(W) Geoff Johns (A/CA) Gary Frank

DC Comics presents to you a 12-issue maxiseries from the critically acclaimed team of writer Geoff Johns, artist Gary Frank and colorist Brad Anderson. You are not prepared for what lies ahead within these pages, good readers.

What Red Shirt Comics said:

Well, we've all been waiting for it for over a year and now it is here. Geoff Johns tries to channel his best Alan Moore to really delve deep into the Watchmen universe and establish some connective tissue to the Earth-O DC Rebirth continuity.

Marvel Pick of the Week:

X-Men Gold #16

$3.99

THE NEGATIVE ZONE WAR Part 1 • Invaders from deep within THE NEGATIVE ZONE have come to reclaim one of their own... And they're taking one of THE X-MEN with them! Rated T+

What Red Shirt Comics said:

These new X-Men books are really fun reads in a 90s X-Men kind of way. One thing I've always loved about comics is when you get a new take on something established from another team of books. The Negative Zone has long been associated with the Fantastic Four and several of their villains. It's really cool to see the X-Men bouncing around there for a change.

Other Pick of the Week:

Imaginary Fiends #1

$3.99

"Polly Peachpit." Those were the words ten-year-old Brinke Calle said when she was found covered in her own blood by the woods in rural Cannon Falls, MN. Her best friend, Melba, had just attempted to murder her because a spider girl named Polly Peachpit told her to. Since that day, Melba has spent seven years in a mental health facility. Tomorrow is her eighteenth birthday. Tomorrow, she'll be transferred to a federal prison. Tomorrow, her real sentence will begin. That is, until she receives a visit from FBI Agent Virgil Crockett. Crockett explains that there is another world beyond ours, where hungry spectral aliens stalk the minds of the impressionable and weak. These things, called IMPs (Interdimensional Mental Parasites) feed on compliance. They convince hosts to do things for them, and the more they feed, the stronger they become. More IMPs stream into the world each day, invisible to everyone but his or her hosts. After years of drugs and counseling, Polly and Melba have developed a unique relationship-and to Crockett, this relationship represents something her people can work with. In exchange for release from prison, Crockett asks Melba (and Polly) to serve as IMP hunters. For Melba, it's a chance to prove that she's innocent, convinced to murder by a monster...a monster she must now unleash.

Okay, this is a pretty dark book setting up a very interesting partnership. The art is fitting the tone and I'm excited to see where this story goes.

Other Pick of the Week:

Void Trip #1

From writer RYAN O'SULLIVAN (Turncoat, The Evil Within, Warhammer 40,000) and illustrator PLAID KLAUS (Turncoat), comes the story of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans left alive in the galaxy. They're low on fuel, they're low on food, and they're low on psychedelic space froot, but they're still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise, super-planet Euphoria. This is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it. "Beautiful, drugged, and hilarious sci-fi from an alternate universe where the only Captain America anyone cares about is the one in Easy Rider."-KIERON GILLEN

What Red Shirt Comics said:

If Kieron Gillen (of The Wicked + The Divine fame) likes it then I'm all in. It's high fantasy with emphasis on high.
