Kommentar: En ny originstory till Harley Quinn, författad och tecknad av Stjepan Šejic och utgiven på DC:s vuxenetikett Black Label låter spännande.

Kommentar: Bendis och Ryan Sook kommer inom en snar framtid publicera en ny Legion of Super-Heroes-titel men innan dess måste det städas upp bland tidslinjerna. Med hjälp av den tvådelade miniserien Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium och en mystisk kvinnlig hjältinna som gör en tidsresa genom ett årtusende ska detta bli verklighet och miniserien kommer att bjuda på möten med Supergirl (tecknad av Jim Lee), Batman Beyond (tecknad av Dustin Nguyen), Kamandi (tecknad av Andrea Sorrentino) samt Tommy Tomorrow (tecknad av André Lima Araújo) och andra numret kommer att bjuda på bidrag av Nicola Scott, Jim Cheung och Jeff Dekal.

NO COMPROMISE. NO MERCY.
ALL NEW, ONGOING SERIES!
From the dark minds of rising stars Tini Howard and Germán Peralta comes a tale of the underside of the Marvel Universe! A new threat is secretly taking over the planet — and the more people who know about it, the more powerful the threat becomes. Blade dealt with this threat once before, and hoped to never have to again. He can’t bring the Avengers in on this — not just for their own safety, but for the safety of everyone on Earth. So he must recruit a team of heroes accustomed to darkness — a strikeforce. Blade, Angela, Spider-Woman, Wiccan, the Winter Soldier, Monica Rambeau and Daimon Hellstrom join forces to fight the fights that no other Marvel team can take on!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

Intresse: 2
Kommentar: En udda konstellation av hjältar med Blade i spetsen tar sig an ett mystiskt hot. Låter som den typ av berättelser som Marvels gamla trotjänare Defenders brukade figurera i men eftersom det teamet inte haft en serie på länge så är det dags för nya förmågor.

CRAZY #1
GERRY DUGAN, FRANK TIERI, JON ADAMS AND MORE (W)
DON SIMPSON, SCOTT KOBLISH, JON ADAMS AND MORE (A)
COVER BY JOHN McCREA
VARIANT by DAVID NAKAYAMA
VARIANT COVER BY TBA
MARVEL’S GREATEST…ER…MOST DEMENTED COMIC MAGAZINE
OBNOXIO THE CLOWN is back and so is one of MARVEL’S most hilarious titles thanks to a momentary lapse in sanity on the part of a few over-worked editors and a gang of writers and artists ready to take advantage of it. No super hero is safe! No comic book event is sacred! Will the Marvel Universe ever be the same? Will we want it to?
40 PGS./One-Shot/Rated T …$4.99

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: Mellan 1973 och 1983 publicerade Marvel ett eget MAD-liknande magasin med titeln Crazy som sedan 1980 hade haft den vulgäre och cigarrpuffande clownen Obnoxio som maskot. Nu återkommer clownen och titeln och det ska bli spännande att se om förlaget lyckas leverera ett gammaldags humormagasin.

KING THOR #1 (of 4)
Jason Aaron (W) • ESAD RIBIC (A/C)
Variant cover by ADAM KUBERT
Variant cover by GERARDO ZAFFINO
IMMORTAL WRAPAROUND VARIANT COVER BY TBA
SUPERSTARS JASON AARON & ESAD RIBIC CONCLUDE THEIR EPIC THOR STORY!
• The creators of the legendary THOR: GOD OF THUNDER series that kicked off one of the most epic runs in Marvel history are back together for one last ride with the almighty Lord of Asgard! Seven years ago, Jason and Esad introduced the Thor of the far future, All-Father of a broken realm and a dying universe, as he stood in battle against the Butcher of Gods, wielder of All-Black the Necrosword. Now that nefarious blade has returned, in the hands of Thor’s all-time greatest enemy – his brother, Loki – for one final, cataclysmic showdown. Behold the book no comics fan should miss – the celebration of the end of a truly Marvelous era.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

Kommentar: Jason Aaron och Esad Ribics fabulösa arc God Butcher från 2013 slog mig med häpnad och blev början på Aarons mycket långa run med åskguden. Nu närmar sig hans sejour sitt slut och den avrundas med King Thor och Ribic som tecknare så det här kan inte bli annat än bra.

Variant cover by Martin Simmonds
VARIANT COVER BY BOB MCLEOD
STRONG AND FREE!
Don’t miss this momentous event as legendary creators CHRIS CLAREMONT and BILL SIENKIEWICZ reunite with Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Cypher, Mirage, Karma, and Sunspot to share this never before told story of the New Mutants’ past! When Warlock experiences a nightmare, he begins going haywire, and it’s up to his friends to save him! But as Warlock grows more frenzied, they should be worrying about being able to save themselves…and doubly so when Magik’s inner demon, Darkchylde, threatens to break free! Also, a special guest appearance by none other than Kitty Pryde!
40 PGS./ONE-SHOT/Rated T+ …$4.99

Kommentar: En one-shot med New Mutants författad av Chris Claremont och tecknad av Bill Sienkiewicz låter som en gudagåva och måste utforskas.

IMAGE COMICS

WRITER: Mike Norton
ARTIST: Mike Norton, Allen Passalaqua
COVER A: Allen Passalaqua, Mike Norton
COVER B: Chris Samnee, Matt Wilson
SEPTEMBER 04 / 32 pages / FC/ T+ / $3.99
The hit fan-favorite webcomic created by the Eisner Award-winning duo of MIKE NORTON and ALLEN PASSALAQUA is now a NEW COMIC SERIES! It’s been a few years since the last Kinmundian saved the world with the help of his faithful Battlepug, but a new threat arises.

Curse Words #25
WRITER: Charles Soule
ARTIST / COVER A / COVER B: Ryan Browne
SEPTEMBER 25 / 32 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
Friends, it’s been a hell of a ride, just a hell of a ride… and now it’s time to see how CURSE WORDS brings this ungainly wizard ship in for a landing. Will it be better than the finales for Game of Thrones, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, and M*A*S*H combined? Without a doubt. Thank you for all your support for this series over the years… we’ll see you on the next one!

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: Curse Words började bra men jag tappade tyvärr sugen under läsningen av andra volymen, så pass mycket att jag till och med slutade läsa den vilket inte hör till vanligheterna. Jag har däremot hört att den är värd att utforska och nu när jag också vet att den avslutas med #25 så tänker jag göra ett nytt försök.

SEPTEMBER 04 / 32 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (BITCH PLANET, Captain Marvel) and EMMA RÍOS (MIRROR, I.D.) begin a new chapter in the dark and deadly golden era of Hollywood. Select praise for PRETTY DEADLY: ”Pretty Deadly going to old Hollywood is the best turn this dark fable has taken yet.

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: Pretty Deadly är tillbaka med en ny arc och även om jag inte är helt såld på denna poetiska och våldsamma serie av Kelly Sue DeConnick så är jag desto mer förtjust i Emma Ríos illustrationer så det blir att vänta in traden.

SFSX (Safe Sex) #1
WRITER: Tina Horn
ARTIST: Michael Dowling
COVER A: Tula Lotay
SEPTEMBER 25 / 24 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
Notorious kink writer TINA HORN teams up with artist MICHAEL DOWLING (Unfollow, Death Sentence) for SFSX, a social thriller about sex, love, and torture that reads like SEX CRIMINALS in Gilead crossed with Oceans 8—with a SUNSTONE twist! In a draconian America where sexuality is bureaucratized and policed, a group of queer sex workers keep the magic alive in an underground club called the Dirty Mind. Using their unique bondage skills, they resolve to infiltrate the mysterious government Pleasure Center, free their friends, and fight the power!

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: SFSX skulle ha blivit den sista titeln i Vertigos nysatsning men som de flesta hört vid det här laget har DC Comics beslutade sig för att lägga ner detta legendariska imprint. Det är glädjande att serien fått ett nytt hem hos Image Comics och att Vertigos anda lever vidare hos flera av dagens förlag.

Trees: Three Fates #1 (of 5)
WRITER: Warren Ellis
ARTIST / COVER A: Jason Howard
SEPTEMBER 11 / 24 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
“A uniquely exciting read.” —IGN The acclaimed series from WARREN ELLIS and JASON HOWARD—which is currently being adapted for television—returns with a brand-new story of murder and ghosts! In the remote Russian village of Toska, there’s a dead body by the leg of the Tree that landed eleven years ago. Police sergeant Klara Voranova, still haunted by that day, has no idea how this murder will change everything—nor what awaits her in the Tree’s shadow.

Intresse: 5
Kommentar: Injection och Trees är mina favoritserier av Warren Ellis just nu och nu när den senare återvänder till seriehyllorna hoppas jag att väntan på fortsättningen på den förra inte dröjer allt för länge.

They’re currently living and screwing in the back of a truck, hoping for a pregnancy, which seems like it will never come.

Kommentar: Enda sedan jag läste Eleanor Davis You & a Bike & a Road har jag hållit ögonen öppna efter fler av hennes verk och jag blev fullständigt golvad av hennes senaste verk Why Art? I början på oktober kommer hennes nya seriebok Hard Tomorrow som berättar en sammanhängande fiktiv historia om utanförskap och längtan efter ett barn.

MAE TP VOL 02 (LION FORGE)
(W) Gene Ha (A/CA) Gene Ha
Mae has followed her long-lost sister Abbie through a gate and into another world: Cimrterén, a world full of dangerous creatures, strange science, and warring nobles. Their father has gone missing at the hands of these malicious dukes, and Mae and Abbie must fight their way to the heart of Ebenhrad to find their father. Along their journey, they’ll come across old friends, plus some new adversaries determined to stand in their way.
In the second volume of the series, Mae and Abbie face some of their biggest challenges yet.
Even fantasy-locked sisters can have their differences. After a big blow-up fight, Mae sets out on her own, leaving Abbie behind. When Mae learns that navigating her own way through Cimrterén isn’t as easy as she thought, she calls on her old friend Dahlia for backup.
Together they begin to uncover sinister secrets and piece together a much darker history to the Fortell family than they’d ever thought possible.

Kommentar: Lion Forge har imponerat under året med sin underetikett Magnetic där de ger ut engelska utgåvor av mestadels europeiska serier, såsom A Sea of Love, Watersnakes och Herakles. Gene Has ungdomsäventyr Mae, tidigare utgiven av Dark Horse Comics, har även fått en ny hemvist på förlagets tonårsetikett Roar och nu är det dags för andra samlingsvolymen. Även om serien var lite ojämn så är jag sugen på att se hur det går för Mae och hennes syster Abbie i fantasivärlden Cimrterén och om de lyckas hitta sin försvunne far.

MÅNADENS TIPS

Valet står mellan Ether: The Disappearance of Violet Bell och Trees: Three Fates och även om jag gillar bägge två mycket så är jag extra svag för Matt Kindts porträtt av Boone Dias och David Rubíns fenomenala illustrationer.
