New Comics Release for July 4th 2018

New Comics Release for 7/4/18

Happy Independence Day! Today is new comic book day! It’s a huge day for new books so let’s light the fireworks early in your preview of what’s coming out!

From DC this week, the Bat and the Cat are to be wed! But do they? Batman #50 AND Catwoman #1 both hit the racks tomorrow! Superstar writer Tom King and an all-star lineup of guest classic Bat-artists bring Bruce and Selina to the altar in this cant miss extra page special issue!

Also this week, Joelle Jones takes the helm both writing and drawing Selina Kyle in Catwoman #1. The wedding night’s barely over, but Catwoman’s back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who’s pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she’s attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham’s most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD. And as if the Bat-Bride didn’t have enough problems, don’t miss the debut of an all-new villain determined to make trouble for all nine of Selina’s lives.

From Dynamite this week, Elvira Mistress of the Dark gets a new ongoing series! The Mistress of the Dark has become unstuck in time! Elvira crashes Mary Shelley’s monster weekend, beginning an epic journey through horror history, stalked by the most terrifying nightmare to ever walk the Earth. (No spoilers!) Writer David Avallone (Bettie Page, Doc Savage, Twilight Zone) and Dave Acosta (Doc Savage) bring you the thrills, chills and double-entendres in the first chapter of this four-issue miniseries!

From Image this week, a new 12 issue mini-series called Unnatural begins written and drawn by Mirka Andolfo. Leslie is a simple pig girl. She loves sushi, she’s stuck with a job she hates, and she lives under a brutal totalitarian government-one that punishes transgressors for anything deemed “unnatural.” Leslie dreams of something different for herself. But those dreams are becoming dangerous… This Italian hit series by MIRKA ANDOLFO (Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, DC Comics Bombshells) will transport you into a colorful but terrible world-full of anthropomorphic creatures, but light on personal freedoms-by way of a breathtaking plot that travels between thriller and fantasy, with a hint of sensuality.

From Marvel this week, the prefect precursor to the 4th of July debuts with Captain America #1 written by Ta-Nehisi Coates with art by Leinil Francis-Yu. IT IS WINTER IN AMERICA. For over 70 years, he has stood in stalwart defense of our country and its people. But in the aftermath of Hydra’s takeover of the nation, Captain America is a figure of controversy, carrying a tarnished shield…and a new enemy is rising!
Who are the Power Elite? And how do they intend to co-opt and corrupt the symbol that is Captain America?

Also new this week, hot off his run and right out of the pages of Thanos, Donny Cates takes the chains of Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 of 5!. Frank Castle was the Punisher. A deal with the devil made him Ghost Rider. A deal with Galactus made him cosmic. A deal with Thanos made him…DEAD?!? Not to worry, he’s coming back, and he’s got a plan to make the universe a better place that’s going to lead him into an even CRAZIER adventure than he’s ever been in! Join hot new comic (and cosmic?) writer Donny Cates (THANOS, DOCTOR STRANGE) as he pushes his wildest creation past the breaking point!

Lastly, from Donny and Marvel this week, Death of the Inhumans #1 of 5 begins! The Kree have gone murdering, leaving behind a message: Join or die. Thousands of Inhumans have already made their choice – the evidence floats bleeding in space. Black Bolt and his family are next. Rising star Donny Cates and PUNISHER: WAR JOURNAL artist Ariel Olivetti bring their brutal talents to the Inhumans!

On the Horizon – Reefer Madness

Week to week we receive emails from comic book companies of all stripes. Taking those we present you with the things that we think will be the most interesting to you the listeners.

Full Bleed Volume 2 – Various w., & a. – IDW Publishing

So way back in February IDW released a 200 page, print only anthology, full of comics, art, essays, and short stories called Full Bleed. Funded on Kickstarter and boasting a roster that includes people like Bill Fingerman and Joe Lansdale it looks like a great read that I just haven’t had the chance to pick up yet. Now I’m going to be an issue behind because IDW has Full Bleed Volume 2: Deep Cuts on Kickstarter:
“It’s been so gratifying to see the response to the first volume,” said Creative Director Dirk Wood, “but we’re just getting started here. As much as we loved how the first one turned out, this one takes it up a notch.”
Billed as a “coffee table magazine,” this volume of the quarterly will include interview with Walter Simonson and Los Brothers Hernandez, and be filled to the brim with articles on all sorts of things pop culture as well as having comics and art in them. All the while supporting a charity called Traveling Stories that is dedicated to children’s literacy, “Outsmarting poverty one book at a time.”
You can back the project on Kickstarter (http://kck.st/2H6dLby), and Volume one is still available from IDW.

Elvira Mistress of the Dark #1 – David Avallone w., Dave Acosta a. – Dynamite Entertainment

Dynamite Entertainment is coming out with a four issue mini-series featuring one of the most iconic horror hosts of all time; Elvira Mistress of the Dark. Featuring a story where Elvira gets unstuck from time and is flung into various monster stories, it sounds like the kind of crazy romp that Elvira loves.
“I’m thrilled to partner with Dynamite! I’ve been working hand in hand with them over the past year to put together the best comic series possible. Elvira’s new dark adventures continue, starting in July!” States the Misstress of the Dark Herself – Elvira.
“I really want to capture the essence of what Cassandra Peterson created and bring it faithfully to the comics page,” explains writer David Avallone. “The story is a horror tale (or a quartet of connected horror tales) with a nightmarish villain and danger and action… but at its center is this wise-cracking, plucky, sexy, unflappable heroine. Elvira is incredibly charming and funny and delightful and she maintains that in the face of whatever happens.”
With a lot of great cover artists lined up for the debut issue there will be lots to chose from when this book releases in July. You will be able to find it in Preivews and pre-order it from Hall of Justice Comics and Collectibles in May.
Reefer Madness TPB – Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster w., Jerry Robinson, Jack Kirby, Frank Frazetta a. – Dark Horse Comics

Degradation! Crime! Madness! Hysteria surrounded marijuana as a perceived gateway drug from the 1930s to the 1950s and beyond. Adventure Comics, by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, and works by Frank Frazetta, Jerry Robinson, Jack Kirby, and many more, reveal the social reaction to this era of Reefer Madness.  From comically misinformed to soberly concerned, these comics lament the impact of weed on youth culture.
Eisner and Harvey Award winner Craig Yoe brings us his newest collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics!
