Geek Picks for April 19th, 2017
New Comics Wednesday is upon us again, and some of us here at Outright Geekery are running down the top pick on our comic stacks for this week. It’s Geek Picks for April 19th, 2017! What are you looking forward to reading this week?
David: Shaolin Cowboy Who’ll Stop The Reign #1
Geof Darrow is one of my favorite artist. His art work is second to none. Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy has moved from Burly Man to Dark Horse Comics, and even then the frequency in which Shaolin Cowboy is published is spotty. But whenever a Shaolin Cowboy comic comes, it’s a reason enough for me to celebrate!
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

Who doesn’t like Surf and Turf? Well, what do you do when Surf and Turf doesn’t like YOU??? The Eisner Award-losing and -winning drawing room talkfest, The Shaolin Cowboy, returns and will try to answer those questions as the titular hero of the series finds that his road to hell is paved not with good intentions but old nemeses hell bent on bloody revenge… AGAIN!!!

Gaumer: Batman #21
The Button! It’s here. The event that’s not really an event with a crossover between Batman and Flash that’s not really a crossover, with the greatest comic book of all time as a backdrop. Are you confused? So am I! But the good thing is that it appears everyone in the DC universe is just as confused as we are. I want answers. But I’m more likely to just get more questions. Either way, I’m in it, and I’m excited.

“THE BUTTON” part one! The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here! The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall. What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party-and it’s not who anyone suspects! It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!
Retailers: This issue will ship with four covers. Please note that this issue’s lenticular cover edition is available only in the US and Canada.
