It’s gonna be a solid week in the Everything Else department! (As already evidenced by Poyo!) In particular, Dark Horse Comics is coming out strong with three or four titles that we’re very happy about. We’ll start with The Massive #2, the second issue of Brian Wood’s post-apocalyptic sci-fi series. The first issue was very intriguing, so we’ll have to see where it goers from here.
DARK HORSE COMICS

Hidden from pirates in the ice and fog of the Bering Sea, the crew of the Kapital weigh the risk of detection against the need to rescue their missing crewmates. Revealed are details about the events of the crash, including the Kapital’s resupply visit to an underwater Hong Kong and the new city that has, literally, grown out of the debris. Hyperdetailed world building meshed with forward-thinking social sci-fi.
Also from Dark Horse this week, we’ve got two legendary horror series coming your way with Eerie Comics #1 and Creepy Comics #9! Uncle Creepy’s been having all the fun in Dark Horse’s revival of classic Warren magazines, and now Cousin Eerie’s getting in on the action, too! The terrifying treasuries of sinister sci-fi and fearsome fantasy return with all-new stories to thrill and chill!
Finally, as far as Dark Horse is concerned, there are store favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 Freefall #11 and Conan the Barbarian #6! We’ve recommended both series from the jump and we proudly continue to do so.
We’re also curious about The Crow #1 from IDW. The spirit of the Crow is back, transfiguring Jamie Osterberg, an American studying in Tokyo and deeply in love with his Japanese girlfriend, Yumi… until the love of his life is stolen. The Crow must once more make the wrong thing right, but this time he might have to do it by killing his own true love!
Next up, Valiant comes in strong with two titles! Look for both Harbinger #2 and Bloodshot #1! So far, we’ve liked just about everything we’ve seen from the Valiant relaunch and we’re thinking Bloodshot is going to keep that trend going!

It’s the start of a new mission for one of comics’ all-time best-selling superheroes in Bloodshot #1 — the first issue of new ongoing series from acclaimed novelist Duane Swierczynski (Immortal Iron Fist, Birds of Prey) and the lethal artistic tag team of Manuel Garcia (Checkmate) and Arturo Lozzi (Immortal Weapons)!
Your name is Angelo Mortalli. Your brother is trapped behind enemy lines and on the verge of — no. That’s not right. Your name is Raymond Garrison. You’ve retired from the dangers of the field, but a desperate plea from your oldest friend plunges you into a vicious firefight that — no. That’s not right, either. You are Bloodshot. You are the shade of gray that freedom requires. The perfect confluence of military necessity and cutting-edge technology. A walking WikiLeaks that is a reservoir of dirty secrets that could set the world on fire. And you’ve just been captured.
