New Release Comics - Wednesday, August 19

Battleworld continues to expand this week with the introduction of a couple new titles to Marvel's epic Secret Wars storyline. The creative team of Dennis Hopeless and Marco Failla bring you House of M #1. The House of Magnus has crushed the resistance that opposed its rule. Now, Magneto, his children, and his grandchildren live like royalty, ruling over all. Of course, when there is no one left to conquer, what does a conqueror do? And what if the resistance is not truly a thing of the past? And you don't want to miss the new Howard the Human #1 by Skottie Young and Jim Mahfood! Yes, you read that correctly: Howard the Human is here! In a world full of animals, Howard is the only human, and he's a private detective tracking down cases and barely escaping dangerous encounters! Of course, there's plenty of continuing Secret Wars stories this week as well, including 1872 #2, Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies #3, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #4, Runaways #3, and more!

DC is dealing with its own war in Justice League #43 by Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok. "The Darkseid War" continues in this issue as Batman plays at becoming a god while rivals Superman and Lex Luthor are forced to stand with each other to survive their trial. But who's in charge of the Justice League with Bats and Supes preoccupied? Wonder Woman, of course! She is leading the rest of the League in to battle against the mighty Anti-Monitor and Darkseid! 

BOOM! Studios have been putting out a lot of great books for awhile now, so when a new #1 hits the shelves, it's worth taking a look. This week they have Welcome Back #1 by Christopher Sebela and Jonathan Brandon Sawyer. Meli and Tessa have been at war for a very long time. In fact, both have lived hundreds of lives in the process. Each new life, the two begin again, not knowing why and not aware of their previous battles. But that's all about to change when Mali wakes up in her new life, aware of he previous ones. But she won't have long to contemplate why they are stuck in this eternal battle because Tessa is already out there hunting.
