Avengers Now #1Avengers Now

-A good old fashioned Marvel Universe Handbook!

-Includes entries on all of the major Avengers characters from the recent relaunch.

-Angela, Sam Wilson’s Captain America, Thor (female), Phil Coulson, and many more are detailed!

-Perfect for younger readers looking to get into Marvel Comics.

Rocket Salvage #1Rocket Salvage #1

-BOOM! Studios continues to dominate the children’s comic market with original content.

-Hot on the heels of Adventure Time, Lumberjanes, Teen Dog, and Bravest Warriors, Rocket Salvage is also bright, colorful, and creative!

-An ex-space racer returns to his glory when he has to enlist his two twin, clone children to assist him in crisscrossing the galaxy to find an ancient artifact!

-Think Guardians of the Galaxy mixed with The Goonies.

Rumble #1Rumble #1

-This book looks bonkers!  To quote the solicits: “It’s Louis C.K. meets Robert E. Howard in a David Fincher universe.”

-A young, nobody gets tangled up in a universal battle between scarecrow gods, mummies, and other mystical forces, all while dealing with his ex-girlfriend and skinhead, loser buddy.

-John Arcudi, the book’s author, is a comic book veteran, having spent years crafting the supporting characters of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy universe.

-Another among the onslaught of varied, interesting Image Comics releases!

Zatanna Bombshells StatueZatanna Bombshells Statue

-If DC has found a cash cow this year, it is the Bombshell designs of their characters!

-Ant Lucia, the artist behind the Bombshell covers from July, has had his already iconic illustrations turned into special series of statues from DC Direct.

-Based off of pin-up artwork, these statues are full body pieces that come complete with a specially designed base.

-And Zatanna is not alone in her Bombshell presentation, as poor John Constantine has been transformed into a fluffy bunny by her powerful magic.

Spider-Man and the X-Men #1Spider-Man and the X-Men #1

-With Wolverine dead, someone has to take over the day-to-day operations at the Jean Grey School.

-A relaunch of the previous Wolverine and the X-Men series, Spider-Man and the X-Men continues with all the same, fan favorite characters.

-Take a chance on a new Marvel writer, as Elliott Kalan takes over authorial duties.

-Peter desperately tries to keep his students alive while the school is attacked by Sauron!

Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1

-Part of DC‘s plan to have a Harley Quinn for every season!

-The writers of the ongoing Harley Quinn series, Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti, deliver another oversized special, like they did with the scratch-n-sniff annual.

-Similar to Harley Quinn #0, this Holiday Special is full of astounding comic artists, each lending their interpretation of the mad maiden!

-As is common with the series, this special issue comes with two different covers, both at the same price!

Bitch Planet #1Bitch Planet #1

-Fan favorite writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly) delivers another Image series!

-Bitch Planet, if you can’t tell, blends together Sci-Fi and prison exploitation genres for a raunchy, violent, and unreal ongoing series!

-When one prisoner gets framed for murder, she has to enter into a deadly prison-on-prison sport to survive!

-Jamie McKelvie (Young Avengers, Phonogram, X-Men Season One) also provides an afro-tastic, seventies influenced variant cover for issue one!

The Valiant #1 (of 4)

-Over the last few years, Valiant has been gaining a reputation as one of the most inventive, original comic The Valiant #1publishers around.  If you haven’t read any Valiant comics, THIS IS THE ONE TO PICK UP!

-Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT, Rai) and Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man, Trillium) combine their writing talents for this prestige format miniseries with the intention of making this the Watchmen of Valiant!

-Starring a line-up of Valiant‘s most popular characters, The Valiant‘s four oversized issues will follow the The Eternal Warrior, an immortal being who protects the Earth, in his battle against an everlasting evil.  Problem is, The Eternal Warrior has lost three times before, each time slipping the world into a dark age.  Will he and his team of Valiant mainstays win this round?

-Exceptional artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, Batman: Black and White) raises the bar with the series, as his smooth line and rich characters make this an epic not to be missed.
