In case you missed it, Chris Condon is making his AfterShock debut with “Hell is a Squared Circle,” “Conan the Barbarian” found a new home at Titan Comics, and Image/Skybound unveiled their new horror series “Dark Ride.” We also had an exclusive preview of August’s “Mezo: Battle At Coban Rock” #4, and interviewed “Castle Full of Blackbirds” writer Angela Slatter.

– IDW’s latest “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” miniseries will harken back to the classic ’80s/90s cartoon. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Saturday Morning Adventures” will be written by Erik Burnham with art from Tim Lattie, and run for four issues starting this September. In contrast to IDW’s “Last Ronin” series, “Saturday Morning Adventures” will feature plots such as the turtles getting trapped in a VR simulator, and one of Krang’s stone soldiers pursuing hair metal fame.

– ComiXology Original “Delver” is set to return Tuesday, June 28. C. Spike Trotman, who co-created the series with co-writer M.K. Reed, will write “Delver Season Two” solo. Clive Hawken will handle art, with Maarta Laiho and Ed Dukeshire contributing colors and letters respectively. Kel McDonald edits. Dark Horse will publish a print version next year. The new season will see heroes Merit and Clem back home in Oddgoat, where they deal with an burgeoning underground monster black market, and paperwork on the surface.

– Grant Morrison shared an unpublished excerpt from their book Supergods with the Nerdist. In an interview with the website, the “All-Star Superman” and “Invisibles” scribe discusses how much had to be cut from the comic book history text, stating the original draft was 200,000 words, double what the final total ended up being. The exclusive except draws comparisons between the comic medium and the Big Bang, and discusses the significance of the number four (such as the four elements and four color printing method). Morrison also goes on to discuss their Substack newsletter, “Xanaduum.”

– BOOM! Studios is rereleasing the first six issues of “Once & Future” with new covers from “Dune: The Graphic Novel” artist Raúl Allén. The covers will be part of BOOM!’s “Once & Future #1-6 Grail Pack,” reprinting the original six issues of the Eisner-nominated series. The series is written by New York Times-bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (“The Wicked + The Divine,” “Star Wars”) and drawn by Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Klaus”). Tamra Bonvillain (“Captain Marvel”) handles colors and Ed Dukeshire (“The Red Mother”) provides letters. The “Grail Pack” will be available on August 10, 2022 in comic shops, from BOOM!’s website, and all major digital providers.

– Disney released the trailer for their LEGO Star Wars special, LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation. The special drops August 5 of this year, exclusively on Disney+. In addition to the returning cast members from previous specials, it features the voice talents of Yvette Nicole Brown, Kelly Marie Tran, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and “Weird Al” Yankovic, who performs his song “Scarif Beach Party.”

– In more trailer news, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have released a character trailer for Jane Foster, aka the Mighty Thor, who joins the cast of Marvel’s Avengers as a playable character on June 28. The motion comic-style trailer, titled “Out of Time,” establishes Foster’s origins and explains how she joins the universe of the game. Takeshi Miyazawa provides art for the trailer, which is narrated by Zehra Fazal (Young Justice: Outsiders) as Foster.

– Finally, Paul Downs Colaizzo (Brittany Runs a Marathon) is set to direct Paramount’s upcoming “Harbinger” adaptation, based on the Valiant comic of the same name. Wes Ball was originally attached to the project, but had to step down to focus on the next Planet of the Apes feature.
