One comic. Two stories. One shared theme: love in the face of death. A group of savage Vikings in 946 A.D. are pitted against a band of equally-savage vampires to protect a monastery from invasion in "Bloodlust: Deceiver of the Gods." Thousands of years later in the far-flung future, a man fights his way through an alien-infested space ship in an attempt to return to his wife and escape to safety in "Symptom of the Universe." Written by Dirk Manning and drawn by Rich Bonk and Owen Gieni, respectively, LOVE STORIES (TO DIE FOR) #1 is a full-color one-shot 48-page flip book published by Image Comics/Shadowline that hits stores on September 4 for $4.99.
Before I begin, I will try and stay spoiler free but I might let something slip. Consider this a spoiler warning now. What a solid issue we have this month and I tell you, this book keeps getting better and better each issue. Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly are churning out some amazing work. In fact the entire team is producing some of the finest Star Wars stories ever told in comic format. The overall pace and structure of the issue is spot on and unlike other books, the jumping around makes sense. You have 3 major plot points going on in this issue and they are: 1- Luke and Wedge are on board the Star Destroyer Devastator 2- Han is facing some old enemies 3- Leia encounters something from an old era long gone.
Take a gander at some of next weeks new releases. This is just a tease on what we would call the top 10 plus one runner up. Take a look and tell us what you think!

Batman Beyond was the Bat character set of my 90s adolescence. Sure, the earlier Timm Batman Animated was legendary, but I dug the futuristic Bats. I've been a fan of the resurgence comics featuring those characters. New adventures. New characters. New daring future!
