We’ve picked out the titles published by British publishers in bold below, or titles with a British connection we’re aware of.

Releases include 2000AD Issue 1895 (also on sale in newsagents), featuring the brilliant Judge Dredd strip “Cascade”, featuring Dredd clone, former Cadet and Space Corps trooper, Dolman, and new episodes of “Aquila: Carnifex”, “Brass Sun: Floating Worlds”, “Black Shuck” and “Jaegir: Circe”. There’s a full preview here on the 2000AD tumblr.

Dark Horse Presents #1 2014 features Geof Darrow and Frank Miller’s “Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot” in this new volume of the award-winning, long-running anthology, but also in the 48-page tome of awesome comics is Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse’s “Resident Alien” and Brendan McCarthy’s “Dream Gang”, along with Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Andy Kuhn’s “Wrestling with Demons”, Damon Gentry and Aaron Conley’s “Sabertooth Swordsman”, and David Mack’s “Kabuki”.

Releases also include the first issue of The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, the first project from their groundbreaking five-year deal at Image, the co-creators promising an epic crime story unlike anything they’ve done before.

Hollywood – 1948. A noir film stuck in endless reshoots. A writer plagued with nightmares from the war and a dangerous secret. An up-and-coming starlet’s suspicious death. And a maniacal Studio Mogul and his Security Chief who will do anything to keep the cameras rolling before the Post-War boom days come crashing down. THE FADE OUT is the most ambitious series yet from the award-winning Noir Masters.

This 40-page first issue features more story pages, as well as exclusive back pages articles that are only in these single issues.

The release list below features mainly US titles from Marvel Comics, DC Comics, IDW, Image Comics and other publishers, including Trade Paperbacks. We’re not including merchandise releases in these news items.
