The one thing that sticks out, at least with me, is the sheer number of times this character has been given new origins or has be revamped (no pun intended) over the decades. To be fair though, most don’t deal with the future like Vampirella 2017 #1 does here. She has changed much over the decades, but has always remained a kick ass vampire that takes no crap from anyone.
Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles released on December 2, 2015. My personal faves this week are Mystery Girl #1 and This Damned Band #5!

Tokyo. 1974. A rock band named Motherfather. Scratch that. Not A rock band, THE rock band. The seventies were a powerful time for musicians. Before the internet and before music television, live venues were the only place you could experience music. Sure, you could pop in an 8-track while driving or drop a vinyl record on the home phonograph but the true experience that is a live show was not something you could just watch. You had to be there. Rock musicians (no, almost all musicians) were almost deified in that era. I saw my first concert in 1977 and it was beyond my wildest dream. I continued to see band after band regularly until my thirties.
I tell you all this because if you missed this all then you have a need for a bit of background, an origin story if you will. But allow me to speak to This Damned Band #1 now that I’ve dropped some history on you.
If you’ve been paying attention to Paul Cornell’sWolverine series since he took over, you’ll already know that Wolverine has lost his famous healing factor and has been living without it. It looks like the “living” part of it will be coming to an end in September as Marvel Comics will release a four part weekly series titled “The Death of Wolverine.”
The mini-series will be written by comic’s newest wunderkind Charles Soule (She-Hulk, Swamp Thing, roughly ten billion other series) and will feature art by Steve McNiven (Civil War).
Check out McNiven’s cover for “The Death of Wolverine” and let us know what you think about this below.
