Deck the halls with boughs of holly and deck your shelves with books of comic, because it’s a very merry edition of Comic Book Day and we’ve got some top picks that’ll go great with a tall, frosty glass of eggnog (although if you’re reading anything with Wolverine in it, I must insist that you add a healthy splash of bourbon).

Top Picks

saga8

Saga #8 | Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Soon enough, you’ll be spending plenty of time with your in-laws. You might even have a sneaking suspicion that one of them is trying to kill you. Don’t worry – you’re not being paranoid; you’re just preparing yourself for the latest issue of Brian K. Vaughan’s terrific Saga. But even ex-soldiers on the run from the galaxy’s most dangerous bounty hunters have trouble when it comes to making nice with the in-laws. Hmm – maybe you weren’t so far off after all.

blackbeetle

The Black Beetle: Night Shift #0 | Francesco Francavilla

Originally serialized in Dark Horse Presents, The Black Beetle is Eisner Award winner Francesco Francavilla’s chance to flex his mystery muscles in this hardboiled pulp-noir tale with a superheroic twist. Murder! Intrigue! Nazi werewolves! Is there anything else you really need in a book? Considering that everyone from Jim Steranko to Matt Wagner to Warren Ellis is raving about the book, we suggest you hightail it down to your local comic book shop and snag a copy before the trail goes cold.

joepalooka

Joe Palooka #1 | Joe Antonacci, Mike Bullock & Matt Triano and Fernando Peniche

Tired of superheroes whaling on each other? Well, what about a little bit of the ol’ ultraviolence? While MMA fighting might not seem like a compelling source material (read Blair Butler’s excellent Heart to get that notion out of your head), Joe Palooka adds in a healthy helping of murder, wrongful accusations and Tijuana toughman contests to keep things interesting. Plus they brought back the heaviest hitter the 1930s had to offer – Joe Palooka himself – so that’s got to count for something, right?
