Head Lopper #NewComicBookDay 12th September 2018


New Comic Book Day including Head Lopper and Mystery Science Theatre 3000

How quickly the week goes by. It’s already new comic book day again. Here are Geeky Brummie’s picks for the comics available from your local comic book store including Head Lopper and Mystery Science Theatre 3000.

Those of you hoping to pick up Star Trek vs. The Transformers will have to wait until next week now as the publishing schedule has pushed it back a week.


Title: Head Lopper & The Knights of Venoriah

Publisher: Image

Issue No.: 9

Creative Team: Andrew MacLean. Cover by Andrew MacLean. Variant Cover by Alan Brown.

Perfect jumping on point as Head Lopper begins a new story arc. Andrew MacLean’s art is stunning and the story leaps off the page. The books are published quarterly so you get a huge amount of content for your money. Highly recommended. 

From the Publisher:


Agatha’s got legs. Venoriah readies for war. Arlen falls off a bird. A thief steals a knife. HEAD LOPPER is back! “


Title: Mystery Science Theatre 3000

Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Joel Hodgson, Harold Buchholz, Matt McGinnis, Mary Robinson, Seth Robinson, Sharyl Volpe, Todd Nauck, Mike Manly, Michael Heisler, Mike Manly and Wes Dzioba. Cover by Todd Nauck. Variant Cover by Steve Vance.

Taking the hugely successful TV series into the realms of 2D at Dark Horse, Jonah, Crow and Tom finally make the leap to comics. What will happen when they step in to the panels of a comic?

From the Publisher:

“The riffing hilarity of Mystery Science Theater 3000 comes to comics when Kinga Forrester pairs her Kingachrome Liquid Medium with her latest invention-the Bubbulat-R! Jonah Heston, Crow T. Robot, and Tom Servo find themselves thrust into the 2-D world of public domain comics, with riffing as their only defense!

• Created for comics by Joel Hodgson!

• The hit Netflix show has come to comics!

• Variant cover by longtime MST3K DVD artist Steve Vance!


Title: Cemetery Beach

Publisher: Image Comics

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Warren Ellis and Jason Howard. Cover by Jason Howard. Variant Cover by Jason Howard.

Warren Ellis is a a comics legend. I’m really enjoying his The Wild Storm series over at DC. Teaming up with his Trees creator Jason Howard this promises to be his most action packed book yet – “It might be the most relentless action book I’ve ever written.” 

From the Publisher:

“From the creators of the acclaimed TREES graphic novels, which are currently being adapted for television, comes something completely different. A professional pathfinder, his only ally a disaffected young murderess, breaks out of a torture cell in pursuit of his worst extraction scenario ever: escaping on foot across a sprawling and secret off-world colony established a hundred years ago and filled with generations of lunatics. WARREN ELLIS & JASON HOWARD ignite a high-speed new action serial.
