Rated T+

 


KAMANDI CHALLENGE #1 (OF 12)
DC COMICS
(W) Dan Abnett, Dan DiDio (A) Dale Eaglesham & Various (CA) Bruce Timm
Prepare to take part in one of the greatest adventures from the infinite future of the DC Universe, and join the industry’s top creative teams in a round-robin, no-holds-barred, storytelling extravaganza titled THE KAMANDI CHALLENGE! Born from the mind of Jack “King” Kirby, the post apocalyptic Earth of Kamandi has been a fan favorite for decades, and now 14 intrepid teams of writers and artists build on this incredible foundation and take the title character on an epic quest to find his long-lost parents and travel to places seen and unseen in the DC Universe.
Each issue will end with an unimaginable cliffhanger, and it’s up to the next creative team to resolve it before creating their own. It’s a challenge worthy of “The King” himself! In this premiere issue, the Last Boy on Earth is dragged from his safe haven by a group of tigers, only to face the nightmarish threat of the ultimate weapon!

LADYCASTLE #1
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) Delilah Dawson (A) Ashley A. Woods (CA) Ashley A. Woods, Elsa Charretier
When King Mancastle and his mighty vassals ride off on crusade, the women left behind are not at all put out-that’s a lot less armor polishing for them to do. Of course, when the men get themselves eaten by a dragon and leave a curse that attracts monsters to the castle…well, the women take umbrage with that. Now the blacksmith’s wife Merinor is King, Princess Aeve is the Captain, and the only remaining (and least capable) knight Sir Riddick is tasked with teaching the ladies of the castle how to fight, defend, build, and do all manner of noisy things the men had been doing while the women assumed they were just drunk. Novelist Delilah S. Dawson (Star Wars: The Perfect Weapon, As Wicked as She Wants, Wake of Vultures) brings her first original series to comics, and is joined by breakthrough illustrator Ashley A. Woods (Niobe: She Is Life) for a rollicking fantasy adventure featuring women reclaiming their lives on their terms.

 


ODYSSEY OF THE AMAZONS #1 (OF 6)
DC COMICS
(W) Kevin Grevioux (A/CA) Ryan Benjamin
Don’t miss the start of this new miniseries set in the world of Wonder Woman from writer/actor Kevin Grevioux (New Warriors, Underworld). Years before the birth of Princess Diana, a group of Amazons set out on a globe-spanning quest to find others of their kind, encountering legendary creatures and beings along the way. But their journey soon turns into a rescue mission as two of their own are captured by the legendary Storm Giants of Norse mythology. It’s up to their leader, the stalwart Hessia, to keep them together through the many trials that lie ahead. RATED T

 


SPIDER-MAN DEADPOOL #1.MU
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Joshua Corin (A) Tigh Walker (CA) Dave Johnson
A MONSTERS UNLEASHED TIE-IN!
•  Spider-Man and Deadpool find themselves face-to-face(-to-face?) with one of the dozens of monsters smashing and stomping their way through the Marvel Universe!
•  Ever the stalwart hero, Spider-Man has to use his powers (and responsibilities) to fearlessly fight the freakish monsters, saving many civilians at great cost to himself!
•  Meanwhile, Deadpool is about as helpful as he usually is.
Rated T+
