“It’s your dream, little lord. The ocean’s come to swallow this place.”

Okay, so Marvel isn’t falling the same way that Winterfell did, but we (the royal we) comic book readers will be hit by the wave of Secret Wars tie-ins that begin this week. Nostalgic readers might feel compelled to pick up Planet Hulk #1, while A-Force #1 offers something fresh. Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1 is extremely ironic, but that’s Deadpool. Uncanny X-Men #34 this week and #600 is delayed until after Secret Wars. Marvel apparently really hates the mutants.

DC is in the penultimate week of Convergence. And that’s really all there is to say about that.

IDW has some nifty IP publications like Classic Popeye #34, Jem and the Holograms #3 (which is ACTUALLY about Jem and the Holograms), Transformers #41, and a new Donald Duck #1 which will compliment the new Uncle Scrooge series.

Scott Snyder wraps up his first arc on the Image book Wytches #6, the gang returns to Riverdale (more on that later), and Archie Comics gets ready for “Sonic/Mega Man Worlds Unite” in Mega Man #49.

A-Force #1 (Marvel)

Writers: G. Willow Wilson + Marguerite Bennett, Artist: Jorge Molina, $3.99

The newest iteration of Earth’s mightiest heroes is here to protect Battleworld and is made of Marvel’s mightiest women. Even though it’s one of many Secret Wars tie-ins, this is definitely one to pick up with such a stellar creative force of G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and Marguerite Bennett (Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, Earth 2: World’s End).

Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Cullen Bunn, Artist: Matteo Lolli + Jacopo Camagni, $4.99

It’s like an ironic tie-in…sort of. It’s related to the first Secret Wars, the one from 1984, and Deadpool is being put right into the thick of things in the original Battleworld. You say Deadpool wasn’t in that story? Well, read on and find out the secret!

Fade Out #6 (Image)

Writer: Ed Brubaker, Artists: Sean Phillips + Elizabeth Breitweiser, $3.50

It may not be on a consistent schedule, but when the Fade Out hits shelves with a new book it’s always a good New Comic Book Day.

Kitchen #7 (DC/Vertigo)

Writer: Ollie Masters, Artist: Ming Doyle, $2.99

As if the ladies didn’t already have enough on their plates, the New York City blackout of ’77 hits (historical context!).

Archie vs. Predator #2 (Dark Horse)

Writer: Alex De Campi, Artists: Rich Koslowski + Fernando Ruiz, $3.99

Jughead can’t wait to grab a burger in Riverdale, except that the extraterrestrial bounty hunter is still on their trail and he’s got the hots for Betty and Veronica. And by hots I mean hits.
