“MILK WARS” part one! Welcome to the un-event of the year! Kicking off a line-wide adventure, DC’s Young Animal collides with the DC Universe to bring you a different kind of crossover. The Doom Patrol has discovered that an interdimensional corporation called RetCo has been stealing stories, reconfiguring them and repackaging them for new markets. Our gang of misfit heroes have felt the touch of this nefarious company, and it has already started to change them. Even scarier, though, is how deeply RetCo has embedded itself into current continuity, using the radioactive milk of psychic cows to quell the more dangerous impulses of the Justice League and turn them into heroes safe for the masses. And to kick this off, RetCo has gone all the way to the top. Meet Milkman Man, heretofore unknown final son of Krypton, who was sent to our planet to save him from the destruction of his homeworld, only to be adopted by an evil dairy farmer and raised to love all things dairy! Co-plotted by Steve Orlando and Gerard Way, with art by ACO (MIDNIGHTER), this extra-sized special starts “Milk Wars” with a splash! Plus, who is Eternity Girl, and how does she connect to this whole scheme? A special four-part back-up feature by Magdalene Visaggio (Kim and Kim) and Sonny Liew (The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye) begins here.

Frank Quitely and John Cassaday Join Grant Morrison and Dan Mora’s ‘Klaus and the Crisis In Xmasville’

BOOM! Studios has announced new variant covers by industry legends Frank Quitely and John Cassaday for Klaus and the Crisis In Xmasville in December. Eisner Award-winning writer Grant Morrison and Eisner Award-nominated artist Dan Mora return with an all-new chapter of their acclaimed reimagining of the Santa Claus origin story in a special oversized one-shot. The variant cover by Quitely, a longtime collaborator with Morrison on some his most acclaimed projects, marks his debut at BOOM! Studios.

In Klaus and the Crisis In Xmasville, an evil Santa from an alternate dimension has founded a soda corporation that uses Christmas and holiday cheer as a marketing tactic to build their fortunes. Only Klaus can defeat the Pola-Cola Corp. and the zombie-like Santas that are in the evil Santa’s thrall.

For this special, artist Dan Mora utilizes a variety of new techniques, including traditional watercolor, marking the first time he has used this method for one of his comics.

Print copies of Klaus and the Crisis In Xmasville will be available for sale on December 6 at local comic book shops.

Frank Quitely’s Kingsman: The Red Diamond #1 Variants

Mark Millar has unveiled previously unseen Kingsman: The Red Diamond #1 variants by superstar artist Frank Quitely.

Frank Quitely’s variants join covers by original Kingsman creator Dave Gibbons, Simon Fraser, and Rob Doyle to launch new series Kingsman: The Red Diamond from Image Comics on Wednesday, September 6th—just in time for this summer’s biggest blockbuster, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, to hit cinemas.

The new series sees brand-new creative team Rob Williams and British superstar Simon Fraser take the helm for an international spy adventure, one that kicks off where James Bond draws the line.

Hero Eggsy is still not-quite-Bond, still rough-around-the-edges, still trying to be the suave gentleman he was trained to be. We follow him on an international spy mission to save the world from The Red Diamond, a villain hell-bent on plunging society into chaos. Eggsy’s also up against the villain’s lethal hunchback henchman (hunchman?!) Ingot, and out to woo badass South African agent Kwaito while he’s at it.

Cue riots, explosions, and plenty of old school Kingsman violence.

Kingsman: The Red Diamond is the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service by Mark Millar, Dave Gibbons, and Matthew Vaughn. Kingsman: The Secret Service is the critically acclaimed comic book series by Kick-Ass writer Mark Millar, Watchmen‘s Dave Gibbons and director Matthew Vaughn. Now a Hollywood blockbuster starring Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, KINGSMAN reinvents the spy genre for the 21st century. The story follows a British secret agent who takes his wayward nephew under his wing and trains him to become a gentleman spy. Together, they uncover a plot that links kidnapped celebrities with a plot to eradicate 90% of the human race!

Kingsman: The Red Diamond #1 will be available in stores on Wednesday, September 6th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, August 14th.
