This week, IDW Publishing sends Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Doctor Who #1, Fallen Angel: Reborn #1, G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation #, and The Last Resort #1.

Angel: After the Fall, Vol. 4
Joss Whedon, Bryan Lynch (w) • Franco Urru (a) • Alex Garner (c)

The excitement of After the Fall continues in this latest offering from Whedon and Lynch! With truths revealed, master plans laid out, and people dying, it’s clear evil is winning the fight in Los Angeles. In this decisive story, a climactic battle will see Angel live free or die for the final time.


Doctor Who #1
Tony Lee (w) • Al Davison (a) • Paul Grist, Al Davison (c)

At long last Doctor Who is an ongoing monthly series! Tony Lee (Doctor Who: The Forgotten), kicks off the time/space-faring series with the two-part “Silver Scream.” In chapter one, the Doctor travels to 1920s Hollywood where he befriends Charlie Chaplin and, of course, discovers an alien plot! Lee is joined by Al Davison (The Dreaming) on this first story arc. Covers by Paul Grist and Davison.


The Dreamer: The Consequence of Nathan Hale
Lora Innes (w) • Lora Innes, Jenny Frison (a) • Frison (c)

Creator Lora Innes writes and illustrates the tale of 17-year-old Beatrice “Bea” Whaley, a student who begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier that fought during the Revolutionary War. Prone to keeping her head in the clouds, Bea welcomes her nightly adventures in 1776. But it is not long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more…


Fallen Angel: Reborn #1
Peter David (w) • J.K. Woodward (a) • Woodward, Franco Urru (c)

You can’t keep a fallen Angel down for long! Liandra returns in this all-new series by Peter David and J.K. Woodward, and for her first four-part adventure, she’ll be battling alongside a special guest-star… Joss Whedon’s Illyria! How did Illyria come to Bete Noire? Will they meet as friends or foes? You’ll have to pick up this issue to find out!


G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation #3 (of 4)
Denton J. Tipton (w) • Casey Maloney (a) • Maloney (c)

The spit has hit the fan! It’s PG-13 and I can’t say “spit?” Are you kidding me? Anyway, point being—this issue explodes with excitement and ramps up the danger to lead us into… in stores July 15!


The Last Resort #1
Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray (w) • Giancarlo Caracuzzo (a) Amanda Conner, Darwyn Cooke (c)

A zombie epic that pays homage to 1970s exploitation films and disaster movies like Airport and Towering Inferno. In an entertaining and darkly over-the-top celebration of gore and sex, The Last Resort transforms a Caribbean paradise into a biological wasteland populated with homicidal flesh-eating vacationers! From the acclaimed writers of Jonah Hex and Uncle Sam & the Freedom Fighters!
