Comic Station Issue #31 – July 31st 2013

Comic Station #31 Feature
We at Comic Station try to highlight new releases and other series many might otherwise overlook. We typically don’t report on long-standing series unless revolutionary. We add a little something extra in our Reviews and Recommendation section.
New Releases: This week on Comic Station starts off with a sequel to the soon-to-be-a-movie 2Guns with 3Guns #1from Boom Studios. The first issue of Captain Midnight #1 from Dark Horse Comics might be a better Captain America than the big-name guy’s current run. Collider #1 from Vertigo turns the world upside-down in this new physics-don’t-apply series. Skyward #1 from Action Lab Comics might look like a kids book, but it’s Young Adult and a great start to a new series from a small publisher. Admittedly a good surprise on this issue of Comic Station, Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril #1 from Vertigo is a humorous return to campy comics of old done right with great foreshadowing of things to come.
Reviews: Lido covers both reviews from Dark Horse this week for Comic Station. Gamma #1 is a “pokemon on LSD” while Lobster Johnson #1 will appeal to any pulp noir fans.
