Marvel's Hottest Cosmic Characters Return With Brand-New #1's!

Marvel's best cosmic superheroes are making a come back, this week, in their very own on-going series with today's hottest artists and writers taking the reigns! 

 

CAPTAIN MARVEL #1

STK694187

Face front, true believers! The Captain has made her return and oh, how mighty it is. It's a bold new frontier for Carol Danvers as she soars to new heights in her greatest mission yet--leader of the all-new Alpha Flight space program. Yup, Alpha Flight. As earth's first line of defense, Carol and her team aim to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats. But can Carol be a soldier and a diplomat? Especially when an unknown enemy emerges that Carol can't quite punch. The superstar team behind Marvel's Agent Carter television series, Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, make their comics debut alongside the awesomely-talented Kris Anka.

The Hardcover For DKIII: The Master Race #2 is Finally Here!

STK690938

This week, after MUCH anticipation, DC Comics has finally released the hardcover edition of the second issue of the hit mini-series, DKIII: THE MASTER RACE! Get this one, and be six issues closer to getting the slipcase cover for your entire collection! Just like with issue #1, and every issue following, the cover for this hardback edition is a sketch version of the (1:500) variant cover by Jim Lee.

For those unaware, DC Comics' DKIII: THE MASTER RACE is the final piece to Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Trilogy", which started in 1985 with the classic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. It's an eight issue comic book mini-series, but in-between the releases of each soft-cover issue, DC Comics will release hardcover editions of each issue. Here, at Soundwave, if you make constant purchases of the hardcovers, when you get the eighth and final issue, you'll receive a free slipcase cover for your entire DKIII hardback collection.
The slipcase features artwork by the masterful Jim Lee, with the spines of the hardcovers completing the image. The individual hardback covers, themselves, feature sketch versions of the (1:500) Jim Lee variant covers. 

If you haven't gotten issue one in hard cover yet, we still have a few left over! But, they're sure to be sold out soon enough! And, if you just haven't been reading DKIII at all, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING!? Catch up! We've still got softcover copies of issues 1 and 2! This is the Batman title you DO NOT want to miss out on!

AMERICAN MONSTER #1

AFTERSHOCK COMICS

(W) Brian Azzarello (A/CA) Juan Doe

In a small Midwestern town, a large man with a horribly scarred face gets off a bus, and takes a room. He spooks the locals--nobody knows him--or do they? It's impossible to say be-cause he seemingly has no face. The man's intentions remain unknown, until he takes on a corrupt sheriff and the rural crew of racist arms dealers. The town's impression of the man changes, and he's seen as a hero...until his real intentions bubble to the surface. The man isn't there to end the gang, but to take it over. And he's just getting started.

STK692497

STK675454

MAN PLUS #1 (OF 4)

TITAN COMICS

(W/A/CA) André Araújo

The highly-anticipated Final Cut of the hit web-comics experience! From artist/writer André Lima Araújo (Avengers AI, Ultimate FF, Age of Apocalypse) comes this high-octane dystopian thriller in which technology rules with a heavy hand, cyborg strike teams are commonplace, and the lines between man and machine grow hazier every day.

PENCIL HEAD #1 (OF 5) (MR)

IMAGE COMICS

(W/A/CA) Ted McKeever

PENCIL HEAD is Ted McKeever's semi-autobiographical take on the whacked-out world of the comic book industry. Journey along as we witness protagonist Poodwaddle's trials and tribulations of working, and sustaining, his place in the absurd world of comics, where what happens behind the scenes is far more twisted, and bizarrely hilarious, than anything on the printed page.

STK694262

 

VALIANT SPOTLIGHT:

WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #3

STK694285

Torn from the world he once knew, Gilad's bone-breaking journey back to Earth and the people he was sworn to protect takes a brutal turn!

Putting all he holds dear on the line to save our world's future, the Eternal Warrior prepares to confront the most nefarious adversary of all - but the cost of victory may be too steep. Valiant superstars Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and Raúl Allén (Hawkeye) continue the Eternal Warrior's perilous quest into the unknown reaches of the Valiant Universe!
