Podcast #11 (recorded 9/10/2018). This podcast was recorded after careful planning, well, kinda careful planning. Taking into consideration the last podcast, this should be spectacular!
House of Whispers (Vertigo/DC) release date 9/12
Cemetery Beach (Image) release date 9/12
Batman Damned (DC/Black Label) release date 9/19
Dead Rabbit (Image) release date 10/3
Black Badge (BOOM!) released 8/8
Listen as I pretend to have a format for the podcast. If you pay attention you can catch me getting confused by static, which was due to my mother calling my cell phone and hear me misuse the work ‘dearth’.
I know this is Marvel’s weekly flip advert, but please, PLEASE check out our post about us making September independent comic month.
On to the business. #1s, there are a few (see after shameless Cosmic Ghost Rider plug). Also, Cosmic Ghost Rider variants galore! The Immortal Hulk #5 Cosmic Ghost Rider variant (by Razzah) is incredible!
Who are the Asgardians of the Galaxy you ask? They are; Angela, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor. The hotheaded Valkyrie – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs. Skurge the Executioner, freshly returned from Hel. Throg, the mightiest frog of thunder. Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero Thunderstrike. And the Destroyer, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown. Dale Keown is doing the regular cover and it’s AwEsOmE!
Asgardians Of The Galaxy #1 (Cover A Dale Keown)
Asgardians Of The Galaxy #1 (Cover B Skottie Young)

Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover C Stonehouse)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover D Esad Ribic)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover E Dave Johnson Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover F George Perez)
Oh yes, Thanos Legacy. So what happened between Thanos Wins & Infinity Wars? This fills in the gap & gives some insight into him losing his head in Infinity Wars (did a do a good enough job of being ambiguous to avoid spoilers?). Check out the sick Ribic variant (sorry, already sold)!
Astonishing X-Men #15 (Cover A Greg Land)
Astonishing X-Men #15 (Cover B Akcho Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Deadpool #4 (Cover A Nic Klein)
Deadpool #4 (Cover B Todd Nauck Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)

Captain America #3 (Cover A Alex Ross), $3.99
Captain America #3 (Cover D Patrick Zircher Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Immortal Hulk #5 (Cover A Alex Ross)
Immortal Hulk #5 (Cover B Rahzzah Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
By the way, Immortal Hulk is a great read. Al Ewing is one of the most underrated writers in comics. He can bounce back in forth with genres, Immortal Hulk has started as a horror book and is really good.
Rounding out the month:
Ant-Man And The Wasp #5 (Of 5)
Avengers #7 (Cover A Geoff Shaw)
Avengers #7 (Cover B Clayton Crain)
Avengers #7 (Cover C Tradd Moore Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)

Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 (Of 5)(Cover B Declan Shalvey): see the 1:25 variant below!
Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 (Of 5)(Cover C Ivan Shavrin)
Two solid tales from Donny Cates. Cosmic Ghost Rider is a fun, goofy book that would appeal to Deadpool fans & Death of the Inhumans is a dark, twisted tale.
Death Of The Inhumans #3 (Of 5)(Cover A Kaare Andrews)
Death Of The Inhumans #3 (Of 5)(Cover B Aaron Kuder Young Guns Variant Cover D)
Quicksilver No Surrender #5 (Of 5)

Amazing Spider-Man #1 !!!!! Dan Slott is out and Nick Spencer & Ryan Ottley are the new creative team on the book. If you haven’t read any Nick Spencer stuff I can safely say the book will be a little more ‘adult’. Nick Spencer has a history with Spider-Man as he worked on Superior Foes of Spider-Man, which was really good. Ryan Ottley was THE artist on Robert Kirkman’s Invincible! His artwork will lend very well to Amazing Spider-Man, guaranteed!
X-23 #1 comes out with Marika Tamaki & artist Juan Cabal at the helm. Laura sheds the Wolverine costume and returns to her roots as X-23 w/ Gabby at her side.
Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows, Daredevil, Deadpool Assassin, Domino, Exiles, Ms. Marvel, New Mutants: Dead Souls, Old Man Logan, Punisher, Quicksilver, Star Wars, Thrawn, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, X-Men Blue and a host of True Believers (Fantastic Four themed) titles are released.

Published by Image, Severed is the hit horror comic of 2012! 12-year-old Jack Garron runs away from home to find his biological father, a wayward minstrel. Along the way, he meets up with a traveling salesman whose winning smile is fake, beneath which hide his real teeth… jagged spikes that he uses to eat children. Eisner Award Winning Writer Scott Snyder & NY Times Best Selling Artist Atilla Futaki bring you this collected paperback that everyone has been talking about!
