On The Rack – May 26 2014May 28, 2014
A lot of comics are being optioned into movie these days which is great to see. It always leads some people to believe that the medium of comics is dead but even if you are going to see a comic book movie in the near future, reading the comic will give you a richer experience. So if you are going to pick up the Days of Future Past comics after seeing the film, don’t forget to check On the Rack to see what’s new this week.
Clive Barker’s Nightbreed #1
Master of horror Clive Barker puts his skills to work on this ongoing title. If you like anything by Clive Barker then I would recommend picking this up.
“The Nightbreed is a secret society of monsters and misfits that hide away from humans, but have been a part of this world since time immemorial. This series will explore both the past and the present of this clandestine tribe, unleashing new secrets and horrors as they fight to coexist with mankind.”
Usually I like to tell you of promising new titles that are just launching but in this case the Nightwing series is coming to an end with this issue. It may be the end of Nightwing himself.
“The Bat Family is forced to face the brutal aftermath of FOREVER EVIL, but after everything they’ve been through, can they stand together?”
Secret Origins #2
“Batman headlines the second big issue of SECRET ORIGINS, which also features The New 52 origins of Aquaman and Starfire!”
Monster & Madman #1 (of 3)
Here is a quick 3 issue mini-series with a pretty cool premise. If you like the new television show Penny Dreadful , you might want to check this out.
“Contrary to popular belief, the story of the Frankenstein Monster did not end at the end of Mary Shelley’s famous novel. Now, Steve Niles and Damien Worm have uncovered the shocking fact of the time the Monster met … Jack the Ripper. Read if you dare!”
Star Trek #33
If you are a fan of the new Star Trek films, this comic follows the story after the events of Into Darkness.
After the events of “Star Trek Into Darkness”, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise have embarked on their Five Year Mission into uncharted space… only to encounter a deadly new alien species unlike anything the Federation has met before! Don’t miss this all-new adventure overseen by STAR TREK writer/producer Roberto Orci!
“Ten years after they landed. All over the world. And they did nothing, standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if there were no-one here and nothing under foot. Ten years since we learned that there is intelligent life in the universe, but that they did not recognize us as intelligent or alive.”
Guardians of the Galaxy #15
With the imminent launch of movie, people not familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy should pick up some issues of the comic.
“With the entire galaxy gunning for the Guardians and Peter Quill missing, its time to bring in a little help. Captain Marvel JOINS the Guardians of the Galaxy! But where in the universe is Star-Lord? And what does his disappearance mean for the safety of earth?!”
Thanos Annual #1
Jim Starlin returns to Thanos, and he’s brought INFINITY GAUNTLET artist Ron Lim with him! Thanos must face Mephisto, his future self, the Avengers and more! Learn how a devastating defeat in Thanos’ past set events into motion that will redefine the Marvel Universe in the near future! A prequel to the upcoming THANOS: THE INFINITY REVELATION original graphic novel!
A lot of people don’t like The Thunderbolts because of the ever changing team members but if you have ever wanted to see Punisher, Deadpool and Ghost Rider on the same team then you can’t miss with this comic.
“An ancient cosmic power has corrupted a former ally… Can the Thunderbolts take him down before their time’s all up? Adventure in the mysterious jungle-as only Marvel can do!”
Well, that wraps up another week of killer comics. If we are missing anything you’d like us to update about, please drop us a line in the comments section and we’ll make sure to add it to the list.
