CLICK HERE TO SEE THIS WEEK'S RACK!


If you're a little pushed for time:


HERE ARE OUR HIGHLIGHTS!


IMMORTAL HULK FLATLINE #1

ONE CREATOR. ONE HULK. ONE SUPERSTAR STORY!


Declan Shalvey writes and draws an IMMORTAL HULK tale that gets to the heart of gamma! Every morning, Bruce Banner wakes up in a new place. The Hulk is trying to tell him something - but Bruce has had enough of his green-veined alters.


When a new gamma-powered villain shows up in a small New Mexico town, Bruce is forced to confront the source of his anger… and it's not what you expect.


Don't miss an extraordinary tale from one of the industry's top talents! Rated T+



MORBIUS BOND OF BLOOD #1

MORBIUS, THE LIVING VAMPIRE, FACES A GHOST FROM HIS PAST: HIS FIRST KILL!


Emil Nikos was Morbius' research partner until the bloodlust made Emil the first victim to Morbius' vampiric urges!


Now, Emil's son is dying from a new rare blood disease and only Morbius can save him!


But at what cost? Rated T+








ORCS #1

For fans of The Adventure Zone and Critical Role, meet Bog and his misfit crew of Orcs as they adventure through the Known World courtesy of acclaimed cartoonist Christine Larsen (Adventure Time).


After being banished from their Orcish village by King Hrograhgah (it was a simple misunderstanding, involving an acorn-related prank!), Bog and his crew venture out into the world to seek their fortune, and hopefully find their way back home again.


Tag along with Bog, Zep, Pez, Utzu and Gurh as they venture through the dreaded Eerieasallhel Forest, face off against Trolls, Gnomes, squirrels and more, and follow in the footsteps of the legendary Orc hero, Drod One-Eye!


Every issue of Orcs! is oversized, featuring more than 30 story pages.



RADIANT BLACK #1

For fans of INVINCIBLE and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comes a brand-new ONGOING SERIES from acclaimed writer KYLE HIGGINS (Ultraman, C.O.W.L.) and artist MARCELO COSTA that reinvents superheroes for a new generation! Nathan Burnett has just turned thirty, and things aren't great: He's working (and failing) at two jobs, his credit card debt is piling up, and his only move� is moving back home with his parents. But when Nathan discovers and unlocks the ethereal, cosmic RADIANT, he's given the power to radically change his fortunes! There's just one problem: The powers don't belong to him. And the COSMIC BEINGS who created them want them back... by any means necessary.



SHADOW DOCTOR #1

Years in the making, this is the true story of writer Peter Calloway's grandfather, Nathaniel Calloway, a Black man who graduated from medical school in the early 1930's.


Unable to get work at any Chicago hospitals because he was Black, and unable to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice because he was Black, he turned to another source of money in Prohibition-era Chicago: the Mafia, run by none other than Al Capone.


As Calloway himself says, 'On the one hand, his story represents the promise of America. On the other hand, it shows the worst of it.'





TRUTH & JUSTICE #1

The DC Universe is synonymous with two words: Truth and Justice, and in the first issue of this new anthology series, Vixen takes center stage.


Mari McCabe is many things: superhero, model, activist, but can she add godkiller to the list? Vixen teams up with Dr. Mist and Impala of the Global Guardians to face down an ancient deity that’s taken over the body of a scientist investigating powerful magical artifacts.


Vixen will need to dig deep and use all the abilities in the animal kingdom to face down this powerful primeval threat!




X-Men Legends #1

ALL-NEW TALES STARRING YOUR FAVORITE X-MEN, SPANNING CLASSIC ERAS!


Break out the yellows and blues, fire up the Danger Room and snap on your pouches as legendary X-writers return to classic eras of the mutant super heroes in ALL-NEW, in-continuity stories set during their fan-favourite runs!


Fabian Nicieza kicks off the series with a special saga of CYCLOPS and HAVOK, as the SHI'AR return to Earth in search of the FORSAKEN ONE! What secret will the Summers brothers uncover, and how will its revelation change what you thought you knew about the X-Men?


Get ready for a story decades in the making! And come back each month as we dive deeper to expand the X-MEN mythos! Welcome back, legends: Hope you survive the experience.



And that's it for this week. We'll be back with a Waffle tomorrow, after last week's skip week, and then hopefully returning to our scheduled Sunday slot for the next "What's on the Rack?" Have a great week!
