Im intending to post a weekly feature of comics I pick up each week given the list is ever expanding/evolving as I come across a wealth of talented writers and authors in this visually graphic medium. This first post is unique, largely due to this weeks pull list featuring two #1's, RED CITY from Image and the shared universe defining crossover event from Valiant in ARMOR HUNTERS.
RED CITY #1 (author: Daniel Corey, artist: Mark Dos Santos)
In the wake of a system-wide civil war, hard-nosed interplanetary investigator Cal Talmage is given a simple mission to find a missing ambassador’s daughter in Mars Central, a.k.a. Red City. The routine case quickly complicates as Cal finds himself in the midst of rival alien mobs, street vendettas, and political conspiracies. He struggles with personal demons as he discovers that another war is brewing, and the lives of an entire race hang in the balance.
BLOODSHOT & H.A.R.D CORPS #23 (author: Duffy Boudreau, artist: Al Barrionuevo)
The six men and women of H.A.R.D. Corps are all that stand between Bloodshot and everything he’s ever wanted – the total destruction of Project Rising Spirit. The clock is ticking down to zero, the stakes are life-or-death…and no one in this fight has anything left to lose.
ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) (author: Robert Venditi, artist: Doug Braithwaite
A relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the X-O Manowar armor and all like it – have finally found their last target. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.
