Amazing Spider-Man #700

by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos

The crazy Doc Ock storyline comes to an insane conclusion in the LAST ISSUE of Amazing Spider-Man ever! The story is super long, with two extra Spidey stories in the back. I cannot say more about this, but whoa! (We will review with spoilers on our next podcast.)

Iron, or The War After HC

by S. M. Vidaurri

When a civil war ends, who are the heroes and who are the traitors? A bleak book of terrible choices and ramifications, with a somber palate and humanoid animals. 

The Black Beetle #0

by Francesco Francavilla

A new pulp adventure in the mode of Hellboy! The Black Beetle takes on Nazi goons after a mystic artifact at the museum! Fun with great art.

JSA: The Whistling Skull #1

by B. Clay Moore and Tony Harris
The retro WW2 JSA returns in a new adventure! From Japan to Switzerland to flashbacks in England, they begin investigating people disappearing from a small village!

Mara #1

by Brian Wood and Ming Doyle

A new miniseries about the best volleyball player in the world, Mara! With all of the conflict of the world focused on intense sporting events, her choice of volleyball has elevated her to celebrity, but a surprise twist ending will shift that very quickly. Volleyball!

Cursed Pirate Girl 1 HC

by Jeremy Bastian

At last back in print, this stunningly detailed gorgeous comic is the tale of the Cursed Pirate Girl and her quest to find her dad, a pirate captain on the Omerta Seas! 

Django Unchained #1

by Quentin Tarantino and R. M. Guera and Jason Latour

Tarantino takes his original script and lets R. M. Guera (Scalped) turn it into a comic book! This might end up different than the film, and is off to a rousing and violent start!

Deathmatch #1

by Paul Jenkins and Carlos Magno
40 of the world's greatest heroes and villains are captured and forced to fight to the death in a strange arena! Plus their memories are selectively wiped, and they don't know who has captured them! Compelling mystery and brutal action.
