AVATAR PRESS

I think this is the type of book I like from Hickman.

GOD IS DEAD #6 (MR)
The battle of the gods is over and one stands supreme above all of the world. This is truly the end of days…until the gods of humankind are born and rise up. From the very DNA of the gods, man has once again taken pride and hubris to the very brink. Three who would formerly oppose the gods as mortals now walk as the divine. And they must use their newfound divinity to battle the very god of gods. JONATHAN HICKMAN’s unique vision of a world literally facing divine destruction brings its first chapter to a close with the most shocking of endings. Available with a Regular cover by Jonathan Hickman, End of Days cover, Iconic, and Gilded Order Incentive copies by Jacen Burrows and a special Carnage Wraparound by Rafa Ortiz.

HINTERKIND #5
Don't miss out on the book IGN praises as "weird. And then, once you've accepted that level of weird, it just keeps getting weirder." There's no predicting what twists and turns writer Ian Edginton will take in this story that Bloody Disgusting calls "Fast-moving and action-packed... [HINTERKIND] takes readers on an entertaining ride through the apocalypse." And that apocalypse is not even close to what anyone could ever imagine. Keep reading to see how Starla, the bad fairy, and Jubal, her ogre sidekick, escape the subterranean city, while Sidhe Queen Telsche revels in her West Coast Kingdom before her power is slowly stripped away.

I am looking forward to each and every book Zenescope has coming out this week. With Pat Shand writing 2 out of the 3 and the 3rd being written by Joe Brusha I am so excited!

GRIMM FAIRY TALES PRESENTS ASCENSION #1 (Of 5)
In the beginning, there were the Keepers: five god-like entities, devoted to protecting the Earth and the realms that surround it. Their leader, the Maker, created a son known only as the Being. But that son was not pure of heart and grew into a threat. His own father made a difficult decision to imprison him in a place of evil, the Shadowlands.

But centuries later, the Being found a way to open the gates of the Shadowlands, in turn unleashing unimaginable monstrosities upon Earth. Once free, the Being found his father, murdered him, and vowed to become humanity’s new god. This is his story.

  1. Both covers are cool but I was happy to get the Mack-daddy variant by David Mack of Fox #4. Getting Invincible Universe in trades for the extras. My store only single ordered Codename Action for me so I ended up with Jonathan Lau cover which I like even though I like Jae Lee's art as well. Looks like you have lots of reading ahead :)
