New Comics For Wednesday 31st of October



Hello and welcome to the most amazing 5th week shipment list we have EVER seen.
Normally the smallest week for releases, this week breaks all the rules with these wonderfully titles!
Settle in, it's a loooong one.

After a shocking first issue full of twists, get ready for another book of mysteries in Tom King and Clay Mann's HEROES IN CRISIS #2 (OF 7). Two members of the DC Universe are fugitives from the rest of the heroes, with Batman, the World's Greatest Detective, leading the investigation. But even the Darknight Detective falls under the suspicion of Superman and Wonder Woman when it appears he's not being fully forthcoming. Will the Trinity remain intact, or will it be shattered?

Finally translated into English, One's popular manga series (no, not One Punch Man...) begins with MOB PSYCHO 100 TP VOL 01. Having a problem with ghosts, but don't have the funds for a high-end exorcist? Then Reigen's your man, keeping his prices low and his quality of service high! But how does he do it, with no psychic powers of his own? By using a real psychic, Shiego, who's still in high school and cheaper than minimum wage. What could possibly go wrong?

Celebrate the spookiest day of the year with your own copy of AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1, with a creepy Capenstein cover from Gerardo Zaffino. Then delve inside for tales most macabre starring your favourite Marvel heroes and villains, including the X-Men and Doctor Doom. We recommend you leave all the lights on when reading this one, unless you're especially daring.

The immensity of Spider-Geddon is too much for just one miniseries, so expand your horizons with SPIDER-FORCE #1 (OF 3) SG, from Christopher Priest, and see what Kaine and his Spider-team are up to. The team consisting of Spider-Woman Jessica Drew, Ashley Barton of the Old Man Logan Universe and two fresh fac- masks, the team dynamic will surely be as interesting as the story.

The Spider-action doesn't end there, webheads, keep you eyes peeled for a copy of VAULT OF SPIDERS #1 (OF 2) SG . Another fun tie-in, full of short, anthological stories that expand the scope of the Spider-Verse more than ever before, including a look at the life of Spider-Man from the 70's Japanese TV show.

As a small child, Ilyana Rasputin was kidnapped and left in Limbo, before being spat back out into the world, aged up to 15 years old. Originally, she joined the New Mutants, but what if a team wasn't what she needed? What if she wanted nothing to do with being an X-Men, or have anything to do with her powers? Check out WHAT IF? MAGIK #1, the last book in Marvel's revamped What If series. Fingers crossed there'll be more in the future.

Leah Williams and Chris Bachalo take the reins of Emma Frost's life in X-MEN BLACK EMMA FROST #1. Emma used to be White Queen of the Hellfire Club, now she wants nothing more than to be able to tear it down after all the grief it's given her. Can she convince the X-Men to help her? Once you've read that, stick around for the final part of Zac Thompson's X-Men Black: Apocalypse, the ultimate climax that the previous 4 issues have been building to.

The Dark Knight Detective has a massive Batfiling cabinet full of solved cases, some of which are now only coming to life in BATMAN SECRET FILES #1 FOIL. With all star creators such as Tom King, Mikel Janin, Tom Taylor, Elena Casagrande and more, with an Arkham Asylum full of villains for the Bat to tackle, there'll be plenty of fun, engaging cases to enjoy, don't pass this one up. It even has a shiny Batcover.

In Jellystone Park, a mysterious picanic basket thief is on the loose, believed to be a bear spirit known as "The Yogi" in DEATHSTROKE YOGI BEAR SPECIAL #1. But when it appears the spirit has graduated from baskets to campers, Ranger Smith calls in the mercenary Deathstroke to track down, and eliminate, the cause of trouble. How is Frank Tieri and Mark Texeria gonna get Yogi out this boo boo? Plus part one of a back up tale from J. M. DeMatteis, starring Secret Squirrel.

Set in the turbulent 1970's, John Stewart, the Green Lantern, and Huckleberry Hound, the hound named Huckleberry, find themselves united against the people in GREEN LANTERN HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SPECIAL #1, from Mark Russell and Rick Leonardi. Stewart has just returned from combat in Vietnam, whilst Huckleberry has spoken out against the conflict, and together, they'll face down the Civil Rights Movement against them. All that, plus more Secret Squirrel.

A famous Hollywood agent is found... murdered. The prime suspect? Oscar-winning actor Magilla Gorilla. The lead investigator is the former Boy Wonder, Nightwing, and he's going to need all the wits Heath Corson and Tom Grummet are willing to provide him in NIGHTWING MAGILLA GORILLA SPECIAL #1 to solve it. Second in command, J. M. DeMatteis then takes over with the third part of his Secret Squirrel back up.

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird; it's a plane; it's... a cat in a hat!? That's right, folks, the blue boy scout and the dapper cat unite in SUPERMAN TOP CAT SPECIAL #1, from Dan DiDio and Shane Davis. Together, Superman and Top Cat will take down the probiotic threat of Kalien, if the salad bar doesn't defeat them first. In addition, a final helping of J. M. DeMatteis' Secret Squirrel. Please buy them, or we'll be swimming in squirrels...

For centuries, America has been home to a secret war between a coven of witches and the group of men trying to tame them, called the Architects. It was thought the conflict was over when the witches killed the leader of the architects in 2005. But thirteen years later, in HEX WIVES #1, it would appear that it wasn't the end at all and the new hope lies in Isadora... who has no memory of ever having been a witch.

You've read the prequel, now the Drowned Earth event begins in earnest with JUSTICE LEAGUE AQUAMAN DROWNED EARTH #1, with this issue being written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Howard Porter. Alien sea gods, known as the Ocean Lords, have arrived on Earth and they have a large grudge against Wonder Woman and Aquaman, but why? As Batman, Superman and the Flash fight to keep their cities afloat, Aquaman must do battle against Black Manta to maintain his connection to the ocean, whilst his wife, Queen Mera, must turn to an old enemy to ensure the survival of Atlantis.

Originally run in the pages of Image Plus, Scott Snyder and Jock's Wytches volume 2 prequel is collected for your convenience in WYTCHES BAD EGG HALLOWEEN SPEC (ONE-SHOT), just in time to deliver a book-load of spooks to you for Halloween. Seb and Jackson have both been raised in the same town, but one of the side of good and the other on the side of evil. Can the two overcome century long prejudices and be friends, or will their families tear them apart? 

Enrico Marini, an acclaimed master of European comics, turns his talents to the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime in BATMAN THE DARK PRINCE CHARMING HC. Originally released as two separate volumes, here they are combined into a single book, marking Marini's Western comics debut. What secret do Batman and the Joker share, and who is the young girl at the heart of it?

Jack Kirby's demon Etrigan finds himself the star of a new miniseries, entirely collected within DEMON HELL IS EARTH TP, from Andrew Constant and Brad Walker. In Death Valley, Hell has risen to the surface, and it threatens to continue to take over the Earth. With a mystery child and his ally, Madam Xanadu, can the Demon Etrigan prevent a fiery fate for the Earth?

With her creator having moved to the Distinguished Competition, Kelly Thompson steps up to fill Brian Michael Bendis' shoes and brings to us JESSICA JONES MPGN TP BLIND SPOT. Originally released in digital format, Blind Spot now comes complete in paper for the first time, as Jessica Jones, having just faced down her greatest fears, must go back to work as a private investigator. Good thing the Marvel Universe is full of strange cases the police are only too willing to leave cold for Jones. 

Speaking of Brian Bendis, the entirety of his Superman miniseries is collected in MAN OF STEEL BY BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS HC,  a perfect place to wet your feet in the vast mythology of Superman. Something as happened to Jon and Lois, someone is setting fires in Metropolis and a new villain has hit the scene. A huge day for all of us, but another day in the life of Superman. With a slew of all star artists, including Evan "Doc" Shaner, Jim Lee, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and more, get yourself caught up with the original superhero today.

Following the grand success of his first X-Men Grand Design series, Ed Piskor returns to give another helping with X-MEN GRAND DESIGN SECOND GENESIS TP. The 60s are out of the way, and now Piskor focuses on the renaissance of the X-Men in the 70s. Highlights include the foundation of a new team, the arrival of the Shi'ar, which all leads to one thing: Dark Phoenix. With a love of the original comics and the painstaking research evident on every page, don't miss out, secure yourself a copy.

Here it is at last, folks: DOOM PATROL #12! After a six month wait, find out how the Doom Patrol find themselves out of a predicament that is rendering them... normal? That's right, the only thing weirder for the team than weird is normality, and who is the one behind it all? Subtly altering events of the past, manipulating the lives of everyone in the world? Could it be the writer Gerard Way himself? Pick up the concluding issue of the second arc to find out.

Celebrate your Halloween with the finale of James Tynion IV's JL DARK & WONDER WOMAN THE WITCHING HOUR #1. Zatanna battles against the great goddess Hecate for Wonder Woman's eternal soul whilst the rest of Justice League Dark fight for their lives. Can Zatanna free Diana from the shackles of Hecate's control, or will she be doomed to become entangled in Hecate's puppet strings herself?

With the acclaimed animated series, Adventure Time, coming to a close this year with season ten, Boom! Studios will help fans dry their tears with ADVENTURE TIME SEASON 11 #1. Picking up where the Great Gum War leaves off, this is your go-to for further adventures starring Finn, Princess Bubblegum, Jake and many more of your favourite classics.

Since 1968, audiences have been wowed by the spectacle of a planet ruled by apes. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of such an enduring franchise, check out a copy of PLANET OF THE APES TIME OF MAN #1. An anthology with stories taking place during and inbetween the films, get a better examination of the fall of man and the rise of the apes, with work from Dan Abnett, David Walker, Carlos Magno and more.

Things are still scary and getting scarier for Will Byers in Jody Houser and Stefano Martino's STRANGER THINGS #2, as he continues to find a way to escape the Upside Down. Drawing upon his considerable knowledge of D&D, he keeps on surviving, and accidentally learns that he can manipulate the lights of his family home. But Will's excitement is short lived when he realises he's not the only one who can control the lights... and they want out of the Upside Down as well.

Edgar Allan Poe becomes the poster boy for the harms of alcohol in EDGAR ALLAN POE`S SNIFTER OF TERROR #1, as classical fiction is merged with Terror of the Crypt-esque horror. A sauced Poe, with the help of Tom Peyer, recounts one of his own stories, but his warped mind may present a story completely different to what you remember. With additional stories from Mark Russell, Peter Snejbjerd and other great creators, you'll definitely be getting more than just a snifter of terror.

Life is hard enough to live these days, and secrets are even harder to keep, so spare a thought for the sorceress, Esperanza in SEX DEATH REVOLUTION #1. Her cover has been blown and now she's trying to rebuild her life, which is a hard task to complete when someone has taken it upon themselves to rewrite your life. That's already a tough start, but Magdalene Vissagio, with Becca Farrow, aren't going to be letting up on their heroine anytime soon.

Since the original Die Hard came out thirty years ago, the landscape for action films was forever changed. Now John McClane returns, a little older and a little wiser, in A MILLION WAYS TO DIE HARD HC GN, but still capable of kicking ass. Frank Tieri and Mark Texeira bring John back to LA, to the building where it all began, and there will be plenty of dead men walking to greet him.

The heavy metal/pop fusion sensation known as Babymetal invites you into their wondrous universe with APOCRYPHA THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL SC. With their world on the brink of apocalypse, Babymetal will assume various forms to combat the forces of darkness and return light to the world.

Ever since he made his mark in the 80s, Bill Sienkiwicz's work has stood out from the thralls of others, solidifying his legacy as one of the greatest artists to grace the comic book page. Now you can get some of his greatest covers, pin-ups and pages from books such as Moon Knight, Elektra and the New Mutants in BILL SIENKIEWICZ MUTANTS & MOON KNIGHTS ARTIFACT ED, presented in IDW's award-winning Artist Edition format. It's the next best thing to owning the real thing.

The Enderverse is collapsing in on itself; everything that was, is and ever shall be is ceasing to be and the Dimensionauts are the only ones who can save it. The final mission begins with BLACK SCIENCE TP VOL 08 LATER THAN YOU THINK, as Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera deliver a journey through space unlike anything before,

With an alien invasion at hand, the military defence industry is booming and the Hyujin weapons are the hottest items around. But outside of the government, the citizens are tired of stockpiling and are willing to take up their protest signs and make them extra pointy. Meanwhile, Kadode has come to realise how life should be lived in the apocalypse, and having finished high school, isn't quite as concerned about college entrance exams as she used to be. It's all just another day in the life of Inio Asano's DEAD DEAD DEMONS DEDEDEDE DESTRUCTION GN VOL 03.

Noah Van Sciver's Fante Bukowski trilogy finds its conclusion in FANTE BUKOWSKI GN VOL 03 THREE PERFECT FAILURE, taking a last look at the self-styled literary superstar: Fante Bukowski. Still as self-important as ever, Van Sciver wastes no time tearing into Bukowksi's delusions of grandeur with his hilarious dialogue.

The master of modern manga horror, Junji Ito, takes on Mary Shelley's classic tale of terror in FRANKENSTEIN HC JUNJI ITO STORY COLLECTION. With Ito's nightmarish visuals, even the most hardened of Frankenstein fans will shiver in fear at the sight of the Monster. Once you're brave enough to finish Frankenstein, also included are six tales starring Oshikiri, a high school student who lives in a haunted mansion that connects to a nightmare fueled parallel world.

After the disaster that was their first mission, the remaining Gantz team members regroup in GANTZ G TP VOL 02. Some members are looking at building up enough game points to resurrect the shy Naiki, but other team members are considering using the suits to rebel against their captors and take revenge.

Jeff Lemire and Eduardo Risso take the reins from Mark Millar to bring you HIT-GIRL TP VOL 02.
Finding herself in Canada, she won't let anything get in her way to slaughter her foes, whether it be ice, snow or the dreaded Canadian Mounties. Never has a 12 year old been more psychotic than Mindy.

As the ZQN virus continues to infect and mutate the world into a planet of zombies, Yabu and Hiromi race against the clock to find Hideo. The action is revving up in Kengo Hanazawa's I AM A HERO OMNIBUS TP VOL 08, as the grand finale draws ever closer.

Is there any better way to start a story than with the death of an entire family? That's exactly what awaits in Steve Skroce's MAESTROS TP VOL 01, where the Maestro and his family are exterminated. All of them... bar one!  His son, a millennial banished to Orlando, will receive the powers of a god when he takes his father's throne. Can the new king Maestro survive the enemies who wish to take his place?

 Lou Pirlo thought his life could only go up after he and his new girlfriend, Delia, jump aboard a box car and legged it to New Orleans. Believing themselves far away from the murderous Appalachian hillbillies, the pair think they can relax, but they haven't accounted for one thing: they're the stars of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's MOONSHINE TP VOL 02. Being a werewolf was hard enough on Lou, but now he has a murderous monster out for his hide, and it'll take all of his wits to keep himself and Delia alive.

A legend of the comic book medium, Alberto Breccia, teams with Hector Oesterheld to bring you MORT CINDER HC. A horror story presented in the trappings of political intrigue, witness a man who rises from his grave after each and every one of his deaths, witnessing darkest sides of humanity upon each resurrection. Many greats of American comics, such as Frank Miller and Mike Mignola, owe their successes to the enduring legacy left by Breccia over half a century ago.

Sui Ishida's popular, ghoulish manga continues with TOKYO GHOUL RE GN VOL 07. Sen Takatsuki has released her new book, which is already sowing the seeds of distrust in the authorities, but that may be overshadowed by the viral video of Sen admitting to being a ghoul! How can the CCG continue to investigate if the public can't trust them? Especially if what Sen has said about them... is true?

For fans of Princess Jellyfish, this is the book for you, as original creator Akiko Higashimura delivers a new book in the form of TOKYO TARAREBA GIRLS GN VOL 01. Rinko has coasted through her life, but suddenly she takes notice that she's the writer of an online soap opera and has only two friends. But after a night of hard drinking, Rinko has also now managed to claim that she'll be married by the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. How will it go? All we can say is: there won't be any happy endings.
  
If the massive gamescape of Witcher III: The Wild Hunt isn't enough Geralt of Riviera for you, then definitely grab yourself a copy of WITCHER LIBRARY EDITION HC. With three, complete, five-issue miniseries, along with the Killing Monsters one-shot, along with a wealth of sketchbook artwork from talents such as: Dan Panosian, Dave Johnson, Stan Sakai and even a cover from Mike Mignola, your Witcher collection won't be complete without it.

No-one can resist the allure to celebrate Halloween, and here's the proof: WWE UNDERTAKER ORIGINAL GN. The Undertaker enjoyed a lengthy, unrivalled career, and so, Chad Dundas and Rodrigo Lorenzo have decided to undertake (ZING!) the great task of documenting it, and the result is the best wrestling graphic novel around.

Books books books! So many new, spooky books to read, so you may also want something else to kill the time with while you recover your wits between each one. In which case, be sure to grab BATMAN ANIMATED SERIES GOTHAM UNDER SIEGE GAME, for hours of fun where you and your friends and family take the role of a member of the Batfamily to clean the dirty streets of Gotham!

Now have a rest and think about any extras we need to stash for you from this list. Let us know before close on Tuesday and we'll get it sorted for you.
Until we see you next, have a great week, live life and read comics.
