There are only two digital comics from Dynamite Entertainment this week, although the Dynamite Crime Noir Sale is still on at ComiXology.
After disguising themselves as a couple of hot chicks to avoid a grisly death, Milky and Dave are taken aboard the Bomondian mothership. Meanwhile, Ghost, Jim and Mrs Boggins set off on their own mission to fix up the battered milk float in the hopes of escaping Crafton Hill and the alien attack. Lucy’s fate at the hands of the evil Lord Moofu is also revealed…

Here are the latest digital comics from Europe Comics
The leaders of the French Republic are among the best when it comes to shady deals. The latest in a long line has led to some “embarrassing” documents that must be recovered from a disgraced senator and deposited in a Belgian bank. But the Russians, who are part of the deal, see their chance to get ahold of the documents themselves. Only just back on duty, and still obsessed with finding the kidnapped Manon, Sisco will have to hit the ground running…
KARMEN Part 1 & 2
This is a graphic novel about death and suicide… but not in the way you think. It’s about death that can be reversable, when and if the right angels are looking. The dead person here is Catalina, a self-absorbed student who kills herself out of heartbreak. The angel is Karmen, an angel of the facetious, unusual sort. Her capacity for empathy is so great that she leads “her” dead on a journey toward redemption and, believe it or not, back to life!
We know the brilliant writer of the Rougon-Macquart series and the committed author of the open letter “J’accuse…!” but what do we know about his private life? Who were the women in his life? How did they help him to accomplish his work? At what sacrifice? A remarkable fresco that takes us back to the end of the 19th century, to the heart of an ever-changing France and the city of Paris, full of artists and workers.
ONE OF THOSE DAYS
1982. Leiva, Manu and El Canijo are three friends who always go everywhere together. They share their struggles, concerns, hopes, and fears. And their greatest fear of all is the end of the world, predicted by American preachers to occur on the afternoon of October 2, 1982. With the help of a few everyday objects, they will build masks, suits and everything necessary to survive the final judgment at all costs. Although not everything will end as they imagined…
LAST OF THE ATLASES C11
Birds wasting away in a national park, refusing to migrate. Identical geometric markings on the wings of completely different insect species. A pillar of dust in the desert. A small-time hood travels to India’s shipbreaking yards in search of a giant nuclear-powered construction robot. A big-time crime boss makes a killing off the Algerian Revolution, in a world where it happened fifteen years later than in our own. Four star creators join talents on a vast canvas that takes in the entire French 20th century.
A TALE OF TWO ARTHURS Book 1
A Tale of Two Arthurs is an impressionistic chronicle of two very different men: Jack Arthur Johnson, the black American boxer, and Arthur Cravan, the white French poet and provocateur. These two men fought an improbable boxing match in Barcelona in 1916 which acts as the pivot point of this double-portrait which is also a kind of mirror: for despite their differences they were both fiercely independent individuals who in their own ways defied the mores of their time with a mixture of bravado, intelligence, and brute strength.
1946: The Dutch have been driven out of Indonesia by the Japanese invasion, but they refuse to recognize the country’s declaration of independence. In an attempt to regain their former colony, the government mobilizes the Royal Dutch Indian Army. When they fail to take control, an unofficial force is sent to subdue the “terrorists.” Among the volunteers is Johan Knevel, who has personal reasons for joining: he wants to find out what happened to his Indonesian nurse…
The dark days of war are not getting any brighter in occupied Brussels. Spirou and Fantasio are on the brink of hunger and homelessness, but their ingenuity and gumption allow them to survive. While our two heroes are bringing what joy they can to the children of Belgium, the iron fist of the Nazis is tightening its grip on the country.
