New Comics for 10/24/18
Another massive week as we round the corner to the end of October and Halloween! Which also means that this weekend is Halloween ComicFest! Be sure you check with your Local Comic Shop to see what they are doing to celebrate! Lots of fun stuff going on this weekend so get ready!
From Dark Horse this week, and just in time for the spooky season, comes Whispering Dark #1. From writer Christofer Emgard with art by Tomas Aria. An Army pilot confronts a supernatural horror in this thriller in the tradition of Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness and Coppola's Apocalypse Now! Hannah Vance believed her faith in God could survive anything. But when her helicopter is shot down behind enemy lines, she will fight and kill on an ever more savage battlefield, desperate for a way home. On the horizon, an evil waits for her-and freedom, of a sort.
From DC this week, the final Sandman Universe title premiers with Books of Magic #1. It's the return of Neil Gaiman's magical morality fable in an all-new series written by Kat Howard (Roses and Rot, An Unkindness of Magicians) and drawn by Tom Fowler (DOOM PATROL)! Timothy Hunter may be destined to become the most powerful magician in the universe, but he's still a London teenager, and having magical abilities complicates things more than it helps. It's not like he can use magic to pass his exams, stop being bullied or convince his cute friend to date him. And while Tim's trying to live his life, there are cultists who want to kill him, believing his power will eventually corrupt him into becoming a merciless mage. Oh, and those are the good guys. Luckily, his new substitute teacher is more than she appears, and may be able to help Tim discover the mystery behind the Books of Magic...
Also from DC this week, Old Lady Harley #1 (of 5) hits the shelves! After liberating New York City from her now-feral Gang of Harleys, poor Harley wants nothing more than to slip back into retirement in her coastal (and heavily guarded) paradise. But the Laughing Boys Gang has another idea-they'll follow her to the ends of the Earth, to drag her back to their leader! It can't actually be...him! Right?! He couldn't possibly still be alive, could he? After all...Harley killed him herself with her bare hands! Should she turn to President Power Girl for help? Or flee to the 51st state, Atlantis? Step into an insane vision of a future DC Universe we all better hope we don't live to see!
From Dynamite this week, Mars Attacks makes its return with a new issue #1! Spencer hasn't finished a dang thing in his life. So when he goes to visit his dad to see if maybe he can borrow some money, the last thing on his mind is global survival. Now Spencer and his father are on the run, trying to avoid being spaceray'd by a bunch of destruction happy Martians, heck bent on zapping them dead! Writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Rock Candy Mountain) and artist Chris Schweizer (The Creeps, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) bring you the face melting experience of a lifetime with Mars Attacks for the first time at Dynamite!
From IDW this week Judge Dredd Toxis #1 hits the racks. Celebrated British writer Paul Jenkins takes his first shot at Judge Dredd! The death of a genetically modified toxic waste worker leads to a startling discovery that fuels anti-immigration fervor and threatens to spill over into the streets of Mega-City One. Cutting satire and gritty action from writer Paul Jenkins (Hellblazer, The Inhumans) and artist Marco Castiello (Star Wars)!
Also from IDW this week, from their Black Crown imprint comes Lodger #1. A handsome drifter murders his way through the midwest while hiding in plain sight as a travel blogger, leaving families in shreds and body bags in his wake. Ricky Toledo was fifteen when she fell hard for "Dante"-until he killed her mother and got her father sent to prison for it. It's three years later, and Ricky will stop at nothing to get revenge. Lodger is a dark, grimy, psychological thriller-a game of cat and mouse between a broken young woman and a serial killer-and like all the best crime noir... a twisted love story.
From Marvel this week, Black Panther Vs Deadpool #1 (of 5) hits the racks. VIBRANIUM BULLETS AND REGROWING LIMBS - EVERYTHING YOU WANT FROM A COMIC IS HERE! Deadpool's teamed up with, taken down or taken a beating from just about every hero in the Marvel Universe. And no way is the Black Panther going to miss out on his turn. From Late Show writer Daniel Kibblesmith comes a hilarious romp through Wakanda as Deadpool goes on the hunt for the world's most valuable resource: Vibranium! When a beloved figure of the Marvel Universe becomes collateral damage in a fight between Deadpool and the Wrecker, the heroic Deadpool sets out to obtain a fragment of Vibranium that could save the victim's life. But his unconventional methods - ranging from poaching to dismemberment - don't sit well with the King of Wakanda, and Deadpool's about to learn that you don't bring a sword to a claw fight!
Infinity Wars keeps warping character and this week features the debut of the Arachknight #1 (of 2). Chosen as the Avatar of the Spider-Totem, Peter Parker is the dark guardian of destiny doing the bidding of the great weaver of fate... a role that has shattered his mind into multiple personas: a tech genius, a photographer, a teacher...
Last from Marvel we have 2 spider-geddon tie ins. Spider Girls #1 (of 3). MAY "MAYDAY" PARKER, the original SPIDER-GIRL, ANYA CORAZON, the Prime Universe SPIDER-GIRL, and ANNIE MAY PARKER, A.K.A. SPIDERLING - together for the first time! May will do anything to protect her brother from the Inheritors, and Anya's knowledge of the mystical Spider-Totems could save the day. But how does Annie fit in? And what chance do three girls have against ageless universal forces?!
Spider Gwen Ghost Spider #1 also hits racks this week and is a spider-geddon tie in. What? You thought we were done with Gwen Stacy after the first two landmark volumes of her series?! GET OUTTA HERE. It's a whole new spin on Gwen and her world of Earth-65, brought to you by none other than SEANAN MCGUIRE & ROSI KÄMPE! We pick up with Gwen right where we left her - fighting crime through her home reality, unaware that it sits on the precipice of interdimensional calamity! Someone's gonna be late to band practice...
From AfterShock, Dead Kings #1 hits racks this week. Sasha never saw his younger brother...until the secret police made him disappear. Sasha Vasnetsov left Thrice-Nine-the dirty folklore world that limps along in the wreckage of a Technomagic War-thirty years ago and never looked back. But word that the secret police have sent his brother Gena to a work camp for the socially degenerate drags him back, with a promise to free Gena and return him to their mother before her fiftieth birthday. The only problem? Sasha isn't a fraction of the tough guy he tries to be, so if he's going to break back into Thrice-Nine...he'll need help. Sasha's only hope is Maria Kamenaya, a former Technomagic Warrior with hundreds of enemy kills to her name, betrayed by the country that made her when her honor conflicted with their agenda.
