Metal Society #5

Wednesdays (and Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

007 #2 (Dynamite) – The first issue delivered a solid take on James Bond that felt like the start to a film. We’re excited to check out the new villain.

Alien #1 (Marvel) – A new volume begins and this one begins to focus on a small colony of synths.

All-Out Avengers #1 (Marvel) – A new Avengers series? We’re intrigued to see where this goes.

Antioch #1 (Image Comics) – Spinning out of Frontiersman, a king attempting to stop man from killing the planet finds himself in a superhuman prison.

Batman: Dear Detective #1 (DC Comics) – Stringing together the amazing art of Lee Bermejo into a narrative.

Everyday Hero Machine Boy (Skybound/Image Comics) – We got a tease of the series already but it feels like a great wholesome robot trying to be a superhero story full of smiles and feels.

Golden Rage #2 (Image Comics) – Older women are thrown on an island where they battle it out! The first issue was great and we’re excited for more!

Highball #1 (AHOY Comics) – The best shot in the galaxy can only hit the target when he’s dead drunk. Sounds like it has potential.

Kali (Dark Horse Comics) – Stabbed in the back, poisoned, and left for dead by her own biker gang; Kali sets off on a one-way road of vengeance across a war-torn desert battlefield. Sounds like our kind of story.

Last Line #1 (AfterShock) – A driver on the tube swears a man was pushed in front of her train but the video and witnesses says otherwise.

The Lost Gardens #1 (Rabbit Hole Studios) – Defects in his technology implants sends a man spiraling downward by the economic forces to be.

Metal Society #5 (Image Comics) – The final issue!? Who will win in this MMA battle between man and machine?

Mind MGMT: Bootleg #3 (Dark Horse Comics) – The series continues to be the amazing twisted mind trip we expected and loved.

New Rat City #1 (Scout Comics) – Pests run rampant across the city in the year 2083 after years of floods and infrastructure mismanagement.

Shock Shop #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – A new horror story from Cullen Bunn? Yeah, we’re in. You can read our early review.

Survivor: Aron’s Story (Graphic History Publishing) – The life of Aron and his survival under Nazi occupation and the history of Jewish Disapora.

Vanity #2 (Black Caravan/Scout Comics) – The second chapter in the biopic of the legendary Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory.

Patrick Kindlon and Marco Ferrari re-team for Antioch

Fan-favorite Frontiersman creators Patrick Kindlon and Marco Ferrari re-team for an all-new ongoing series titled Antioch. This fast-paced, high-stakes story is set to launch from Image Comics this September.

Antioch follows a king from a lost continent who enters the world of man with a purpose: to stop us from killing the planet. But when he finds himself in a superhuman prison, his title is useless and his powers only matter if they help him survive! 

Antioch #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, September 7:

  • Antioch #1 Cover A by Ferrari – Diamond Code JUL220059
  • Antioch #1 Cover B Jeff Stokely – Diamond Code JUL220060
