WHERE HIS STORY ENDED…HER STORY BEGINS! This sense-obliterating, earth-shaking, imagination-quaking adventure that spans generations comes to you from MATT FRACTION (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye) and TERRY & RACHEL DODSON (X-Men/Fantastic Four, RED ONE)!!!

CHRISTOPHER: This seems like an interesting new series that is coming out. Claire seems like a cool character and I enjoy her look on the cover.

Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The Sangeryes split into teams to tackle various threats. Meanwhile, Harlem is under siege, and Ardo’s plans are slowly being revealed. But what role will Sylvester play, and how much of himself is he willing to sacrifice?

INGRID: If you haven’t been reading this incredible book, now more than ever is the time to start. The fear that leads to racism literally turns people into monsters, and now so does the deep grief of those affected by it. In the middle of it all is the remarkable Sangerye family, trying to push back the evil and save as many lives as possible. It’s an amazing book, and you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

KILADELPHIA #6
Writer: Rodney Barnes
Artist: Jason Shawn Alexander
Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.
Cover Price: #3.99
SOLICITATION: “SINS OF THE FATHER,” Part Six
In this pulse-pounding conclusion to the first story arc, newly reborn vampire, Detective James Sangster Sr., fights back his very nature and arms himself and his allies to take on the forces of darkness that have turned Philadelphia into a hell hole. But will they be a match for sinister leader John Adams and his blood-thirsty legion? Or will the vampires manage to turn the tables on our heroes?

INGRID: A brilliant book, which has inadvertently become even more timely, finishes out its first arc this week. A true horror story, with Philadelphia at the heart of a new battle for American democracy, this time at the hand of vampires, it has been tense and dramatic – and rich with family feeling. This one is not to be missed.

LOIS LANE #11

SOLICITATION: The braid begins to unravel as Lois, Renee Montoya, Midnight, and Sister Clarice all come together. Now the intrepid reporter must face the reporter’s dilemma-what truths to tell, and at what cost?

STEPHEN: Lois Lane has turned into one of the more interesting books I’m reading right now. Whenever you can add more of the DCU into a Superman title to make the world feel bigger and more lived in, the better the story becomes. And with Greg Rucka and Mike Perkins behind the wheel, you know this story is about to swerve into something different.


ROBOT OVERLORD: The eyes believe themselves; the ears believe other people.
