Wynonna Earp banner

It’s a supernatural Western from a creator-owned property published by Image Comics and IDW Publishing.  Wynonna Earp is a modern-day gunslinger.  And demon hunter.  She’s the brainchild of comic book writer Beau Smith.  Based on his comic books about a present-day, great-granddaughter of the famous lawman Wyatt Earp, Wynonna’s story isn’t your standard Western fare.  Think in terms of a dark Wild, Wild West and you’re halfway there.

After years on the run and in juvenile detention, Wynonna Earp is finally coming home.  The only problem is no one back home wants her to return.  But when she becomes the town’s only hope of eradicating mysterious demons, Wynonna must choose which side of the law she wants to fight on in order to clear the name of her legendary great grandfather Wyatt Earp once and for all.

Wynonna Earp hails from executive producer and showrunner Emily Andras, who created the awesome, kickass woman-focused shows Lost Girl and Killjoys.  The 13-episode Canada-produced series stars Melanie Scrofano (Damien, Gangland Undercover) as Wynonna, Tim Rozon (Being Human, Instant Star) as Doc Holliday, and Shamier Anderson (Defiance, Constantine) as Agent Dolls.

MarsAttacks-Obliterated-pr-1-9aba0

No franchise is safe from IDW Publishing’s Mars Attacks.  So far mars Attacks has had mash-ups with Mars Attacks Popeye, Mars Attacks the Ghostbusters, Mars Attacks Judge Dredd, Mars Attacks KISS (yep, the band), Mars Attacks Miss Fury, Mars Attacks Spike (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and even Mars Attacks Strangers in Paradise (Terry Moore’s long-running series).

Today, IDW Publishing releases a parody of the classic comic book series about classics themselves–Classics Illustrated–with its new title Mars Attacks Obliterated.  Issue #1 takes on three classics:  Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe.  Below we’re previewing today’s release, courtesy of IDW Publishing.
