The Comic Stash I December Comics To Add To Your Holiday List

Well, ready or not it is December and time for Christmas shopping and getting together with loved ones. But you find yourself wanting some alone time and catching up on some great comics. Here are my comics that catch my attention to read for The Comic Stash December edition. I pick titles every month that may be a great one. Or, maybe I feel they may be worth your time because of the artist, writer, or topic.

Again, these are just my picks so please if you find something that suit your fancy get it. With that paper shortage hitting the world and of all the places comic books, a lot of company are not doing second prints. So, if you see one that seems worth your time make sure to garb it! Otherwise, it may get sold out, and you will regret it later. One other thing to remember: some titles may change release dates, but as now these are the dates I have for these titles. Let’s check out The Comic Stash December picks!

Week One December 1, 2021

The Comic Stash December edition begins with DC Comics. They have a few Annuals coming out this week that include the following: Batman 2021 Annual #1 by James Tynion with art by Ricardo Oriz. Let’s take a look at all the others.

It is a heavy week for DC Comic annuals if you collect these titles. Another title from DC Comics is, Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons #1 by Kelly DeConnick with art by Phil Jimenez. This is a must for Wonder Woman fans as the history of the Amazons is told in this series.

Week Two December 8, 2021

Heading into the next week of The Comic Stash December, Marvel has a new mini-series coming out: Devil’s Reign #1 (of 6) by Chip Zdarsky with art by Marco Checchetto. This series will do cross overs in other title as we see Wilson Frisk deciding to take out as many superheroes as he can with his army of super villains. Should be a fun read as we get to see some great villains taking on key heroes in the Marvel Universe.

Another new title from Marvel is, Captain America and Iron Man #1 by Derek Landy with art by Angel Unzueta. Both heroes do a team-up to track down a prisoner who escapes that leads to a bigger story.

Aftershock Comics has a new one-shot coming out, Tales of Mother F. Goose #1. The story is by Frank Tieri and art by Joe Eisma. This is tale crime and murder with the use of Mother Goose characters but with a dark humor twist to the story.

The last book to check out this week is by Dark Horse Comics. The comic Daisy #1 has the story and art by Colin Lorimer. In this story we meet Daisy who is a growing giant that may be related to cannibalistic giants casted out of Heaven.

Week Three December 15, 2021

The Comic Stash December edition moves forward with Marvel yet again. Marvel’s second issue of Hulk #2 comes out this week that is by Donny Cates with art by Ryan Ottley. In the last issue how, Bruce is using the Hulk to stay in control but how long will that truly last in this story.

Also, Marvel has part four of five of Demon Days coming out this week as well. Demon Days: Rising Storm #1 written and drawn by fan favorite Peach Momoko.

DC Comics has a new series called Batgirls #1 by Becky Cloonan and Michael Conrad with art by Jorge Corona. Should be a fun series as we see the ladies who have been Batgirl working together in this series. There will be a few cover variants to find as well since this is a new #1.

They will also have a new one-shot titled, Tis the Season to be Freezin #1 by a group of talented writers and artist. This one-shot will have ten separate stories and will be eighty pages.

Dark Horse Comics has a new series as well this week, Cloaked #1 by Mike Richardson with art by Jordi Armengol. Should be a fun story as we follow an investigator trying to find out what happens to vigilante was fighting crime and then suddenly disappears twenty-five years ago.

Aftershock Comics has, My Date with Monsters #2 is by Paul Tobin with art by Andy MacDonald coming out this week. This is a very different and creepy story where our dreams and nightmares become real because of a mistake made by the government. Definitely a Comic Stash December recommendation.

Week Four December 22, 2021

For fans of the series Nocterra comes a one-shot from Image Comics, Nocterra: Blacktop Bill Special by Scott Snyder with art by Tony S Daniel and Chris Sotomayor. The main villain in this story arch has been Blacktop Bill. But, we know nothing of this character until this one-shot explain his back story.

Another Marvel mini-series coming out is King Conan #1 of 6 by Jason Aaron with art by Mahmud Asrar.

Week Five December 29, 2021

Rounding off the last week of The Comic Stash December edition, I notice when there are five weeks in a month the last week is very heavy with titles. However, with four weeks, the last week is not as heavy. I do not know why that is, but something I notice now that I do more of these monthly columns. Marvel Comics has Devil’s Reign #2 of 6 by Chip Zdarsky with art by Marco Checchtto out this week.

Also, from Marvel this week is Timeless #1 by Jed MacKay with art by Greg Land, Mark Bagley, and Kev Walker. This story will follow the adventures of Kang the Conqueror.

DC Comics has DC vs. Vampires #3 of 12  by James Tynion IV with art by Matthew Rosenberg out this week.

Antarctic Press has a new one-shot from their best-selling series Rags with the title, Rags Sailor Ragowski #1 by Daquan Jenkins with art by Luigi Teruel.

Scout Comics has a new mini-series, Cult of Ikarus # 1 of 4, that is by Jenna Lynn Wright with art by Karl Slominski. This is a story about Vampires, and magic and punk rock that should be a great one to pick up.

Image Comics is following up on their great hot series Stray Dogs with Stray Dogs: Dog Days #1 of 2  by Tony Fleecs with art by Trish Forstner. Should be a great read for those who love the first series.
