The Remnants Of Tesladyne Get Ahead With ‘Atomic Robo And The Ring of Fire’ #1 [Preview]

Robo00

If you're the kind of person who loves robots, explosions, and robots who are prone to both causing explosions and being exploded themselves, well, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that there's a new Atomic Robo series kicking off next week from IDW, and in the eight years that book has been coming out, I don't think there's been a single story where something didn't explode, usually at the hands of the title robot.

The bad news? Robo himself is currently dead, and has been reduced to a non-functioning and disembodied head while the remnants of his support team from Tesladyne are scattered across the world trying to avoid being murdered by sinister government forces. That said, this is only really bad news for the characters --- for the reader, that's a recipe for a pretty good time. Check out a preview from Brian Clevenger and Scott Wegener below!

The Transformed Man, Act 21: Onyx Interface

The Transformed Man, Act 21: Onyx Interface

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, everyone hates Prowl.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For September 2 2015

BestComics_0903

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, it's time travel, parallel universes, and we're perilously close to being all caught up with More Than Meets The Eye!

Leonardo Launches Mondo’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Figure Line

Mondo
Mondo

If you've been eagerly awaiting the day when Mondo's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sixth-scale figures would go on sale, the stars have almost aligned. Revealed in full for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con this past July, Mondo's TMNT figures were the talk of the convention, and rightfully so. Though we've seen numerous incarnations of the fab four over the years, even in their retro comic book form, Mondo's versions presented the classic three-fingered ninjas in a size we hadn't seen before. Coupled with the incredible accessories that hit all the right nostalgia notes, Mondo's first real foray into this format had fans hyped and crowded around their display all four days of the show.

The line will officially kick off this week with Leonardo, the selfless leader of the pack. Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael will follow, with each coming about a month after the previous release. Leo will come with his signature dual katanas, as well as scabbards for both on his back. Mondo's including heads with red bandannas for all the Turtles to emulate the appearances of the Turtles way back when during the Mirage days, but will also include heads with more familiar colored bandannas, too. And the Turtles wouldn't be who they are without first having been babies, so Leo will come with a little non-mutated turtle version of himself.

The Cartoon Turtles Return In ‘TMNT: Amazing Adventures’ #1, And They’re Bringing James Kochalka With Them [Exclusive Preview]

TMNT: New Animated Adventures #1, IDW

You know things are pretty bad for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when Shredder, an evil ninja who is literally dressed in knives, is the least of their worries.

That's the situation in the first issue of IDW's TMNT: Amazing Adventures, in which Cluckingsworth, a super-intelligent mutant chicken from their time at April O'Neil's family farm, has returned to New York City and is apparently bringing a whole lot of trouble with her. But while that is certainly a pressing concern, Landry Q. Walker, Chad Thomas and Heather Breckel's lead story isn't the only thing worth noting, because this is also the issue where we finally get to see the Ninja Turtles in a story by James Kochalka.

On The Cheap: Pay What You Want For Rogers And DiVito’s ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ In This Week’s Humble Bundle

Dungeons & Dragons, IDW

This week's Humble Book Bundle is built around Dungeons & Dragons comics, and while there are a whole lot of comics in there, I'm going to go ahead and guess that whether or not you're going to enjoy a lot of them depends entirely on how you feel about Drizzt Do'Urden, most noble of the dark elves of Menzoberranzan and the twin scimitars that he uses to battle the evil of Faerûn alongside his astral panther Guenhwyvar. If that's your jam, well, you don't need any more convincing to get over there and check it out.

If it's not, well, you still need to get over there and check it out, because you can pay whatever the heck you want for John Rogers and Andrea DiVito's 2011 run on Dungeons & Dragons, one of the best fantasy comics of all time.
