Jenny Finn #1
Mike Mignola and Troy Nixey’s acclaimed horror mini-series returns after years out of print with all new colors by Dave Stewart in Jenny Finn #1 (SEP170035). Dark Horse Comics has resurrected this walking plague and it’s just as horrific as ever as Jenny prowls the docks of Victorian London looking for her next victim. With the duel terrors of a tentacle growing epidemic and a serial killer attacking the women of the night, no one is safe. Beware Jenny Finn, cross her and you may be next!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #76
The next chapter of the Turtles epic is beginning as original co-creator Kevin Eastman teams up with Tom Waltz and Damian Couceiro in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #76 (SEP170504) as “Invasion of the Triceratons” begins. A small force of the extra-dimensional Triceratons have arrived in the very heart of New York City, armed and ready to fight! The Turtles must find out the intentions of this cadre of alien dinosaurs before all hell breaks loose and an inter-dimensional war begins. Will the Earth welcome these heavily armed creatures or is it mutually assured destruction?
Dark Fang #1
An all new type of horror is coming to Image Comics as Mile Gunter and Kelsey Shannon kick off their series in Dark Fang #1 (SEP170613). Valla was a fisherwoman long ago but now in death she is an aquatic vampire residing peacefully on the bottom of the ocean; but something is wrong and a mysterious dark plague has befallen her underwater paradise. Now Valla must rise to the surface and confront those who poison her food supply, and if she wants the blood she needs to survive it’s up to her to take on the fossil fuel industries who threaten to destroy the planet.
Doctor Strange #381
There’s a new Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel Comics as Donny Cates and Gabriel Hernandez Walta begin their Marvel Legacy run in Doctor Strange #381 (SEP170847). Steven Strange has disappeared and in his stead a new Sorcerer Supreme has risen as Loki takes on the mantle. He’s got the clock, the spell, and even Zelma Staton as his faithful assistant, so what could possibly go wrong? Let’s hope the god of mischief doesn’t let all this unlimited magical power go to his head.
Brilliant Trash #1
Tim Seeley brings his latest series to life at Aftershock Comics with help from artist Priscilla Petraites in Brilliant Trash #1 (SEP171085). A science fiction superhuman epic, Brilliant Trash exists in a world where a “click-bait” writing journalist holds the key to a conspiracy that holds the power to turn humans into gods – but at the price of shortening their lives. As she works to expose this reality changing conspiracy she’ll have to force anyone she can to believe her, because in a world where news is tailored to every viewpoint she’s doomed to be drowned out.
