The Omega Men Get A (Literal) King’s Ransom In ‘Omega Men’ #5 [Preview]


If you haven't been keeping up with Tom King and Barnaby Bagenda's Omega Men, well, you need to get on that because it's easily one of DC's most compelling comics. It's a space opera with a political twist, a story about cultures trying to conquer each other and an insurgency that's trying to resist a far-reaching government and a compelling character piece about manipulation and duty that still has time for wry jokes and fight scenes involving a giant tiger-man named Tigorr. It's got a lot going for it is what I'm saying.

Anyway, the story so far has found the Omega Men kidnapping both Kyle Rayner (after faking his death) and a space princess who turned out to be in on the whole thing, and now, as the series closes in on its forecast halfway point, they're set to ransom her back to her father. The trick is, it might all be a plot to get at the Space Pontifex. If that sounds rad, and it should, check out the pages below!

‘Sabrina’s Haywire Hexes’ Shows The Dire, Horrifying Consequence Of Witchcraft: Slapstick Comedy [Preview]



Sabrina the Teenage Witch has been having a rough couple of years. These days, her most pressing concerns revolve around things like inadvertently causing a zombie apocalypse that resulted in the complete destruction of Riverdale, and, just across the border in another parallel universe, trying to avoid being sacrificed to Lovecraftian horrors and get Harvey Kinkle to notice her. But...

Piece Together New York’s Stories in Esposito and Von Gorman’s ‘Pawn Shop’ [Preview]


City stories are part of the tradition of comics; the comics page offers unique opportunities to explore both the grids and blocks of the cityscape and the separate but intersecting lives of its inhabitants. From fictional metropolises like Terminal City, Astro City, Sin City and Francois Schuiten's Obscure Cities, to visions of real cities like Jason Lutes' Berlin, Seth Fisher's Tokyo, Eddie Campbell's London, Juanjo Guarnido's Paris, or Will Eisner's New York; comics thrive in cities.

In fact, comics have a particular affinity for New York, where so many comics are made. Z2 Comics is adding another New York story to the library this fall with Pawn Shop, a tale of four lives criss-crossing at a Manhattan pawn shop. Writer Joey Esposito and artist Sean Von Gorman will pull at the threads that link New Yorkers together, with Von Gorman providing watercolors over his digital art. Check out a preview below:

Exclusive: Feel the Heat in Candelaria and Slominski’s ‘Ashes’ [Preview]


Up-and-coming publisher Z2 Comics is hoping to set itself apart with a slate of truly intriguing titles in the coming year, including Ian McGinty's weirdly wonderful Welcome to Showside, and books from standout talents like Paul Pope, Dean Haspiel, and the late Harvey Pekar. The publisher also hopes to make names of some of its emerging talents, including Mario Candelaria and Karl Slominski, the creators behind Ashes: A Firefighter's Tale.

Ashes is an intense tale focusing on a New York City firefighter named Matt who has to find his way back from a personal trauma. As our exclusive preview shows, Slominski brings a striking visual style to the story that captures the energy and claustrophobia of firefighters in action, matching it with a dramatic emotional charge.

MAD Magazine 536 feat

We're now several weeks in to the new school year, which means disillusioned and exhausted teachers may have started calling in sick to work already, and it's time for the substitutes to step up.

Everyone’s Going To Die In ‘Book Of Death: The Fall Of Harbinger’ But On The Bright Side, There Are Robots [Preview]


With a title like Book of Death, I don't think anyone really expected Valiant's big crossover to be a cheerful affair, but jeez, things are starting to get pretty grim for the future of the Valiant Universe. Like, really grim. Like everyone on Earth is going to die from the psychic impact of the most powerful superhuman who ever lived returning to the planet from a journey out into space where he transcended his physical form.

But on the upside, there's a robot named for the legendary soul musician and composer of the Super Fly soundtrack Curtis Mayfield, so hey, at least we've got that going for us. For the rest of the bad news though, read on for a preview!

Has Love Found Its Limit in Colinet and Charretier’s ‘Infinite Loop’ #6? [Preview]


A time-traveler whose job is to fix anomalies finds an anomaly that she falls in love with. That's the elegant high concept behind Pierrick Colinet and Elsa Charretier's The Infinite Loop, a stunningly beautiful and mind-bending love story about two women whose romance has more than the usual sorts of hurdles to overcome.

If you haven't been following the series, this preview of the final issue won't give too much away. Our time-tossed lovers face the sort of choices you expect to find in a final act -- be together or make a sacrifice. But these pages will also show you why you really should have been reading the series from the start, because Elsa Charretier's art and colors are breathtakingly lovely.

Jem Meets ‘Fury Road’ In ‘Jem And The Holograms Outrageous Annual’ [Preview]

Jem and the Holograms Outrageous Annual, IDW

After only six issues, the cast of Jem and the Holograms has already had to deal with discovering a secret sentient supercomputer, creating an entire alternate persona for their stage-frightened lead singer, a battle of the bands, a massive food fight, three first dates, and --- in typical Jem fashion --- at least one attempted murder. That's a lot to deal with even without the whole thing where they're, you know, a band that's also trying to raise money for orphans. With a schedule like that, they're going to need some downtime.

And that's exactly what's on the schedule for next week's Jem and the Holograms Outrageous Annual, which finds the group having a nice relaxing evening at home with a bunch of movies. But what with this being comics and all, they find themselves thrown into their own versions of the stories that they're watching, including Aja's starring role in a segment that looks an awful lot like Mad Max: Fury Road. Check out a preview of two of the four stories below!

Archie Brings Back The Teen Scene Investigators For A Digital Collection Of ‘Archie’s Mysteries’ [Preview]


Every time Archie announces a digital collection, I get more excited than I think anyone could reasonably expect, mainly because we've finally gotten to the point where they are unearthing some of the weirdest parts of the company's past and making them as easy to access as possible. Sure, those first few were just stories about Veronica's dad or whatever, but last time we got Jughead's Time Police and now? Now it's time for Archie's Mysteries, featuring the Teen Scene Investigators.

It was only a few days ago that we brought you the news that Chris Burnham would be providing an extremely violent cover for 2000 AD prog 1950, but there was another piece of the story that you might have missed on account of being distracted by Judge Dredd blowing people's fingers off right there on the cover. Every now and then, 2000 AD will take the opportunity to give readers a new jumping on point, and when #1950 hits shelves on September 30, it will have four brand-new stories. Check out a preview.
