Donny Cates (THANOS WINS, VENOM) continues to build the mythology surrounding the VENOM symbiote with a new limited series, WEB OF VENOM: VE’NAM #1

The mythos and lore of the VENOM symbiote continues to unfold in this hard-hitting mini-series featuring Nick Fury and of course, the Klyntar symbiotes.
We gotta tell ya, one of the most fascinating developments in comics over the last couple years, has been the amount of depth and layered mythology that’s been built around the VENOM symbiote, and it’s all been coming to a head in the incredible VENOM run from Donny Cates that just hit issue #5 (and we’ve got all those issues in stock to get you current!)
Now, writer DONNY CATES (THANOS WINS, VENOM), explores more of the Klyntar symbiote back story in this new VIETNAM era mini-series, featuring Nick Fury and more!
As the United States of America struggled through the Vietnam War, Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. needed a secret weapon – and when an ancient creature was discovered at an archaeological dig site, he was sure he’d found it.
In reality, the discovery was an ancestor of the Klyntar symbiotes…and would become a waking nightmare for a platoon of American soldiers!

DC does another round of LOONEY TUNES vs. DCU crossovers, and they RULE!!!

One of the best BATMAN stories of the last decade came out of the last round of DCU x LOONEY TUNES one-shots (aka BATMAN / Elmer Fudd!), and now, there’s a whole new crop of one-shots dropping this week, and we’re LOVING THEM.
Leading the charge is THE JOKER / Daffy Duck, where Daffy Duck pays a call to the Acme corporate headquarters in Gotham City, and he finds the company long gone and their abandoned building now occupied by The Joker.
With a hit in progress, Daffy tries to sneak away, only to find himself in the clutches of the Clown Prince of Crime.
But Joker decides that there’s some potential in this manic bird and forces Daffy to join his gang. Will he find a way to escape…or will he become The Joker’s new right-hand duck?
And, then following closely behind, you’ve got HARLEY QUINN / GOSSAMER, which features one of our personal fav LOONEY TUNES — that big red hairy monster you all know and love, Gossamer!
In this one-shot, a violent storm leaves a large crate washed up on the beach at Coney Island.
When Harley breaks it open to see what’s inside, she suddenly has a new playmate to add to her cast of friends-a large, furry, orange beast called Gossamer.
It’s all fun and games until a giant robot attacks them. But who sent it? Harley immediately suspects only one man, but is it really The Joker behind this destructive rampage?

We also can’t overlook the awesomeness of the CATWOMAN / TWEETY & SYLVESTER one-shot, where in his relentless pursuit of Tweety, Sylvester suddenly finds himself with a new, human ally-Catwoman.

Tweety then realizes that he’s going to need some help too, and recruits a super-hero of his own.
It isn’t long before the scale of the conflict begins to get out of control and suddenly theres’s a full scale war between cats and birds that threatens to take over all of Gotham.
 
And, then rounding everything off, you’ve got the LEX LUTHOR / PORKY PIG one-shot, where facing financial and personal ruin, a desperate Porky Pig applies for and gets and entry-level position with LexCorp.
Grateful to his new benefactor, Porky becomes Luthor’s most loyal employee and defender. But when a major scandal breaks in the news and Lex is called before a Congressional Committee, guess who is about to be offered up as the sacrificial pig?

Celebrate the recently returned FANTASTIC FOUR with this special edition FANTASTIC FOUR #1 FACSIMILE  EDITION REPRODUCING THE FIRST EPIC ISSUE EXACTLY FOR JUST $3.99!! 

We think it’s safe to say that like us, many of you are pretty darn keen on comics history, and few things get more historic than the epic FANTASTIC FOUR run of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby that pretty much birthed the Marvel Universe as we know it.
So, in celebration of that incredible new FANTASTIC FOUR (which debuted a week or so ago), Marvel has reproduced the original 1st issue from way back when perfectly, and you can score it for your collection for just $3.99
As a fresh era begins for Marvel’s First Family, revisit the original Fantastic Four #1 in this special commemorative edition!
Stan Lee and Jack Kirby changed super hero storytelling forever when they introduced Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, and Susan and Johnny Storm.
Together, the adventurous quartet blast off on an experimental rocket flight – only to be bombarded by life-altering cosmic rays! Reed becomes the elastic Mister Fantastic! Ben transforms into the rocky Thing! Sue turns into an Invisible Girl!
And Johnny flames on as the Human Torch! They’ll use their incredible powers to help mankind – starting by fending off the menace of the Mole Man! Now, the book that started it all is re-presented in full – including its original ads – alongside suitably fantastic extras! It’s the next best thing to buying Fantastic Four #1 off the stands back in 1961!


EXTERMINATION #2 continues one of the best X-MEN event stories we’ve seen since the MESSIAH COMPLEX era!

EXTERMINATE THE PAST. ELIMINATE THE FUTURE.
The original team of teen mutants may have destroyed the future for all!
What’s it all about? In short: a lot of X-Characters that’ve popped up over the last few years are gonna get EXTERMINATED. And, hey – there’s a lot of versions of different X-Men around, so a streamlining is kind of a cool idea, right? We think so, and you know why, right? This is the road to some of the biggest X-MEN stuff to come, if the rumors serve right!
In EXTERMINATION,  it’s all about Cyclops. Iceman. Angel. Beast. Marvel Girl.
The original team of teen mutants brought together by Professor Charles Xavier many years ago have been shunted through time to find a world they barely recognize but were determined to help.
Now, finding themselves targeted for death, the future of mutantkind lies squarely in the hands of its past. Writer Ed Brisson (OLD MAN LOGAN, CABLE) and artist Pepe Larraz (UNCANNY AVENGERS, AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER) answer the biggest question of all: can the fate of the X-Men be changed?

We’re loving THE NEW WORLD!
The United States of America-after the Second Civil War.
Two lovers meet. One: a straight-edge vegan hacker anarchist boy with a penchant for messing with the State. The other: a chaotic, hedonistic cop with a reality TV show and a license to kill.  Seems like a match made in Hell, right?  Yet somehow, they find themselves in each other’s arms, and at the top of New California’s wanted list.
We are BIG fans of love stories with a twist, and this is giving us MAJOR Romeo and Juliet mixed with Mad Max vibes
Like we mentioned before, this isn’t Ales and Tradd’s first time collaborating.  They really seemed to have caught lightening in a bottle with their work on ZERO and SECRET AVENGERS, and continue to blend daring storytelling with gorgeous art.  Add in Heather’s gorgeous coloring and you’ve got an unstoppable team.
