Sell-Outs and New Printing Roundup

Check out some of this week’s newly announced sell-outs and new printings.

Image Comics

The first issue of the richly written and drawn fantasy Tooth & Claw will go back to print, but under a new title: The Autumnlands. The bombshell launch by bestselling writer Kurt Busiek, artist Benjamin Dewey, Eisner-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire, and letterer John Roshell of Comicraft will also boast an alternate cover on issue three by artist superstar Skottie Young.

About the title change, Busiek said in a release:

The launch of our new series has gone beautifully. We couldn’t be happier. Well, maybe just a little happier. I’m still not sure how we managed to screw up the trademark search. But as it turns out, the title we thought was clear for use is in fact registered to someone else, which is embarrassing as all hell. Oops.

So as of #2, the book will be titled The Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw and we’ll do our best to make sure people won’t miss it on the racks, or think it’s some wholly-different series. As you’ll see, we did make sure the logo will still be recognizable to the readers who snapped up #1.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

gotham academy 2 coverWednesdays 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! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Pick of the Week: Gotham Academy #2 (DC Comics) – Did you read the first issue? That alone should really be all that you need to know as to why we’re looking forward to the second issue. This tween focused series isa breath of fresh air, and a great addition to DC’s library. Here’s hoping we see more of this.

Avengers and X-Men: AXIS #4 (Marvel) – The first part of Marvel’s big event has wrapped up, and this issue kicks off the second story arc. The end of the last one was interesting to say the least. While overall the even has been mixed, it’s definitely moving the Marvel universe along.

The Ghost Fleet #1 (Dark Horse) – When one of the world’s most elite combat-trained truckers takes a forbidden peek at his payload, he uncovers a conspiracy that will change his life forever! A new series of badass action on the open road begins here! Sounds interesting enough.

Giant Robot Warrior Maintenance Crew #2 (Cosmic Times) – We’ve seen large robots battle, but who actually gets them to work? This series answers that question. The first issue was solid, and hoping the second is just as entertaining.

The Humans #1 (Image Comics) – Monkey biker gangs, nuff said. Courtesy of Keenan Marshall Keller and Tom Neely. It’s awesome.

John Carter: Warlord of Mars #1 (Dynamite) – Writer Ron Marz takes on a new beginning for the classic character. We already have a review up.

Men of Wrath #2 (Marvel/Icon) – The first issue was impressive, and writer Jason Aaron gives us some more hard boiled crime drama with a mix of family tension.

Terrible Lizard #1 (Oni Press) – The touching story of a girl and her T-Rex… with a healthy dose of collateral damage and monster conflict on the side. Courtesy of writer Cullen Bunn.

Tooth & Claw #1 (Image Comics) – Writer Kurt Busiek’s story of an original high-fantasy epic for mature readers, as a secret conclave of wizards brings a legendary champion back through time to save the world, with disastrous consequences.

The Zoohunters #1 (Aspen Comics) – Abros Kel is a ZooHunter—a man who is hired to capture animals for zoos on alien worlds. He and his young son Ty have lost everything due to a tragedy, and together this uncomfortable pair set out into the stars to train Ty as a ZooHunter. Along the way they encounter scores of alien life-forms on far away worlds including Qaurec—an unscrupulous rival ZooHunter who is hunting Abros down. Can Abros and Ty stay one step ahead of his villainy and prove successful in their quest? A new series from Aspen!
