NEW COMICS & G/N'S APRIL 15TH 2015

 
New Comics day for Wednesday 15th April.
 Beautiful morning or what?
So five week shipping months always lead to a slighter release week somewhere and
this week sort of fits the bill.
That being said DC has a swarm of Convergence buzzing about(IMO look stronger than last weeks) a handful of Vertigo to temp you.
Marvel is waiting in the wings for Secret Wars to debut (on Free Comic Book Day only two Saturdays away!) so this week is very much lots of calm not a hint of storm.
Image has a couple of new releases and Dark Horse and Archie meet somewhere in the middle with wonky Archie and Predator.

Savior #01

Image Comics
(W) Todd McFarlane, Brian Holguin (A/CA) Clayton Crain
What if the MOST DANGEROUS man on Earth was also the one trying to do the MOST GOOD? The world is real. The people are normal. And then he appears!

A man appears with no background, no memory, and no place to call home. But he has powers. Powers that seem resemble those we learned about in Sunday School. Could it be?! Is it possible that this man is much, much more than that? Is it possible that he is our "SAVIOR" in the flesh? And if he is, then why doesn't he know who he is or how he got his powers?

Strip away the spandex and trappings of the traditional comic superhero and ask yourself a simple question: "How would I react if GOD suddenly appeared in front of me, but everything we had been taught about him seems out of whack?" What you would have left, beyond your own doubts, is the presence of a man who has to deal with the fact that his appearance in the world is seen as both a blessing and a curse. Some will see him as a hero, a messiah. Other will see him as an enemy because there isn't room for a person with god-like powers to disrupt the status quo of what we already believe. Some will rally behind him. Others will denounce him. But none of us will be able to ignore him.

Together, with three other women who possess abilities of inhuman nature, Sorentino embarks on a journey to discover the full potential of their collective powers.

To accomplish this task, he recruits Susan Greene, a young and wide-eyed pharmacologist fascinated by his macabre experiments. Initially unfazed by West's unorthodox practices (including how he funds his research - by selling zombie brain fluid as a narcotic), Susan may regret her scientific curiosity as sinister forces - those aligned with Elder Gods and Haitian Voodoo - begin to align against the Reanimator! Dynamite Entertainment proudly resurrects The Reanimator, H.P Lovecraft's notorious mad scientist, in a fear-fraught four-issue miniseries! Take what you love best about the television shows 'Breaking Bad' and 'Walking Dead', throw in Cthulhu tentacle terror and backwater Louisianan superstition, and you have the all-new horror comic hit of 2015!
