DISNEY VILLAINS HADES #1
(W) Elliott Kalan (A/VCA) Alessandro Ranaldi (CA) Karen Darboe (VCA) Jae Lee, Trish Forstner, Francesco Tomaselli
Hades – the lord of darkness! The most deceitful and scheming of the Greek gods!
The one god not invited to the weekly brunch at Mount Olympus!
Obviously, a slight like this calls for the total destruction of the gods of Olympus. To make that happen, the hot-tempered ruler of the underworld needs to acquire the magical Golden Fleece of Colchis. Unfortunately, the Fleece is guarded by a sleepless dragon and soldiers made out of teeth, so Hades assembles a ragtag group of morally questionable adventurers to help him steal the Fleece before some dude named Jason and his Argonaut bros swoop in and ruin his perfectly logical plan.
It’s absolute chaotic hilarity courtesy of writer Elliott Kalan (Spider-Man & The X-Men) and artist Alessandro Ranaldi (Zorro)!
THE CULL #1 (OF 5)
(W) Kelly Thompson (A/CA) Mattia De Iulis
Five friends set off to shoot a short film on a forbidden rock near their home the summer before they all go their separate ways. But that’s not really why they’re there. One of them has lied.
And that lie will change their lives forever.
Eisner-winning writer KELLY THOMPSON (BLACK CLOAK) and superstar artist MATTIA DE IULIS (Captain America) team up for their first creator-owned work together!
UNCANNY AVENGERS #1 (OF 5)
(W) Jonathan Hickman, Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Garron, Javier
Innocent people and world leaders are dead after simultaneous attacks on the U.S. and Krakoan governments, and that means one thing: It’s time for a new squad of Avengers.
False-flag attacks meant to whip up anti-mutant hysteria are unfolding, and hey, some of Steve Rogers’ best friends are mutants.
Your new unity squad is: Captain America, Rogue, Deadpool, Quicksilver, Psylocke and Monet.
They must solve the mystery of who the new, murderous Captain Krakoa is – and stop his team of killers from igniting the fires of a new world war.
