Cinema PurgatorioCinema Purgatorio #1

-We’ve said it before but it’s no less true now, when Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Batman:  The Killing Joke) launches a new project it’s worth reading.

-An anthology series at it’s heart, Cinema Purgatorio not only features a continual story from Alan Moore, but also from some of the industry’s top creative talent.

-The murderer’s row of writers on the series includes Garth Ennis (Preacher), Max Brooks (World War Z), Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader), and Christos Gage (Crossed:  Badlands).

-Alan Moore will also be re-teaming with Kevon O’Neil on this series, the artist that has worked with him on every League of Extraordinary Gentlemen story.

3 Floyds Alpha King #1 (of 5)3 Floyds Alpha King

-Originally slated to come out through Heavy Metal Magazine, 3 Floyds Alpha King is now an Image Comics property!

-Written by Brian Azzarello (Dark Knight III, Wonder Woman, 100 Bullets), this miniseries is guaranteed to be unusual in all the right ways.

-Azzarello is joined by one of the industry’s most respected veteran artists, Simon Bisley!

-When a couple of suburban bros create a home brew so astounding, an otherworldly king crosses dimensions to posses it.  Things don’t go well.

Renato Jones One PercentRenato Jones:  The One Percent #1

-A modern day Robin Hood tale, but with far more cursing, violence, and debauchery.

-This new Image series will be written, drawn, colored, and completely overseen by Kaare Andrews (Iron Fist the Living Weapon, Spider-Man Reign).

-In a world where the rich have devoured an even greater amount of the public’s gross economy, Renato Jones is the hero who will make them pay.

-Expect crude, raunchy, and gruesome on the level of Kick-Ass!

The Punisher #1Punisher All New All Different

-A new era of The Punisher begins fresh off the heels of his successful appearance in the Daredevil Netflix series.

-New and old combine on creative duties as up-and-coming writer Becky Cloonan (Southern Cross, Gotham Academy), and veteran artist Steve Dillon (Preacher, Punisher) join forces.

-Frank goes on the road with this storyline, heading out on the hunt for a villain that causes him an emotional distress he hasn’t felt since his family died.

-The hunter becomes the hunted, however, as a dangerous gun-for-hire is sent after Frank.

Doctor Strange The Last Days of MagicDoctor Strange:  The Last Days of Magic #1

-Spins out of the events occurring in the main Doctor Strange series!

-Led by Jason Aaron, this anthology one shot features a variety of writers and artists telling tales about the upending of magic in the Marvel Universe.

-In addition to a story about Wong sacrificing for his friend’s survival, there will also be tales about Brother Voodoo and a completely new Marvel character!

-If you’ve been reading the main Doctor Stranger series, this one shot is a must!

Aliens:  Defiance #1Aliens Defiance

-Only a few years away from the continuation of the Aliens universe films, Dark Horse is preparing with a new ongoing series.

-Popular writer, Brian Wood (Black Road, X-Men, Moon Knight), tries his hand at the property.

-Wood will be returning to the claustrophobic horror of the original Alien with the series, but blending in elements of mystery.

-Zula Hendricks, a member of the Ultra Marines, is accompanying a freighter of androids and other materials across the stars when she’s sent on a journey to discover the source of a wayward Xenomorph on her ship.

The Fourth PlanetThe Fourth Planet #1

-Okay, we’re going to be honest.  We ordered this series without any knowledge of the creators or plot, it simply looked like a great read.

-Help us out and the creators out by giving this new, exciting, indy comic a try.

-When a group of refugees crash their stolen warship into a planet entrenched in their own battle, they must take sides or be destroyed.

-From all accounts, fans of classic Sci-Fi, like Warlords of Mars or War of the Worlds, as well as those of current series like Descender, East of West, and Prophet, should give The Fourth Planet a look.

4 Kids Walk Into a Bank #14 Kids Walk Into a Bank

-After making his name on the Black Mask series We Can Never Go Home, Matthew Rosenberg has become a must-read writer in the industry.

-4 Kids Walk Into a Bank is his follow-up series to We Can Never Go Home, promising many of the same pleasures.

-A master of snappy, youthful dialog, Rosenberg has built this series around a close-knit group of tweens getting up to some very bad business.

-While playing in their weekly D&D game, the stars of the series find out that one of their group’s fathers is being asked to pull a bank robbery.  Problem is, those asking are destined to screw it up and get him thrown in jail.  Thus, the group has no other option than to pull the heist themselves.
