New Comics 8-9-17

Happy Wednesday Fankind!!! There are a lot of great comics coming out every week, but this week seems above an beyond great! Here are my three picks for the week:
 
REDLANDS #1 from Image Comics. A brand-new horror book from the minds of Eisner Award-winner JORDIE BELLAIRE (PRETTY DEADLY, Vision, Batman) and critically acclaimed artist VANESA R. DEL REY (ZERO, Scarlet Witch, Constantine) brings you to the sleepy, sunny town of Redlands, Florida. The police are failing to maintain control of their old-fashioned town, and a coven of killer witches plan to take everything from them.
 
MISTER MIRACLE #1 from DC Comics. From the team behind THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON and the Hugo Award-nominated writer of Vision comes a unique new take on one of Jack Kirby’s most beloved New Gods. Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks. You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick – except one: he has never escaped death.
 
STAR WARS CASSIAN & K2SO ONE SHOT from Marvel Comics. Cassian Andor is one of the top intelligence agents in the ranks of the Rebel Alliance, ably assisted by his reprogrammed Imperial security droid, K-2SO. But naturally, the two weren’t always on the same side of the Galactic Civil War. Now, for the first time, read the story of the pair’s first contentious meeting! It is very likely not to go well.

CALEXIT #1 from Black Mask Comics. What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States?

From the creators of YOUNG TERRORISTS, Matteo Pizzolo (GODKILLER) and Amancay Nahuelpan (CLANDESTINO), comes this tale of resisting oppression, punching Nazis, protecting each other, kicking ass, and demanding liberty for all.

New Comics 6-7-17

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.
