“DETHKLOK VS. THE GOON” (Dark Horse) — The crossover that is very likely to rock your face off and tattoo an inky black mark upon your soul is here, folks. Here’s hoping your affairs are in your order, because when Nathan Explosion, William Murderface and the rest of Adult Swim’s “Metalocalypse” cast face off against The Goon, there’s no way a single comic book can contain the collateral damage.
We brought you the exclusive announcement of this one-shot story back in March, along with a video promo for the project created by “Metalocalypse” creator Brendan Small. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to do so.
We gave you a peek inside “Jailbreak” last month, and now the first issue is finally hitting shelves this week. See what happens when the remaining Warriors set off to break Ajax out of jail!
Honorable Mention: “Doctor Who: Room With A Deja View” — I talked with comics gossip columnist and BleedingCool.com editor Rich Johnston back in April about his one-shot “Doctor Who” comic, and as MTV’s resident “Doctor Who” geek, I’m giving this one my stamp of approval. The story involves a murder perpetrated by “a member of a species that lives in the opposite direction to the timeline” — and the writer promises to offer readers a tale reminiscent of the much-celebrated, time-juggling (and terrifying) episode “Blink.” And that should be more than enough to pique “Who” fans’ interests.
