Hello everyone! Lots of new series this week and we’ll have three of them for $1.99 each! Those of you that are on that Wicked and Divine train, should check out Phonogram this week as it’s by the same creative team! The Fade Out readers may have noticed and absent #8 last week; it was running a little late for us, but we’ll have them this Wednesday. And speaking of late books, Secret Wars #5 drops this week as well.

On the trade side, we have a highly regarded,long out of print, run on Black Panther by Paul Priest that I’ve been wanting to check out AND, the third volume of Hip Hop Family Tree! Which reminds me, if you’re into hip hop and into comics, and you haven’t already seen the variants Marvel has planned for All New All Different, you should check it out!

Finally, the Culver City store will be hosting Jack Foster this Wednesday morning. Check out a preview here of his book, Gun. See you at the bottom…

King #1

(W) Joshua Hale Fialkov (A) Bernard Chang (CA) Bernard Chang, Marcelo Maiolo

From critically acclaimed writer Joshua Hale Fialkov (I, Vampire) and superstar artists Bernard Chang and Marcelo Maiolo (Green Lantern Corps) comes a post-apocalyptic Conan the Barbarian as directed by Sam Raimi circa Army of Darkness. King just wants what anybody wants: not to get fired, eaten, or forced to mate with a cheetah lady. As Earth’s sole human survivor after the apocalypse, life among Los Angeles’ strange, new populace ain’t easy. Working for the LA Department of Reclamation, King gets a lot of crappy jobs going on quests and searching for artifacts from the “old world,” which can range from the mythical (Excalibur!) to the absurd (an iPod Shuffle). The work commute can be a real pain in the asphalt, the 405 freeway is filled with mutants, monsters, mayhem and tentacled Elder Gods. And that’s all before you hit the horrors of the San Fernando Valley. As the world’s freakish inhabitants battle for supremacy, King searches for the “seed of life,” which may give Earth the second chance it probably doesn’t even deserve.
