As the weather gets a little colder and the night comes earlier, it’s also time for comics to get a little darker… CREEPSVILLE #1 (with art/story by Chris Burnham among others)! BLOODSHOT UNLEASHED #1 (Valiant’s first mature readers title)! STUFF OF NIGHTMARES #1 (RL Stine doing what he does)! BATMAN ONE BAD DAY TWO-FACE #1 (we assume it’s dark; dude’s face was melted by acid, after all…)! RED ROOM TRIGGER WARNINGS collection! LAST BOOK YOULL EVER READ collection (written by Cullen Bunn)! VANISH #1 (Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman aren’t known for bright and sunny comics, you know?)!

But to counter all that, there’s MAYOR GOOD BOY GOES HOLLYWOOD (written by Chicago’s resident Halloween decoration fan Dave Scheidt)! JUSTICE LEAGUE SAVES CHRISTMAS! And a whole bunch of new LITTLE GOLDEN BOOKS (Shuri! T0-B1! Santa!).

Something for everyone, just like always. Thanks, Comics!!

It’s September! How can that be? Luckily we have all the great new Comics and Books to keep us distracted from the passage of time!

This week an Icon draws an Icon in Lee Bermejo’s BATMAN DEAR DETECTIVEDARK KNIGHTS OF STEEL gives us an adorable 3-story anthology of the early years of that series; Cullen Bunn debuts a pretty fun horror flip-comic in SHOCK SHOP (set in a creepy comics shop, no less); and Skybound debuts a great young adult super-hero graphic novel with EVERYDAY HERO MACHINE BOY (think Astro Boy meets Steven Universe)!

And those are just a few of this week’s gems!
