New Comics Day

New genre comics coming out tomorrow (due to Christmas) that I’ll be checking out:

Mystery
Revelations #5

Horror
BPRD: The Black Flame #5
30 Days of Night Annual 2005
The Keep #3
Night Mary #5
Night Club #2

Science Fiction
Silent Dragon #6
Revolution on the Planet of the Apes #1
Rocketo #4

All are pretty much tried and true comics for me except for Night Club and Revolution on the Planet of the Apes. The first issue of Night Club seemed like a standard monster-hunter comic, but had characters who were intriguing enough to deserve a second look. I was uncertain about Planet of the Apes until I interviewed the artist and learned that they’re sticking closely to the mythos of the original movies (muddled though it is). The creators love those films and I’m hoping that comes through in the comic.

Of the tried and true ones, I’m most excited about the 30 Days of Night Annual. If memory serves, this is the Nat Jones story that was originally slated to be in Bloodsucker Tales and features two of my favorite 30 Days characters, John Ikos from Return to Barrow and Dane from Dark Days. I’m especially fond of Dane because he’s one of Niles’s most complex characters.
