The Avenger and Green Hornet ’66 Meets The Spirit series all kicking off this Wednesday as well as a new issue of James Bond and KISS/Vampirella. We’ve got exclusive extended previews of all five of those issues for you to peruse on this 4th of July holiday…or if you’re outside of the United States, Tuesday.

Ash vs Army of Darkness #1
Writers: Chad Bowers, Chris Sims | Artist: Mauro Vargas | Covers: Tyler Kirkham (a), Reilly Brown (b), Mauro Vargas (c), Pasquale Qualano (d)

“The name is Ash, but you can call me Mr. Williams!” Ash found out the hard way that major corporations frown upon the dismemberment of Deadites on company property. Go figure! But a change in career won’t stop him from being The Chosen One! Writers Chad Bowers & Chris Sims and artist Mauro Vargas put Ash Williams exactly where we need him…in the public school system!

Justice, Inc. The Avenger: Faces Of Justice #1
Writers: Kyle Higgins, Joe Gentile | Artist: Alexandre Shibao | Covers: Tom Mandrake (a), Alexandre Shibao (b)

No man is above the law! When the FBI discovers evidence that incriminates Richard Benson in a brutal murder, the Avenger finds himself arrested and subjected to an intense investigation by the Bureau’s best agents! Now the Justice, Inc. team must spring into action to save their leader, and discover if there’s a sinister plot at play…or could the Avenger actually be guilty of such a heinous crime?

The Green Hornet ’66 Meets The Spirit #1
Writer: Fred Van Lente | Artist: Bob Q | Covers: Mike Allred & Laura Allred (a), Ty Templeton (b), Javier Pulido (c)

Another challenge for THE GREEN HORNET, his aide KATO, and their rolling arsenal, THE BLACK BEAUTY! On police records a wanted criminal, THE GREEN HORNET is really Britt Reid, owner/publisher of The Daily Sentinel. Reid and Kato have traveled to Central City to participate in the futuristic World’s Fair, to get the skinny on the “Newspaper of Tomorrow,” a device capable of predicting headlines before events happen! But isn’t that a dangerous power for the press to wield…and say, who’s that blue-suited skulker in the shadows?

Green Hornet

James Bond 2017 #5
Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Rapha Lobosco | Covers: Dominic Reardon (a), Jason Masters (b), Patrick Zircher (c)

BLACK BOX PART 5: “The Suicide Forest” In the so-called “Suicide Forest” of Japan, near the base of Mt. Fuji, James Bond finds himself hunted by No Name, the nightmarish assassin. After narrowly escaping, 007 and Selah Sax find themselves on board a bullet train bound for the headquarters of Saga Genji — in a race against Felix Leiter and the Americans for the “black box” of information that could compromise their nations.

KISS/Vampirella #2
Writer: Chris Sebela | Artist: Annapaola Martello | Covers: Juan Doe (a), Carli Ihde (b), Roberto Castro (c), Cosplay Photo Variant (d)

Rock ’n’ roll isn’t for the faint of heart. Jet-lagged, on the verge of recording a new album and stuck in the strange heart of Los Angeles, KISS are now up against an army of mysterious strangers who’ve kidnapped their old friend. Vampirella has her own problems stuck in a crime scene full of satanists with swords. Dragging her new roadie with her on a ride packed with demons and explosions big enough to throw Vampi and her band into a collision course with KISS.
