The Sandman Special #1, DC Comics

Dan Jurgens, Steve Orlando, Jon Bogdanove, Rick Leonardi and Paul Pope

This weeks Kirby 100th Celebration pick is from DC. The Sandman Special #1 is awesome down to the tinyest of Kirby dots.

This issue is packed with Kirby genius. We get two new Sandman tales and some actual classic Kirby stories. Check out the PREVIEW BELOW.

"Don’t miss two new tales starring Jack Kirby’s costumed Master of Nightmares from the 1970s. Sandman, Brute and Glob battle an onslaught of dreams so powerful that they are invading the dreams of other people! Then, a grown-up Jed Walker returns to his childhood home, only to find himself haunted by dreams from the past. Plus: a seldom-seen Sandman story from the 1970s!" - DC Comics


Dark Nights Metal #1, DC Comics

Scott Snyder, Danny Miki and Greg Capullo

I had to read this book twice for fear I had crossed into another dimension. Dark Nights Metal #1 is loaded with what-the-hellisms and other shockers. Scott and team pull in more than a few characters which were previously steam rolled by the N52 continuity, and one wham-dinger of a reveal at the conclusion of the book. I knew this was going to be a crazy book, but damn I had no idea it would be this gutsy and daring. You are just going to have to grab a copy for yourself.

"The superstar BATMAN team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo reunite for a massive, universe-spanning event!

"DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and THE CASTING hinted at dark corners of reality that have never been seen till now! Now, as DARK NIGHTS: METAL begins, the Dark Multiverse is revealed in all its devastating danger-and the threats it contains are coming for the DC Universe!" - DC Comics

"DARK NIGHTS: METAL is a DC event unlike any other-one that will push Batman, Superman and heroes of the Justice League beyond their limits to take on threats unlike any our world has ever seen! It will take the combined might of the World's Greatest Heroes as you've never seen them before to face what's coming their way!" - DC Comics

Mother Russia #2, Alterna Comics

”One baby. One rifle. Two million ZOMBIES!

”As a zombie apocalypse breaks out in WWII, a Soviet sniper risks her life to protect an innocent baby boy.

”Created by New York Times Best-Selling author and artist, Jeff McComsey.” – Alterna Comics

This is a great book and I’m digging it all over again. The visual aesthetic of the book really lends itself well to the newsprint medium. You should check out other Alterna Comics titles if you haven't already. The creative force is strong with them.


Mage: The Hero Denied #1, Image Comics

Matt Wagner

Nasties need whacking, but MatchStick has to swing by the ATM first. The long awaited third volume of the Mage series hits the shelves today and you should be reading it.

"LEGENDARY WRITER / ARTIST MATT WAGNER RETURNS FOR THE THIRD AND FINAL VOLUME OF HIS EPIC FANTASY TRILOGY—MAGE: THE HERO DENIED! This first full-sized issue begins 10 years after the climax of THE HERO DEFINED and finds the everyman hero Kevin Matchstick at an unexpected point in his life. It’s been some time since he’s utilized his powers as the reincarnated Pendragon, wielder of the mystical weapon Excalibur. Despite his reluctance to fulfill what two different Mages have declared as his destiny, dark forces have gathered to once again force Kevin into action. Throughout these events, Kevin keeps hoping for the same mystical guidance that has mentored him in the past.

"MAGE: THE HERO DENIED will be a 15-issue limited series climaxing in a double-sized finale. Newly repackaged editions of the previous books from the trilogy—THE HERO DISCOVERED and THE HERO DEFINED—will be released over the course of the new series. MAGE has been a perennial favorite with old and new readers alike for nearly three decades." - Image Comics
