Astonishing X-Men #1 - $4.99
By writer Charles Soule & artist Jim Cheung | Marvel
Marvel may well have saved the best for last when it comes to the ResurrXion relaunch. Astonishing X-Men sees writer Charles Soule jump over from the Inhumans franchise to build a new ensemble series featuring some of the most popular mutant heroes around. Each issue will tell a standalone story and feature a different artist, but every new chapter will contribute to a larger story involving the return of the Shadow King.
Clearly, this new series has a lot to live up to considering the importance of the "Astonishing X-Men" name. We're optimistic Soule and his artists can rise to the challenge.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #17 - $3.99
By writers Kyle Higgins & Ryan Ferrier & artists Hendry Prasetya & Bachan | Boom
It's been a time of great upheaval for the Power Rangers as they've been divided and forced to confront new revelations. Now the team is reunited as writer Kyle Higgins and artist Hendry Prasetya begin their next major story arc. It's a good time to jump on board the series and see what all the fuss is about. Especially with the recent news that the series is preparing to introduce the original, '60s-era team of Power Rangers.
Generation Gone #1 - $4.99
By writers Ales Kot & Andre Araujo & artist Andre Araujo | Image
Writer Ales Kot is one of the more unique and interesting voices working in comics today, so we're excited to see him teaming with Andre Araujo for a high-concept new series that's being billed as a mash-up of the British TV series Skins and M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable. An interesting combination, to be sure, and one that promises to speak to the pressures today's teens face growing up in an increasingly uncertain world.
Batman '66 Meets the Legion of Super Heroes #1 - $3.99
By writer Lee Allred & artist Mike Allred | DC
DC's latest Batman '66 team-up comic breaks the mold a bit. Rather than having the Dynamic Duo cross paths with the leads from another iconic '60s TV series, this book is introducing the Legion of Super Heroes into Batman '66's version of the DC Universe. Given how little the Legion have appeared in DC's main comic book universe lately, that alone is cause for excitement. But we're even more thrilled to be seeing such a classic, Silver Age-flavored take on the team. Best of all, Lee and Mike Allred are the ones bringing this crossover to life. The latter has delivered one great cover image after another over the years, but ti's too rare that we get to see him work his magic inside those covers.
