It’s a fresh new year of comics, and 2018 is starting strong! First up is a slate of Batman comics (you like Batman, right?) with BATMAN #38 (Batman and Wonder Woman!), BATMAN AND THE SIGNAL #1 (from the pages of Dark Nights Metal), and Sean Gordon Murphy’s BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT #4! Next up is a “New World Order” in WALKING DEAD #175! Mark Russell does with SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES #1 what he did with The Flintstones and Prez, and it’s getting rave reviews. It’s a reunion of everyone’s favorite star-crossed mutant romance in ROGUE & GAMBIT #1! Or is it? Archie has a new all-ages comics that’s out of this world with COSMO #1. And there’s SO MUCH MORE! (PAPER GIRLS #19, CAPTAIN AMERICA #697, RISE OF BLACK PANTHER #1, and Isabella Rotman’s SIREN SCHOOL). Oh! Don't overlook the SAGA THE WILL & LYING CAT 2-PACK action figure set! Thanks for everything, 2017, but it looks like 2018 has us covered.
As 2017 draws to a close, this week’s New Comics show us just how good of a year it was. The biggest title of the year, DOOMSDAY CLOCK #2 is out this week. And as 2017 is reborn into 2018, so is the Phoenix reborn in PHOENIX RESURRECTION RETURN JEAN GREY #1. And there’s a brand new collection of our hands down, #1 best-selling comic and graphic novel in our shop, SAGA VOL 08. If you haven’t seen Star Wars The Last Jedi yet but are planning to, we don’t want to pour salt in your wounds, but STAR WARS LAST JEDI STORMS OF CRAIT #1 is also out this week (credit where credit is due, that was Dal’s joke). And for all you Dark Nights Metal fans, HAWKMAN FOUND #1 is a Metal tie-in. Thanks for being a Challenger in 2017 and we hope to see you a bunch in 2018.

This week’s New Comics theme is “More.” More Holiday Specials! WICKED & DIVINE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL #1 and GRIMM FAIRY TALES 2017 HOLIDAY SPECIAL! More brand new #1’s! RUMBLE #1 (Rathraq is back! But who is he, exactly? Once an ancient warrior god, he was resurrected as a sword-wielding scarecrow. And now, Rathraq has transformed yet again-or has he?) GRAVETRANCERS #1 (On a journey to track down the grave of their estranged father, Maribel and Anthony find their way to a strange, seemingly abandoned field of mostly unmarked tombs. There they encounter grave-robbers who've devised a highly-addictive drug made from human remains--and the fresher the corpse, the stronger the dose.) JUDAS #1 (In a religion built on redemption and forgiveness, one man had to sacrifice himself for everyone...and it wasn't Jesus. Judas Iscariot journeys through life and death, grappling with his place in "The Greatest Story Ever Told," and how much of his part was preordained.) GIANTS #1 (A cataclysm of unknown origins unleashed a race of gigantic monsters whose presence has driven humanity underground.) More of the very best comics have to offer! THE DAMNED #6, MISTER MIRACLE #5, UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #27, DEPT H #21, ALL NEW WOLVERINE #28, and GRASS KINGS #10! Here’s to “More” Happy Holidays!
