Big month, with books coming from three different publishers. And the biggest of them all is the debut of my epic new creator-owned series for BOOM! Studios, which'll be drawn by a trio of wildly talented artists (Alexandre Tefenkgi, Leila del Duca and Nick Dragotta). More info on that over at my newsletter.
From Marvel, you get the oversized AVENGERS ASSEMBLE ALPHA, which kicks off the multiverse-shaking finale of my run on AVENGERS. There you'll find the modern-day Avengers facing the Prehistoric Avengers for the very first time, as drawn by the legendary Bryan Hitch (I'm still so giddy over that). And PUNISHER #7 begins Book Two of the King of Killers storyline, after the "Holy shit" ending of Book One.
Then from DC, there's a new collection of the JOKER'S ASYLUM one-shots, which includes the only issue of anything that I've ever written for the DCU.
Gather them all to impress your friends or show your enemies you mean fucking business.

Synopsis: • In this epic post-apocalyptic tale, Maceo and Mezzy have never met anyone like each other, and they’ll need all the help they can get to survive a planet ravaged by environmental catastrophe. • This epic trilogy–each issue overflowing with 30 story pages–spans a lifetime as philosophical differences tear at the threads holding Maceo and Mezzy together. • Will they, and the earth beneath their feet, ultimately be torn apart? New York Times bestselling, Eisner and Harvey Award-winning, and Marvel flagship writer Jason Aaron (Thor, The Avengers, Southern Bastards) launches his most ambitious creator-owned series to date with the first of three unique artistic partners – Eisner-winning artist Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian) — to take on a vision of the end of the world that’s brutal and nostalgic, whimsical and grounded… and ultimately, timeless.
