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!
April Coutts-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.
Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the second, April was dead.
Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.
I missed out on her last book but read pretty much everything else by her and am sure that this latest story will be a lot of fun! Not sure when I’ll ever get around to it though.
COMIC BOOK RELEASES.
Edison Crane is the world’s smartest man, but what happens when he’s targeted by an entire CLUB of geniuses who also fly too close to the sun? Meet THE ICARUS SOCIETY.
THE MAGIC ORDER and KING OF SPIES writer MARK MILLAR launches a brand-new five-issue series starring EDISON CRANE, his favorite creation-and this time he’s brought along amazing Star Wars artist MATTEO BUFFAGNI to blow you all away.
A new story by Mark Millar! Will it be worth checking out? To be determined…
AFTER THE REIGN COMES THE DAWN! In the wake of Wilson Fisk’s violent and visceral last act, it’s a new era for New York and the Man Without Fear! With a groundbreaking creative team returning to usher in an all-new chapter, Matt Murdock has no choice but to leave behind everything he’s ever known, and ELEKTRA is the last vestige of his former life. Everything Matt Murdock thought it meant to be DAREDEVIL is about to change, including the challenges he will have to face in the cowl!
Writer Chip Zdarsky is on fire lately and is getting a lot of attention and I definitely plan on checking out more of his content soon!
At the end of World War II, Earth was invaded by giant mechanized Parademons from a planet called APOKOLIPS. The planet’s protectors, the Justice Society of America, were devastated and with them, the age of Super Heroes came to an end, and the era of the Mech began.
In the ensuing years, the world has stockpiled colossal battle suits piloted by elite warriors, waiting for the day Apokolips returns. But when Kal-El, the last son of a dying world, crash lands in Metropolis with his own warsuit, he’ll face down two of earth’s greatest Mech fighters, The Flash and Batman.
The dawn of a brave new mechanized DCU is here from the rising star creative team of Kenny Porter (Flash: The Fastest Man Alive, Fearless) and Baldemar Rivas (Robins, Batman: Urban Legends).
This sounds fun. With that recent story where our favourite superheroes were dinosaurs putting things into perspective, this new story with mechazords sounds just as hilarious. No guarantee that these stories are any good though.
TV SHOW RELEASES.
I’m waiting for my girlfriend to catch up on season 3 to finally check out this fourth season but it does sound like the final two movie-length episodes of this season (released as “volume 2”) are epic!
My most anticipated show of the year is coming to an end with this second part. The first part was fantastic, as usual, ending on an excellent cliffhanger. I’m a bit sad that it will all come to an end this summer but I’m convinced it’ll be a most excellent ending.
If you’re looking for some animated entertainment, then you can definitely queue up the third season of Harley Quinn coming out later this month!
I’m not a huge fan of the MCU Thor but I am prepared for the quirkiness of this fourth movie and what it’ll offer for the next phase of this live-action universe.
I’ve seen all of Jordan Peele’s movies so far and was captivated by the premise of each of these movies. NOPE looks and sounds as good as the previous movies and I am curious to see what it has to offer.
While I was skeptical at first regarding what this movie might have to offer, with the first trailer, I was quite convinced that it might not be so bad.
VIDEO GAME RELEASES.
The fourth month in a row without any major video game releases. Then again, I wouldn’t have much time for anything new right now. But… There is this cute-concept game coming out on July 19th, 2022! I’d only get it on discount and if it’s received positively by fellow critics/gamers.
The first half of July will be the final half of my vacation. I still have a couple more days in the south of France before we (me, my girlfriend, her twin sister, and her twin sister’s boyfriend) head to Italy. I do look forward to discovering a country rich in history, scorching heat, and also FOOD. I expect to be mostly eating all the time and I’m definitely not going to complain considering how much I love Italian food.
I also look forward to the second half of July, to return home, and get back to my own routine but I know, once home, that I’ll be compelled to dream about more vacation time in more places around the world that I haven’t visited yet. It’s going to be tough to not get lost in all the daydreaming that awaits but I’m sure I’ll find ways to be happy to be doing things that I love too. Deep down, I’m also going to be so happy to be home, not having to worry about passports and infernal conditions in airports and whatnot. 😛
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?
