    Comics Should Be Cheap! (8/21/2019)

    Buying comics can be an expensive hobby. A lot of fans simply can’t afford everything they’re interested in, due to rising prices and the over-saturation of the market with superhero titles.

    That’s why we’re here. Every week, the Multiversity staff is asked “What would you buy this week if you couldn’t go over $20?” and shares their reasons why, in order to help others who might have similar tastes make their own decisions in buying comics on a budget. Be sure to leave your own picks in the comments!

    Kevin’s Picks:

    “Death’s Head” #2 ($3.99) – People might’ve slept on the first issue of this four issue miniseries because it debuted the week “House of X” did, but that issue was SOOO GOOD. I love what Tini Howard, Kei Zama, Felipe Sobriero and Travis Lanham are doing here. From the coding lettering to Teddy and Billy being in this book (in a huge way that I did not expect) this series is gold. Check it out.

    “Daredevil” #10 ($3.99) – I recently caught up on the last few issues of the second arc of this book, and, let me tell ya, Chip Zdarsky is taking Matt Murdock through the most Catholic-guilt ridden, midlife crisis of midlife crises. This issue with added Jorge Fornés

    “Valkyrie: Jane Foster” #2 ($3.99) – The first issue of “Valkyrie” too may have gotten swallowed in the HoxPox excitement, but I will follow Jane Foster anywhere.

    “Powers of X” #3 ($4.99) – And of course you’re weekly dose of, “I don’t know what’s happening, but I love it.”

    Total: $16.96. Well shoot I guess it’s a Make Mine Marvel kind of week for me.

    Vince’s Picks:

    Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #2 ($3.99) – The first issue of this Matt Fraction/Steve Lieber maxi-series was full of irreverent twists and turns, title page fake-outs, and layered humor that ended up with our titular hero in a run-down apartment in Gotham City. Don’t most characters in the DCU end up in Gotham sooner or later? It’s a side of Gotham we don’t often see, and I feel like Jimmy Olsen is going to give us a unique perspective on it. I can’t wait to see what the creators have in store.

    Powers of X #3 ($4.99) – Let’s keep this train going. Each issue has been better than the one that came before. How long can they keep this up?

    Total: $8.98

    Mark’s Pick:

    “New World” ($16.99)— An original graphic novel from David Jesus Vignolli, “New World” tells the story of a Portuguese sailor arriving in the Americas, a native American warrior, and an enslaved African musician in what’s described as “a vibrant blend of fantasy and history.” There’s a preview up on Vignolli’s website and it looks gorgeous.

    Total: $16.99.
