Comic Orders Due by 4th May 2024

This is your weekly reminder that Final Order Cutoff (FOC) comic orders are due by 10am on Saturday! Send an email over to shop@proudlion.co.uk to add any of these titles to your orders or pull list. This week’s FOC includes the adventures of a young Wonder Woman; a DC Pride celebration of Rachel Pollack; Wolverine vs vampires; horrors both creepy and cosmic; a snapshot of 80s skate culture; the return of Peter Bagge’s Hate; a cartoony team-up between the TMNT and Usagi Yojimbo; and… SCROOGE MCDUCK?!

Some publishers are no longer offering later printings, and some titles sell out on release. Orders placed after FOC rely on extra stock being available, so get your order in today so you don’t miss out!

If you want to choose a specific cover, make sure to let us know in your email! Otherwise you will receive whichever cover we order (typically the Main Cover, or Cover A).

UNCLE SCROOGE INFINITY DIME #1 – It’s the story you never expected! Scrooge McDuck’s fabled money bin has been stolen by a shocking culprit! Now the world’s toughest duck must undertake a quest unlike any other, alongside a surprising array of allies: other versions of himself! An oversized special, from Marvel mainstay writer JASON AARON (Thor, Avengers) and a cadre of celebrated Scrooge artists! Also re-presenting the classic Christmas On Bear Mountain, the first appearance of Uncle Scrooge by the legendary DISNEY COMICS creator, CARL BARKS!

WONDER WOMAN THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG DIANA TP – Eisner Award-winner Jordie Bellaire and rising star Paulina Ganucheau provide an intimate look into Wonder Woman’s upbringing and dangerous secrets of her past! Once upon a time she was just Diana, the young princess of Themyscira. Back then, she struggled to find her place on an island deemed paradise by many, but which was, to her, a prison. Diana yearned for adventure, or at least a purpose. So when ancient texts portraying her Themyscira’s history go missing, she gets both. How far will our hero go to find the texts and the truths they’re hiding? Find out in this exciting story that promises to be a classic for years to come!

DC PRIDE A CELEBRATION OF RACHEL POLLACK #1 (ONE SHOT) – In the Nineties, writer Rachel Pollack did the impossible: she raised the bar for surprise and strangeness in her beloved run following Grant Morrison’s career-making Doom Patrol! This one-shot celebrates Rachel’s impact on diversity in comic books with a new original short story returning her most cherished creation, Kate Godwin, a.k.a. Coagula, to the spotlight in a tale of triumph over death itself written by Joe Corallo, Rachel’s longtime friend and collaborator, and drawn by Rye Hickman This one-shot also reprints the debut of the iconic Coagula, DC’s first transgender superhero, from Doom Patrol #70, along with the long-unavailable one-shot Vertigo Visions: The Geek (with superstar artist Michael Allred)!

WOLVERINE BLOOD HUNT #1 – LOGAN FIGHTS BACK THE DARKNESS! WOLVERINE’s the best there is at what he does – and today, fighting vampires is going to have to top that list! Don’t miss the MARVEL DEBUT of scintillating scribe TOM WALTZ (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Last Ronin) as he teams up with daring artistic dynamo JUAN JOSÉ RYP (WOLVERINE, VENGEANCE OF THE MOON KNIGHT) for a bloody good time! As the sky darkens across the globe and vampires reign, what hidden plot puts LOGAN directly in their crosshairs? Hint: It’s like nothing you’ve seen in BLOOD HUNT yet! Be here as the plot (and blood!) thickens when a secret vampire sect enacts a startling strategy that’ll take Logan – and the world – to the brink! Guest-starring some SURPRISE characters from Wolverine’s past! (This title will be customer order only, make sure to add it to your pull list!)

MAMMOTH #1 (OF 5)– Something is wrong in the deep forests of Broke Tree Valley. Something deadly. Something mammoth. The legends speak of something larger than human comprehension… A monstrous phantom that disappears for decades at a time. Now, it’s back, and things are about to go Very Bad if four people – Olivia, Jess, Kokoro, and Mason, scientists who have come to the small city of Kasbro to investigate a bizarre series of seismic activities in this heavily forested valley – can’t put the Mammoth to rest. One real problem with this is… Olivia’s dead. (This title will be customer order only, make sure to add it to your pull list!)

INTO THE UNBEING PART ONE #1 – A group of climate scientists working in a remote base camp on the Australian outback discover an impossible landform. They venture inside expecting the unexpected, and the titular Unbeing delivers. True to the traditions of cosmic horror, they discover an anomalous environment that defies everything they think they know about the world. From critically acclaimed writer Zac Thompson and visionary artist Hayden Sherman. (This title will be customer order only, make sure to add it to your pull list!)

GROMMETS #1 (OF 7) – Two best-friend outcasts navigate the Sacramento suburbs of 1984, where they find a home in skateboard culture and punk rock. On one side of the coin, Grommets is an authentic look at 80s skate culture, a snapshot of the generation that turned skating into a worldwide phenomenon. On the other, it’s a heartfelt coming-of-age story that follows two friends from troubled homes as they navigate their damage in an era when no one cared. (This title will be customer order only, make sure to add it to your pull list!)

HATE REVISITED #1 (OF 4) – Peter Bagge returns to the series that defined a generation with this all-new, four-issue monthly miniseries! Buddy and Lisa, now middle aged with a free spirited young adult of their own, confront their own poor decisions as young people in the grungy 1990s. Expertly shifting between the present day (in full colour) and their Gen X heyday (in glorious, crosshatched B&W), we learn for the first time the story of how Buddy met Lisa, Stinky, George, and Val. Meanwhile, Buddy is forced to come to terms with the tragic — and covered-up — circumstances of Stinky’s untimely death (way back in Hate #27). Hate Revisited expertly showcases Bagge’s inimitable humour and knack for character, and the generational shift lends an unexpected gravitas to their lives. This is the must-have comic of the summer! (This title will be customer order only, make sure to add it to your pull list!)

TMNT USAGI YOJIMBO SATURDAY MORNING ADVENTURES #1 – Usagi Yojimbo, honourable samurai and rabbit out of time, has been stuck in New York City ever since one of Donatello’s experiments with a transdimensional portal went awry. Usagi has grown to appreciate the city, his friends in the Turtles, and most of all, pizza, but he still wants to return to his own dimension more than anything. When Donatello finally finds a way for Usagi to do just that, the rabbit warrior invites the Turtles to visit his home…where they find a dangerous new enemy. It’s the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Usagi Yojimbo together again in a whole new dimension! (This title will be customer order only, make sure to add it to your order list!)
