Here's are some exclusive extended previews for Dynamite Entertainment books shipping to comics shops this week. They include the debuts of Uncanny: Season 2 and Looking For Group plus the second issues of The Blood Queen vs Dracula and Project Superpowers: Blackcross.
Uncanny: Season 2 #1
Andy Diggle (w) Aaron Campbell (a) Jock, Ben Oliver (c)
Weaver is a man on the run. Gifted with the uncanny ability to steal knowledge and skills from other people, he found himself used as bait in a high stakes game of cat and mouse. Now it's time for Weaver to turn the tables on the shadowy organization known as Cadre, as he begins his quest to find the source of his own powers.
Looking For Group #1
Ryan Sohmer (w) Lar deSouza, Hawk, Ryan Dunlavey, Ed Ryzowski (a) Ty Templeton, Becky Dreisdadt (c)
Looking For Group is a hilarious ride through Fantasy and Adventure tropes, set in a reality and time unlike our own. A place where the eating of small children is not necessarily frowned upon; where beings of extraordinary power can destroy entire villages with only "because I could" as an excuse; where magic and adventure are as common place as setting fire to then reanimating a chipmunk into a skeletal minion (it happens more than you'd think); and an epic journey can begin by an accident of fate. With a brand new cover by Industry Veteran Ty Templeton (Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet) and bonus stories from the Non-Playable Character and Tiny Dick Adventures spinoffs, see what millions have been talking about online as this long-running webcomic comes to print in monthly comic book format.
The Blood Queen vs Dracula #2
Troy Brownfield (w) Kewber Baal (a) Jay Anacleto, Fabiano Neves (c)
The epic meeting between the Prince of Darkness and the Blood Queen continues! When Dracula and Elizabeth come face to face, sparks (and quite possibly, blood) will fly. With their common enemy rising from the Ottoman Empire, will they put aside their differences to fight back, or will they be consumed by their own war? It's two classic characters in one bold new series from Dynamite!
Project Superpowers: Blackcross #2
Warren Ellis (w) Colton Worley (a) Tula Lotay , Declan Shalvey, Gabriel Hardman, Colton Worley (c)
In the quiet Pacific Northwestern town of Blackcross, something terrible is happening. A man has burned himself to death by the lake, but there's no body. A man under witness protection is under threat. A serial killer is murdering his way towards the town limits. And supernatural figures stare out through mirrors and windows, haunting their own doppelgangers. The alternative history of Blackcross is reaching out through the mist to lay its claws on the real world.
Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson: Hopcross Jilly #6
Patricia Briggs, Rik Hoskin (w) Tom Garcia (a/c)
Mercy Thompson's all-new comic book adventure comes to its tense conclusion, in a story by New York Times' bestselling author, Patricia Briggs! Mercy has discovered a fae connection to the buried bodies. But can that knowledge help save her stepdaughter Jesse before she becomes Hopcross Jilly's next victim?
