New job. New identity. New life... right? Will the sudden reappearance of a former Renegade bring Faith's newfound heights crashing back down to Earth?

She's an intrepid reporter by day and an alien conspiracy hunting super hero by night - so the last thing Faith Herbert needed was her ex-boyfriend and one-time teammate Torque back in the picture. But he is. Does life have a "dislike" button?

Rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and sensational artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells) continue Faith's landmark solo series debut!

PART ONE OF "ANIMAL HOUSE," A CROSSOVER WITH HOWARD THE DUCK!
•  Squirrel Girl and Howard will team up against an enemy that neither Squirrel Girl (who has defeated Galactus) or Howard the Duck (who has defeated... uh... well, listen, I'm sure he's got other qualities) could take down on their own!
•  Will they fight over a trivial misunderstanding? Will they band together against a common enemy? Will Squirrel Girl say "duck!" to mean "lower your head" but Howard will misinterpret it as a call for his attention, leading him to get hit on the head by something?
•  At least ONE of those three questions will be answered with a "yes" in this issue!
•  CONCLUDED NEXT MONTH IN HOWARD THE DUCK #6!
Rated T

Rated T


(W/A/CA) Jimmie Robinson
"Street Hero"
A local street hood surviving in a crime-infested ghetto has his life turned around when an ancient magic grants him superhuman powers-except his ability only activates in an upscale white community that may not accept him.

Gritty, racially charged street-wise drama!


(W) Tom King (A) Barnaby Bagenda (CA) Trevor Hutchinson
The explosive revelations of issue #9 have turned all eyes toward Vega, and the Citadel must act fast to crush rebellion and maintain control over the most valuable resource in the cosmos. The Viceroy's first target? Karna, the insurgent, jungle homeworld of the Omega Man by whom he feels most betrayed: Tigorr, his own wayward son. The epic final act of DC's critically acclaimed space opera begins here!


(W) Bryan Edward Hill (A) Isaac Goodhart (CA) Linda Sejic
As Maggie recovers from Molly's attach, Mark and Laura Shiffron make a plan to punish and contain Molly, despite her protection order from the FBI, an FBI that Special Agent Bremble is beginning to turn against Eden itself... With the possible help of Mark's father, Issac.


(W) Lee Bermejo (A) Alessandro Vitti, Lee Bermejo (CA) Lee Bermejo
  A whole generation has grown up since the Great Quake, and people like Trix and her brother Johnny don't know what life was like before New Angeles crumbled. Suffice to say, they've learned how to make the most of living inside the walled city, and particularly within their 'hood. Johnny is the leader of the Kings of HelL.A., a street gang ready to protect its turf against any and all comers-though Johnny may have taken things too far when he crossed Leonard, a former Suicider known as the Coyote. Things are about to get a whole lot more violent.
Meanwhile, Trix is finding love in the arms of Johnny's best friend, and their star-crossed romance is going to bring trouble of an entirely different kind.
The second chapter in Lee Bermejo's acclaimed SUICIDERS series shows us a completely different side of life in New Angeles. Joining Bermejo for KINGS OF HELL.A. is artist Alessandro Vitti (RED LANTERNS), whose kinetic style perfectly fits SUICIDERS' brutal landscape.

ADVANCE REVIEW: 'Winnebago Graveyard' #1 by Steve Niles, Alison Sampson, and Stéphane Paitreau

Steve Niles and Alison Sampson have arrived to disrupt your bedtime. What happens when an American family traveling on vacation finds themselves stranded in a small town with a sinister secret? The answer is a whole lot of creepy.


WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD #1 (OF 4) Story: Steve Niles Art / Cover: Aditya Bidikar, Alison Sampson, Jordie Bellaire, Stéphane Paitreau Variant Cover: Mingjue Helen Chen Published: June 14, 2017 Diamond ID: APR170724 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Niles wastes no time in setting the tone of  this limited horror series 'Winnebago Graveyard.' A couple is abducted by people in hooded robes and are sacrificed during some kind of satanic ceremony that gives birth to something I can't explain here. You'll have to see it for yourselves. Then we're introduced to our protagonists, the dysfunctional family traveling via the titular Winnebago. They make the same mistake every person in a horror does, they stay at the creepiest locations instead …

REVIEW: 'Samaritan: Veritas' #1 by Matt Hawkins, Atilio Rojo, and Troy Peteri

Born out of The Tithe, 'Samaritan: Veritas,' takes on a whole new target as hacker Samantha Copeland is on the run and looking for revenge. It's a thrilling new chapter from Top Cow's Edenverse written by Matt Hawkins with art from Atilio Rojo.


SAMARITAN #1 Story: Matt Hawkins Art / Lettering / Cover: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Published: May 24, 2017 Diamond ID: MAR170694 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Tithe found Samaritan taking on nefarious mega-churches and this time the only things more corrupt are the U.S. government and military contractors. The President is in Samantha's crosshairs but she's also a hunted woman using all her hacking skills and the resources of the dark web to counter her pursuers. It's this complex cat-and-mouse game that Hawkins unfolds while also providing Samantha's background for new readers. Hawkins does a delicate balancing act adding exposition with flashbacks while moving the story forward in the prese…

REVIEW: 'Magnus' #1 by Kyle Higgins, Jorge Fornes, and Chris O'Halloran

Dynamite keeps reinventing classic Gold Key Comics characters and their latest iteration of Magnus, Robot Fighter, is neither a man nor a robot fighter. What 'Magnus' #1 is, it's a fascinating piece of speculative fiction from Kyle Higgins and Jorge Fornes that is smart, immersive, and thought-provoking.

Thanks to shows like Westworld and Black Mirror, science fiction is sexy again and it's not just aliens and space travel either. Instead, the th…

REVIEW: 'Romulus' #4 by Bryan Hill, Nelson Blake II, and Kevin Lennertz

Ashlar finds herself in the belly of the beast. She's got to go through Achilles to try and rescue Nicholas from the clutches of the leader of The Order of Romulus. Will the end of this story arc be the end of Ashlar?


ROMULUS #4 Story: Bryan Hill Art: Nelson Blake II, Kevin Lennertz Letterer: Deron Bennett Published: May 31, 2017 Diamond ID: NOV160639 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
★★★★☆ (4/5)
After an unexpected break between issues, Bryan Hill and Nelson Blake II are back with the conclusion of the series first arc. Ashlar's thirst for revenge hasn't lessened, she's still determined as ever to kill the people responsible for her mother's death. Hill has kept her consistent, single-minded in her approach with a few annoyances along the way. Yet, she feels responsible for saving Nicholas from The Order as well. Her journey comes to this final showdown and it doesn't disappoint.
Without giving away the exciting conclusion, Hill delivers a tense confrontation that fl…
