Ichabod & Abbie Fight A Tree In ‘Sleepy Hollow’ #2 (It’s More Exciting Than It Sounds)

SH00

I love Sleepy Hollow, and while my favorite thing about the show is definitely the character moments between Ichabod and Abbie -- especially Ichabod's continuing frustration with life in the 21st century -- I really love all the bad guys, too. Shape-shifting succubi, zombie cops, actual satans and, of course, a headless horseman who walks around blowing things away with an M-16 in each hand like he's holding the bridge at Gjallerbru. They're great, and this week in Boom's Sleepy Hollow comic, Marguerite Bennett and Jorge Coelho are adding a new and terrifying villain to the roster as Ichabod and Abbie fight... a tree.

Lumberjanes Get Astronomically Adventurous In First Arc Finale [Preview]

LJ00

Some of you may remember that Lumberjanes, easily one of our favorite comics of the year, was originally slated to be an eight-issue miniseries. Fortunately for everyone, it was upgraded to an ongoing by virtue of being completely rad, but next week marks the release of the eighth issue of the series from Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis and Brooke Allen, closing out the first arc of friendship, merit badges, and creepy, creepy woods. And as you might expect for the start of a final chapter, things are not looking so good for our heroines.

Miao Yin Finally Gets The Chance To Kick Ass In ‘Big Trouble In Little China’ #6 [Preview]

BT00

Listen, I love Big Trouble In Little China more than most people love their children, but I think we all have to admit that in the movie, Miao Yin isn't exactly a great character. She spends almost the entire film kidnapped, and while that's to be expected in a movie made in the grand tradition of '80s action where 90% of the focus is on intentionally half-baked tough guy talk from Kurt Russel, but still. I think she speaks somewhere in the neighborhood of zero words in that movie, and that's a shame.

Fortunately, we have comics, and as we all know, comic books fix everything. In this week's BTILC #6, John Carpenter, Eric Powell, Brian Churilla, Lisa Moore and Ed Dukeshire are putting Wang's lady love front and center, kicking off the issue with a scene where she beats the living heck out of a bunch of demons -- who may or may not actually just be kindly merchants.

The Bookworm Renaissance Continues With ‘Batman ’66′ Chapter 47 [Preview]

Tut00

My friends, we are living in a wonderful time. Hot on the heels of Gotham Academy #2, which featured the return of Bookworm as a school librarian, comes Batman '66 Chapter 47, where the world's most sinister bibliophile is once again in the spotlight! And, just as an added bonus, he's also riding around in a giant robot dragon, which I think you will agree makes pretty much everything better.

Okay, admittedly, the main focus of the issue seems to be that King Tut (possibly the greatest of all Batman televillains) is raising an army of the undead with the help of the unstoppable Osiris Virus, but c'mon. It's a giant robot dragon and it's wearing a top hat. Check out what else Jeff Parker and Scott Kowalchuk have in store for the caped crusaders below!

The Bigger Bang: Kirkbride & Gogtzilas Launch Star-Spanning, Volcano-Punching Epic At IDW

BB00

When it comes to a book like The Bigger Bang, there's a lot that you can say that'll make it sound interesting. You could take the route that the official press release from IDW takes and talk about how it's focused on a journey of atonement for an impossibly powerful superhero who finds himself alone in the universe, trying to solve the mystery of his own creation. Or, you can do what the actual opening pages of the book do, and show him punching out volcanoes.

Batman And Robin Face ‘The Man Who Quit Being Human’ In ‘Batmanga’ Chapter 19

Batmanga00

As much as I love the stories of Lord Death Man and Professor Gorilla, the one thing I was really excited about when DC announced that they'd be bringing Jiro Kuwata's Batmanga back into print after over 40 years was that they'd be getting to stories that I hadn't read. The collection that Chip Kidd put together a few years ago was, after all, just the tip of the iceberg, and it was the stuff that hadn't been reprinted that was going to get really weird -- and if you've been keeping up, you've seen just how strange things can be.

In next week's episode, the current story comes to its climax with "The Man Who Quit Being Human," which, given that the previous story has featured the aforementioned Professor Gorilla, has been pretty surprisingly dark. Batman and Robin are facing down against a terrifying foe who wants to eliminate his mutated genes from his daughter, and it's pretty incredible. Check out a preview below!

Boom! Announces Madeleine Flores’ ‘Help Us Great Warrior’ Mini About Epic Quests, Butts

GW00

I like sword-and-sorcery fantasy adventure as much as the next person who spent a significant portion of their life reading about dark elves with lavender eyes and twin scimitars, but let's be honest here: It is not a genre that is without problems. As engaging as those stories can be, there just isn't as much focus on characters who are lazy and super into butts.

Fortunately, Madéleine Flores has brought the world Help Us Great Warrior, a story about the small, somewhat lumpy Great Warrior, who embodies those traits while also venturing on epic quests to save the world. Now, it's coming to Boom! Box in the form of an eight-issue limited series, set for release in February.

Princess Bubblegum Takes A Road Trip In Leth & Sterling’s ‘Adventure Time: Bitter Sweets’ [Preview]

Untitled-1

On sale next week from the kaboom! imprint of Boom! Studios, Adventure Time: Bitter Sweets is the fourth in a series of original graphic novels starring the characters from Pendleton Ward's enduringly popular and influential animated series. The first three, printed in black and white, explored scenarios and relationships like Finn and Princess Flame's budding romance; a coming-of-age journey with some of the series' idiosyncratic princesses; and a teen-type angst opus starring Marceline the Vampire Queen. Courtesy of writer Kate Leth and artist Zachary Sterling, Bitter Sweets is a full-color adventure (obvs) focused squarely on Princess Bubblegum and Peppermint Butler, who is her butler (obvs), as they traverse the lands beyond the Candy Kingdom.
