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!

-We’ve seen heist narratives about robbing banks, millionaires, and Fort Knox, but never one about stealing from churches!

-Tithe tells the story of an Anonymous-like hacker who is depleting the accounts of mega churches across the country.  But two determined FBI agents are closing in.  Will the hacker allude them?

-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.

Archie vs. Predator #1 Archie versus Predator

-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.
