What is up Wednesday Warriors? Small week, so it is a great week for me to be on vacation. Here is what is on tap:

New Series/#1’s
Kid Venom #1 – Kid Venom gets his own series

Kill All Immortals #1 – Succession meets John Wick…with immortal Vikings. A thousand years ago, Viking explorer Erik the Red and his four adult children discovered a mysterious source of immortality. Now, in our modern world, they are an enigmatic billionaire family with a powerful banking empire. But when Erik’s only daughter, Frey Asvald, seeks to finally be free from her family’s influence, she must be prepared to reveal their supernatural secrets and confront her well-trained siblings in a deadly and epic struggle for power.
