This week is THE week to get out and VOTE! …with your wallet for this week’s great new releases, including some highly anticipated smaller press books (like Giga).
--NEW BOOKS OF NOTE-- GIGA #1 Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as 'Giga' fought their bitter, centuries' long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity's new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos. LEGACY OF MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN #1 Mandy Paz is by all appearances an ordinary teenager just trying to make her way through high school. If she seems like she's going out of her way to avoid attention, that's because she's hiding a big secret-she has powerful magical talents. So, when strange and sinister things start happening in her small town, Mandy decides to take action. And on her quest to chase down the root of the town's trouble she just might discover the truth about her own legacy. COLONEL WEIRD COSMAGOG #1 From the world of the Eisner Award-winning Black Hammer series comes a bizarre sci-fi adventure origin story! Wacky space adventurer Colonel Randall Weird leaves Black Hammer farm and embarks on a strange journey through space and time for something that he's long forgotten with his sanity and life at stake! X OF SWORDS STASIS #1 A ritual. A parliament. A game begins. TMNT THE LAST RONIN #1 In a future NYC far different than the one we know today, a lone surviving Turtle goes on a seemingly hopeless mission to obtain justice for his fallen family and friends. Think “Dark Knight Returns” for the Turtles. SYMPATHY FOR NO DEVILS #1 Winston Wallis has a secret. He is all that remains of mankind, and is surrounded on all sides by demons, monsters, and ghouls that picked up where humankind left off - lying, stealing, cheating, and killing.
--DON’T OVERLOOK-- DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH #2, BATMAN THREE JOKERS #3, SEX CRIMINALS #69 (the final issue!!), IMMORTAL HULK #39, and X-RAY ROBOT #3!

You know we here at Challengers love Tom King, right? Well this is a banner week for us as he and Jorge Fornés (Batman) team-up once again for the 12-issue RORSCHACH maxi-series! Plus, another higher-than-normal-priced issue of Amazing Spider-Man in back-to-back weeks! Hooray!
--NEW BOOKS OF NOTE-- RORSCHACH #1 It's been 35 years since Ozymandias dropped a giant interdimensional squid on New York City, killing thousands and destroying the public's trust in heroes once and for all. And since that time, one figure in a fedora, mask, and trenchcoat has become a divisive culture icon. So what does it mean when Rorschach reappears as an assassin trying to kill a candidate running against President Robert Redford? Who is the man behind the mask, and why is he acting this way? By Tom King and Jorge Fornés. WE LIVE #1 The year is 2084. Wracked by calamities and crawling with monsters, the last remaining humans face a dangerous existence. And now, the Earth has been sent a message from the deepest reaches of space - a dark countdown to the extinction of all humanity. But there is hope! Five thousand children will be rescued by these mysterious message-senders. TRUE LIVES FABULOUS KILLJOYS NATIONAL ANTHEM #1 After the Analog Wars, the Killjoys lost their way-and their memories. A rat chews through Mike Milligram's TV cord, and reality unravels. But when his Ramones records disappear, Mike remembers what the fabulous Killjoys and some toy rayguns can do. Gerard Way and Shaun Simon take it all back to their original concept, rebooting the Killjoys in present-day America. COMMANDERS IN CRISIS #1 The last survivors of the Multiverse live among us under new, superheroic identities, five survivors of doomed worlds...taking a second chance to ensure our world lives on.

But when Lord Aragami succumbs to illness, his daughter, the fierce Ketsuko, hatches a plot to save her people, no matter the cost... WARHAMMER 40K MARNEUS CALGAR #1 The saga of WARHAMMER 40,000 comes to Marvel Comics!
