Horrific losses land Anna with the very last thing she wants: more responsibility, in the shape of eight young replacement pilots to be trained for combat. But with the Battle of Kursk reaching its climax, rookies are nothing but lambs to the slaughter- and even the most experienced pilots find themselves flying on borrowed time. The former Night Witch meets her destiny, as Motherland- and the second series of Battlefields- conclude with a bang.

ROBOCOP #6

Cover by DAVID MICHAEL BECK

Before we start the Road Trip (beginning in issue #7), Rob Williams packs a lot of action and adventure in this stand alone story featuring Robocop vs. the ED-309 (you read that right, not the 209, the 309 and wait’ll you see it!)

“You can feel their excitement throughout the story and that translates to a perfect example of what comic book reading should be: a kick-ass time. Give this series a look, it won’t disappoint.”– Ain’t It Cool News

ANI-MAX #1 ONE-SHOT

Written by RON MARZ
Art & cover by JEEVAN J. KANG & LIQUID COMICS

12-year old Max Duncan becomes the most powerful boy in the world when he gains the power to absorb the abilities and physical characteristics of any animal he touches. Lost and separated from his family during a vacation in the dense Amazon jungle, Max is chosen by the Earth Spirits as the latest in a long lineage of planetary defenders. Entrusted with a mystical artifact known as the Animus Stone, Max gains the power to absorb the abilities of any animal he touches and transform himself into a human-animal hybrid for seven minutes at a time. Taking on the attributes of lizards, lions, tigers, elephants, spiders, dolphins, and more – sometimes the transformations are gross, weird and bizarre – Max has a power no one else in the world seems to have. Joined by his faithful friends, Chris and Jenny, the three young heroes gradually find a way to use Max’s abilities to protect the planet and all its many creatures. Now in development as an animated series.

Bullet to the Head, the crime noir masterpiece continues, written by Matz and drawn by Colin Wilson (Ed Brubaker’s Point Blank)! The book centers on a pair of assassin buddies and a pair of cop buddies, with a body count that grows as the story progresses and each pair trying to figure out what is happening! In this third issue of the award-winning crime saga, the pair of assassins strike again! But why?

    Mitchell speak to self in third person and with poor grammer, yet Mitchell know what “caterwauling” means.

    Ani-Max is Ben 10 mixed with Animal Man, although the “having to touch the animal to turn into a hybrid of it” would be problematic. Why would he ever chance touching a super dangerous animal like a tiger or shark? He’d more than likely stay some form of safer hybrid, like a dogman, catman, sheeple, goldfishguy. It’d be a better conceit, albeit kind of already done, if he could access the morphogenetic field to mimic or hybridize whatever powers or if he could simply be in the presence of the animal in question kind of like B’Wana Beast. I’ll probably like the cartoon when it arrives though, so no big deal, just wouldn’t want some kid to run out and try to grab ahold of a wild bear just to see if his powers will kick in.
