Based on our first few picks, this is shaping up to be an AMAZING week with some GIANT releases worth your hard-earned MONEY. KAIJUMAX. So let’s take a further look at what looks good for this Wednesday.
The Amazing Mary Jane #1
SPINNING RIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF AMAZING SPIDER-MAN!
“YOU JUST HIT THE JACKPOT!” ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES!
The web-head’s favorite redhead (and yours!) is taking a chance on her dreams. But if you’ve read ASM #25, you’ll know MYSTERIO is behind Mary Jane’s big shot, and someone worse is behind him! What’s real and what’s illusion, what’s illusion and what’s Hollywood phoniness?
This fall, Leah Williams (AGE OF X-MEN: EXTREMISTS; GIANT MAN) and Carlos Gomez (UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL, Red Sonja) bring you all this intrigue plus more action, glamor, grit, and – we’ll say it – sass than anyone’s previously dared fit in five issues! Face it: you don’t wanna miss this!
Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle #1
A summons from SHIELD leads Peter Parker into a globe-spanning adventure that will test him as never before, one in which the future of all mankind lies in his gloved, webbed hands! Who is the mysterious prisoner in the steel box who keeps propelling the wall-crawler onward?
Nick Spencer and an all-star team of Marvel’s biggest writers and artists take up the challenge to create the wildest, maddest, most unconventional AMAZING SPIDER-MAN story of all! Guest-starring Nick Fury, Wolverine and Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham!
Second Coming #4
Jesus Christ is missing! Sunstar recruits a team of lesser costumed heroes (who resent his great power) to assist him in the search for the Son of God! Plus the usual AHOY prose fiction, beautifully illustrated.
Money Shot #1
In the near future, space travel is ludicrously expensive and largely ignored. Enter Christine Ocampos, inventor of the Star Shot teleportation device with a big idea: She’ll travel to new worlds, engage —intimately—with local aliens, and film her exploits for a jaded earth populace trying to find something new on the internet. Now, Chris and her merry band of scientist-cum-pornstars explore the universe, each other, and the complexities of sex in MONEY SHOT! A story about scientists having sex with aliens for the glory of mankind—and money.
Count Crowley: Reluctant Monster Hunter #1
Dark Horse Comics
Aspiring reporter Jerri Bartman is furious when she’s demoted to hosting the nightly Creature Feature at her small-town TV station. But Jerri quickly learns that there is more to horror hosting than just introducing bad B-movies. Her first night in the costume of her missing predecessor, Count Crowley, finds her face to face with a living, breathing . . . werewolf. Or was she just that drunk?
