It is that time again. That time we tell you everything you need to be buying right now! Well.. Or at least a few more things to buy... Here are this week's Amazing Staff Picks.
Batman: White Knight #5 (of 8)
Jack's mind and body begin to betray him as he prepares for an inevitable showdown with Batman, and Bruce himself struggles to keep his team united. As the game gets tougher, Batman seeks counsel from a shocking source-and after Wayne Manor is infiltrated, a car chase for the ages aims to curb Napier's supercriminal crew once and for all.
Jack Napier is the popular political choice right now. Even, apparently, amongst the police. And... Maybe even the Batman Family? With everyone turning their backs to the Batman, it is time for the final showdown to begin. But will the pills that are keeping the Napier's sanity stay steady, or will his body (or the Joker) begin to fight back? We have not spoken about Sean Murphy's (Tokyo Ghost) Batman: White Knight in a few months on here but we cannot shut up about it in store! It is so good that it is BOTH of our Norrins (Norrins-es?) pick this week!
Swamp Thing: Winter Special #1
Tom King (Batman) and Jason Fabok (Justice League vs Suicide Squad) pay tribute to the legendary creators of Swamp Thing, writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, as they join forces for an earth-shattering Swamp Thing passion project! In this new, squarebound one-shot, Swamp Thing is out of his element as he shepherds a lost boy through a blinding blizzard and other hazards of a strange, frozen tundra. In this touching and harrowing tale of survival, the pair must navigate countless threats throughout a bewildering terrain-with a bloodthirsty snow monster hot on their heels. But how long can they rely on each other? Separated from the Green and stripped of his powers in this dead world, Swamp Thing struggles to fight for their lives and deliver the boy to safety. Disoriented and decaying, Swamp Thing's fading understanding of his surroundings forces the duo to confront their desperation and uncover the true identity of the snow monster that hunts them. In addition, this special features the final Swamp Thing story from the monster's co-creator, Len Wein. Originally intended as the start of a new series, it is presented here both in its original script form and with art by Kelley Jones.
Do you love Swamp Thing? Do you... REALLY love Swamp Thing? This is the special for you. Written by DC's own (Washington DC that is) Tom King, this is the Swamp Thing special we have all been waiting for. And... It is practically (and near completely) sold you.
