As 2017 draws to a close, this week’s New Comics show us just how good of a year it was. The biggest title of the year, DOOMSDAY CLOCK #2 is out this week. And as 2017 is reborn into 2018, so is the Phoenix reborn in PHOENIX RESURRECTION RETURN JEAN GREY #1. And there’s a brand new collection of our hands down, #1 best-selling comic and graphic novel in our shop, SAGA VOL 08. If you haven’t seen Star Wars The Last Jedi yet but are planning to, we don’t want to pour salt in your wounds, but STAR WARS LAST JEDI STORMS OF CRAIT #1 is also out this week (credit where credit is due, that was Dal’s joke). And for all you Dark Nights Metal fans, HAWKMAN FOUND #1 is a Metal tie-in. Thanks for being a Challenger in 2017 and we hope to see you a bunch in 2018.

This week’s New Comics theme is “More.” More Holiday Specials! WICKED & DIVINE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL #1 and GRIMM FAIRY TALES 2017 HOLIDAY SPECIAL! More brand new #1’s! RUMBLE #1 (Rathraq is back! But who is he, exactly? Once an ancient warrior god, he was resurrected as a sword-wielding scarecrow. And now, Rathraq has transformed yet again-or has he?) GRAVETRANCERS #1 (On a journey to track down the grave of their estranged father, Maribel and Anthony find their way to a strange, seemingly abandoned field of mostly unmarked tombs. There they encounter grave-robbers who've devised a highly-addictive drug made from human remains--and the fresher the corpse, the stronger the dose.) JUDAS #1 (In a religion built on redemption and forgiveness, one man had to sacrifice himself for everyone...and it wasn't Jesus. Judas Iscariot journeys through life and death, grappling with his place in "The Greatest Story Ever Told," and how much of his part was preordained.) GIANTS #1 (A cataclysm of unknown origins unleashed a race of gigantic monsters whose presence has driven humanity underground.) More of the very best comics have to offer! THE DAMNED #6, MISTER MIRACLE #5, UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #27, DEPT H #21, ALL NEW WOLVERINE #28, and GRASS KINGS #10! Here’s to “More” Happy Holidays!
It’s December, so that means Holiday Specials and Team-Ups! Such as Grant Morrison’s KLAUS CRISIS IN XMASVILLE #1 and DC UNIVERSE HOLIDAY 2017. Or BATMAN TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II #1 and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VENOM INC ALPHA #1 (we leave it up to you to figure out which of those are team-ups and which are Holiday specials). There are also a few new Image Comics #1’s like SLEEPLESS #1 (from the writer of Alex + Ada and the artist of Shutter), PARADISO #1 (what if in Sim City, the CITY was the player?) and WITCHBLADE #1 (yup, she’s back again). And then there are the regular books you can’t live without, such as BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT #3, CAPTAIN AMERICA #696, WALKING DEAD #174, and BATMAN #36. 'Tis the season!
