AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: FULL CIRCLE [2019] #1

The “most unconventional Amazing Spider-Man story of all”…? There’s so many names attached to this 96-page one-shot, it makes me think this is a writer roulette thing where each creative team has to pick up the story where the previous left off. I have no idea though. Could be anything. Hmm. “A summons from SHIELD leads Peter Parker into a globe-spanning adventure that will test him as never before, one in which the future of all mankind lies in his gloved, webbed hands. Who is the mysterious prisoner in the steel box who keeps propelling the wall-crawler onward? Nick Spencer and an all-star team of Marvel’s biggest writers and artists take up the challenge to create the wildest, maddest, most […]

MONEY SHOT [2019] #1

This new series from Vault has a premise that is just risqué enough to ensure it’ll probably be an unexpected hit. “In the near future, space travel is ludicrously expensive and largely ignored. Enter Christine Ocampos, inventor of the Star Shot teleportation device. Her big idea: She’ll travel to new worlds, engage-intimately-with local aliens, and film her exploits for a jaded earth populace trying to find something new on the internet. Now, Chris and her merry band of scientist-cum-pornstars explore the universe, each other, and the complexities of sex in MONEY SHOT. A story about scientists having sex with aliens for the glory of mankind-and money.” Pre-Order Now

Maria) is back and issue #1 features a host of incredible cover artists. Set 25 years after the initial series, Vampirella is Dead? Long Live Vampirella.
