10. Buffy The Last Vampire Slayer #1

Due to be released this December, Buffy is back as we’ve never seen her before!

Can a lone Slayer save what’s left of humanity?

Buffy Summers is the last Slayer. Now in her 50s, she wages a one woman fight against the forces of darkness, who prey on humanity in the daylight unimpeded thanks to a magical catastrophe that has nearly blotted out the sun.

The same disaster robbed Buffy of her friends and ended the Slayer-line, forcing her into an endless guerilla war. That is, until she stumbles across something she hasn’t seen in a long time – hope, in the form of a prophecy and the young girl who carries it.

The Multiverse explodes as writer Casey Gilly (Femme Magnifique, You Died) and artist Joe Jaro (Firefly) bring you a dystopian tale of Buffy Summers as you’ve never seen her before for fans of Wonder Woman: Dead Earth, Batman: Last Knight On Earth, and Future State: Wonder Woman.

9. Attack On Titan Omnibus Volume 2

The latest collected edition from the massively successful Attack On Titan manga series, this outing sees the Survey Corps trying dangerous new tactics to reclaim their land from the human-devouring Titans!

It’s never been easier to attack Attack on Titan than with these new, giant-sized 3-in-1 omnibus editions! The Survey Corps develop a risky gambit – have Eren in Titan form attempt to repair Wall Rose, reclaiming human territory from the monsters for the first time in a century. But Titan-Eren’s self-control is far from perfect, and when he goes on a rampage, not even Armin can stop him! With the survival of humanity on his massive shoulders, will Eren be able to return to his senses? This omnibus includes volumes 4-6.

8. Devil’s Reign #1

Kingpin (AKA Wilson Fisk) has gone from crime boss to mayor of New York and his new-found political power (coupled with his rather large evil streak) could lead to the downfall of our favourite Marvel superheroes!

The story that’s been building for years is here! Wilson Fisk went from Kingpin to mayor of the biggest city in America and is going to bring his full criminal and political power to bear on the super heroes who call NYC home. The man who once destroyed Daredevil has set his sights on The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and more. And since it’s Fisk, once he takes them all down, you know he’s going to sign it.

CROSSBONES! TASKMASTER! TYPHOID MARY! SHOCKER! WHIPLASH! RHINO! KRAVEN! Fisk has an ARMY of super villains at his command—and this is just his opening salvo. For years, Fisk has waited for his time to strike, and YOU WON’T BELIEVE the aces he’s got up his sleeves!

6. Disney’s Stitch: Stitch & The Samurai Volume 1

Whilst on the run from galactic authorities, loveable alien Stitch finds himself mistaken for a tanuki and taken under the wing of a Samurai Warrior!

While fleeing the Galactic Federation, Stitch’s spaceship malfunctions and he makes an emergency landing… not in Hawaii, but in sengoku-era Japan! Discovered by the brutal warlord Lord Yamato and his clan, Stitch’s incomparable cuteness is no match for the battle-weary samurai, who decides to bring the “blue tanuki” home with him. Will Stitch’s love of chaos turn into a formidable advantage for the samurai’s influence? Or will his cute and fluffy form disarm the noble lord’s stern facade?

5. Swamp Thing: Green Hell #1

New from author Jeff Lemire and artist Doug Mahnke comes a DC Black Label gore-fest straight from the swamp!

The Earth is all but done. The last remnants of humanity cling to a mountaintop island lost in endless floodwater. The Parliaments of the Green, the Red, and the Rot all agree: it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start the cycle of life over again. And to do so, they’ve united their powers to summon an avatar—one of the most horrific monsters to ever stalk the surface of this forsaken planet. Against a creature like that, there can be no fighting back…unless you have a soldier who understands the enemy. Someone who has used its tactics before. Someone like Alec Holland.

Of course, it would help if Alec Holland hadn’t been dead for decades…

Jeff Lemire—the author of the smash hits Joker: Killer Smile and The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage, along with the graphic novel that inspired the television sensation Sweet Tooth—returns to Black Label with one of the greatest artists in modern DC history, Doug Mahnke, in tow! Together they’ll unleash a gory, gruesome monster mash, where the fate of humanity rests in the hands of someone who isn’t human at all!

WOW COMIX FREE COMIC BOOK DAY – 11/9/21

Due to the worldwide Free Comic Book Day having a scattered release in the UK this year, we have decided to put ours back a little so that we can make sure that all of the great free titles are available all together, at the same time.

So our revised date will be Saturday the 11th of September!

Free Comic Book Day you say?

Yup – To participate in Free Comic Book Day, simply go to your nearest Wow Comix shop (Stockport, Stretford or Bury) on the 11th of September and ask a member of staff for a free bag of exclusive Free Comic Book Day comics! Its THAT easy!

Each year, many of the major publishers release a one off special issue in celebration of the day and some of these titles over the years have become somewhat sought after due to the nature of them not being immediately available online!

There are two types of bag you can choose from, one that is child friendly and one with titles more suitable to teens and above. You can select which one you would like!
Only one bag will be available per customer, but fear not, it will be loaded with a great range of titles.

Below is just a tiny sample of what is coming up for FREE on the 11th of September. To see more of the titles that will be available follow this link!
