New Comics Release for 7/11/18

Another big week of new releases this week with a couple of tentpole titles from the big 2! Also, word is there’s a secret new image book by Robert Kirkman that will be out tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled for more info about that! Lets get to it!

From Boom! this week, a new digital first comic makes it print debut with Ruinworld #1 (of 5). Intrepid adventurers Pogo and Rex are on a quest for fame and fortune. Their discovery of a special map leads them on an epic journey through dangers, demons and old enemies. Just one problem-they’ve already lost the map. An all-ages comic about fun, friendship and screaming in the face of danger, perfect for fans of Adventure Time and Adventure Zone.

From Dark Horse this week, the creator of Halt and Catch Fire debuts a new series on the Berger Books imprint called She Could Fly #1. In Chicago, an unknown woman appears flying at speeds of 120 miles per hour and at heights reaching 2,000 feet. Then she suddenly dies in a fiery explosion mid-air. No one knows who she was, how she flew, or why. Luna, a disturbed 15-year-old girl becomes obsessed with learning everything about her while rumors and conspiracy theories roil. Will cracking the secrets of the Flying Woman’s inner life lead to the liberation from her own troubled mind?

From DC this week, Big Blue is back in a new ongoing series with Brian Michael Bendis at the helm! Superman #1 comes out this week and is drawn by Ivan Reis. The fallout from the Man of Steel miniseries has Clark Kent looking at the world through new eyes… with new ideas about what Superman could and should do for the city of Metropolis and the planet Earth. His first job? Getting the planet back out of the Phantom Zone!

Also from DC this week Flash #50 hits the racks and is the Finale of Flash War! Zoom adapts two new Speed Force powers into his arsenal against both Barry Allen and Wally West. What are these strange new powers? What can they do? And how will this haunt the Scarlet Speedster long after “Flash War” is over? It’s the power of two Flashes pitted against the seemingly unstoppable Hunter Zolomon!

Lastly from DC this week, Titans #23 hits shelves. Can anything stop the Metagene pandemic unleashed through the events of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE? The all-new Titans are on the case. Roll call: Nightwing, Donna Troy, Raven, Steel, Beast Boy and Miss Martian! But can even their combined might stand against new super-powered weapons of mass destruction birthed by the Metagenes? And (SPOILERS) how will the events of TEEN TITANS #20 come back to haunt the Titans? New enemies are out for blood in part one of “The Spark.”

From IDW this week Alan Moore returns to the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen! The Tempest #1 comes out this week! After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill conclude both their legendary League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their equally legendary comic-book careers with the series’ spectacular fourth and final volume, “The Tempest.” This six-issue miniseries is a celebration of everything comics were, are and could be. Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha’s lost African city of Kor and the domed citadel of ‘We’ on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe.

From Image this week, the artist from Chew debuts his new ongoing series! Rob Guillory writes and draws Farmhand, a dark new comedy about science gone sinister and agriculture gone apocalyptic! Jedidiah Jenkins is a farmer-but his cash crop isn’t corn or soy. Jed grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. Lose a finger? Need a new liver? He’s got you covered. Unfortunately, strange produce isn’t the only thing Jed’s got buried. Deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm, something dark has taken root, and it’s beginning to bloom.

Also from Image this week, Outpost Zero #1 hits racks. Welcome to Outpost Zero, the smallest town in the universe. The people there work the land, go to the fights every Friday night, and tuck their children into bed-but the Outpost is no place for dreams or aspirations. To survive is ambitious enough. As Alea and her friends graduate to adulthood on a frozen world never meant to support human life, something stirs. Something sees…

From Marvel this week, web head is back and in a brand new series with a brand new creative team! Amazing Spider Man #1 hits shelves this week! An alien invasion hits New York City and the only one who can stop it is…Spider-Man?! But that’s far from all you’ll find here – a revelation from the past puts Peter Parker’s job, relationships, and whole life in jeopardy! And if even that’s not enough, you’ll see a new roommate, new love interests – and a new villain! Spider-Man goes back to basics courtesy of Nick Spencer (SECRET EMPIRE, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN) and the Marvel debut of RYAN OTTLEY (Invincible)!

Lastly from Marvel this week, X-23 #1 makes its debut! Cloned from a warrior, raised as a killer, Laura Kinney has gone through hell and come out the other side a hero. After a stint as the All-New Wolverine, she returns to her roots as X-23 to make sure no one ever has to go through the horrors she did. With her sister Gabby and their pet Jonathan in tow, X-23 forges her own destiny in this new series by Mariko Tamaki (HULK, HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: CLAWS OF A KILLER) and Juann Cabal (ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, ELEKTRA).

From AfterShock this week Relay #1 makes it debut! A perfect future of intergalactic travel and community. Every newly discovered planet is unified culturally through a monolithic structure known as the Galactic Relay. Although the towering monument is meant to inspire conformity of ideas, technology, and progress – many resent the foreign structure. Jad Carter, a Relay employee, must keep the peace and act as an emissary to new civilizations. But when he finds the Relay’s mythological creator, Hank Donaldson, his idea of reality and the universe shatters.

Crisis on Earth X

Hello everyone!! I’m 100% invested in the DC “Arrowverse.” It has it’s up’s and it’s down, just like any other show, and a lot of people give it shit for being more melodramatic than they would like, but overall, THIS is the universe that has held my interest on the DC side of things. The Justice League movie just came out, and it stands to be the least profitable movie, as part of the DCEU, behind Man of Steel! THIS Crisis on Earth X crossover gives me way more pleasure than what’s happening on the big screens for DC right now, with Wonder Woman being the exception.
Let’s get to it! Keep in mind I’m new to this reviewing business, and this is more thought, than review.

So why, other than being “friends” did all of these superheroes get together? Well this years crossover did a MUCH better job of getting this established than last years. Last year, it’s episode that was a part of the crossover, was more in line with whatever show it was attached to. The Arrow episode focused more on that show, Flash did the same, and Supergirl was barely a part of the whole event. This years crossover felt WAY more like a full on crossover, than last year, and it started with this awesome RSVP montage, which brings everyone together:

Part 1 (of 2 tonight, 4 overall) dealt mostly with the wedding of Barry and Iris. It dealt with all of the superheroes gathering, getting manicures, pedicures, and fitted for their tuxedos. We also get a little bit of that melodrama that I spoke about earlier. Alex is dealing with her recent breakup with Maggie & her subsequent one night stand with Sarah, Supergirl is dealing with the return of Mon-El who is married now, Oliver and Felicity are dealing with wanting and not wanting to get married, Barry & Iris want to get married, and Firestorm does and doesn’t want to be separated.
Pretty standard stuff, leading up to the ceremony. The only odd thing, was an overly happy caterer, who may or may not come from the future, and may or may not be the daughter of the Wests. Pretty interesting theories about that, but it seemed a little over the top to just be an Easter egg, or something subtle for a different time. I think this will pay off before the end of the crossover.

This of course leads to Nazi’s kicking down the doors of the chapel:

After the words “I hate Nazi’s” are uttered, all hell breaks loose, and we jump into the first major fight sequence. A lot of back and forth between the major heroes and what look to be like the major villains this year. Just as it looks like Kara is about to go down, she catches Overgirl by surprise, and the villains retreat. This episode ends with the heroes having the upper hand, and capturing Earth X’s version of Prometheus, who is revealed to be their earth’s, Tommy Merlyn. PART 2 starts off with his interrogation, and his subsequent suicide. I do feel like they missed the boat on that one a little bit more, and figured Colin Donnell would be sticking around a little bit longer to torture good Oliver, but that didn’t happen.
The second episode dealt a lot more with who the villains were, and was built around why they are here on Earth 1. After the setup, there needs to be villain buildup, and this part of the crossover did that just fine. Turns out, the main villains of this years crossover, are doppelgangers to Supergirl and Oliver Queen, Overgirl & the Dark Archer, respectively. The third piece to this villain puzzle is Eobard Thawne, supposedly the one from Earth 1.
This episode is actually a little more simple than the last. Team Arrow arrives, but are easily dispatched by the Dark Archer. The main heroes “find” where Overgirl’s hideout is, but they fall into a trap, and proceed to get their asses kicked. Villains gain the upper hand, and setup the “why” they are here on Earth X. The overall arch of the story of course, is that they want to dominate Earth 1. They want to make sure that the Nazi flag is hung on every earth, and this happens to be the next stop. This is what Overgirl and Thawne want. The biggest reason that the Dark Archer is there, is a little more subtle. Apparently Overgirl is dying, and they need Kara’s heart, in order to save her life. Seems like the Dark Archer wants this, more than the other, which sets up possible infighting between our villains.
The heroes are captured, and are sent to a concentration camp, on Earth X. That is where the 2 episodes for tonight will kickoff!!

I absolutely loved the first half of this years crossover. It did a spectacular job of telling the story in both episodes. Instead of focusing on the team from that episode, it focused on the story itself, which came off much stronger than last year.
There are 2 things that I still don’t understand, or annoy me.

  1. Cisco get’s knocked out at the perfect time. He is the expert at inter-dimensional travel, and he is the only hero that goes down. Alive, but not at all able to help with the mission. I don’t like when a character is taken out, simply because that makes the heroes stronger if the character is able to help. Why not come up with a different problem, instead of just knocking out Cisco. Such a weird thing to employ
  2. I have seen Thawne dye, a couple of times now. If there is anything bad to say about the Arrowverse, it’s that they rely way to much on characters we’ve already seen, and sometimes killed. Damien Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, Thawne, etc. It’s time to stop relying on villains we’ve seen before, and start creating new ones. THIS is the reason that the current season of The Flash is working, because The Thinker is different. Anyway, back to Thawne. They did a shit job of explaining how the hell he is even alive, let alone siding with Overgirl and the Dark Archer. I’ve seen him die twice now. Once on The Flash, and once in Legends of Tomorrow. This leads to weak villains, and the thought that nobody will ever die.

Other than those two things, for me, as I’m sure there are plenty of people who can pick apart the acting, and the styles, blah blah blah. But, other than those two things, I’m happy. It felt more like a crossover, and it’s exactly what I want out of super hero characters. It was fun, comic “booky,” action packed, and entertaining. I’m looking forward to the 2 episode finale tonight!!

New Comics Release for 5/17/17

May keeps on rolling by and brings us to
another glorious new comic book day! Lots of stuff going on this week, as it is
a pretty heavy week, so lets jump right on in!
From DC this week, Flash #22 finally ships
brining forth the conclusion to the Button story once and for all….or does
it? Also hitting racks this week is
Batman #23 written by Tom King with art and cover by Mitch Gerads with a story
arc called “The Brave and the Mold” in which Swamp Thing comes to Gotham!

From Image this week Jim Mahfood debuts his
first new creator-owned work in years with the glorious return of Grrl Scouts!
Join Gwen, Daphne, and Rita as they reunite for a pulse pounding psychedillic
adventure through the streets of Freak City. This first issue is stuffed to the
gills with an action packed story, bouns art, soundtrack, sketchbook and behind
the scenes info!

From Marvel this week, big stuff hitting
shelves. Secret Empire #2 for starters! In addition, we see two new series
kicking off. Generation X #1 hits stands written by Christina Strain with Art
by Amilcar Pinna. The Xavier
Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach has opened its doors and is ready
to foster the next generation of heroes and diplomats! But this time around,
the X-Men recognize an unfortunate truth: not all mutants are created equal.
Some mutants are not made to fight Sentinels or serve as ambassadors on behalf
of their kind. Some mutants will just be lucky to survive another day in a
world that hates and fears them. And who better to mentor mutantkind’s lovable
losers than perpetual sidekick Jubilee? But will Jubilee and GENERATION X
survive the experience?? Luke Cage #1 also hits stands written by David Walker
with art by Nelson Blake. Dr. Noah Burstein, the man who made Luke Cage into
the unbreakable hero he is today, is dead. When Luke goes down to New Orleans
for the funeral, he finds The Big Easy to be pretty &$#% difficult.
Mysterious billionaires, a woman with a secret, amped-up gangs and a shadowy
figure all lead Luke to the conclusion that there’s more to his father-figure’s
death than meets the eye. He’s looking for answers, and it’s a bad day for
anyone in his way!
