Heroes (and 1 talking duck) reign supreme this week at the Amazing Comic Shop!
NEW COMIC: THOR #6
WHO IS THOR? That’s the question on everyone’s lips. Most especially Prince Odinson of Asgard. This issue, he starts to narrow down the list of suspects. Meanwhile, tensions continue to flare between the All-Mother and All-Father, Malekith forges his most dangerous pact yet, and Thor prepares to face her greatest challenge!
TRADE PICK: HAWKEYE VS DEADPOOL TP
Once upon a time, champions emerged to fight the evil plaguing humanity. They fought for all that was good in the world. They were kind, generous and self-sacrificing. They were heroes. These are not those heroes. What do Hawkeye and Deadpool have in common? It’s Halloween in Brooklyn, and a S.H.I.E.L.D. espionage mystery has both heroes racing the clock. But things aren’t what they seem! Why are the bad guys dressed as good guys? And what does the Black Cat have to do with it? Marvel’s most beloved (and simultaneously annoying) duo is on the case! But with villains masquerading as heroes, who can Deadpool and Hawkeye trust? And no, it’s not one another. As the baddest brawlers in Brooklyn tear up the town, will Deadpool and Hawkeye kill each other before they figure it out
NEW COMIC: ANT-MAN #3
Ant-Man faces off against his deadliest arch-enemy — the mercenary known as TASKMASTER! Can we really call him an “arch-enemy”? Well, they’ve actually fought a bunch of times (look it up). And they definitely don’t like each other — that’s what “arch” means, right? There’s a mystery villain pulling the strings! He’s the one covered in heavy shadow. Mystery villains never have good lighting. Need to get to an Ikea or something.
TRADE PICK: ROVER RED CHARLIE TP
GARTH ENNIS – the creator of Preacher and Crossed – delivers a story like no other, as an unlikely band of canines set out to survive in a world gone horribly mad. When a worldwide plague wipes out humanity, what happens to man’s best friend? Charlie was a helper dog and he was good at it. Now he and his friends Rover and Red must escape the bloody city and find their way in this strange master-less new world. Ennis applies his incredible talent for shockingly original tales and spot-on dialogue in this fully painted story will change the way you look at pets and takes you on a spiritual journey of rediscovery through the eyes of these canine best friends.
NEW COMIC: SPAWN RESSURECTION #1
The return of Al Simmons, and the start of a brand new era for SPAWN! No one quite knows where Al’s been all this time, but it’s clear he’s come back a changed man. Wiser, stronger, and with the memories from an experience that’s he’s still struggling to understand. Tucked away in a crime-ridden corner of New York City, he’s beginning to forge new alliances, preparing defenses, and testing out his newly acquired powers… because there’s a battle coming, and it’s something that makes the Heaven/Hell thing seem like a petty squabble. So just who did Al piss off so badly while he was away?
Crash-landing on a strange new planet, Supergirl must come to grips with Krypton’s destruction and learn about her own past. But an ingenious foe wants the same information – and will do anything to get it.
HOWARD THE DUCK #1
