What To Look Forward To – 5/03 – Featuring Eternal Empire #1, Injustice 2 #1, Secret Empire #1, New TPBs & So Much More!

Welcome to What To Look Forward To!

Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. (Very quick this week!) A few new series coming out, as well as some new TPBs and HCs to check out. There’s a new segment at the bottom of the page, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Eternal Empire #1 – From Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn, the creators of Alex + Ada, comes a new story about a warrior’s last stand to save her country!

Pestilence #1 – The Black Plague (yes, that one) wasn’t just that, it was actually the first zombie infection! Now a former crusader must find what’s causing this and stop it before it kills literally everyone in Europe. From Frank Tierri and Oleg Okunev comes the next classic from Aftershock Comics.

Secret Empire #1 – Everything Marvel has been working toward these last few months all comes to a head!

Injustice 2 #1 – Tom Taylor returns for the much-anticipated second round of DC’s massive war. And don’t miss the game, out later this month!

Bane: Conquest #1 – The original creators of Bane return to their master work for this 12-issue limited series!

Black Bolt #1 – Between Saladin Ahmed (award-winning sci-fi winner) and Christian Ward’s artwork this is bound to be one trippy series.

Other issues to look forward to:
