MARVEL NOW Wave 2: COMICS LEGEND WARREN ELLIS (Transmetropolitan, Planetary, and more) kicks off MOON KNIGHT #1 this Wednesday!
Oh man. I am so excited for this week's MOON KNIGHT #1, it's... well, it's pretty ridiculous. Seriously. And, make no mistake, while I've got a major fondness for the character of Moon Knight, and some incredible runs from years past -- that's not what has me stoked.
No, it's the fact that one of the best writers in the last 2 decades of comics is returning back to a regular monthly title with the debut of this new MOON KNIGHT -- and he's absolutely kicking ass in all ways here.
That's right, Third Eye Faithful, Warren Ellis, the man responsible for some of the 21st century's most influential comics and graphic novels, ranging from Transmetropolitan to Planetary to the Authority and beyond, is the man behind Marc Spector now -- and it's gonna be rad.
PLUS: the art team of Declan Shalvey & Jordie Bellaire is top notch, and really delivers a big time visual punch that makes the book stand out in a very special way.
In MOON KNIGHT #1, Marc Spector is MOON KNIGHT.. or is he?
It's hard to tell these days, especially when New York's wildest vigilante protects the street with two-fisted justice and three -- that's right, count 'em -- different personalities.
But, even with the mystical force of Khonshu fueling his cruse, how does the night's greatest detective save a city that's as twisted as he is?
The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Marvel's most mind-bending adventure begins now as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New York's most bizarre mysteries.
Batman + True Detective + Marvel Universe = MOON KNIGHT!

AUTEUR #1 -- ONI PRESS, PUBLISHERS OF LETTER 44, HELHEIM & more DELIVER ANOTHER HIT WITH THE TWISTED HOLLYWOOD SPIRAL OF THE AUTEUR!
This one really caught our eye when checking out the new reads for March, and we recommend checking it out to those of you who dig stuff like CHEW, TODD THE UGLIEST KID ON EARTH, THE SIDEKICK, and last week's REVENGE.
Fresh off the biggest bomb in Hollywood history, disgraced and desperate producer Nathan T.Rex enters a downward spiral of drugs and depravity in a quest to resurrect his career and save his soul.
Over budget and behind schedule on the latest installment of the horror franchise, Presidents Day, T.Rex is backed into a corner by bad publicity, a crap project, and a jerk studio exec, but finds salvation at a strip club by huffing glue, and a chance encounter with cable news.
Welcome to the most deranged and hilarious comic we've read in quite some time, Third Eye Faithful.
Snag yourself a copy this Wednesday and give it a shot!
AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #4 CONTINUES THE ZOMBIE MADNESS OF THIS SLEEPER HIT THIS WEDNESDAY!
This new ongoing series that launched last Fall has kept us hooked with each issue, and the craziness of this week's #4 is no exception.

With two more members of our beloved gang infected by the dreadful zombie-virus, Riverdale's one sanctuary -- Lodge Mansion -- has been compromised.
The kids are left to make a significant decision -- do they stay and fight or flee the only town they've ever known?
Meanwhile, Archie makes a horrific discovery in his own home, one that may cost him his life!

In chapter 7, THE RIFT, Avatar Aang asks his friends to help him honor Yangchen's Festival -- one of the highest Air Nomad holidays, which hasn't been celebrated in over one hundred years.
However, cryptic visits from the spirit of Avatar Yangchen herself lead Aang to discover a jointly owned Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom refinery -- operating on land sacred to the Airbenders!
Is this the cause of the pollution Aang finds there, or is a more mysterious menace afoot?

MAX BEMIS, writer of POLARITY and singer of SAY ANYTHING, debuts his new seriesEVIL EMPIRE this Wednesday
We were blown away last year by Max Bemis's comic book debut with POLARITY, an ultra-violent, uber-sharp take on superpowers and mental health.
So, when we saw he had something new on the way from Polarity publisher BOOM STUDIOS, we knew we had to take notice.
This thrilling take on how a modern society could evolve into an evil empire is absolutely terrifying, and we cannot wait to see how it comes together.
Told through the prospective of an underground rapper named Reese, this gripping story explores a scenario in which we watch modern society gradually evolve (or, shall we say devolve?) into an evil empire, where free will is replaced by free internet.
The art on this one is STUNNING, and Bemis is on point, delivering something that may even better than his previous work on POLARITY.
