Swordquest #1

Writer: Chad Bowers, Chris Sims
Art: Ghostwriter X

The Atari Age returns to comics with the most unexpected story of the year: SwordQuest! In 1984, Peter Case was on his way to being crowned champion of SwordQuest, set to win the last of four contests and lay claim to a golden sword worth over $50,000! But when the game was discontinued, Peter found himself without a game to finish. Now, over thirty years later, Peter’s stuck in a different kind of game entirely — the game of life, and he’s losing fast...

Dresden Files: Dog Men #1

Writer: Jim Butcher, Mark Powers
Art: Diego Galindo

Jim Butcher’s worldwide bestselling Dresden Files saga continues in this original limited series!

Harry Dresden is a man on the edge-and that is something that can be dangerous to friend and foe alike. He’s been drafted by a senior member of the White Council of Wizards to investigate a series of murders in rural Mississippi. As always, there’s more afoot than is immediately apparent. The question is, will Harry’s state of mind keep him from seeing it, and will his actions lead him into direct conflict with the wizard who’s depending on his help?

I’ve never read the Dresden Files novels, watched the TV Show or read any of the comic adaptations...

Magnus #1

Writer: Kyle Higgins, Chuck Wendig
Art: Jorge Fornes, lvaro Sarraseca
Genre: Action/Adventure

Do humans dream of owning electric sheep? Artificial intelligences, rather than becoming our overlords, have settled into an uneasy symbiosis with humanity – they work for us as our colleagues and servants, earning vacation time they spend in a boundless digital universe running on human-maintained server farms.

But not all AIs are cool with the deal. Enter Magnus – a human psychologist tasked with navigating both worlds in order to bring recalcitrant AIs back into productive society…

BONUS TUROK STORY! The all-new saga of the all-new Turok continues: He’s a man on a mission, possessed, and he won’t let anyone or anything get in his way!

Red Team: Double Tap, Center Mass #9

Cover A: Dan Panosian
Writer: Garth Ennis
Art: Craig Cermak

Out of options and up against the wall, Eddie and Trudy come up with a drastic plan to finish Eric Nightingale once and for all. But Red Team’s track record is not good when it comes to the ultimate sanction-and the Nightingale family proves to still have teeth. Our heroes discover the terrible true cost of stepping outside the law, in the final episode of Double Tap, Center Mass.

Well, if you are just coming into this story with this issue, that would be a bad idea.  I honestly would suggest starting at issue 1 or waiting for the trade, but that’s what I’ve been saying all along this would be such an awesome read as a collected story...

Regression #1

Story: Cullen Bunn
Art / Cover: Danny Luckert, Marie Enger

Adrian is plagued by ghastly waking nightmares. To understand and possibly treat these awful visions, Adrian reluctantly agrees to past life regression hypnotherapy. As his consciousness is cast back through time, Adrian witnesses a scene of horrific debauchery and diabolism. Waking, he is more unsettled than before, and with good reason—something has followed him back. Adrian descends into a world of occult conspiracy, mystery, reincarnation, and insanity from which there is no escape.

I would say that the best part of this issue is artist Danny Luckert.  With all the horror and paranoia going on in this first issue, Danny’s organic and almost kinetic, frantic art really conveys the mood...
