Brave New Worlds

The Best Comic Shops in the Philadelphia Area!

Weekend Update!

Posted by BRiAN On June - 14 - 2014

It’s Father’s Day weekend and we’ve got all sorts of stuff that Nerd Dad’s love…so come on over to either BNW now and grab some gifts…also here’s what’ll be in both shops this week!

Everywhere else in the World right now has their eyes glued to the 2014 World Cup down in Brazil…but we in the States have been worrying more about the making of Star Wars episode VII! (Personally I’ve been glued to the computer/tv screen watching these games…I love it)

Oh yea the full new style visual list of what’s coming out this week is over here (and gets updated at some point in the future)


There’s very few new Number Ones for me to spotlight this time around but here we go:

STK640993[1](I love a good flip cover!)

Thomas Alsop #1 – Bringing readers great books from new talent has always been close to our hearts here at BOOM! Studios. Chris Miskiewicz and Palle Schmidt have created a warlock for these modern times, and we’re delivering them to the best audience in comics! Fans of John Constantine and Dr. Strange will love this new take on the magic-wielding hero who battles demons on the streets… and in his own mind.  Thomas has money and fame, but also the burden of a being this generation’s occult warrior. Can he survive the battles both within and without? Thomas Alsop is the current “Hand of the Island,” a title handed down from generation to generation. He guards Manhattan from evil, using his family’s prowess for magic. Being a thoroughly modern warlock, he deals with something even more evil than demons… reality television!  (W) Chris Miskiewicz (A/CA) Palle Schmidt

STK642029[1] STK644823[1](total babes)

Wicked & Divine #1-
Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as teenagers. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to start a new ongoing superhero fantasy with a beautiful oversized issue. Welcome to THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, where gods are the ultimate pop-stars. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever. (W) Kieron Gillen (A) Jamie McKelvie, Matthew Wilson (CA) Matthew Wilson, Jamie McKelvie


STK644824[1](also check out this Brian Lee O’Malley variant for Wicked & Divine #1)


STK641204[1](this is really like a #8 or something but whatever)

Witchfinder Mysteries of Unland #1 –
Edward Grey is sent to Hallam to investigate a mysterious death. Once there, he hears rumors about the mysterious Unland, the wetlands around the town, and the creatures that inhabit it. Grey’s skepticism vanishes when he encounters the monsters of Unland, and he realizes that Hallam is a place of secrets.   o Mike Mignola’s Witchfinder!   o Featuring art by Eisner winner Tyler Crook (Bad Blood, B.P.R.D.)!  o From the pages of Hellboy!  (W) Kim Newman, Maura McHugh (A) Tyler Crook (CA) Julian Totino Tedesco”

STK639400[1](for the money this is my favorite Cartoon Network show turned comic)

Regular Show Annual #1 –
WHY WE LOVE IT: REGULAR SHOW is hilarious and it’s character-driven
stories are something we love to be a part of! Short, bite-sized stories where anything could happen
with a bizarre twist-it’s an opportunity to set loose our favorite creators.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: You already love the characters and world of REGULAR SHOW,
so this is your chance to get a look at what Pops, Muscle Man, High Five Ghost, Benson,
and Skips are up to while Mordecai and Rigby are running wild!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Mordecai and Rigby find themselves at odds over a haunted pair of
sneakers, Pops might be lost inside a hidden labyrinth and he’s not quite sure how he got
there and Skips might finally have a problem that even he can’t solve. It’s going to be an
action-packed collection of stories! (W) Kevin Burkhalter & Various (A) Tessa Stone & Various (CA) Allison Strejlau

And here’s some other stuff worth checking out this week!:

Are you a toy guy or gal? Check out these awesome new figures based on the designs from the DC animated feature Justice League War!
STK642009[1](It’s baaaaaaaaaack and why aren’t you reading this yet?! don’t be a prude be a brimper!)
Sex Criminals #6-

After their narrow getaway from the Sex Police, Jon and Suzie are learning that this is “just the tip” of a massive iceberg. And what happens after the rush of a new relationship fades? Are they in love, lust, like, or just lame? Sexy fun times returns: You missed you so much, brimpers. (W) Matt Fraction (A/CA) Chip Zdarsky
STK641854[1](once again look at that cover!)
Daredevil #4-
The Owl is back! But he’s not working alone! Watch as the Daredevil team permanently redefines one of DD’s oldest enemies deadlier than ever! Plus–whatever happened to Foggy Nelson? (W) Mark Waid (A/CA) Chris Samnee
STK642008[1](anything having to do with Laika get’s me psyched!)
Manhattan Projects #21-
Ever wonder what happened to our deep space explorer for the Mars Project? Find out now as the Cosmohundin Laika boldly goes where no Russian dog has gone before. (W) Jonathan Hickman (A/CA) Ryan Browne
