If you’re not reading Zander Cannon’s “Kaijumax” by now, well, you should really be reading Zander Cannon’s “Kaijumax.” But don’t worry; this is the perfect week to start! KAIJUMAX SEASON 3 #1 is out and it’s the perfect jumping on point!! It is literally in our Top 5 of comics being published today. It’s dark, oh my is it dark, but it’s very good. Other books of note being released on July 12th include MAGE HERO DENIED #0 (the return of Kevin Matchstick!), SPIDER-MEN II #1 (who is the Miles Morales of Earth 616? And do we really still cal it Earth 616 after Secret Wars?), DARK DAYS THE CASTING (first you forge the Metal, and then you cast it), CALEXIT #1 (what if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if California refused to be ruled?), KILL OR BE KILLED #10, KIM REAPER #3, DREAD GODS #1, and HULK #8.
New Comics will be available on Wednesday, July 5th, like always. Every week we spend this paragraph highlighting a few choice comics from the current week’s New Releases. And there seem to be more New Comics every week than the week before, so this week we’re just going to trust that YOU, dear reader, have the skill to navigate this list and to find something new that you never even knew you can’t live without. Like Cullen Bunn’s UNHOLY GRAIL #1 (The legend of King Arthur is not the stuff of legends, but the fuel of nightmares). Or Cullen Bunn’s UNSOUND #2(Ashli uncovers a horrifying secret in the deeper levels of the asylum, and not everyone in her group will make it out alive). Or even Cullen Bunn’s DEADPOOL KILLS MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN #1 (Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe, again). Or even Cullen Bunn’s DEADPOOL KILLS MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN #1. But, you know, it’s your Cullen—CALL! We mean it’s your CALL. Thanks!
Oh my goodness, June has had so many new comics! And this, the final week of the month, is no exception! First of all is the epic team-up you never knew you HAD to read, BATMAN/ELMER FUDD #1. Right?? And then, the board game that became a movie you never knew you needed to read a comic about, CLUE #1! Speaking of movies, did you see and love Arrival last year? Well, screenwriter Eric Heisserer writes Valiant’s SECRET WEAPONS #1! There’s also SECRET EMPIRE #5, SAGA #44, HEROINES #2, EDGE OF VENOMVERSE #1 and so, so very much more.
What a time to be a comics fan! This week is full of new #1’s and fun one-shots. Like, Chip Zdarsky’s take on PETER PARKER THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #1; Gail Simone’s body-swap spy book CROSSWINDS #1; SHIRTLESS BEAR FIGHTER #1 (that title kinda says it all); classic DC and Warner Bros. characters meet in LOBO/ROAD RUNNER #1 and WONDER WOMAN/TASMANIAN DEVIL #1; LUMBERJANES FAIRE AND SQUARE #1 takes them to a renaissance faire; and there’s also SECRET EMPIRE UNDERGROUND #1, HEARTTHROB SEASON 2 #1, STAR WARS POE DAMERON ANNUAL #1 and WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION #1. And that’s just the #1’s. You’re on your own for the rest of the new comics!
