Blood Squad Seven #1
Image Comics
Written by Joe Casey
Art by Paul Fry, Sonia Harris, & Francesco Segala
Letters by Rus Wooten
Cover Art by Fry

SERIES PREMIERE

Thirty years ago, Blood Squad Seven was America’s most popular superhero team. Its members were seen on television, on magazine covers, scoring million-dollar endorsement deals…. They were celebrities and they were everywhere.

But that was then… this is now. And so, a new generation of modern-day heroes takes up the mantle—or perhaps, the poisoned chalice—fulfilling a promise made decades ago: to be the heroes that a fractured America needs.

While deconstructions of superhero nostalgia typically center around the classic characters of the Silver Age, Blood Squad Seven will delve deep into ’90s comic book themes with this imagining of what would happen if heroes from that decade returned to action after a 30-year absence.

Release Date: May 22, 2024

PCS NOTES: This is the kind of superhero story that I want Joe Casey to be writing.


The Butcher’s Boy #1
Dark Horse Comics
Written by Landry Q. Walker
Art by Justin Greenwood
Cover Art by Greenwood

Deep within the backroads of the Pacific Northwest, an entire town fell victim to the brutal cleaver of the Butcher of La Perdita. But that was more than a hundred years ago, and in that time the generational nightmare of murder and meat has been reduced to morbid clickbait folklore for bored travelers to share online.

And yet some say the Butcher still haunts the streets at night, seeking fresh meat for his larder. A true Lovecraftian horror? Or just the feverish dreams of a mentally unstable serial killer. Six friends on a road trip are about to find out…

Release Date: May 22, 2024

Deadweights #1
Ahoy Comics
Written by Tyrone Finch
Art by Sebastián Piriz
Cover Art by Piriz

Is this another exciting new superhero universe? No—just a buddy comedy about two unlucky henchmen trying to make their way in the world! DEADWEIGHTS takes a hard look at what happens after the fight when the villains are tired of being villains, and the heroes aren’t as heroic as they want you to think. Written by Tyrone Finch (Swine, Station 19) and gorgeously drawn by Sebastián Piriz (We Ride Titans).

Hercules #1
Dynamite Entertainment
Written by Elliott Kalan
Art by George Kambadais
Cover Art by Kambadais

THE CHAMPION OF OLYMPUS RETURNS!

The world’s favorite demigod-turned-mortal is back, and he’s about to embark on the biggest adventure since The Odyssey!

The Greek gods don’t really get why Hercules chose a mortal life over the opportunity to join them on Mt. Olympus, but since he proved his mettle as a hero many times over, they’re happy to enlist his help with missions that require interventions in the earthly realm. So when Aphrodite grants an artist’s wish that his sculpture be brought to life, Herc gets the call to clean things up when the newly conscious artwork proves to be more bone-crushingly lively than expected!

But after discovering that the rogue statue is just misunderstood, and a little rambunctious (much like himself as a youth), Hercules returns to explain the situation to Aphrodite – only to find her temple empty and abandoned. Is the goddess of love just pouting, or is something more sinister afoot? If you know anything about classic mythology, you know it’s going to be the latter!

The immortal team of Emmy Award-winning writer ELLIOTT KALAN (The Daily Show) and Gargoyles artist GEORGE KAMBADAIS bring these legends of antiquity to hilarious new life in this brand-new ongoing series. This premier issue also features a pantheon of divinely talented cover artists, including KAMBADAIS, MATTEO LOLLI, FRANCESCO TOMASELLI, and more!

GET READY FOR A WHOLE NEW HERO’S JOURNEY!

Release Date: April 10, 2024

PCS NOTES: The concept that Dynamite has been using with these Disney movie character comics is good for comics and we look forward to this one. Continue reading “New Number Ones: New Comics Series and Specials Coming the Week of 4/10/24”
