With the dozens of new titles from all the comic book publishers being released Wednesday, we thought we’d hone in on a few with the independent publishers you might miss. The first new Legenderry title featuring Vampirella is out tomorrow from Dynamite, as is a new Jungle Jim series and sci-fi series called Cluster. From the classic genre film world, BOOM! Studios is releasing new issues of Escape from New York and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Legenderry: Vampirella Issue #1 is packed full of great steampunk elements. It’s the first of three new series spinning out of the world created by Bill Willingham. King: Jungle Jim Issue #1 brings Flash Gordon creator Alex Raymond’s series to a modern audience. Great characters and artwork have the classic feel of Raymond’s original stories. BOOM! Studio’s new Cluster series is an interesting sci-fi story giving prisoners a chance to get out of life sentences if they’re willing to work in a futuristic military service.
Escape from New York, Issue #3 continues the BOOM! Studios adaptation of the further adventures of Snake Plissken. And Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Issue #3, also from BOOM!, follows the exploits of the apes from the successful reboot movie series.
