New In-Store Releases For Wednesday, December 26, 2018!


The Wedding of Ben Grimm & Alicia Masters
in Fantastic Four #5



Highlights This Week: Because of the Christmas holiday, the comic book industry isn’t releasing a lot of product this week, but a handful of titles were shipped to retailers last week so there would be something new on the shelves to spend all of those new-found gift cards and Christmas cash on! Marvel Comics has the most releases beginning with Fantastic Four #5 that features the nuptials between Ben Grimm (The Thing) and his long-standing girlfriend, Alicia Masters. Marvel has promised that the pair will indeed tie the knot and that is most definitely true, since we’ve already seen the issue. However, a superhero just wouldn’t be the same with out the appearance of a bad guy or two and the sequence detailing Ben’s bachelor party with art supplied by Adam Hughes is worth the price of the book all by itself! Also from Marvel, Uncanny X-Men #7 reveals the return of X-Man and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the new X-Force #1 spins out of the events of the recent Extermination one-shot and Superior Spider-Man #1 (also all-new) spins out of the just-completed Spider-Geddon mini-series! From Image Comics, Die! Die! Die! #6 and Man-Eaters #4! Dark Horse releases Hellboy & BPRD: 1956 #2 (of 5)! IDW has their second offering from their all-ages Marvel “Team-Up”, Marvel Action: Avengers #1 and Go-Bots #2! And, Boom! Studios releases Bone Parish #5 (of 12) and the Bone Parish Volume 1:  Softcover! Things will be back to normal next week with the normal new slew of releases on Wednesday, January 2nd! Until then, a Merry Christmas to everyone!
