The new Annihilation event continues to barrel its way through the Marvel universe, and now it’s coming for Beta Ray Bill. Easily the most exciting and intense of the Scourge specials, Annihilation Scourge: Beta Ray Bill is the highlight of the event so far, and Michael Moreci and Alberto Jimenez Albuquerque’s special should absolutely lead to an ongoing for the Norse Horse.

Tom King continues to put the Dark Knight into new and interesting places, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Batman #51, which puts Bruce Wayne into a situation we’ve never seen him in before: jury duty.

The Archie Horror line has had some great series, but the one area they’ve been lacking in is consistency when it comes to release dates. As great as Afterlife with Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are, the fact that their publishing schedule is pretty lax (to put it mildly) makes for a pretty frustrating experience as a fan. With the arrival of Jughead: The Hunger, a new monthly series spun out of the one-shot released a few months ago, I’m hopeful that the Archie Horror brand, now called Árchie’s Madhouse, can get the scheduling train back on track, especially because this opening issue is pretty spectacular.
