We meet again! Welcome back to Monday, folks. This week is another big one, stuffed to bursting with so much goodness we don’t even know what to do with ourselves. There’s more Axis, awesome Batman figures, an Edward Scissorhands comic, the return of Deathstroke’s solo book, and much, much more. Hold onto your butts, here’s the Monday update.
The spotlight this week goes to Deathstroke #1. Slade Wilson is no stranger to having his own solo series, so he’ll feel right at home in his new run from writer Tony Daniel, and artist Tony Daniel! Expect to see some new sides to DC’s deadliest merc, as well as some familiar faces, new foes, and lots of violence. Get your blue and orange outfits on and prepare for some fun.
In other DC news, Deathstroke isn’t the only new #1 headed our way this week. We also have Arkham Manor #1. When Arkham is no longer fit to contain Gotham’s criminally insane, what steps will Batman take to ensure they stay of the streets? Knowing Batman, I’m sure it won’t be anything too over the top. Next, Multiversity is back with Multiversity: The Just #1. Hailing from Earth-Me, this self obsessed team of super-hero kids have become more celebrity than hero. But when a killer runs loose, will these selfie-taking teens suit up to save the day? Finally, Godhead continues in Red Lanterns #35. Following the Atrocitus War, Guy Gardner is having a rough time. So, while a rage fueled Guy is heading to Earth to blow off some steam, New God Malhedron just so happens to be heading to the same place. Someone is going to get punched!
Marvel has another week full of major events, with new stuff from Edge of Spider-Verse, Time Runs Out, and Axis. First, Edge of Spider-Verse continues as Ms. Marvel’s team-up with Spidey comes head to head with the mysterious villains from Spider-Verse. Don’t miss the action in Amazing Spider-Man #8. Next, Time Runs Out continues in Avengers #37. Unfortunately, there’s not much info on what this book is about, since the official solicit simply reads “In 7 months… Time runs out!” Captain Marvel’s on the cover though, so there’s that! Finally, Axis is the big winner this week with 4 tie-in issues. They are Axis #3, Axis: Hobgoblin #1, Deadpool #36, and All-New X-Factor #15. Red Onslaught is about to have his pointy red hands full now that Magneto has assembled his team of super-dangerous fiends!
Meanwhile, there’s an absolutely awesome looking Batman 75th anniversary figure set on the way, a new Deadpool shirt will be here to add to our already impressive Deadpool shirt collection, and some new Doctor Who figures will be showing up as well. Plus, with Wolverine dead, Edward Sissorhands #1 arrives just in time to fill your pointy object hand combo quota, some New 52 Justice LEague Dark figures arrive, the Fire and Stone series continues with Predator: Fire and Stone #1, and the Ghostbusters team up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Because Why not?
