The largest retailer in the world requires the best-trained loss prevention staff, and Security Officer Nussbaum defends the company interests at any cost. Life, human rights, rational thought are all secondary concerns. But his world is upended when he finds a society living under the retail outlet—a culture that challenges his notions about consumerism and sense of self. Is he ready for the message? Imagine Judge Dredd working for Amazon, and you’ve got a hint of what you’re in for.

From Patrick Kindlon (PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE!) and Stefano Simeone (CLANKILLERS) comes SHOPLIFTERS WILL BE LIQUIDATED—a satirical take on the consumer society.

Review: Wyrd #1

Wyrd #1

There are problems, cases, too strange for US law enforcement to solve. Pitor Wyrd is the one who solves them-for a fee, of course. An unaging, invincible detective with a penchant for the strange, Wyrd is the one the government calls when things go very badly and very strange. 

This issue: Crimea. A failed attempt at recreating a certain US supersolider. A monster roaming the countryside. A trail of bodies.

Reading the description, I went into Wyrd #1 expecting a riff on the X-Files and after checking out the first issue, it’s much more John Constantine than anything else. That’s not a bad thing at all. Writer Curt Pires delivers an entertaining issue but at the same time it’s nothing that really feels unique, so far.

We learn a bit about Piotr Wyrd mostly through teasing and he’s a hard drinking individual who doesn’t seem to enjoy life and has made some decisions in the past he regrets. He’s Constantine. And so far, that’s the biggest issue. He’s a her we’ve seen before a few times and isn’t unique enough. Now, that might change over the next four issues but for the first, it’s enough to entertain.

The art by Antonio Fuso is some solid style with coloring by Stefano Simeone it combines to create a visually interesting start. There’s a lot of use of the art to tease us about Wyrd’s story. There’s a lot of show, don’t tell and that extends to the big bad at the end where we’re visually hinted as to what’s going on. The lettering by Micah Meyers is important too giving a bit more personality to the big bad as well. Without that right lettering, the villain would just feel like a roided out reject from the mutant gang in Dark Knight Returns.

There’s nothing bad about this first issue. There’s also, so far, nothing that makes it really stand out. The art is good and tells a lot of the story. The main character feels a bit derivative. The villain is nothing all that special and things wrap up rather quickly. The first issue feels like a bit more of a teaser as to what’s to come than a story itself. Not enough unique to really get into what’s presented.

As Bond undergoes a post-mission medical examination, he relays the story of his previous mission to the examiner. Each cut, bruise, and broken bone connected to a specific event of the mission. A connection is made between two people with different purposes: one to save lives, the other to take them.

PART TWO – THE BRAIN

James Bond leads the interrogation of a scientist who allowed a lethal virus to be stolen. But when the investigation takes a surprising turn, Bond begins to question whether he is enough.

PART THREE – THE GUT

One sauna. Twenty Neo-Nazis. One Bond. James Bond.

This weapons deal won’t go according to plan.

PART FOUR – THE HEART

On the run from a lethal antagonist, weaponless and wounded deep in the Highlands, Bond finds solace with a woman who exchanged her job as a doctor and a life in the city for a cottage and solitary life of a writer. Can Bond find a quiet peace unlike he has known before or will his life choices catch up with him?

AND MORE…

Between a botched attempt at recreating a certain US supersolider, a monster roaming the countryside, and a trail of bodies, there is no case too big, too small, or too weird.

Writer Curt Pires oins forces with artist Antonio Fuso for Wyrd, a four-issue comics series that’s James Bond meets The X Files. The series is colored by Stefano Simeone and features variant covers by Jeff Lemire, Rafael Albuquerque, Gabriele Dell’Otto, and Danijel Zezelj.

Contains four exhilarating stand-alone Bond stories from superstar creators!

SERVICE: In contemporary politics, where Britain’s world standing is often more zero than 007, an assassin plans to exterminate the “special relationship,” and lead Britain and the United States into a very dark place…especially when he does so by aiming down the sights of an ancient Enfield rifle! It’ll test Bond’s deadly talents to their limits, in order to defeat the assassin and avert certain geopolitical disaster…

MONEYPENNY: Friend of JAMES BOND, former MI6 field agent and bodyguard of M! On a ‘routine’ protection mission, Moneypenny discovers a complicated assassination plot that bears a startling resemblance to a terrorist attack from her childhood. Can she call upon her secret agent skills to stop the plot…?

SOLSTICE: 007 accepts an unofficial mission. He travels to Paris, in pursuit of a Russian. But is Bond the hunter, or the hunted?

M: James Bond’s superior, code-named M, scrambles MI6’s secret agents across the globe. Sometimes, he knowingly sends them to their deaths, for the greater good. But a traumatic event from M’s early days in the eld returns to haunt him, forcing M to return to the scene of a crime…HIS crime.

$3.99 | b&w | mature

Downtown Honolulu is a sniper alley, and Saheer runs it better than anyone. He’s a local celebrity for transporting medicine and information across a no-man’s land occupied by militias and street gangs.

But what people say about you is never the full story, and when the cheers die out Saheer is left with just his anxieties… and his secrets.

The first of a five-issue series that keeps its foot pressed on your adrenal gland.

From writer Patrick Kindlon (We Can Never Go Home, There’s Nothing There, S.H.I.E.L.D.: Quake) and illustrator Antonio Fuso (James Bond), Survival Fetish is a pulse-pounding thrill-ride that mixes political intrigue with deep characters and high octane action.

Sean Lewis and Antonio Fuso’s Clankillers from AfterShock

Finola has a problem—her father is losing his mind. All the old king cares about is power…and Finola thinks power is stupid. Finola thinks her vicious older sisters are stupid. Finola thinks the royal court is stupid, and above all she thinks the clans across the country are stupid. So she makes a plan with her good friend Cillian: Let’s kill all the clans. And then, we go for dad.

Clankillers is a brand new series being publishing by AfterShock Comics, written by Sean Lewis, art by Antonio Fuso, and lettering by Dave Sharpe. The series is the demented stepchild of Game of Thrones, Braveheart and Mark Millar’s Kick Ass.

Out July 18, the first issue features a cover by Antonio Fuso and another by Juan Doe.
