Comics | This Week’s New & Noteworthy | May 27th

The comics preview is all you need to find out which new titles are hitting comic store shelves this week.

Whether you’re a regular reader looking for something new or a newcomer to comics, I give you my top three picks and a round-up of each #1 comic hitting the shelves this week.

Top Pick | Fight Club 2 #1

Some imaginary friends never go away . . . Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, he lives a mundane life. A kid, a wife, pills to keep his destiny at bay. But it won’t last long; the wife has seen to that. The time has come . . . Rize or Die.

Dark Horse Comics

Sons Of The Devil #1

From New York Times Best Selling writer Brian Buccellato and artist Toni Infante comes a psychological horror story about Travis, an average guy trying to get by, who discovers that he has familial ties to a deadly cult. Told across three decades, Sons Of The Devil is an exploration of cults, family, and the dark side of human nature.


Image Comics

Providence #1

In his most carefully considered work in decades, Alan Moore deconstructs all of Lovecraft’s concepts, reinventing the entirety of his work inside a painstakingly researched framework of American history. Both sequel and prequel to Neonomicon, Providence begins in 1919 and blends the mythical visions of HPL flawlessly into the cauldron of racial and sexual intolerance that defined that era on the East Coast of America. Every line from artist Jacen Burrows is perfectly honed to complete this immersive experience. The result is a breathtaking masterpiece of sequential art that will define modern horror for this generation. Invoking a comparison it to a prior literary masterpiece is not something to be handled lightly, but in scope, importance and execution: Providence is the Watchmen of horror.
