New Books Starting This Week, September 21, 2016


In the aftermath of the battle with the Engineers, the surviving humans on LV-223 are wounded and scattered-and easy prey for a gathering horde of Aliens! The Colonial Marines get a taste of what it’s like to be at the bottom of the food chain!


“THE IMITATION OF LIFE” part one! Cyborg is thrown into conflict with every robotic threat to the DC Universe as a brand new era begins for Victor Stone, courtesy of writer John Semper Jr. (Spider-Man: The Animated Series) and artist Will Conrad (Angel & Faith)!


NEW STORY ARC STARTS NOW! •  When the Terrigen Cloud threatens to wash over a prison and the warden refuses to protect its mutant inmates, the Extraordinary X-Men take matters into their own hands…and stage a PRISON BREAK! •  And when Moon Girl takes it upon herself to solve the Terrigen crisis, she may just find an unlikely ally…


An unusual ghost hunt leads Hellboy to a spectral monkey with a message for a grieving family.


“The White Carnival” part 1! In a tale set between TEEN TITANS #24 and TEEN TITANS: REBIRTH #1, Raven takes a break from the team and moves to San Francisco to stay with her estranged aunt and face her most perilous challenge yet: high school! As Raven discovers more about her human side, one of her classmates goes missing under mysterious circumstances, and she must face an evil like none she’s known before!


THE REVOLUTION BEGINS! Explosions rip across the Earth-and all signs of blame point to OPTIMUS PRIME and the TRANSFORMERS! G.I. JOE refuses to go quietly-and they assemble heroes big enough to stop the invaders! ACTION MAN and M.A.S.K. fight for humanity-but where do ROM and the MICRONAUTS stand? Celebrating more than a decade of stories by IDW and HASBRO, this unprecedented bi-weekly event draws everything together-and leaves nothing standing. The REVOLUTION is here-TAKE A STAND!


A REVOLUTION tie-in one-shot! ROM’s enemies, the DIRE WRAITHS have infiltrated G.I. JOE at the highest levels, clashed with the TRANSFORMERS over ORE-13, and now… stalk a lone stranger? Why would evil aliens bent on world domination terrorize one anonymous person? The answer is bigger and more sinister than you’d ever imagine!


The God of Whispers has spread an omnipresent paranoia to every corner of the kingdom of Zhal; his spies hide in every hall spreading mistrust and fear. Adam Osidis, a dying knight from a disgraced house, must choose between joining a hopeless band of magic users in their desperate bid to free their world of the evil God, or accepting his promise to give Adam everything his heart desires.    Writer RICK REMENDER reteams with collaborators JEROME OPEÑA (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent) and MATT HOLLINGSWORTH (TOKYO GHOST, WYTCHES) to take you on a hard road through the strange fantasy world of Zhal. All men have surrendered their freedom for fear. Now, one last free man must choose.


“BETTER TOGETHER” part 1! Together again for the first time! Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The core of the World’s Greatest Heroes…but with a new Man of Steel, the bonds these three share will be tested and redefined by super-star writer/artist Francis Manapul. In this premiere issue, see the trio travel from Metropolis to Gotham City and beyond to learn what forces launched their heroic careers. But how will this journey of discovery lead them to a new threat?

Just read … Harley Quinn Suicide Squad April Fools’ Special

Jim Lee’s art is, as alwsys, great. The story was good, but the big thing is that THIS is the prelude for the post-Rebirth Suicide Squad starting in a few months, with what I think is a very interesting premise…

Just read … Batman Superman #30

Tom Taylor is becoming one if my favorite writers. This was the last issue of a self contained Batman/Superman in space story, and he hit all the right notes with both lead characters.

Just read … Doctor Strange #6

I have been a fan of Doctor Strange in comics for a long time, but thus new series keeps blowing me away. Magic is a tough thing to write without it solving the problems it causes, but Jason Aaron has a perfect grasp of the costs and benefits of magic. The art by Chris Bachalo is Perfect! Just friggin’ perfect!

Just read … avengers Standoff: Alpha

Nice art, great dialogue. This is the prelude to what will be Civil War II in the Marvel Universe, but it already has a strong cast and a very accessible premise. Good guys fighting bad guys will ensue!
