Comics | This Week’s New & Noteworthy | December 23rd


The comics preview is all you need to find out which new titles are hitting comic store shelves this week.

Whether you’re a regular reader looking for something new or a newcomer to comics, I give you my top three picks – and a round-up of every new comic in stores this week. Pick out your favourites and let us know what makes your pull list in the comments section.


Last Gang In Town #1

Forget what you know of England, of the “Land of Hope and Glory.” Instead, try damp and depressing, and embrace this miserable island for what it is. Our story kicks off in 1976: the country coming apart at its flared corduroy seams, a decade after the Great Train Robbery, when British crime has gone decidedly soft in the middle.

Time for a new generation of criminals to rise: a band of snotty-nosed heroes driven by destiny and cheap cider, who will strike fear back into the establishment, put art back into crime and crime back into art, and pull off what will become known as the heist of the century.

Vertigo Comics


The Rocketeer At War! #1

Europe, 1942–the world is at war! As the Allies battle against the Axis, able bodied men everywhere enlist in the war effort, including Cliff Secord. Secord, also known as The Rocketeer, has been thrust full throttle into the heat of battle, and–with or without his jet pack–he will depend on his wits and daring if he is to survive!

IDW Publishing


Wakfu #1

The wonderful world of Wakfu… in comics! For the first time, the colourful, wacky world of the hit series Wakfu is to be available in comics. In this first issue, the intrepid hero-in-the-making Yugo and his friends stumble across a mysterious amusement park. While the band explore, it seems that one of their number has caught the eye of the secretive and lonely Shak Shaka!
