D&D Dungeons Dragons Icons of the Realms Starer Set MiniaturesSince most of tonight’s post is mostly populated by Magic the Gathering product, we’ll start out with the two non-Magic related items.

First up, is the second item release for Dungeons & Dragons aka D&D Next aka D&D 5.0 is out this weekend.  The Icons of the Realm miniature set for the D&D Starter Set includes pre-painted miniatures for each of the six character classes, including cleric, fighter, wizard, and more.

The second non-Magic release for the week is the new Stormclaw box set for Stormclaw 40K WarhammerWarhammer 40K.

Acting like a semi-starter kit, Stormclaw features two playable armies, one for Orks, one for Space Wolves.  Outside of a condensed, digest sized version of the 40K core rules, the box set also includes an exclusive Stormclaw campaign booklet and two exclusive figures for each army.  Grukk Face-Rippa, for the Orks, and Krom Dragongaze, for Space Wolves, also come with rules for play.

M15 Core Set 2015 Fat Pack BoostersNow to the Magic stuff.

In case you’ve been asleep for a month or so, the 2015 Core Set for Magic the Gathering is out.  As is the case with all set releases for Magic, the standard booster boxes, Fat Packs, and Intro Decks have been released.  Fat Packs contain nine booster packs of M15, two mini-deck boxes, one larger one, a spindown counter, and more.  Intro Decks are pre-built sixty card decks and two booster packs.M15 Core Set Clash Pack 2015

For the first time, Wizards has also released a Two-Player Clash Pack.  This dual deck set includes two entirely pre-built, playable decks, making it perfect for two friends to pick up and play.  Similar to the previously released Event Decks, the Clash Pack contain a number of high dollar MtG Core Set M15 Sleevesrares, including Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Temple of Mystery, Genesis Hydra, and  Courser of Kruphix.
Finally, if you’re going to be gaining a ton of new M15 singles, you’re going to want sleeves to go with them.  Each of the six major Planeswalkers for the set have each received the sleeve treatment, so no matter what color you play, Wizards has you covered.  As well, new playmats and binders have also been released.

Robin Rises Omega #1Robin Rises Omega #1

-Damian Wayne died over a year ago.  Batman has been searching for a way to bring him back ever since.  He may have found a way.

-Having stolen Damian’s coffin, Batman is on his way to revive his son, when the armies of Apokolips interrupt his mission!

-Written by the acclaimed writer of Batman & Robin, Peter J. Tomasi, Robin Rises will be a major Batman event for the rest of the year!

-This story will continue in upcoming issues of the Batman & Robin ongoing series, finishing off with a Robin Rises Alpha one-shot at the end of the year..

The Squidder #1 (of 4)The Squidder #1

-Cult favorite artist, Ben Templesmith (Ten Grand, 30 Days of Night, Fell), unveils a miniseries he’s always wanted to write!

-A four issue miniseries from IDW, The Squidder is grim, gritty, vast, and epic, much like Prophet or Black Science.

-Set in the far, far future, The Squidder follows a veteran military man who is making a bold, last ditch effort to defeat the alien overlords of the planet.

-Templesmith is a huge Lovecraft fan and, as such, has infused this series with all sorts of Eldar Gods tentacle goodness.

Dark Engine #1Dark Engine #1

-Image Comics has been on an unprecedented roll lately, releasing original comic after original comic.  Dark Engine is the next one.

-John Bivens, an up-and-coming artist, provides interiors and covers for the series in a gorgeous style similar to work from Heavy Metal and Emma Rios’ sketchy style from Pretty Deadly.

-Sounding unlike any other series currently being printed, Dark Engine is about a time traveling killing machine sent back to the far, far past to kill her makers.

-Dragons, androids, jungle warfare, and more are promised for future issues in this ongoing series.

Harley Quinn Invades San Diego Comic-Con #1Harley Quinn Invades San Diego #1

-A one-shot by the creative team behind the ongoing Harley Quinn series!

-At the con to pitch a comic book she’s created, Harley will run into famous DC celebrity’s, like Arrow‘s Stephen Amell, on her mission to become a comic writing star!

-Like the highly popular zero issue of Harley Quinn, this one-shot will be drawn by an assortment of guest artists, including Paul Pope, Amanda Conner, Stephane Roux, and Damion Scott.

-A perfect start to the ACTUAL San Diego Comic-Con occurring later this weekend!
