New Comics For Wednesday 12th of December



Jingle Bells, Batman smells...GREAT! Can you sound what the Batman is cooking? This week we get Damned #2 AND #1 of Snyder and Jock's Batman Who Laughs. Big festive week for Batman and comics in general, just look at this list below!

With the controversy of last issue hopefully behind us, drag your mind out of the gutter and into the comic store for your copy of Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo's BATMAN DAMNED #2 (OF 3). As Batman continues to descend into the Gotham underbelly (and hopefully not underoos), he falls further into the city's madness, full of mysteries and dead ends. But with the mystical nature of his case at hand, who better to guide him through the fog than the Demon, Etrigan?

Gerry Duggan and Greg Smallwood focus in on what may very well the Sorcerer Supreme's final battle in DEFENDERS DOCTOR STRANGE #1. Alone, unaided, not an ally in sight, this may finally be the end for Earth's resident Master of the Mystic Arts, but what is it that resides in his bag...?

Norrin Radd carried an incredibly heavy burden as the Herald of Galactus. Tasked with finding planets to doom to satiate Galactus' hunger, all it takes is a single person to save or damn their world. In DEFENDERS SILVER SURFER #1, by creative powerhouse Jason Latour, can the Surfer find that single person to save another world, or is it chow time for Galactus?

It's the wedding that's been decades in the making, and to celebrate the impending nuptials between Ben Grimm and Alicia Masters, check out a copy of FANTASTIC FOUR WEDDING SPECIAL #1. Dan Slott, Gail Simone, Fred Hembeck, Laura Braga and Mark Buckingham invite you to Alicia's bacherlorette party, where a special guest villain decides to gatecrash, whilst the blue-eyed, ever lovin' Thing has a surprise encounter with his future father-in-law: the Puppet Master!

With a new movie set to hit the screens, and Spider-Geddon in full swing, there's never been a better time to get started on a new Spider series than with MILES MORALES SPIDER-MAN #1. Balancing school, homework and superheroics, things don't get any easier for Miles when the Rhino charges in and Brooklyn is overrun with criminals in the debut issue from Eisner winning writer Saladin Ahmed and Marvel Young Gun, Javi Garron.

Before his multiple vivisections, Darth Maul hid in the shadows of Coruscant, receiving tutelage from Darth Sidious and being molded into the weapon that would strike the Jedi Order down in STAR WARS AGE REPUBLIC DARTH MAUL #1, from Jody Houser and Luke Ross. Whilst Sidious plays a long game, weakening the Galactic Republic from within, Maul wants to strike out in the open. Can he contain himself long enough to ensure his master's victory?

The team behind Batman: The Black Mirror, Scott Snyder and Jock, return to bring you the continuing evil of a Jokerized Batman in BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #1 (OF 6). Bruce Wayne barely made it out alive after being preyed upon by the evil of the Dark Multiverse, and none were more deadly than the Batman Who Laughs. Thinking him dead at Challenger Mountain, Wayne will discover the shocking truth about the villain's survival... and may have to break his one rule!

With the Dark Knight Detective about to hit his 80th anniversary, his debut book begins the march towards issue #1000 with DETECTIVE COMICS #994, with Peter J. Tomasi and Doug Mahnke taking over. The commissioner calls Batman in on a crime scene that is both strange and yet familiar: a complete recreation of the murder of Martha & Thomas Wayne, down to the pearls and playbill. Can Batman put aside his very personal connection to the case long enough to find the answers?

Another new Vertigo book hits the stands with GODDESS MODE #1, by Zoe Quinn and Robbi Rodriguez, co-creator of Spider-Gwen. In the future, humanity is served by AI, but Cassandra Price is one of the unlucky humans who must do actual work and service it. But her life changes forever when she discovers a hidden digital world, and meets the super-powered women hunting for the cheat codes to life.

DC Talent Development Workshops' Class of 2018 have graduated, and DC is celebrating by publishing their one-shot, short stories in NEW TALENT SHOWCASE 2018 #1. Philip Johnson, Joey Esposito, Sanya Anwar, Ryan Cady, Magdalene Visaggio and Robert Li show off their skills by throwing you favourite DC heroes, such as Batman, Wonder Woman, John Constantine, Zatanna and Catwoman into scenarios only they could deliver. Be sure to look out for more work featuring these fresh, creative minds.

The 50th anniversary of the Planet of the Apes franchise is nearly at a close, but you can still celebrate it with a copy of PLANET OF APES SIMIAN AGE #1. Matt Kindt, Jeff Jensen, Matt Smith and Jared Cullum tell stories from between Apes films, both new and old, one featuring a soldier in General Ursus' army, with another set just before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, starring Koba and his early struggles to stay loyal to Caesar.

Emi Lenox return to draw the world of Jeff Lemire's Black Hammer universe with BLACK HAMMER CTHU-LOUISE. Spawned by the emissary of a Cthulu god, poor Cthu-Louise is relentlessly teased and bullied at school due to her terrifying appearance, pushing her find a way, any way possible, to look normal.

Mike Mignola and a slew of other Hellboy veterans return to tell some wonderfully wintry tales in HELLBOY WINTER SPECIAL 2018. A New Year's Eve seance goes wrong when Hellboy visits a family's English home, then dive into a BPRD: Vampire tie-in story before finishing it off with a bout of Lobster Johnson. Christmas might be a boiler down here, but this is the book you need to cool yourself down, so don't miss it.

Taking a page (almost literally) from Deadpool's book, Spawn doesn't think killing the universe once was enough, so now he's back to do it all again with SPAWN KILLS EVERYONE TOO #1 (OF 4). As cute as a Skottie Young illustration and 100 times more deadly, Todd McFarlane and Will Robson won't leave a single survivor in their wake.

Another digital exclusive series makes it paperrific debut with CLOAK AND DAGGER MPGN TP SHADES OF GREY, from Dennis Hopeless and David Messina. Tyrone and Tandy have stalked the streets of New York for years as Cloak and Dagger. Recently, they have drifted apart, but now a new threat reunites them, but price for their reunion may be high.

Get a rare look into the earliest days of John Allison's smash-hit Giant Days series with GIANT DAYS EARLY REGISTRATION TP. Completely written and drawn by Allison himself during his self-publishing days, before Boom! Studio's brought it to the greater world at large, see where the origin of Daisy, Esther and Susan's friendship began.

Set before she managed to free herself from the abusive Clown Prince of Crime, HARLEY LOVES JOKER BY PAUL DINI HC returns to the days when Harley Quinn was inseparable from the Joker. But despite her dedication to Mistah J, Harley still managed to make mistakes, like revealing the whereabouts of his secret hideout! Harley will have her work cut out to make this one up to her lover, and the Dark Knight isn't gonna make it any easier on her.

A new, magical book filled with fun for all ages hits the shelves with HEX VET WITCHES IN TRAINING ORIGINAL GN VOL 01, written and drawn by Sam Davies. Got a creature, magical or mythical, that needs urgent medical care? Then the caring duo of Nan and Clarion have you covered, as they're training to be the best veterinarian witches that ever lived. When a magical rabbit comes into the clinic, with and injury and weird eyes, Nan and Clarion will have a chance to prove themselves worthy of their claim.

Natalie Nourigat left her life in Portland, Oregon behind to pursue her lifelong dream to develop a career in animation in Southern California. Despite all her research and preparation, living and working in California still managed to catch Natalie off-guard, and she presents her path, both the highs and the lows, to fulfilling her dream in I MOVED TO LOS ANGELES WORK ANIMATION ORIGINAL GN. If you've ever wished to work in animation, this book will help ready you for the challenges that lie ahead, and how to potentially overcome them.

Legendary filmmaker, Alejandro Jodorowsky, finally delivers a sequel to his cult classic film, El Topo, with SONS OF EL TOPO ORIGINAL GN HC VOL 01 CAIN. The infamous El Topo was a immoral, unethical bandit, until his journey through the desert brought to him religion and enlightenment. Now a man of God, Topo leaves his first son, Cain, behind and pursues a better life, eventually bringing another son, Abel, into the world. Driven by hatred against the father who abandoned him, Cain looks to have his revenge.

The ceremonious 50th issue of the ongoing Star Wars series (and you thought it would fail) is collected amongst others in STAR WARS TP VOL 09 HOPE DIES. This is where a New Hope was leading towards: a secret base for the Rebellion, a secret army and a chance for victory. A final assault is coming... but too bad Darth Vader has managed to find out everything the rebels were planning! How will the rebels dig themselves out of this mess... will this be the event that leaves the Rebels shattered and scattered at the start of Empire?

Judd Winick and Joshua Middleton's landmark team-up between the Big Red S and the Big Red Cheese is finally back in print with SUPERMAN SHAZAM FIRST THUNDER DLX ED HC, just in time for the upcoming Shazam movie. Superman is trying to stop a cult from relieving a museum of a very precious artifact, whilst Captain Marvel tackles gigantic robots in Fawcett City, but soon events will converge to provide the eager readers with the most spectacular team-up in all of comicdom! The DC Gods are giving you a second chance to collect this seminal miniseries, don't waste it.

For almost as long as Bruce Wayne has been Batman, Alfred Pennyworth has been his constant ally in his war on crime. Usually just a voice in Batman's ear, Melbourne writer Tom Taylor and Otto Schmidt reverse the usual formula in BATMAN ANNUAL #3, showing us a night in the Bat's life, from Alfred's perspective. With Bruce putting his life on the line once more, find out the true toll this takes on his father figure and mentor.

From the backup pages of Exit Stage Left to her own one shot story, check out SASQUATCH DETECTIVE #1 to learn about the formative days of LA's #1 detective: Tonya Lightfoot, sasquatch. Brandee Stillwell and Ron Randall take you through her childhood, brought up on golf, tennis and episodes of CSI, and the time spent inbetween being mischievous. But a few pranks too many forces her out into the city of LA, where she'll find her way as an officer of the law.

After a long absence, the lore of the world famous card game returns to comics with MAGIC THE GATHERING CHANDRA #1. Pyromancer Chandra Nalaar takes control of her life after tragedy and makes her own way in the world, fighting against threats both new and old, whilst coming to terms with her own heavy feelings of guilt.

A mystical, new series from Gabe Soria and Gideon Kendall debuts with MEGA GHOST #1 (OF 5). Living in the haunted Dunwich Heights was hard enough for Martin Magus, junior occultist, but when he takes possession of a magical ring during his investigation into the unknown, he'll find himself commanding... Mega Ghost. A giant supernatural robot is now at Magus' disposal to help him fight the scary inhabitants of the dark.

The main story of Rick Remender's crooked, alcoholic Fear Agent may be over, but the universe is far larger than Heath Huston, so see what else is transpiring in FEAR AGENT FINAL ED TP VOL 04. With other creators tackling Remender's world, such as Chris Burnham, Rafael Albuquerque Gerry Duggan and many more, see a brand new side of an old world.

W. Maxwell Prince and Martin Morazzo's anthology of sweet, scary horror returns for four more grisly stories in ICE CREAM MAN TP VOL 02 STRANGE NEAPOLITAN. Prepare yourself for such spooky tales as: a falling man; three-flavoured silent meditation; a young girl's quest with her dead bestie and a whole heap of suburban emergencies. If that wasn't enough, you'll also learn more about the Ice Cream Man, his past and his connection to the dark cowboy, Caleb.

Accalimed cartoonist, Sergio Ponchione, has been inspired by a multitude of comic book creators throughout his life. In tribute to them, he presents MEMORABILIA SC, a love letter to the influences of his past, that straddles between reality and fantasy. There's no real way to describe it, you'll have to pick up a copy to get the full effect.

A excellent list of releases and that's just the tip of this week's greatest.
Spot something else you need, just make sure to let us know before close on Tuesday night and we'll get it sorted.
Until we see you next, have a great week, live life and read comics.

New Comics For Wednesday 5th of December



DECEMBER! It's here and you know what that means...COMICS...we guess.
This week is extra special with not only a great week of release, the next Women's Comic Book Club this Sunday and the very special Signing/Meet & Greet event with new Image writer, Mat Groom for the release of his new comic, SELF MADE #1 on Saturday from midday. 

Sydney-sider Matt Groom debuts a new series from Image with SELF MADE #1, Eduardo Ferigato on art duties. The Kingdom of Arcadia is ravaged by chaos, and amongst it, a warrior known as Amala Citlali, will seize her chance to become more than she was destined for. But in doing so, it may bring her face-to-face with the being she calls... God.
If this book really takes your fancy, don't forget Saturday where Matt Groom will be here in the store himself, signing copies of this premiere issue.

SHAZAM!! The name that makes thunder roll and lightning flash returns to comics with Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham's SHAZAM #1! Having been mysteriously quiet since DC Rebirth, Billy Batson, the original Captain Marvel, returns as the Big Red Cheese in his first ongoing series in 20 years, just in time to find out what Dr. Sivana and Mr. Mind are up in the Rock of Eternity. At last, Shazam is amongst us once more, and the Shazam family will be right there with him. 

Doctor Strange is dead, the Marvel Universe will never be the same. Bruce Banner is demanding answers in Al Ewing and Simone Di Meo's DEFENDERS IMMORTAL HULK #1, and he's going to find them, whether the Immortal Hulk within him wants to or not.

Like a broken record, Namor, the ocean king, has declared war on the surface world in the pages of the Avengers, but a war require allies. Experience Namor's search for fellow warriors in DEFENDERS NAMOR #1, from Chip Zdarsky and Carlos Magno, which guarantees a journey through the wondrous world beneath the waters of the Marvel Universe.

Before he would rise up to steal the throne of Wakanda, and mark himself as the Black Panther's nemesis, Erik Killmonger was a boy named N'Jadaka. In KILLMONGER #1 (OF 5), see the actions that steal N'Jadaka from his home country and place him on the path of deadly vengeance for the childhood he never had.

With only six more months until the ultimate cinematic portrayal of the mighty Marvel characters in the untitled Infinity War sequel, you better get your hands on MARVELS AVENGERS UNTITLED PRELUDE #1 (OF 3). When we last saw our heroes, Thanos managed to wipe out half the population of the universe, but now you can see what led to those events, as moments from the film are recreated in true comic book fashion.

The yuletide season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than with the MERRY X-MEN HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1. Featuring the work of creators such as Chris Sims, Marco Failla and many more, enjoy twenty-five Christmas stories, one for each day of December until Christmas. Have fun finding out how Magneto celebrates Hanukkah, how Rogue and Gambit's first Christmas as husband and wife goes and if Jubilee really is the master mall navigator for all your shopping needs.

The Jedi maverick with the face of Liam Neeson stars in STAR WARS AGE REPUBLIC QUI-GON JINN #1, from Jody Houser and Cory Smith, finally expanding a little on the past of the mysterious Qui-Gon Jinn. Always at odds with the wishes and agenda of the Jedi Council, preventing his own seat upon it, Jinn will have to face the consequences of his non-conformity when a mission goes awry.

James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes has experienced more hardship in one lifetime than most, but having been redeemed himself, he believes in second chances. Now Bucky embarks on a new mission in WINTER SOLDIER #1, from Kyle Higgins and Rod Reis, to find those in need of a second chance, but he'll learn along the way that there are as many people out there undeserving of redemption as there are those who do.

The extermination is over, but not all survived. Nathan Summers, the man called Cable, is dead and no-one is taking that harder than his adopted daughter, Hope Summers. Will Hope be led down a dark path in X-MEN EXTERMINATED #1, from Zac Thompson, Neil Edwards and co, or can Jean Grey keep her on the straight and narrow? Plus, a bonus story from Cable's past, by none other than Chris Claremont himself!

Step back to a time where life thrived on Mars in Steve Orlando and Riley Rossmo's MARTIAN MANHUNTER #1 (OF 12), where J'onn J'onnz was not the man you thought he'd be. He's a lawman for his people, sure, but he's one mean, green, corrupt bastard with a badge, and not afraid to abuse it. It's a cruel twist, full of controversy, watch as events unfold that present to him a second chance, the chance to become the hero he is today.

Award-winning writer, Nnedi Okorafor, begins her modern story of immigration in LAGUARDIA #1, set on an alternate Earth where aliens have integrated into human society. Future Chukwuebuka, a pregnant, Nigerian-American doctor, has smuggled an illegal plant lifeform, called the Letme Live, through LaGuardia International Airport. Safely back in her grandmother's flat in the Bronx, but immigration is still on their backs as they try to live in the land of the free.

Big time comics writer, Keiron Gillen, teams up with artist Stephanie Hans on her first ongoing comic with DIE #1. Described by Gillen as "Goth Jumanji", a group of forty-something adults find themselves faced with the return of an unearthly, supernatural horror they barely survived as teenage role-playing gamers. Will they fare any better a second time? Or is their demise an inevitability? Check out the first, oversized issue to embark upon a quest to find the answers.

A new series debuts with FREEZE #1, where the entire human population is frozen to a standstill... except for one man. Ray is the only one with the power to unfreeze people, but he faces a moral and ethical dilemma: does everyone deserve to be saved? Not only that, but can he trace the origin of this event to its source as well?

Mark Millar and Raphael Albuquerque tackle the trope of the "Boring Invincible Hero" in PRODIGY #1 (OF 6), by mixing in several shades of gray. Edison Crane is a prodigy, being the smartest man in the world and the world's greatest businessman. But it isn't enough for him, he craves challenges. So when international governments come to him to solve their unsolvable problems, he'll finally be able enjoy the challenge he relishes.

His old flame controls the city's criminals, his ex-partner in crime has gone straight and become a detective and that's only the beginning in GOLDFISH TP, not just written, but illustrated by Brian Michael Bendis.

With the forces of good and evil after him, he'll need to turn to his long-lost, part-demon daughter, Tala. But can he rely on a father/daughter relationship to get him out of his latest mess?

It's thirteenth century England, and within the Sherwood Forest lies Robin Hood, formerly Robert Godwinson, and his band of Merry Men. In MERRY MEN COMPLETE TP,  the nefarious Prince John has outlawed homosexuality in his empire, and his law is enforced by the Sheriff of Nottingham, which scholars believe could be the reason the legend of Robin Hood came to be.
