Know also O Prince, that Thulsa Doom did not go quietly into the night, his spirit endured, weak and horrible and viscous. Free of all humanity, hungering with a primal desire, all his thoughts were bent on but a single purpose, Thulsa Doom wanted to go Home. Atlantis Ressurrection! When that which sank beneath the waves rises once more, and the Empire of Atlantis remembers its lost glory, can Sonja save the Hyborean nations from slavery and DOOM!
It Came From Beneath the Sea… AGAIN #1
In the 1950s, the U.S. Navy encountered and destroyed a gigantic octopus that attacked shipping and wreaked havoc on the west coast of the United States. American forces killed the creature and ended the threat once and for all. Or so they thought. They were wrong. Now, another monster is rising in the warm blue waters surrounding Taru Taru, a speck of land far out in the Pacific. And this time it’s worse than anyone ever imagined.
ARCHER AND ARMSTRONG #1
Writer: Fred Van Lente
Artist: Clayton Henry
Publisher: Valiant Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
After years of training, Obadiah Archer has been dispatched to the heart of America’s festering modern day Babylon, aka New York City, to root out and kill the infamous Great Satan of his parents’ sect. Unfortunately, dying has never been easy for Archer’s target – the hard-drinking year-old immortal known as Armstrong. Together, this unlikely pair of heroes is about to stumble headfirst into a centuries-old conspiracy that will bring the whole of ancient history crashing down on the modern day Valiant Universe. And that’s going to mean one Hell of a hangover.

As he explores his new surroundings he is confronted by a bizarre lost world of dinosaurs and other strange creatures. Drum must learn to survive in this terrifying new reality while coming to terms with fragments of a past he isn’t sure he wants to remember.

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
As promised, this week, it is the battle between the House Elf and the Gollum. Need we say more?
“It’s about remembering someone so important to me I was going to spend the rest of my life with her.” What Peter Parker didn’t know was that meant Gwen Stacy would only get to spend the rest of her life with him. This is the story of how they fell in love. Or more appropriately, how they almost didn’t fall in love. Welcome to Spider-Man’s life. Bad before good. It’s kind of amazing. So to get the girl of his dreams, he’ll have to run the gauntlet of the Green Goblin, the Rhino, two Vultures and a mysterious man in the shadows controlling it all. Join the Eisner Award-winning team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale (Superman for All Seasons, Batman: The Long Halloween, DAREDEVIL: YELLOW, HULK: GRAY) in the story about Peter Parker’s first love, Gwen Stacy. Highlighted by the introduction of Mary Jane Watson, it is a critical moment in Spider-Man’s life when everything was just coming together – only to fall apart. Collecting SPIDER-MAN: BLUE #1-6.
