(W) Joshua Williamson (A) Christian Duce (CA) Howard Porter "FLASH WAR" prelude!

I wouldn't normally include Annuals or One-Shots on this list, but this is the first part of the highly anticipated Flash War crossover! I'm super psyched for this and if you dig the Flash, you should be, too.

Silencer #1

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Dan Abnett (A/CA) Sandra Hope, John Romita "CODE OF HONOR" part one! She's one of the DC Universe's deadliest assassins...and you've never heard of her. Super-strong, highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy meta-human abilities, the Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was. After decades as Leviathan's chief assassin, Honor Guest put in her time and managed to get out with her skin intact. Now she lives a normal life with a normal family in a normal house on a normal street. But the past has come back to haunt her in the form of her old employer and a deadly new mission...and Talia Al Ghul won't take no for an answer. RATED T+

What Red Shirt said:

This is the second of "The New Age of Heroes" lineup from DC's Post Dark Nights: Metal universe. It comes with a double vertical foldout cover like the rest.

If there's one thing the DC Universe has a plethora of, it's assassins. (Are there really so many assassinations that they need so many assassins?) This almost reminds me a bit of Warren Ellis's Red or the Bourne franchise. It's a fun trope, the idea of the retired assassin dragged back in to the life.

Motherlands #1 (of 6)

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Simon Spurrier (A) Rachael Stott (CA) Eric Canete In a crazed future where unhinged technologies and interconnected parallel Earths have given rise to a spectacular class of super-criminal, the most beloved celebrities aren't actors or rock stars, but the bounty hunters who traverse an exotic multiverse in search of impossible prey! But when the spotlight-shunning, strait-laced tracer known as Tab finds herself in an ultra-violent race for her greatest prize yet, she's forced to work with her greatest enemy, the only person capable of IDing him: her own elderly, overbearing and hypercritical mother, who was once the most fabulous and celebrated bounty hunter of them all. A sci-fi action comedy blacker than dragon s***, MOTHERLANDS is the dimension-hopping, criminal-blasting story of two extraordinary women written by Si Spurrier (SUICIDE SQUAD, The Spire) with art by Rachael Stott (Star Trek/Planet of the Apes, Sex Criminals).

What Red Shirt said:

What else can I say beside this book looks bada$$? If you're going to read a dark, gritty book, at least read one with a sense of humor.

Dark Horse Comics

Hungry Ghosts #1 (of 4)

$3.99

What Previews said:

(W) Anthony Bourdain, Joel Rose (A) Alberto Ponticelli, Vanesa Del Ray (CA) Paul Pope On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles-where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings-and prays to survive the challenge. Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food. First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly. Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope.

What Red Shirt said:

This is the first of the Berger Books imprint from Dark Horse. Karen Berger was a founding editor of the Vertigo label and helped shepherd such acclaimed books like Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, The Sandman, Fables, Hellblazer, The Invisibles, 100 Bullets, Preacher, V for Vendetta, and Y: The Last Man. What an amazing eye for talent!
