New Comics On Sale This Week (Wednesday 11th January)

2000AD Prog 1963

This week’s 2000AD – Prog 1963 – offers a smashing start to 2016 with an intriguing opener to the new “Judge Dredd” tale, “Ghosts”, with Dredd investigating the disappearance of children supposedly selected for Judge training. Mark Sexton‘s art is great and the story by Michael Carroll draws you straight into the mystery.

The rest of the Prog is no slouch, either – Clint Langley‘s art on the latest of episode of Ro-Busters is knock out and John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra offering a smashing Strontium Dog story, “Repo Men”, with Johnny Alpha and company going undercover on an alien world. Cracking!

Batman 66 Meest the Man from U.N.C.L.E. #2

Also on the US side, I picked up Batman 66 Meets The Man from U.N.C.L.E. #1 recently and enjoyed it, and #2 is out this week from writer Jeff Parker with art by David Hahn and Karl Kesel, with a cover by Michael Allred. This time out, Batman has a dangerous assignment for Batgirl: pose as a villain to infiltrate T.H.R.U.S.H., the secret organization bent on world conquest that’s enlisting evildoers! Meanwhile, Solo and Kuryakin take on the identities of two Bat-foes to find their own way into the organization. They’re all after the same vital piece of information: who is the mysterious new head of T.H.R.U.S.H.?

Commando No 4879 – Banquet Of BloodUK Comics – Newsagents Spotlight

Doctor Who Adventures Issue 10 - CoverAs usual, don’t forget that despite some British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour, there are still comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including The Beano, Commando (latest release intel here), Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s superhero titles, Titan Comics superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who MagazineDoctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who Comic (collecting their strips from the US format titles) MegaTales from the TARDISTOXIC and many others.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is now on sale in many (but not all) Waitrose supermarkets and – at last, selected high street WH Smiths stores – and some comic shops (stockist list here) as well as available on subscription.

Dirk Gently Trade Paperback Interconnectedness Of All Kings
Writer: Chris Ryall Artist: Tony Akins, Ilias Kyriazis Cover Artist: Tony Akins

After writing all the many and conflicting versions of the legendary Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, beloved author Douglas Adams created Dirk Gently: a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza.

In his first-ever comic series, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizaarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, golden cell phones, and copycat killers. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.

Publisher: VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC
Writer: Barry Windsor-Smith & Various Artist: Barry Windsor-Smith, Mike Vosburg Cover Artist: Barry Windsor-Smith

Following in the footsteps of the X-O MANOWAR CLASSIC OMNIBUS VOLUME 1, it’s the complete, oversized omnibus collection of the series Ain’t It Cool News calls “the best buddy team book of all time.”

Obadiah Archer, left for dead as a boy by his corrupt evangelist parents, has spent the last decade honing his innate abilities in a monastery deep in the mountains of Ladakh before emerging now as the world’s greatest hand-to-hand fighter and marksman. His body a temple, his every movement in harmony and his mind perfectly serene… except for the overriding desire to avenge his own murder. Armstrong is a 10,000-year-old libertine who may be as strong as a battalion, but abandoned idealism millennia ago. Now he spends his days drinking, carousing and telling tales of outrageous adventures throughout history to anyone who will listen – that is, when he’s not on the run from an ancient cult whose bumbling agents have been hunting him for two thousand years.
But Armstrong counts as the worst day of all his days the one when Archer turned up and decided that they were partners – a team chosen by fate to save the world!

Featuring work from iconic Valiant creators Barry Windsor-Smith (Conan, Weapon X), Jim Shooter (Secret Wars), Bob Layton (Iron Man), Mike Baron (Nexus), and more, the groundbreaking adventures of the original conspiracy-smashing duo are brought together in their entirety for the very first time right here in this massive, oversized volume. Collecting ARCHER & ARMSTRONG (1992) #0-26 and ETERNAL WARRIOR (1992) #25, CHAOS EFFECT: OMEGA along with ARCHER & ARMSTRONG: THE FORMATION OF THE SECT.

War Stories Trade Paperback Volume 3 (Mature Readers)
Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Matt Martin & Various Cover Artist: Matt Martin

This volume of Garth Ennis’ powerful War Stories series features tales ripped from the pages of history itself delivering a horrifying and riveting look at some of the most brutal battles throughout time. This essential tome includes three stories of battle written by Ennis and illustrated by Thomas Aria including:

Castles in the Sky: A horrifying tale of early bomber pilots and their incredibly difficult missions during wartime. Thrust into the sky with a new team of soldiers these brave men learn quickly the horrors of aerial combat over the skies of Germany. With art by Matt Martin and Keith Burns.

Children of Israel: In 1973, the Golan Heights was the home to the most brutal tank warfare in history. As a young nation of Israel faced the imposing forces of the Syrian army, the true mettle of these soldiers would be tested as never before. With art by Tomas Aira.

The Last German Winter: February 1945: as the Soviet war machine crashes into eastern Germany on a tidal wave of carnage and revenge, a mother and her children join the flood of refugees struggling to stay ahead of the invaders. But the realities of battle are dreadful to behold, and what the little family find waiting for them is deadlier than any mythical dragon. Worse still, the strange figures who appear from the deep woods are far from being knights in shining armour- and in these dark times, the price of salvation may just be too much to bear. With art by Tomas Aira. This volume collects War Stories #1 – 9 of the ongoing comic book series.
