Happy Wednesday Fankind! Lot’s of great books out this week, including:
THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA #1 from Image Comics. A deeply troubled America is barely beginning to recover from a profound national trauma, only to be further destabilized by a worst-case terrorist attack. A powerful and profoundly unsettling new series echoing today’s political turmoil and the restlessness of a jaded society, THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA is poised to upend what readers have come to expect from comics. I am a huge Howard Chaykin fan, so this one is my top pick.
BABYTEETH #1 from Aftershock Comics. Sadie Ritter is sixteen years old, nine months pregnant, and scared out of her sweet nerdy mind. Having a baby that young is tough, but with the support of her loving family behind her, everything should be okay. OH YEAH, and also her baby is the antichrist and it’s going to break open the barriers between the earthly and demonic planes and unleash eternal suffering to all of humankind. Other than that, though…should be fine. From Donny Cates (GOD COUNTRY and REDNECK) with art by Garry Brown.
DARTH VADER #1 from Marvel Comics. The most fearsome villain of all time returns with an all-new series! When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that was once dear to him, the former chosen one must take his first steps into a darker world…as Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith! Join Vader as he learns a new way – the way of Darth Sidious and his newly formed Empire…the way of the dark side.
