Here it is folks, this week's list of new books.
What can you see yourself trying this week?
Mutants have the closest thing to a perfect life anyone could ask for in the Age of X-Man, but all good things must come to an end, and so they do with AGE OF X-MAN OMEGA #1, from Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler and Simone Buonfantino. As that inevitable conclusion draws closer and closer, the X-Men must decide what they stand for.
When Len Wein and Dave Cockrum produced the first issue of Giant-Sized X-Men, they revolutionised Marvel's merry mutants, diversifying American comics unlike ever before. Now, you can relive the moment it all came together with the GIANT SIZED X-MEN #1 FACSIMILE EDITION, which sees Professor X form a new team of international X-Men. Featuring: Banshee, Cyclops, Colossus, Storm, Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Sunfire and Wolverine; they must be ready to become teammates to rescue the original team from the walking island called Krakoa.
The God of Mischief gets his own ongoing series from Daniel Kibblesmith and Oscar Bazalduar, beginning with LOKI #1. Having died a horrible death (again) during the War of the Realms, Loki learns that to be a destructive warlord, one mustn't get caught. But with new responsibilities heaped upon him, it'll be harder than ever for Loki to be a villain as Thor is sticking around to ensure Loki lives up to his purpose.
Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley's real-time Spider-Man story continues into the new millennium with SPIDER-MAN LIFE STORY #5 (OF 6), and while some events as we know them have changed in the progression of time, some things stay the same. The Vietnam War has passed, Peter has fought in the Secret Wars, but now the wars are going to be more personal than ever before, this time... it's Civil War! Peter didn't fair well in the original, will a lifetime's experiences change the result for the better, or worse?
Gotham has always been Batman's city, but now Tom King and Tony Daniel rip it away from him as Bane finally takes over with BATMAN #75 YOTV THE OFFER. With Bruce on a spiritual journey to become the fighter Batman needs to be to defeat Bane, his enemies are given the free reign they crave, so long as they pledge loyalty to man who broke the Bat. After three years of excellent comic books, everything Tom King has been working towards begins here. Plus, how has Lex Luthor's offer of Doom thrown Gotham into further chaos?
More Young Animal books are coming our way, with the next one being COLLAPSER #1 (OF 6), a new miniseries from Mikey Way and Ilias Kyriazis. Liam James has the weight of the world on his shoulders, his anxiety making him question everything about his life, from his job to his girlfriend. The only thing he does enjoy is his weekly DJ gig, one night where he doesn't have to sweat life. But when he receives a black hole in the mail (as you do), he'll suddenly be launched into a life of celebrity and fame, as well as a cosmic conflict, that he couldn't be prepared for. What is the mystery of this black hole?
After the gritty realism of Lois Lane's new book, you might need to kick back and have some laughs with Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber's SUPERMANS PAL JIMMY OLSEN #1 (OF 12)! From classic turtle transformations to never before revealed information about the Olsen family, Jimmy will end up in Gotham to figure out why he's been killed. It's more than just a weird day for you or I, but for Jimmy Olsen, it's just another day of being Superman's Pal.
If you've been enjoying the Superman and Batman content from the Walmart 100 Page Giants, then you'll love what Amanda Connor, Jimmy Palmiotti and Chad Hardin have in store for you in WONDER WOMAN COME BACK TO ME #1 (OF 6). After being recruited to test an experimental aircraft, Steve Trevor has gone missing, and now Diana Prince, as Wonder Woman, has set out to find him, with Etta Candy along for the ride.
Seth MacFarlane's sci-fi/Star Trek satire, the Orville, has captured the hearts of many a fan, and now it's coming to a comic store near you with ORVILLE NEW BEGINNINGS #1, from David Goodman, David Cabeza and Michael Atiyeh. In this debut issue, Ed and Gordon find a century-old buoy from an old Union starship to investigate, while back onboard the Orville, Bortus is trying to enrol his son into school, despite his son only being a few months old. From TV show to comic book, none of the charm nor quirkyness has been lost in translation.
This July marks 50 years since Vampirella's humble debut back in 1969, which makes it the perfect time for a new ongoing series, beginning with VAMPIRELLA#1, from Christopher Priest and Ergun Gunduz. Even after five decades, she doesn't look like she's aged a day, and she's lost none of her shine, either.
With this year being Vampirella's 50th anniversary, Dynamite has taken a page out of Marvel's facsimile book and reproduced her debut comic book with VAMPIRELLA #1 1969 REPLICA ED, from Forrest Ackerman, Nicola Cuti, Don Glut and more. Reprinted in its original, magazine size, and including the originals ads from 1969, this is the best way to get acquainted with the Daughter of Draculon.
Need more Vampires in your week?
One of Roy Thomas and Mike Mignola's finest works of art is now available for you to enjoy in BRAM STOKERS DRACULA TP, now in a more convenient paperback edition. One of his last works before his famous "Hellboy" mythology was introduced to the world, this edition comes with all-new colouring work, which enhances Mignola's original art like never before.
Now what about now Mignola? After fifteen years of BPRD comics and 25 years of Hellboy, Mike Mignola and Laurence Campbell brings it all to a world-shattering conclusion within the pages of BPRD DEVIL YOU KNOW TP VOL 03 RAGNA ROK. How does it all end, is there any leeway for future stories? If you want to find out... you"ll have to come in and buy a copy for yourself.
From the husband and wife duo of Walter and Louise Simonson, with Jon Muth and Kent Williams on art, see how Wolverine gets on with his romantic rival's younger brother in HAVOK AND WOLVERINE TP MELTDOWN NEW PTG. When Logan and Alex Summers get ambushed by Russian terrorists whilst on holiday in Mexico, they'll team up as Wolverine and Havok to bring those trying to destroy the West to their knees.
Miles Morales is back as Spider-Man in a new ongoing series, and now the first issues have been collected together with MILES MORALES TP VOL 01 STRAIGHT OUT OF BROOKLYN, from award-winning writer Saladin Ahmed and Javi Garron. It's not easy trying to balance school, superheroics and family, but it's only about to more difficult for Miles, as the Rhino hits up Brooklyn for criminal action. But why does he have minions now? Also, who is the new villain troubling Spider-Man, and what makes him one of the most dangerous foes Miles has faced? All that, plus see how Miles enjoys a day off from school when he can't be bothered going to class. Stay in school, kids, stay in school.
You've stuck with us for four issues, now you'll find your reward waiting as Darcy Van Poelgeest and Ian Bertram's miniseries reaches its conclusion with LITTLE BIRD #5 (OF 5). Little Bird's people thought their number was up, but an unexpected alliance may see the war between the Canadian Resistance and Bishop's religious rule finally end. But will this sudden twist be enough, or is it already too late for Little Bird and her kind.
At the beginning of the 21st century, Eldon Tyrell and his Tyrell Corporation advanced humanoid robotics to an unprecedented level. These were called replicants. The Nexus-type replicant, almost identical to humans, was made to be superior to its creators, yet confined to slavery. But they could not be forcibly subjugated. Following a mutiny that ended in bloodshed, replicants were banned on Earth, and a special police unit was assembled to combat them. They are called Blade Runners.
When one replicant is a suspect behind the kidnapping of the wife and child of a billionaire, it will be up to veteran Blade Runner Ash to retire it by any means necessary, in BLADE RUNNER 2019 #1, from Blade Runner 2049 co-writer Michael Green, Mike Johnson and Andres Guinaldo.
This is only the beginning of the expansion of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner universe.
From Josh Blaylock, Kit Caoagas and many more industry talents, comes the TALK BERNIE TO ME BERNIE SANDERS SPECIAL ONE SHOT, a one-shot comic that tells stories inspired by the man who inspires them: Democratic presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders. Plus, if you were a fan of the one-shot featuring NYC congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, then you'll love the follow-up and poster that's included as well. Can American politics get any cooler?
You'll feel a lot luckier in love after you check out Fred Chao's THIS LOVE SO BRIEF ONE SHOT. Full of short stories about Chao's hilarious experiences with his various crushes and short-lived relationships, from his school days to adulthood. While you see these stories play out, you'll experience themes about growing up, growing responsibilities, life changes, nostalgia and what it means to be home.
At Cherryton Academy, all the students are anthropomorphic beasties, but while most students can contain their innate behaviours, it looks like one may have lost control in Paru Itagaki's BEASTARS GN VOL 01. A herbivore student on campus has been killed, and the suspicions of their fellow herbivores immediately turns towards their carnivore classmates, specifically... Legosi, a large wolf! But Legosi claims he wouldn't hurt a fly, so who is the true suspect in this sordid affair?
Inio Asano's unusual manga story of an alien invasion in Tokyo continues as the humans start to gain the upper hand in DEAD DEAD DEMONS DEDEDEDE DESTRUCTION GN VOL 06. With the collaboration between the SES and Self-Defence Forces yielding the fantastic, Invader-slaying Hujin Type 9s, it looks like humanity will survive this incursion after all. Amongst all this action, Kadode has opened her apartment to one of the Invaders, and is getting used to the abnormal situation she finds herself in. With the threat of death hanging over the Invader, her great culinary skills help provide a distraction for the hunted prey.
In a world where evil runs amok, there is a secret organisation within the US Government dedicated to wiping it out in the latest book from Robert Kirkman, DIE DIE DIE TP VOL 01, featuring art from Chris Burnham. These secret agents conduct assassinations to influence events for the better, but they don't like to do it quick and clean, they like to have fun and make a real mess of things. If you love ultra-violence, swearing and nose-dismemberment, this is the book for you.
The urban-adventurous life of Sarah Gailey, her partner Stef Purenins and their four cats continues with OUR SUPER ADVENTURE HC VOL 02 VIDEO GAMES & PIZZA. Featuring a book filled to the brim with Gailey's web comics, now in print for the first time, watch as three more years of her life goes by playing video games, eating pizza and getting into all sorts of quirky, humorous misadventures.
George Takei has captured hearts all over the world, from his portrayal as lieutenant Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek, to his campaigning for equality around the world. But before he became the man we know, he was one of the many children who were detained in an interment camp when the US went to war against the Japanese in World War II. His story is harrowing and fearful and you can learn all about it in THEY CALLED US ENEMY TP, with artwork from Harmony Becker, which depicts the true enormity and gravity of the struggles of the American-Japanese citizens of the 1940s.
If you plan to conquer the universe and remake it in your image, you'll need to know what paths to follow and which pitfalls to avoid if you want to be the number bad guy on the block. Who better to impart such wisdom than the villain who got his bony old behind handed to him on a weekly basis? That's right, you can learn from the best of the worst, Skeletor himself, with WHAT WOULD SKELETOR DO HC, from Skeletor's representative, Mr. Robb Pearlman. By picking up this one, your one step closer to universal domination!
What a week. If you've spotted something you are keen on there, make sure to let us know before close Tuesday to stash it for you.
So until we see you next, have an awesome week, live life and read comics!
