“It’s your one-way ticket to midnight; call it, DARK NIGHTS METAL!” Okay, maybe that’s not what Sammy Hagar and Jim Peterik meant when they were writing that song for the Heavy Metal movie soundtrack, but, DARK NIGHTS METAL #1 does come out this week, AND at midnight!! That’s right, that, and ALL DC Comics will be available at 12:01 am this Wednesday! Comics of note that will be available at the regular time of 11am that same day include, GENERATIONS WOLVERINE & ALL-NEW WOLVERINE #1, MAGE HERO DENIED #1, SUPER SONS #7, NEIL GAIMAN AMERICAN GODS SHADOWS #6, BATMAN #29, MOTOR GIRL #8 and KAIJUMAX SEASON 3 #2!!
Wowwowow!! 2 amazing books debut this week! First up is MISTER MIRACLE #1 by Tom King and Mitch Gerads. Remember how good Vision was for Marvel? Well, it’s that good. Don’t miss this book! And then there’s REDLANDS #1 by Jodie Bellaire and Vanessa del Ray. If you like Bitch Planet, Wytches, Harrow County, you’ll LOVE this book. Fight back against the corrupt patriarchy! It is our fondest hope that everyone reading this tries BOTH of those books, because they’re so good. And there’s also, SECRET EMPIRE #8, KILL OR BE KILLED #11 and KILL OR BE KILLED VOL 2TP, MS. MARVEL #21, WWE SUMMER SLAM 2017 #1, and CLUE #3 (complete with a weapon for Challengers Clue!).
What a week of New #1’s! There are several books we’re really excited for staring this week, including: -LARKS KILLER #1 Lark is a runaway living rough on the streets of LA, when suddenly she's transported to an alien world of swords, dragons and magic, where everyone wants her dead. And she likely won't live long enough to find out why! -MECH CADET YU #1 Once a year, giant robots from outer space come to Earth and bond with cadets from the Sky Corps Academy to defend the world from the terrifying aliens. It's a great honor to be chosen, but this year...well, the wrong kid was picked. -GALAKTIKON #1 From Brendon Small, the man who brought you Dethklok and Metalocalypse, comes a high stakes intergalactic extreme rock comic. -ROBOTECH #1 Harmony Gold's cult '80s television series Robotech returns or all-new adventures, written by Brian Wood. -ELSEWHERE #1 Mysteriously transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and alien civilizations, Amelia Earhart desperately struggles to return home. As our friend Earl says, “It’s an embarrassment of riches!”
Soon, July 2017 will be but a memory, and all we will have to remind us of these last few waning days are the wonderful comics that came out during its last light. Comics such as SAGA #46, THE DAMNED #3, SECRET EMPIRE #7, FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #1, 2 issues of CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #19 and SAM WILSON #24, SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER #2, RICK & MORTY #28, and GO GO POWER RANGERS #1. Thanks for everything, July 2017!
