New Marvel and Indie Comic Book Releases for Wednesday, March 17th!
Welcome to the high fantasy world of Tangea! A land where wizards and warriors battle
dragons in dark dank dungeons! Where thieves pillage ancient ruins and priests answer the au-dible words of their great gods!
Welcome to Chicago, Illinois! Where the magical items from Tangea are being traded on the black market and are messing everything up.
Now, a group of Tangea adventurers must go undercover in our modern world to stop artifacts and monsters from falling into the wrong hands. But how will they fare in a world without
wizards and warriors? A world without heroes?
From Tim Seeley (DARK RED, BRILLIANT TRASH) and Freddie E. Williams II (HeMan/Thundercats, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) comes BEQUEST, a real-world fantasy tale.
HP LOVECRAFT DREAM QUEST OF UNKNOWN
(W) H. P. Lovecraft (A/CA) I. N. J. Culbard
Obsessed with revisiting the sunset city of his dreams, Randolph Carter leaves the humdrum confines of reality behind, traveling into a vivid dreamworld where anything is possible. But while Carter draws closer to his goal-the mysterious Kadath, home to the gods themselves-another force, dark and brooding, is watching with plans of its own. An epic fantasy mixing adventure, peril, and wonder in equal parts, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath explores themes of memory and forbidden knowledge through the prism of H.P. Lovecraft’s boundless imagination.
INVADER ZIM QUARTERLY ZIMS GREATEST PLAN #1
(W) Sam Logan (A/CA) Fred Stresing
ZIM hasn’t come up with a new scheme in weeks – not because he’s out of ideas, but because of the constant distractions. (Dib’s endless hounding! Gir’s endless nonsense! Minimoose’s deeply, deeply judgmental stares!) Because everyone else is the problem, ZIM inserts himself in a sensory deprivation tank, where his genius brain will be free to concoct the ULTIMATE PLAN in undisturbed isolation. He emerges six weeks later to a world completely changed. Everyone has fallen victim to a digital self-improvement program that seems to be subliminally conditioning them. And to ZIM’s horror, the delightful digital mascot for the program is a cute little alien named “Zip” that looks extremely similar to ZIM’s undisguised form.
JIM HENSONS STORYTELLER TRICKSTERS #1
(W) Jonathan Rivera (A) Jade Zhang (CA) Peach Momoko

But when Anansi becomes the keeper of all stories, he hordes them until his son confronts them to free the knowledge that could change the world!

ORPHAN & FIVE BEASTS #1 (OF 4)
(W) James Stokoe (A/CA) James Stokoe
A brand-new kung-fu epic from James Stokoe, the creator behind Orc Stain and Aliens: Dead Orbit!
Spurred on by her master’s dying words, the adopted warrior “Orphan Mo” seeks to find and kill five former disciples who now threaten the land with corruption from their demonic powers. Part Five Deadly Venoms and part surreal grindhouse, James Stokoe brings his knack for ultra-detailed fantasy imagery and over-the-top violence to this classic tale of revenge.
“His artwork is astonishingly detailed, with an infectious, monstrous energy and dynamism that needs to be experienced by every fan of comic books.”-SyFy Wire

(W) Kyle Higgins (A/CA) Marcello Costa

Meanwhile, Valkyrie manages to track down the long-absent Odin, but he is not the same All-Father he once was. Can Odin rise to the occasion and help save his son and Asgard? And who will help Lady Sif and the others in Dimension Blood? Surprises abound as the gods face the fight of their eternal lives in the penultimate chapter of “Prey”!

TRIALS OF ULTRAMAN #1 (OF 5)
(W) Kyle Higgins, Mat Groom (A) Francesco Manna, Eduardo Ferigato, Gurihiru (CA) Art Adams
Ultraman narrowly averted a catastrophe decades in the making. The world was saved – but, also, forever changed.
Now…come the consequences.
Much of the populace regard their defenders with suspicion. Enemies hide in plain sight, and even those closest to Shin Hayata don’t necessarily have faith in the Giant of Light. But at last, a long-thought-lost comrade has mysteriously returned!
That’s a good thing…right?
The RISE is over. The training wheels are off, and the stakes have never been higher. THE TRIALS OF ULTRAMAN begin here!
ULTRAMEGA BY JAMES HARREN #1
(W) James Harren (A/CA) James Harren, Dave Stewart
A cosmic plague has spread, transforming everyday people into violent, monstrous kaiju. Only the Ultramega – three individuals imbued with incredible powers – hold the line against this madness. Their battles level cities and leave untold horror in their wake. Now, the final reckoning approaches for the Ultramega… but is this a war they can even win?
Fight monsters and stand with humanity in this new Skybound original from the greatest artist of his generation, JAMES HARREN (RUMBLE, BPRD) and Eisner Award-winning colorist DAVE STEWART. Each issue is extra-sized, with a 60-page debut that can barely contain its giant heroes, creatures, and devastation!
REGISTER PITCH: The high-impact adventure of EXTREMITY, but with the kaiju-esque monster action scenes of Pacfic Rim.
(W) Ben Percy (A) Garry Brown (CA) Joshua Cassara
