With Halloween quickly approaching, and new comics happening each week, I wanted to share with you my very bias favorite 5 comics to be released next week. So in no particular order…
MISTY & SCREAM!
Pre-Order: 09/30/2020 | Releases: 10/14/2020
Just in time for Hallowe’en, Misty & Scream returns with another 48-page anthology stuffed with scares to create a new generation from British horror fans!
The Prince of Darkness comes face to face with an old foe in ‘The Dracula Files’ from Cavan Scott and Vincenzo Riccardi; Black Beth’s quest for vengeance continues thanks to the fevered minds of Alec Worley and DaNi; and Kek-W and Simon Coleby reveal the ghoulish World War I air ace, Black Max, attempting to cross back over into the world of the living!
Plus there’s three frightfully fresh stories to shock your socks off – ‘Thief of Senses’ by Maura Mchugh and Robin Henley; ‘Bumps in the Night’ by Olivia Hicks and John Lucas, and ‘The Aegis’ by Kristyna Baczynski and Mary Safro!
So lock your doors and hide under the duvet as this is the spookiest read you’ve encounter this Hallowe’en!
BATMAN/SUPERMAN ANNUAL #1
On a dark and stormy night in the fifth dimension, two mortal foes meet to settle an age-old question once and for all: In a fight between Batman and Superman, who would win? The combatants? Mr. Mxyzptlk and Bat-Mite. And in this battle for the ages, you will find out if a fifth-dimensional imp can bleed. It’s all in this, the ultimate slugfest between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel—plus a whole lot of magic!
