Best Comics of the Week: Arriving October 24 – FEATURING: 

BLACK PANTHER VS DEADPOOL #1
MARVEL COMICS
Writer: Daniel Kibblesmith
Artist: Ricardo Lopez Ortiz

VIBRANIUM BULLETS AND REGROWING LIMBS – EVERYTHING YOU WANT FROM A COMIC IS HERE!

Deadpool’s teamed up with, taken down or taken a beating from just about every hero in the Marvel Universe. And no way is the Black Panther going to miss out on his turn. From Late Show writer Daniel Kibblesmith comes a hilarious romp through Wakanda as Deadpool goes on the hunt for the world’s most valuable resource: Vibranium! When a beloved figure of the Marvel Universe becomes collateral damage in a fight between Deadpool and the Wrecker, the heroic Deadpool sets out to obtain a fragment of Vibranium that could save the victim’s life. But his unconventional methods – ranging from poaching to dismemberment – don’t sit well with the King of Wakanda, and Deadpool’s about to learn that you don’t bring a sword to a claw fight!

LODGER #1
IDW PUBLISHING
Writers: David Lapham, Maria Lapham
Artist: David Lapham

A handsome drifter murders his way through the midwest while hiding in plain sight as a travel blogger, leaving families in shreds and body bags in his wake. Ricky Toledo was fifteen when she fell hard for “Dante”-until he killed her mother and got her father sent to prison for it. It’s three years later, and Ricky will stop at nothing to get revenge. Lodger is a dark, grimy, psychological thriller-a game of cat and mouse between a broken young woman and a serial killer-and like all the best crime noir… a twisted love story.

A new series from Eisner Award winners David and Maria Lapham!
BLACK CROWN’S first black and white miniseries!

OLD LADY HARLEY #1
DC COMICS
Writer: Frank Tieri
Artist: Inaki Miranda

After liberating New York City from her now-feral Gang of Harleys, poor Harley wants nothing more than to slip back into retirement in her coastal (and heavily guarded) paradise. But the Laughing Boys Gang has another idea-they’ll follow her to the ends of the Earth, to drag her back to their leader! It can’t actually be…him! Right?! He couldn’t possibly still be alive, could he? After all…Harley killed him herself with her bare hands! Should she turn to President Power Girl for help? Or flee to the 51st state, Atlantis? Step into an insane vision of a future DC Universe we all better hope we don’t live to see!

WHISPERING DARK #1
DARK HORSE COMICS
Writer: Christofer Emgard
Artist: Tomas Aira

An Army pilot confronts a supernatural horror in this thriller in the tradition of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness and Coppola’s Apocalypse Now!

Hannah Vance believed her faith in God could survive anything. But when her helicopter is shot down behind enemy lines, she will fight and kill on an ever more savage battlefield, desperate for a way home. On the horizon, an evil waits for her-and freedom, of a sort.

Emgård was a writer on Battlefield 1 and Star Wars Battlefront II!

Aira was an artist on War Stories and Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath!
