New Mutants brings horror to the X-Men Franchise
KID LOBOTOMY #1
Writer: Peter Milligan
Artist: Tess Fowler
Publisher: IDW Publishing/Black Crown
Cover Price: $3.99
Kafka meets King Lear by way of Young Frankenstein in KID LOBOTOMY, a dark, demented, monthly satire that follows a dysfunctional family of hoteliers. Will sibling rivalry, seduction, and shapeshifting eventually lead to sanity or salvation?
Big Daddy is a rich hotelier who, in a cracked echo of King Lear, appoints his youngest descendant to manage The Suites, a peculiar hotel located behind the Black Crown Pub. Affectionately known as Kid, his good looks and swagger can’t hide a rough childhood of strange therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently qualified to perform lobotomies. A failed rockstar/successful madman gets one last change to prove his worth—and regain his sanity—by turning the hotel that was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business, despite a host of obstacles—including his own sister—who would love nothing more than to see him fail miserably.
FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #4 (of 4)
Writer: JODY HOUSER
Artist: CARY NORD
Publisher: Valiant Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
The final countdown!
Bloodshot was a bust… Divinity didn’t work… Ninjak was nixed… No matter which of the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes she recruits to her aid, Faith still can’t save the time stream! With time literally running out all around her, does L.A.’s sky-soaring superhero have what it takes to defend the entire universe…or will the secret key to saving existence itself come from the most darkest and most unexplored avenue of all?
Eisner Award nominee Jody Houser (FAITH) is joined by Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR) to bring Valiant’s spectacular standalone event to an unfathomable finale…and when the clock reaches zero, no amount of time travel can ever undo the damage done!
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG inspired by the classic console greats, featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, and a rich story driven by exploration of the world. … Battle Chasers: Nightwar is now available on Steam!
THE ARCHIES #2
Writers: Alex Segura & Matt Rosenberg
Artist: Joe Eisma
NEW ONGOING SERIES! The Archies hit the road — but tour isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! Can they still make some great music? Or will they go broke and make a U-turn for home?
