Tomorrow brings a ton of new releases to your local comic book store. Witness new stories from the early years of the Jedi order, Bucky Barnes striking out on his own, environmental apocalypse from the writer of DMZ, and scads of other groovy funnymags.
Ed Brubaker pens a new ongoing Winter Soldier series this week — here's our conversation with him about this book. There's also Dawn of the Jedi #0, the prequel to the upcoming "ancient days of the Jedi order" comic by Star Wars: Legacy writer John Ostander and illustrator Jan Duursema. You can read our interview about DOTJ here.
Also on the docket are Image's end-of-the-world book Alpha Girl , IDW Publishing's new Magic: The Gathering series, and the debut of Transformers: Robots In Disguise. Finally, check out our sneak peek of the Infestation 2: Transformers miniseries, which promises Cthulhubots.
In the latest issue of Dark Horse Presents, you can find the opening to the ecosystem meltdown miniseries The Massive — we talked with author Brian Wood about the design process behind that book yesterday. And in Venom, there's the beginning of a storyline starring a "new" New Fantastic Four (more on that here).
Another book we recently previewed was Paul Cornell's Stormwatch, which sees Martian Manhunter and Apollo square off against the evil psychic Daemonites.
You can also check out new issues of Action Comics, Fatale, Animal Man, OMAC, Swamp Thing, iZombie, The Boys, Sweet Tooth, Locke and Key: Clockworks, Defenders, Irredeemable, Punisher, and Uncanny X-Force.
