The one thing that sticks out, at least with me, is the sheer number of times this character has been given new origins or has be revamped (no pun intended) over the decades. To be fair though, most don’t deal with the future like Vampirella 2017 #1 does here. She has changed much over the decades, but has always remained a kick ass vampire that takes no crap from anyone.

Release Date: August 5, 2015

Tokyo. 1974. A rock band named Motherfather. Scratch that. Not A rock band, THE rock band. The seventies were a powerful time for musicians. Before the internet and before music television, live venues were the only place you could experience music. Sure, you could pop in an 8-track while driving or drop a vinyl record on the home phonograph but the true experience that is a live show was not something you could just watch. You had to be there. Rock musicians (no, almost all musicians) were almost deified in that era. I saw my first concert in 1977 and it was beyond my wildest dream. I continued to see band after band regularly until my thirties.

I tell you all this because if you missed this all then you have a need for a bit of background, an origin story if you will. But allow me to speak to This Damned Band #1 now that I’ve dropped some history on you.

The Death of Wolverine Banner

If you’ve been paying attention to Paul Cornell’s Wolverine series since he took over, you’ll already know that Wolverine has lost his famous healing factor and has been living without it. It looks like the “living” part of it will be coming to an end in September as Marvel Comics will release a four part weekly series titled “The Death of Wolverine.”

The mini-series will be written by comic’s newest wunderkind Charles Soule (She-Hulk, Swamp Thing, roughly ten billion other series) and will feature art by Steve McNiven (Civil War).

Check out McNiven’s cover for “The Death of Wolverine” and let us know what you think about this below.

Illustrated by Ryan Kelly, David Lapham, Mirko Colak and Andrea Mutti
Colored by Giulia Brusco and Lee Loughridge

Cover by Ryan Kelly
Vertigo Comics
Release Date: August 13, 2013
Cover Price: $16.99

Politics can be cutthroat — especially when you’re running for President. Imagine taking a candidate seriously when they not only believe in aliens, but are sure that they have been abducted themselves. Saucer Country: The Reticulan Candidate is the second and final volume of the Hugo Award nominated series from Vertigo. Written by Paul Cornell and illustrated by Ryan Kelly, the closing chapters of Saucer Country offer an out-of-this-world dose of conspiracy and political intrigue.

New Mexico Governor Arcadia Alvarado is running for President of the United States of America. Alvarado, however, has a problem: she and her ex-husband, Michael, believe that they were recently abducted by “aliens.” Struggling to find out the truth behind her beliefs, her campaign team must do everything in their power to get her into office as well as prevent her abduction story from reaching the public. As Election Day closes in, signs begin to lead to multiple “alien” factions controlling governments all over the world and it is unclear whether or not those otherworldly beings are hurting or actually ensuring her chances at the presidency.

The October GoD List

Each and every week “I am the tag team champions!” Henchman21 AND “NO! I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!!” MK2Fac3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, they looks forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and they’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of October 17, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Well, well, well, look who’s making his triumphant return? It’s me, it’s me, it’s the d-o-double-me. That’s right, you might have thought I was dead, and I might have been, but I’ve been resurrected by a magical coven of three unholy sorceresses who wish to remain nameless. But much like a Marvel Zombie, not only am I amongst the walking dead, but I’ve also got the magical power of watching loads of professional wrestling and reading comics. There’s been a lot that I’ve missed out on, but let’s get back in the spirit of Halloween with some great comics that might just spook your brain. Well, at least my picks will do that, Chris on the other hand, he does whatever he wants. And oh yeah, Batman is freaking awesome. Get out of my face. GoD List!!!!

Each and every week “Sheikie Baby!” MK2Fac3 and “Rowdy Roddy” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t?

I don’t know how much you know about how mirrors work, but that’s the way it goes, dollface. We’ve got a lot of books like Saucer Country, Queen Crab, Avengers Assemble, Saga, The World of Flashpoint featuring Batman, Womathology again, and so much more! Honey child, it’s a big week!

Saucer Country #1Saucer Country #1
Written by Paul Cornell

Colors by Giulia Brusco
Letters by Sal Cipriano
Cover by Ryan Kelly
Created by Paul Cornell & Ryan Kelly
Vertigo Comics
Release date: March 14, 2012
Price: $2.99

Although Vertigo Comics might have hooked me with Neil Gaiman’s classic Sandman series decades ago, I’ve stuck around all these years because the DC imprint’s line of mature comics has rarely disappointed. With gems like Brian K. Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man, Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles, and Bill Willingham’s Fables and its spin-offs, Vertigo has proven time and again that, plain and simple, they make awesome comics, ones that eventually become classics, embedded in our pop culture.

With Saucer Country, a new series created by writer Paul Cornell and artist Ryan Kelly, it looks like Vertigo has another winner on their hands.
