Time for this weeks new comics. Here are Geeky Brummie’s picks for the comics available today from your local comic book store including Firefly, Uncanny X-Men, Mister Miracle and Alien3 which was delayed from last week.


Title: Firefly

Publisher: Boom! Studio

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Writer –  Greg Pak : Illustrator –  Dan McDaid : Cover Illustrator –  Lee Garbett

People have been fascinated by the story of Mal Reynolds and his crew since their short but glorious TV debut. Comics have helped fans learn more about this wonderful group of characters. Now BOOM! Studios takes us back to how it all began in this new series. If you’re a Browncoat this series comes highly recommended.

From the Publisher:

“BOOM! Studios, along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers), presents an all-new era of the pop culture phenomenon Firefly , as one of the most demanded stories in the franchise’s history is revealed for the first time! Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job-legal or not-to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Find out now how his story began as BOOM! Studios delves into Mal’s past, how he met his first mate Zoe and the real truth about the War of Unification.the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike. Focusing on family, loyalty, identity, and the price of redemption, writer Greg Pak (Mech Cadet Yu, Totally Awesome Hulk) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd: Mega City Zero) take you back to the battleground where Mal’s journey began. “


Title: Uncanny X-Men

Publisher: Marvel

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Writers :  Ed Brisson,  Kelly Thompson &  Matthew Rosenberg : Illustrator –  Mahmud A. Asrar : Cover Illustrator –  Leinil Francis Yu

A lot of interesting things have been happening in the X titles recently. Now Marvel are relaunching the Uncanny name with this 10 part weekly epic. Initial impressions are positive, I just hope we see more of Lockheed. 

From the Publisher:

“New ongoing series kicking off with a 10-part weekly epic, the flagship X-Men series that started it all is back and better than ever! Starting with a mysterious and tragic disappearance, the X-Men are drawn into what might be…their final adventure?! X-Fan favorite writers Ed Brisson (EXTERMINATION), Matthew Rosenberg (PHOENIX RESURRECTION) and Kelly Thompson (MR. & MRS. X) and all-star artists Mahmud Asrar (X-MEN RED), R.B. Silva (X-MEN BLUE), Yildiray Cinar (WEAPON X) and Pere Pérez (ROGUE AND GAMBIT) join forces to bring you… X-MEN DISASSEMBLED?! “


Title: Mister Miracle

Publisher: DC Comics

Issue No.: 12

Creative Team: Writer –  Tom King : Illustrator –  Mitch Gerads : Cover Illustrator –  Nick Deringt on

This is the final issue in what has been an incredible story. King and Gerads have done something amazing with one of my favourite New Gods characters. I have no idea what is going to happen and I’m very excited to see how it all ends.

From the Publisher:

“It’ll be a miracle if you can get through this mind-bending conclusion with your sanity intact! After his epic battle with Darkseid, Scott Free sees life a whole new way: he’s the new Highfather of New Genesis, and he’s madly in love with his wife and child. But what if it’s all a lie? Did Mister Miracle really escape death way back in issue #1? No one really knows but Tom King and Mitch Gerads! “


Title: William Gibson’s Alien3

Publisher: Dark Horse

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Writers –  Johnnie Christmas &  William Gibson : Illustrator –  Tamra Bonvillain : Cover Illustrator –  Johnnie Christmas

This was my featured pick on the show last week.  Unfortunately it was delayed a week but I highly recommend you grab it. This is a completely different take on the story to the one that finally made it to the screen. This adaptation is not to be missed.

From the Publisher:

“This is the official adaptation of the original screenplay for Alien 3, written by William Gibson, the award-winning science fiction author of the cyberpunk cult classic Neuromancer. You’ll see familiar characters and places-but not all is the same in this horrifying Cold War thriller!

After the deadly events of the film Aliens, the spaceship Sulaco carrying the sleeping bodies of Ripley, Hicks, Newt, and Bishop are intercepted by the Union of Progressive Peoples. What the U.P.P forces don’t expect is another deadly passenger that is about to unleash chaos between two governmental titans intent on developing the ultimate cold war weapon of mass destruction.

• Based on the original screenplay by Neuromancer’s William Gibson!

• Adaptation and art by Johnnie Christmas-co-creator of Margaret Atwood’s Angel Catbird and creator of Image Comics’ Firebug.

• Featuring some of the most famous characters in the Alien film canon: Hicks, Bishop, Newt, and Ripley.

“Gibson was able to take the franchise’s existing elements of body horror and blow them out to unspeakably terrifying degrees. He put the aliens in new environments and warped forms. He built out the world of the series without over-explaining or hitting the Cold War metaphors too hard.” -Vulture “
