The publisher says: Thirty years ago, the world watched in horror as THE PATRON, a hero sent from another dimension as humanitarian aid, went blow by blow with WOE, a primeval beast and perfect partner for our mighty protector. In the end, hero and villain alike fell … but the patron returned – and defends us to this day!

At least that’s what we’ve all been told.

The truth is that that day the patron died along with Woe. The UN replaced the patron with a reploid that was supposed to imitate the real patron and continue his protective mission.

Today the Patron Reploid is secretly controlled by an elite team – a team prepared for anything … except the death of their own.

A deep insight into the underside of the superhero myth as only the writer Steve Orlando (KILL A MAN, Midnighter, Martian Manhunter) can tell. Illustrated by Patrick Piazzalunga (Siege, X-Factor), this volume contains issues # 1-5

What I say: Steve Orlando. Secret. A new superhero concept. Steve Orlando. Steve Orlando.

The publisher says: The bestselling Batman epic from the team behind Dark Nights: Metal Continues Here! This second and final omnibus collection includes Batman # 34-52; Batman Annual # 3-4, Batman: Futures End # 1, DC Sneak Peek: Batman # 1, Batman: Last Knight on Earth # 1-3 and Stories from the Detective Comics # 27 and # 1000.

What I say: There’s a reason this collaboration gets the omnibus treatment. That’s because the work was character-defining and as hell entertaining. This tome is 928 pages long, and that’s how people should read it Batman.

The publisher says: Krakoa is for sewers!

The deals are made. Mutantkind is safe on his new island nation. But who represents the interests of the mutants who have everything? At the top is the X Corporation, led by CXOs Monet St. Croix and Warren Worthington – a duo who are as cutthroat and ruthless in the boardroom as they are on the battlefield. But X-Corp needs more than just its figureheads.

And while Monet sets out to cast some of the brightest mutants on his team – including Dr. Jamie Madrox, who offers maximum synergies with minimum bandwidth – new investors are coming, including Selene and Mastermind! But when deals bear fruit unexpectedly, Warren finds himself in a tense meeting with one of Krakoa’s first allies who wants to know the truth: will X-Corp fall or rise on Angel’s wings?

X-Corp (2021) # 1-5

What I say: Tini Howard’s work is among the most powerful of the current X-Men era and X-Corp is no exception. Bringing the boardroom world to Krakoa is an ace in my books, and Howard, doing this with Foche and De Landro, is just the icing on the cake.

The publisher says: LORD VADER … RISE!

Follow Vader in the Revenge of the Sith as he rises to power as the Dark Lord of the Sith! After Vader has lost everything that was dear to him and is now more machine than human, Vader takes his first steps into a darker world – and begins to exterminate the remaining Jedi of the galaxy! But the librarian Jocasta Nu is making desperate efforts to preserve the Jedi legacy, and a rebellion has begun in the Mon Cala system! To ensure that the Emperor has a firm grip on the galaxy, Vader must fight all insurrections quickly and brutally – but he has a goal of his own. And when darkness rises over Mustafar, the scene of Vader’s greatest defeat, will the man who was once called Anakin Skywalker discover his true fate?

Collecting DARTH VADER (2017) # 1-25 and ANNUAL # 2.

What I say: Charles Soule has a talent for plumbing war of stars Universe for jewels of stories, and its course continues Darth Vader is a shining example of this. One of the architects of The High Republic, Soule leads the readers to the postRevenge of the Sith Era and gives us a Vader the galaxy didn’t see coming.

The publisher says: Neil Gaiman’s award-winning masterpiece, The Sandman, one of the most popular and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time, set the standard for mature, lyrical fantasy in the modern comic era. Illustrated by an exemplary selection of the medium’s most talented artists, the series is a rich blend of modern and ancient mythology, in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.

The Sandman: The Deluxe Edition Book Four contains issues 51-69 of The Sandman’s original series, which includes the zero-hour story “World’s End” – in the World’s End Tavern, two travelers tell stories like “A Tale of Two.” “. Cities “. This volume also includes Vertigo Jam # 1, where the beauty and wonder of Dream’s Castle can be experienced.

What I say: Well, this might not be the place to start reading this series, but if you know a fan who wants to read it in the nicest possible way yet, this 528 page chunker is the way to go! As for these deluxe editions / omnibuses, $ 50 is damn good value for money!
