Comics Should Be Cheap (8/3/22) – Multiversity Comics

Comics can be a costly hobby. A lot of fans simply can’t afford everything they’re interested in, due to rising prices and the over-saturation of the market with superhero titles.

That’s why we’re here. Every week, the Multiversity staff is asked “What would you buy this week if you couldn’t go over $20?” and shares their reasons why, in order to help others who might have similar tastes make their own decisions in buying comics on a budget. You can also leave your choices in the comments.

Christopher’s Picks:

Survival Street #1 ($3.99)What happens to the Muppets after the end of post-apocalyptic America Life may be imitating art, given the current state of affairs. Anyway, James Asmus, Jim Festante and Abylay Kussainov seems like a fun satire, so I’ll definitely check it out (it’s got to be better than Happytime MurdersAt least.

Frankenstein: New World #1 ($3.99): I must admit, I haven’t read a Mignolaverse book since “Hellboy in Hell” a decade ago, but I love Frankenstein, and this seems removed enough from everything I’ve missed that I think I can enjoy it on its own merits.

Avatar: Adapt or Die #4 ($3.99): I need some more of this prequel. AvatarIt is always a good idea Avatar.

Total: $11.97

Kate’s Picks:

Golden Rage #1 ($3.99): What if? The Golden Girls Fight ClubHad a baby with your partner? It would be this series. Watch out for the file in the cheesecake and don’t take your eyes off of Sophia Petrillo!

Doctor Who Origins #3 ($3.99): One of my biggest concerns with Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall’s departure from Doctor Who was that we wouldn’t get to know the mysteries of the Fugitive Doctor. Thanks to comics, there is infinite potential for expanding stories. This is where it fits in to the bigger picture. Doctor Who story does remain to be seen, but for now I’m enjoying the ride.

The Sartorial Geek Magazine #2 (4.99): This magazine is back in print! Get ready to fall with some geeky fashion tips!

The Vineyard #1 ($4.99)Enjoy a glass of cabernet, a side of something otherworldly and family drama will be a lot more fun.

Total: $17.96

Mark’s Picks:

Frankenstein: New World #4 ($3.99) – The writers behind “B.P.R.D.: Hollow Earth” reunite for “Frankenstein: New World.” This alone makes this story something special for me. But on top of that it’s set in the new world post-Ragna Rok. Oh, and it’s a new Frankenstein story. And he has Ted Howard’s old Hyperborean Sword. And most importantly, it’s the debut of Peter Bergting in the Hellboy Universe. This is my jam.

Little Monsters #6 ($3.99) –Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen present a post-apocalyptic universe in which children are hunted by vampires. What’s not to love?

The Closet #3 ($3.99) – I haven’t started this James Tynion IV and Gavin Fullerton miniseries yet, but with the third and final issue now out, I’m looking forward to reading the whole thing at once. I’ve heard good things about it.

Golden Rage #1 ($3.99) –This one was a must-have for Kate. This could be a lot more fun than it is now.

Total: $15.96.

Johnny’s Picks:

Twig #4 (of 5) ($3.99) –Jim Henson Studios’s charming adventure tale is now available. While this book owes much to Henson, it also has enough of its own world building and heart not to feel redundant. It is my sincere hope that we will be able to return to this world in future.

Immortal X-Men #4 ($3.99) – Though I’ll be grabbing ALL of this week’s X-titles, I’ll just mention this one, as I think Michelle Banding’s art here is stunning, and she and Gillen do incredible work delving into the history of a very underrated mutant, Exodus.

The New Champion of Shazam! #1 ($3.99) – Speaking of stunning art, I do not miss Doc Shaner books – I just don’t do it. Josie Campbell and I were paired on a Mary Marvel novel! Manna from heaven, dear friends.

Total: $11.97
