New Comics For Week Of Wednesday 10th June


Still feeling a little at a loss from DC's announcement the other day, let's focus on something good like say...a new shipment filled with massive DC releases!!!
What a truly strange time we find ourselves living in.


It's been far too long since our last adventure with the Caped Crusader, but now, Batman returns! There's a heist about to go down in Gotham City, courtesy of the villainous Designer, and you have a front row seat to the action with a copy of BATMAN #92, from James Tynion IV and Guillem March. Batman will do everything in his power to stop the villains of Gotham from winning, but first, he has to escape the most elaborate death trap the Riddler has ever devised.

From the masterminds behind the timeless Batman: The Animated Series comes one of the greatest revivals from the 90s with BATMAN THE ADVENTURES CONTINUE #1 (OF 6), from Paul Dini, Alan Burnett and Ty Templeton. In this exciting first issue, a giant robot attacks Gotham, and steals the whole room from a Wayne Enterprises laboratory, it's up to Batman to figure out who's behind it. Could it have anything to do with Lex Luthor's sudden arrival in Gotham City?

2019 may have been all about the Dark Knight, but 2020 is the year for the Clown Prince of Crime, and you can join in on the celebrations with a copy of JOKER 80TH ANNIV 100 PAGE SUPER SPECT #1. Featuring a spectacular line-up of creators, including Paul Dini, Mikel Janin, Scott Snyder, Jock and many more, enjoy a whole range of anthology stories that remind us all how much the Joker has impacted Gotham; it's heroes, it's villains and it's everyday citizens. If you love dark humour and colourful, Machiavellian villainy, this book will put a smile on your face.

Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet return to their fan-favourite, black magic, erotic-thriller comic book series with FAITHLESS II #1. Turin, Italy, already a hotspot for art, literature and high fashion, is also the place to be for all dark magic users, and no-one is benefiting from this more than Faith, along with her lover, Louis (actually the Devil) and his daughter Poppy (actually the Devil's daughter). But nothing in this life is free, and Faith is about to pay the price for her increased power, and not even she can find her way out of it.

How many reasons would you like to go check out ADVENTUREMAN #1? Reason 1: it's a brand new number one issue from our favourite creator-owned comic book publisher, Image. Reason 2: it's three times as long as your standard comic, and still features a 3.99 USD cover price. Reason 3: It's being helmed by writer Matt Fraction and the artistic superstar team of Rachel and Terry Dodson. Reason 4: It's all about a single mother, Claire, and her Adventurefan son, Tommy, igniting the spark of rebellion to take down an evil regime that started after the defeat of the original Adventureman eighty years ago. What else could you possibly ask for in a brand new first issue?

Darwyn Cooke was one of the greatest creators to ever grace the world of comics. He's best remembered for his work on superheroes, but his talent extended far beyond the genre. Nothing proves this better than his adaptations of Richard Stark's Parker crime novels, which finally get the deluxe treatment with PARKER MARTINI ED HC SLIPCASE VOL 01. In this slipcase hardcover edition, Cooke's first two Parker adaptations, the Hunter and the Outfit, as well as two short stories, the Man with the Getaway Face and the Seventh. In addition, you'll also get heaps of illustrations and sketches from Cooke, as well as a long form discussion on Parker and Richard Stark with Cooke, Ed Brubaker and Tom Spurgeon.

A team of five assassins have come to Gotham to claim the head of the Batman, which means you'll get to enjoy five killer stories revealing each character's motivations in BATMAN SECRET FILES #3, featuring creators such as James Tynion IV, Andie Tong, Vita Ayala, Mariko Tamaki and many more. Some characters you already know, such as Deathstroke, Cheshire and Merlyn, while others are brand new to superhero-bagging game, such as Mr. Teeth and Gunsmith. For a richer interpretation of Batman's current foes, don't miss this issue.

It's been a little while since issue one of Jonathan Hickman and Mike Huddleston's latest creator-owned series hit the shelves, but hopefully that's just gotten you more excited for the release of DECORUM #2. In a world full of contract killers, it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd. For our designated protagonist, she is renowned in the underworld circles for her good manner, and now she takes on the challenge of imparting her knowledge of decorum to an amateur killer.
  
It was only a matter of time before Rick Sanchez went to Hell, and now that time has arrived for both him and Morty in RICK AND MORTY GO TO HELL #1, from Ryan Ferrier and Constanza Oroza. In classic Rick style, even surrounded by the flames of Hell, all he can think about it dragging Morty along to find the man in charge and complain until they kick him out.

If the two part epic of Queen of the Black Coast wasn't enough to sate your desire for uncensored Conan the Barbarian adventures, then you can't go past a copy of CIMMERIAN RED NAILS #1, from Regis Hautiere and Didier Cassegrain. In the forests of Darfar, Conan has rented himself out as a mercenary to the highest bidder around, and soon finds himself working with fellow mercenary, Valeria. After the pair take down a dragon, something dreaded in an old city awaits them next.

The career of one made Mafia man is built on enough skeletons, so beneath three made men stands an entire mountain of them. In OLD HAUNTS #1, from Ollie Masters, Rob Williams and Laurence Campbell, watch as all three men are attacked by the ghosts of their past, as every secret sin they've tried to bury rises up from the dirt to pay them back more dearly.

If the last crossover between the Riverdale teens and the deadly Predators left you wanting more, then more is what you'll get with ARCHIE VS PREDATOR II TP VOL 01, from Alex De Campi, Kelly Fitzpatrick and Robert Hack. Picking up where the last series ended, Betty, Veronica and Predator-Archie (just go with us on this one), have returned to Riverdale, but with the town in ruins, there is no normal for them to return to. If that wasn't bad enough, the next wave of Predators are watching them from above.

Anyone who enjoys watching the sensational web series, Critical Role, would remember some amazing pieces of artwork featuring the characters from the fans playing before the show. Now, the very best of those artworks are collected for your enjoyment in CRITICAL ROLE HC VOL 01 CHRONICLES OF EXANDRIA MIG, featuring accompanying text from two of your favourite Critical Role cast members, Liam O'Brian and Taliesen Jaffe.

Matt Kindt and David Rubin return with the third series of their scientifically magical series Ether, with ETHER TP VOL 03 DISAPPEARANCE OF VIOLET BELL. The daughter of the Faerie King is missing, and only Boone Dias, a portal jumper, will have any chance of finding her. Putting together his forensic science skills with his knowledge of magical crimes, will he be able to find her in time?

Jeff Lemire's latest series about family and body horror quirkiness reaches trade paperback with FAMILY TREE TP VOL 01, with art from Phil Hester. When an eight year old girl inexplicably starts transforming into a tree, her single mother and potentially insane grandfather set off on a journey through the back roads of America in an attempt to find a cure. Will they find a cure, or is their journey mere folly?

It's 2036, and things are as dangerous and deadly as ever. In GENPET GN, young Nat Kanan, the son of a rich father, has been given a new bodyguard: the bio-engineered GenPet, and the timing couldn't be better. For Nat's father is being hunted by nasty criminals who want their debt repaid, and they have their sights set on the GenPet.

Comics writer Josh Trujillo teams with painter Nick Kennedy to present their debut children's book, LOST BEAST FOUND FRIEND HC. In a touching tale of friendship between two very different beings, Keelee is a young girl who comes across a purple, furry, fuzzy, funny beast, who is lost and doesn't know the way home. Can the two new friends find the way back to Beast's home?

Before he began a new life as Robin the Boy Wonder with Batman, Dick Grayson was the son of the Flying Graysons at Haly's Circus, and you can experience a little of what his old life was like in LOST CARNIVAL A DICK GRAYSON GRAPHIC NOVEL TP, from Michael Moreci and Sas Milledge. With the glamour of Haly's Circus fading, and the reputation of the new Lost Carnival growing, will Dick keep loyal to his family, or will he go out on his own to try something new?

For cat lovers and those who are tempted to try raising a cat of their own, you can't go past a copy of RASCAL HC GN, from Jean-Luc Deglin. Find out how a cat called Rascal changes the life of his new owner forever, and all the funny little adventures he get up to as he lives up to his mischievous name.

The latest miniseries from the acclaimed creator behind Giant Days and By Night, John Allison, is fully collected into a single volume with STEEPLE TP. Featuring two women who couldn't be more different, see how they begin the journey towards an unlikely friendship that will be forged in the fires of conflict. What at first was an investigation into the supernatural happenings at a sleepy coastal parish soon becomes a choice between the sides of good and evil for our heroines. Which will they choose?

Fresh from the move to IDW, Stan Sakai's rabbit ronin warrior, Usagi Miyamoto, has his latest stories brought to trade paperback format with USAGI YOJIMBO TP VOL 01 BUNRAKU & OTHER STORIES. The story begins with Bunraku, which sees Usagi caught up in a conspiracy involving puppets, and then continues with Usagi returning to his classic trade, working as a yojimbo for Lady Mura. If those two tales aren't enough, see Sakai's expansion on his original Usagi short, debut comic, The Goblin of Adachigahara, which was specially made for the 35th anniversary of the character.

With her 16th birthday upon her, Diana, Princess of Themyscira, believed it was finally time for her to join her sister Amazons as an equal, ready to fight for their home and way of life. But all that may be sidetracked in WONDER WOMAN TEMPEST TOSSED TP, from Laurie Anderson and Leila del Luca. When rafts of refugees mysteriously manage to pierce Paradise Island's barriers, Diana will disobey Themysciran customs to try and help the new arrivals. But trying to help them will lead Diana to a new world she is competely unfamiliar with. Can the future Wonder Woman find her way home?

Thanks to the deception of Gemworld's governing bodies, our young superheroes that comprise Young Justice find themselves journeying from one unknown Earth to another in the multiverse in YOUNG JUSTICE HC VOL 02 LOST IN THE MULTIVERSE, from Brian Michael Bendis, John Timms and many more. By the time they return home, new recruits arrive in the form of Naomi and the Wonder Twins, and that's only the beginning for the new adventures and mysteries of Young Justice.

If new comics aren't enough for you, we also have some brand new action figure with the release of X-MEN LEGENDS 6IN AF ASST 202001. Featuring six new figures from the legendary X-Men story, Age of Apocalypse, depicting Dark Beast, Jean Grey, Weapon X, X-Man, Morph and Wild Child, be sure to grab all six so you have all the parts you need to assemble this wave's build-a-figure, Mr. Sugar.

If there is something extra you are after make sure to get your requests to us before 5pm Monday to give us the best chance to secure you what you are after as we'll have limited shelf stock available.

So until we see you next, stay stay, live life and read comics!
