What a week of New #1’s! There are several books we’re really excited for staring this week, including: -LARKS KILLER #1 Lark is a runaway living rough on the streets of LA, when suddenly she's transported to an alien world of swords, dragons and magic, where everyone wants her dead. And she likely won't live long enough to find out why! -MECH CADET YU #1 Once a year, giant robots from outer space come to Earth and bond with cadets from the Sky Corps Academy to defend the world from the terrifying aliens. It's a great honor to be chosen, but this year...well, the wrong kid was picked. -GALAKTIKON #1 From Brendon Small, the man who brought you Dethklok and Metalocalypse, comes a high stakes intergalactic extreme rock comic. -ROBOTECH #1 Harmony Gold's cult '80s television series Robotech returns or all-new adventures, written by Brian Wood. -ELSEWHERE #1 Mysteriously transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and alien civilizations, Amelia Earhart desperately struggles to return home. As our friend Earl says, “It’s an embarrassment of riches!”
Soon, July 2017 will be but a memory, and all we will have to remind us of these last few waning days are the wonderful comics that came out during its last light. Comics such as SAGA #46, THE DAMNED #3, SECRET EMPIRE #7, FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #1, 2 issues of CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #19 and SAM WILSON #24, SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER #2, RICK & MORTY #28, and GO GO POWER RANGERS #1. Thanks for everything, July 2017!
One of our favorite new books of 2017 comes out this week, MOONSTRUCK #1! (A new, ongoing series from Lumberjanes creator GRACE ELLIS and talented newcomer SHAE BEAGLE that tells a story of monsters, romance, and magical hijinks. Kind of like a rom-com version of Fables. Kind of. It's very fun.). There’s also swingin’ 60’s action with the Teens of Tomorrow in BATMAN 66 MEETS THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 (by Mike Allred!!). Just in time for our CURSE WORDS VAN TOUR EVENT on Friday, July 21 is CURSE WORDS #6 and ASTONISHING X-MEN #1(written by Charles Soule). Image gives us GENERATION GONE #1 (by Ales Kot) and a new Lazarus mini-series, LAZARUS X PLUS 66 #1. And then there’s PETER PARKER SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #2, BATMAN #27, MIGHTY THOR #21, and if you’re playing Challengers Clue, you get your Suspect with CLUE #2.
If you’re not reading Zander Cannon’s “Kaijumax” by now, well, you should really be reading Zander Cannon’s “Kaijumax.” But don’t worry; this is the perfect week to start! KAIJUMAX SEASON 3 #1 is out and it’s the perfect jumping on point!! It is literally in our Top 5 of comics being published today. It’s dark, oh my is it dark, but it’s very good. Other books of note being released on July 12th include MAGE HERO DENIED #0 (the return of Kevin Matchstick!), SPIDER-MEN II #1 (who is the Miles Morales of Earth 616? And do we really still cal it Earth 616 after Secret Wars?), DARK DAYS THE CASTING (first you forge the Metal, and then you cast it), CALEXIT #1 (what if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if California refused to be ruled?), KILL OR BE KILLED #10, KIM REAPER #3, DREAD GODS #1, and HULK #8.
