Who would want to travel back in time? Okay, there’s probably a decent percentage of people who would say yes. Now, would you want to travel back in time to a winery, because when you traveled back, an exciting party would be happening onsite? There are even more people that would find that scenario intriguing. All right, now for the question that will cover almost everyone else alive – would you want to travel back in time, in a magical winery, where the only way to travel back would be to drink wine?

Two of the main characters stare up at a night sky filled with a brightly lit full moon and millions of stars. The cover page for Generation Gone #1 displays this wondrous image along with introductory dialogue from Elena and Nick, which immediately indicates something is amiss within their relationship.

What would you do if someone called you a drama queen? Would you get defensive or laugh it off, because you knew it couldn’t possibly be true? We’re laughing, right? Well, let’s just say we’re ever so lucky that John Allison, creator and writer of Giant Days, knew what path to take.

Image Comics celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year, and they have brought back titles in various ways, including Spawn and Youngblood. They have also created a “one-time printing in honor of the anniversaries” for The Darkness 20th Anniversary Collection, which includes nine issues and a preview. This collection includes issues one through six of The Darkness Origins, The Darkness/Superman 1 and 2, and The Darkness/Batman, and the cover page of this trade paperback brilliantly showcases the first story.

Here – we – go. As if the first issue in the Samaritan series didn’t grab our attention enough, Issue #2 takes readers for an exhilarating ride as Sam tries to track down any connections to the President of the United States that will send him to prison. With such a large target and a wealth of resources at his disposal, it isn’t going to be easy to stay hidden or alive.

Out of the darkness, from the depths of a cave, a monstrous growl echoes out into the open world, where a father and hired warriors are searching for his lost daughter. As the older, hunched-over man walks closer to the lip of the entrance, the source of that noise is identified. From the shadows comes a gigantic paw stepping out into the light with jagged claws, but the wolf’s head does not pale in comparison. Raging orange eyes stare back at you with its mouth open wide, teeth ready to dig in and tongue salivating at the soon-to-be attacked meal.

When the summer temperature is too much for extended outside play, parents sometimes have to find fun indoor activities. Aquariums provide that opportunity for kids to beat the heat, while also watching and learning about an extensive variety of life. Let’s explore some of the ways you and your family can get cool by exploring the many elements that different aquariums have to offer.

Previously on Irredeemable Premier Edition Volume 3, “The greatest superhero, Plutonian, turns against his former team, the Paradigm, and the ensuing chaos seems irreversible. This is not just a tale of hero-turned-villain, it describes the vindictiveness associated with god-like powers.” Knowing that Plutonian might not be on their side one day, some members of the Paradigm made a pact with an alien race to solve their potential problem. The aliens returned, a battle ensued, Plutonian was captured using advanced technology, and the world was safe.

The sign of a good story sometimes comes in the form of presenting a jumping-on point at a later time, allowing new readers to take part in the story’s world without fully understanding what’s previously taken place. For Postal Volume 5, it’s exactly what you can expect to find as you dive into the town of Eden, and those looking to maintain its prosperity or burn it to the ground.

Star Trek: Boldly Go #9 and its story have a direct correlation with the cover page. The regular cover artwork has a calming effect with a serene image of Uhura at the forefront. As she looks out into the distance, Spock and other Vulcans stand behind her, as if patiently waiting, expecting something to happen. The nuances of this scene provide a wonderful sense of anticipation for what you’re about to experience as you flip through the pages. George Caltsoudas is the artist for this main cover page, as there are three additional variant covers, and he knows how to translate the story within onto the cover page. Another perfect example of his abilities can be seen in Issue #3, where feelings of anxiety bubble to the surface as the Borg land on an alien planet with dramatic force.
