Web of Venom: Carnage Born #1 – $4.99
Writer Donny Cates | Artist Danilo Beyruth | Cover Artist Kyle Hotz (Marvel Comics)
Carnage’s status quo has been all over the place in recent years, from being ripped in half in space by the Sentry to becoming microscopic in Minimum Carnage to bonding with Norman Osborn and becoming Red Goblin. Now the latest big chapter in this psychotic villain’s career begins in the newest Web of Venom special. In this issue, a Carnage-obsessed cult is trying to resurrect the late Cletus Kasady. We don’t know whether they’ll succeed or what the end result of this issue will be. But given how much Donny Cates and his partners have done to reinvigorate Eddie Brock, we can’t wait to see what they do with one of venom’s greatest enemies.
Atomic Robo: Greatest Hits #1 – $1.00
Writer Brian Clevinger | Artist Scott Wegener (IDW Publishing)
As far as all-ages superhero sagas go, it’s hard to top Atomic Robo. He’s basically a more family-friendly version of Hellboy. And if you’ve never had the good fortune to dive into this pulp sci-fi universe, there’s truly never been a better time. This issue includes a sampling of Atomic Robo stories for the rock-bottom price of $1.00. You really can’t go wrong at that price.
Middlewest #1 – $3.99
Writer Skottie Young | Artist Jorge Corona | Cover Artist Mike Huddleston (Image Comics)
We’re always happy to see Skottie Young’s name attached to a new series, whether he’s drawing or writing. This new ongoing series looks to play directly to his and artist Jorge Corona’s storytelling strengths. Middlewest is billed as a coming-of-age drama about a boy named Abel who is forced to navigate a chaotic, magical countryside and come to terms with the (possibly literal) monster inside. Young has said that the series is inspired by everything from the animated films of Don Bluth and Hayao Miyazaki to the novels of Stephen King. So expect a pretty eclectic fantasy universe from this series.
Justice League #12 – $3.99
Writer James Tynion IV | Artists Frazer Irving & Bruno Redondo | Cover Artist Jorge Jimenez (DC Comics)
One of the best parts of Justice League is seeing James Tynion periodically break away from the main storyline to focus on the Legion of Doom for an issue. Even the “Drowned Earth” crossover is no barrier to a good legion of Doom tale. This issue features Batman battling the Legion even as he barely clings to life in a hospital bed.
Half the appeal of this issue is the presence of two superstar artists. Frazer Irving is the perfect artist to depict some of DC’s most sinister villains, while Bruno Redondo captures DC’s heroes at their very best. Taken together, this should be a comic of very stark contrasts.
