There are some great new series beginning in July and we’ve highlighted our favourite eight which have all been added to our infamous 6-Issue and Minseries Subscriptions!
New from Titan Comics, The Blacklist is based on the popular TV show starring James Spader as master criminal Red Reddington. It will be written by Nicole Phillips with art from Beni Lobel (The Vampire Diaries, Constantine, True Blood) and feature new stories involving Reddington, Elizabeth Keen and other characters from the show. The fabulous Alice X. Zhang is on covers duty.
Marvel‘s Star Wars juggernaut continues to roll with their latest miniseries Lando, a five-issue run written by Charles Soule with art from Alex Maleev! Set before The Empire Strikes Back, Soule described it as “…a heck of a story. It’s really fun.” Definitely one to watch!
Tom Hardy‘s Mad Max: Fury Road is just hitting cinema screens, and he is the focus of the two-parter Mad Max – Fury Road: Mad Max. Mad Max creator George Miller writes this final part of DC‘s Mad Max: Fury Road prequels, where Max Rockatansky must survive a gladiatorial battle in a place called… Thunderdome Plus!
There’s another great crossover lined up in the vein of Star Trek / Doctor Who and Star Trek / Planet Of The Apes. This time it’s Star Trek / Green Lantern from DC and IDW, showcasing the meeting between Hal Jordan and Kirk, Spock, et al at the beginning of ‘The Spectrum War’.
Rivers Of London: Body Work is a new five-part series from author and Doctor Who writer Ben Aaronovitch, set in the world of his best-selling series of Rivers Of London novels starring Peter Grant, an apprentice wizard who works in a branch of the Metropolitan Police that deals with magic and the supernatural. The books have been well received by critics and we think this comic series will be too. The artwork revealed so far looks amazing!
Kieron Gillen brings Mercury Heat to July’s new comics via Avatar Press. Described as a world-building space epic, this ongoing sci-fi series introduces a future where individuals are identified by genetic markers and personality types for society, with the troublemakers heading to Mercury, a world of hard-as-nails miners and cyborgs where bounty agent Luiza enforces laws with extreme prejudice.
Fans of Y: The Last Man and Saga‘s Brian K. Vaughan may want to cast a glance towards We Stand On Guard, his new six-part series for Image Comics set in 2112 and featuring the United States invading Canada over a yet-to-be-revealed ‘inciting incident’. Brian K. Vaughan: “For this project, I personally took more inspiration from movies like “Das Boot” and a scarily relevant old film called “The Battle of Algiers,” both of which challenged me to try to understand and even sympathize with ‘the enemy.’ Hopefully, the crew of the diverse Two-Four will reflect that.” We’re predicting a great read!
Finally, US TV show Bob’s Burgers had a successful miniseries from Dynamite Entertainment and has now expanded to an ongoing run beginning in July. With creative input from the producers and writers of the show, it promises to be just as well-received as the TV show, highlighting the hilarious adventures of the Belcher family.
