The fledgling team of the Amazing X-Men have already faced off against demon arms from Hell and ravenous hordes of Wendigos and there is no rest in sight for our band of heroic mutants as one of the X-Men’s most notorious villains charges back into their world. This January marks the return of The Unstoppable Juggernaut within Amazing X-Men #15 by series writer, Chris Yost and interior artist Jorge Fornes.
The story, called “The Once and Future Juggernaut” finds former wielders of the Gem of Cyttorak, Cain Marko and X-Man Peter “Colossus” Rasputin, getting the call to become the inter-dimensional power’s external force once again, but they’re not the only ones invited to the party.
While Yost remains tight-lipped about who those other characters might be he does give a few hints about what kinds of folks are being called. “
A few of the strongest characters in the Marvel Universe get the call. But Cyttorak needs a specific kind of person… someone they can manipulate. Someone who craves the power.
Cyttorak wants an avatar. It’s a status thing among the other mystical entities/gods. All the cool other-dimensional powers have one. The return of the gem is part of the mystery, but the X-Men know that whatever Cyttorak wants, it’s probably not good.
Next year, Amazing X-Men #15 charges into comic book retailers and ushers in a new era for the X-Men as we bear witness to the rebirth of one of the most well-known X-Men villains of all time – The Unstoppable Juggernaut!

One of the things in 2015 we’re looking forward to is Dark Circle Comics the darker take on the classic Red Circle characters. Slated to launch early next year, the publishing line will include The Black Hood, The Shield, and The Fox as ongoing series.
Today they revealed promotional artwork (left) by Francesco Francavilla and announced rising-star David Williams as the regular series artist on The Shield and Harvey Award winning artist Jose Villarrubia will be joining the team of Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid on The Fox.
The Black Hood is a gritty, noir crime thriller written by Duane Swierczynski with artwork by Michael Gaydos presenting the Black Hood as an urban vigilante.
The Shield features a new and different incarnation of the classic character in a superhero action-adventure story by Adam Christopher, Chuck Wendig, and David Williams.
The Fox by Dean Haspiel, Mark Waid, and Jose Villarrubia, will follow the crazy and entertaining adventures of Paul Patton Jr in his attempts to fight crime in Impact City.
Indie toy company Warpo has released a first-look at the forthcoming Legends of Cthulhu retro action figure line. These images represent the four Legends of Cthulhu figures – Spawn of Cthulhu, The Deep One, The Professor, and The Cultist, as well as the Kickstarter Exclusives High Priest and Conjured Cthulhu – in their unpainted form from the factory. These images are early production sneak-peeks, and not the final product.
Legends of Cthulhu was funded via Kickstarter in June 2014, raising the initial funds in just three days. The retro action figures are currently available for pre-order through Diamond Comic Distributors at your local comic book store, as well as through Big Bad Toy Store, and will be available at retail January 2015.
Legends of Cthulhu is a retro-styled, 3.75” action figure line, the first based on the iconic characters of H.P. Lovecraft and created by sculptor Eddy Mosqueda, and artist Ken Kelly, the pioneers of the look and feel of beloved action figures from the 1970s and 1980s, to bring Legends of Cthulhu to life.
Last year the extraordinary world introduced in Paul Pope‘s Battling Boy was rife with monsters and short on heroes… I finished that first volume and immediately wanted to read more. The look, the vibe, everything about it, was fresh and fun. It was exactly what the comic market needed, something that was fun.
While we wait for the second volume of that great series, we get a tie-in with The Rise of Aurora West, out next week from First Second, it pairs Pope with writer J.T. Petty and artist David Rubin to give us an action-driven extension of the Battling Boy universe. We see the world through a new pair of eyes: Aurora West, daughter of Arcopolis’s last great hero, Haggard West.
A prequel to Battling Boy, The Rise of Aurora West follows the young hero as she seeks to uncover the mystery of her mother’s death, and to find her place in a world overrun with supernatural monsters and all-too-human corruption.
It should be no surprise that the graphic novel is amazing, continuing the tour de force that is the Battling Boy world.
To promote the upcoming release artist David Rubin is doing a virtual tour to promote the book including a stop here! Check out this exclusive art of one of the monsters you’ll see, which will hopefully get you excited to check out the book when it hit shelves. And come back next week for a review of the graphic novel!
