✨ Hello Lovely Beings ✨


Rare Flavours [Cover A]

Discover the tantalizing tale of Rubin Baksh, a demonic Rakshasa with a down-to-earth dream of becoming the next Anthony Bourdain.

To achieve his vision, Rubin enlists Mo, a filmmaker who has seen better days, to document the world-renowned cuisine of India and the people behind such glorious food.

But little does Mo know that there's more to Rubin than meets the eye, and the mortals play a darker role in the show than they were prepared for...

Entice your palate with the follow up offering from the Eisner, Harvey, and Ringo Award-nominated team of Ram V (Detective Comics, Blue In Green) and Filipe Andrade (Fantastic Four, Star) in this series painstakingly prepared for fans of Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts and Eat The Rich!


Wild's End 4 [Cover A]

A quest for heavy firepower to turn the tide seemingly yields only horror for the crew of The Merry Beet, as they finally discover how some of the townsfolk are being put to use.

Desperate to save their home and concoct some sort of plan, a mysterious figure in the woods may provide just what they're looking for...







Wonder Woman 1 [Cover D Rose Besch]

The Amazon warrior is now a wanted outlaw! A new era for the Amazon warrior begins, from the superstar team of Tom King and Daniel Sampere!

 

After a mysterious Amazonian is accused of mass murder, Congress passes the Amazon Safety Act, barring all Amazons from U.S. soil. To carry out their plans, the government starts a task force, the Amazon Extradition Entity (A.X.E.), to remove those who don't comply, by any means necessary. Now, in her search for the truth behind the killing, Wonder Woman finds herself an outlaw in the world she once swore to protect! Writer Tom King (Batman, Mister Miracle, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow) and superstar artist in the making Daniel Sampere (Dark Crisis, Action Comics) join forces for this action-packed relaunch and the beginning of what will undoubtedly become a groundbreaking run on the character.



Uncanny Spider-Man 1 [Cover A]

The Nightcrawling Wall-Crawler!

 

On the darkest of days, he is the spark in the shadows! After the devastating events of the Hellfire Gala, Kurt Wagner is on the run - and having the time of his life?! Swashbuckling about NYC in disguise, the Uncanny Wallcrawler sets aside his mutant angst and dedicates himself to the hero's life: saving civilians, hanging with fellow wallcrawlers, battling baddies, and hunting down the best pizza on the planet. But he can't ignore the mutant plight forever... Si Spurrier and Lee Garbett launch a joyful, sexy series that will shake Nightcrawler to his foundations - and have a hell of a good time doing it!

Rated T+


Rumpus Room 1 [Cover A]

Eisner Award-winning writer Mark Russell (NOT ALL ROBOTS) returns to AWA with his latest dark satire, with art by Ramon Rosanas (YEAR ZERO VOL. 1).

 

Meet Bob Schrunk, technocrat billionaire, collector of bad art, and victim of a hideous skin condition that can only be treated with a highly illicit and definitely not FDA-approved face cream that must be...harvested. From human beings.


Bob isn't unfair, though. He's happy to let his guests select who will be next to be sent from the Rumpus Room to their doom.

There's just one thing Bob doesn't know: One of his current guests is an undercover cop-and she's carrying a concealed gun.


The Case of the Bleeding Wall


"Champion Mojo Storyteller" Joe R. Lansdale (Hap & Leonard, Bubba Ho Tep) and his daughter, author/country singer Kasey Lansdale (Creepshow, Impossible Monsters), join forces with award-winning artist Daniele Serra (Hellraiser, TheCrow) and colorist Tom Napolitano to bring you Dana and Jana-the new dynamic duo of supernatural-er, supernormal sleuthing!






Hexagon Bridge


MINISERIES PREMIERE!


Explorers Jacob and Elena Armlen find themselves trapped in a strange parallel dimension of elusive landscapes and shifting architecture inhabited by mischievous entities. Now it's up to their clairvoyant daughter Adley and sentient robot Staden to rescue them!







The Left-Hand Path



Returning to their home world, a deep space crew investigates the ship that crashed there, killing everything. What they find inside it is a paradox: it seems to have no center. This is doom-laden space horror from Scott Bryan Wilson (Pennyworth, TrveKvlt) and Ken Knudtsen (Wolverine). You've been warned.





There are a couple titles that weren't ready for pick-up, but are confirmed so I thought I'd just leave them for my next Comic Picks post. Or whenever I end up picking them up! I stay being drawn to anything spooky as you can see lol! I'd made a rule for myself, when I finally let me start collecting comics, that if I was ever swayed by a "omfg pretty" cover, it would have to be an issue number 1. I gave myself some grace with the Rose Besch DC covers that have been coming out lol! Rose and Peach are my weaknesses!


✨Thank you for reading!✨
