Uncle ScroogeUncle Scrooge #1

-It’s rare that a publisher launches a children’s comic in this day and age, so kudos to IDW for releasing a new one!

-Yes, Marvel may be owned by Disney, but IDW has acquired the rights to print new material of classic Disney characters.

-Uncle Scrooge launches a series of Disney comics, including Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

-Each issue of the Uncle Scrooge series will see Scrooge McDuck and his nephews adventuring in single issue stories, some time with other Disney characters!

Beyond Belief #1Beyond Belief #1

-Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist Network rules ALL the airwaves, but now it will also rule the comic book page!

-Adapted from the Beyond Belief segment of The Thrilling Adventure Hour Podcast!

-The issues are written by Ben Blacker and Ben Acker, two regular contributors to the Nerdist Network!

-Each issue will feature a different horror story!

Empire UprisingEmpire Uprising #1

-Respected, veteran comic book author, Mark Waid (Shield, Kingdom Come, Daredevil), launches another new series this Wednesday!

-Following up on the Empire miniseries Waid wrote years ago, Empire Uprising continues a year after those events.

-A lot of super villains claim they’re going to conquer the world.  Golgoth, the protagonist of Empire Uprising, actually did it.

-Can a superhero resistance force manage to topple the mad ruler?  Read to find out.

Kaptara #1Kaptara

-Chip Zdarsky (or as his friends know him, Chololick Chip Zdouchsky), co-creator of Sex Criminals and author of the new Howard the Duck series, launches an absurd Sci-Fi series at Image!

-Image Comics has been killing it with a plethora of space adventure series lately, including Invisible Republic, Copperhead, Descender, Roche Limit, and Southern Cross.  Kaptara is the next hit!

-A crew of space people land on the surreal planet of Kaptara and, you know, stuff goes on.  Or, at least, that’s what Chip says.

-Like if God Hates Astronauts, Manhattan Projects, Sex Criminals, and Prophet had a four-way baby!

-After launching the cult favorite series Postal, Matt Hawkins follows it up with this new Image comic.

-While not a miniseries, Tithe with tell its first storyline in only four issues, making it a concise first arc and a fast read.

-After the success of the darkly toned Afterlife with Archie, the traditionally family friendly publisher has crossed into adult territory.

-The greatest game for the Predator may just be residing in Riverdale.

-After a relaxing day at the beach, the Archie gang ends up encountering the Predator, who will hunt them over the course of the series.

-Every issue will be drawn in the classic Archie style, comparing the bright and bubbly tone with the bloody horror of the Predator films.

Savior #1Savior #1

-Todd McFarlane, co-founder of Image Comics and creator of Spawn, returns to launch an entirely new series!

-McFarlane’s partner in launching this ongoing series is painterly artist extraordinaire, Clayton Crain (Carnage USA, X-Force, Rai)!

-Savior asks the question, “How would the real world react to a superpowered person showing up?”  No costume.  No code name.  Most view him as the second coming of Christ.  But is he a savior or a destroyer?

-Is Savior the next hit Image comic?  The next Walking Dead?  You only have to pay $2.99 to find out!

Kaijumax #1Kaijumax

-Think of a prison.  Now think of that prison, but with the human prisoners replaced with giant, Godzilla-like creatures.

-Zander Cannon, a frequent inker and illustrator on Alan Moore’s Top 10, will be writing and drawing this Oni Press series!

-You know the standard prison yard beat down?  Well, in Kaijumax that plays more like the city destroying fights between Mothra, Godzilla, and Rodan!

-Also, expect to see some legally distinct, but familiar monster faces mixed in with Cannon’s own designs!

Max Ridge First FlightMax Ride: First Flight #1 (of 5)

-Following in the footsteps of Marvel‘s successful and respected adaptations of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower and The Stand, the publisher turns its talents toward James Patterson’s young readers series of novels!

-Marguerite Bennett (Earth 2 World’s End, Lois Lane, Batman, A-Force) will be adapting Patterson’s work!

-Max and her peers have been experimented on by an evil corporation, who have spliced their DNA with that of birds.  These teens break free, however, and take wing to escape the corporation’s Erasers!

-After the popularity of the action figure Star Wars variant covers, Marvel is also releasing an action figure variant for issue #1 of Max Ride.  Unlike Star Wars, though, these will be sold at cover price!

DC Convergence Week 1Convergence Nightwing Oracle

-DC‘s reality spanning event begins in earnest this Wednesday!
