Who doesn’t love the anticipation of new releases and things that they plan on doing? Every month there seems to be something new and exciting ready to hit the market for our consumption.
Being ready to embrace them with open arms is all we can really do.
To showcase this, I’ll be sharing my top 3 for each category of things that I look forward to this month right here, right now!
Sancia, Clef, and Berenice have gone up against plenty of long odds in the past. But the war they’re fighting now is one even they can’t win.
This time, they’re not facing robber-baron elites, or even an immortal hierophant, but an entity whose intelligence is spread over half the globe—a ghost in the machine that uses the magic of scriving to possess and control not just objects, but human minds.
To fight it, they’ve used scriving technology to transform themselves and their allies into an army—a society—that’s like nothing humanity has seen before. With its strength at their backs, they’ve freed a handful of their enemy’s hosts from servitude, even brought down some of its fearsome, reality-altering dreadnaughts. Yet despite their efforts, their enemy marches on—implacable. Unstoppable.
Now, as their opponent closes in on its true prize—an ancient doorway, long buried, that leads to the chambers at the center of creation itself—Sancia and her friends glimpse a chance at reaching it first, and with it, a last desperate opportunity to stop this unbeatable foe. But to do so, they’ll have to unlock the centuries-old mystery of scriving’s origins, embark on a desperate mission into the heart of their enemy’s power, and pull off the most daring heist they’ve ever attempted.
And as if that weren’t enough, their adversary might just have a spy in their ranks—and a last trick up its sleeve.
I haven’t started this trilogy but it’s nice to know that it’s about to come to an end with this third and final book! I look forward to the day I finally dive into this world!
COMIC BOOK RELEASES.
Thom is moving cross-country with his family and dragging the past along with them. His son, Jamie, is seeing monsters in the bedroom closet and will not let them go. A tale of existential familial horror by JAMES TYNION IV (THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH, RAZORBLADES) and GAVIN FULLERTON (BOG BODIES, Bags).
Writer James Tynion IV has been on a role with his horror stories and these non-superhero stories sound so promising!
Crisis on Infinite Earths. Infinite Crisis. Final Crisis. And now…Dark Crisis! The epic event years in the making is finally here! Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League are dead. The remaining heroes are left to protect the world from an onslaught of violent attacks by DC’s greatest villains! Can the legacy heroes step out of the shadows of the classic heroes to form a new Justice League? And will that be enough to stop a darkness greater than anything they’ve ever faced from destroying everything? Don’t miss out on the first issue of the blockbuster event of the summer!
It’s time for the next biggest crisis in the DC Universe and it’s about to get dark! My expectations are low for these nowadays but I hope they got some good ideas under their sleeves.
There is no forgiveness for Black Adam. This is the reality Teth-Adam, immortal man of indomitable will, must face when he discovers he has been infected with an incurable plague destroying his immortality. Haunted by the specter of centuries of dark deeds, Black Adam transfers his powers to a worthy successor who will redeem Adam’s legacy and defend their ancestral homeland of Kahndaq, only to subsequently become mystically handcuffed to him when Adam’s plague is arrested, giving birth to perhaps the most volatile and dysfunctional super-team in DC history!
Powered by stunning art by Rafa Sandoval (Justice League) and breathtaking painted covers by Irvin Rodriguez (Detective Comics), writer Christopher Priest (Deathstroke, Justice League) brings his trademark wit and skill for character deconstruction to an entirely fresh examination of the man you love to hate! Get ready to ride the lightning!
Just in time for the upcoming Black Adam movie starring Dwayne Johnson, it’s no surprise that new stories featuring the iconic villain are being created! It remains to be seen if it’ll be worth picking up.
TV SHOW RELEASES.
The wait is over! Shit is about to hit the fan and Homelander is for sure going craaaaazy this time around!
I’m very much annoyed that they changed Ms. Marvel’s powers for her live-action debut and I hope, for their sake, that everything else about this show will compensate for such creative freedom!
It has been a while since this show hadn’t risen from the dead and I look forward to this final season.
I’m among those who thought the idea behind this was unnecessary for the Toy Story franchise but, hey, I trust Pixar to have fun with it, and hopefully, so will I!
You already know this one will inevitably get Oscar nominations! Austin Butler giving us his best take on Elvis and it looks good.
This one was one of my most anticipated horror movies and I’m so glad it’s finally coming out after getting postponed. Based on the short story by writer Joe Hill, I’m convinced it’s going to be S.C.A.R.Y.
VIDEO GAME RELEASES.
The third month in a row without any major video game releases. Still glad for this, considering the insane backlog I already have. However, June is usually the month where huge video game announcements are made and I look forward to those!
Can you believe that we’re almost already halfway through the year? It’s shocking when you start realizing how fast time flies… June, however, is also the month when summer begins, and who says summer also says vacation! On the 19th, I’m out of my little city and heading out to Europe and I’m really excited to completely disconnect myself from everything here, especially work just so I can explore and enjoy life minus all the workload. I do look forward to maintaining somewhat of a balance despite all the chaos that’ll probably come before and during vacation. Let’s do this!
Thank you all for checking out my monthly anticipation post!
Now tell me what you’re looking forward to this month! Any new releases? Anything exciting you plan on doing?
