Next up is Undertow #1.  Aside from being yet another new Image debut issue (speculators ahoy!), this aquatic based series features Atlantis as a superpower, and plenty of pulpy adventure elements, which have been a regular source of comics joy for me in recent years.

Finally, there’s the perfectly titled Loki: Ragnarok and Roll.  This new series from Boom Studios offers a twist to the story of Odin banishing trickster god Loki to Earth.  Rather than attempt conquest of the planet through violence and manipulation, in this series, Loki turns to the power of Rock and Roll.  Cover artist Alexis Ziritt is a beast of an illustrator whose work you’re bound to be knowing more of soon.  This favorite artist of the Heroes Con Drink and Draw is the perfect person to provide covers for this concept.boom_loki_001_a
