We’re still in the embryonic stage of the new year, but there are always New Comics! And by ‘new’ we mean #1’s! STRANGERS IN PARADISE XXV #1 America's favorite couple is back! Francine and Katchoo are living the dream until they learn a former Parker Girl is in hiding and writing a tell-all book about the wicked empire Darcy Parker built with Katchoo at her side. Determined to stop her, Katchoo enlists the aid of her mercenary sister Tambi and the hunt is on! RWBY Never before revealed adventures of Team RWBY featuring Ruby, Weiss, Blake & Yang before academy and before they were teammates. Plus, a Team JNPR battle featuring a much-younger Jaune! ICE CREAM MAN #1 Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy...there's a flavor for everyone's misery. DAYS OF HATE #1 The United States of America, 2022. The loss that ripped them apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again. This is a story of a war. DAMAGE #1 (The New Age of DC Heroes) Tasked as the government's own living, breathing, ticking time bomb, Ethan retains no control when the monster takes over. Cheaper than a nuclear warhead and twice as effective, Ethan fights to rein in the damage he unleashes when the beast inside him springs free for one hour a day. FURTHER ADV OF NICK WILSON #1 For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punchline. And by ‘new’ we also mean New This Week, like KILL OR BE KILLED #15 and KILL OR BE KILLED VOL 03, MIGHTY THOR #703, BATMAN #39, LEGEND OF KORRA VOL 02, RUMBLE #2, VENOM INC OMEGA, and so much more!
Welcome! Have you recovered from New Year’s yet? We hope so because comics are not slowing down! AVENGERS #675 is the start of the huge “No Surrender” storyline and has a super-fancy cover! MISTER MIRACLE #6 wraps up the first half of Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ epic Fourth World tale! THE DAMNED #7 is just so damned good! See what I did there? OLD MAN HAWKEYE #1 gives us a glimpse into Clint Barton’s trouble future on the road to Old Man Logan! MECH CADET YU VOL 01 collects the first 4 issues of this fun, giant mech series. And there are 18 new Enamel Pins, mainly from Image Comics! All this and more await you in the second week of 2018’s New Comics.
It’s a fresh new year of comics, and 2018 is starting strong! First up is a slate of Batman comics (you like Batman, right?) with BATMAN #38 (Batman and Wonder Woman!), BATMAN AND THE SIGNAL #1 (from the pages of Dark Nights Metal), and Sean Gordon Murphy’s BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT #4! Next up is a “New World Order” in WALKING DEAD #175! Mark Russell does with SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES #1 what he did with The Flintstones and Prez, and it’s getting rave reviews. It’s a reunion of everyone’s favorite star-crossed mutant romance in ROGUE & GAMBIT #1! Or is it? Archie has a new all-ages comics that’s out of this world with COSMO #1. And there’s SO MUCH MORE! (PAPER GIRLS #19, CAPTAIN AMERICA #697, RISE OF BLACK PANTHER #1, and Isabella Rotman’s SIREN SCHOOL). Oh! Don't overlook the SAGA THE WILL & LYING CAT 2-PACK action figure set! Thanks for everything, 2017, but it looks like 2018 has us covered.
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.
