price Guide’. Here we stand now on the 48th Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide release this Wednesday. Although some pricing is a bit skewed due to the rampant pace the speculators partake these days, it’s an incredible tool regardless. Especially on the Golden/Silver Age side…..where the big boys play. Sorry Cosmic Ghost Rider, step aside.
