Oh and it's only a couple of weeks until FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, on Saturday 7th of May...so start getting ready!
OH AND CIVIL WAR STARTS THIS WEEK! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
ALIENS DEFIANCE #1 no messing around is not only a must for fans of the films but anyone that enjoys atmospheric horror and suspense. With the added bonus of local, Tristan Jones best art to date and written by Brian Wood don't miss this release! Hopefully Stephen has what to takes to turn the tide against the destruction of magic in the Marvel U but going onDOCTOR STRANGE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC #1, things aren't sounding to promising but then again there is also DOCTOR STRANGE #7 and DOCTOR STRANGE PREM HC VOL 01 WAY OF WEIRD to help with this magic jam.
After a little break since the previous issue, Miller, Azzarello and Kubert are back with that hard edged Batman with a heart of gold in DARK KNIGHT III MASTER RACE #4. MICRONAUTS #1 is the latest trip down childhood toy memory lane on offer from IDW, with the new adventures of the heroes from the Micro-verse with hopefully a little touch of Kirby. Do not be confused, ASTONISHING ANT-MAN TP VOL 01 EVERYBODY LOVES TEAM-UPS, is in fact the second collection of the Nick Spencer's Ant Man and it's a scoundrel heroes delight, showing us all again that some times doing thinks with the best intentions just isn't enough. Follow that with the collection about heroes in hock and in debt to a vicious and powerful super villain loan shark in PAYBACKS TP VOL 01 PAYBACKS A BITCH and you've got yourself quite the double bill.
SPACE MULLET TP VOL 01 ONE GAMBLE AT A TIME, we don't know much about this release beyond we hope it stars a hero with a Jack Burton hairstyle and attitude...but in space. We think it's worth a look in for that alone. The hype is strong around releases from Black Mask Comics and their latest, 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK #1 is no different. Join a group of awkward pre-teens as their world of fantasy gaming quickly changes to their involvement in a bank heist. The hard cover collection of BARTKIRA NUCLEAR ED HC pays tribute to both the classic Akira story being re-worked with Simpsons characters in the leads all while raising money for charity.
Nicola Scott and Greg Rucka see the release of their stunning Ledger winning, mystic cop drama BLACK MAGICK TP VOL 01 AWAKENING PART ONE. Follow the exploits of the convicts as cannon fodder for off world war conquest in BOOM's CLUSTER TP VOL 01. The ridiculous super hero wannabe antics continue in the next latest ONE PUNCH MAN GN VOL 06. And finally we get our hands on the new STEVEN UNIVERSE ORIGINAL GN VOL 01 TOO COOL FOR SC!
Also the new PREVIEWS for MAY also means plenty of new books to look at including the first ever IMAGE PLUS #1 magazine that not only features all of Images new titles but also an exclusive new Walking Dead story!
Anything else you spot that you need, just make sure to ask us about it before Wednesday!
