ANALOG #1
Writer: Gerry Duggan
Artist: David O’Sullivan, Jordie Bellaire
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: 3.99
CHAPTER ONE Five years from now: the security of the internet has been totally destroyed. Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they’re entrusted to armed couriers called “Ledger Men,” like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis. He’s got a gun in one hand and a briefcase handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back—because he had a part in the cyber attack that changed the world. Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack’s fist into the faces of spies, mercs, fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence. From your new favorite artist, DAVID O’SULLIVAN, and GERRY DUGGAN, The New York Times bestselling author of such indie titles as Deadpool, Star Wars: Chewbacca, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Uncanny Avengers!

RODRIGO: I initially picked this title because I wanted to make a joke about it being available digitally, but once I read the solicitation I actually got interested.

REEFER MADNESS TPB
Writer: Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster
Artist: Jerry Robinson, Jack Kirby, Frank Frazetta
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $19.99
SOLICITATION: Degradation! Crime! Madness! Hysteria surrounded marijuana as a perceived gateway drug from the 1930s to the 1950s and beyond. Adventure Comics, by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, and works by Frank Frazetta, Jerry Robinson, Jack Kirby, and many more, reveal the social reaction to this era of Reefer Madness. From comically misinformed to soberly concerned, these comics lament the impact of weed on youth culture.
* Eisner and Harvey Award winner Craig Yoe brings us his newest collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics!

RODRIGO: It’s a rare opportunity to tap into one of the most panicky moral panics that ever did panic. Plus: Kirby, Frazetta and Robinson in one place? Amazing!

STEPHEN: It’s made the move to IDW Publishing, and though there is a bit of controversy over the previous run, I really want to see how the famous hedgehog does at its new home. Worth checking out this week.
