Due to the recent 4th July holiday in the US and shipping problems from the printers, Diamond UK’s full shipment of new releases did not arrive in time.
Unfortunately, this means there are no new release comics from Marvel & IDW in the UK this week.
All late titles will now ship next week and have a new UK on sale date of Wednesday 20th July.
ABOVE SNAKES #1 (OF 5)
(W) Sean Lewis (A/CA) Hayden Sherman
The hit team behind THE FEW and THUMBS returns with an all-new WILD AS HELL miniseries! Writer SEAN LEWIS (KING SPAWN), artist HAYDEN SHERMAN (Wasted Space), and rock-star letterer HASSAN OTSMANE-ELHAOU introduce a world where Deadwood-style Westerns collide with the fantasia of NEIL GAIMAN in the story of Dirt, a man seeking vengeance for his murdered wife with nothing but a talking vulture to prod him on. ABOVE SNAKES is a fast and furious explosion of Western tropes and American vengeance that explores where our rage can take us.
