Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (STRANGE ADVENTURES & MONEY SHOT). 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.
DRYAD #1 – $3.99
ONI Press – Kurtis J. Wiebe, Justin Osterling, Fiona Staples
An elf and a human find solace in the sleepy forest settlement of Frostbrook where they plant their roots. But thirteen years later, their twins, Griffon and Rana are inexplicably drawn to an ancient door and discover more than they bargained for, inadvertently turning their world upside down. Now, they’ll have to answer for their parents’ mistakes and find that the past has a way of finding you, no matter where you hide.
MONEY SHOT #5 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Tim Seeley, Sarah Beattie, Kurt Russell, Rebekah Isaacs, Crank!
The Warlord Daughir has won.
The planet Dry Reef is enslaved.
The XXX-plorers are on the run.
Can they get past planetary tragedy and personal disasters to muster the balls it’ll take to save a world?
STRANGE ADVENTURES #1 – $4.99
DC Comics – Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Evan Shaner
Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades. But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
A story like no other, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point-and beyond!
CIMMERIAN QUEEN OF THE BLACK COAST #1 – $3.99
Ablaze Comics – Jean-David Morvan, Pierre Alary, Mirka Andolfo
Discover the true Conan, unrestrained, violent, and sexual. Read the story as he intended! Pursued for killing a judge, Conan finds refuge on a merchant ship. But soon after setting sail, the Cimmerian and his new companions face a threat: the legendary Bêlit, self-proclaimed Queen of the Black Coast! Bonus Material: The original Robert E. Howard short story is included!
KING OF NOWHERE #1 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – W. Maxwell Prince, Tyler Jenkins, Hilary Jenkins, Christian Ward
Lovable drunken lowlife Denis awakens on the outskirts of a mysterious village called Nowhere, home to a friendly populace of deformed, mutated, just-left-of-normal citizens-and he has no memory of how he got there. But just when Denis starts to regain his memories, his past catches up to him… literally. What at first seems like merely a bad trip quickly heightens into a drama of mistaken identities, small-town conspiracy, and high-stakes fantasy fulfillment.
