INDEPENDENT PICKS FROM NEW COMIC BOOK RELEASES

3) YOU PROMISED ME DARKNESS #1

behemoth new comic book releases your promised me darkness
Approximately every 75 years, Halley’s Comet orbits around the sun, and every time this happens people around the world are born with incredible abilities, special auras that grant them with supernatural skills, but those auras can also be cursed. Yuko and Sebastian, two siblings with special auras are constantly running from an evil being, known as the “Anti-everything,” who feeds from these special auras, getting stronger with each intake. This being is obsessed with these brothers’ auras and will not stop until he feasts on them.

2) LOST ANGELES #1

lost angeles independent comics hot picks
The shocking and senseless assault of a privileged suburban teen leads local punk bouncer “Doyle” to investigate the crime on behalf of a grieving family, ultimately exposing a complex multi-billion-dollar real estate investment scheme tied to the 1984 Olympics whose greedy tentacles reach deep into City Hall. A vivid and unquestionably authentic portrayal of LA’s vibrant and violent 1980s, Lost Angeles brings to life the punk music, gangs and corrupt officials and, in doing so, echoes themes of race and politics very much alive and unresolved in 2021.

1) THE GIRLS OF DIMENSION 13 #1

Four young women are brought together by a mysterious invitation to live in a creepy building in NYC. They soon learn that the building houses a portal to the other twelve known dimen-sions, and that a malevolent creature known as Abraxis has bound these dimensions together, enslaving them to his will. For centuries, the portal has been guarded by a gatekeeper to prevent the evil on the other side from gaining access to OUR dimension.
Now the gatekeeper, Anna Nightlinger, is missing, and the only thing standing in Abraxis’ way is a quartet of young women with powers and abilities they don’t even know they have…for now.
Written by Inkpot Award-winning writer/artist Graham Nolan (The Chenoo, Return to Monster Island, co-creator of Bane) and illustrated by Emmy Award-winning artist, Bret Blevins (Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League), THE GIRLS OF DIMENSION 13 is a fantasy tale of discovery and empowerment, proving that sometimes all you need is a little help from your friends.

1) WAY OF X #1

hot picks x-men nightcrawler blink marvel comics
THE WAY TO THE FUTURE OF X! Mutantkind has built a new Eden…but there are serpents in this garden. Some mutants struggle to fit in. Some mutants turn to violence and death. And the children whisper of the Patchwork Man, singing in their hearts… Only one mutant senses the looming shadows. Snared by questions of death, law and love, only NIGHTCRAWLER can fight for the soul of Krakoa. Only he—and the curious crew he assembles (including fan-favorites Dr. Nemesis, Pixie, and Blink)—can help mutants defeat their inner-darkness and find a new way to live. This is the WAY OF X. Simon Spurrier (X-MEN: LEGACY) and Bob Quinn (CAPTAIN AMERICA) push the frontiers of Krakoa in this unmissable entry into the bold new REIGN OF X.
