Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, June 16th, 2021.
Well, it’s time to say goodbye to Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s Venom run, but not before the huge 200th issue comes out.
$9.99 with LOTS of covers, including the one pictured above by JOCK. This book should give us an idea where Venom will stand in the Marvel Universe from here on out.
It’s time for another Demon Days one shot by Peach Momoko featuring Wolverine’s sometimes girlfriend, Mariko.
The book also features the Black Widow, and she’s on a really cool cover priced variant cover by J Scott Campbell.
The Hellfire Gala continues in one of it’s “marked as important” issues, the Planet Size X-Men One Shot.
If you get the regular X-Men title we’ll throw one aside for you.
Oh hey! $49.99 gets you the new Hawkeye PVC Gallery Statue this week!
Yup, that’s Pizza Dog!
Over on the other side of the pond, Tom King takes on run at Supergirl in a new eight issue mini series.
After a successful run on Omega Men, Mister Miracle and Adam Strange; Supergirl seems like a weird choice for King’s writing, but that’s what make it so cool. Krypto’s on board too. If you’ve gotten previous King titles, we’ll throw one aside for you as well.

Darick Robertson’s artwork in the new Legends of the Dark Knight series is something to behold, and his writing is not to shabby either.
Be sure to check it out and enjoy the visual feast he has on display.
We’ve finally got our act together, so copies of the new Batman / Fortnite #5 will be hitting the table on Wednesday. We’ve also got copies of issues #1 and #4 as well.
The boys are truly excited for the DCeased Hope at World’s End HC. It’s an all new story (well, it was digital first, but who cares about that icky format right?) filling in some gaps in the previous time jump.
Written by Tom Taylor as always and full of those really great moments we’ve gotten used to with this series. I read it last night and was fully entertained. Who doesn’t want to see Damian Wayne assume his rightful mantle?
Milestone is back and Static #1 is here.
Dare I say that Virgil Hawkins was a prototype for Miles Morales? Six issue mini series.
In the realm of really important books, DC has rounded up all it’s Represent! stories into one $9.99 book.
“New voices present relevant, topical visions of social change and personal histories, some true-to-life while others are semi-fictionalized accounts of real experiences. All have one thing in common—innovative styles and compelling stories which examine how our culture builds understanding, tracing society’s arc toward justice as we evolve in pursuit of a more just and compassionate world.”
There was a lot of demand to put these books into print and now we’ve got it.
SMALL PRESS & Netflix
Sure Jupiter’s Legacy will not be renewed on Netflix (but hey, it had some hard competition with Invincible) but that doesn’t mean Mark Millar’s new series won’t be great.
A twelve part sequel detailing the next generation of the Sampson family. Tommy Lee Edwards art is always easy to look at too.
A quick shout out to the MODOK show with Patton Oswald on Hulu. I wish it were a funnier show but I find myself in love with some on the concepts going on there.
Where else can you see the Leader, Mister Sinister, Madame Masque, Kang, Orb, Whirlwind, Angar the Screamer, Tenpin, Poundcakes, Armadillo, Mandrill and the Melter all in one episode. It’s really a parade of Comic Book / Movie Tropes and I love reflecting on it. It is also a guilty pleasure. (spoiler alert: Tatterdemalion appears in a later episode with Nathan Fillion as Wonder Man.)
