New Comics Last Week

Marvel is kicking off the new year with many new selections this week. Come early on Wednesday to make sure you grab all the new #1s before they’re gone. As always, check out the highlights below or click here to see our full list of new releases this week.

Squirrel Girl #1

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1

Publisher: MARVEL COMICS
(W) Ryan North (A/CA) Erica Henderson

Wolverine. Deadpool. Doctor Doom. Thanos. There’s one hero that’s beaten them all (really!) – and now she’s got her own ongoing series! (Not that she’s bragging.)That’s right, you asked for it, you got it, it’s SQUIRREL GIRL! (She’s also starting college this semester.) It’s the start of a brand-new series of adventures starring the nuttiest and most upbeat super hero in the world!

 Ant-Man #1

Ant-Man #1

Publisher: MARVEL COMICS
(W) Nick Spencer (A) Ramon Rosanas (CA) Mark Brooks

Scott Lang has never exactly been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best ANT-MAN — and the last guy invented Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s saying something.

But when the SUPERIOR IRON MAN calls with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Scott’s going to get a chance to turn it all around and be the hero he’s always dreamed of being. Sure he’s been to prison! Sure he’s been through a messy divorce! Sure he’s been, um… dead. But this time is different! This time nothing is gonna stop the astonishing ANT-MAN!

 Hawkeye vs Deadpool #4

Hawkeye vs Deadpool #4 (of 4)

Publisher: MARVEL COMICS
(W) Gerry Duggan (A) Matteo Lolli (CA) James Harren

It’s been a wild ride, but we made it to this loony limited’s FINAL ISSUE! You wouldn’t want to be the only one on the block who doesn’t know how the story ends, wouldja? A BOMBASTIC conclusion to an EXPLOSIVE adventure of the DYNAMITE team of Hawkeye (Barton), Hawkeye (Bishop), and Deadpool (not Hawkeye). Explosions.

 Wolverines #1

Wolverines #1

Publisher: MARVEL COMICS
(W) Charles Soule (A/CA) Nick Bradshaw

From the pages of DEATH OF WOLVERINE, THE LOGAN LEGACY and the WEAPON X PROGRAM!
Wolverine may be dead…but what will happen to his mortal remains, encased in something as rare and powerful as Adamantium? The battle for control of this valuable artifact has begun! But why does it matter so much… and why is a war brewing in Logan’s name? Death is on the books for a dozen heroes and villains, and Mystique is playing chess with them all, including X-23, Sabretooth, Daken, Lady Deathstrike and more! Murder, mutilation, betrayal and trauma…none will be spared!

 Swamp Thing 38

Swamp Thing #38

Publisher: DC COMICS
(W) Charles Soule (A/CA) Jesus Saiz

SWAMP THING has been one of DC’s most consistently great titles for years now. If you haven’t been reading this one, you’ve been missing out. Here’s the official blurb from DC:

“The Machine Queen” part 4! It’s all-out action as Swamp Thing launches a counterattack against the Machine Army! Plus, Anton Arcane brings back the Un-Men in the most gruesome way possible!

 IXth Generation

IXth Generation #1

Publisher: IMAGE COMICS
(W) Matt Hawkins (A/CA) Stjepan Sejic

In the future there is no more natural death, no needs unfilled and everything you could ever want is yours… as long as you’re one of the ones chosen to live in this new Utopia and you’re willing to subjugate yourself to these new self-proclaimed gods with “IX”s emblazoned on them.

Do the ends truly justify the means? Is a utopia built on genocide worth the price? Aphrodite, Velocity, Hades, and the other Nines establish fiefdoms in this new world and attempt to rule. Their internal clashes have escalated, but they are forced to put that aside as they face off against the relentless hordes of the Darkness. The sins of the past have come to claim those who would pretend to be Gods. The cybernetic future established in APHRODITE IX and CYBER FORCE finally comes face-to-face with the supernatural ARTIFACTS side of the Top Cow universe!

MLP Friends Forever 13 and of course…

My Little Pony Friends Forever #13

Publisher: IDW PUBLISHING
(W) Jeremy Whitley (A) Agnes Garbowska (CA) Amy Mebberson

When Sweetie Belle gets sick, it’s up to big sis Rarity to entertain Babs Seed on a visit to Manehattan. The only problem is the two seemingly have nothing in common! Will the two find a way to overcome their differences and find a way to have fun in the big city?
