I thought it’d be kind of fun to do a comic that I’m looking forward to instead of a book this time.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book comic that we are eagerly anticipating!
Publisher: Boom! Studios
Written by Dan Abnett; illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard
Release date: Issue #1 out September 10, 2014
Synopsis: When a rural English community of the 1930s is the victim of an alien invasion, the residents’ lives are upended by the harsh realities of life-and-death violence. Led by the town’s outsider and retired war veteran, they will have to rally together to uncover the secret of their invaders and ultimately fight back.
Why I’m excited: First, look at that cover. Second, this comic is being described as a mix between H.G. Well’s War of the Worlds and A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh. Are you kidding me? I added myself to the pull list for this one at the comic book shop the day I found out about it. Seriously. How cool does that sound? And look at that fox in his little outfit with a shotgun. I need this comic in my life. Kthanksbye.
