It’s Comic Shop Wednesday!  Haven’t been to your comic book shop lately?  We have six hi-res previews for borg.com readers courtesy of BOOM! Studios of what you’ll find in stores today–so you can see what you’re missing.

Look for Venus from writer Rick Loverd and artist Huang Danlan.  Pauline and the rest of the survivors from the Mayflower take stock of the base on Venus, but there’s a saboteur in their midst who’s sowing tension in the ranks.

We love writer Dan Abnett and artist I.N.J. Culbard’s Wild’s End: The Enemy Within.  The group of anthropomorphic townspeople is scattered in the woods of Lower Crowchurch as an alien threat returns.

In The Spire from writer Simon Spurrier and artist Jeff Stokely, Meera is held by the Zoarim at their camp as part of the Pax proceedings.  But she’s not alone.

In the ongoing sequel to John Carpenter’s Escape from New York by writer Christopher Sebela and artist Maxim Simic, Snake Plisskin prepares to defend his property from the government.  At any cost.

BOOM! Box, the BOOM! Studios imprint for kids titles, has two great issues out today from Peanuts and Munchkin.

Kick open the door.  Kill the monster.  Steal the treasure.  Any questions?

Munchkin is the popular role-playing card game created by Steve Jackson with its trademark cartoon fantasy heroes and monsters illustrated by John Kovalic.  A humorous parody on the role-playing genre, the card game has taken off with fantasy and non-fantasy fans alike, now available in expansion sets including Munchkin Conan, Munchkin Zombies, Munchkin Steampunk, Munchkin Adventure Time, and even Munchkin Cthulhu, among many other editions.

Tomorrow BOOM! Studios’ BOOM! Box division is releasing the first issue of a new comic book series featuring the characters, world, artwork and humor of the game.  And game players will want to add the series to their local comic book shop pull lists as each monthly issue will ship with an exclusive game card.  We have a preview of Issue #1, variant covers, and a peek at the first three game cards for you, courtesy of BOOM! Studios, after the break.

Written as an anthology, Issue #1 includes three stories.

Tom Siddell (Gunnerkrigg Court) is the writer of the first two stories with that familiar Munchkin art style drawn by Mike Holmes (Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time), with Fred Stresing colors, and Jim Campbell medieval lettering.  Story one asks the question:  What is a Munchkin?  Introducing readers to the nature of the characters in the role-playing game, and such vital concepts as the art and skill of betrayal and backstabbery.  If you haven’t played the card game you’ll discover quickly whether it is for you (it probably is).
