AND LO THERE CAME…A POISON! Part 1
In a secluded realm hidden amongst the snowy fissures of Antarctica, a dangerous world that time as forgotten continues to thrive — one where beastly giants of colossal size still roam the Earth and where the lines of man and monster blur. Enter Marvel’s newest hero, KID KAIJU, with the power to summon an all-new team of monstrous Marvel heroes – AEGIS, SLIZZIK, SCRAGG, HI-VO and MEKARA. But in a world already controlled by fiendish beasts, can KID KAIJU call an army powerful enough to protect the boarders of the Savage Land that threatens the very safety of the entire planet? PLUS: Includes 3 bonus MARVEL PRIMER PAGES! Story by Robbie Thompson and a TBA artist!
In the far reaches of space, the Poisons attack the Marvel Universe – but who exactly are these new enemies, and what destruction are they planning to unleash on Earth? This is just the beginning of Poisons diabolical plot to overthrow the Marvel Universe…and it requires an unexpected team-up! This January, the Children of the Atom will join forces with Eddie Brock for a 6-part crossover that begins in X-Men Blue Annual #1!
First seen in Venomverse, the Poisons pose a threat that can only be stopped by the X-Men – and Venom. When the X-Men drag Venom into space for help, it turns out that they’re going to need to save the universe from something a little scarier than their own troubles, and Eddie Brock and his faithful Symbiote might be the only thing that can help stop it!
Don’t miss the crossover everyone will be talking about – Poison X starts this January!
X-Men Blue Annual #1 is written by Cullen Bunn with art by Edgar Salzar and cover by Nick Bradshaw.
Dynamite Entertainment has announced their new agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures to develop original comic book projects based on the cult classic Pumpkinhead film franchise. The ever-talented Cullen Bunn has been tapped to serve as writer for the terrifying horror tale, slated to hit shelves in February 2018.
In the original Pumpkinhead film, a group of teenagers inadvertently kill a young boy in rural Appalachia, and his father seeks the powers of a backwoods witch to bring the child back to life. Instead, she invokes The Pumpkinhead – a monstrously clawed demon which, once reborn, answers only to Harley’s bloodlust. As the creature wreaks its slow, unspeakable tortures on the teens, Harley confronts a horrifying secret about his connection to the beast – and realizes that he must find a way to stop its deadly mission before he becomes one with the creature forever. A “vivid, stylish, atmospheric” film as described by The Hollywood Reporter, the Pumpkinhead film features a hypnotic, heart-rending performance by Lance Henriksen and the directorial vision of special effects master Stan Winston, and spawned three sequels.
Celebrated horror writer Cullen Bunn, artist Danny Luckert, and colorist Marie Enger will release Regression, Vol. 1: Way Down Deep this November from Image Comics. This trade paperback will collect issues #1-5 of the mind-bending horror series.
Plagued by ghastly waking nightmares, Adrian reluctantly agrees to past-life regression hypnotherapy. As his consciousness is cast back through time, Adrian witnesses a scene of horrific debauchery and diabolism. Waking, he is more unsettled than before, and with good reason—something has followed him back. Adrian descends into a world of occult conspiracy, mystery, reincarnation, and insanity from which there is no escape.

The wickedness of mankind has moved the Creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an ark to save his family and the animals of the world. But this is not Noah’s story. For darker powers have commanded the sorcerer Shrae to build his own ark and save the unnatural creatures of the world-such as the vampires, the dragons, the naga, and the manticore. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters, where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law?
Writer Cullen Bunn has been killing it with a series of horror comics and Dark Ark is added to the pull pile with a story about that “other ark” on the ocean at the same time as Noah. This ark is full of monsters and things aren’t going so well. Food is scarce and Noah’s ark is looking like a good target to help solve that.
Bunn presents a fascinating comic whose tension is enhanced by the fact that it takes place in such a small space while at the same time having the vast world around it that can’t be moved around in the traditional sense. The fact he’s able to mine a Biblical story and give it a new twist I haven’t seen before is impressive as well. Just when you think things have been mined completely… The first issue sets up the tension well, gives us the background of everything, and does that in a way that creates a lot of conflict to come. It’s smart, it’s interesting, and it has me wanting to read more.
I generally really enjoy Juan Doe‘s art and this looks great. It’s dark and there’s a lot packed in, so I found myself lingering on the pages to really figure everything out. That’s not a bad thing at all and shows how much is in there (the review copy was digital and had a stamp on it which might have contributed to things). The style of the monsters and characters are very cool too, not quite sure how to describe the style but it feels like there’s a slight manga influence to it all.
Dark Ark #1 is a solid debut. As I said, it mines material and gives it a new spin I wasn’t expecting and really enjoyed. I want to see where it all goes as Bunn sets up the conflict really well and it feels like a powder keg getting ready to explode. A great example of how the setting can make a story.
