Super Sons #8


It’s a really cool multiverse-hopping book; you’re starting to see more teamwork between the super sons but they’re still not ready to admit they’re friends. I really dig this series, it’s just a lot more fun than anything else.

SO EXCITED for this. Bloodshot Reborn is easily one of the best titles Valiant has done, and I’m incredibly thrilled to see what’s next for their unstoppable super soldier, especially now that he has a family.

New Release Pick of the Week for 9/20/2017

Dark Ark #1

Dark Ark #1

AFTERSHOCK COMICS

(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Juan Doe
 

NEW SERIES!

The wickedness of mankind has moved the Creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an ark to save his family and the animals of the world. But this is not Noah’s story. For darker powers have commanded the sorcerer Shrae to build his own ark and save the unnatural creatures of the world-such as the vampires, the dragons, the naga, and the manticore. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters, where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law?

From writer Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Deadpool, Venom) and artist Juan Doe (AMERICAN MONSTER, WORLD READER) comes a sinister tale of biblical proportions that HAD to be told at AfterShock Comics.

New Release Pick of the Week for 8/23/2017

Nightwing The New Order #1

NIGHTWING THE NEW ORDER #1 (OF 6)

DC COMICS

(W) Kyle Higgins (A/CA) Trevor McCarthy
NIGHTWING: THE NEW ORDER is the story of a future world without “weapons”-where superpowers have been eliminated and outlawed. The man responsible? None other than Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Nightwing, now leader of a government task force called the Crusaders who are charged with hunting the remaining Supers. But when events transpire which turn the Crusaders’ aim toward Grayson’s own family, the former Boy Wonder must turn against the very system he helped create, with help from the very people he’s been hunting for years-the last metahumans of the DC Universe. Don’t miss this bold new vision from the team behind the New York Times bestseller BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM!
