New Comics Release for 12/5/18

Fa La La La La its freaking December! Man where the heck did the year go? It seems like just yesterday it was spring and here we are kicking off December! Well there's a ton of stuff coming out this week, so lets dive into this weeks new releases!

From Boom! Studios this week, Wizard Beach #1 (of 5) is here! When Hexley Daggard Ragbottom sets off to find his Uncle Salazar, he expects to find the most powerful wizard of the modern age. Instead, he finds Uncle "Sally" only wants to kick back, relax, and stay clear of any kind of wizard politics. So how is Hex supposed to become a great wizard if all the adults are too lazy to teach him? Shaun Simon (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and Conor Nolan (Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Giants) present a humorous look at magic, family and just kicking back.

From DC this week, Martian Manhunter is back in issue #1 (of 12) written by Steve Orlando with art by Riley Rossmo. No matter what you know about J'onn J'onnz, you're not prepared for this! The acclaimed team of writer Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo (BATMAN/ THE SHADOW, BATMAN: NIGHT OF THE MONSTER MEN) reteam for a reinvention of the Manhunter from Mars in this twisted, unexpected series. Back on Mars, J'onn was about as corrupt as a law officer can be, and when a reckoning comes for his entire society, he'll get a second chance he doesn't want or deserve! One shocking murder, and an unexpected fragment of the Mars he lost, will change his life-and the course of the Earth-forever!

Lastly from DC this week SHAZAM! #1 hits the stands! The superstar team of writer Geoff Johns and artist Dale Eaglesham reunite to launch the first all-new SHAZAM! monthly title set in the DC Universe in almost 20 years! (What took you guys so long?!) Teenager turned super-hero Billy Batson struggles to balance school and superheroics! (Guess which one is more fun?) But when Shazam unlocks a shocking secret deep within the Rock of Eternity, it challenges everything he knows about the worlds of magic and his family's future as its champions! Also, witness the bizarre team-up of Dr. Sivana and Mr. Mind as they set off to build a society all their own! Don't miss the start of an epic run in the making as "Shazam and the Seven Realms" begins!

From Image this week, THE WICKED + THE DIVINE writer KIERON GILLEN teams up with artist supernova STEPHANIE HANS (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE 1831, Journey Into Mystery) for her first ongoing comic! DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron's in a rush, he describes it as "Goth Jumanji." That only captures a sliver of what you'll find in oversized debut issue-where fantasy gets all too real.

Also from Image this week, Freeze #1 hits the stands! The entire human population is frozen by a mysterious global event... all except Ray, and only he has the power to unfreeze them. Now with the fate of the world in his hands, he must figure out what is going on, how to set things right again, and answer the question: does everyone deserve to be saved?

Next up from Image and Mark Millar is Prodigy #1 (of 6) featuring art by Rafael Albuquerque. Edison Crane's not content being the world's smartest man and most successful businessman-his brilliant mind needs to be constantly challenged. He's a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, genius composer, Olympic athlete, an expert in the occult, and now international governments are calling on him to fix problems they just can't handle.

Lastly from Image this week, Self Made #1 hits the shelves. Introducing a new creative team everyone will be talking about-superstar talent writer MAT GROOM and artist EDUARDO FERIGATO. When chaos besieges the kingdom of Arcadia, warrior Amala Citlali sees it as her chance to escape her clearly-defined role-and to change her destiny. But she could never have predicted that it would also be her chance to confront her God. In his debut editorial role, comics veteran KYLE HIGGINS guides this intimate, worlds-spanning story of self-discovery.

From Marvel this week, Defenders Best Defense starts now with Defenders Immortal Hulk #1 AND Defenders Namor #1!

Stephen Strange is dead. A charred skeleton in an abandoned barn on the edge of a deserted town. Bruce Banner wants to know why. And he won't stop until he has the truth in his hands....with or without THE IMMORTAL HULK.

The Monarch of the Oceans has declared war once more on the surface world in the pages of AVENGERS. And if this is a war that Namor means to win, he is going to need allies to stand beside him! The Sub-Mariner's quest for a lost tribe of sea-dwellers carries him further than he ever thought possible-and to a reckoning both strange and wonderful! And hey, what's up with that weird apparition in the sheet, anyway?

Also from Marvel this week is Killmonger #1 (of 5). THE BRUTAL TALE OF A MAN WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING FOR FREEDOM...One day, Erik Killmonger will rise up and attempt to steal the throne of Wakanda. The throne he believes he is owed. But long before he became "Killmonger," there was a boy known as N'Jadaka. A boy who was stolen from his home and taught only the world's cruelties. A boy who knew the Black Panther only as a fairy tale, a whisper from strangers. This is the story of a man who driven by revenge. This is the legend of Killmonger.

Next up from Marvel is the Merry X-Men Holiday Special #1. Twenty-five holiday tales of merry mutants, one for each day of December 1 through December 25! What does Magneto do for Hanukkah? What's Rogue and Gambit's first married Christmas like? Is Jubilee truly the master of navigating malls during the holidays? These questions and more are answered as all your favorite X-Men and more creators than you can shake a jingle bell at come together for a holiday celebration to last all month long!

Next up, to prep for entering the spider verse, Spider Geddon Handbook #1 hits the rack this week. The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe returns with an all-new collection of Spider-Man profiles just in time for SPIDER-GEDDON! Among the profiles are the heroic Spiderling (Annie Parker)! Spider-Girl (Ashley Barton)! The vile Inheritors! Spider-Punk! Spider-Man's sister, Teresa Parker! The Master Weaver! And more! Also featuring updates for Spider-Man (Parker), Miles Morales and two Scarlet Spiders! Plus: A guide to the Spider-Men across the Multiverse!

Star Wars lore gets a little deeper with Star Wars Age of Republic Qui Gon Jin #1. JEDI ORDER...OR CHAOS? Considered one of the greatest Jedi Knights or the one who led them to their doom, maverick QUI-GON JINN is one of STAR WARS' most controversial heroes. The JEDI MASTER is known to bend the rules and it's gotten him into plenty of trouble with the COUNCIL. Now, in the face of a mission that goes awry, he's forced to confront his conflicting beliefs. What will Qui-Gon uncover about his loyalty to the Jedi vs his loyalty to the FORCE? Guest-starring MASTER YODA!

Next from Marvel is Winter Soldier #1 (of 5). Bucky Barnes believes in second chances. Having escaped death, the loss of identity, and a life of murder, the man known as the Winter Soldier has worked hard to atone for his sins. But now...he's going to go one step further. What do you do when you've found redemption? You help others do the same. From KYLE HIGGINS and ROD REIS comes the next chapter in the saga of the Winter Soldier. He's becoming a "fixer," working to help others leave behind lives of crime. It's Bucky's way of channeling his own pain in a productive, personal helping others find the redemption that he found. However, as Bucky is going to learn, not all paths are the same...and not everyone can be "saved."

Lastly, from Marvel, X-Men Exterminated #1. EXTERMINATION AFTERMATH! In the aftermath of Extermination, the X-Men mourn for their fallen brother, Cable. But no one is taking it harder than his adopted daughter, Hope Summers. Will Hope be able to cope with the loss, or will she be led down a dark path that she won't be able to return from? Only Jean Grey can save Hope from herself! Plus, celebrate the life of Nathan Summers with a story from his past by Chris Claremont!

From Black Mask this week comes Snap, Flash, Hustle #1 (of 4). Haley Mori, a downtrodden alternative-model, happens upon a secret society of elite models in NYC that are using their platforms to sell narcotics. Seeing a possible escape from a lifetime of crushing debt, Haley becomes involved and works her way up the ranks, making new alliances and enemies alike while getting a taste of a power she never knew she craved. In this new stylish crime thriller from writer Pat Shand (Breathless) and artist Emily Pearson (The Wilds), nothing is as it seems.

From Albatross Exploding Funnybooks comes Grumble #1! When the forces of good and evil are hunting you down, the only logical thing to do is disguise yourself as a dog and go on the run! Eddie is a low-rent hustler who got magically turned into a pug during a con gone wrong. Tala is Eddie's long-lost, part-demon daughter. When Tala finds herself the target of powerful inter-dimensional forces, she goes to Eddie for help-setting off a chain reaction of chaos and destruction that could threaten the very fabric of existence.
