Jan 17, 2018
Every Wednesday is New Comic Book Day (#NCBD) in comic book shops, where new comics release hit the shelves of comic book shops for eager fans to pick up and purchase.
We've highlighted five comics that are perfect recommendations for any Halloween ComicFest fan looking to get into spookier, Halloween-like comics!
In this week's list, for books coming out 1/17/18, there's definitely something for everyone: Milo tangles with Kaiju in Wrapped Up, Richard Corben's Shadows On The Grave gets collected, there's a flavor for everyone's misery in the Ice Cream Man, and more!
Wrapped Up #4
(W) Dave Scheidt (A) Sean Dove (A/CA) Scoot McMahon
Milo's class is taking a field trip, and his stepsister Jill is way too cool, teen, and goth to be a chaperone. But the trip gets a whole lot more exciting when they hear the rumblings of a giant, hungry monster-a kaiju! It's up to Milo and Jill to save a whole bus full of kids from certain doom! Wrapped Up #4 features a backup story drawn by Kelsey Wroten.
Shadows On The Grave HC
(W) Richard Corben (A/CA) Richard Corben
Richard Corben follows up 2014's Spirits of the Dead with a new collection of original short stories, ranging from gothic tales worthy of Poe, to Twilight Zone-style encounters with the weird, to a full-length fantasy epic featuring a barbarian reminiscent of Corben's most notorious creation, Den, immortalized in the 1981 animated film Heavy Metal. Collects Shadows on the Grave #1-#8.
Ice Cream Man #1
(W) W. Maxwell Prince (A/CA) Martin Morazzo
Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy...there's a flavor for everyone's misery.
ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate "one-shot" tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers-lickety split!-can change the course of your life forever.
Written by W. MAXWELL PRINCE (ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY), with art by MARTÍN MORAZZO (GREAT PACIFIC) and CHRIS O'HALLORAN (GENERATION GONE).
