UPCOMING RELEASES for 06/21/23

The TRANSFORMATION of The MARVEL UNIVERSE BEGINS!
Five years ago JONATHAN HICKMAN completely revolutionized the X-MEN with HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X. Now, he’s doing it again (with Bryan Hitch), for the ULTIMATE UNIVERSE with ULTIMATE INVASION #1!!

The next installment of the BONE ORCHARD MYTHOS universe begins with the stand-alone series TENEMENT! Jeff Lemire (who is signing at Challengers on June 23) and Andrea Sorrentino continue to creep us the F*** OUT!!

The INCREDIBLE HULK has a new series with new creators and a bold new, direction! Prepare for the AGE OF MONSTERS!

Marvel’s Summer ANNUALS crossover event CONTEST OF CHAOS starts in SCARLET WITCH ANNUAL #1! And runs thru other Marvel Comics Annuals the next few months.

The GOSPEL TP collects the recent 5-issue series by Will Morris that Patrick loved and has the excellent tagline, ‘When Opportunity Refuses to Knock, the DEVIL comes Knocking Instead.’ A Middle Ages fantasy about the power of story. Plus, you know, the Devil…

And WILD’S END #1 is another period comic, an early 20th Century alien invasion story set in a sleepy fishing town. War of the Worlds meets Wind in the Willows.

And those are just to start you off! Look how many other amazing comics await your hungry brain…!

THE ULTIMATES helped redefine super hero comics for the 2000s - wait until you see what Jonathan Hickman has in store for this decade! Including new Hickman data pages plus exclusive behind-the-scenes material on the world-building that has gone into this project!

GOSPEL (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 renown, the soul of their community, and answers to 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, Will Morris' GOSPEL is a thrilling fantasy adventure that explores the truth behind the stories we tell. Collects GOSPEL #1-5

     —SPOTLIGHT COMICS—

BONE ORCHARD TENEMENT #1 (Image)
In this extra-length first issue, JEFF LEMIRE & ANDREA SORRENTINO bring you the story of seven residents in a building and the dark secrets that bind them together...beginning with a death that feels much more sinister than natural. TENEMENT is the newest entry into THE BONE ORCHARD MYTHOS from LEMIRE & SORRENTINO. This universe features self-contained graphic novels and limited series about the horrors waiting to be discovered within the Bone Orchard.


INCREDIBLE HULK #1 (Marvel)
Brand new creative team: Phillip Kennedy Johnson & Nic Klein! As an enraged Hulk tries to take control of Bruce Banner's body permanently, a mysterious immortal turns every monster in the Marvel Universe against Banner in an attempt to free their creator, the primordial Mother of Horrors. With the help of an unlikely new friend, Banner and Hulk must try to stop the world from getting plunged into darkness in this terrifying new series!


WILD'S END #1 (BOOM!)
War of the Worlds meets Wind in the Willows! Journey to alien-occupied interwar England, courtesy of Dan Abnett & I.N.J. Culbard! Out at sea during the invasion, our intimate crew of unlucky voyagers returns to a world they once knew, their once-cozy seaside home now occupied by alien invaders. Combining a rich cast of anthropomorphized characters in the tradition of Blacksad and aliens unlike any you've ever seen! Wild's End is a world unlike any other... one you won't want to leave.


SCARLET WITCH ANNUAL #1 (Marvel)
"CONTEST OF CHAOS" prelude! When a newly rejuvenated Agatha Harkness learns of the Scarlet Witch's recent absorption of Chthon, she decides to educate her former student on the dangers of such an endeavor. But Wanda is not the meek pupil she once was - and Agatha's intentions are not so straightforward. This epic clash between Marvel's most powerful witches sets off a chain reaction that will affect the course of Marvel's summer!

GODZILLA HERE THERE BE DRAGONS #1 (IDW)
In the 1500s, before humanity had successfully traveled the entire globe, it was believed that monsters ruled the oceans just beyond the horizon. "Here there be dragons..." was written on maps to denote the areas people dared not go.That is, until Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the seas, visiting foreign lands and collecting treasure. That's what history tells us, at least, but history does not have the full tale. Monsters did lurk yonder, living on an island that still doesn't appear on any map, and among them was the king of them all-Godzilla!
