My favorite new comic book days are the ones with series debuts! This week brings us REAVER #01, from Justin Jordan and Rebekah Isaacs! It’s the best parts of your favorite genres tossed into an industrial blender and out comes this fantasy story of a group of death row inmates on a suicide mission through hostile territory. I’d recommend just about anyone check out the first issue because there’s a LOT to like here. You’ll know if it’s for you or not pretty quickly (spoiler: it is).
We also have new issues of OBLIVION SONG and OUTER DARKNESS! OBLIVION continues to be amazing and it seems like everyone month more people are realizing how crazy and amazing OUTER DARKNESS is.
And the cherry on top this week is the collection of all MURDER FALCON issues in one amazing trade paperback from Daniel Warren Johnson! If you’re a volume reader then your time is now. Here’s the entire story, issues 1-8. I love it dearly and I hope you will as well.

The continent of Madaras promised a new start for settlers… but 200 years after its discovery, the war rages on. Deep within this savage and untamed land, a darkness builds at The Anvil that must be stopped at all costs.
To do so, the Imperials assemble six of its most despicable prisoners–a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer, his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil’s Son.
They are the only ones who can stop the end of the new world. They are Hell’s Half-Dozen.
