What’s Good

Leviathan #1

Leviathan #1 will hit local comic stores August 1, 2018 and you need to grab a copy before they run out!

John Layman and Nick Pitarra have created a raucous roller coaster love story with action, comedy, romance, and destruction! It’s not one to be missed!

Your head will be spinning when you get off this ride, but I can promise you, that won’t stop you from reading this over and over again.

Bone Parish #1

Bone Parish, Boom! Studios

If you enjoy a supernatural touch to your mob stories, you just might enjoy Bone Parish from BOOM! Studios. Cullen Bunn has weaved a one of the creepiest and most memorable debuts of the year.

The Winters family is flooding the streets of New Orleans with a new drug called The Ash. It’s made up of the ashes of the dead and allows the living to experience the lives of those who have passed from this world.

The problem is, the mob doesn’t just want a piece of the action, they want to buy the whole operation. On top of that, there’s something terrifying happening as a result of overuse of The Ash.

If you missed it last week, pick up a copy of Bone Parish #1 before they’re gone!

What’s Exciting

Infinity Wars #1 (of 6)

Infinity Wars #1

From Marvel:

As the Infinity Stones come to Earth, so too comes the war for control over them…. The nature of the universe itself hangs in the balance as we learn the answer to the question on everyone’s lips since “Infinity Wars Prime”: WHO IS REQUIEM?

We’ve been looking forward to this book for awhile now and it’s finally here!

Donny Cates promised major ramifications for the Marvel universe and we’re hoping they deliver in a big way!

Adventures of the Super Sons #1 (of 12)

Adventures of the Super Sons #1

 

The Adventures of the Super Sons returns with issue 1 of a 12 issue miniseries.

From DC

Check out the lost and secret adventures of Damian Wayne (Robin) and Jon Kent (Superboy) in this flashback miniseries that takes a deep dive into the bombastic bromance between the sons of the DC Universe’s greatest heroes.

I don’t know about you, but I definitly looking forward to this book. I’ve always enjoyed the dymanic between Damian Wayne and Jon Kent.

Looking forward to what Peter J. Tomasi has in store for us!

What’s Surprising

Tragic Deaths of Three Former Professional Wrestlers

July 29, 2018 was a tragic day for the professional wrestling world.

Three former wrestlers—Brickhouse Brown, Nikolai Volkoff, and Brian Lawler—passed away.

Rest in Peace gentlemen and thanks for the memories.


Nation, what’s good and has you excited! Tell us!
