New Releases: Reborn Heroes, Drunk Tonys & a Couple of Feisty Old Fight-Buddies
Updated: Dec 8, 2022
Hey, I wrote some comics about punching, because it's cheaper than therapy, and they're in stores this week, waiting patiently for you to welcome them into your home, like the creepy old vampire who owns a video store in Lost Boys.
In AVENGERS FOREVER, "The Pillars" arc continues, focusing on the multiversal myriad of troubled Tony Starks who all seem to be grappling with similar debilitations.
Book Two of "The King of Killers" kicks off in PUNISHER with a showdown between Frank and his old existential sparring partner, Daredevil. These two have butted heads plenty of times before, but this time the stakes and the particulars of the fight seem quite a bit different, especially for the newly ordained Fist of the Beast.
And the hardcover omnibus of HEROES REBORN also hits shelves, collecting the entire event series along with all of its wildly fun tie-ins.. I wrote HEROES REBORN during some dark times as an invocation to joy and a celebration of the love of comics that has fueled me since I was a kid. And it was brought to life by a truly incredible arrays of artists. All details and previews below.
