Prepping for Descender Vol. 1 and a new site feature

We're preparing for a new feature here at Too Many Comics, and we're using our favorite title of 2015, Descender, to help launch it.

We've grown accustomed to our quick, debut issue reviews since the show began, but each month we'll start tackling the first story arc of specific titles. There's no better way to start than with the aforementioned, Descender, from Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen by way of Image Comics.

Watch out for those beginning soon. To prep, order Vol. 1 of Descender at your local comic shop, or through Amazon.

UTENSILS DOWN, HANDS UP! WELCOME TO STARVE!

Once the world's most famous chef, Gavin Cruikshank's been in a self-imposed exile for years. His little foodie television program has since evolved into STARVE, an arena sport that pits chef against chef for the pleasure of their super-rich patrons. It's a stain on a once-noble profession, and Chef Gavin is ready to go to war to stop it. Two things stand in his way: his arch rival Roman Algiers, and his adult daughter Angie, who probably just wants her dad back and acting normal.  

Whipsmart world-building and a creative dream team (DMZ, The Massive, Star Wars, Loveless, Hellboy, The Sandman) come together for a brand new monthly series! 

Airboy #1 preview

Worlds and minds explode in a brand-new series!

When acclaimed comics author JAMES ROBINSON (Starman, Fantastic Four) is hired to write a reboot of the 1940s action hero Airboy, he's reluctant to do yet another Golden Age reboot. Just what the hell has happened to his career–?! His marriage?! His life?! Hey, it's nothing that a drink can't fix.

It's after one such night of debauchery with artist GREG HINKLE that the project really comes into its own. Quite literally. Because Airboy himself appears to set the two depraved comic book creators on the straight and narrow.

But is the task too much for our hero?
