Graveyard Book Neil Gaiman volume 1 HCNeil Gaiman’s Graveyard Book GN v.1 HC

-Another of Neil Gaiman’s classic novels gets adapted to comic book form!

-Part one of a two part graphic novel adaptation, these two books will comprise the entire story of the novel.

-Adapted directly from Neil Gaiman’s prose, these volumes will not be muddled and or hampered by some middleman author.

-P. Craig Russell, who illustrated Gaiman’s Sandman Endless Nights, provides some art for the volume, but is joined by a handful of other artists, each drawing a different chapter.

Superior Spider-Man #32Superior Spider-Man #32

-Yup, you thought he was gone, but everyone’s friendly neighborhood mad doctor is back!

-Though this issue is #32, Dan Slott is beginning an entirely new story that sees Doc Ock Spidey launched into the 2099 timeline.

-But how has Superior Spider-Man been sent to the future?  What is his purpose there?

-This oversized issue begins the road to Spider-Verse, leading up to the biggest event in recent Spider-Man history.

Thanos Infinity Revelation HCThanos Infinity Revelation OGN 

-Jim Starlin, writer of the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, returns to the character that made his career!

-A complete story in a single volume, Thanos Infinity Revelation continues Marvel‘s line of original graphic novel releases.

-Starlin also provides artwork for the volume, linking it up with his classic space odyssey stories.

-If you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy and crave more Thanos, then this is the story to pick up!

Trillium TPBTrillium tpb

-Jeff Lemire, writer of The Underwater Welder, Sweet Tooth, Animal Man, Justice League United, and many of the most inventive comics of the last five years, writes and illustrates this epic Sci-Fi yarn!

-Set simultaneously one hundred years in the past and thousands of years in the future, Trillium sees an ex-WWI soldier and a future, disease control scientist cross paths and fall in love via time travel.

-The entire eight issue miniseries is collected in this single volume!

-Lemire, a master of the comic medium, plays with the format in this miniseries, approximating the confusion of time travel through unusual panel and page layouts, duel stories, and pages that need to be rotated.

It Binds All Things Star Wars LCGTonight’s New Game Stuff is gonna begin with a little list action, because Fantasy Flight drop new Netrunner Upstalk Data Packexpansion packs for nearly every Living Card Game line they publish.

So, *deep breath*, there is the It Binds All Things Force Pack for the Star Wars LCG, there is The Three Trials Lord of the Rings LCGthe Upstalk Data Pack for Netrunner, there is The Prize of the North Chapter Pack for the A Game of Thrones LCG, and The Three Trials for the Lord of the Rings LCG, all of A Game of Thrones LCG The Prize of the Northwhich contain sixty new cards.

The popular and creatively named train game, Trains, gains its first pack map this weekend.  Map Pack 1 (wow, who is naming these things?) contains a double-sided board, with one side featuring Germany and the other the Northeastern section of the United States.  These now allow players to expand their railways into Trains Map Pack 1other countries.

Rio Grande Games also expands the clauses and addendums to the Last Will board game with the Getting Sacked expansion.  Adding more obstacles to the already difficult process of attaining your late Uncle’s fortune, Getting Sacked requires players Last Will Getting Sackedto find a way to lose their job as well as find a good, honest, money spending wife.  Each expansion option is included in this one set, but you will need the base game to begin.

They may not run as smoothly as race cars, they may not take turns as well, and they may poop on the track, but elephants will get you where you need to go.  Formula E is a variation on the Formula Epopular Formula D racing game, but featuring pachyderms instead of cars.  Players will lay down movement, obstacle, and other types of cards in order to move their ride around the track, blocking out other players in order to get ahead.

With a rules update comes a new version of the Warhammer 40K starter set. Dark Vengeance Warhammer 40K starter This weekend the Dark Vengeance starter box is out again, but with some updates.  Still included are the templates, dice, and full armies for Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines, along with a condensed rulebook, but now with updates for the new rule set.  The unique figure for this set, however, is Vrosh Tattersoul, and entirely new miniature for the Chaos Space Marines faction.

Bodies #1Bodies #1 (of 8)

-Like a British version of True Detective.

-Si Spencer, the British writer of various Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, and Doctor Who comics, weaves a decade spanning crime mystery.

-Bodies is set in four different time periods, ranging from the 1890s to 2050, each with their own detective attempting to solve a homicide.

-Each time period is also drawn by a different artist, giving a distinct tone to each story.

Hugh Howey’s Wool #1 (of 6)Hugh Howey's Woold #1

-A graphic novel adaptation of the New York Times bestselling novel!

-What began as a single short story has grown into a series of novellas and now a comic book adaptation.

-The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the remnants of society live in a 100-story deep silo.  Or is it that simple?  Wool is a story of nearly constant twists and turns, leaving the reader desperate for answers.

-Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex, All-Star Western, Harley Quinn) and Jimmy Broxton (Knight and Squire) are handling the adaptation, with Darwyn Cooke on covers.

Chew Warrior Chicken Poyo #1Chew Warrior Chicken Poyo #1

-Everyone’s favorite secret agent chicken is back!

-The Chew guys don’t skimp on one-shots, as both John Layman and Rob Guillory are not passing writing and art duties off to fill-in creators.

-The last Poyo one shot vanished off the shelves nearly as quick as it arrived, making it a sought after collectible

-Adding to the collector’s value of this issue, Poyo crosses paths with Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead cast, so you know that’s going to have some after-market value.

Low #1Low #1

-Another new series from Rick Remender, who after Black Science, Captain America, Uncanny Avengers, and Marvel‘s upcoming Axis miniseries, is on a creative roll!

-Basically, a Bioshock comic book series.

-Low takes place on an Earth that has been so irradiated by the explosion of our sun that humanity has moved under the ocean for protection.

-Greg Tocchini’s gorgeous painterly artwork adds another beautiful comic series to the already populated list of capably illustrated Image Comics series.
