New Comics (April Week 2)

New comics are here! This week includes unexplainable cartoonish powers, adventurers waging war against nightmares from beyond time and space, a former adventurer hiding from her bloody past, a pair of rivals teaming up to steal the Deck of Many Things, Hercules’ biggest adventure since choosing his mortal life, and more! Check out the details below.

UNCANNY VALLEY #1 (OF 6)

(W) Tony Fleecs (A/CA) Dave Wachter (VCA) Tony Fleecs

Oliver is a seemingly typical 12 year old boy… except for a mysterious family history that seems to start and end with his mother, and unexplainable powers, that is.

He can do things other boys can’t, to the point of landing him in some trouble. Baffled by the surreal cartoonish nature of his abilities and followed by a murder of peculiar crows, the mystery behind Oliver’s family history finally unfolds!

Written by fan-favourite writer Tony Fleecs (Stray Dogs, Local Man) and illustrated by acclaimed artist Dave Wachter (Punisher, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), discover what makes Oliver special and strange as he searches for his place in the world.


MONSTERS ARE MY BUSINESS & BUSINESS IS BLOODY #1

(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Patrick Piazzalunga

Meet Tanner “Griz” Grisholm.

Along with a shrewd necromancer who wants him dead and a chainsaw-wielding koala bear named Cuddles, as he wages a bloody war against nightmares from beyond time and space.

It’s thankless work, but someone has to do it.

And when a group of government contractors go missing in the nightmare landscape of the Flooded Zone, Griz stumbles into a mystery he may not be able to carve his way out of.

His old biker pals, the Howling Gargoyles, are up to no good, and the memories might be too much for Griz to handle.


WHEN THE BLOOD HAS DRIED #1

(W) Gary Moloney (A) Daniel Romero Ulloa (CA) Marco Rudy

Years ago, a stranger came to Carraig an Bhun, a little town on the edge of the Southern Territories.

The locals eventually came to see this “blow-in,” Meabh of Cklonia, as one of their own.

Now, Meabh has taken over as proprietor of The Lough Inn, finding a semblance of peace after a lifetime of adventuring… however, the proposed opening of a branch of the Adventurers’ Guild risks dragging her past into the present.

What would the townsfolk do if they discovered their beloved barkeep was once part of a ruthless band of rogue sell-swords masquerading as noble heroes?


D&D THIEF OF MANY THINGS #1 (ONE-SHOT)

(W) Boener, Ellen (A) Eduardo Mello (CA) Max Dunbar

The Deck of Many Things is the most infamous item in the Dungeons & Dragons canon. Any one of its cards could throw the world into chaos or, in the wrong hands, end it all together.

Our quest follows two ex-romantic rivals who team up to steal the cards, risking everything for the chance to save the lover they lost.

Dungeons & Dragons icon Jim Zub joins forces with up-and-coming writer Ellen Boener and artist Eduardo Mello for this new Baldur’s Gate tale.


HERCULES #1

(W) Elliott Kalan (A/CA) George Kambadais

The world’s favourite demigod-turned-mortal is back, and he’s about to embark on the biggest adventure since The Odyssey!

The Greek gods don’t really get why Hercules chose a mortal life over the opportunity to join them on Mt. Olympus, but since he proved his mettle as a hero many times over, they’re happy to enlist his help with missions that require interventions in the earthly realm. So when Aphrodite grants an artist’s wish that his sculpture be brought to life, Herc gets the call to clean things up when the newly conscious artwork proves to be more bone-crushingly lively than expected!

But after discovering that the rogue statue is just misunderstood, and a little rambunctious (much like himself as a youth), Hercules returns to explain the situation to Aphrodite – only to find her temple empty and abandoned.

Is the goddess of love just pouting, or is something more sinister afoot? If you know anything about classic mythology, you know it’s going to be the latter!

The immortal team of Emmy Award-winning writer Elliott Kalan (The Daily Show) and Gargoyles artist George Kambadais bring these legends of antiquity to hilarious new life in this brand-new ongoing series.
