Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (BLACKWOOD, DEEP ROOTS & THE NEW WORLD). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
BLACKWOOD #3 – $3.99
Dark Horse Comics – Evan Dorkin, Veronica Fish, Andy Fish
The Blackwood curse claims its first victim in a most horrific manner, the three surviving students attempt to lift the curse on their own by hunting down Dean Ogden, Chimp Ho Tep is on the loose and causing havoc for reasons unknown, and the Bug Mother sends her “millions of babies” on a murderous revenge mission against the school.
DEEP ROOTS #3 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Dan Watters, Val Rodrigues, Triona Farrell, Aditya Bidikar, Dani Strips
As the green tendrils of the Otherworld burrow into them, our rescue team stumbles onto a secret that may reveal the machinations of this alienplace – but being stalked through a forest where even the grass is hungry for flesh, what chance do they have of surviving long enough to untangle this thread?
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1 – $3.99
DC Comics – James Tynion IV, Alvaro Martinez, Raul Fernandez, Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion
From the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! Earth’s magic once belonged to them. Now they want the magic back. But who exactly are they? It’s up to the new Justice League Dark to find out and stop this nightmarish new threat at all costs! After the events of NO JUSTICE, team leader Wonder Woman guides the misfit magic mix of Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Man-Bat and Detective Chimp against enemies too fantastic even for the Justice League. Plus, what awful things are coming through the Tree of Wonder? Dark days ahead…
