Catch It at the Comic Shop February 14, 2018

Welcome to Catch it at the Comic Shop, where the Panel Patter team looks at what's coming out at your favorite store or digital device this week. Each one of us that participates picks up to five items due out this week, with a little bit about why we like them. (NOTE: We use solicitation material for this, so if we miss creators, please talk to your publisher!) Sometimes we might only have a few items to share, other weeks, keeping it to five will make for hard choices. Here's what the team wanted to highlight this week...

James' Picks:

The Black Monday Murders #8 by Jonathan Hickman, Tomm Coker and Michael Garland, published by Image Comics.
It's been a little while since an issue of this comic came out, but it's been one of my favorite comics in a long time. It's dark and complex and full of mystery and secrets, and the art from Tomm Coker is just fantastic.

Captain America #698 by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee and Matt Wilson, published by Marvel Comics.
I've been enjoying this newest run on Captain America. The last issue I enjoyed slightly less than the previous two, but I love the classic adventure feel that Waid and Samnee and Wilson have brought to the book.

Cold War #1 by Chris Sebela and Hayden Sherman, published by AfterShock Comics.
This sounds like a very cool science fiction read, about people brought to the future through cryogenics and made to be soldiers in a mysterious war. I really enjoy Sebela's writing, and Sherman drew The Few, one of my favorite comics of 2017. So, I'm very excited to check this out.
