Alien #1 (Marvel Comics)

When Disney bought the Fox properties a lot of publishing rights got shuffled around. One of those is that the Alien franchise is now under the Disney umbrella. Which means Marvel can publish comics featuring the Xenomorphs either in their own self contained stories or (maybe, hopefully, eventually) crossing over with some of our favorite Marvel characters.

Carnage: Black, White, and Blood #1 (Marvel Comics)

The spin off of Venom that became a successful popular character on his own! This series lets Carnage do what he does best and will only be printed in black and white with lots of red for every time Carnage goes too far.

X-Men Legends #2 (Marvel Comics)

A revelation 30 years in the making. If you were reading comics in the 90’s one of the biggest mysteries was “who is the third Summers brother”? Thanks to changes in writers and editorial focus it has been long rumored that the original plan never happened. This issue finally reveals the true family history of a previous Summers brother contender, Adam X!

Deadpool Nerdy 30 #1 (Marvel Comics)

It’s Deadpool’s thirtieth birthday! Wow, it seems like just yesterday that New Mutants #98 came out. Some of Deadpool’s most iconic writers and artists come back for short tales as part of this birthday celebration issue.

James Bond: Agent of SPECTRE #1 (Dynamite Comics)

Someone is attempting to take over SPECTRE and Blofeld knows only one man can stop this coup. He recruits the one and only James Bond (though threats of course) to save SPECTRE and now Bond will attempt to both save and destroy SPECTRE from the inside.

Firefly: Brand New ‘Verse #1 (Boom! Studios)

Set 20 years after the series ended. Your favorite characters from the one season cult phenomenon are here, or their kids are. An all new cast rides in Serenity towards new adventures in this continuing chapter for the Firefly franchise.

Marvel Comics: The Variant Covers (Insight Editions)

Those of us who were obsessed with comics during the Wizards era are all too familiar with variant covers. This $45 hardcover coffee table book interviews artists and others in the comic industry to showcase some of the most historic, memorable and iconic variant covers in Marvel’s history.

Infinite Frontier #0 (DC Comics)

This is the start of DC Comics new direction. Yes, again. Buyer beware but I see a lot of potential hit series that will be launching out of this Infinite Frontier idea. Highly recommend picking up this issue and then deciding what new titles look like promising additions to your own pull list.
