First Comics News - Fri, 04/13/2018 - 21:44

New York, NY—April 13, 2018—Gwen Stacy’s adventures on the alternate universe of Earth-65 have included battling against Matt Murdock as Kingpin, being bitten by the Venom symbiote, and teaming up with fellow webslinger warriors Silk and Spider-Woman. Now, in SPIDER-GWEN #34, Gwen’s going to have to face her biggest battle yet – and she’ll have to do it without a mask or a secret identity!

 

“All I can say is it’s been an incredible journey,” said series writer Jason Latour. “A little itch in the back of our minds became a one shot that lasted 41 issues as of issue #34, spanned across nearly every form of media, and inspired countless cosplayers and artists. Gwen Stacy changed our lives forever – and now she gives us one last gift – the chance to wrap her story up the way we always intended.”

 

All the epic adventure, all the crazy crossovers – it’s all been leading to this. Don’t miss SPIDER-GWEN #34, in comic shops this July!

The Return of Descriptions in Need of Hexes

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 11:00
Edd Cartier
Between Inaust and Rynaw on the Old Panarch Road, a hired coach rumbles past pulled at breakneck speed by a velocipede team. One wonders what mission drives the passengers to brave the dangers and discomforts of the road at night with marauding Gog bands in the vicinity, an ogre slain nearby within a fortnight, and the uncanny croak of a nyctoghoul heard in the distance.

In a clearing in Unthran Wood, a flame-colored thrykee has fallen, bleeding and broken-winged, dying. Skeleton Men pirates move out from their flier, stalking cautiously toward the creature with weapons drawn. The thrykee's saddle is empty. Citrine scintilla glint in the grass, forming a loose trail out from it and toward the surrounding trees.


Enrique AlcatenaBeyond the old fortress of Eneb-Draath, at the edge of the Sanguine Desert, youthful bands of tribesfolk howl and dance around fires built amid the fearsome, angular shadow of their war machines, their war gods. Drunk on liquor made from desert lichen and machine ichor, they whip themselves into a battle frenzy. The tribes claim descent from the First Men who were born in the void and reared solely by machines, and so view the ancient and derelict things left from the First Men's war with the ieldri as their birthright.

These are from this world.

Wednesday Comics: Stuff I Read in the Last Week

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 04/11/2018 - 11:00

Injection Vol. 1
A thinktank of eccentric geniuses do a bad thing combining the occult with AI and the world may pay for it if they can't set it right. Typical Warren Ellis characters (very competent but flawed, unique protagonists) in a story that is a bit X-Files-ian (or really more reminiscent of the X-file progenitor Nigel Kneale) but with a more action-y flair.


The Terrifics #1
Four super-powered individuals (Mr. Terrific, Metamorpho, Plastic Man, and a Phantom Girl) led by a genius get together to have fantastic adventures. Not a lot happens in the first issue but it ends with an appearance by [SPOILERS] Tom Strong, so they have my interest at least for a couple more issues.

VOID TRIP TAKES YOU ON A ROAD TRIP TO THE FINAL FRONTIER

First Comics News - Tue, 04/10/2018 - 15:14

The entire five-issue miniseries gets collected in paperback this May

PORTLAND, OR, 04/10/2018 — Ryan O’Sullivan (Turncoat, The Evil Within, Warhammer 40,000) and Plaid Klaus’ (Turncoat) sci-fi road trip miniseries VOID TRIP will be collected in a conveniently bingeable trade paperback this May from Image Comics.

Meet Ana and Gabe—the last two humans left alive in the galaxy.

They’re low on fuel, they’re low on food, and they’re low on psychedelic space froot, but they’re still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise super-planet Euphoria. VOID TRIP is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it.

“VOID TRIP aims to answer the question: ‘how can we be free in a universe that will always course-correct to limit us?’” said O’Sullivan. “This isn’t your typical adventure comic, with violence as the solution to every conflict. It’s a road trip story. Its main concern is exploring the human condition. It’s Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson meets Herman Melville and Cormac McCarthy. Expect laughter, tears, and existential dread in equal measure.”

VOID TRIP (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0668-4, Diamond code: MAR180629) hits comic book shops Wednesday, May 30th; the final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 16th. It will be available in bookstores Tuesday, June 5th and can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Indigo, and Books-A-Million.

Visit Skaro

Sorcerer's Skull - Mon, 04/09/2018 - 11:00
For those of you not familiar with Doctor Who lore (which I would imagine are vanshing few members of my audience, but still), Skaro is the homeworld of those plunger-armed, shrill-voiced robotic monsters, the Daleks.

According to the map, first appearing in The Dalek Book (1964), Skaro is almost D&D Outer Plane weird. Check out the named locales here:

Seas of Rust, Ooze, and Acid. The Lake of Mutations. The Radiation Range. All pretty dire stuff. Also, don't miss the note on the giant "serpents" of Darren that are really mutated earthworms!
If that's not enough, subterranean Skaro, is just as weird:
