A “CLONE CONSPIRACY” chapter!
Hobie Brown has been many things over the years. A genius inventor. A thief. The good Samaritan. With the help of Spider-Man, he managed to turn his life around, embracing the mantle of the Prowler to become a superhero!
But now his new life as head of Parker Industries security has been compromised.
The Prowler was killed in action, to be reborn as the right hand man of the Jackal!
But just what hold does the Jackal have over the Prowler?
Are Hobie’s memories truly his own, or have they been tampered with the instil loyalty to his new boss?
The CLONE CONSPIRACY looks set to be one of the creepier SPIDER-MAN stories of recent times, and it gets murkier and more complex in the pages of THE PROWLER #1!!!

SECRET WARS is well and truly under way, with some freaking awesome Battlezones explored already. But what about life outside of the Shield?
The Battlezone so dangerous that it’s walled off from the rest of the world? A place where men and women are sent to die in the most horrific ways possible?
Get ready to explore the wastelands folks, a desolate place where the MARVEL ZOMBIES roam free, feasting on all those who dared challenge Doom!
And if the Zombies don’t get you, then the horde of Ultron drones will be more than happy to eliminate your worthless organic imperfect life!
Good luck in avoiding the two, and may the lord Doom have mercy on you if you get caught between the two!
It’s AGE OF ULTRON VS. MARVEL ZOMBIES, in one of the more bonkers offerings of the fantastic SECRET WARS!
Check out the preview and then CONTACT US to get the madness added to your pull-lists...

This is the one that we know you’ve all been waiting for. The infamous Sith Lord finally gets his own solo series, as DARTH VADER #1 debuts!
Hot on the heels of the epic STAR WARS #1, comes the opportunity to revisit the classic Star Wars saga from a whole new perspective! Written by superstar writer Kieron Gillen (JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY, THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, YOUNG AVENGERS), DARTH VADER #1 picks up following aftermath of A NEW HOPE, with Vader’s pride well and truly dented.

With artwork by Salvador Larroca, this will be one gorgeous looking comic – and don’t just take our word for it, check out the preview pages for yourself!

Do you like Zombies? What about Robots? How about seeing the two battle it out for total domination of a post-apocalyptic Earth, with only a few human survivors remaining?
If you answered yes to all three of those questions, then boy do we have an awesome new comic for your reading pleasure.
Following the outbreak of war between the Zombies and Robots, the world has been decimated by nukes. However, all was not wiped out. In fact, things just adapted to become… stranger. The Robots have upgraded, whilst the Zombies have mutated even further! It’s a terrifying world for humanity’s last survivors to enter, as “Inherit the Earth” begins here!
But that’s not all folks. Also in this issue is the back-up strip, “The Orphan,” showcasing the lunacy and terrible reality of this world for a lone survivor in the ZvR universe!
Check out the preview for just a little taste of the insanity which ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS provides, then drop us a line if you areinterested!

This is it folks… the biggest comic book of 2015 is here! STAR WARS finally makes its epic return to the pages of Marvel Comics, just in time to whet your appetite for the film later this year!
The dust has settled, and Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance have managed what few dared dream was possible. Not only did they manage to launch an offensive on the Galactic Empire’s superweapon – the Death Star – but they actually managed to destroy it! But when you are waging a war for freedom against a force as mighty as the Empire, one major victory for the Rebels is nothing but a minor setback for the Emperor and his fearsome enforcer, Darth Vader.
Follow the exploits of Luke, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and fan favourites C-3PO and R2-D2 as the Rebel Alliance’s struggle against the power of the Galactic Empire really starts to get going!
With writer Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Scalped, Thor) handling the script, and John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Uncanny Avengers) providing the artwork, there’s a whole number of reasons to get excited about this launch.
Oh, and did we mention that this is the coming home party of STAR WARS at Marvel?
Don’t miss out on the biggest comic book launch of 2015!

Yes, folks the DOCTOR WHO comics from Titan have beewn going down a storm here at Frog Bros comics and Books!
This week sees the release of one of the most hotly anticipated by the Whovians…
DOCTOR WHO 12TH #1 REG ZHANG
With Peter Capaldi really settling into the role on the old goggle box, it's time for the character to make a big old splash in the funny books!
Award winning writer Robbie Morrison and New York times-bestselling artist Dave Taylor will be at the helm of the TARDIS console taking the Doctor to his most challenging destination yet!
We're being promised shocks, surprises, and timestream-shaking revelations…
So what you waiting for folks? Get in touch to get DOCTOR WHO 12TH #1 REG ZHANG added to your pull list...
Monday, 6 October 2014
Okay, so at the time of writing this it has been exactly 33 days since the last issue of ORIGINAL SIN hit the Frog shelves, that is around 792 hours that we have been without a Marvel Event book...
Jeez guys, how have we managed to get through those last 33 days without the promise of a Universe shattering event that will change everything and let nothing ever be the same ever again?!?!?!?!...
I don't know either, but the good news is we don't have to wait too much longer... AVENGERS AND X-MEN AXIS #1 (OF 9) is here!!!
Yes the 2 super teams who butted heads over the Phoenix Force so spectacularly in AVENGERS VS X-MEN, the event from 4 events ago...
Confused? Well comics can be like that, but fear not dear reader for we have your back, you can catch up on exactly what AVENGERS AND X-MEN AXIS #1 (OF 9) has in store for you through a 3 minute YOUTUBE video here...
And although we may all be feeling the effects of too many events, I recon we might just be on to a real winner with this one, creative teams don't come too much better than this nine-issue event written by Rick Remender with the art of Jim Cheung, Terry Dodson, Adam Kubert and Leinil Yu!
And remember it's going to change everything!!!

Yes, the guy who's made more comebacks than the 49ers is at it again... We could not be happier!!!
Y'see Bucky as a character is a real frog favourite, so we cannot wait for BUCKY BARNES WINTER SOLDIER #1!
Especially after ORIGINAL SIN, the book that basically acted as a job interview for Bucky to become the Space Ranger we're going to see in his latest role.
Let's not forget ORIGINAL SIN saw him chopping off the head of the would be job interviewer, Nick Fury!
So do we think a character that probably works best in quite grounded espionage stories can carry a book that's going to take us throughout the universe?
Yes we do! C'mon we're in very safe hands here with Ales Kot (SECRET AVENGERS/ ZERO) writing and Marco Rudy, who's art blew us away on MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN and the recent, wonderfully trippy NEW AVENGERS ANNUAL.
Marvel really do seem to have thought this team through, Kot can handle the espionage and piece building needed to make this kind of book fly and Rudy's art will be amazing at introducing us to new galaxies!
Good old Bucky will do the rest!

So MULTIVERSITY #1 was all kinds of AWESOME, nuts and pretty much everything we wanted it to be…
Which means Mr Morrison has a wee bit of a task on his hands with issue #2, or has he found a clever way around it by issueing the 2nd chapter of his personal 'last word on super hero comics' as a stand alone one-shot?
But it's a stand alone one-shot that is the second chapter to MULTIVERSITY... Confused? Yep so are we and that's without even reading the book!
So why are we so excited? It's the 2nd part to MULTIVERSITY, c'mon how could we not be?
MULTIVERSITY THE SOCIETY OF SUPER-HEROES #1 promises us a trip to Earth-20 starring a Society of Super Heroes unlike anything you've seen before!
Pulp Super Hero action with a post-modern twist and Earth-40 counterparts, yes folks Grant Morrison's epic of 52 Earths continues.
And looks like it's going to get even more nuts!!!
At this point we cannot guarantee more Captain Carrot in this book…

Yes, usually comics that come from a movie franchise aren't the ones that get us all excited but this one is different... This one is PROMETHEUS!Oh yes folks a direct continuation of the great Ridley Scott's great PROMETHEUS is hitting the frog shelves in PROMETHEUS FIRE AND STONE #1
So why are we so excited about this book?
Apart from it continuing one of THE greatest sci-fi ongoing stories of all time?Well it's also the first issue in a blockbuster crossover event!
And it's from Eisner Award-nominated creative team of Paul Tobin and artist Juan Ferreyra who you may recall from their work on the chillingly wonderful COLDER!
And that Frog friends is more than enough for us!
We're willing to bet this is going to be a treat for fans of the franchise and for the newbies... Hell for anyone who likes a good yarn done properly!

So you think you're a Superhero huh? Got the cape?
Got the spandex?
Pants on over your trousers?
Got your powers?
Ah, well now y'see the thing is...
Not to worry, you're not alone... Just head on down to David “Shreds” Shrejic support group where you'll find other like-minded individuals…
Some of whom may well possess extraordinary abilities, or do they?
Shreds doesn't really seem to think so, but then if he did not only would he be a disgraced psychologist, he'd also be a failed support group runner... And we can't have that!
SUNDOWNERS #1 writen by Tim Sealey, Art by Jim Terry

You are not alone...

Oh yes folks the wait is finally over and this Wednesday we have the release of one of the most eagerly anticipated (Here at Frog Towers anyway) books of the year…
The mad genius that is Grant Morrison brings us MULTIVERSITY #1!
A book so big it can't be contained to one universe, oh no this one is going to feature all 52 of DC's realities!!!
Yes folks get excited, this book has been coming for years and it's finally almost upon us!
On arts, well it reads like a who's who of comic creation featuring Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, Ben Oliver, Frank Quitely and Cameron Stewart, a story this HUGE is too big for just one artist!
Comprising six complete adventures – each set in a different parallel universe – plus a two-part framing story and a comprehensive guidebook to the many worlds of the Multiverse, THE MULTIVERSITY is going to be odd, wierd and downright AWESOME!!!
Bring it on Mr Morrison, we're ready for you!!!…

No no dear reader, not a trip down to Frog Bros Comics and Books, well obviously it does apply to us too!!!
But no, in this case we're talking about HOWTOONS REIGNITION #1.
A new book from the publisher that's not afraid to push boundaries and try new things IMAGE.
Written by Fred Van Lente and with art by Tom Fowler HOWTOONS REIGNITION #1 comes spinning out of and expanding the great work done in the fabulous web series for teaching kids (and us adults!) through experiments in one-page comics.
In this series Tuck and Celine, having ridden out the apocalypse by being placed in suspended annimation by Mom and Dad, wake to find themselves in a vastly changed world.
Using their Howtoons to survive the kids embark on a trip across this new brave and dangerous world to find their parents.
There really aren't enough ALL - AGES comics around, hopefully HOWTOONS REIGNITION #1can fill this gaping void, but there's only one way to find out…
Give us a shout to give it a try!

Not to mention one of the most controversial – who cares that consenting adults had sex by the way!!
One of the main guys at Marvel with his runs on Captain America, the awesome Uncanny Avengers and let’s not forget the simply amazing Uncanny X-Force this guy knows how to write amazing comics.
Not loving Marvel?
OK... Maybe you’ve had a chance to pick up Black Science? It’s easily my favourite indie comic of the last year which spins an action fuelled sci-fi adventure with more than a few friendly winks cast the way of classic TV series Lost in Space.
Low promises to carry on in a similar vein with frequent collaborator Greg Tocchini on art and a story set in the distant future, after humanity has relocated to radiation-shielded cities below the sea and the surface of the planet has become a scorched uninhabitable wasteland, this is bound to be a sure fire hit... No pun intended!
What are you waiting for?
Get in touch to buy the book!!!

BATMAN NEEDS A ROBIN... Personally I'm not 100% sure that statement is correct, but BATMAN AND ROBIN does need a Robin.
The BATMAN AND ROBIN title has been one of this Frog's favourites from the NEW52 and although it's still been really good since the death of Damian the BATMAN AND... With a rolling roster of team-ups from TWO FACE, NIGHTWING and even FRANKENSTEIN has for me run it's course.
So how excited am I that ROBIN RISES OMEGA #1 is coming out this week?... VERY!!!
Peter J. Tomasi the writer who's been building this for over 2 years now is being very cagey as to whether it's Damian Wayne stepping back into the BATMAN's sidekick roll or someone else.
All we do know is that on the 23rd of July BATMAN AND ROBIN #33 hits the Frog shelves, that's Batman AND ROBIN.
Who the Boy (or Girl) WONDER will be is anyone's guess but this oversized one-shot ROBIN RISES OMEGA #1 leads straight into it and so will surely give us a clue or two…

Accrobat, ROBIN, NIGHTWING, Teen Titan, Outsider... Even BATMAN! This kid has done it all!
So what's next for Dick Grayson? Well dear reader, after the NIGHTWING un-masking escapades of those pesky Crime Syndicate-ers BATMAN's first Robin and DC's original renaissance man has got to re-invent himself all over again!
This week is all about that new incarnation as GRAYSON #1 hits the Frog shelves.
Yep the former Side-Kick Sensation again gets his own book, but this time rather than being a masked hero, he's a Super Spy, Agent 37... Or just Grayson...
Written by TIM SEELEY with Art by MIKEL JANIN, it's looking like both ourselves and Dick are in safe hands.
To be honest the NEW52 NIGHTWING had not really hit the hights that the character had enjoyed in the pre-52 stuff so this title really could be the one that does ol' Grayson justice as one of DC's best characters... Only one way to find out!
Holler to get your copy of issue #1 reserved!!!

So the summer starts here and we get our first look at the character we're willing to bet is going to be the HIT of the summer, everyone's favourite GUARDIAN OF THE GALAXY in his own book, ROCKET RACCOON #1 ANMN hitting the Frog shelves Wednesday!
The noises coming out from the movie makers are that ROCKET kinda steels the show and here you can get the jump on getting to know the character!
So who is Rocket, well if you ask him it probably goes something like 'formidable-and-expert-Guardian of the Galaxy who lives a high-flying life of adventure and heroism… Notice no mention of Raccoon? Rocket is NOT a raccoon, okay?
Taking on the job of bringing this guy to life in the funny pages is superstar comic creator and Marvel variant cover God Skottie Young... Doing it all writing, art, writing the theme tune, singing the theme tune!
And who better to take on the lil' guy with a big chip on his shoulder and even bigger guns?!
So come on folks get your orders in quick, it's sure to be a hit and a darn good read as Rocket tears through the Galaxy... Woe betide anyone who calls him Racc... BLAM!

Okay so he's an AVENGER and MARVEL mainstay but... When was the last time we had a really enjoyable HULK book?
For me it was back when Jason Aaron split the Big Green Man from Banner, even the great Mark Waid hasn't been able to stop the rot.
But the Frog Bros recon that's all about to change this week with the release of SAVAGE HULK #1.
Why's that then, you all ask?
Well folks the guy penning this new HULK series is none other than Alan Davis, probably best known for his work on Marvel's X-MEN titles.
And guess who he's pitting the Green Goliath against?
Yep, you got it, THE X-MEN!!!
Moving forward this title's going to be big names, superstars and break-out talent telling their unique stories within continuity... And all about HULK!!!
Using elements of the past and perhaps even glimpses of the future. It all comes back to the current Hulk mythos while letting the talent cut loose with that Hulk story they’ve been dying to tell!
