Judge Dredd Hits The Beach And Battles Giant Shrimp In ‘Mega City Two’ #3 [Preview]

Judge Dredd: Mega City Two #3, IDW

Judge Dredd: Mega City Two, in which Douglas Wolk and Ulises Farinas are chronicling the stone-faced lawman's trip out west to the City of Courts that used to be Los Angeles, has already been one of the most fun comics on the stands in just the first issue. Next week's installment, however, takes it to an entirely new, entirely ridiculous level, as Dredd hits the beach for "Beach Blanket Justice" and ends up encountering a giant mutated atomic shrimp that's going to seriously damage tourism. And that's just on page two -- and it's the least of Dredd's problems with post-nuclear California.

And if that wasn't enough to get you excited? There is a pretty amazing joke about LA-based plagiarist Shia LaBeouf some guy in here. Check out a preview and watch for it below!

Junior Braves of the Apocalypse Preview
Oni Press

When it comes to the pre-apocalypse/apocalypse/post-apocalypse, we've seen our share of unlikely scenarios play out in comics, video games and film. One thing we haven't seen yet? Scouting troops contending with man-eating mutants. Leave it to Writers Michael Tanner and Greg Smith, and artist Zach Lehner to hash out how the conflict might play out in Junior Braves of the Apocalypse at Oni Press. The only hitch? You're going to have to wait until early 2015. But don't worry, we've got an early look at pages to help you pass the time.

So Mike Del Mundo’s ‘Elektra’ #1 Looks Pretty Damn… Pretty! [Art]

Untitled-1

 

Listeners of the ComicsAlliance Podcast will know that the other staffers and I have been particularly impressed with the variety of visuals currently offered by Marvel Comics. In the best way possible, it's become practically impossible to describe "Marvel house style," with the publisher staffing books with artists as talented and diverse as David Aja, Adrian Alphona, Michael Allred, Esad Ribic, Chris Samnee, Declan Shalvey, Phil Noto, Mitch Gerads and many more besides. Many of these fly far afield of what you might consider traditional superhero art, and that's a fact that's made so many "All-New" books so fun to read.

Given this recent history it was not surprising to learn that Mike Del Mundo was to draw a new Elektra series written by Haden Blackman, whose résumé includes Batwoman with JH Williams III, making this new series about the beautiful and deadly assassin one of the most appropriately staffed of Marvel's current line.

Check your longbox for space because this September Oni Press is going to bring some competition for your back issues of Marvel Comics spinoff of a certain superhero movie starring Robert Townsend with Meteor Men by writer Jeff Parker and artist Sandy Jarrell. Known for their collaboration on DC Comics' Batman '66, the duo have something quite a bit different in mind in this original graphic novel... namely the potential obliteration of the human species by strange visitors from another world (who don't wear red shorts).

Pro Wrestler Christopher Daniels To Write An ‘Aw Yeah Comics!’ Story About Pro Wrestler Christopher Daniels (And Tag-Team Partner Frankie Kazarian)

Christopher Daniels And Kazarian Wrestling Aw Yeah Comics!

There are, perhaps unsurprisingly, a lot of comic book fans among the roster of professional wrestlers, but very few have worn their fandom on their sleeve as much as "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels. And I mean that literally -- there was a stretch there where he was only appearing on television in Marvel-themed shirts, and he once flipped through an issue of Amazing Spider-Man while keeping his opponent locked in the dreaded Figure-Four.

Now, Daniels is taking the next step. As revealed on the Let's Talk Comics podcast, he's not only appearing in a comic alongside his tag team partner Frankie Kazarian, but he's writing it, too: Christopher Daniels And Kazarian Wrestling Aw Yeah Comics! is on its way soon, debuting on Comixology with a script by Daniels and art by former Tiny Titans artist Art Baltazar.

Archie Announces New ‘Mega Man X’ Crossover, The Sensational Comics Event Of 20XX [Preview]

Mega Man: Dawn of X Promo Art

Here at ComicsAlliance, we're big fans of Archie's Mega Man series, but ever since the series started, we've been wondering when -- not if, but when -- they were going to get around to introducing Mega Man's far future counterpart, Mega Man X. It's been hinted at in the series, both in the main storyline and in backup stories, but now, we know for sure that the two video game heroes of different eras are going to meet.

In this summer's Mega Man #37, the two robot-fightin' robots are going to team up in "Dawn of X," a four-part crossover where 8-bit and 16-bit collide, courtesy of Ian Flynn, Jamal Peppers, Gary Martin, John Workman and Matt Herms. Check out some early art from the story below!

Superman Traverses Time and Space in ‘Strange Visitor’ Conclusion [Preview]

Untitled-1

On sale this Sunday from DC Comics, Adventures of Superman #48 concludes the three-part "Strange Visitor" digital-first storyline. Written by Joe Keatinge, the story is one of the warmest and most mind-bendingly meta Superman tales released in recent memory, seeing the Last Son of Krypton in eras ranging from the earliest years of his creation to billions of years in the future as he -- to put it as simply as possible -- tries to rescue the occupants of a rocket ship marooned in a dimension more treacherous than any Superman's visited before, one that he will have to prepare his whole life to traverse.

Collaborating with artists including Ming Doyle, Brent Schoonover, Dave Williams, Tula Lotay and Jason Shawn Alexander, "Strange Visitor" is an ornate tribute to the Man of Steel on his 75th birthday, and one that's as dramatic as it is sentimental. Also Kamandi is in it.
