Saddle Up, Spaceman!

If you've been missing Firefly (and who doesn't?), but you've already read Leaves on the Wind, I have good news and bad news! Bad news first: there's been no update on when we'll be getting another mini-series. The good news is, I've discovered a wonderful new comic that can deliver all those Old West/Science Fiction vibes you've been wanting anyway: Copperhead!
Set in the distant frontier of an alien planet in the 24th century, a new sheriff comes to the small, grimy mining town of Copperhead just in time to poke her nose into a brutal massacre. The story hits all the best beats of a classic western: there are angry natives, hillbilly family secrets, greedy outlaws, a disgruntled deputy, dangerous varmints, corrupt mining tycoons, a mysterious gunslinger, and a whole host of people who don't want to talk about their past.
Sheriff Clara Bronson just wants a safe new home for her son, but this dusty backwater isn't the law-and-order-abiding place she was hoping for, and nobody wants to follow the rules no matter how hard she tries to make them. Deputy Budroxifinicus ("Boo") thought the sheriff-job was his by rights, but he's seen as a second-class citizen by many due to his species, so now he's stuck nursemaiding a newcomer who doesn't know the town's ropes but thinks she ought to be in charge just because she's got the badge. Little Zekke Bronson wants to make friends and have fun but mom's rules keep him safe inside--until he decides he ought to try and help people in trouble just like ma, and gets in over his head. Those who run the copper mine have secrets of their own they want to keep, and the mother of all those dead green-blob-hillbillies wants vengeance without having to cooperate with the coppers. And as for the angry natives...well, they haven't given-up many of their secrets yet, so you'll just have to find out for yourself!
The first volume of Copperhead is out now, and the series is continuing to add more layers of dust to this old-fashioned future mining town and its less-than-lawful citizens every month. Having been a fan of the mythical "Old West" since childhood, this series is right up my alley with its intriguing new twists on classic themes, and I've tumbled head-over-bootheels for it. Hop aboard the train now before you're left at the station, and grab your copy of volume one today!

Plant a Tree, Change the World

Sick of looking out your window at a frigid wintry wasteland? Want some different scenery to brighten your spirits and capture your imagination? You're in luck, because there's a brave new world just waiting in the newest offering from Warren Ellis: the comic series Trees. I've been intrigued since the first strange issue, and now that the initial arc has swung closed, I can definitely predict that this comic is going to be one of my all-time favorites.
Illustrated by Jason Howard, the first volume of this fresh new sci-fi vision of the world has just recently been collected, and the story it holds is delightfully intriguing. The premise is a familiar one: alien invasion. However, the Earth has never seen an invasion quite like this before. Giant alien pillars land all over the world, many causing damage when they touch-down -- but none of them firing a shot. There are no flying saucers, no demands for surrender, no lasers or bombs, no alien troops marching through our streets. There are only the Trees, impregnable and silent, looming over humanity as if we were no more than ants. The Trees came to our world but they did not, it seems, come for us.
And so life goes on in the shadows of the Trees. Humanity comes to accept, and in a way almost forget, the presence of these alien monoliths as the years pass. The Trees become just another part of life, become normal. But they cast a long shadow, and the world is changed by their presence. Some societies crumble under the weight, while others flourish. The comic paints a picture of the world under the Trees and in the process introduces us to a fascinating cast of characters, every one of them captivating and singular enough to hold their own story but in this tale each person is just a slice of the whole of this invaded world.
Floodwaters turn New York into a gang-state. Flowers grow in an arctic wasteland. Resources flourish in Africa. Crime and politics have taken root in the streets of Brazil. Art and self-expression find free-reign in China. No matter how normal life has come to seem, everything -- and everyone -- touched by the Trees has been affected by this invasion, whether they know it or not. It has been ten years since the Trees came to Earth, and things have changed...and now as the first volume of this story comes to an end, they are about to change again. Grab your copy of this compelling new story and find out how!

Comics Under the Covers

You may think Han's calling for help on that thing but he's really reading comics!

Cold enough for you out there? Well, we may not have a Super Duper Blasting SunRay 3000 to disperse the winter chill, but we do have the next best thing: comics! Grab a mug of your hot beverage of choice, a pile of blankets, and curl up with a great new read. Why not start with the new Star Wars and Darth Vader comics, fresh from the destruction of the Death Star before our heroes ever froze on Hoth? Or plunge into an even colder place in Winterworld where you can take pleasure in the fact that at least it's not that cold outside--yet! If you'd rather focus on escape than schadenfreude, there are plenty of distracting titles that have nothing to do with wintry weather--or any earthly weather at all, since they take place out in space: Fuse, Captain Marvel, Saga, Cluster, Copperfield, Guardians of the Galaxy...Or heat things up with adventures closer to home, like The Wicked & The Divine, Trees, BodiesDaredevil, Harley QuinnFade Out, The Walking Dead...

The fictional possibilities are endless, and if you get yourself a big enough stack of books, you won't have to come out from under the covers until spring! Bundle-up and come on over to your friendly neighborhood Comix Connection--but if you head out on tauntaun be careful, I hear those things bite...or at least, suffer frostbite! We suggest more reliable means of transportation to fetch your precious haul of comics, but however you get here, we'll be glad to help keep you entertained while you hibernate!
