New Comics For Wednesday 25th March


Well these are interesting times, huh?
Let's try something normal for a little bit with one thing that never changes, the best damn new comics review list around! 

On this week's stop in the tour of the Marvel Universe's heroic history, we go back to the Human Torch's ten year high school reunion in FANTASTIC FOUR MARVELS SNAPSHOT #1, from Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer and Benjamin Dewey. In this throwback to the solo Human Torch stories of the Silver Age, see what happens when Johnny Storm returns home for the first time in a long time, through the eyes of his old flame, Doris Evans, and reporter Marcia Hardesty. From ex-supervillains and strange souvenirs to a weenie roast on the beach and the lovable Inhuman Lockjaw, this story has it all.

In this next issue of Giant-Size X-Men, the artistic styling of Alan Davis and the amazing Nightcrawler receive the spotlight in GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1 NIGHTCRAWLER, written by Jonathan Hickman. When the X-Men lose contact with the Greymalkin Habitat, it's up to Nightcrawler to lead a team to find out why the habitat has gone dark.

When Professor X and Magneto created Krakoa, it was to be a home to all mutants, the good... and the bad. For a while, it was unknown what should be done with the worst of the worst, but it seems Mr. Sinister has the answer. He's decided to take his own selection of them, including Scalphunter, Wild Child, Empath, Nanny, Orphanmaker, Psyclocke and even Havok, and mold them into his own team, the Hellions. Find out whether this experiment is a failure or a success in HELLIONS #1 DX, from Zeb Wells and Stephen Segovia.

After fantastic facsimiles of Incredible Hulk #180 and #181, Marvel completes the story line spread across these issues with INCREDIBLE HULK #182 FACSIMILE EDITION, from Len Wein and Herb Trimpe. Wolverine has failed to stop the Hulk in a three way battle with the Wendigo, and Wolvie's bosses have decided to step in and clean up his mess, which only leads to an even bigger mess, courtesy of the dastardly duo of Hammer and Anvil. Don't miss out on this thrilling conclusion or the original ads from the 70s reprinted inside.

The march towards Marvel's spring (that's autumn for us) event, Empyre, begins with ROAD TO EMPYRE KREE SKRULL WAR #1, from Robbie Thompson, Mattia De Iulis and Javier Rodriguez. As conflict begins to renew itself and ramp up between the Skrulls and the Kree, the Warner family, in actuality an outcast family of Skrulls, must figure out what this will mean for the future of their race. Get caught up on the millenia long feud between these two alien races in this one issue, and be prepared for Empyre.

In the latest Transformers comic book crossover, the future of the Earth is doomed to be dominated by a force of robots, but which ones: the Decepticons or the T-800s? Find out which race of robots will be the chief threat in TRANSFORMERS VS TERMINATOR #1, from David Mariotte, Alex Milne and more. Or can the Autobots defeat both and ensure the continued safety of the human race?

The inspiration meets the inspired in Jeff Lemire and Michael Walsh's BLACK HAMMER JUSTICE LEAGUE HAMMER OF JUSTICE HC, which sees the heroes of Lemire's Black Hammer Universe meet the World's Greatest Superheroes of DC Comics, the Justice League. When an unusual man arrives at both the Black Hammer Farm and the city of Metropolis simultaneously, both parallel worlds are under threat from the might of the evil Starro, the Conqueror. It's going to take the combined might of the Black Hammer and Justice League teams to save both their worlds.

Doctor Victor von Doom is a man who is used to unlimited resources of power, wealth and influence, so how does he fare when all of these things are stripped away from him? That's just what Christopher Cantwell and Salvador Larroca are exploring in DOCTOR DOOM TP VOL 01 POTTERSVILLE, after an act of terrorism that costs many lives leaves Doom the prime suspect, and for once, he is actually innocent of the crime. Will the evil doctor manage to clear his name, or has his time finally run out?

After having it too good for too long, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev cranks up the heat and wipes out the intelligence services of the DC Universe in the espionage thriller that is EVENT LEVIATHAN HC. With the secret services all across the globe left in ruins, its up to Lois Lane to lead some of the world's greatest detectives, including Batman, the Question, Green Arrow, Plastic Man and Manhunter, in a mission to discover who is behind this nefarious organisation; who is Leviathan?

Carly Usdin and Nina Vakeuva return to bring you the next volume in their story all about cool teen girl vigilantes and rock bands with HEAVY VINYL TP VOL 02 Y2K-O. Chris is still living the teenage dream, working at a record store, fighting for justice in a vigilante group and rocking the crowds with her music in an all-girl band. But it's 1999, and with the year 2000 looming, the people are panicked by the supposedly impending doom that will be caused by Y2K. With this in mind, a shadowy corporation plans to use this fear to wipe out digital music once and for all, and its up to Chris and her band to stop them, while also competing for glory in the Battle of the Bands.

The X-Men are the present heroes of mutantkind, but the future of mutants will lie in the hands of a team of the freshest mutants in Krakoa, the New Mutants. A mix of classic members, such as Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik and Cypher, and new members, including Chamber and Mondo, unite in the pages of NEW MUTANTS BY HICKMAN TP VOL 01, from Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brisson and Rod Reis, and they'll need each other to find an old friend, Cannonball.

Keiron Gillen and Dan Mora's story of urban fantasy mixed with a bit of Arthurian legend arrives in trade paperback format with ONCE & FUTURE TP VOL 01. A group of Nationalists have decided to cleanse their country by reviving a villain from the times of King Arthur, but even they can't control this ancient evil. Ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire used to take out monsters like these for breakfast, but now in her later years, she's decided to at last pass her mantle over to her grandson, Duncan, a museum curator with no idea that monsters exist. To stave off this terror, Duncan has one hell of a learning curve before him.

One of the most evil forces in the TMNT universe, the Shredder, may have finally met his match and lost his life for it against the Turtles, but that isn't going to keep Oroku Saki down. Trapped in the depths of hell, Saki will fight his way through hordes of demons and other supernatural foes in TMNT SHREDDER IN HELL TP from Mateus Santolouco, for a chance to survive and to learn the truth about his very soul.


Mathias Lincoln once had ambition to be a judge, but now he's happy as a courier for Mega City One's elite citizens. But that comfortable lifestyle might come to an end after he accidentally uncovers a conspiracy that stretches from the ruling powers of the Mega City to the Cursed Earth in JUDGE DREDD FALSE WITNESS #1, from Brandon Easton and Kei Zama. Now Judge Dredd and his team are after Mathias, but will Dredd be able to learn the truth before he arrests or executes a potentially innocent man?

The next era of all ages Avengers adventures begins with MARVEL ACTION AVENGERS (2020) #1, from Katie Cook and Butch K. Mapa. In this fun-filled return, be ready for the comedic misadventures that await when the Mighty Thor goes antiquing with the most unlikely of superhero partners, Ant-Man. How does this uncertain trip into stores filled with antiquities play into the ongoing schemes of the God of Mischief, Loki?

When you take a human warrior from the 5th century and fling him into the future and bond him with a sentient alien armor, you get the exciting new series of X-O MANOWAR (2020) #1, from Dennis Hallum and Emilio Laiso. Aric of Dacia combines with the armor called Shanhara to become the X-O Manowar, and the two are needed together more than ever before to face a new threat.

Following the fall of Anthropocene, the surviving human population retreated underground and built a biological utopia. But when teenaged bioengineering prodigy, Tenn Gavrilo, proposes a solution to regrow the natural environment on the planet, society will be thrown into chaos in NO ONES ROSE #1, from Emily Horn, Zac Thompson and Alberto Jiminez-Albuquerque. Can humanity continue to enjoy their green paradise, or will their utopia be torn down around them in the ensuing chaos?

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... actually a bird? That's right, everyone, Ducktropolis' arrogant superhero is trying to save the day in SUPER DUCK #1 (OF 4), from Frank Tieri, Ian Flynn and Ryan Jampole. But after three years of routinely foiling the schemes of billionaire Dapper Duck, Super Duck has fallen on hard times, and scraping together a living through comic convention. However, his luck may finally be changing after a rival of Dapper Duck's employs him as a bodyguard. What could possibly go wrong?

With an unstoppable killer hot on her trail, Izzy Tyburn has accepted that the world doesn't want her in it. But, in return, Izzy isn't going to leave anything of herself for the world in COFFIN BOUND TP VOL 01, from Dan Watters and Dani. Retreading the tracks of her life, Izzy is replacing her previous presence with nothing but burned rubber, ash and the sun-scorched bones of anyone who tries to stop her. If you missed out on this one in the singles, now check out the 4-issue series complete in this trade paperback edition.

The teen murder mystery genre take a much darker turn in DEAD END KIDS TP, from Frank Gogol and Nenad Cvitcanin. Four friends, Ben, Murphy, Tank and Amanda, don't have a lot going for them in life, but they at least have each other. Or at least, had each other. After Ben is murdered, it's up to his three remaining friends to figure out who the cold-blooded killer is, and also stay out of his cross-hairs.

While a lot of medical issues tend to be serious in nature, Nick Seluk presents to the reader with a love of medical comedies, such as Scrubs, HOW I BROKE UP WITH MY COLON GN. Within are 24 strange, mysterious and hilarious medical cases, involving illnesses, freakish injuries and things being found in X-Rays of the toe.
