Discovering that their friend is in Alliance custody and that an Alliance Operative is on the way, Mal strikes an uneasy partnership for a daring rescue. Collects issues #1-#6 of the series and the 2016 Free Comic Book Day story “Serenity: The Warrior and the Wind.”
o Georges Jeanty (Buffy Seasons 8-9, Serenity) returns to the ‘verse!
o iZombie creator Chris Roberson writes the continuing adventures of Mal and the crew.
“Serenity: No Power in the ‘Verse is the start of something new, though still familiar territory in terms of obstacles this crew must overcome dealing with each other. There is a lot of potential in this new chapter as long as it feels as though we are moving forward in a ‘verse that is on edge.”-Geeked Out Nation

    Emerald City Comics

    MORDENKAINEN'S TOME OF FOES

    Discover the truth about the great conflicts of the D&D multiverse in this supplement for the world's greatest roleplaying game.

    This tome is built on the writings of the renowned wizard from the world of Greyhawk, gathered over a lifetime of research and scholarship. In his travels to other realms and other planes of existence, he has made many friends, and has risked his life an equal number of times, to amass the knowledge contained herein. In addition to Mordenkainen's musings on the endless wars of the multiverse, the book contains game statistics for dozens of monsters: new demons and devils, several varieties of elves and duergar, and a vast array of other creatures from throughout the planes of existence.

    FAE

    In Fae, first released as Clans, each player is trying to achieve victory by scoring as many points for their color as they can. This is tricky as each player's color is chosen at random and kept hidden until the end of the game. Each region of the board contains five areas, each one of five different types. Each area receives one hut each of five different colors. On their turn, a player moves all huts from one area containing less than seven to an adjacent area, all the while trying to hide which color is theirs. After moving, if one or more areas are completely surrounded by empty areas, they are scored. If all colors are present in a scoring, any colors with only one hut present are removed. The epoch track allows a limited number of areas to score before the game ends, and each scoring will either gain a bonus or score nothing depending on the terrain type in which scoring occurred and how far along the track the game has progressed; each scoring advances the track, and each section of the track gives different terrain types bonuses and penalties.

    Once at least twelve areas have scored the game ends, then players reveal their colors to find out who was best able to score the most points while keeping their color a secret.

    MONOPOLY DEADPOOL

    Deadpool meets the Monopoly game -- like peanut butter and fried trout, it’s a perfect match! In the Monopoly: Deadpool Edition game players build their own team of Mercs for Money as they purchase the contracts of the world’s best mercenaries. Some are Deadpool’s allies, some are Deadpools from alternate universes, and one is just Deadpool in a maid outfit. Other players have to pay a fee when they land on Mercs.
    Get ready to wheel and deal, buy vehicles like a chimichanga truck, and steal friends’ stuff with the Cheap Shot And Low Blow spaces.

    SUPERNATURAL SAVE YOUR SOULS CARD GAME

    Join the Hunt with your favorite characters from the TV series Supernatural. Each round you will team up with an iconic hunter, angel or the King of Hell himself. But beware! If you don’t choose wisely, you may lose your soul…

    CATWOMAN #1
    DC COMICS
    (W/A/CA) Joëlle Jones
    The wedding night's barely over, but Catwoman's back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who's pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she's attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham's most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD. And as if the Bat-Bride didn't have enough problems, don't miss the debut of an all-new villain determined to make trouble for all nine of Selina's lives. Don't miss the start of an all-new monthly series written and illustrated by Eisner Award-nominee Joëlle Jones!

    SUPERMAN #1
    DC COMICS
    (W) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis
    A bold new chapter for the greatest superhero of all time begins here as the superstar team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Ivan Reis begin their run on the all-new SUPERMAN! The fallout from the Man of Steel miniseries has Clark Kent looking at the world through new eyes... with new ideas about what Superman could and should do for the city of Metropolis and the planet Earth. His first job? Getting the planet back out of the Phantom Zone!

    CAPTAIN AMERICA #1
    MARVEL COMICS
    (W) Ta-Nehisi Coates (A) Leinil Francis Yu (CA) Alex Ross
    IT IS WINTER IN AMERICA.
    For over 70 years, he has stood in stalwart defense of our country and its people. But in the aftermath of Hydra's takeover of the nation, Captain America is a figure of controversy, carrying a tarnished shield...and a new enemy is rising!
    Who are the Power Elite? And how do they intend to co-opt and corrupt the symbol that is Captain America?





    JIM HENSON BENEATH DARK CRYSTAL #1
    BOOM! STUDIOS
    (W) Adam Smith (A) Alexandria Huntington (CA) Benjamin Dewey
    Writer Adam Smith ( Jim Henson's Labyrinth 2017 Special) and artist Alexandria Huntington (Avengers Origins) present a new sequel to the hit film! The realm of Mithra is being rebuilt by the newly-crowned Ember Queen Thurma. But while she seeks to save all people, a long-forgotten tribe of Firelings disputes the legitimacy of her reign... and they have proof that another Fireling is the true heir to the throne.

    RELAY #1
    AFTERSHOCK COMICS
    (W) Zac Thompson & Various (A) Andy Clarke (CA) Andy Clarke, Dan Brown
    A perfect future of intergalactic travel and community. Every newly discovered planet is unified culturally through a monolithic structure known as the Galactic Relay. Although the towering monument is meant to inspire conformity of ideas, technology, and progress - many resent the foreign structure. Jad Carter, a Relay employee, must keep the peace and act as an emissary to new civilizations. But when he finds the Relay's mythological creator, Hank Donaldson, his idea of reality and the universe shatters.

    Equal parts The Fifth Element and Philip K Dick, and directly springboarding off the previously released Free Comic Book Day RELAY #0, this series is an exploration of monoculture, identity, and the deceptive nature of legend set in a thriving future where humanity forcibly assimilates new worlds.

    Written by Zac Thomspon (Cable, The Dregs, HER INFERNAL DESCENT), with art by Andy Clarke (REPLICA, Batman), and a story conceived by Zac Thompson, Eric Bromberg (PESTILENCE) and Donny Cates (BABYTEETH, Dr. Strange, Thanos, Venom, God Country), this powerhouse of a series that HAD to be told at AfterShock!





    ADVENTURE ZONE GN VOL 01 HERE THERE BE GERBLINS
    :01 FIRST SECOND
    (W) Clint McElroy (A/CA) Carey Pietsch
    Based on the McElroy family's smash hit podcast, a graphic novel following the metafictional adventures of three D&D characters and their interfering Dungeon Master, with art from rising star Carey Pietsch. Harken to my tale. Once upon a time (a couple of years ago) there were these brothers who had a bunch of really successful podcasts, and they decided to do a new podcast with their dad, where they all played D&D together as a family, and lo, this new podcast was called The Adventure Zone, and verily did it get downloaded over 10 million times, and wow did it totally eat the brains of all who listened, because: It was just. That. Rad. And then did these guys team up with artist Carey Pietsch, and make a graphic novel where the weirdly sweet and brilliant but also super vulgar and honestly kind of bizarre story of The Adventure Zone got adapted into a goofy, innovative, and compelling graphic novel!

    DEADPOOL INVADES EUROPE!!!

    20th Century Fox and Ryan Reynolds have released a new Deadpool Movie promo, where Deadpool himself warns Europe about the movie's release and its Canadian culture invasion!!!

    As expected, it's pretty hilarious, and a little Not Safe For Work, but it also includes a riotous behind-the-scenes look at his music video with fellow Canadian Céline Dion, and a crazy ad for Trolli Sour Brite Tiny Hands candy, available exclusively at 7-Eleven, which, yes, is apparently a real thing!!!

    Anyhoo, if you're on the hunt for more Deadpool craziness, stop by and see your friends at EC for all the Deadpool books, comics, games, toys, collectibles, tchotchkes and more, that your tiny - or any other sized hands - can carry!!!
