NEW for Wed 11/09/22

It’s a great week for brand new series, from Image, BOOM! and Ablaze. GOSPEL #1! TWO GRAVES #1! TRAVELLING TO MARS! SPECS #1! And Zoe Thorogood’s memoir-ish IT'S LONELY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH! Seriously good new comics that cover all different genres.

For those of you missing the 1990’s, we return to both the DEATH OF SUPERMAN with a 30th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL (and, of course, many, many covers, including a black bag) and Kraven’s Last Hunt with SPIDER-MAN THE LOST HUNT. And WILDCATS is back. Again. I guess you can put SABRETOOTH AND THE EXILES here, too, but we don’t really get a throw-back vibe from it.

It's a week that shows you the best comics of yesterday and tomorrow all in the same Wednesday!

     —SPOTLIGHT COMIC—
•GOSPEL #1 (Image)
When opportunity refuses to knock for restless hero Matilde, the devil comes knocking instead. Thrust into action by the hellish arrival, Matilde and storyteller Pitt will quest for answers - answers that threaten to tear them apart and trigger the toughest question of all: "Who am I?" Inspired by the work of Hayao Miyazaki and set in the chaos of King Henry VIII's reign, GOSPEL is a thrilling fantasy adventure that questions the truth behind the stories we tell.

     —SPOTLIGHT BOOK—
• IT'S LONELY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH (Image)
Cartoonist ZOE THOROGOOD records six months of her own life as it falls apart in a desperate attempt to put it back together again in the only way she knows how. IT'S LONELY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH is an intimate metanarrative that looks into the life of a selfish artist who must create for her own survival. A poignant, slice-of-life-style story perfect for fans of Adrian Tomine's The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist.

     —NEW COMICS OF NOTE—
•TWO GRAVES #1 (Image)
Emilia and the man with the veil of smoke have set out for the ocean in a stolen truck. There's a bloody handprint on his neck. She's beginning to worry it's hers. Death and the Maiden go on a road trip. Nobody gets out alive. A new series from writer GENEVIEVE VALENTINE (Catwoman), illustrated in competing points of view by ANNIE WU and MING DOYLE.

•TRAVELING TO MARS #1 (Ablaze)
From Mark Russell comes the story of former pet store manager Roy Livingston, the first human to ever set foot on Mars. Roy was chosen for this unlikely mission for one simple reason: he is terminally ill and therefore has no expectation of returning. Roy is joined on his mission to Mars by Leopold and Albert, two Mars rovers equipped with artificial intelligence, who look upon the dying pet store manager as a sort of god. Against the backdrop of not only his waning days but those of human civilization as well, Roy has ample time to think about where things went wrong for both of them and what it means to be a dying god.

•SPECS #1 (BOOM!)
What happens when a couple of misfit teens mail-order a pair of X-ray glasses, and realize they've received much more than they bargained for? But all Kenny and Ted want is to not feel like outcasts in their small Ohio town. Their world is turned upside down when the Magic Specs they receive unlock a world of possibilities. Things take a cursed turn, with far darker consequences than they thought possible...

•WILDCATS #1 (DC)
Spinning off from the pages of Batman comes a senses-shattering new series! The HALO Corporation has gathered a motley crew of operatives, led by Cole Grifter Cash, who are going to make the world a better place...no matter who they have to kill! Working in the shadows of the DC Universe, this new covert team has been tasked with gathering an elite group of scientists for the first phase of their plan...but the Cats' mysterious leader, Void, might have other plans!

•DEATH OF SUPERMAN 30TH ANN SPECIAL #1 (DC)
30 years ago, the unthinkable happened. The Man of Steel died. After sacrificing himself to stop the unstoppable global threat, Doomsday, Metropolis and the rest of the DC Universe mourned the loss of their greatest hero. To mark this monumental moment in comics, DC has reunited the complete creative team behind the original event for four brand-new stories.

•NEW GOLDEN AGE #1 (DC)
From the Justice Society of America to the Legion of Super-Heroes, The New Golden Age will unlock DC’s epic and secret-ridden history of heroism, launching a new group of titles set firmly in the DC Universe. From the 1940s to the 3040s, heroes take on the great evils of their time. But in the aftermath of Flashpoint Beyond, those heroes and villains will have their lives turned upside down. But how are Mime and Marionette connected to this? Why are Rip Hunter and the Time Masters the most unlikable heroes in the DC Universe? And who or what is...Nostalgia?

•SABRETOOTH & THE EXILES 1 (Marvel)
The powers that be condemned SABRETOOTH to the pit for breaking the rules of Krakoa. But now he's free - and ready to show the world you can't keep Victor Creed down - even as the EXILES from Krakoa speed along in hot pursuit! A new chapter in the fan-favorite saga begins in brutal fashion, but when DR. BARRINGTON gets her hooks in Creed, he'll be lucky to survive the first issue! Victor LaValle and Leonard Kirk return for this unforgettable installment in the chronicles of one of Marveldom's most vicious mutants!

•SPIDER-MAN THE LOST HUNT 1 (Marvel)
JM DeMatteis continues to spin new webs within the past. As Peter and Mary Jane prepare for their new lives in Portland, a man from Kraven's past stalks them. Who is this mystery man, and what does he want with Spider-Man? Find out when we return to the time period after Spider-Man The Final Adventure when Peter Parker was powerless!
