Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons, Archaia. The art on the cover alone is enough to sell me on this series. Each of the four books will feature a tale delivered by The Storyteller and his faithful dog. Will this series be worth a dragon’s treasure hoard? To me, yes!
Godzilla 1964 figure, SH Monster Arts. Another masterful collectible from this company. Detail here is unrivaled. Prepare your desk at work for his path of destruction.
Unfollow #2, Vertigo. Written by Rob Williams and art by Michael Dowling. This book has already been optioned by Hollywood, so jump on now. All you need to know is that 140 random people have been selected by a social-media mogul as his heirs, splitting $17 billion among them. Do we believe for a moment that there aren’t strings attached? Nope.

Millennials: You Are Special #1, Gryphon Knights. I am really proud to be able to pick this book, since it was made by me and my buddies, Tom Griffin and Guillermo Villarreal. This is the story of the most feared and hated group on Earth. That’s right, Millennials. In the inaugural issue of this satirical miniseries, a small group of Millennials, led by Entitleman, fight giant robots out to collect college debt. If you can relate to this, support the book, by picking it up!

I’m filling in for Scott and Ted this week, what with Thanksgiving making with the scheduling problems. So here I go:
Red Wolf #1, Marvel. 1872 was the best Secret Wars tie-in, so I cannot wait for the continuing adventures in the Old West town of Timely. From Nathan Edmondson and Dalibor Talajic. Great Jeffrey Veregge cover.
Tet #4, IDW. This little title deserves more attention. Paul Tucker and Paul Allor’s Vietnam War (and beyond) mystery is a twisty-turny meditation that hits on unexpected points.
Paper Girls #3, Image. Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang take us back to the ’80s with a quartet of suburban paper girls battling the neighborhood hoodlums … and what may or may not be an alien invasion. (For an interview with Chiang, click here.)
Harley’s Little Black Book #1, DC Comics. So Harley Quinn gets a second book, huh? Who’da thunk it? I mean, yeah, it seems obvious now, but just a few years ago? Anyway, this is a bimonthly book of Harley team-ups, starting off with Wonder Woman! From Harley’s regular team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner and all their fun guests.
Daredevil #1, Marvel. Every Ron Garney page I’ve seen looks magnificent, so this one is a must-buy. Written by Charles Soule.
Spidey #1, Marvel. Early-years Spider-Man stories set in modern continuity? I have to try that. Have to. By Robbie Thompson and Nick Bradshaw — with the old Electric Company logo!
