Incoming // New Releases for May 3rd, 2017

Each and every Monday, we provide our awesome customers with a list of all the comics and graphic novels that are hitting the shelves for the coming Wednesday, with bits of commentary on some of the titles.

As always, if you see anything you like, let us know and we’ll set a copy aside for you!

NEW SINGLE ISSUES

AB IRATO #1 (OF 6) // These days we’re always game for a good far fetched dystopia story, as they kind of take our mind off of… well, the current dystopia. From the publisher: “In a dystopian future of rising sea levels, the rich have access to a rejuvenating vaccine that can allow lifespans of hundreds of years. A young man named Riel arrives in the urban metropolis of Montreal and meets a young woman, Neve, who is allied with rebel insurgents (the “Bastards of God”) fighting the corporate powers that control the city and the vaccine.”
ADAM WRECK #1 (OF 3) // If you’re looking for some interesting books to try out this week on the cheap, Alterna Comics is kicking off their line of newsprint comics for a scant $1.50 American each. We thought it was a great initiative to get people into comics on the cheap, so we’ve brought a few in! From the publisher: “An interstellar family road trip comes to a screeching halt when Adam’s parents are kidnapped by Space Pirates! Crash-landing on a planet filled with monstrous creatures, Adam befriends a scoundrel with a heart of gold. Can they save Adam’s parents?”
ADVENTURE TIME #64
ALL NEW GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #1 // Just in time for the movie, the Guardians of the Galaxy begin a new season of stories in comics! We haven’t had a chance to test out this new book, but future issues look like they’re pulling on threads left from Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s run on the book – which was the series that inspired the movies!
AMAZING AGE #1 (OF 5) // Another great $1.50 launch this week. From the publisher: “Three teenagers spend their days creating comics until one day, the stories come to life! Stuck in a world of super-powered heroes and villains, they’ll have to figure out how to save the day and get back home in one piece!”
AMORY WARS GOOD APOLLO #2 (OF 12) (MR)
AQUAMAN #22
BACK TO THE FUTURE BIFF TO THE FUTURE #4 (OF 6)
BANE CONQUEST #1 (OF 12)
BATMAN #22 (THE BUTTON)
BLACK BOLT #1 // The new season of Inhumans comics continues here with Black Bolt! From the publisher: “Black Bolt imprisoned! But by who? And where exactly? The answers to both will shock you! But to learn those answers, Black Bolt must first win a fight to the death with a fellow inmate – The Absorbing Man! Award-winning science fiction writer Saladin Ahmed (Throne of the Crescent Moon) crafts a story as trippy as it is action-packed, with truly mind-bending art from the one and only Christian Ward!”
BOX OFFICE POISON COLOR COMICS #5
BRAVE CHEF BRIANNA #3 // We’ve been talking about this series a lot on social media as the book with the best depiction of anxiety that we’ve ever seen. To that end, we’ve placed a heavy restock of the single issues for this book that are also in this week, for everyone to dig through and experience. Message us if you want in on this brilliant series.
CATALYST PRIME NOBLE #1 // The Catalyst universe begins here. Designed to more accurately reflect our world, Catalyst features creators and characters outside of the white male norm, and hope to bring a different perspective to the superhero genre.
CHAMPIONS #8
CROAK #1 (OF 3) // A $1.50 release. From the publisher: “In this pulse-pounding debut issue, a fun camping trip turns awry after three friends are forced deep into the woods. Lost, afraid, and alone, their worst nightmares come to life.”
DAMNED #1 (MR) // Alongside Alterna’s cheap releases this week, comes the start of a series for just $1 US as Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt revisit a world of prohibition noir and demons.
DEATHSTROKE #18
DREGS #3 (MR)
EMPOWERED SOLDIER OF LOVE #3
ETERNAL EMPIRE #1 // A high fantasy from the creative team that brought the world Alex + Ada, one of our favourite books to come out during our time running the shop. From the publisher: “The Eternal Empress has waged war against the countries of Saia for over one hundred years and now her sights are set on the last country standing. Within the brutal Empire’s workforce, a young woman receives strange visions that give her the courage to escape her fate…or run straight toward it.”

LILITH DARK #1 (OF 4) // Yet another $1.50 US first issue! From the publisher: “Lilith Dark has no time for princess stuff; she’s far too busy fighting giant monsters and capturing unicorns… or at least that’s how she imagines things. But what if these imaginary beasties, creatures, and monsters were actually real? What then?”
MANIFEST DESTINY #28 (MR)
MY LITTLE PONY FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC #53
NIGHTWING #20
NOVA #6
PAPER GIRLS #14
PENNY DREADFUL #2
PESTILENCE #1 // From the publisher: “It’s the late 14th Century, and a Great Pestilence-the “Black Death”- is sweeping across Europe, killing over 100 million people. BUT, what if history as we know it was a lie? What if, in reality, this was no straightforward plague, but the FIRST non-recorded Zombie Infestation of man? Ex-Crusader Roderick Helms and his fellow “black ops” agents the Church, Fiat Lux, must seek out the cause of this undead outbreak and vanquish it before mankind ceases to exist!”

SWORDQUEST #0 // And in “even cheaper” comic news, this series begins with a 25 cent US zero issue. From the publisher: “Peter Case was a boy on a quest. The quest to win the prizes from Atari’s SwordQuest challenge! He was counting down the days to the release of the final game, AirWorld, only to be shattered when the news surfaced that it would never be released. Now Peter is an adult…and things aren’t going well. The bad news is he has to move back in with his mother. The good news is she still has all of his old Atari stuff. With nothing else to look forward to, his obsession with SwordQuest is reignited, in a more…ummm, interesting way…”
