First a PSA - Bank Holidays and delays :/ - We have a raft of bank holidays coming up which will delay deliveries this month - we have also been told the delivery to the distributor this week also had a significant amount of water damage so some titles will not release on time and some will be allocated :(
Plus don't forget we are running a coronation special Free Comic Book Day this weekend (both Saturday and Sunday depending on whether you are a Roundhead or Cavalier ;)
Now onto this week's new starts!
CARNAGE REIGNS ALPHA #1 - CARNAGE VS. MILES MORALES!
CLETUS KASADY IS BACK and badder than ever. With his soul trapped within the Extrembiote Armor created by Tony Stark during KING IN BLACK, Cletus has the means to level an untold amount of chaos and, well, carnage on New York City and the entire Marvel Universe. But like any good Tony Stark invention, the Extremis coursing through Cletus' symbiotic veins needs POWER, and that means Cletus is HUNGRY. Good thing Brooklyn's very own SPIDER-MAN is there to stand in his way! If he survives their first encounter, that is.
PEACEMAKER TRIES HARD #1 - Having earned his release from the Suicide Squad, Peacemaker wants to try and do normal superhero stuff for a change. Unfortunately everyone, including the bad guys, thinks he sucks at superhero stuff. But when busting up a terrorist ring introduces Christopher Smith to the cutest thing to ever walk (awkwardly) on four legs, he finds the unconditional love he's been denied his whole life. That is, until the dog is kidnapped right out from under him by a super-villain who has some very un-super-heroic plans for Peacemaker's brand of ultraviolence. Will he help an infamously unstable super-powered criminal steal the world's most valuable-and dangerous-DNA? Honestly, Christopher's pretty lonely, so it probably just depends on how nicely they ask... Breakout writer Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place, Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton) and art legend Steve Pugh (Preacher Special: Saint of Killers, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) deliver a brutal and hilarious take on DC's biggest P.O.S. that will bust guts, break bones, and melt hearts!
STARSIGNS #1 - The constellations of the zodiac fall to earth, granting twelve ordinary people from very different walks of life the superhuman powers of the Starsigns. But each of them is about to learn that power always comes with a price...
Eisner-winning writer SALADIN AHMED (Miles Morales) and sci-fi star artist MEGAN LEVENS (Star Trek) launch an exciting new series about astrology, superpowers, and diverse found family, in the tradition of X-Men and Heroes.
GROOT #1 - MONSTER, HERO, GUARDIAN...GROOT!
Before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy... before the Grootfall... young Groot lived a life of tranquility on his serene home world. But when monstrous invaders attack his planet, Groot must accept his heroic destiny! Will this destiny lead him to come to blows with a young Kree soldier by the name of Mar-Vell?
Join writer Dan Abnett (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) and artist Damian Couceiro (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2099, X-FORCE) as they reveal never-before-seen moments of Groot's origin and first adventure through the galaxy!
