Looking for something new to read? Here we focus on the new #1’s hitting the New Comic Book Day store shelves this week. This week’s picks are:
Archie Comics, $3.99
Set in the year of their publication “birth”, Archie 1941 takes a look at what the characters might have been like in a real-world American history setting. World War II is looming and the boys of Riverdale are very close to enlistment age. How does this time in history change each of the characters, for better and for worse. By Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn and Kelly Fitzpatrick.
Dark Horse, $3.99
In the not to distant future...MST3K gets a comic book! The new Mads have a new invention to torture Jonah, Crow and Tom Servo. But instead of making them watch cheesy movies, it sucks them into Son of TV’s Frank’s comic book collection. Now the trio are in the stories themselves, using their wit and one-liners to get themselves out of the story. By show co-creator Joel Hodgson with Harold Buchholz, Matt McGinnis, Mary Robinson, Seth Robinson, Sharyl Volpe, Mike Manley and Wes Dzioba
Image Comics, $3.99
