"What's on the Rack?" Issue #14: New Comic Book Day 8th April

Yes, we know. New Comic Book Day is Wednesday, and the 8th is a Thursday. That's what happens when you have back to back Bank Holidays - everything runs two days late. New stock will be arriving with us on Thursday instead of Tuesday this week, so we'll be running a bit behind.


Anyway. However late it is, it's a good rack this week:


You can check out the whole thing by clicking here.


If you're in a hurry, or just looking for a recommendation for something new, check out our highlights below!


BEASTS OF BURDEN: OCCUPIED TERRITORY #1

The eight-time Eisner Award- winning comic book series blending fantasy and humour returns in a historical adventure blending Japanese and Western occult!


An elder member of the occult-battling pack of Wise Dogs recalls a harrowing mission-in U.S-occupied Japan after World War II, a mysterious curse creates an army of crawling, disembodied heads which threatens to overwhelm the region.


Emrys and a team of canine companions attempt to solve the mystery, bringing them into conflict with shape-changing tanuki, evil oni, and a horde of vengeful demons.




GEIGER #1

Industry heavyweights GEOFF JOHNS (Superman, Green Lantern, Batman: Three Jokers) and GARY FRANK (Superman, Supergirl, The Incredible Hulk) of DC's DOOMSDAY CLOCK reteam for what will be one of the most anticipated new series of 2021!


This mind blowing new series will take local comic shops by storm in April from Image Comics. Who are the scavengers of a dying earth?


GEIGER is set in the years since a nuclear war ravaged the planet, desperate outlaws battle for survival in a world of radioactive chaos. Out past the poisoned wasteland lives a man even the Nightcrawlers and Organ People fear.


Some name him Joe Glow, others call him The Meltdown Man.


But his name… is Geiger.



GREEN LANTERN #1

As this new Green Lantern series begins, the newly formed United Planets and the Guardians of the Universe hold an intergalactic summit to decide who can best serve and protect the cosmos from danger.


With the majority of Green Lanterns called back to Oa, John Stewart arrives alongside Teen Lantern Keli Quintela, whose powerful gauntlet could be one of the most powerful and unstable weapons in the universe. With the entire landscape of the universe in flux, is this the end of the Green Lantern Corps...or a new beginning?




INKBLOT #7

NEW STORY ARC!


Oblivious to the profound grief it has caused the Seeker, the cat travels to Earth where it befriends a young sorceress named Eliza Proctor.


Eliza throws a party with her friends to celebrate the beginning of summer, but it's ruined by a monster tearing through the void!












MAGIC THE GATHERING #1

* A new beginning for the pop culture phenomenon of Magic starts here from Jed MacKay (Marvel's Black Cat) and Ig Guara (Marvel's Ghost-Spider), perfect for new readers and long time fans.


* Across the vast Multiverse, those gifted with a "spark" can tap into the raw power of Magic and travel across realms -they are Planeswalkers.


* When coordinated assassination attempts on Guildmasters Ral Zarek, Vraska and Kaya rock the city of Ravnica and leave Jace Belleren's life hanging in the balance, a fuse is lit that threatens not just these three Guilds, but the entire plane of Ravnica.


* Now these three must covertly infiltrate the wild plane of Zendikar and form a tenuous alliance to uncover why the targets of the assassins have all been Planeswalkers...


* ...which will lead them straight to one of the most enigmatic characters in Magic history!



THE NEXT BATMAN: SECOND SON

A new miniseries by Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley and artists Tony Akins and Travel Foreman begins!


Seriously - that's as much as we can tell you...
















THE PATRON #1

Thirty years ago, the world watched in horror as THE PATRON, a hero sent as humanitarian aid from a different dimension, went punch for punch with WOE, a primordial beast and a perfect match for our mighty protector. In the end, hero and villain alike fell…but the Patron returned - and continues to defend us to this day!


At least, that's what we've all been told.


The truth is, the Patron died that day along with Woe. The UN replaced the Patron with a Reploid, designed to mimic the real Patron and continue on his mission of protection. Today, the Patron Reploid is secretly piloted by an elite team - a team prepared for anything… except for the death of one of their own.



THE SILVER COIN

Eisner-winning artist MICHAEL WALSH (Star Wars, Black Hammer/Justice League) teams with an all-star lineup of collaborators-CHIP ZDARSKY (STILLWATER), KELLY THOMPSON (Sabrina the Teenage Witch), ED BRISSON (Old Man Logan), and JEFF LEMIRE (GIDEON FALLS)-on a new horror anthology miniseries for mature readers.


Each issue will tell a tale of terror in a shared supernatural world. The story starts in 1978 with a failing rock band whose fortune suddenly changes when they find the mysterious Silver Coin. Little do they know that fame comes with a cost, and a curse is always hungry.
