1101 -- "Acheron: Part I"

Returning to Alexandria from a critical food mission, the group realizes it isn't enough. Maggie proposes a new plan, potentially a suicide mission. What choice do they have? They must find more food for all their people in order to survive and efficiently rebuild Alexandria. If they don't, Alexandria falls, taking them down with it. Once on the road, a violent storm erupts forcing them underground into a subway tunnel. As nerves fray and suspicions increase, chaos ensues. The terror is relentless as our people get a glimpse of what Maggie and her group endured prior to returning to Alexandria. Meanwhile, those captured by the strange soldiers are relocated to another undisclosed location.

The group discovers a member did not make it to safety inside the subway car. Surrounded by walkers, going back out into the tunnel to search is a guaranteed death wish. All eyes are on Negan as the rule of survival shifts. It is no longer No Man Left Behind. The motto now is We Keep Going. With very little ammo and energy remaining, the group must ready themselves as the walkers have found a way inside the subway train. Meanwhile, Daryl is in his own intense hellish situation trying to find Dog and finding more than he expected; and Yumiko challenges the process at the Commonwealth outpost, which threatens her future and that of Eugene, Ezekiel and Princess.

Marvel Comics has announced a new era for Amazing Spider-Man with the title going thrice-monthly this fall.

The saga will kick off in October's Amazing Spider-Man #75, where Ben Reilly will return to take back the mantle of Spider-Man. Backed by the Beyond Corporation, the clone of Peter Parker is determined to be the best version of Spider-Man there ever was.

And as recent teasers showed, this could have fatal consequences for Peter Parker.

Here's what editor Nick Lowe said about the new era of Amazing Spider-Man:

"The whole point of working on Spider-Man is trying to put new unliftable weights on top of him -- physical, metaphysical, emotional, psychological -- and seeing if he can lift them. But what if that weight truly is too heavy? What if someone with the exact same skills and formative years could do better? Ben Reilly is back and, with Aunt May and Uncle Ben's lessons in the back of his mind as well, he's here to step in where Peter Parker failed. Can he accomplish things the original Spider-Man never could? These questions are what sold me on this story.

"When Zeb Wells started building this story it became apparent that it needed a narrative velocity and a team of the best of the best to make it happen. So we gathered some of the greatest writers and artists in comics to join us and the story got even better and bigger and more surprising."

Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar and Patrick Gleason are teaming with Wells.

"Zeb has proven through Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man/Doc Ock: Year One, and Hellions that he will bring the balance of hilarity and emotional devastation," Lowe said. "Kelly Thompson's work on Captain Marvel and Black Widow shows her to be the best mind for character work along with a fearless creativity that will keep you guessing. Saladin Ahmed is the rare writer who walks the tightrope of a book like his Eisner-winning Black Bolt to his smash hit Clone Saga' arc of Miles Morales: Spider-Man and his contributions shook us all.

"Fans from his time at the Distinguished Competition know Patrick Gleason isn't only an artistic visionary -- as proven recently from his Webhead covers -- but also a highly-skilled writer whose Marvel debut is going to be the shot heard round the comics world. Cody Ziglar is a new name in comics, but the work he did for the upcoming Disney+ She-Hulk show and Rick and Morty showed us at Marvel that he is part of the next generation of Marvel superstar writers and he has not disappointed here."


Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has set an August 31 release date for Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, a new animated movie.

"In Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, our team of heroes are besieged by the enemy forces of Shao Kahn -- forcing Raiden and his group of warriors into a deal to compete in a final Mortal Kombat that will determine the fate of the realms. Now our heroes must travel to Outworld in order to defend Earthrealm and, simultaneously, Scorpion must find the ancient Kamidogu before it's used to resurrect the One Being -- which would mean certain destruction of all things in the universe.€Time is short and the stakes are high in this action-packed continuation of the Mortal Kombat journey."

DYNAMITE'S VAMPIVERSE: Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new series Vampireverse as "the most expansive story for the character" from writers Tom Sniegoski and Jeannine Acheson and artist Daniel Maine.

Here's how Dynamite describes the story:

"Each thread across the fabric of time and space has its own Vampirella to protect their reality. Something, or someone, is suddenly hunting them down, stealing their precious life energies. It's up to the Vampirella we all know and love to gather her special sisters and take down this threat before it destroys the Artist, the creator of all of existence. Fans will meet such fun new characters like Vamp-Bot, Cave Vamp, The Invisible Vamp, and many more."

"When Jeannine and I were working on the 2021 Vampirella Valentine's Day Special, the idea for Vampiverse was hatched," Sniegoski said. "To see it actually becoming a reality is incredibly exciting, and I can't wait for folks to see what we've come up with."

Acheson said, "When we were coming up with the idea, we never imagined Dynamite would let us do it, but here we are! I'm thrilled about Vampiverse! It's awesome to be writing my first comic series alongside all of these talented writers and artists."

Cover artists will include Adam Hughes, Stephen Segovia, Maria Laura Sanspo and Meghan Hetrick, as well as cosplayers starting off with Rachel Hollon.
