New comic book releases for the week of 1/4/12. Well, we’ve made it to the start of another New Year! Now would be a great time to dive into that new title that you’ve been thinking about picking up and this weeks list has some really great ones to follow. I have my eye on DC Comics: Animal Man #5 (sharp writing by Jeff Lemire and chilling art from Travel Foreman) which weaves a great blend of horror and capes story telling, and Dynamite Entertainment‘s: Flash Gordon Zeitgeist #2 (written by Eric Trautmann and evocative art from Daniel Lindro). So be sure head on down to you local comic shop and grab some new reads. I will spend a little time at the racks over at Dr. Comics and Mr. Games in Oakland, CA. So until next week stack them high and enjoy the read.
