British Comic Shop Comic Releases (3rd September 2014) – Carpe Diem, The Void and more

Elephantmen #59

 

Here’s a list of comics – both US and UK releases – on sale in specialist UK comic shops from tomorrow, Wednesday 3rd September 2014, courtesy of First Age Comics, Lancaster. 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 1897 (also on sale in newsagents) and #59 of Elephantmen from Image Comics, written by Richard Starkings with art from 2000AD regular Boo Cook. If you haven’t read this stunning comic before, then why not catch up with the Elephantmen Mammoth Volume Book One, released back in July.

 

CARPE DIEm: I hate Mondays

 

 

Titan Comics have a slew of titles out this week including Sally of the Wasteland #2 and the Carpe DIEm: I Hate Mondays graphic novel. Meet the world’s seven greatest, colour-coded secret agents (one for each day of the week, though everybody hates Mondays)!

When danger rears its ugly head, it’s up to this motely band of super spies to issue the bloody-knuckled makeover. Whether they’re dishing out justice to satanic chefs, kicking giant kaiju butt, or saving the world from killer clowns, it’s all just other day’s work for these half-baked hired heroes.

 

VOID by Herik Hanna and Sean Phillips

 

Definitely worth checking out is The Void we enthused about previously, a thriller from Herik Hanna, the writer of Bad Ass and Sean Phillips, the artist of Fatale and the awesome new series Fade to Black. Goliath 01, a prison ship, drifts listlessly through. The ship’s commander, Colonel Mercer, has massacred everyone on board – inmates and crew alike, except one. John, the lone survivor, cowers in the bowels of the carrier, desperate to escape the ship. But the howling void of space makes the best prison of all…

Forbidden Planet has an exclusive mini-print edition of this Graphic Novel on offer – more details here

 

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

 

And of course there’s the much-anticipated collection of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, written by Michael Mendheim, Mike Kennedy and Sean Jaffe with stunning art from Simon Bisley. Raised by the ancient Order of Solomon, Adam Cahill is one of a rare handful of highly trained warriors bound by bloodline to guard the Seven Holy Seals that contain the End of Days.

But ageless forces have conspired towards a prophetic event foretold by numerous cultures and multiple religions… and when that cryptic date arrives, they strike against the order without mercy!

The collection includes all-new bonus features including covers, posters and concept art by the Eisner Award-winning Bisley himself.

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.

Don’t forget The Beano is also out today in newsagents!
