New Comics For Wednesday 20th November



This week is insane. Just a small example how crazy it is, Marvel is releasing not one but two mini event books...and that's just to begin with. Get your hiking gear ready because there is a mountain of books in this week's list!

80 years ago, Timely Comics printed Marvel Comics #1, and a universe was born. 80 years from now, that universe is about to end, and it all begins with 2099 ALPHA #1, from Nick Spencer and Viktor Bogdanovic. The future leads towards ruin in 2099, but in this event, something is about to happen that will change the future of the Marvel Universe you know and love, forever.

Ever since Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman partnered up on Venom, they've been setting up a killer of a Carnage story, and now that story reaches its ultimate climax with ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #5 (OF 5) AC. The battles have been fought, the war is nearly over, and only Venom and Carnage still stand for one last bout, the one that will decide whether or not absolute carnage descends.

Captain Marvel is about to face one of her most dangerous opponents yet... her own pet cat, Chewie! Why, you may ask? Because in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 AC, from Emily Lerner and Andrea Broccardo, Chewie has gone full Carnage, and Carol is the only one with a chance to put her cat back to the way they should be.

Something's brewing in the Negative Zone, and no-one in the Marvel Universe is going to be ready for it. But that isn't going to stop Nova from doing his very best to try in ANNIHILATION SCOURGE ALPHA #1, from Matthew Rosenberg and Juanan Ramirez. With the Silver Surfer, Beta Ray Bill and the inimitable Fantastic Four on his side, could Nova actually succeed in stopping the new threat before it becomes another event-level disaster?

Get ready for a new era of the Merc with a Mouth when Marvel mainstays Kelly Thompson and Chris Bachalo bring you DEADPOOL #1, a great place to jump on if you've been looking at getting a monthly dose of Deadpool. Wade Wilson is out on his latest mercenary job: to take down the self-proclaimed King of Monsters, and his claim on his new kingdom, Staten Island. Will Deadpool stick to his guns, or will he give diplomacy a chance?

Heroes are few and far between in the year 2099, and that future is ruled by Doom. So what team would be better for four superheroes to emulate than Marvel's first family, the Fantastic Four? That's precisely what a new quartet of heroes has decided to do in FANTASTIC FOUR 2099 #1, by Karla Pacheco and Steven Cummings, but can they work together as well as their predecessors did?

The long path to cover the three year gap between Star Wars: A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back is finally filled with Greg Pak and Phil Noto's STAR WARS #75. In this final issue, find out if C-3PO can save the rocky people of K43; how much of Luke's secret plan has been discovered by the evil Darth Vader, and can the Rebels at last set up a new secret base? Many answers await in this, the very last issue of Marvel's rejuvenated Star Wars ongoing series.

Get to know the lineage of Mr. Freeze, and his strange connection to the Wayne family, better than ever before in Sean Murphy's White Knight universe with BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT PRESENTS VON FREEZE #1, from Murphy himself, and Klaus Janson. As Victor Fries helps Martha Wayne through a difficult birth, he distracts Thomas Wayne with the story of his ancestor, the scientist Baron von Fries, and Fries' research partner, Jacob Smithenstein. How do all these disparate characters connect to one another in this unique world, carefully crafted and tempered by Sean Murphy?

Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams are renowned for their highlighting of social issues during their groundbreaking run on Green Lantern and Green Arrow, but one issue stood above the rest. That issue, which tackled the sensitive issue of drugs and their effects on the youth of America, is now reprinted with the same shocking cover and all with GREEN LANTERN #85 FACSIMILE EDITION. Don't miss out on a slice of shocking comics history, and take a chance to reflect on how comic books were beginning to tackle more modern social issues.

If there's once concept DC Comics has mastered, it's stories involving a multiverse. Now, Tim Seeley and Dan Fraga bring that concept to He-Man and his world with HE MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE #1 (OF 6), which will bring together various era of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and unite them in a struggle against the scourge of Anti-Eternia.

Ever since he bonded with the mysterious, powerful Scarab, Jaime Reyes has been doing his best to live up to the past legacies of the Blue Beetle and be the hero the world needs. But after the Batman Who Laughs set his sights on him in INFECTED SCARAB #1, from Dennis Hopeless and Freddie Williams II, the goodness will be corrupted into darkness. Does Jaime have any hope of fighting off the evil growing within him, or will his friends and family pay the price for Blue Beetle's fall from grace?

What superhero has been away from the spotlight too long and is finally getting his own book? That is the Question, and that book is QUESTION THE DEATHS OF VIC SAGE #1 (OF 4), from Jeff Lemire, Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz. Vic Sage has a black and white outlook on his life, righting wrongs his own way as the faceless vigilante, the Question, but his latest investigations are about to reveal the various shades of grey that shadow Hub City, and may hide the secrets to death and rebirth.

How far will social outcast Eva go to become one of the popular people? That is the question at the heart of HEARTBEAT #1 (OF 5), the start of a new miniseries from Maria Llovet. While feeling estranged from her fellow high school students, Eva learns a terrible secret: Donatien, the most popular boy at school, loves the taste of blood, and will kill whoever he has to for his next hit. Has Eva finally found her way to popularity, and is she willing to betray her morals to walk the path?

Celebrate Christmas with your favourite two bizarre assassins, Hazel and Cha Cha, in HAZEL & CHA CHA SAVE CHRISTMAS TALES UMBRELLA ACADEMY, from Gerard Way and Tommy Lee Edwards. Find out what happens when they're tasked to take care of a time agent who has gone rogue and stumble on a plot designed to ruin Christmas for everyone. Be sure to have this one on your order so you don't miss out on some Christmas cheer, done the Umbrella Academy way.

While our Glorious Ladies of Wrestling are used to duking it out with their foes in the wrestling ring, their latest combatant is unlike anyone they've fought before: a news anchor! It's a whole new sport for the ladies to get used to in GLOW VS THE BABYFACE #1, from Aimee Garcia, AJ Mendez and Hannah Templer, as they fight in the ring of public opinion and primetime news, with the news anchor claims that GLOW and their ilk are a bad influence on children across the nation.

Teenage romance and publicly-feared superpowers headline a brand new series from Shawn Kittleson and Eric Zawadzki, which kicks off with HEART ATTACK #1. America is home to a group of superpowered people, called Variants, all thanks to a side effect of gene therapy designed to cure disease. Now, these variants are treated inhumanely, with any and all human rights revoked, but the new generation of Variants aren't going to take it lying down. Charlie North, who's on the run from the police, runs into Jill Kearney, and their instant attraction triggers the activation of their latent Variant powers. How far will they go in using their powers, and will it be to fight for the rights of all Variants, or only for their own lives?

Father and son writing duo, Tony and Curt Pires teams up with artists Alex Diotto and Dee Cunniffe to tell a story of a young boy who's favourite superhero literally jumps out of the page in OLYMPIA #1 (OF 5). Elon is a kid who is obsessed with the superhero, Olympian, and it seems his dreams come true after Olympion comes off the page of his comic, and is lying wounded in Elon's bedroom. But while Elon patches Olympian up, he discovers that something else came through with the superhero, something... evil.

The enduring masterpiece from Darwyn Cooke, New Frontier, comes complete at last, and in the most deluxe of formats with ABSOLUTE NEW FRONTIER 15 ANNIV ED HC. Collecting the complete miniseries, along with all bonus materials, such as sketches, alternate story pages and annotations, as well as the New Frontier Special, this is the definitive collection of the modern classic that showcases the fall of DC's Golden Age of Superheroes, and the rise of the Silver Age that succeeded it, as they embarked on a new frontier.

Get the inside scoop on the behind the scenes action of one of 2019's biggest cinematic events with AVENGERS ENDGAME ART OF MOVIE HC SLIPCASE. Eleni Roussos takes you through an extensive array of concept art, script notes, production designs and more that will make you appreciate the creators and the film of Avengers: Endgame like nothing else can.

Just in time for its landmark 30th anniversary, Dennis O'Neil and Jerry Ordway's spectacular adaptation of Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film that redefined the summer blockbuster, with the BATMAN THE 1989 MOVIE ADAPTATION HC DLX ED. A faithful retelling of the events of the movie, this deluxe hardcover also features high quality scans of Ordway's black and white, original art work, letting you see even the finest of details that sets his artwork above the best.

Just when Darkseid is on the cusp of grasping the Anti-Life equation after centuries in pursuit of it, a grave miscalculation on his part unleashes something far worse that the equation could ever have wrought: a techno-organic virus that leaks into the DC Universe and turns everyone, super or not, into mindless zombies. That's what lies in wait for you in DCEASED HC, from Tom Taylor, and a slew of artists, including Trevor Hairsine, Stefano Guadiano, Darick Robertson, Laura Braga and more.
We highly recommend you purchase this one physically, lest a digital copy turns you into one of the infected.

Gou Tanabe continues his manga adaptation of Lovecraft's science-fiction/horror novella with HP LOVECRAFTS AT MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS TP VOL 02. The duo of Dyer and Danforth, belonging to the Miskatonic University research team, have flown their way up to the Antarctic Mountains, and find the alien city that hides within them. It is here, in this city, that the pair will learn the dark, hidden secrets of life on Earth, but will they be able to escape to warn the rest of mankind? Or will they succumb to madness well before they can try?

Get yourself up to date with Al Ewing and Joe Bennett's highly acclaimed, Eisner-nominated series with IMMORTAL HULK TP VOL 05 BREAKER OF WORLDS. General Fortean has had no luck capturing the Immortal Hulk, and now he's taking off the kid gloves and ready to throw everything he has at the monster. Except now, that monster is working with other monsters, and they're ready to give as good as they get, and that might be more than the good general can handle. Also, find out how immortal the Immortal Hulk truly is as we get a look at billions of years into the future.

After an excellent adaptation of Joe Hill's cautionary anti-superhero story, Jason Ciaramella and Zach Howard return with a miniseries that fills in some gaps in the story with JOE HILL THE CAPE FALLEN HC. Taking place during the three days the corrupted Eric was missing, find out what heinous atrocities he will perform as the Cape before he finally commits himself to take down the mother and brother he felt always let him down.

With only six more weeks until the ultimate cinematic saga comes to its conclusion, you can prepare yourself for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with the JOURNEY STAR WARS RISE SKYWALKER ALLEGIANCE TP VOL 01, from Ethan Sacks and Luke Ross. A prequel set before Episode IX, the Resistance is in need of allies and resources, which involves General Leia Organa and Rey to reach out to the Mon Calamari, while Finn and Poe hunt for a weapons cache on Avedot, unaware that there are bounty hunters with their sights set on them for a huge payday.

In Lilah Sturges and Polterink's LUMBERJANES ORIGINAL GN VOL 02 SHAPE FRIENDSHIP, the titular Lumberjanes think they've found new friends in the magical creatures called the Pookas. However, they're caught unawares when the Pookas take over each of the campers' identities so they need no longer hide from the world, but this leaves our heroines without their memories. Now they must remember who they were so they can reclaim their lives before the Pookas take over in every way.

With a TV series on the way, and a trilogy of award-winning video games already available, now is the perfect time to check out the WITCHER OMNIBUS TP VOL 01, which features three full miniseries and a one-shot special starring the hero of Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy novels, Geralt, the Witcher. With other bonus materials, including sketches from artists such as Stan Sakai, Dan Panosian, Dave Johnson, and a cover from Mike Mignola, this is the perfect Witcher collection, and a great Christmas gift for the fan who's nearest and dearest to you.

Travel to the 41st century, with your guides Dan Abnett and Juan Jose Ryp, in RAI (2019) #1. Valiant's resident cyborg ronin is travelling to the future to save it in a thrilling quest that spans more than just the centuries, but millenia as well. If you love robots, blood and high octane violence, don't pass this one up.

The sons of the world's finest, Superboy and Robin, embark on more crazy, hilarious adventures in ADVENTURES OF THE SUPER SONS TP VOL 02 LITTLE MONS, from Peter J Tomasi, Carlo Barberi and more. Superboy and Robin are trapped in an intergalactic juvenile delinquent facility, and there seems to be no escape. Except, maybe, for the meanest, youngest Green Lantern they've ever seen. Or youngest Green Lantern trainee... who knows? But isn't all easy sailing, for Joker Jr. returns and that's when things get really rough.

Get an inside look at the life of the European master artist, Rembrandt, with ART MASTERS SERIES GN VOL 08 REMBRANDT, written and illustrated by Typex. By drawing from a variety of sources, Typex weaves a story that tells the life of Rembrandt, from being the son of a miller, to being a highly acclaimed artist, to winding up another poor man, a fate that many artists of his era faced. If you're a fan of Rembrandt, or your curious about the era in general, this is the book for you.

Hiroaki Samura's epic manga, set during the Tokugawa Shogunate, reaches its bone-crunching conclusion with BLADE OF IMMORTAL OMNIBUS TP VOL 10. Rin's quest is nearly at an end, and it won't be a pretty one, as fallen Edo officer Habaki faces down the devious Anotsu, whilst Rin and Manga witness the end of an era. You may need a box of tissues to go with the ending in this one.

Did you really think that Rick Deckard chasing Roy Batty's merry band of replicants was the only thing happening in Los Angeles, November 2019? Guess again, as Michael Green, Mike Johnson and Andres Guinaldo present BLADE RUNNER 2019 TP VOL 01 WELCOME TO LOS ANGELES, the first officially canon comic miniseries set in Ridley Scott's awe-inspiring world of Blade Runner. There's a replicant conspiracy at play in LA, and it's up to blade runner Ashina to retire it before it gets outs of hand.

While he didn't know it, Spencer Dales was born into a world of magic, and his father was one of the magicians behind the curtain, bettering the lives of others. Now, in EXCELLENCE TP VOL 01, from Brandon Thomas and Khary Randolph, Spencer begins to follow in his father's footsteps, and joins the magical society, Aegis, to do so. But Spencer can only see an old system in need of an overhaul, and he'll need whatever help he can get to help him rebel and reinvent it.

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have had many collaborations together, but their Kill or Be Killed series stands heads and shoulders above the rest, and now you can own the complete 20 issue series with KILL OR BE KILLED DLX ED HC. In one sitting, you can track the journey of grad student Dylan, who must kill one person a month, someone who deserves it. But the longer this goes on, the more people Dylan starts to see as worthy of his killer actions.

Martial arts meets mechanized cyborg limbs in LEVIUS EST GN VOL 01, from Haruhisa Nakata. Levius was a young, upcoming fighter in the world of mechanized martial arts, but his injuries are in a critical state, while his trainer is also injured, not to mention AJ, a fellow fighter, has been imprisoned, considered a weapon of mass destruction. But the arrival of a new fighter may signal a new era of the sport, however, her arrival may also signal incoming doom and destruction.

The epic story of warfare in the future, between the oppressive American Empire and a band of resistance fighters, is told through the viewpoint of one of the young rebel fighters in LITTLE BIRD FIGHT FOR ELDERS HOPE HC, from Darcy Van Poelgeest and Ian Bertram. How far will she, the young resistance fighter, go in order to protect her people and their freedoms, and what will they ultimately cost?

Abel's journey through the mid-west to deal with the troubles of his unsettling family legacy continues in MIDDLEWEST TP BOOK 02, from Skottie Young and Jorge Corona. As Abel and his companion, Fox, visit familiar places in the middlewest, they'll both learn that the land hides more secrets than anyone knew.

Following the highly popular Witch Boy and Hidden Witch graphic novels, Molly Knox Ostertag's magical world reaches a thrilling conclusion in MIDWINTER WITCH GN VOL 03. With the Midwinter Festival incoming, Aster feels his excitement increase as it approaches, looking forward to taking part in it himself as a witch, and show the world who he really is, but can he bring himself to defy long-held traditions?

But that's not all the magic we have in store for you this week, as Kelly Thompson and Veronica Fish's SABRINA TEENAGE WITCH TP VOL 01 arrives too! Sabrina is a teenage witch, living with her aunts Hilda and Zelda, and trying to balance her lives as both a high school student and a future sorceress. Can she navigate love interests, rivalries and potential new best friends while also saving her high school and town from all types of supernatural events?

While we take our human behaviours for granted, as we experience and present them every day, they make an interesting piece of entertainment for the aliens living on Strange Planet. In Nathan Pyle's STRANGE PLANET HC, these cute little fellows re-enact the odd behaviours that humans have towards their everyday situations, and gives us a chance to take a step back and analyse the way we all interact with the strange world that's around us, and those odd people living in it.

New Comics For Wednesday 13th November


Ready yourselves for another great week of comics because it's a big one!

While other books in the Dawn of X are pushing forward mutantkind and their social rights, Bryan Hill and Szymon Kudranski's FALLEN ANGELS #1 DX is a far more personal story of revenge. In this brave new world for mutants, Psylocke is uncertain of her place in it, but soon finds a purpose after someone from her past reappears, only to be murdered soon after. Now Psylocke is out for vengeance, with Cable and X-23 joining her on a mission that may threaten this new age of mutantdom.

Celebrations for Marvel's 80th anniversary may be drawing to a close, but that doesn't mean there aren't a few gems left to come out, one of which is MARVEL TALES DOCTOR STRANGE #1. Inside, you'll find three of the best Doctor Strange comics from yesteryear, including his first ever appearance by creator Steve Ditko, written by Stan Lee. Following on, Roy Thomas and Dan Adkins' deep dive into Doctor Strange's origin and his first fight as a sorcerer against the dreaded Nightmare. To round off this nice little package is a story from Chris Claremont and Marshall Rogers, which teams up Strange with his on/off love interest, Clea, against the nefarious Nicodemus.

With a movie waiting in the wings, now is the best time to get into the story of Marvel's living vampire with MORBIUS #1, the start of a new ongoing series from Vita Ayala and Marcelo Ferreira. For many years, Michael Morbius has been trying to find a cure for his condition and return to being a regular human. Currently, he is on the cusp of the discovery that will make it all a reality, but to finally grasp the solution, he must overcome a path of danger that may end his life before he can fix it.

Garth Ennis, the creator who made the Punisher who he is today, is back for another MAX-rated, blood-soaked miniseries, with PUNISHER SOVIET #1 (OF 6), featuring art from Jacen Burrows. Before the dreaded Punisher lies a dozen Russian mobsters, all of them exterminated with extreme prejudice. But Frank Castle didn't kill a single one of them. While some appreciate a bit of help, the Punisher is not one of those people, and he now awaits a conflict with the perpetrator, who may be looking, not to partner up with the Punisher, but to replace him altogether. By any means necessary.

Witness the first appearance of Blade, the Daywalking vampire slayer with the TOMB OF DRACULA #10 FACSIMILE EDITION, from Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan. But this isn't just Blade's first appearance, it also begins the decades spanning rivalry between Blade and his most fearsome nemesis, the dreaded Dracula. If you've been tempted to check out Marvel's original Dracula comic, don't miss out on this retro reprint, which features not just the original story, but original ads from the era too.

Joe Hill's Hill House Comics horror imprint at DC continues with a new miniseries beginning with DOLLHOUSE FAMILY #1 (OF 6), from Mike Carey, Peter Gross and Vince Locke. It's Alice's sixth birthday, and out of all the presents she's received, it's the unexpected dollhouse from her dying great aunt that turns out to be her favourite of all. That's because this antique dollhouse, filled with a family of antique dolls, comes to life whenever Alice steps inside; but she must always return home to a more complicated family life. Sensing her pain, the dollhouse presents a dark, scary room that claims to have a solution to all of Alice's problems. But can it be trusted?

Don't think that only Hill House Comics is getting some love this week, for the Young Animal imprint also gets a new release this week, with the Green Lantern miniseries FAR SECTOR #1 (OF 12), from award-winning author NK Jemisin, in her comics debut, and Jamal Campbell, the acclaimed artist from Naomi. The City Enduring has known peace for half a millennium, which makes it seem an easy beat for new Green Lantern, Sojourner 'Jo' Mullein, who's been in the job six months. But that peace is about to be shattered as this maxiseries begins; can Jo restore it as the Green Lantern?

The Blackest Night event was a dark enough tale of the DC Universe, now you can find out just how much darker it could have gotten with TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE BLACKEST NIGHT #1, from Tim Seeley, Kyle Hotz and Dexter Vine. Down in the Dark Multiverse, the events played out the same, except for one key difference: the Black Lanterns won! Now, twenty-three days later, very few survive, one of whom is Sinestro, who is the Limbo Lantern: not quite a White Lantern, and not quite a Black Lantern, but caught in between. Can he save all of existence, or will he end it all to end his own suffering?

In most stories, when the protagonist leaves the regular world for a magical one, the real world is left behind. But superstar creators Matt Kindt and Matt Smith turn that concept on its head in FOLKLORDS #1 (OF 5), when Ansel finds technology and tailored suits from his regular world bleeding into his fantasy land. To have the visions of his world explained, Ansel sets off on a quest to seek out the legendary Folklords, but to seek them out is a capital crime. Will Ansel really risk his own life to find a way to stay permanently in a world he doesn't really belong in?
  
Cutter Kinseeker's quest may have concluded in the last Elfquest series, but that only kickstarted a new journey for his brother in all but blood, the stargazer elf, Skywise. Now you can see Skywise's adventures begin in ELFQUEST STARGAZERS HUNT #1 (OF 6), from Wendy & Richard Pini and Sonny Strait, following a tragic accident that involved his daughter, Jink. Skywise now charts a course through unknown space, in search of the World of Two Moons, and he may learn some inconvenient truths about his friend Cutter along the way.
  
You know it's a great week for comics when Jeff Lemire is one of the creators on a book, and even better when it's a brand new, first issue, which is exactly what you get with FAMILY TREE #1, with art from Phil Hester, Ryan Cody and Eric Gapstur. In this new series, an eight year old girl suddenly starts to transform into a tree, which pushes her mother and potentially insane grandfather to travel the back roads of America to find a cure. But while they get further away from their daughter and granddaughter, nefarious forces are getting closer to her, to either destroy her or utilise her for their own evil purposes.

But that isn't all, folks, for the week only gets better, as Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso return with a brand new arc of their popular Prohibition-era supernatural series, Moonshine, with MOONSHINE #13. Afflicted by a curse that turns him into a werewolf, Torpedo Lou Pirlo has made it to New Orleans, thanks to his girlfriend, Delia, to find the elusive cure. But cures don't come cheap, and Lou's a little light in the cash department, so it's time for him to put his best hustling skills to practice so he can afford his humanity once again.

At long last, Alan Moore's creative overhaul of Swamp Thing from the 80s that put him on the map receives the Absolute deluxe treatment with ABSOLUTE SWAMP THING HC VOL 01 BY ALAN MOORE. Featuring art from an array of artists, including Stephen R. Bissette and Rick Veitch, you can re-experience Moore's bold storytelling, and the changes he introduced into the Swamp Thing mythology that have persevered to this day. Not to mention, the art looks more glorious than ever, with a complete recolour that only enhances an already fantastic era of comics. If you've never read this run of comics, don't pass up a copy of this one.

One of the most popular characters from Firefly, Saffron, is back on the Serenity, but she isn't there for Malcolm Reynolds, she's there to recruit any women willing to join her on her latest heist, which has personal ramifications for all of them. That's the story of FIREFLY STING ORIGINAL GN HC, from Delilah S. Dawson, and a team of artists, including Pius Bak, French Carlomagno and more, with each artist illustrating the point of view of a different character.

It's a Flash origin for the modern era in FLASH YEAR ONE HC, from Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter. Barry Allen, as a forensic scientist, is instrumental in catching criminals, but always after they've committed the crime and hurt others. But, after a bolt of lightning and a dousing of chemicals, Barry is empowered with speed, and now maybe he can prevent crimes, instead of just investigating them. Though these new powers may burn right through Barry before he can use them to save the world.

Experience the latest chapter in the lives of the Glorious Ladies of Wrestling in GLOW TP VOL 01 VERSUS THE STAR PRIMAS, from Tini Howard and Hannah Templer. For once, the ladies are ahead of schedule, and a wrestling-free weekend awaits them... until Sam ruins it all. Instead of relaxing, they'll all now be wrestling to fund their next event, and they're all ill-equipped to combat their foes: real lady wrestlers! Will all our favourite GLOWs make it through in one piece?

The beloved animated TV series may be over, but the adventure of Korra and friends continues with LEGEND OF KORRA TP PART 02 RUINS OF EMPIRE, from Michael Dimartino, Vivian Ng and Michelle Wong. Currently, the Earth Kingdom is in the midst of possible war, and their last hope may lie with the old friend Korra and Kuvira are attempting to convince to return to the fight. Will they succeed, or is a war now only a certainty?

When Wolverine, Punisher, Elektra, Venom, Doctor Voodoo and a wandering Conan the Barbarian form a team, they're not just the Avengers, they're the Savage Avengers! Find out how such an unlikely team could come to be in SAVAGE AVENGERS TP VOL 01 CITY OF SICKLES, from Gerry Duggan and Mike Deodato, then, after the introductions are complete, the savagery of the Marvel Universe will get cranked up to eleven.

The Marvel magnum opus from Tom King and Gabriel Walta finally receives a complete trade paperback edition with VISION COMPLETE COLLECTION TP. After many years of superheroics and trying to find his place among the his fellow heroes, the Vision has finally decided he needs a normal life, and built one... literally. But even with a family and home crafted with his own two artificial hands, Vision's peace and contentment will be broken by the forces always outside of his control. If you still haven't read this modern masterpiece, this is the time to finally get onboard.

When a cosmic threat arrives on Earth in the winter of 1887, the fate of the world lies with a young girl and a package she needs to deliver in BLACK STARS ABOVE #1, from Lonnie Nadler and Jenna Cha. The young girl is Eulalie Dubois, who works for her family's animal trapline business, and is mostly isolated from the world at large. But after she takes on the duty to deliver a package to a nameless town up north, her chance for freedom has at last arrived. Little does she know how important that package truly is.

This one is for all the fans of the King of Comics, Jack Kirby, as James Romberger brings you FOR REAL #1, which melds together two of the biggest battles Jack Kirby ever fought, and rendered in a style that homages his signature art style. The first battle is his cancer diagnosis, whilst the other is his harrowing experiences on the front lines of World War II, and you can see how they both were major impacts on his life. Along with an explanatory essay, find out how those two different events actually played out in Kirby's real life, and learn more about the King than you ever have before.

Hot off the success of his highly acclaimed limited series, Unnatural, Mirka Andolfo is back with a humorous look at heavenly and hellacious beings and their lives, especially their sex lives, with MIRKA ANDOLFOS UNSACRED #1. In this debut issue, Angelina is an angel and she's in love with the deviant devil, Damiano, and he in turn is in love with her. But while she doesn't want to give in to temptation, Damiano is more than up to the challenge to convince her otherwise.

Ever since she first saw Star Wars, Cecil Castellucci knew she was destined to be a creator of some kind, a path that led her to become an award-winning novelist and Eisner-nominated comic book writer. For the full recount of her journey, you have to check out GIRL ON FILM ORIGINAL GN, written by Castellucci herself, and illustrated by an array of unique artists, including Vicky Leta, Melissa Duffy, Jon Berg and V. Gagnon.

In the Flat Fields, Mimi and her companion, Bobo, enjoy a quiet, productive life, but that all changes after Mimi continues to have the same unsettling dream again and again. In an attempt to find peace, Mimi and Bobo journey into deep Evergreen Woods in MIMI & THE WOLVES GN VOL 01, from Alabaster Pizzo, to combat the dangerous creatures that hold the key behind her horrific dreams.

The incident with Mr. Higgins may be behind them, but evil forces are never ones to take a holiday, and so, the spooky duo of Professor Meinhardt and Mr. Knox are back for another investigation in OUR ENCOUNTERS EVIL PROFESSOR MEINHARDT & KNOX HC, from Mike Mignola and Warrick Cadwell. With vampire slayer Ms. Mary Van Sloan their ally, all three work together to tackle supernatural threats, including werewolves, vampires and other terrifying horrors of the night no-one has seen before.

Honda-san is back with more hilarious stories and anecdotes about working in a Japanese book store with SKULL-FACE BOOKSELLER HONDA-SAN GN VOL 02. First off, a gay couple from abroad task poor Honda-san with finding the right Japanese erotic manga, but which one could it be? If that wasn't stressful enough, let our beleaguered bookseller tell you all about the store sales fair and the fierce battles fought between the stores, and then top it off with what must be done with books that are considered morally harmful.

And there you have it. If you've spotted something of note you need us to reserve for you, just make sure to let us know before close of Tuesday to get it sorted for you.
So until we see you next, have a great week and live life and read comics.

New Comics For Wednesday 6th November


November!?! Get out of here! Yes, we care not for the end of the year coming around so quickly. The only thing we don't might the idea of is another new week of excellent releases...such as...

Rex Strickland, following a successful trial as the first sym-soldier, was given a highly classified mission from Nick Fury: to figure out the origins of the ancient symbiote, Grendel. Now in the present day, Carnage is carving up hell in New York City, and in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE WEAPON PLUS #1 AC, from Jed MacKay and Stefano Raffaele, Weapon H will pick up where Strickland left off in his mission to stop Carnage in his tracks.

The Dawn of X continues with NEW MUTANTS #1 DX, from mastermind Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brisson and Rod Reis, which reunites classic New Mutants members and adds some new friends into the mix. Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Cypher and Magik join forces with Chamber and Mondo to set off on new adventures, the first of which sees them go into space with none other than the Starjammers. 

Body swapping is a staple for some of the weirdest and greatest comic book stories, but Mariko Tamaki and Gurihiru take it to the next level with SPIDER-MAN & VENOM DOUBLE TROUBLE #1 (OF 4). When Spider-Man and Venom swap bodies, they must become begrudging allies and, dare we say, friends, in order to track down the person responsible for their untimely switch. If they're lucky, they might also be able to change back, but nothing is guaranteed.

With a mutant nation state finally realised through Krakoa, the X-Men need a way to maintain intelligence on the rest of the world, as well as a team of black-ops agents to perform the delicate, dangerous missions. Enter X-FORCE #1 DX, from Ben Percy and Joshua Cassara, as they work towards a world where X-Force is no longer necessary.

Traversing the galaxy in search of his next big payday, lone Ravager, Yondu "Mary Poppins" Udonta, finds himself the star of his own miniseries with YONDU #1 (OF 5), from Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler and John McCrea. On his travels, Yondu has stumbled across an artifact, an extremely dangerous weapon, and thinks he has hit the jackpot. But this payout isn't going to fall into his lap, for Yondu must now find a buyer, and there's a mercenary hunting him down, prepared to purchase the artifact himself, with Yondu's life as payment.

If you loved Roosterteeth's hit webseries, gen:Lock, and you're already after more of it, then look no further than GEN LOCK #1 (OF 7), from Collin Kelley, Carlo Barberi and more. The villainous conglomeration, known as the Union, has been at war against the forces of Polity to conquer the Earth. The only people that can stand against them are Dr. Weller and his group of gen:Lock soldiers, a group of individuals with the power to control mechanized suits called Holons. But now with Dr. Weller dead, can Julian Chase lead everyone into the fights to come?

Following the fallout of Green Lantern #12, Grant Morrison has shaken up the DC universe unlike anyone has before, and now the ramifications of Hal Jordan's actions are revealed in  GREEN LANTERN BLACKSTARS #1 (OF 3), featuring art from Xermanico. Throughout the galaxy, there is not a Green Lantern to be found, with the law enforced by the Blackstars, and their method is nowhere near as forgiving. Now there are three targets in their sights: Ysmault, Mogul and a little planet called Earth.

Billy Batson was a good kid, who came to love his foster family, and transforms into the mighty Shazam to fight the forces of evil. But all that is meaningless after an encounter with Batman Who Laughs, the results of that meeting presented to you in INFECTED KING SHAZAM #1, from Sina Grace and Joe Bennett. The brighter the picture, the darker the negative, and Billy casts a bright light, so when he's consumed by evil, how heinous will he become?

It's a bright future ahead for the DC Universe, and you can pack your bags and travel to it with Jon Kent, Superboy, in LEGION OF SUPER HEROES #1, from Brian Michael Bendis and Ryan Sook. In the 31st century, youngsters from across the cosmos represent their worlds as the Legion of Super-Heroes, prepared to stop the universe from making the same mistakes of the past. But it appears they have already broken a rule by adding Superboy to their roster, so what else may they be hiding?

It's the comic all the kids are after, it's TEEN TITANS GO GIANT #1, featuring a variety of new and old stories featuring the rambunctious team of youthful crime fighters: the Teen Titans Go! Sholly Fisch and Marcelo DiChiara start with a story that deals with Kory getting the hiccups, while Ivan Cohen and Sarah Leuver picks up the baton with a story featuring Beast Boy being elected the most popular of the heroes. If that isn't enough for you, you'll also get other stories reprinted from previous issues of Teen Titans Go!, making this the perfect place to either continue your reading, or to start your Teen Titans Go! journey.

One hundred years after the world was devastated by the event called the Plague That Ate Greed, young b.b. lives in a swamp, where she broadcasts her underground radio show to the community. But, tired of living under the thumb of her overbearing father, she's about to breakaway to freedom in B B FREE #1 (OF 12), from Gabby Rivera and Royal Dunlap. Now she's secured her release, she'll find out everything she's been told by her family may be a lie, and they'll pursue her to the ends of the Earth to make sure she doesn't learn the truth.

Lev Grossman returns to BOOM! for the next installment in the comic book adaptations of his popular Magicians series, which begins with MAGICIANS #1 (OF 5), from Grossman, Lilah Sturges and Pius Bak. With the previous class having graduated, a new generation of heroes and villains are admitted into Brakebills, with Dean Fogg allowing the attendance of hedge magicians, practitioners of unsanctioned magic, into the school for the first time. How will this new breed of students mingle in with the more traditional crowd?

From Dennis Culver and Justin Greenwood comes CRONE #1 (OF 5), a new miniseries best summed up as Old Lady Xena. The warrior woman who spent many decades as Bloody Bliss, protecting mankind from bloodshed at the hands of evil, has become the elderly recluse known only as Crone. But the lands are threatened once more by a new evil, but does this old soul still have what it takes to do what she does best one last time?

Just in time for the upcoming animated Addams Family movie comes ADDAMS FAMILY THE BODIES, a tie-in comic from Zoe Quinn and Philip Murphy. Whilst perusing the Addams family library looking for a grimoire, Wednesday Addams stumbles across a tome promising to deliver ultimate power to the young lady who reads it. Now, Wednesday is going to fulfill each ritual contained within to unlock that dark power for herself.

With a TV series well on its way, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, the original creators, unite to whet your appetite with LOCKE & KEY DOG DAYS. Inside are two brand new stories, Nailed It and Dog Days, as well as a sneak peek behind the scenes of the TV show, and a look at a brand new, upcoming comic book series from Hill and artist Martin Simmonds too.

After it walled itself off from the rest of the world thirty years ago, the United States of America became isolationist, and no-one has seen what became of the country and its people. That is until UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #1, from Scott Snyder, Charles Soule, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Daniele Orlandini, where a global pandemic forces the hand of the rest of the world to send a team to breach the walls of the lost United States, and as the search for the desperately needed solution, rediscover North America.

The acclaimed duo behind Joker and Batman: Damned, Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo, have their original series starring the madman of Metropolis, Lex Luthor himself, reprinted as LUTHOR TP. In the course of reading this series, you'll find out the depths to which Luthor will descend to just to put an end to the Man of Steel, and why he's kept at what seems to be an impossible, futile task.

If you're after a different take on Superman and his origins, then you can't pass up a copy of SUPERMAN YEAR ONE HC, from Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr. From the destruction of Krypton and growing up on the Kent farm on Smallville, to joining the Navy, to see the world both above and beneath the water, and finally donning the big red S in Metropolis, this is a Superman not of our world, but one that feels far closer to his original Golden Age incarnation.

Just when you returned to your resting heart rate and your adrenaline high ended after the first arc, Rick Remender and Bengal are back with a hair-raising, rip-roaring road trip, beginning with DEATH OR GLORY #6. Glory's father is nearly ready to receive his new liver, all that's left is for Glory herself to race all the way to the Mexican border. Sounds too simple? You're wrong! As she makes her way to her father, Glory will have to contend with all the criminals, killers, mobsters and her ex-husband to keep the liver, as well as her head.

You've already gotten to know Dragonfly and Dragonflyman, two versions of a hero across parallel worlds; one grim and gritty, one all camp and goofy. But we only saw them out of their element, trapped in each other's world, so see how amazing those two heroes truly are in DRAGONFLY & DRAGONFLYMAN #1 (OF 5), from Tom Peyer and Peter Krause. With Dragonfly in his dark surroundings, and Dragonflyman in a sparkling Metropolis, crime doesn't stand a chance when those two are home on their correct Earth.

If you thought Mos Eisley was a hive of scum and villainy, then you haven't heard of a little planet called: Heist! For those not in the know, Heist is home to billions of the most unscrupulous men and women in the Nehring System, and they're giving the Pan-Galactic government a terrible headache. So, in HEIST HOW TO STEAL A PLANET #1, from Paul Tobin and Arjuna Susini, Glane Breld and his band of galactic thieves and con artists are prepared to solve the problem in a way that would make Nicolas Cage proud: they're gonna steal the entire planet Heist.

In Spencer Desmond and Kristian Rossi's VOID WALKER #1, ordinary hitman, Parker Ingram, is about to have his pay grade upped after he bonds with an ancient alien organism and becomes the Voidwalker. Having recently survived an attempt on his life, Ingram is out for good old fashioned revenge, and he has power no-one can see coming. The whole universe quivers in fear as it awaits his wrath.

For nearly a century, superheroes have inspired us to be our best selves, as we've seen across an array of comics, movies and TV shows. Now, Shea Fontana and a variety of artists take you through the most inspirational of all the women, both super-powered and not, in the DC Universe with DC WOMEN OF ACTION HC. Gorgeously illustrated, with in-depth profiles on characters such as Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Supergirl and many more, this is your definitive guide to the wonderful women of DC Comics.

Your favourite video game heroines, Max and Chloe, are back for another emotional journey in LIFE IS STRANGE TP VOL 02, from Emma Vieceli, Andrea Izzo and Claudia Leonardi. Set three years after Life is Strange: Dust, Max finds herself in a new reality, one where some traumatic events from her past never happened. But the newfound peace she feels will not last, when a mysterious boy named Tristan starts to reveal the truth about this new world.

Three different, disparate people who have never known each other are about to start seeing a whole lot more of each other after a single phone call in the crime thriller NOVEMBER HC VOL 01 (OF 3), from Matt Fraction and Elsa Charretier. With a gun in a puddle, a helping of bad luck and a twist of fate, can these three victims of fate find their way out of the criminal underworld they've fallen into? But even if they do, will they still be the same people they were before?

In the 1970s and 1980s, masses of children were adopted from South Korea by foreign countries, with more than nine thousand moving to live in Sweden. One of those children was Lisa Wool-Rim Sjoblom, who recounts her experiences of a new life in Sweden, as well as her return to South Korea in PALIMPSEST GN. As Sjoblom returns to South Korea, she learns about the orphanage she stayed in, and how the story she was told about her adoption was not as simple as the heart-wrenching reality.

The gripping conclusion to Eldo Yoshimizu's manga homage to gangster films arrives with RYUKO TP VOL 02. Yakuza princess, Ryuko, has finally found the truth behind her mother's disappearance, just as she learns who her true enemy really is. While all these personal discoveries are coming to the fore, Ryuko must also navigate her way through the secret war happening in Japan's criminal underworld.

The line of Batman Black and White statues continues to grow with the BATMAN BLACK & WHITE STATUE BY JOE MADUREIRA, based on Madureira's muscular, ready-for-action posed Dark Knight from Justice League: Rebirth. Be sure to add this one to your collection, and don't let it slip through your fingers; your collection will thank you later.

A smashing week, we are sure you'll agree. Spot a special something extra there you are keen on, just make sure to drop us a note before close Tuesday night so we have time to adjust our paperwork.
So until we see you next, stay safe, life live and read comics!
