=IT'S NEW COMIC BOOK DAYWhat the hell are you getting this week, Finalchan?http://comiclist.com
A much better week for me than the last one.
Red Sonja #9. This has been a fun romp, with Red Sonja defeating her arch-nemesis, so he freaks out and rips a portal that cuts through time and space. Red Sonja gets sucked into the portal also, and they each get dropped off in different time periods. Sonja gets discovered by a police officer in the year 2017, and she learns that her enemy has amassed a great wealth using his magic to shape a large corporation with massive influence. So basically, Red Sonja in modern times, trying to figure all our "magic" technology out. Sword, boobs, and fighting.
>The cross-country adventure continues as the She-Devil makes her way across the wild, wild West. Sonja discovers just how big America really is as she tries to stay one step ahead of the law, with a little help from her friends Spike and Holly.
X-Files Origins II #4. Mulder and Scully as kids. They don't know each other in thise series, so half the book is about Mulder and his friends investigating crash landings, weird glowing ooze, and linking strange events to the organization his friend works for. Flip the comic over and you get a story about Scully trying to figure out how the guy that was arrested for murdering her Sunday School teacher was just on TV as the pilot of an aircraft that crash landed in California…
> Before the FBI, before the X-Files, they were just two teenagers in search of the truth. On Martha's Vineyard, a strange encounter with a deaf girl sends 13-year-old Fox Mulder on the hunt for a mysterious signal. While in San Diego, young Dana Scully looks into a plane crash somehow tied to the man she helped put in jail. Two kids, two mysteries, one conspiracy that threatens the future of humanity.
Image Plus #2. This is more of a magazine than a comic book. It has interviews, previews, and other content regarding Image Comics. This issue has the second preview for the upcoming Wytches Volume 2. I really enjoyed Wytches, so this is exciting for me.
>Volume two of the Diamond Gem Award-winning comics magazine IMAGE+ continues with all the hard-hitting content you love. This issue features another 80 pages of interviews, previews, and in-depth features, plus exclusive comics content. SCOTT SNYDER & JOCK's horror series WYTCHES continues with chapter two of the 'BAD EGG' arc, plus the second of ED PISKOR's 'IMAGE OF YOUTH' strips, and beginning this issue: an all-new ATOMAHAWK serial by DONNY CATES, IAN BEDERMAN & TAYLOR ESPOSITO. IMAGE+ remains your number one source for news and information about Image Comics, and now's the perfect time to get in on the ground floor. IMAGE+ is once again available for the low, low price of FREE for anyone already purchasing a copy of Diamond's Previews.
Redneck #6. Written by Donny Cates, the greatest comic book writer of the last two years. Redneck is a story set in Texas. The story focuses around cattle ranchers that sell their live stock to the local barbecue place. The cattle ranching is really a business that helps hide the fact that the ranchers are vampires. To keep the peace between themselves and humans, they've taken to hiding out in the country, acting human, and living off the cattle blood. One day shit hits the fan, and their cover is blown, turning into a war between families.
>END OF STORY ARC! 'DEEP IN THE HEART' reaches its blood-drenched finale! All the death and destruction the Bowmans have caused finally leads the authorities to their little farm. Surrounded by cops with no way out, is this the end for the Bowman clan? Surely, Granpa will have something to say on the matter…
X-O Manowar #7. This has been a really good relaunch of a classic character. The story has been written so that you don't need to know any of the characters backstory, and you get little glimpses into how mighty the protagonist was at one time, as well as conversations that reveal why he refuses to wear the armor that helped him succeed. Very happy with this series so far.
>ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! 'EMPEROR' - PART ONE! The ultimate turning point! A war has been won, a victory has been decided…and, now, an entire alien world kneels before the throne of their new leader: the unstoppable X-O MANOWAR! He has traded his armor for a crown and a new age now begins… even as an extraterrestrial invader readies an interplanetary attack that could pull Aric of Dacia from the newfound safety of his imperial palace and back into the blood-sodden battlefi elds where his conquest began. Comics superstar Clayton Crain (4001 A.D., RAI) joins New YorkTimes best-selling writer Matt Kindt (RAPTURE, Mind MGMT) to summit the next pinnacle of 2017's best-selling independent superhero series - and unleash a blistering, new interstellar opus chronicling the most powerful moment yet in the history of Valiant's unrelenting icon!
