Here are some of our favorite books that came out on Wednesday, April 2nd!

Caliban #1CALIBAN #1 (MR)
AVATAR PRESS INC
(W) Garth Ennis (A/CA) Facundo Percio
$3.99

Master storyteller GARTH ENNIS and Fashion Beast artist FACUNDO PERCIO team up to deliver a haunting new epic of science fiction horror. The crew of the Caliban travels hyperspace on nothing more than a routine trip for the giant vessel. Just human beings that have been inside a bit too long, confident of no other life in the Galaxy, and all the vastness of space to remind them how far they are from home. But when an impossible accident suddenly causes the Caliban to slam into an abandoned alien ship, a nightmare in space begins to unfold. Ennis delivers his unique brand of flawed characters, spot-on dialog, and trademark flare for the unexpected in a new series in the vein of Alien. This is the beginning of the end for the crew of the Caliban.

In the vein of old school Sci Fi Horror, CALIBAN reminds me of classic movies like ALIEN and OUTLAND. It’s a dirty, rough space story, one where the usual “rules” for Sci Fi are pretty much tossed out the window. The kind that only someone like Garth Ennis can write.

The Field #1FIELD #1 (OF 4) (MR)
IMAGE COMICS
(W) Ed Brisson (A/CA) Simon Roy
$3.50

A man wakes in a field wearing nothing but his underwear. He’s got no idea who he is or how he got there. His only connection to the outside world is a cell phone that receives mysterious texts warning him of impending danger. Danger like Christian, an ex-Bible salesman in the middle of a crime spree fueled by Christian Rock, dirty sex, meth, murder, and keeping this underwear-clad, nameless, and past-less man close by his side.

This book is just crazy… Like the summary states, a guy in his underwear with no memory is running around and trying not to get killed by what looks like a lot of people that want to kill him. This was a funky first issue, and with Image’s current track record, I think one to keep a close eye on…
