Image brings us its next biggest hit since DIE #1 with LITTLE BIRD #1 this Wednesday!

One of the most promising new IMAGE COMICS launches we’ve seen since DIE #1 dropped, this is gonna be a book you don’t want to miss!
With the same limitless scope as a new EAST OF WEST or SAGA and the drama and surrealism of Akira, LITTLE BIRD follows a young resistance fighter who battles against an oppressive American Empire and searches for her own identity in a world on fire.
This book is gorgeous — and for good reason, artist Ian Bertram amazed the heck out of us with his work on HOUSE OF PENANCE a couple years back, and man, he’s killing it on this one!
Pure post-apocalyptic modern fantasy awesomeness, LITTLE BIRD is a beautiful mix of ultra-violence, and surrealist science fiction that is absolutely unique!
Do NOT sleep on this one!

TRANSFORMERS returns to comics with an all new ongoing series, and a perfect place to start reading the TRANSFORMERS comics in TRANSFORMERS #1 this Wednesday!

If there’s one thing that we can say with total certainty: nobody does Transformers the way IDW does Transformers.
For quite some time now, they’ve been absolutely killing it with various mini-series, and epic story arcs featuring our favorite giant robots from another world, and now — they’re providing the PERFECT place to get into the characters with an ongoing TRANSFORMERS series kicking off this Wednesday!
In the infinite universe, there exists a planet like no other: Cybertron!
Home to the Transformers, and a thriving hub for inter-stellar commerce, it is a world brimming with organic and constructed diversity.
Immense structures line its landscape. Mechanical giants roam across its surface. Starship-sized titans orbit its skies, keeping a constant protective watch above and below.
Ancient Transformers merge into its very fabric.
Small, mysterious creatures skulk in its shadows.
It is a truly amazing realm, long untouched by war, and exuberantly reaching for the stars.
This is the Cybertron that Optimus Prime and Megatron vie for in this bold new origin—a world of seemingly endless peace! All that changes when Bumblebee and Windblade take a newly-forged Cybertronian on his first voyage through this world of wonders—they are confronted by the hard reality of the first murder to have occurred on Cybertron in living memory!

Star Wars Vader: Dark Visions #1 delivers a new series that shows the corners of the galaxy that view Vader.. as a dark knight!

We’re telling you: Marvel’s Star Wars books have been some of the best darn takes on the Star Wars canon ever, and it looks like the streak continues with an incredible new mini-series that shows us a side of VADER not shown often… one where he’s viewed as a hero.
WHO IS DARTH VADER?
He has been many things: a SITH warrior, a commander, a destroyer.
DARTH VADER is to many throughout the GALACTIC EMPIRE a symbol of fear and mysterious, otherworldly power. But there are some who have seen the DARK LORD in a different light.
There are some corners of the galaxy so dark and desperate that even Vader can be a knight in shining armor.
The first issue of a new STAR WARS limited series sheds new light on the many sides of the galaxy’s greatest villain.

We LOVED this book! Seriously: the talent was top notch, and every single one-shot brought the whole story together perfectly.
Great writers, great art – this is a prime example of what Marvel is about in 2019.
Doctor Strange! The Hulk! Namor, the Sub-Mariner! The Silver Surfer!
An unsolvable murder.
An aquatic doorway to nothingness.
A wanderer at the end of time.
And a cosmic train of planetary proportions.

The Surfer once more serves Galactus!
And the Hulk is…Immortal! Estranged and distressed, can these former allies come together in time to stave off a crisis of cosmic proportions?

Sideshow legend (and one of the stars of Tod Browning’s FREAKS) Schlitzie gets his story told in NOBODY’S FOOL: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SCHLITZIE THE PINHEAD!!

Whether it’s from The Ramones iconic battle cry or the moments in film classic FREAKS, Schlitzie the Pinhead is a huge part of American pop culture, and it’s pretty awesome to see his story being told here!
From Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead, comes the first-ever biography of Schlitzie, a major sideshow attraction from the early 1920s to the late 1960s.

Today, Schlitzie is most well-known for his appearance in the cult classic Freaks. In researching Schlitzie’s life (1901-1971), Griffith has tracked down primary sources and archives throughout the country, including conducting interviews with those who worked with him and had intimate knowledge of his life.
This graphic novel biography provides never-before-revealed details of his life, offering a unique look into his world and restoring dignity to his life by recognizing his contributions to popular culture.
