A day late this week, forgive me. It’s a quiet one this week for the big two publishers but there are plenty of independents putting out first editions… 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 | Shadow Show #1
In the prose anthology Shadow Show, acclaimed writers gathered to pay tribute to the work of the incomparable Ray Bradbury, known for such timeless classics as Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and The Illustrated Man. What resulted was a collection of remarkable and unique stories that beautifully illustrate Bradbury’s enduring imprint on the fantasy, science fiction, and mystery genres.
An epic 26 centuries in the making: In the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, Odyssia the Clever Champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home. A gender-bent eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey begins here.
Planet Gigantic #1
When two genetically-engineered teenagers crash-land on a strange planet, they must learn to rely on themselves and their still-developing powers as they face down a giant rock monster. Also in this issue: Lyana the Seeker braves a cursed tomb in search of the fabled Eye of the Sun.
