FINAL ISSUE!

DAN DARE, the alien warrior princess AU TAWEEN, DIGBY and PROFESSOR PEABODY have successfully boarded the mysterious TREEN ship that had invaded the Sol system. From his moon base prison, THE MEKON hacked into the Treen ship and released an incredibly virulent Treen computer virus that not only infected the ship’s computer systems but also somehow infected the alien crew itself.

Unfortunately, the virus also attacked Dan and the others.

Dangerously sick, it was only the timely intervention of The Mekon that saved their lives when he engineered a cure for the computer virus. However, after she had recovered and come face-to-face with The Mekon, Au Taween went berserk, snatched a guard’s gun and attempted to shoot him. Dan stepped between them and attempted to protect The Mekon, just as Au Taween prepared to fire…

It is a golden time for Earth and the Sol Alliance. Peace reigns supreme. The MEKON, perhaps mankind’s greatest enemy, has finally been vanquished and is undergoing behavioral treatment in a maximum-security prison built on the Moon.

Yet the one man responsible for the capture of the Mekon, the legendary space pilot DAN DARE, languishes in a prison of his own making. With no foe to fight, battle to win or day to be saved, Dan finds himself shackled by the chains of normality and boredom. In a silent prayer, Dan begs the universe to give him a reason to take flight again to the stars.

And his prayers have seemingly been answered.

From an uncharted sector of the galaxy an ancient spaceship of unknown origin and purpose has arrived, broadcasting a strange, un-decipherable signal – and stated its intent by destroying one of the moons of Saturn in a colossal show of strength and firepower…

Hitch a ride on the ‘Pork Chop Express’ with Big Trouble in Little China

You know what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like this?” This June, BOOM! Studios will tell you just what ol’ Jack Burton says in his continuing adventures in Big Trouble in Little China, a new, ongoing series from comics favorites Eric Powell and Brian Churilla. The cult-classic film combined ‘80s supernatural action with ‘70s kung-fu flicks, and BOOM! has the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working alongside Powell to bring that over-the-top spirit to the comic.

Jack Burton, a macho, truck-driving adventurer, finds a stowaway hiding on  his rig, The Pork Chop Express, but that soon becomes the least of his troubles. He helped his best friend Wang save his fiancée from the clutches of a demon, but now the wedding has been invaded by more evil forces with one thing on their minds—revenge against Jack Burton!

Big Trouble in Little China #1 arrives in comic shops on June 4th. The main cover is illustrated by Eric Powell, and retailer incentive covers by Joe Quinones (whose covers for issues #1-4 will connect), Chris Weston, and Terry Dodson, will be available in limited quantities. Additionally, an ultra-limited variant illustrated by Emi Yonemura Brown featuring Jack Burton’s iconic tank top will also be available.

Rogue Trooper Joins the Fight!

Following the success of Judge Dredd, IDW and Rebellion/2000 AD have expanded their thriving relationship with the addition of Rogue Trooper to their publishing slate! IDW will launch an all-new Rogue Trooper series in 2014, and also offer newly colored re-presentations of past Rogue Trooper comics, too.

Co-created by Gerry Finley-Day and renowned artist Dave Gibbons in 1981 for 2000 AD, Rogue Trooper became a showcase for some of Britain’s top artistic talent. In addition to Gibbons, Steve Dillon, Colin Wilson, Cam Kennedy, Bret Ewins, and Chris Weston have contributed art to the popular strip.

A future war has poisoned the entire atmosphere of Nu-Earth, prompting one side to create Genetic Infantrymen: blue-skinned soldiers who can breathe the toxic air, equipped with bio-chips to record their personalities in their final moments for eventual re-corporation. But a traitor sold the G.I.s out, and all but one were slaughtered. Now he stalks Nu-Earth on a mission of revenge, aided by his dead friends now “living” in his gun, helmet and backpack. He is the last G.I.—the Rogue Trooper!

Classic Rogue Trooper strips will be seen in a whole new light in full-color comics and collections with hues provided by colorist Adrian Salmon, best known for his work on Doctor Who and Judge Dredd. The all-new series in the offing will follow the tradition of IDW’s successful Judge Dredd series by Duane Swierczynski and Nelson Daniel. Creator names and details will follow at a later date.

With a rich history to build upon, IDW will add to the proven franchise, bringing Rogue Trooper into the 21st century for an all-new audience.

Elephantmen at the Half-Century Mark

Elephantmen, Richard Starkings‘ epic science fiction series exploring the ramifications of genetic experimentation, war, and racism, is reaching a milestone this July: its 50th issue. Elephantmen debuted in 2006, published by Image Comics, a spin-off of Starkings self-published (and now Image title) Hip Flask.

Following a group of human/animal hybrid super-soldiers who are struggling to integrate themselves into a society that is often hostile to their very existence, the series has gone on be collected into six hardcovers and trade paperbacks. It has featured art by Ladrönn, Boo Cook, Chris Burnham, Shaky Kane, and Axel Medellin, and the cover of Elephantmen #43 is among the work that earned Brandon Graham a “Best Cover Artist” Eisner Award nomination.

“Fifty issues! One more and Elephantmen is as old as I am!” marveled creator and writer Starkings, who also owns the well-respected comics lettering studio Comicraft. “When we launched the series in 2006, I thought maybe I had six issues in me, yet here we are, seven years later and six Elephantmen collections in stores and another in preparation for release this summer!”

Elephantmen #50, “Blue Collar Blues,” has a cover by renowned comics artist Frank Quitely, and comes after the close of the monumental “Sleeping Partners” story arc. It brings the story into the intimate sphere of one Elephantman, following his everyday life with its struggles and small triumphs. The issue is illustrated by series regular Axel Medellin and Gabe Bautista and also includes a re-presentation of Elephantmen #1, with art by Moritat, and a gallery of covers by Brandon Graham, Camilla d’Errico, J. Scott Campbell, Brian Bolland, Chris Weston, Ladrönn, Ian Churchill, and Ed McGuinness.

Elephantmen #50 will be in stores on July 17 and is available for pre-order from the May issue of Previews. The revised and expanded Elephantmen Volume 1, which now includes issue #0 with art by Ladrönn and an introduction by Jonathan Ross, will be in stores on May 22. The newest collection, Volume 6: Earthly Desires, due in stores in July 10, is also available for preorder.
