7 JANUARY 2015


Welcome to the start of another new comic year, and Marvel are certainly kicking things off straight away with the debut of new series for (hopefully) loveable schmo ANT-MAN, Original Sin/Agent Carter tie-in miniseries OPERATION S.I.N,  and the world's most cheerful superhero THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL. I'm also very excited for the release of FEATHERS, an all ages, steampunk fairytale adventure that looks fantastic, and LADY KILLER, about a picture perfect 60s housewife who also happens to be a deadly assassin. Ms Marvel creator G Willow Wilson takes over as a new storyline begins in X-MEN, Fables spin-off FAIREST ends, as does HAWKEYE VS DEADPOOL, Matt Fraction's sellout space fantasy ODY-C returns, as well as new issues for HELLBOY AND THE BPRD, ANGELA: ASGARD'S ASSASSIN, BATMAN DETECTIVE COMICS, ANGEL AND FAITH, TREES, FADE OUT,  EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, MIRACLEMAN and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN.
What are you looking forward to reading this week? Talk to us @DavesComics!

Escape From New York #2
Feathers #1 (Of 6)
 WHY WE LOVE IT: In the footsteps of Archaia titles Rust, Iron, Will o' the Wisp, and The Reason for Dragons, debut writer-artist Jorge Corona brings a brand new voice to the comics industry with Feathers. With our passion for working with fresh talent, we could not be happier to introduce his work to a wider audience.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: There's never been a better time for fantastic, all-ages comics that embrace both the darkness and beauty in life. Fans of Avatar: Legend of Korra, Mike Mignola, and Amulet will fall in love with Poe, the boy covered in feathers.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: A reclusive boy born covered in feathers must help his first ever friend, a young girl named Bianca, as she tries to return to her home beyond the slums of the Maze. They must dodge street gangs and childsnatchers along the way, and perhaps together will learn the secrets to his mysterious past.
