UPCOMING RELEASES for 04/12/23

This week is SO EXCITING that there are TWO Spotlight Comics/Picks of the week! They are completely different in tone and genre, but both also feature… murder!!

JAMES TYNION debuts W0RLDTR33, an intense, graphic internet horror book that evokes the subjects of his earliest work (Memetic, Cognetic) and it is NOT for the squeamish!! Recommended!!

JOHN ALLISON and MAX SARIN present the wonderfully fun GREAT BRITISH BUMP OFF! A murder occurs on a very popular English-based baking show and one of the contestants has to solve it before the showstopper! This is a very fun book and if you have any affinity for the Great British Baking Show (no relation) you will LOVE this comic!! Recommended!!

There’s also a season-based, photographic horror/fantasy series from BOOM! Studios in SEASONS HAVE TEETH #1; a Captains America crossover event starts in CAPTAIN AMERICA COLD WAR ALPHA; a brand new Marvel GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY SERIES; and so very much more!! Oh! Like the TOP 10 COMPENDIUM, collecting EVERY TOP 10 series in one handy book!

Thanks to everyone who celebrated our 15th Anniversary with us! Here’s to the beginnings of Year 16!!

     —SPOTLIGHT COMICS—

•W0RLDTR33 #1
In 1999, Gabriel and his friends discovered the Undernet, a secret architecture to the Internet. They charted their exploration on a message board called W0RLDTR33. Then they lost control. At great personal cost, Gabriel and the others thought they sealed the Undernet away for good. They were wrong. And now they will know the meaning of PH34R. From JAMES TYNION IV and FERNANDO BLANCO!


•GREAT BRITISH BUMP OFF #1
An Agatha Christie-style murder mystery set in the world of English competitive baking from Giant Days' John Allison and Max Sarin. When she enters her country's most beloved baking competition, Shauna Wickle's goal is to delight the judges, charm the nation, and make a few friends along the way. But when a fellow contestant is poisoned, it falls to her to apprehend the culprit while avoiding premature elimination from the UK Bakery Tent... and being the poisoner's next victim!

     —SPOTLIGHT BOOK—

     —NEW COMICS OF NOTE—

•SEASONS HAVE TEETH #1
In a drab, colorless world, the seasons bring change... and also destruction. Andrew, a retired conflict photographer, lives a life steeped in regret after an unthinkable tragedy, but everything shifts when the seasons arrive-each one a personified, god-like creature. As he risks everything to track down Spring, Summer, AutumnFall, and Winter, will capturing the perfect picture of each be enough to find redemption... and ultimately bring color back to his world?


•CAPTAIN AMERICA COLD WAR ALPHA 1
When Steve Rogers' adopted son, Ian, A.K.A. Nomad, is abducted by someone Steve thought was a friend, he suspects Bucky's hand at work and calls upon the people who know Ian best - Sam Wilson, Sharon Carter and Misty Knight - to help him get to the bottom of the attack. Has Bucky finally gone too far? Why has Nomad been taken, and what does it have to do with a portal to Dimension Z opening over a secret battleground in Alaska? The Symbol of Truth and the Sentinel of Liberty reunite for a pulse-pounding crossover event!


•GIANT KOKJU #1
This is a tale of woe about a monster with physical needs. It needs a restroom. It needs food, too. And, most unfortunately, it needs...sexual satisfaction. The only thing standing in its way are the men and women of science. We're proudly flying our M rating for violence, mild gore, sexual situations, nudity, dudity, turds, comedy, drama, and, um, some very tasteful swearing.


•GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 1
One year ago, the Guardians of the Galaxy were destroyed. Their optimistic future shattered by the betrayal of one of their own. Now they ride the space lanes of a lawless corner of the galaxy, trying to outrun their tragedy. Can they rediscover their heroism and humanity on the bleakest frontier? Can they forgive the failures of their past? Or will they fade into the dark, eternally unforgiven?


•SANDMAN NIGHTMARE COUNTRY GLASS HOUSE #1
The Corinthian has been turned loose on our realm once more, and this time he sets his sights on the very root of rapacious American capitalism--Silicon Valley. His relentless pursuit of the Smiling Man will carve a bloody path from the C-suite of Prophet Capital to the bowels of a demonic nightclub, and no one will be safe from his reach.

•STAR WARS ROTJ EWOKS 1
Yub-Nub! Coatee-cha tu yub nub! Alaay loo ta nuv! Ee chee wa maa! Doh, Doh, Va Doh, Doh! Een Et Manay!


•TMNT USAGI YOJIMBO WHEREWHEN #1
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pursue the evil cyborg genius Dr. WhereWhen through a time portal...and emerge in feudal Japan! There, they encounter Usagi Yojimbo, 20 years into the samurai's future but decades after the arrival of Dr. WhereWhen... who has already carved himself a fiefdom using mechanized clockwork samurai robots... with the intention of conquering both the past and current timelines!
