New Comics For Week Of Wednesday 24th June




A shipping list so full of interesting and exciting books, we did have time to do a write up for each of the ones we wanted to highlight!
Still, take a moment to check in with this week's list and see what you think for yourself.

With a long history behind him in comic books, one period that stands out for Captain America was the late 70s, when his co-creator Jack Kirby held the reigns on both art and story, producing the sensation Madbomb story line. Now, in the Marvels Snapshot series, Mark Russell, Ramon K. Perez and Kurt Busiek take you back to those Madbomb days with CAPTAIN AMERICA MARVELS SNAPSHOT #1, which zooms in and focuses on (pun intended) an everyday teenager from the South Bronx. With his neighbourhood wiped out from the first attack, will this teen stand for what is right, or will he salvage a chance for a future by becoming one of AIM's latest recruits?

Awaking from strange dreams, Tony Stark will have bigger things to worry about in EMPYRE AVENGERS #0, from Al Ewing and Pepe Larraz, as he and the Avengers set out to the Green Area of the Moon after they receive a distress signal from the Cotati. But will even an alliance between the Avengers and the Cotati be enough to stop the oncoming threat of the powerful Celestial Messiah?

Just when you thought Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino were finished with their take on the Batman and Joker with Killer Smile, they hit us with an unexpected epilogue: BATMAN THE SMILE KILLER #1. The Mr. Smiles Show was watched by kids everywhere, including a young Bruce Wayne, but was Bruce more than just another one of Mr. Smiles' viewers? Find out in this riveting, twist-fueled one-shot. 

Another classic DC superhero reaches their landmark 80th anniversary, and this time it's Green Lantern! For a giant-sized 100 page comic full of anthology stories told form across the history of Green Lanterns everywhere, be sure to grab a copy of GREEN LANTERN 80TH ANNIV SUPER SPECT #1, featuring the talents of Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis, Mariko Tamaki, Mike Grell, Dennis O'Neil, Rafa Sandoval and more. From the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, to Green Lantern Corps members Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and many, many more, there's a story for everyone's favourite incarnation.

The Necessary Evil story event reaches its epic conclusion with MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #50, from Ryan Parrott and Daniele Di Nicuolo. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Omega Rangers join forces with their allies to take down the Anointed once and for all, but if you think that's it for this issue, think again. A fan favourite character is about to return, and their identity will shock you when it's revealed.

In a new comic based on a horror novel from Stephen and Owen King, a sleeping sickness called Aurora has eclipsed the world, but it's somehow only affecting women, and it kicks off with SLEEPING BEAUTIES #1 (OF 10), from Rio Youers and Alison Sampson. The only lead anyone has towards solving this mystery is the potential Typhoid Mary, a woman known only as Eve, who is strangely unaffected by this sickness and leaves a trail of destruction in her wake. 

Bree Hale has left many things behind in her life, from the military to crime, and much more in between. But when it comes to family, she'll always put them first, which she proves first hand when a mob boss puts out a hit on her brother in DEAD BODY ROAD BAD BLOOD #1 (OF 6), from Justin Jordan, Ben Tiesma and Mat Lopes. You won't find a better, more action-packed story of revenge anywhere else.

Renowned for his colouring work on Criminal, Jacob Phillips takes on his first comic as a solo artist with the Texan-set, Neo-Western crime series THAT TEXAS BLOOD #1, teaming up with debutant writer Chris Condon. On veteran Sheriff Joe Bob Coates' 70th birthday, the hunt for a casserole dish will snowball into a tense, potentially deadly confrontation between the lawful and the lawless.

Last week saw the long-awaited release of the sequel to the Last of Us, Naughty Dog's hit video game, with the Last of Us Part II. and tsees the arrival of ART OF THE LAST OF US II HC, giving you an unparalleled look at the behind-the-scenes development art behind the game. Jam-packed with concept art and commentary from the creators, this is your definitive guide to all things Last of Us Part II, which will keep you immersed in the world of the game, even when you're not playing it.

Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen continue their acclaimed fantasy series with ASCENDER TP VOL 02. In their injurious escape attempt from planet Sampson, Andy is in the custody of the Militia, which means the murderous Mother can't be far away. While Andy is in trouble, his daughter Mila has done her best to stay hidden by booking passage on a ship, which also happens to helmed by Captain Tesla. If that wasn't exciting enough, get to know the deadliest vampire slayer in a galaxy dominated by vampires, it's Kanto the Blood Scrapper.

Rob Guillory's dark tale of country farmer Jedidiah Jenkins, whose stock in trade is growing human organs like grain crops, is trying to find the source of taint within his farm-grown organs, has a shocking, family-shattering secret revealed in FARMHAND TP VOL 03. What is the ultimate secret to be found in infectious corruption of the Jedidiah Seed?

When Ripley of the Roanoke scouts finds a treasure map, all the campers launch into their next adventure in LUMBERJANES TP VOL 14, from Shannon Watters, Dozerdraws and Kat Leyh. What is it that lies at the end of the treasure map's trail? The scouts hope for all sorts of things, from priceless jewels and bags of gold, to dinosaur bones and even more hidden treasure maps. The only way to know for sure is to check out a copy for yourself.

It's a common occurrence in comics for the Earth to need some saving, but how often does that responsibility get left to a little, old lady? If that's the scenario you've been waiting for in your apocalypse comic books, then you'll get just what you need with ASH & THORN #1, from Mariah McCourt and Soo Lee. Can the elderly Lottie Thorn, and her equally old trainer, Lady Peruvia Ashlington-Voss, accept this huge responsibility and save the world?

The far future is not what you expect in BLEED THEM DRY #1, from Hiroshi Koizumi and Dike Ruan. The year is 3333, the Earth is recovering from a devastating event, vampires are real beings and they've found a peaceful way to co-exist with humanity in the city of Asylum, a mega-city engineered by the Japanese. But that fragile peace may have reached it's end after a new spate of vampire slayings is discovered, and it's up to Detective Harper Halloway to solve the mystery and rectify the injustice.

For you fans of alt-rock, the grunge scene, teen drama, the 1990s, Jeremy Massie or all of the above, this new comic is the one for you, it's HOLLER #1. Following the teen misadventures of four friends trying to start their own rocking band in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, which range from the fate of a Nirvana t-shirt, trying to figure out what good name for their first band is, the hectic journey towards the Battle of the Bands and more. Even if this genre isn't usually your jam, Massie has done his best to ensure it can be enjoyed by anyone, so don't be scared to give it a try.

Comic book tie-ins to music albums is a growing trend, and now you can get behind the latest one with JACK THE RADIO CREATURES ANTHOLOGY, based on the latest release from the band, Jack the Radio, called Creatures. Written by band member, George Hage, and featuring artwork from a variety of artists, including Alexis Zirritt, Tommy Lee Edwards, Khoi Pham and more, find out what the space-age, country rocker gets up to when he isn't rocking the audience.
