Digital Comics Store Update (9th June 2010)
Nice to see you again! We’ve got a great update this week, & 4 free comics, so without further ado let’s see what’s in store.
Marvel release the first four issues of Ms. Marvel (2006). Follow the adventures of Marvel’s hottest lady as she battles the Brood! Don’t forget to catch up on some more Thor too, as issues 7 – 11 are out now.
IDW treat us to three new series. Arcane Legions is based on the board game [http://arcanelegions.com/] of the same name.
Like one of the plagues of Moses, an unearthly mist crept across the land, unleashing arcane powers upon an unsuspecting world. It started in the Middle East, and as the Earth turned and darkness fell across the globe the ghostly mists followed; within the span of 24 hours the world was cast into chaos. Now ancient Roman, Egyptian and Japanese gods and monsters battle in the war
Think Rome, but with monsters and sorcery thrown in (and less nudity).
The Last Unicorn is an adaption of the acclaimed novel by Peter S. Beagle. The unicorn in question, alone in her enchanted wood, discovers that she may be the last of her kind. She sets out on a journey to find her fellow unicorns. Along the way she encounters a magical cast of good and evil characters, in a world transformed by the lack of unicorns – and by the callous, selfish disillusionment of the king who has stolen them away. The book is beautifully illustrated in a manner that is perfect for the genre.
The Murder of King Tut adapts James Patterson’s best selling novel. A must for Egyptologists
IDW are also offering the following 4 comics at the new price of FREE:
- Star Trek Mirror Images #1
- Astro Boy Prequel #1
- The Ghoul #1 (One of my favourites)
- Dreamland Chronicles #1
Markosia release Eleventh Hour #1 which is the first instalment of a collection of ten standalone stories from the minds of the hottest rising talent in comics.
