This is a great new series. A slow build up so I’m anticipating great things from this series.
This is a new number one coming out from Image Comics with Ales Kot writing about the Vietnam War. As a war story junkie, it’s on the check out list as I have yet to read the full issue, from the preview pages I’ve gathered here for you it’s promising.
Brubaker and Phillips are a dream team when it comes to storytelling. Brubaker is the master narrative writer while Phillips gritty dark and heavy outline approach does what he does best from pane to pane.
Captain Marvel #18 is in stores at the end of this month and Captain Marvel takes the title and mantle as the new Accuser in the big Empyre event (happens in Empyre #2, in which some are trying to claim the 2nd print is the one to grab as it was likely under ordered and FOC has already passed).
But what most aren’t talking about is who she discovers when she is tasked on her first mission as the Accuser to go and you know, Accuse.

I don’t know about the rest of you all but as I was browsing FOC books for this Monday, I ran across this Jaws Movie Poster Statue that is pretty damn awesome if you ask me of the iconic movie poster I think a huge majority of the world would be able to identify when seen.
FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering.
