This week has a distinctly indie theme with lots of interesting new titles being released by the smaller publishers - so this bulletin is going to focus on those rather than the big two(who are still pushing out some great books this week but don't need us to shout about them).
Blackbird #1 has art from upcoming superstar Jen Bartel and writing by Sam Humphries - In this neo-noir fantasy, Nina Rodriguez is positive that a secret magic world ruled by ruthless cabals is hiding just beneath the veneer of Los Angeles. The problem: everyone thinks she's crazy. The bigger problem: she's not crazy - she's right.
Battlestar Galactica is 40 and we get a new series from Dynamite to celebrate! Commander Adama and the remnants of humanity discover a second fugitive fleet, fleeing a different mortal enemy. Can the two armadas join forces, making common cause against the dreaded Cylons?
Check out Dead Rabbit #1! Back in the '90s, DEAD RABBIT was a prolific Boston stick-up man and hoodlum, until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth: he retired to be with the love of his life. Now he's back in the mask to save her, but no one-not his wife, the mafia, or the cops-is happy that he's out of retirement.
Jook Joint #1 brings us some southern style horror in the vein of Rednecks - Mahalia runs the hottest spot in all of 1950s New Orleans. The Jook Joint keeps the jazz popping, people bopping... and the women? The women are to die for....
We have long evangelised the Nameless City series from Faith Erin Hicks and Jordie Bellaire and the final volume, The Divided Earth, is now out :D - Perfect for both young and older readers the whole series is a joy from start to finish.
Similarly suitable for all ages, Rainbow Brite #1 comes to comics and brings a little colour to your life! Wisp and Willow are best friends who live in a small town. They are inseparable, until one night Wisp discovers something is stealing the colour from the world!
