A few choice selections from the comics due out October 10th:
Evil Ernie #1
Description: ORIGIN OF EVIL PART 1!
Ernest Fairchild was a kind and gentle soul…until one day something in him snapped, leading him to one of the most notorious killing sprees in American history. With 665 kills to his name, ‘Evil Ernie’ requires ONE more murder to complete the ritual he started and seal his deal with the Devil. Problem is: he’s just been EXECUTED! What led an ordinary boy to become a leather-clad angel of death? How does he wield such blasphemous power? And what is the secret behind his hideous smiley-face button?
This October, you may hate the sin, but you’ll LOVE the SINNER!
Jesse Blaze Snider (HULK: LET THE BATTLE BEGIN) and JASON CRAIG (FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH) dive into the heart of darkness with Dynamite’s bold, terrifying new relaunch of EVIL ERNIE!

Description: Operating out of a tiny office on Madison Avenue in the early 1960s, a struggling company called Marvel Comics introduced a series of superhero characters with eye-catching bright costumes, smart banter, and compellingly human flaws that thrilled not just children but also pop artists, public intellectuals, and campus radicals, weaving a tapestry of stories that would become the most elaborate fictional narrative in history and serve as a modern American mythology for millions of readers.
Throughout the decades-long journey to a multi-billion-dollar enterprise, Marvel’s identity has continually shifted, careening between scrappy underdog and corporate behemoth. Marvel Comics packs anecdotes and analysis into a gripping narrative of how a small group of people on the cusp of failure created one of the most dominant pop cultural forces in contemporary America.
