New Comic Book Day – 14th February 2018

Hey look at that, it’s a second blog post in two days! Have I become a blogger? Is that what I do now?

New Comic Book Day

OK OK enough horsing around, let me show you the comic books that I (Ben) will be picking up for #NewComicBookDay…. the best day of the week!

 Kick-Ass #1

“KICK-ASS IS BACK-ready to wipe out the city’s criminal scum, destroy its gangs, and save its communities from decay. But there’s a new face beneath the old mask, a new figure wearing that famous green and yellow spandex. Who is this new vigilante superhero? Who can fill Dave Lizewski’s shoes? WHO IS THE NEW KICK-ASS? Find out in the first issue of this new, ongoing monthly series. Comic book legends MARK MILLAR and JOHN ROMITA, JR. reunite for the next chapter of the greatest superhero comic of all time.”


I’m intrigued by this so I’m going to pick up issue 1 and see what’s going on.

 Kill or be Killed #16

“Brubaker and Phillips’ bestselling series keeps ratcheting up the tension! Even the walls of a mental hospital can’t protect Dylan from his curse, and back on the streets of New York, the police still hunt the vigilante, but nothing is what it seems. And remember, each issue of KILL OR BE KILLED contains extra content and articles only available in the single issues.”


Kill or Be Killed goes from strength to strength and it’s the best comic book you’re currently not reading!

 Invincible #144

“SERIES FINALE ‘THE END OF ALL THINGS,’ Conclusion Final issue. Everything since issue one has been building to this. Nothing can prepare you.”


So we finally reach the end of Invincible. This is going to give me (and possibly Nate?) all the feels. Excited, nervous, sad, happy and probably a lot more! Be sure to check out The Invincible Podcast next episode that will be all about this…Nate and I may even be on there for a bit! We’ll also do a podcast about Invincible in the future.


Those are my picks, what are you getting?

Let me know what comics you’re picking up this week. I do a lot of forward planning by looking at – why not check it out? Also, thanks for taking the time to read this, hey maybe share it with a friend who likes comics?

Our new podcast should be going online tomorrow (Wednesday 14th February), our Black Panther review.

Anyway, you can find out information about our podcast on this page.

So we’ve only had the redesigned logos from MyOhMy Design for about 3 months….I thought it was time to update the blog that I know we have, I just neglect..

What do you want from me? I’m real busy ok?!

Any as you may or may not have seen from this Tweet, we’re recording on Wednesday. We’ll discuss those Superbowl trailers everyone’s been raving about, and probably talk a bit about Netflix’s new show, Altered Carbon.

Anyway, this has killed two birds with one stone – site updated and blogged about stuff.

On a bloody roll mate…!


New Comic Book Day picks this week


New Comic Book Day Picks

Week commencing 4th September 2017

As comic book fans, Wednesday is never ‘Hump Day‘, it’s ‘New Comic Book Day‘…!!!

These are the titles I (Ben) am picking up this week:

Outcast #30

I won’t lie, this is probably this comics last chance to impress me. The last few issues have been a struggle and whilst the artwork by  Paul Azaceta has been incredibly atmospheric, the story has dragged somewhat. Come on Robert Kirkman, don’t let me down!

Champions #12

Champions has been one of three reasons I’ve stuck with Marvel comics. Mark Waid’s story of younger superheroes going their own way has been lovely to read. Artwork by Humberto Ramos has been consistently excellent. I’ve even tolerated the Secret Empire tie ins!

Daredevil #26

This comic is the second reason I’ve stuck with Marvel comics! I’ve enjoyed getting to know Daredevil again over the last 24 issues and still have 25 at home to read! Written by Charles Soule, who seems to have a great affinity with the character, with artwork by Ron Garney.

Green Lanterns #30

They’ve been building this comic up nicely over the past 29 issues, and I have a feeling that Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, the rookie Green Lanterns that make up the lead duo of this comic, will be very important come Rebirth revelations over the next year. Written by Sam Humphries, with artwork by  Carlo Barberi and  Brad Walker.

Batman #30

Tom Kings run on Batman, since taking the reins from Scott Snyder when Rebirth launched, has veered from being below par to really interesting. I’ve enjoyed the War of Jokes and Riddles – this appears to be an interlude edition. Artwork by Mikel janin, who does draw a great Dark Knight!

The Walking Dead #171

Always a highlight of New Comic Book Day, The Walking Dead reaches number 171. If Mr Kirkman is saving his better writing for this comicbook (and Invincible) then that’s OK with me because this is always an essential read. The story is taking us to new locales as well, which I won’t get into here for fear of spoilers. As always, the artwork by Charlie Adlard has to be seen to be believed, it’s that great.

Those are my picks, what are you getting?

Let me know what comics you’re picking up this week. I do a lot of forward planning by looking at – why not check it out? Also, thanks for taking the time to read this, hey maybe share it with a friend who likes comics?

If you’re interested, our new podcast should be going online on Wednesday, and it should be a discussion on the Movies, TV shows and Comic Books we’re looking forward to for Autumn/Winter 2017. That is unless some sort of massive news about something we’re interested in drops between now and then….maybe a new trailer for Star Wars The Last Jedi…or an Avengers Infinity War trailer….or…something.

Anyway, you can find all our podcast episodes at or on iTunes.

Thanks tuning in,





Hello there!

Inspired by The Invincible Podcast discussing their favourite covers from the Invincible back issues, we decided to go right back to the beginning and post an image a day from this incredible comic, created by Robert Kirkman and Corey Walker.

So on May 14th 2017, we posted our first #DailyInvincibleCover!

As of June 17th 2017, we’ve posted 29 single issue covers, several trade covers and a few hardcovers. We’ve also had several interactions with long running series artist, Ryan Ottley, which has been a lovely surprise!

We hope that people will see the amazing artwork, and literally judge a book by its cover and go buy this incredible comic.

With the next issue137 released on Wednesday 21st June, there’s a lot more to come from the #DailyInvincibleCover!
