Curse Words #1This is the Monday Update!

DC’s crossover, Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad, begets the one-shot Justice League of America the Ray #1!  Locked indoors, raised in the dark, and told his medical condition could be fatal to himself and anyone he meets, Ray Terrill is dangerous.  A freak.  Broken.  Or is he…?  Witness the amazing power of self-realization in this moving rebirth of a long-lost hero for a new generation!
Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman must battle for their lives against their greatest foes in an arena of their own making! The mastermind behind this attack has revealed himself at last: Mongul is back in Trinity #5!

Returning for Dark Horse… Angel Season 11 #1! Vampire Angel is tormented by a vision linking his shameful past to something very big – and very bad – that is coming. The goddess Illyria gives Angel some insight and incentive. Then she really gets involved, and Angel discovers that it might be possible to change the future by changing the past.

Critically lauded writer and playwright Sean Lewis follows up the cult favorite Saints with The Few #1 from Image Comics!  The Few combines Mad Max action with a Station Eleven sensibility in this sci-fi series for mature readers.  In a dystopian future, two survivalist brothers stumble across an unlikely sight: a woman asleep in the woods holding nothing but a gun and a baby wearing a gas mask.  As these boys begin to embark on helping this woman, betrayals, secrets, and revolutions abound in the fight for what’s left of America.

The Revolution many be over, but the future is just beginning!  Ripped from the pages of the hottest IDW crossover of the year, the Revolution team of John Barber and Fico Ossio continue the action!  Kup is a Cybertronian literally older than the universe; Action Man is the ultimate special agent trying to live up to an impossible legacy; Mayday is a G.I. JOE leader trying to rescue her first command; and Blackrock is a Cybertronian that thinks he’s a human.   It takes the mind-bending clash of ROM versus Major Bludd and the Oktober Guard to bring this unlikely team together… and the secret they learn threatens to unravel the entire universe. Plus an Exclusive bound-in, Sgt. Savage mini-comic reprinting a lost tale written and drawn by the late, great Joe Kubert!  The secrets of the Hasbro universe will be revealed!  If you follow one new book this month, make it Revolutionaries #1!

The Greatest.  That’s what they call her.  Carol Danvers has been to the depths of outer space and back, but that still hasn’t prepared her for her newfound status of biggest super hero ever in the Marvel Universe!  Danvers may not like the crown she’s wearing, but boy does it look good on her!
Carol Danvers makes her triumphant return in the Mighty Captain Marvel #1!
It’s all hands on deck with the Avengers, Champions, Guardians, X-Men and the Inhumans as they clash with what threaten to destroy every corner of the Marvel Universe.  Who are the Leviathons?  Who controls them?  How can they be stopped before Earth becomes another tragic, barren world in their wake?  Written by powerhouse writer Cullen Bunn and drawn by Marvel legend Steve McNiven, Monsters Unleashed #1 is the beginning of something big that you just can’t miss!
Spider-Gwen #16 continues the story from Spider-Man #12!  Miles and Gwen find themselves in an Earth-65 adventure that’s going to rock both of their worlds (and universes).
Riri faces her first big Marvel villain.   A big Iron Man villain.  It does not go great.  Will Riri find a way to rise to the challenge she has set for herself?   Does she really have what it takes?  All this plus Riri finds out who else is running around as Iron Man!  Riri Williams makes international headlines in Invincible Iron-Man #3!
The darkest Spider-Man story ever gets even darker in Clone Conspiracy #4!  Doctor Octopus and the Lizard have both been on a tight leash, but decide it’s time to stop playing nice…

Now the Spotlight of the Week!

A wizard has appeared in New York City, and he’s casting wonderful spells, getting famous, getting rich-it’s great!  But it’s not.  This wizard has everyone fooled.  He is actually an evil wizard, and evil things are on the way!  Curse Words #1 is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of darkness, light…and magic!  We’ve been waiting for this new ongoing series by Charles Soule and Ryan Browne from Image Comics!
