New Comics For Wednesday 10th of October



Lots and lots to be excited about this week but if we are being honest our heart really belongs to Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillip's new hardcover graphic novel, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies! We've even got a limited number of signed bookplates to go along with them as an added bonus!
Keen to learn more about this week's books...behold!

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, the team that has brought us such acclaimed series such as "Kill or Be Killed", "Criminal", "Fatale" and many more, reunite to bring you their first original graphic novel, MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES HC. A coming-of-age story, swimming in the dark themes of drugs and pills, lies within, as Ellie learns firsthand how her romanticised visions of drug use aren't what they seem. Not to mention learning how well drugs and murder mix together...

Having barely moved on from Amazing Spider-Man, Dan Slott returns to the Spider-Verse once more, and he's giving you an invitation... to the END! Spider-Men and Spider-Women from across the multiverse will need to unite once again in SPIDER-GEDDON #1 (OF 5) if they are to prevent their own doom at the hands of the Inheritors.

A familiar event occurs, Uncle Ben is ruthlessly gunned down by a burglar that Peter Parker could have stopped but didn't. What if he took his vow of responsibility to extreme levels? Developed more final measures to protect the innocent from harm and punish the guilty? Check out WHAT IF? PUNISHER #1 to see how events could have turned out should Peter have developed the mindset and methods of Frank Castle.

Last week was Magneto's day in the spotlight, now turn your attentions to the intergalactic showman who can turn anything and anyone into a sensation. Prepare yourself for an epic yarn starring Mojo, in X-MEN BLACK MOJO #1. If Mojo isn't your villainous cup of bitter tea, then part 2 of Zac Thompson's X-Men Black: Apocalypse storyline continuing from Magneto's issue should sweeten the deal.

Chills, terror and copious amounts of grievous bodily harm can be found in CURSED COMICS CAVALCADE #1, a terrific mix of EC-style horror with your favourite DC heroes. Batman, Wonder Woman, Guy Gardner, Swamp Thing, Zatanna and more find themselves in horrifying surrounds in a series of 10 stories from creators such as: Becky Cloonan, Riley Rossmo, Mark Buckingham, James Tynion IV and more. Don't read this one without all the lights on.

The universe has ended, the final remnants of humanity survive in a space station called Oprheus. Even when waiting for the potential coming of a second Big Bang, human nature asserts itself in INFINITE DARK #1, as Security Director Deva Karrell investigates the station's first murder.

Grab your air guitar, heavy metal and a generous serving of self-confidence when you make your way to pick up MURDER FALCON #1. Daniel Warren Johnson's new book features down on his luck, Jake, who through life's hurdles has no band, lost a partner and seemingly has no future; then he meets the Murder Falcon!! Sent from the Heavy, the Falcon must destroy all evil, and he'll need Jake's help and wicked licks to complete his mission. This is a book that will make you break out in air guitar shreds.

The best comic book to come out of the 1990's returns to the Absolute oversized edition with ABSOLUTE KINGDOM COME HC NEW ED. Mark Waid and Alex Ross' masterpiece expertly tackled the issue of how the industry was drowning in reckless antiheroes, and reminded us why the heroes of the days gone by, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and others, still inspire us to this day. With Ross' artwork expanded to better show every last, loving detail, this edition will make you fall in love with Kingdom Come all over again.

A film studio that, despite a 40 year history and a library of a thousand films, never landed a hit, Troma Studios is the result of Lloyd Kaufman's determination to never compromise his vision. The ART OF TROMA HC features the perfect inside look at that vision, and at the films, such as the Toxic Avenger and the Class of Nuke 'Em High, that made the studio so infamous.

A complete, 100% unauthorised parody of a popular children's book, the boneheads at MAD Magazine present DONT LET THE PENGUIN DRIVE THE BATMOBILE HC. Whilst the Batman is away, it's up to us to keep the Batmobile safe. But the mischievous Penguin has his heart set on taking the Batmobile for a spin. Will you let the Penguin drive the Batmobile?

Wolfsbane, Rictor, Boom Boom, Strong Guy and leader, Magik, are no longer X-Men in training, they are... the New Mutants! Breaking into the Sanctum Sanctorum of Doctor Strange, braving an Arctic base full of corpses, stopping a crashing plane whilst the passengers try to stop them and attending the funeral of one of their own are only some of the crazy adventures that lie in the excellent NEW MUTANTS TP DEAD SOULS, from Matthew Rosenberg and Adam Gorham.

Following the multiverse-shaking events of Dark Nights: Metal, Plastic Man, Mr. Terrific, Metamorpho and Phantom Girl find themselves all bound together by a mysterious force. Together they form a new super team: the Terrifics! Follow their formation and early adventures in TERRIFICS TP VOL 01 MEET THE TERRIFICS, with art from Ivan Reis, Evan "Doc" Shaner and more, with scripts from the ever-masterful writer, Jeff Lemire.

Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's gripping, period thriller gets a coloured re-release beginning with FROM HELL MASTER EDITION #1. Jack the Ripper stalks the streets of Whitechapel and no-one is safe. It's up to Inspector Abberline of Scotland to track the Ripper down and unwind the coiled conspiracy that may lead all the way up to the English Monarchy.

Has it already been fifteen years? Fifteen years since Rick Grimes awoke to find his world engulfed by a zombie plague? Indeed it has, and to celebrate Walking Dead Day and the significant milestone, be sure to pick up the issue where it all started: WALKING DEAD #1 15TH ANNV VAR.

If you've already bagged yourself the beginning of Robert Kirkman's groundbreaking epic, then also check out these other swarms of significant issues, each with their own horde of cover variations:

The timeline needs to be protected at all costs, and who better to lead a team than the smartest man in history? Check out ALBERT EINSTEIN TIME MASON #1, starring Albert Einstein himself, teaming up with various historical figures to create a team called the Time Masons, charged with protecting time on Earth. It's unlike anything you've ever seen before, but you'll believe how awesome it is.

When a random piece of astronomical data is received by the Earth, it will unwittingly set off the latest power struggle. The United States strives to be at the forefront of this new space race, and Sasha Balodis, a fun-loving tech billionaire, is the man to see them win it. Peter Calloway and Alex Shibao's LAST SPACE RACE #1 provides a modern twist on the space races of the Cold War, but with the heat cranked up, and the consequences more dire.

The popular young adult series of books "Shades of Magic" comes to the comic page with SHADES OF MAGIC #1 (OF 4) STEEL PRINCE, with original author V. E. Schwab returning to writing duties. In an olde time world where various alternate London cities can navigated by magicians, the good Prince of Red London seeks a darker version of the city he loves, with the risk of being exiled from his own looming overhead.

Having been in print since 1979, the Fangoria magazine begins a new era in their long history with FANGORIA VOL 2 #1. Filled with interviews and news regarding upcoming films, as well as retrospectives on horror classics, this magazine is a must-have for horror film buffs.

The seminal diary of Anne Frank, "The Diary of a Young Girl", receives its first graphic novel adaptation with ANNE FRANKS DIARY GRAPHIC ADAPTATION HC. Telling of Anne's horrific times hiding in Nazi-occupied Netherlands, and her ability to retain her humanity during it all, Ari Folman and David Polonsky faithfully translate that into a masterful mix of word and pictures. An engaging way to get acquainted with one of the best and most heartbreaking books of the 20th century.

The latest issues of Mark Waid's work on the rejuvenated Riverdale gang are collected for your convenience in ARCHIE TP VOL 06. But the gang may need more than just rejuvenation if they can't find a way to escape Cheryl Blossom's father holding them hostage! With Reggie also about to pay for his crimes, Riverdale will never be the same when this volume's complete.

Aubrey Sitterson and Chris Moreno have done their research so they can bring you the history of professional wrestling in the one beneficial volume: the COMIC BOOK STORY OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING GN. Depicting the rise of wrestling in American pop culture, the formation of the WWF/WWE enterprises and their droves of colourful characters, even showing the influence of professional wrestling on international formats, this book is just what ever wrestling fan ordered.

Everyone knows the story of Frankenstein and his horrific monster, but what did the monster do after forever escaping the clutches of his creator? Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson set out to answer exactly that in FRANKENSTEIN ALIVE ALIVE HC THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, which collects the entire miniseries, with additional art from accalimed "Batman" artist, Kelley Jones, who stepped in to finish the series after Wrightson's untimely passing.

An anthology of comics starring girls in their young adulthood, all by Carolyn Nowak, are contained within GIRL TOWN TP. Featuring the Ignatz-award winning stories "Radishes" and "Diana's Electric Tongue", along with other acclaimed stories, and even some new works, this collection is yearning for Nowak's fans to add it to their collection.

Written and illustated by Jason Walz, LAST PICK GN VOL 01 (OF 3) picks up after an alien race has abducted suitable members of the human race to work for them. Leaving behind those younger than 16, those older than 65 and those considered too "disabled" to work, youngsters Sam and Wyatt look to escape their captivity and defy the labels placed upon them, with a couple of laughs along the way.

An epic sci-fi journey is the subject of ON A SUNBEAM GN, as Mia searches the ends of the universe for her long, lost love. Joining a crew to travel, her adventure is interspersed with flashbacks to her pivotal year of boarding school where she meets her love. This breathtaking, galaxy-spanning love story from award-winning creator Tillie Walden will win a place in your heart.

Jeff Lemire's small town story reaches its conclusion in ROYAL CITY TP VOL 03 WE ALL FLOAT ON. The Pike family still grapple with the reality of their deceased younger brother Tommy when another member of the family arrives to ask questions, finally bringing the truth of the matter to light. Maybe now the Pike family will no longer be haunted by the ghosts of their past.

The popular Cartoon Network show gets another collection of comics courtesy of STEVEN UNIVERSE ONGOING TP VOL 03 FIELD RESEARCHING. Autumn comes to Beach City, and Steven, Connie and the Crystal Gems will find a variety of fun activities to keep themselves occupied. From painting lessons and studying wildlife to having sleepovers and learning to bake, there's always something to do in Beach City.

For the past five years, visionary Shaun Tan has done some soul-searching; the fruits of his labour culminates with TALES FROM INNER CITY HC. His works within will open your soul, and make you think more deeply about the seemingly ordinary things in the world around us.

A lot to like, if you've spotted something else you like the look of, let us know before Tuesday evening to get is sorted for you.
Until we see you next, have a great week, live life and read comics.
