The Cyborg Super Soldier is Reborn This October in DEATHLOK #1!

He is the perfect killing machine. The apex weapon. The demolisher. Only he doesn’t know it! This October, a new legend is born in DEATHLOK #1 – the first explosive issue in an all-new ongoing series! Launching as part of the Avengers NOW! initiative, critically acclaimed creators Nathan Edmondson (Black Widow, The Punisher) and Mike Perkins (Captain America, Stephen King’s The Stand) provide a brand new spin on Deathlok like you’ve never seen him before!

After Michael Collins – there was Henry Hayes. A war veteran, a single parent. A good man who though he’d left his war behind. As a field medic, he has traveled to war zones to heal the wounded, unaware of his true purpose. Unbeknownst to him, he has been transformed and twisted into a new weapon for a new war – DEATHLOK! Operative, fighter, assassin and more – he is whatever his mysterious handlers need him to be.

Utilized as a deadly weapon rented out to the highest bidder, Hayes travels the globe toppling dictators and destabilizing regimes – his memories erased after each mission. All in the name of his mysterious corporate masters. Yet as he slowly uncovers the truth about his existence, he’ll struggle with the knowledge he’s been transformed into the ultimate weapon of mass destruction – and expose the disturbing legacy of the many Deathloks that came before him.

Hunted by S.H.I.E.L.D. and unaware of his true purpose, the one man army will be forced to choose – is he man…or machine? The answer lies in the high-octane first issue as the next blockbuster Avengers NOW! series debuts this October in DEATHLOK #1!

How far will a man go to save his son? Charlie Wormwood has a pretty normal life - a house, a wife, a job, and a kid. With his son sick, he begins treading a dangerous path to make things right. Teaching in prison gives him many “opportunities” but what problems will he create as he walks into the prison of darkness for his family?

Second one comes from Archaia, as another Jim Henson gem is unearthed.

Solicitation info below:

Jim Henson’s The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow HC

Imprint: Archaia

Writers: Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl, Roger Langridge
Artist: Roger Langridge

WHY WE LOVE IT: After the success of Archaia’s Eisner Award-winning graphic novel Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand, we are proud to partner once again with The Jim Henson Company to bring to life another previously unknown piece of the Jim Henson Legacy. The only thing more exciting than finding the script for the project was securing the talents of the amazing Roger Langridge, the Eisner Award-winning writer and illustrator of The Muppet Show Comic Book and Snarked, to adapt and illustrate the project!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Eisner and Harvey Award winner Roger Langridge gets to bring to life hilarious, never-before-seen puppet creations by Jim Henson in an oversized all-ages adventure.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Turkey Hollow is a picturesque town where hundreds of years ago, unbeknownst to the citizens, a meteorite landed near a small brook on the outskirts of town. One Thanksgiving, while young Timmy Henderson practices his guitar, he’s accompanied by strange, unearthly, musical sounds. That meteorite wasn’t a rock at all but an egg holding seven furry, goofy monsters, each with a unique musical sound! After the initial shock, Timmy befriends the lovable creatures, who follow him all around Turkey Hollow. Not everyone takes a liking to the visitors, though, and it’s up to Timmy to protect his new friends and save Thanksgiving!
