Happy NCBD!!! A couple of new series this week: Brothers Dracula (AfterShock), Robocop Citizens Arrest (Boom), & Dead Hand (Image). They are all spotlighted below and you can find our full reading list below.
I am particularly excited to check out Robocop Citizens Arrest. I am HUGE fan of writer Brian Wood. I am totally in love with his Briggs Land series and i only wish there were more issues in that series to read.
Brothers Dracul #1
Writer: Cullen Bun Artist: Mirko Colak Cover Artist: Szymon Kudranski
The legend of Vlad the Impaler is the stuff of nightmares. The inspiration for the most iconic of monsters-Dracula-Vlad tortured and murdered thousands of victims. But what turned him into such a depraved killer? The truth lies in his teenage years, when Vlad and his brother Radu were held hostage by the Ottoman Empire. During this time, the brothers learned many things-archery, riding, the art of combat, matters of court…and how to stalk and slay vampires.
From writer Cullen Bunn (DARK ARK, UNHOLY GRAIL, X-Men Blue, Deadpool, Venom) and artist Mirko Colak (UNHOLY GRAIL,The Punisher) comes a tale of brothers and blood that HAD to be told at AfterShock Comics.
Robocop Citizens Arrest #1
Writer: Brian Wood Artist: Jorge Coelho Cover Artist: Nimit Malavia
I am really looking forward to reading this book and honestly anything by Brian Wood. Briggs Land was one of my favorite books of 2017!
Brian Wood, the visionary writer behind DMZ and Briggs Land , and Jorge Coelho ( Venom, Rocket Racoon ) present a provocative vision of a future where justice is crowdsourcedc and lethal. It’s been decades since the RoboCop program first began. Corporations have taken over the schools and the government.and law enforcement is the biggest private contract of all. Traditional police forces no longer exist as all citizens are encouraged.and rewarded.to spy on their neighbors. There is only one authority on the streets: ROBOCOP.
Dead Hand #1
Writer: Kyle Higgins Artist: Stephen Mooney Cover Artist: Stephen Mooney
“COLD WAR RELICS,” Part One: Carter Carlson was a highly decorated operative during the Cold War. But in the fall of 1991, as the Soviet Union collapsed, Carter discovered a secret that not only changed his life… but also altered the course of history. Now, as the mysterious “Dead Hand” threatens to end the world once again, the only thing standing in its way is the relationship between an old spy and a little boy.
