Another week, full of great new reads and couple of re-packaged classics as well. Let's take a look.
Just like the Marvel Tales of old, you'll find some of Spider-Man's classic stories reprinted within MARVEL TALES SPIDER-MAN #1, featuring work from comic legends such as Stan Lee, John Romita Sr., Archie Goodwin, Don Heck, Al Milgrom and more. Within, you'll see: Spidey clash with Mysterio; the striking debut of Jessica Drew as the Spider-Woman, and round it out with a tale of the Black Cat trying to find Spider-Man in an event that will change her relationship with him forever.
Spinning out of the climactic conclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy #1, Donny Cates and Tradd Moore take you to where the former Herald of Galactus ended up after falling through the black hole in SILVER SURFER BLACK #1 (OF 5). In the face of oblivion, the Silver Surfer will not only have to fight the latest threat waiting to end him, he'll also need to prevent himself being lost to the great void of space.
Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley are back for the next installment in their ongoing, real-time, life adventure of Spider-Man with SPIDER-MAN LIFE STORY #4 (OF 6). It's the 1990s, the Cold War is heating up, and that's just another problem on the wearying mind of Peter Parker, as he must protect himself and his family from the madness that comes with a new war. This isn't the Spider-Man world you're used to, so all bets are off in this one; anything can, and will, happen.
Since Action Comics, Brian Michael Bendis has been setting up a huge conspiracy through the Leviathan group to give the Man of Steel, and the DC Universe (or is that Metaverse now?), a challenge unlike any other before, and now all that setup starts to pay dividends with EVENT LEVIATHAN #1 (OF 6), featuring art from Alex Maleev. As Leviathan spreads it's influence across the entire world, who is and who isn't Leviathan? You may never see your favourite heroes the same way again afterwards.
Before she was Red Sonja, our favourite, red-headed badass, she was the wild and untamed Sonja of Red, and now you can learn more about her early days in Luke Lieberman and Sergio Davila's RED SONJA BIRTH OF SHE DEVIL #1. Alongisde her mentor, Ozzyus, Sonja will have to stand against the horror of the demon conqueror, Raka, and his devil's brew to control the minds of men who drink it.
Celebrating fifteen years since the release of the original series of Ride, Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard, the award-winning duo behind Plastic, continue the story with a miniseries beginning with RIDE BURNING DESIRE #1 (OF 5). Following her 15 year prison sentence on a plea for murder, Samantha Vega, a former Atlanta PD detective, now works as a bouncer at an erotic dance club. It's not much, but Vega might soon have a lot less if her enemies come after her now she's free. If all that wasn't exciting enough for you, then you'll have to stay for the Adam Hughes backup that accompanies the main story.
In a new series from David Hine and Brian Haberlin, a planet known as the Promised Land for two different people had lead to war in SONATA #1. The Rans were lovers of peace, but their hand was forced by the warrior race of Tayans, and now they'll fight until only one race is left standing. But despite all this conflict. did either side check if there was anything else inhabiting their supposedly Promised Land?
After five successful seasons of televisual goodness, TMNT co-creator, Kevin Eastman and Ciro Nieli present the ART OF TMNT HC, an artbook looking at the work done on the CGI Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series that aired on Nickelodeon. From early concept sketches and background paintings to showcasing the work done on the CGI characters, this is the perfect book for you fans of not just the TMNT, but of animation as well.
From the team that brought you Avengers: No Surrender: Al Ewing, Sean Izaakse, Paco Medina, Mark Waid and Jim Zub, comes their latest combined effort starring the Earth's Mightiest Heroes, all conveniently collected in AVENGERS TP NO ROAD HOME. With night falling across the universe, a team of Avengers you know and love, and one member of the team you wouldn't expect, set off to bring back the light. If you've read Savage Avengers, and are dying to know how Conan the Barbarian is part of the team, this is a must-read.
To celebrate the efforts of their cover artists, DC Comics launches a new series of publications that presents the art of these creators, starting with Stanley "Artgerm" Lau with DC POSTER PORTFOLIO STANLEY ARTGERM LAU TP. Featuring 20 of Artgerm's most distinguished covers, starring your favourite DC characters, like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, this is a great way to experience the work of Artgerm if you missed out on the original comic book cover.
With the landmark release of Detective Comics #1000, a slew of DC's best creative minds came together to present a series of anthology stories looking at why we love Batman. But if you missed out on the single issue, never fear, for now you can instead get yourself a copy of DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 DELUXE ED HC, which collects everything from the original release. But, if you think you've got that single issue and don't need the deluxe edition, think again, for this edition also includes a bonus story from Robert Venditti and Steven Segovia.
Following on from the conclusion of Dark Nights: Metal, Robert Venditti and Bryan Hitch weave what may well be the definitive Hawkman story with HAWKMAN TP VOL 01 AWAKENING. Carter Hall has lived a multitude of lives, on Earth, Thanagar, even the Microverse, but he's never been able to remember living them. That's all about to change as Hall starts Indiana Jones-ing his way around the globe, learning more about his past than ever before, to combat the threat of the Deathbringers.
When he made his first, full debut in Incredible Hulk #181, Wolverine and Hulk were fierce enemies. Now the two are teaming up in Greg Pak, Ario Anindito and Guiu Vilanova's HULKVERINES TP, as the dreaded Weapon H finally clashes with his two progenitors. Are two heads better than one? Or are two heads merged into one going to reign superior? You'll have to pick this one up to find out.
A very cute and very sweet re-imagining of Mary Jane Watson and Peter Parker's high school days comes completely collected after being out of print for far too long in SPIDER-MAN LOVES MARY JANE GN TP REAL THING, from Sean McKeever and Takeshi Miyazawa. MJ is in the middle of enduring high school, and she has Harry Osborn, Liz Allan with her boyfriend Flash Thompson, plus that shy, young Mr. Parker, along with her. But what many don't see is her secret crush on the masked webslinger, Spider-Man! Is this a crush that is pure fantasy? Or can it flourish and become something more?
This week, the House of El unites as Kara Zor-El comes to her cousin's aid in Marc Andreyko and Kevin Maguire's SUPERGIRL #31. Together, Supergirl, Superman, Superboy and Jor-El will need to work together to banish the destroyer of Krypton... Rogol Zar! Will Kara finally be able to avenge her home city of Kandor? Plus, find out how Kara will react to finding Jon's sudden aging.
If you like the sound of what's happening up above, but you aren't picking up Supergirl, never fear, for Brian Michael Bendis and Ivan Reis give you the fight between the House of El and Rogol Zarr from Superman's point of view with SUPERMAN #12. The truth about Zarr's part in the conspiracy to destroy Krypton may finally be revealed.
For many years, you good readers have trusted us to tell you all about the best comics hitting the shelves, so let us catch you once again with TRUST FALL #1, from Christopher Sebela and Chris Visions. Ash Parsons has a gift for teleportation, and she's been raised to use it to provide for the family, no matter how illegal the means. But while Ash can teleport anything, like money, gold and accomplices, she can't teleport herself, so she has to trust in her family to catch her when she falls.
W. Maxwell Prince and Martin Morazzo are back with four more strange, sad stories of fantastic proportions with ICE CREAM MAN TP VOL 03 HOPSCOTCH MELANGE. Within those four anthology tales, you'll also learn more about the shady backstory of the dreaded, eponymous Ice Cream Man, and his ties to the dark cowboy, Caleb.
College relationships are always tough to navigate, but a spare a thought for Kim Reaper, who also has to deal with the supernatural on top of that. You can find out about Kim's troubles first hand in Sarah Graley's KIM REAPER TP VOL 02 VAMPIRE ISLAND, where her grim reaper boss is making her work overtime, her girlfriend's roommate never seems to leave the happy couple alone, and now she's on an awkward group date to Vampire Island. But a chance encounter with an old friend on the island will drag Kim into a vampire feud she's not prepared for... what's a grim reaper-in-training to do?
That's a lot of Spidey this week! Happen to see something else here you are after, just let us know before close on Tuesday and we get it sorted for you.
So until we see you next, have a great week, live life and read comics.
