This Week's New Release Highlights!

Love triangles, card games turned comics, and unseen twists!



Indiana Jones For Old People

The Dying & The Dead #1

A murder at a wedding reveals a fifty year-old secret. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly disparate events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah. 
 
It's Indiana Jones for Old People. There are no fedoras, only bedpans.
 

The One With A Pteranodon/Stegosaurus/Shark Love Triangle

Spider-Man and The X-Men #2

•  Savage Land from colonizing Staten Island?

•  Traitor! Has Shark Girl really betrayed her classmates for these cold-blooded creeps?

•  Romance! Have you ever seen a pteranodon/stegosaurus/shark love triangle? You will if you buy this issue!

 

Latest Card Game Turned Comic

Munchkin #1

Based on the immensely popular card game, Munchkin comes to comics! Munchkin takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, it has since then taken on nonfantasy and non-gaming elements. Characters in Munchkin change constantly but never permanently. What do Munchkins do? They play for the win. They are rules lawyers. They backstab. They gloat. They whine when someone else backstabs or gloats. Munchkins are emotional. Munchkins may be clever, but they are never wise. Munchkins have short attention spans. Munchkins may be brave in the face of awful odds, but they are even braver when beating up crippled goblins for their lunch money. If a Munchkin seems to show mercy, it's because he was bored or distracted. After all, even stomping an ant helps you level up.
 

The One With The Twist You Won't See Coming (Even Though They Told You)

Batman Eternal #43

Don't miss this special issue that loops our story all the way back to where it started in BATMAN #28 - but with a twist you won't see coming!

 

Best Solicit Copy

Punks The Comic #4

I've written a lot of solicitation copy in my life. I am always curious if people actually read it or not. If you're reading this, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'll send you a free digital thing.
