Comic Quest Weekly for 7/30/2018

Rick and Morty Roll the Dice with Dungeons & Dragons

IDW, in partnership with Oni Press, is bringing two of the most popular properties in the world, Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty™ and Dungeons & Dragons, together in a brand-new four-issue comic book series. Taking the reins of these two iconic properties is the superstar creative team of writers Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) and Jim Zub (The Avengers, Wayward) along with Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).

Debuting this August, the mini-series will throw Rick and Morty into a high-fantasy adventure blended with the wit, humor, and intelligence the show is widely celebrated for.

“Of course, I’d love to be on board, but it would NEVER happen. Wizards of the Coast wouldn’t let the crown jewel of gaming be violated by Adult Swim’s dimension-hopping bastards,” said Jim Zub. “Little did I know that in a world of swirling media synergies and crazy memes, it’s the perfect time to let these properties off the chain. I’m so glad the team at WotC realize that. This project is a warped and freakish monster, but it’s also a love letter to gaming glory.”

In this summer’s biggest comic book crossover, Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about Dungeons & Dragons, the game all the cool kids at his school are playing; naturally, things go horribly wrong as Rick, Morty, and the whole Smith family find themselves on an epic quest with no escape in sight.

Each issue will feature variant covers that fans of both series will love, including character sheets, and more!

SPEAKING OF RICK AND MORTY…THE RICKMOBILE IS COMING TO CQ!

Fans of Rick and Morty will want to visit on Friday August 31st from 6pm to 9pm as CQ will be hosting the Rickmobile. Not only will you enjoy seeing the Rickmobile they will have all kinds of Rick and Morty merchandise to sell. We will also be hosting the writer of the Rick and Morty comic book, Evansville’s own Kyle Starks(more details about this later).  August 31st will be a night to remember for Rick and Morty fans!

NEW ARRIVALS!

INFINITY WARS#1 (OF6)

STL090066 (1032×1566)

(W) Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Mike Deodato

As the Infinity Stones come to Earth, so too comes the war for control over them. But none who wield the stones know the truth about the power they contain…or what it would take to bring them to their END. The nature of the universe itself hangs in the balance as we learn the answer to the question on everyone’s lips since “Infinity Wars Prime”: WHO IS REQUIEM? Gerry Duggan (DEADPOOL, INFINITY COUNTDOWN) and Mike Deodato Jr. (ORIGINAL SIN, OLD MAN LOGAN) look into the Infinite and bring the truth to light!

SEEDS#1    3.99

SEEDS #1 (MR)

 

(W) Ann Nocenti (A/CA) David Aja

The bees are swarming. What do they know that we don’t?
The rich have built walls around their wealth and scramble into escape rockets. The romantic and the ruthless cross over into the lawless wilds of Zone-B. A few cantankerous aliens have come to collect the last dregs of humanity’s essence for the celestial embryo bank. One of them falls in love. 

Astra is an idealistic journalist who stumbles into the story of a lifetime, only to realize that if she reports it, she’ll destroy the last hope of a dying world. How far will she go to get her story? An eco-fiction tech-thriller where flora and fauna have begun to mutate, The Seeds is also a story of love beyond race and gender, and of the resilience of both human and animal kind. 

A new four-issue series, by award-winning artist David Aja (Hawkeye, Immortal Iron Fist) and filmmaker, journalist, and comics writer Ann Nocenti (Daredevil, Catwoman). 

o For mature readers.

COSMIC GHOST RIDER #2 (OF 5) 3.99

COSMIC GHOST RIDER #2 (OF 5)

 

(W) Donny Cates (A) Dylan Burnett (CA) Geoff Shaw

The Rider is out to change the universe for the better, starting with an idea so simple he cannot believe no one has ever done it before! But as with all things worth doing, it’s not going to be easy. For one thing: SPACE SHARKS. For another? Let’s just say it’s never good to run into Galactus during a bar fight.

WALKING DEAD #182 CVR A 3.99

WALKING DEAD #182 CVR A ADLARD & STEWART (MR)

 

(W) Robert Kirkman (A) Stefano Gaudiano, Cliff Rathburn (CA) Dave Stewart (A/CA) Charlie Adlard

John, the savage new leader of the Saviors, has turned over a new leaf… just in time for an alliance with The Commonwealth?

BATMAN #52 3.99

BATMAN #52

 

(W) Tom King (A/CA) Lee Weeks

“Cold Days” continues! The jury in the Mr. Freeze trial is hopelessly deadlocked because one man won’t vote guilty-and that man is Bruce Wayne. Freeze’s defense is that Batman used excessive force, making his arrest illegal, and Bruce is the one man who actually knows for sure what went down between Batman and his ice-cold nemesis. And if Bruce is right, that means everything he’s devoted himself to as the Caped Crusader is a lie; he is hurting more than helping. With Dick Grayson putting the Batsuit back on to keep Gotham City safe while Bruce is sequestered, could this be the out Bruce needs to discard the cape and cowl forever? 
The Eisner Award-nominated team of Tom King and Lee Weeks reexamine the relationship between hero and foe, as Batman relives not just that one violent night when he took down the King of Cold, but every time the two have come to blows. 

JUSTICE LEAGUE #5 3.99

JUSTICE LEAGUE #5

Lex Luthor’s back in the present just trying to live his best life after seeing what the future could have held for him. Luthor’s new mantra? “Embrace Your Doom!” So now he’s rounding up a new Legion of Doom to go on a cosmic wilding and establish himself as the biggest baddie in the DCU. In full recruiting mode, Luthor approaches both Sinestro and Gorilla Grodd to join his new team, and he doesn’t exactly have to twist any arms.

TMNT BODYCOUNT HC (MR)

 

(W) Kevin Eastman (A) Kevin Eastman (A/CA) Simon Bisley

After being out of print for years, a grindhouse-style classic returns-better than ever. Inspired by the magazine Heavy Metal and the films of John Woo, creators Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley present a much darker take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, spinning a pulse-pounding yarn of over-the-top action and more than a bit of the old ultraviolence. In gritty 1990s New York, our boys Raphael and Casey are swept up into an international murder/revenge/assassination plot, complete with gangsters, thugs, cops, cyborgs, machine guns, and (of course) hockey sticks. Don’t miss what might just be the longest-running gunfight in comic book history! Collects Bodycount issues #1-4 with all-new colors by Kevin Eastman.

JACK KIRBY MARVEL HEROES & MONSTERS ARTIST ED HC 150

JACK KIRBY MARVEL HEROES & MONSTERS ARTIST ED HC

VALERIAN COMPLETE COLLECTION HC VOL 04 29.99

VALERIAN COMPLETE COLLECTION HC VOL 04

 

(W) Pierre Christin (A/CA) Jean-Claude Mezieres

Fourth volume of the collection: return to Earth, and some great upheavals in the characters’ lives, are on the menu for the best titles of the series. This volume contains books 9 to 12, two unmissable two-parters that represent a turning point in the story of our agents, and which are widely considered by critics and readers alike to be the pinnacle of the series. Characterised by a return to 20th century Earth, these two stories are suffused with incredible melancholy and poetic charm, and force Valerian, the action man, to face his limitations. As the real date neared 1986, final year of our world according to the authors, Pierre Christin reconciled fiction and reality with consummate skill and daring, sweeping aside the status quo and sending his heroes down a completely new path.
