Injustice Gods Among Us v.1 HC
-The entire first six issue run of the comic prequel series for the hit DC fighting game!
-Tom Taylor, the writer, has made his name off of this series, delivering shocking, unexpected twists that make you crave the next issue.
-Find out what happens when the Joker takes things too far in a universe where anything can happen!
-DC has always excelled at telling alternate universe stories and Injustice is no different. The Elseworlds of the New 52 era!
-Sci-Fi fantasy done the Image Comics way!
-Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten, the creative team of Umbral, have written unique science fiction before in the form of the long-running series, Wasteland.
-After a young thief secretly sees the royal family murdered in cold blood, the murders are on her tail as she makes a mad rush across the galaxy.
-Fans of the recent Image launches (i.e. Saga, Sex Criminals, Velvet, and Prophet) should take notice.
Manifest Destiny #1
-Speaking of Image, here’s another new entry into their growing line of unique stories and settings.
-The untold tale of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, Manifest Destiny retells the duo’s exploration across the open American West, but with a monstrous twist.
-Chris Dingess, the writer, knows his way around werewolves and other demons as he comes off of writing episodes of the Being Human television series, as well as Reaper and Medium.
-Already sold-out at the distributor level, Manifest Destiny #1 should be nabbed before it disappears altogether.
Marvel Knights X-Men #1 (of 5)
-Matt Kindt and Marco Rudy’s Marvel Knights Spider-Man miniseries has set the tone for Marvel‘s relaunch of this grim and gritty imprint, promising weird, stylistic, adult stories with famous Marvel characters.
-A breeding ground for up-and-coming talent, Marvel Knights brings in Brahm Revel, a young writer and penciler ready to bring a more thoughtful tone to the X-Men than offered in the mainline books.
-A minimalist story that takes Wolverine, Rogue, and Kitty Pryde back to the basics of the X-Men, this miniseries sees the trio travel to a smalltown to stop a string of bigoted murders of recently developed mutants.
-Revel’s concise artistic style, reminiscent of Darwyn Cooke and Bruce Timm, will deliver ambiance and character emotion in simple, broad strokes.
