FOREVER EVIL CONTINUES THIS WEDNESDAY WITH FOREVER EVIL #2, AS THE DC UNIVERSE'S ONLY SALVATION LIES IN IT'S WORST VILLAINS... AND THE ROAD TO CHANGE IS PAVED!
We're so pumped about the DC event FOREVER EVIL, as it really is delivering some of the best stuff we've seen to come out of the DC Universe since Pre-NEW 52.
With the heroes of the DCU missing in action, and an alternate Earth's Justice League... known as the Crime Syndicate.. taking over things; the villains of the DC Universe must unite to save the world they yearn to conquer themselves.
Featuring the writing of GEOFF JOHNS (BLACKEST NIGHT, AQUAMAN, FLASHPOINT) and the art of superstar artist DAVID FINCH (BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT), FOREVER EVIL has been one of the most satisfying event books we've seen in a while.
Spinning out of the events of the TRINITY WAR, Forever Evil gives us a very cool look at Lex Luthor, and builds upon many other iconic DC bad guys in a major way.
After a chilling debut last month, not to mention a full month of Villains one-shots to showcase all the players, big and small, we cannot wait to sit down with FOREVER EVIL #2 this week.
Wanna hop aboard? We've got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #2.

Literature: overrated. Morality: expendable. Tonight is right for some over-the-top sex and violence! Bringing the flavor of midnight exploitation flicks to comics, Grindhouse delivers two stories to start this week with "Bee Vixens from Mars", pitting a southern Latina one-eyed deputy against lusty alien chicks bent on laying eggs in the entire male population.

SAMURAIS VS. VAMPIRES!
You may or may not know this about me, Third Eye Faithful, but I am a HUGE fan of Samurai movies, and heck, Samurai stories in general.
So, whenever something comes down the pike that ventures into that genre -- my interest is piqued.
This week, IMAGE COMICS & TOP COW, release a very interesting little piece of work with BUSHIDO: WAY OF THE WARRIOR.
Kichiro is an outsider in feudal Japan. Lacking the Japanese blood that would allow him to become a samurai, Kichiro must fulfill his dreams of serving the shogun in a less traditional manner... by eliminating every foreign supernatural threat that rears it's fangs.
Yes, Kichiro is the shogun's undead executioner -- the warrior he dispatches to take out all sorts of supernatural oddities that would inspire fear in many other samurai.
What an awesome concept, and an incredible execution -- great art, great storytelling, all around great debut.

THE OCCULTIST THIS WEDNESDAY!

UNCANNY X-FORCE'S FAN-FAVORITE, FANTOMEX, GETS THE SPOTLIGHT IN A NO-HOLDS-BARRED NEW MATURE READERS MINI-SERIES: FANTOMEX: MAX
One of our favorite new Marvel characters in the last decade has been the enigmatic, yet totally bad-ass FANTOMEX.
We thought he was very cool when first introduced during Grant Morrison's X-Men run, but it wasn't until Rick Remender's UNCANNY X-FORCE: THE DARK ANGEL SAGA that FANTOMEX really became a character we were intrigued by.
This week, a four-issue mini-series kicks off focusing on the cold-blooded international Super-Thief, and the strange, espionage-charged encounters he finds himself up against.
Sexy secret agents, weird weaponry, vintage champagne, and a damsel in distress... all under the uncensored MAX banner that gave us awesome runs of PUNISHER and NICK FURY.
Not familiar with the character? Imagine if you took GAMBIT and mixed him with Stormshadow from GI JOE; that sums up the tone and feel of FANTOMEX well.
A mutant thief who's ability makes him ultra-skilled with firearms, as well as a knack for pulling off some major thefts, FANTOMEX is the man who put a bullet in Apocalypse's head -- yeah, he's pretty bad-ass.
JONATHAN HICKMAN, WRITER OF EAST OF WEST, CONTINUES HIS NEW AVATAR SERIES: GOD IS DEAD THIS WEDNESDAY WITH GOD IS DEAD #2
We're huge fans of Hickman's work on EAST OF WEST, PAX ROMANA, Marvel hits like INFINITY, and more, so needless to say: we're really digging his venture into the ultra-violent realm of AVATAR PRESS comics.
In GOD IS DEAD, Hickmam brings the wrath of the gods to comics in a major way.
Modern man turns all his technology and destruction to bear against the deities of old, as they return to Earth to reclaim it from humanity.
But, what good are guns, tanks,a nd even nuclear missiles against the power of the divine?
In their hubris, humans have ruled for too long.
Now the gods of legend rule and to disobey them is dead.
Something though, is brewing in just below the surface of the newly returned powers -- a war of the gods themselves!
This book is rad -- picture this: Zeus, Kali, Odin, and so many other deities have returned to Earth to reclaim their domain as it's rulers.
Of course, humanity freaks out -- and tries to go to war with them; and it doesn't work out too well for them.
Loved the first issue, can't wait for the second, snag yourself a copy of 1 ( still in stock and available ) and catch up to this week's #2.
