There are plenty of Marvel annuals hitting the shelves of your local comics shop this week, a great secret Santa gift for your nerdy work colleague? New comics day is just a sleep away and there are a whole host of new stories to jump on-board with this week. Here are my top three new and noteworthy along with a everything else that’s new on the shelves of your local comic book store this week.
Top Pick | Bitch Planet #1
2014 Best Writer Eisner Award nominee Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly, Captain Marvel) and Valentine De Landro (X-Factor) team up for the very third time to bring you the premiere issue of Bitch Planet, their highly-anticipated women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation riff. Think Margaret Atwood meets Inglourious Basterds.
The Valiant #1
The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.
Herald Lovecraft & Tesla #1
When Nikola Tesla’s fiancée, Amelia Earhart, steals a dangerous prototype engine for a trans-Atlantic flight, Tesla seeks out the interdimensional expertise of H.P. Lovecraft to save her. Lovecraft, however, has problems of his own as he investigates the identity of Cthulhu’s Herald. Variant cover by Colin Dyer, limited to 1,500 copies!
