STAFF PICKS FOR 7/1/15!!!

    With July’s Arrival, the Secret Wars Continue !!

 

AUSTIN:

 NEW COMIC : 18 DAYS #1

From legendary creator Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Batman & Robin, The Invisibles), comes the first chapter in his newest creation. 18 Days is the story of three generations of super-warriors, meeting for the final battle of their age, a climactic war that concludes the age of the gods and begins the age of man. “This is not a Lord of the Rings or a Star Wars where the good guys win because they are right. The good guys in 18 Days are forced to cheat and lie and break rules to win. Although it has fantastic, mythic trappings, this is a very modern story of realpolitik and the failure of ideals in the face of harsh truth.” – Grant Morrison. Main covers by Jeevan Kang and Mukesh Singh.

TRADE PICK: ANT-MAN: SECOND-CHANCE MAN   

Scott Lang has never exactly been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best Ant-Man! And the last guy invented Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s saying something. But when Iron Man calls with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Scott’s going to get a second chance to be the hero he’s always dreamed of becoming! Then, Scott faces off against his old foe the Taskmaster, but who is the mystery villain pulling the strings? And when Ant-Man needs to pull off an impossible break-in, he assembles a new gang…of criminals! Because that’s what heroes do, I guess. Sure, he’s been to prison, had a messy divorce and was…um, dead for a while there. But this time is different! This time nothing is gonna stop the astonishing Ant-Man! Collecting ANT-MAN #1-5.
