|Bravest Warriors Tales Of The Holo John #1
(W) John Omohundro (A) Eryk Donovan (CA) Jonathan Brandon Sawyer
What happens when you flush a pet fish down the Holo John? (Hint: It fantasizes it was a shark instead!) Or what if the Holo John gains sentience and 'dreams of electric pee'? All that and more are covered in this collection of short stories about the Bravest Warriors' outofthisworld outhouse. Who knew they used their emotions-based powers in the loo, too?
(W) Alan Moore (A/CA) Jacen Burrows
In his most carefully considered work in decades, 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.
Moore has designed every cover, every single page, and every nuance of this work to create his most fully-realized vision to date. There are no ads, all 32 pages are written by Moore, and Jacen Burrows has spent the past two years slaving over the finest detail possible on the pages. The entire work is already written, intricately crafted to tie the most nuanced threads together over the breadth of the series. Painstakingly researched, meticulously produced, this is a sequential masterpiece that will serve as important a call to the next generation of comic book writers as Watchmen did 30 years ago: this is a definitive demonstration of just how good a comic book can be.
|Surface Tension #1
(W/A/CA) Jay Gunn
Months after mysterious corals drew 99% of humanity into the sea, a band of survivors ekes out a hollow existence on a remote British island. When two people are cast up on the beach, completely blue, but very much alive, the island is thrown into turmoil. What caused the mass extinction event? How did these two return from the deep, when billions died? Most importantly, what is the coral, and what does it want with the Earth? The oceans have never seemed so threatening!
|Swords Of Sorrow Masquerade and Kato Special #1
(W) G. Willow Wilson (A) Noah Salonga (CA) Billy Tan
A team-up set up by SWORDS OF SORROW's Gail Simone, featuring the writers that she hand-picked: G. Willow Wilson and Erica Schultz!
When Kato's luxury getaway car, Black Beauty, takes on a mind of its own and goes on a rampage through the streets of New York, Masquerade is hot on its trail... but when the two clash, who will end up in the driver's seat?
Strange forces are at work and unlikely heroes must come together to solve the mystery!
