Armor X -
An emotionally troubled teen with a list of classmates to kill and a gun under his bed, receives alien armor to act out his revenge dreams? WTF indeed. Dynamite

Hot off of the TV adaption, comes George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones... the comics. Not a lot of news about the series other than Alex Ross and Mike S. Miller doing the covers for it. Also Tommy Patterson will be doing the interior art so if you're familar with Ross or Miller's style just picture something completely different and that's how it will look. This book is looking at a September release which breaks the August cycle we had going... damn."It has been fifteen years since I first edited A GAME OF THRONES, and it is a genuine joy to be revisiting and adapting this landmark novel into a format that suits it so perfectly," says Senior Editor at Random House Anne Groell. "George's writing has always been highly visual, painting rich, detailed and striking images in the reader's minds and hearts. And now seeing such a talented group of artists bringing that so vividly to life is truly exciting. I couldn't be more pleased with everything I have seen so far--and I can't wait for what is yet to come!"Ashley Wood and Comic Con -
And you thought we were done! I'm not sure if this is his first Comic Con, but he definitely hasn't been there in previous years... or I completely missed him.
