One of our favorite new books of 2017 comes out this week, MOONSTRUCK #1! (A new, ongoing series from Lumberjanes creator GRACE ELLIS and talented newcomer SHAE BEAGLE that tells a story of monsters, romance, and magical hijinks. Kind of like a rom-com version of Fables. Kind of. It's very fun.). There’s also swingin’ 60’s action with the Teens of Tomorrow in BATMAN 66 MEETS THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 (by Mike Allred!!). Just in time for our CURSE WORDS VAN TOUR EVENT on Friday, July 21 is CURSE WORDS #6 and ASTONISHING X-MEN #1(written by Charles Soule). Image gives us GENERATION GONE #1 (by Ales Kot) and a new Lazarus mini-series, LAZARUS X PLUS 66 #1. And then there’s PETER PARKER SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #2, BATMAN #27, MIGHTY THOR #21, and if you’re playing Challengers Clue, you get your Suspect with CLUE #2.
If you’re not reading Zander Cannon’s “Kaijumax” by now, well, you should really be reading Zander Cannon’s “Kaijumax.” But don’t worry; this is the perfect week to start! KAIJUMAX SEASON 3 #1 is out and it’s the perfect jumping on point!! It is literally in our Top 5 of comics being published today. It’s dark, oh my is it dark, but it’s very good. Other books of note being released on July 12th include MAGE HERO DENIED #0 (the return of Kevin Matchstick!), SPIDER-MEN II #1 (who is the Miles Morales of Earth 616? And do we really still cal it Earth 616 after Secret Wars?), DARK DAYS THE CASTING (first you forge the Metal, and then you cast it), CALEXIT #1 (what if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if California refused to be ruled?), KILL OR BE KILLED #10, KIM REAPER #3, DREAD GODS #1, and HULK #8.
New Comics will be available on Wednesday, July 5th, like always. Every week we spend this paragraph highlighting a few choice comics from the current week’s New Releases. And there seem to be more New Comics every week than the week before, so this week we’re just going to trust that YOU, dear reader, have the skill to navigate this list and to find something new that you never even knew you can’t live without. Like Cullen Bunn’s UNHOLY GRAIL #1 (The legend of King Arthur is not the stuff of legends, but the fuel of nightmares). Or Cullen Bunn’s UNSOUND #2(Ashli uncovers a horrifying secret in the deeper levels of the asylum, and not everyone in her group will make it out alive). Or even Cullen Bunn’s DEADPOOL KILLS MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN #1 (Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe, again). Or even Cullen Bunn’s DEADPOOL KILLS MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN #1. But, you know, it’s your Cullen—CALL! We mean it’s your CALL. Thanks!
Oh my goodness, June has had so many new comics! And this, the final week of the month, is no exception! First of all is the epic team-up you never knew you HAD to read, BATMAN/ELMER FUDD #1. Right?? And then, the board game that became a movie you never knew you needed to read a comic about, CLUE #1! Speaking of movies, did you see and love Arrival last year? Well, screenwriter Eric Heisserer writes Valiant’s SECRET WEAPONS #1! There’s also SECRET EMPIRE #5, SAGA #44, HEROINES #2, EDGE OF VENOMVERSE #1 and so, so very much more.
