Painted Staff Picks (01/10/2018)

Oops... We almost put 2017. But... No! It is our first Painted Staff Picks of 2018! Happy New Year, Comic Fans! Let's get started and jump right into what books we think you should be reading...

Adam's Pick

Old Man Hawkeye #1 (of 12)

Adam's Pick

The super heroes have fallen.  The country has been divided into territories controlled by super villains.  Among the wastelands lives CLINT BARTON - one of the few Avengers to survive.  But it's been 45 years, and he's no Avenger.  Trying to eke out a living anyway he can, the former HAWKEYE is confronted with a startling discovery:  the sharpshooter is going blind.  With time running short, Clint realizes there's one last thing he wants to see: revenge for his fallen comrades-in-arms. Rising-star writer Ethan Sacks (Secret Empire: Brave New World) and superstar artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars Shattered Empire) take you back to the Wastelands in a story set five years before the original classic OLD MAN LOGAN.  


Barton is not as young as he used to be. And, though he does not call himself an Avenger anymore, his heart and sole have not changed. Even with age getting the better of him, he still seeks justice for those whom he once loved.

If you are a fan of the original Wolverine Old Man Logan series from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Kingsmen: The Secret Service) and Steve McNiven (Secret Empire), you will want to dive into this story. #1 is now out on shelves.

Funky's Choice I

Judas #2 (of 4)

Funky's Pick (Part I)

Judas comes face-to-face with Satan, and the Great Adversary begins to win him over.

The story of the man went from Disciple to Betrayer. But he was not just one who took a few coins to give up one of the holiest men in history. There was darkness, evil and even light behind Judas' actions.

This book is a MUST in your collection. From Emmy Winner Jeff Loveness (World Reader) and artist Jakub Rebelka (Namesake), #2 is on the shelf now and is going fast!
