Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (RICK AND MORTY VS DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, BLACKWOOD & SUBMERGED). 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 #4 – $3.99
Dark Horse Comics – Evan Dorkin, Veronica Fish, Andy Fish
From the multi-Eisner award-winning creator of Beasts Of Burden and the artist of Archie and SLAM comes this supernatural fantasy about a magical murder in a sorcery school.
The occult students race to uncover the secrets of Dean Ogden’s hidden past in order to save Blackwood from the Bug Mother’s ultimate vengeance–an insect plague of biblical proportions, including a hungry horde of over-sized bloodsuckers and flesh-eaters.
EUTHANAUTS #2- $3.99
Black Crown – Tini Howard, Nick Robles, Aditya Bidikar, Caitlin Yarsky
The dead speak. Grant them Mercy. We learn who is alive and who is dead (for now). And who is the boy who burns things so brightly? A look at the very first Euthanaut. Funeral home receptionist Thalia Rosewood’s life has just changed forever in this provocative new series.
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS SHATTERED GRID #1 – $7.99
BOOM! Studios – Kyle Higgins, Daniele Di Nicuolo, Diego Galindo, Simona Di Gianfelice, Walter Baiamonte, Marcelo Costa, Ed Dukeshire, Trevor Hairsine, Alex Guimaraes
The blockbuster finale to the Shattered Grid event, drawing Power Rangers from across time and space for a final showdown against one of their own.
RICK AND MORTY VS DUNGEONS & DRAGONS #1 – $3.99
IDW Publishing/ONI Press – Pattrick Rothfuss, Jim Zub, Troy Little, Leonardo Ito, Robbie Robbins
When Morty needs to learn how to play D&D to keep up with the cool kids, his hard-drinking, old school-gaming, mad science-making grandpa is happy to teach him how to roll the dice, but neither of them is prepared for the saving throws they’re about to fail or the true quest yet to come. Strap on a +1 longsword and grab your 10-foot pole, because this is going to be a gaming gauntlet like no other!
The world’s greatest role-playing game.
Reality’s most dysfunctional family.
What could go wrong?
SUBMERGED #2 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Vita Ayala, Lisa Sterle, Stelladia, Rachel Deering, Jen Bartel
As the worst storm in New York City’s history crashes over its streets, Ellie Puente’s desperate search for her brother, Angel, takes her into the terrifying depths of the subway system. There she finds a lost, helpless child, and is confronted with the stuff of her nightmares.
