HAWKEYE DEBUTS IN HIS OWN ONGOING SERIES FROM SUPERSTAR CREATIVE TEAM OF MATT FRACTION ("FEAR ITSELF", "IMMORTAL IRON FIST") and DAVID AJA ("IMMORTAL IRON FIST")
Third Eye Faithful: you must get this comic. Trust me -- even if you're not a big superhero fan. Even if you're not a big Hawkeye fan, just trust me: you will love it.
Every bit as trailblazing, and innovative as Mark Waid's recent debut run of DAREDEVIL, the new HAWKEYE series is gorgeous, and a pure joy to read. The artwork of David Aja is amazing, and some of his best work to date, and Matt Fraction's bringing some of his best storytelling since he began his run of INVINCIBLE IRON MAN.
This is seriously top notch Marvel Comics greatness, and we cannot get enough of it.
Fraction and Aja take a very cool, very sleek action-packed approach to Hawkeye, mixing the whole aspect of being a trained sniper, with the fantastic element of being an Avenger.
The way that they handle the marksmanship of Hawkeye, and they bring the world around him to life, is really a testament to just plain great comics. It's so cool to see a character with such a 'real world' kind of skill being set against the context of a bigger-than-life superhero universe.
Damn, this comic is good! Both stylistically, and story-wise, HAWKEYE is going to be one of the best reads you're going home with this week, Third Eye Faithful, and this debut issue shows nothing but promise for the rest of the run.
I could gush, and gush about it, but all I'll say is that it takes one of the coolest and most under-used characters in the Marvel Universe, and gives him one of the best creative teams in comics. Fraction and Aja worked pure magic on IMMORTAL IRON FIST a few years ago (available in trade paperback if you haven't read it yet -- we HIGHLY recommend checking it out!), so it looks like lightning will strike twice with this new HAWKEYE series.
What's it about? Hawkeye, in the wake of AVENGERS VS. X-MEN, and as we near closer to MARVEL NOW (I feel that Hawkeye and Captain Marvel have both been early bird MARVEL NOW releases that will play a bigger role in the main roll-out this Fall), Hawkeye finds himself being brought down into the seedy underbelly of the Marvel Univese, with ex-Young Avenger (and Hakweye replacement) Kate Bishop by his side.
This book is downright impressive, and if you like just plain great comics, we highly recommend hopping aboard.
The ANIMAL MAN / SWAMP thing crossover, "ROTWORLD", begins in this Wednesday's ANIMAL MAN & SWAMP THING! Get into these two amazing titles with this new series!
Featuring "BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS" writer SCOTT SNYDER!
Both of these titles have been consistently two of the best DC NEW 52 reads on the shelves, and we've all been waiting since day 1 to see the darker side of the DCU eventually cross paths.
Both Lemire and Snyder have worked closely together for the entirety of the runs of these two, laying the seeds and groundwork for ROTWORLD all throughout, and now, it begins.
Haven't been reading ANIMAL MAN, or SWAMP THING? The issue #12s of these two series are the perfect jumping on points for these completely top shelf books. With ROTWORLD gearing up to be one of the most exciting crossovers of the Summer, Snyder and Lemire have done a great job of making these an easy point to jump aboard the titles.
I won't keep rambling about how great these books already are, but if you haven't read them, or if you're jumping on with ROTWORLD and are curious about backtracking, we do have issues 1-11 of both series in stock now to catch you up to this week's #12s, or you can jump on fresh with the 12s for ROTWORLD. Either way: these books rule, and you gotta read them!
So, WHAT IS ROTWORLD? In short: it's a nightmarish look at a dystopian DCU. Wanna know more? Here's the deal, both SWAMP THING and ANIMAL MAN connect to primitive and eternal sources of energy known as "The Green" and "The Red." There are very few characters that can connect to these sources, and even fewer that happen to be, by definition, "superheroes."
So, picture this: a decaying Hawkman plummeting from the skies, a rotting Superman shambling down the streets... basically: it's a world where if you don't have a connection to the Red or Green, you're going to get turned into a rot monster or die.
Well, except for John Constantine, for some reason, he manages to survive. :)
This is going to be one hell of an awesome story, as we're shown a look at a DCU that's literally being cursed by the plague of the Rot, and turned into otherworldly horrors... and at the heart of it all? Animal Man and Swamp Thing -- one's a failed hero searching for meaning, and the other, a reluctant hero searching for peace.
YOU WANT THESE COMICS, Third Eye Faithful. TRUST ME, storytelling, artwork, everything is amazing, and this is the perfect time to jump aboard two of our favorite DC series.
Wanna backtrack and get the earlier issues? We've got issues 1-11 of both series in stock and available now to catch you up!
AVENGERS VS X-MEN #9 *ACT 3 BEGINS!* -- The third and final act of the biggest Marvel storyline in ages begins this Wednesday as the road to MARVEL NOW officially begins!
Here it is, Third Eye Faithful, the final chapters of AVENGERS VS. X-MEN begin in this Wednesday's AVX #9, and we couldn't be more stoked, Third Eye Faithful.
Avengers vs. X-Men has turned out to be one of the best Marvel story lines in ages, and may go down as the best summer Event storyline they've ever done. It's been THAT good.
Great storytelling, great artwork, the entire AvX event has been a huge home-run for Marvel, and we really cannot recommend it enough.
As we get closer and closer to the final 12th chapter, we're starting to see that this is paving the way for the highly anticipated MARVEL NOW initiative, which plans to take many of Marvel's high-profile titles and begin them again at issue #1. We couldn't be more excited about this, as the creative teams, and the directions of the titles are all looking amazing.
As for AvX itself: it's freakin' awesome. The Phoenix has return to Earth, and an increasingly weary and defensive Cyclops has embraced it alongside four other senior X-Men members to become the Phoenix Five. A god-like assortment of mutants who, under control of the Phoenix, have decided to "fix" the planet Earth.
Of course, "fixing" things, means massive war, destruction, and more.. and the Avengers, now, at the end of their ropes, are going to have to do everything in their power to save the planet, heck, the galaxy, from the Phoenix and it's avatars of destruction.
Folks: this storyline has it all, and each issue improves upon the last. We cannot recommend it enough!
Not reading AVENGERS VS X-MEN? We've got issues 0-8 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #9.. get on board, and get ready for MARVEL NOW.
Want the tie-ins to AvX? We have everything in stock and available now. Consult our checklist below to get the full scoop on all of the tie-ins to AvX.

IMAGE COMICS DEBUTS THINK TANK #1 THIS WEDNESDAY... AND IT'S MISSION: FIGHTING THE MAN.. WITH SCIENCE!
Here's a new IMAGE series that caught my eye while putting together our orders, and folks, I'm glad it did, because it's pretty darn cool.
In THINK TANK, we're introduced to Dr. David Loren, a man who is many things: child prodigy, inventor, genius, slacker.. mass murderer? And, when a military think tank's smartest scientist decides he can no longer stomach creating weapons of destruction, will he be able to think his way out of his dilemma or find himself subject to the machinations of smaller men?
This is a very cool, tech-and-science-heavy kind of read that plays around with notions of anti-establishment ideas, and the ramifications of being one of the smartest men alive.
Really fun read, we recommend snagging a copy this Wednesday, and giving it a shot!
DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE #1-- The most kick-ass DEADPOOL series yet arrives this Wednesday, delivering a self-contained, ultra-violent, sleek, and stylistic look at The Merc With a Mouth!
A few years ago, DEADPOOL was everywhere, and there was some awesome DEADPOOL stuff, and then some not-so-awesome DEADPOOL stuff. Since then, things have quieted down a bit for the Merc with a Mouth, but let's face it: he's still awesome.
So, when we saw this new limited series launching, the first DEADPOOL limited series we've seen in a minute, I gotta tell you: we got pretty stoked.
Not just cause we were stoked to see some new DEADPOOL, but because the premise and creative team on this book are pretty damn good. I really feel that this is going to end up being a sleeper hit for Marvel, and if you're even remotely a Deadpool fan -- you need to get this book!
So, what's the story on this? Well, we all know that Deadpool is insane, right? I mean, he's got voices in his head, and for the most part, that just means we get lots of funny DEADPOOL stories.
But, what if everything you thought was funny about DEADPOOL... was actually just disturbing?
What if he decided to kill everyone and everything that makes up the Marvel Universe?
What if he actually pulled it off? It'd probably still be funny, but... you know, not in that wacky light-hearted DEADPOOL way we've come to know and love.
And, this is why we're excited about DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE!
At his core, DEADPOOL has always been a dark character with a lot of satire and dark humor with him... and, while managing to blend that humor, and insanity with a deeply twisted, and horrific story, SIXTH GUN writer CULLEN BUNN and artist Dalibor Talajic are putting together something that is pretty damn entertaining.
THE NEW 52 HAWKGIRL SOARS IN EARTH-2 #4 THIS WEDNESDAY! JUMP ON BOARD AND FIND OUT WHY THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST DC NEW 52 TITLES TO LAUNCH SINCE JUSTICE LEAGUE & BATMAN
Also featuring the NEW 52 Debut of ATOM SMASHER!
EARTH-2 has really risen to the top as one of our favorite of the DC NEW 52, and it just continues to get better and better as the series moves forward.
Providing the introduction of the NEW 52 Justice Society, and serving as one of the core "foundation-building" titles of the NEW 52 (much like JUSTICE LEAGUE), EARTH-2 helps make sense of DC's multiple Earths, and shows us a fascinating alternate Earth where Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are killed all at once, and a new League must be formed in their wake.. or should we say, a new Society?
With the NEW 52 incarnations of ALAN SCOTT the GREEN LANTERN and JAY GARRICK the FLASH both having been introduced already, we're pretty excited to see the NEW 52 debuts of HAWKGIRL and ATOM SMASHER, two of our favorite JSA members.
As big fans of Geoff Johns and David Goyer's JSA run from the late '90s and early 2000s, we're stoked to see the JUSTICE SOCIETY returning to glory in this new cutting-edge series.
The creative team on here is also incredible, with STARMAN writer JAMES ROBINSON doing some of his best work to date, and artist NICOLA SCOTT blowing our minds with her hyper-dynamic artwork. If you're a fan of the GEOFF JOHNS / JIM LEE JUSTICE LEAGUE run, you need to get on board with EARTH 2, Third Eye Faithful.
Wanna get caught up? We've got issues 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to Wednesday's #4.
HARVEST #1 -- A WILD MIX OF THE TV SHOW "DEXTER", THE COMIC BOOK SERIES "100 BULLETS", AND THE STOLEN BODY ORGAN TRADE! ANOTHER KILLER NEW READ FROM IMAGE COMICS!
Image is dropping another new series this week that looks pretty damn cool as well, with HARVEST #1.
Picture this: Human traffickers. Rogue medical teams. Yakuza run organ mills and a six-year old drug fiend. Welcome to Dr. Benjamin Dane's nightmare. His only way out? Bring down the man who set him up by reclaiming organs already placed in some very powerful people.
Folks, this is a story of stolen kidneys, double-crosses, and political intrigue. A serious case of medical grade revenge.
Give it a shot this Wednesday!
COMICS LEGEND NEAL ADAMS RETURNS TO MARVEL COMICS WITH THE FIRST X-MEN THIS WEDNESDAY, TELLING A TALE OF THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE X-MEN..
Before Xavier's team even existed, Wolverine and Sabretooth worked together.. alongside some interesting team-mates!
The legendary artist and creator who brought us GIANT-SIZE X-MEN #1, and redefined what we knew about the X-Men back in the '70s when he introduced the line-up consisting of COLOSSUS, STORM, WOLVERINE, BANSHEE, and more returns to Marvel with an X-Men story that is downright EPIC.
This is the secret history of the X-Men... before Xavier's team even existed.
Yes, before Xavier formed his own X-Men, Wolverine, Sabretooth, and others worked alongside one another as a covert team of powerful mutants.
This one looks to be a blast, and we can't wait to check it out.
Joining Neal Adams is the cult-favorite writer, CHRISTOS GAGE, who has done some incredible stuff with both AVENGERS ACADEMY, and his creator-owned Avatar Press series ABSOLUTION.
SUPERMAN ACTION COMICS: THE MEN OF STEEL HARDCOVER VOL.1 DELIVERS THE FIRST ARC OF GRANT MORRISON'S INCREDIBLE "NEW 52" TAKE ON THE MAN OF STEEL!
Grant Morrison's epic ACTION COMICS run gets it's first arc collected into a slick deluxe hardcover from DC Comics this week, and folks, if you've been waiting for a must-read SUPERMAN story -- this is it!
This hardcover collects issues 1-8 (for only $24.99, that's a deal!), and provides one of the crucial foundation-building stories of the DC NEW 52.
Grant Morrison, the same man responsible for ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE INVISIBLES, and much more, pairs up with superstar artist RAGS MORALES (IDENTITY CRISIS) to tell us of the Man of Steel's earliest days starting out in Metropolis.
We're shown a look at Superman as a brash, arrogant hot-head who has a strong sense of justice, and a strong will to see that it gets served.
I mean, in the first issue, he literally throws a crooked politician off a building, and catches him only seconds before he hits the ground; threatening to do this over and over again until he confesses to his crimes.
The reinvention and reimaginings of the various Superman friends and foes is also very awesome. Lex Luthor is freakin' downright despicable, and it may be the best villain portrayal of the character yet. Metallo is also just a cool, and the twist that Morrison spins on all of these iconic characters is perfect.
This series is set a few years before the events of JUSTICE LEAGUE, and shows a rare glimpse not only at the formative years of SUPERMAN, but also the early beginnings of the DC NEW 52.
Highly recommended, snag yourself a copy this Wednesday at Third Eye!
HOWARD CHAYKIN RETURNS TO HIS CRIME NOIR ROOTS WITH HIS DARK AND DISTURBING CRIME NOIR, BLACK KISS IN BLACK KISS II #1
BLACK KISS is one of those classic, yet highly underrated comics of the '80s and '90s that is often talked about in the dark corners of comic history.
Much like Brat Pack, it's the kind of subversive, and dark take on a genre that pulls the reader into it's story, and gives you that sense of danger that comics packed a punch with back in the days of the EC Comics like VAULT OF HORROR, and CRIME SUSPENSE STORIES.
I was a big fan of the original BLACK KISS series, and when I saw that Chaykin was returning to the series with a brand new limited series from IMAGE COMICS, I couldn't help but get pumped.
This is a dark, violent, and intriguing crime noir story that will pull you in, and not let go.
What's it about? Sex, death, and the movies -- what else really matters? Nearly twenty five years ago, Howard Chaykin brought the '80s to a close, and comics to thje brink, with his landmark noir thriller, BLACK KISS. Now, after years of anticipation, he's back with a new six-part mini-series that tells the story behind that legendary story.
There's a lot to Black Kiss, and honestly, it's better to just ask us about the jist of what it's about, and the scoop on it. Folks, this is the kind of supernaturally-charged crime noir that pushes it to the limits, and will leave you on the edge of your seats.
Wanna get into the first series? We'll have plenty copies of the original BLACK KISS hardcover on hand this week to get you caught up for the new series; or if you just want to jump straight into the new series, you can, as it's a fresh story, and is new-reader friendly.
HIGHER EARTH #3 - One of the best sci-fi series in comics continues this Wednesday, delivering more multiple Earth awesomeness!
A must-read from SACRIFICE writer SAM HUMPHRIES
Sam Humphries's new BOOM! series, HIGHER EARTH, has us hooked in a major way, Third Eye Faithful. This fantastic science fiction series brings a very cool, very Whedon by way of Blade Runner vibe to comics, and we're loving EVERY freakin' second of it.
Higher Earth is the story of a future where the human race keeps destroying it's Earths, and has to seek out new, and better ones to replace the previous ones.
The problem? In their wake, a whole mess of lost and wasted Earths are left behind, and a class system begins to develop where only the most prestigious and elite are allowed on Higher Earth.
The story follows two adventurers, one who's cut from the Han Solo kind of mold, and one who's a very cool, very Martha Washington-kind of bad-ass, as they jump from world to world.
Imagine SLIDERS meets BLADE RUNNER with a dash of FIREFLY, and a whole lot of awesome, and that sums up the greatness that is HIGHER EARTH.
Wanna jump on board? We've got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #3.
BEASTS OF BURDEN: NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH ONE-SHOT DELIVERS MORE OF OUR FAVORITE OCCULT-INVESTIGATING GANG OF DOGS... AND CAT!
From MILK AND CHEESE writer EVAN DORKIN and SCARY GODMOTHER artist JILL THOMPSON
P.S -- THIS COMIC IS AWESOME, READ IT!
We freakin' love BEASTS OF BURDEN, Third Eye Faithful. Whenever a new BEASTS OF BURDEN thing comes out, we feel it's our duty to shout it out, and turn a whole new crop of you onto the awesomeness that is this series.
This stand-alone one-shot is a fantastic new read featuring the four-legged, occult-investigating team that're doing their best to protect their home, Burden Hill, from a chicken-stealing goblin, a frightful basilisk, and a strange lost herd of sheep.
We love the writing, and the personalities that Dorkin and Thompson provide to these characters, making them more likable and relatable than a lot of human characters.
Combine that with the almost Mike Mignola-esque level of detail and craft when putting together these occult mysteries.
Folks, do yourselves a favor, try something that's both frightening, and funny, and snag a copy of BEASTS OF BURDEN: NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH this Wednesday.
JOE HILL RETURNS WITH THE CAPE 1969 #2 AS THE ORIGINS OF THE DARK ARTIFACT ARE REVEALED IN THIS KILLER PREQUEL TO LAST YEAR'S "THE CAPE"
Joe Hill blew our minds last year with THE CAPE, a story where we saw a down-on-his-luck 20-something transformed into a homicidal superhuman who did everything from dropping his girlfriend to her death to throwing a running chainsaw into the engine of a plane.
Now, he's doing it all over again with this killer prequel to THE CAPE, showing us the origins of the dark artifact from the first series.
Shot down, imprisoned, beaten, tortured, his crew murdered -- none of these things will compare to what Captain Chase will experience next. Watch as his sanity is tested and he struggles to keep his grip on reality.
Wanna jump on board? We've got both Joe Hill's THE CAPE hardcover, collecting the original series, AND THE CAPE 1969 #1 in stock now to get you caught up to speed.
IMAGE CONTINUES ONE OF IT'S BIGGEST HITS OF 2012 WITH MIND THE GAP #3 THIS WEDNESDAY
Mind the Gap is one of our favorite new series of the year, and it's got us on the edge of our seats waiting for more, with each and every issue.
The combination of Jim McCann's stellar storytelling, and the amazing artwork of MORNING GLORIES cover artist Rodin Esquejo is downright awesome, and the tale they're crafting is incredible.
So, what's it about? Well, first off: if you're a MORNING GLORIES fan, you will love this. Secondly: the story is pretty darn cool, it's a very "LOST"-like kind of tale, about a young woman who is mysteriously assaulted on a subway platform, and everyone is a suspect.
She finds herself comatose, and is now existing in a purgatory-like state where coma patients go during their coma, and that's where they remain until they wake up, or.. pass on.
In this week's MIND THE GAP #3, lines are forming and fingers begin pointing as a clue to the identity of Elle's attacker is found. Friends and families are strained, and a mysterious figure lurks in the shadows, ready to make a game-changing move. Meanwhile, Elle's struggle to regain her memory finds her starting from the very first memory she has -- and it's a shocker.
Folks, this is just plain great comics, and we highly ecommend snagging it if you haven't already.
We've got plenty of copies of issue 1 & 2 in stock and available now to catch you up to this week's #3.
PETER PARKER SPIDER-MAN #156.1DELIVERS THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF NEW ONE-SHOT STORIES SHOWING NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN TALES FROM THE WEBSLINGER'S HISTORY
Celebrate 50 years of the Wallcrawler with these special one-shot stories telling brand new stories from past periods of Spider-Man's existence.
It all kicks off with this week's PETER PARKER SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #156.1, which showcases the JOHN ROMITA JR era of Spidey from the late '90s.
This run was a real blast, and I remember really enjoying those story arcs, so it's cool to see them revisiting it in this one-shot.
Featuring classic Spidey writer ROGER STERN, this one's a must-read.
MONOCYTE ARRIVES IN HARDCOVER THIS WEDNESDAY DELIVERING A STUNNING READ WITH AMAZING ARTWORK AND A KILLER STORY!
A must for fans of H.R GIGER, horror/fantasy ala DARK TOWER, and more!
MONOCYTE was another big favorite of our's last year, and when we saw that IDW was putting out a gorgeous, deluxe hardcover edition of the series, well, hot damn, we thought that was a stroke of genius.
'Cause, folks, let me tell you, if there's one book that begged for a nice, pretty hardcover, it's MONOCYTE. This book is GORGEOUS. It's the kind of dark fantasy story that will strike a chord with fans of H.R Giger or Brom's artwork, and the storytelling delivers the kind of fascinating sci-fi/fantasy story that's reminiscent of Frank Frazetta's DEATH DEALER, and Stephen King's DARK TOWER.
In MONOCYTE, two warring immortal races rule a scarred world where time has no meaning. Death (Azrael) sits impotent, quietly planning his restoration. He summons the Monocyte, a forgotten immortal necromancer who long ago chose sleep in his failed quest to die. With a fatal pact sealed, Monocyte strikes out as Azrael's vicious proxy to do the one thing that has been near-impossible: deliver death to the ageless inhabitants of their world.
Folks, this book looks great, and we highly recommend snagging it if you're into the dark fantasy stuff.
BEFORE WATCHMEN: NITE-OWL #2 SHOWS A RARE GLIMPSE AT THE GOLDEN AGE OF RORSCHACH AND NITE-OWL!
The BEFORE WATCHMEN books have been so darn good, it's ridiculous, and we really loved the first issue of NITE-OWL from SUPERMAN EARTH ONE / THOR / RISING STARS writer J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI, and father & son team ANDY & JOE KUBERT.
This book did a fantastic job of introducing Dan Dreidberg, and fleshing out his background, while providing some very rare, and very human insight into the world of WATCHMEN.
And, in this week's issue #2 -- we get some Rorschach, you know you're stoked. :)
Wanna get on board? We have BEFORE WATCHMEN: NITE-OWL #1 in stock now to catch you up to #2, and we've also got all the other BEFORE WATCHMEN books in stock now to get you up to date!

TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION ONE #82 ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY, DELIVERING THE SECOND ISSUE IN THE NEW G1 TRANSFORMERS COMIC SERIES THAT PICKS UP WHERE THE MARVEL SERIES LEFT OFF!
The G1 Transformers saga continues in the new IDW series that picks up where the Marvel series originally ended.
Now, two decades after the final conflict for Cybertron has taken place, there's a new threat that's facing both the Autobots and the Decepticons, and that's what we're seeing in the new REGENERATION ONE series.
This month, the spotlight shines on ex-Dinobot commander GRIMLOCK, as he continues his quest for a means to restore his ability to change modes, which leads him to Nebulos -- a world off-limits to Transformers, where a welcome that's more incendiary than warm awaits him.
Plus, Kup and the Wreckers find themselves stranded, hunted, and in a whole world of pain.
THE HYPERNATURALS #2 FOLLOWS UP ON THE STELLAR FIRST ISSUE OF THE NEW CREATOR-OWNED BOOM! SERIES FROM "ANNIHILATION" & "THANOS IMPERATIVE" writers DAN ABNETT & ANDY LANNING
A must-read for fans of the big cosmic odyssey stuff that Abnett & Lanning have done on WAR OF KINGS, THANOS IMPERATIVE, and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
We loved all the killer cosmic stuff that Abnett & Lanning did on books like GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, ANNIHILATION, THANOS IMPERATIVE, and WAR OF KINGS, so when Boom! launched HYPERNATURALS last month, we knew we were in for a real treat.
What's it about? It's the far future; the human race has finally colonized the galaxy, preserving an era of prosperity that's only possible because of the Hypernaturals.
They're a celebrated, galaxy-wide superhero task force that keeps the peace. That is, until they all mysteriously vanish. Now as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it's up to a group of retired and long-forgotten Hypernaturals -- and their novice recruits -- to save the galaxy from complete destruction.
Imagine Abnett & Lanning writing GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY without any rules whatsoever, and that sums up the awesomeness that is HYPERNATURALS!
Wanna jump on board? We've got issue #1 in stock now to catch you up to #2.
DEADWORLD: WAR OF THE DEAD #1 DELIVERS A FRESH, AND GORE-PACKED TAKE ON THE ZOMBIE GENRE!
DEADWORLD is a long-time favorite of mine, featuring stand-alone stories set in a unique zombie apocalypse kind of world, and the creators behind it have been doing the zombie comic thing for quite some time now.
However, it's been a while since they've done something recently, and this brand new weekly limited series is shaping up to be the perfect entry point for those of you who may have never read DEADWORLD before.
In DEADWORLD, the zombies have over run the Earth, and a small outpost, remnants of a twisted scientists' scheme to defeat the plague is all that holds out against the army of King Zombie.
Their secret weapon are the Lepers -- victims of a bizarre experiment that left them with dead flesh in breathing husks with skin that even zombies won't touch.
We love the fascinating take on the living dead in DEADWORLD, as it's a look at zombies that have some sort of sentience. Somewhere between CROSSED and the WALKING DEAD exists DEADWORLD, and for those of you who're into the horror stuff, you'll love this.
