    Justice League comics at TFAW.com

    Justice League #52
    By: Dan Jurgens, Paul Pelletier, Tony Kordos

    The Darkseid War rocked the Justice League. Putting each of them through trials which found fresh perspectives, and illuminated some things that they did not realize were in the shadows. In recent history, we saw Superman save the world from a corrupted energy version of himself by ultimately sacrificing himself for the survival of DC’s Earth.

    Superman’s willingness to put the world before himself is one of his most enduring character elements and even Lex Luthor has to recognize that. In true Lex fashion, he pays what form of respect that he has for our hero by adopting the House of El’s shield on his redesigned battle armor. Setting out on a mission to acquire the fallen Superman’s cape to wear with it, so that he can become the new savior of Metropolis. Lex Luthor experiences his own Rebirth, and though the members of the Justice League are unsure of where Lex’s rebirth will lead, so far they aren’t out to stop him. After all, there is another, true Superman which he is unaware of. Chalk up another victory to DC’s Rebirth line for taking their comics to great new frontiers! I’m excited to see where we’re going.

    Bitch Planet comics at TFAW.com

    Bitch Planet #8
    By: Kelly Sue DeConnick, Valentine De Landro

    Bitch Planet #8 hits all the notes you’d expect from the DeConnick—De Landro team. The art is on point, and the characters are every bit as endearing as ever.

    The story of Meiko’s father takes a surprising turn which manages to escalate Kamau’s search for her sister. Unbeknownst to them, we—the readers—get a shocking and (in true DeConnick fashion) uncomfortable glimpse into what Kamau is currently up to.

    The best elements of De Landro’s art are on display in this issue. At a glance, faces and backgrounds appear simplified and stripped down, but digging deeper, he reveals details that have astonishing implications for the overall story implications for the overall story. DeConnick’s writing isn’t different in that regard. Many of the conversations are designed for the astute reader to pick up on references to previous issues. On the flipside, new ideas are seeded (such as a strange cult-like meeting in the basement of a bar) as we see more and more of the horrifying world of Bitch Planet. [Tim S. At TFAW.com]

    Deadpool vs Gambit comics at TFAW.com

    Deadpool vs Gambit #1
    By: Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Danilo Beyruth, Kevin Wada

    From the writers who brought you Thunderbolts and one of the artists behind Gwenpool, comes the all-new five issue mini-series, Deadpool V Gambit: The V is for VS.

    I have always been keen on the writers who take on Deadpool, and Ben Acker and Ben Blacker definitely know what they are doing with the Merc with a Mouth. If you don’t know much about Gambit, that’s okay! This issue gives you a good feel of what he’s like and what powers he possesses.

    Now on to the fight! We love seeing this Mercenary fight with anyone that will bring him the big bucks! However, this issue will surprise you as it’s not your traditional VS (or is it V now?) mini-series. Gambit the Cajun magician and Deadpool the Merc who needs money, bring you this amazing, hilarious issue. I am actually really intrigued where this issue is going… I give it five tacos and five chimichangas! [Darcey M. at Universal Citywalk]

    Green Arrow #1
    By: Ben Percy, Otto Schmidt, Juan Ferreyra

    Seattle has a problem. Underground Men are capturing the homeless and selling them off to unseen bidders in some dark auction underneath the city. In Green Arrow Rebirth #1 Oliver met Black Canary again to team up and stop these Underground Men.

    This issue starts it off well, continuing the attempt to end the trafficking, and returns Oliver Queen to us while outlining just what kind of hero he is, both in and out of the hooded green leather.

    The art has a contemporary and fun new vision that solidifies the story that is building. This is a new-reader friendly issue, though it would begin smoother after reading Green Arrow Rebirth #1. The Emerald Archer has meant a lot to me for many years. Championing the people as a liberal hero with social justice on his mind, while struggling to evolve his own understanding and view of the world. This is on track to bring us a Green Arrow on par with the likes of Mike Grell’s work on the character. I am very excited to be on board for this book, and can safely recommend to any fans of the tv show who don’t know where to start with the comics! [Casey D. at TFAW.com]

    Civil War II: X-Men #1
    By: Cullen Bunn, Andrea Broccardo, David Yardin

    As much as I loved X-crossovers like Inferno and Fall of the Mutants back in the day, more recent capital-E Events (Secret Wars aside) have left me cold – tangential tie-ins doubly so. So – the fact that Civil War II: X-Men #1 not only holds up as an unforced and relevant facet of the Avengers’ more central conflict, but feels like the legitimate next chapter in the plot of both Storm’s and Magneto’s teams of X-Men? That was a surprise, and a pleasant one.

    Cullen Bunn earned quite a bit of goodwill among X-fans with his recently-ended run on Magneto’s solo series, and his ability to bring nuance to potentially over-the-top characters helps him juggle a large cast without any characters getting too lost in the background. In particular, Nightcrawler and Psylocke’s reunion is wistfully heartwarming, and Sabretooth and Old Man Logan’s meeting realistically brings out the worst in them, temporarily erasing the progress each has made in recent months in a way that feels earned.

    Andrea Broccardo’s art is a good hybrid of the styles of the books each team of X-Men comes from: more realistic than Humberto Ramos’s and more expressive than Greg Land’s. While the occasional face looks a bit off, he successfully contrasts the colorful heroism of Storm’s team with the bleak intimidation of Magneto’s. Jesus Aburtov’s colors assist nicely, making each team’s palette distinct without either seeming out of place.

    What’s most important, though, is that this first issue successfully sells the series’ premise: both Storm and Magneto have valid points about how mutants should handle the Inhumans’ powerful new precog Ulysses, and their conflict seems tragically believable. We’ll see if Bunn and Broccardo can keep it up as the mutants’ harsh words inevitably turn to blows, but for now, I’m excited to see what happens next. [Miles S. at TFAW.com]

    Dark Knight A True Batman Story HC Graphic Novel at TFAW.com

    Dark Knight A True Batman Story
    By: Paul Dini, Eduardo Risso

    A uniquely personal story, Paul Dini’s Dark Knight: A True Batman Story will captivate you, stir up fear and anger, and ultimately give you a new perspective on how fictional superheroes can have real-life effects on people’s lives. In this autobiographical story, Dini takes us into the deep into the darkness and details the events of a horrific physical attack and his subsequent healing process.

    Dini is very candid about the attack, and Eduardo Risso’s (100 Bullets, Dark Knight III: The Master Race) art takes us to places we’ve never been in a Batman graphic novel. While reading the book, you are relegated to being a witness of the vicious crime (another testament to the pairing of Dini’s writing talents and Risso’s compelling art), and the hard road of recovery that follows. I’ve never felt more connected to a person I’ve never met. This book is a triumph of the comics medium — expertly weaving in familiar characters and common themes in superhero comics to tell a very personal tale that you won’t be able to put down. [Josh C. at TFAW.com]

    Star Wars: Han Solo #1
    By: Marjorie M. Liu, Mark Brooks, Lee Bermejo

    Star Wars: Han Solo #1 brings readers into the eyes of our favorite smuggler who has now taken on a new challenge. Briefly following the events of the Battle of Yavin, Han finds himself once again helping out the Rebellion. This time as an undercover agent in the oldest and most dangerous race in the galaxy – The Dragon Void.

    I found the comic to move at an exciting speed and it leaves the reader wanting to know more about Solo’s current mission to gain secret information that could help defeat the Empire. A must read for fans of the series. [Travis S. at TFAW.com]

    Weird Detective comics at TFAW.com

    Weird Detective #1
    By: Fred Van Lente, Guiu Vilanova, Mauricio Wallace

    When I saw the words “Cthulhu Crime” on the one-sheet ad, I was hooked. I’m a sucker for supernatural crime comics, so this was a must read for me. I’m here to say Fred Van Lente and team not disappoint!

    Detective Sebastian Greene is someone who does their job just under the radar, until 2 months ago. Now, completely out of nowhere he is solving big cases with little evidence. Something is different, and him being “Canadian” has nothing to do with it!

    When I started to read this I thought, “Ok, another occult cop who is the only one who knows about the supernatural, I’m down”; but Fred Van Lente gave us a whole another spin on this theme. While making our protagonist the only one who can “sense” the supernatural, he gives us reason and backstory right off the bat on how Detective Greene does it. If you’ve read comics like Criminal Macabre, Hellblazer, or are just into Lovecraftian based stories, this is must read! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Lumberjanes Gotham Academy comics at TFAW.com

    Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #1
    By: Chynna Clugston Flores, Rosemary Valero-O’Connell, Mingjue Helen Chen

    Lumberjanes Gotham Academy brings together the two best trouble-making-teenage-teams in comics from Boom! Studios and DC comics. What’s better, it’s filled with puns, bright colors, and friendship.

    The first part of the issue gives us snapshots of each groups personality. Gotham Academy’s “Detective Club,” are investigating a missing teacher. Which leads them into the mysterious woods. Meanwhile, the Lumberjanes’ scout leader needs to find her own missing person: fellow Lumberjane Rosie. The Lumberjanes strong-arm their leader (in a scene involving a literal severed arm!) into giving them the call to gear up and find their friend.

    The teams are hardly hostile to each other, though we start to see how this miniseries can explore their differences. The super sleuthing GA crew is already having trouble adapting to the bombastic friendship and maximum energy of the Lumberjanes. They’ll need to overcome these differences if they’re going to stop the evil forces at work and save everyone! [Tim S. at TFAW.com]

    Prometheus comics at TFAW.com

    Prometheus: Life and Death #1
    By: Dan Abnett, Andrea Mutti, Rain Beredo, David Palumbo

    While this issue is the first of the series, it also serves as part five of the Life & Death crossover. This takes off where Predator: Life & Death #4 ended. Although Dan Abnett wrote it in a way that you could pick this issue up with no problems getting the full picture of this epic crossover.

    A post hostile encounter with Predators, the remaining USCM plan on leaving LV-797 (Tartarus) with leftover “Xenotech.” A large vessel that looks very familiar. Although things go south when something wakes up and changes the vessels course.

    Andrea Mutti has this really cool “retro” style tagged with Rain Berbedo’s colors in this issue. From page one it took me back to the 80’s Aliens & Predator stories.

    With little known about Xenomorphs, Predators or the Engineers, Prometheus: Life & Death serves as a catalyst to a new venture in the Alien/Predator universe. These “gods” are definitely scarier than what we’ve seen before. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Action Comics at TFAW.com

    Action Comics #957
    By: Dan Jurgens, Patrick Zircher, Mikel Janin

    Action Comics begins its Rebirth, returning to its legacy numbering, and putting it back on track to be the first superhero comic book to legitimately reach issue #1000! The thing I’m most excited about is that Dan Jurgens — the guy who brought us the original Death of Superman — is back directing the Big Blue Boyscout’s adventures.

    Prior to Rebirth, the New 52 Kal-El had sacrificed himself to save the world. With help from the Pre-Flashpoint Superman who returned to DC Universe. Wanting to keep his head down to take care of his wife and son on the farm in Kansas. This created an open position for a new protector of Metropolis — one which Lex Luthor set his sights on by emerging in his power armor, the iconic S shield and red cape emblazoned on it. Kal-El (Pre-Flashpoint) travels to Metropolis intending on confronting Lex and proving that he is the true Superman. All this, plus another exciting return!

    This issue gives our beloved Superman back to us. He’s in better form than we’ve seen across any media in years, and I could not recommend this issue more! An incredible point for jumping back on, coming in fresh, or revisiting a character who you’re only familiar with on screens. No matter who you are, this is the Superman book for you. [Casey D. at TFAW.com]

    Wackey Raceland comics at TFAW.com

    Wacky Raceland #1
    By: Ken Pontac, Leonardo Manco

    Earth lies in ruin, covered in an apocalyptic desert, radioactive lakes, flesh-hungry mutants, and nanotech dust storms. On this world, the Wacky Racers compete in a series of races put forth by a group called the Unseen and the voice of the announcer, who will do anything to keep them. Winning means a grand prize of a place in Utopia, the last bastion of humanity.

    Let’s be clear: this is not your grandparents’ Wacky Racers. They swear, fight, and have a blast doing it. Dick Dastardly still drives the Mean Machine with his now-cybernetic dog Muttley, and Penelope Pitstop is still the baddest woman to ever get behind the wheel. With her trusty car, Compact Pussycat. The main twist in this issue is that the omnipotent announcer has installed all the racers’ cars with an AI system that has all the memories of the racer. Making the cars apart of the race through their own interactions with each other. I truly enjoyed this first heart-pounding issue, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next race.

    Also in this first issue, you get a small backstory on Lazy Luke and Blubber Bear. I’ll give you fair warning — it’s downright crazy. This book continues the bold rebranding of the Hanna-Barbera comics, which include Future Quest and Scooby Apocalypse. [Steve M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    Civil War II #1
    By: Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez

    The long awaited Marvel event is here! Written beautifully by Brian Michael Bendis and exceptional art from David Marquez, Civil War II is off to a great start!

    Everyone fighting side by side as a team against some ungodly monster. As soon as the city is saved, Tony throws one of his famous “We saved the world, so lets drink!” parties. During this party, however, people start to ask ,”How did the Inhumans know exactly when that monster would appear in the city?” We are introduced to a new Inhuman named Ulysses. His new found powers are that he can see possible future events in the form of visions. This is what immediately divides the room. Captain Marvel quickly tries to recruit Ulysses saying that this could save the world from any danger. Iron Man disagrees: he believes the future is not something that should be messed with. This is the morality that causes tension between the two, and fuel is quickly added to the flame! At the end of the issue, you will be just as heartbroken and at the edge of your seat as I was. This just begs the real question though… whose side are you on? [Darcey M. at Universal Citywalk TFAW]

    Superman Rebirth comics at TFAW.com

    Superman Rebirth #1
    By: Peter J. Tomasi, Doug Mahnke, Jaime Mendoza

    Superman is dead. Long live Superman! After several years of trials and tribulations, the final arc of Superman’s New 52 story arc culminated in Clark making the ultimate sacrifice to save the people of Earth. The Pre-Flashpoint Superman had come through, and is wearing the solar suit he wore after his death at the hands of Doomsday, in ‘the Death of Superman’ and a beard (which I rather hoped that he would keep).

    Superman knows a thing or two about sacrifice, and this new Rebirth comes directly with the knowledge and respect of honoring that cost. The Superman of the New 52 is gone, but the Superman we knew before is back and ready to carry on in the tradition of arguably the greatest superhero alive.

    The Rebirth titles that I have read so far have me ready to dive deeply back in to the DC Universe, and this issue really sets the stage for our Superman’s return. The art and story returned to me the vision of this hero that I had when his death rocked the nation. This is certainly a title that I will be proud to continue, and my hope has be inspired once again by the Kryptonian I’ve known since childhood.

    Thank you, Superman. [Casey D. at TFAW.com]

    Spider-Women comics at TFAW.com

    Spider-Women: Omega #1
    By: Yasmine Putri

    A fun end to one of the better event books I’ve read. Spider-Women: Omega closes out a well-told adventure into an extra-sized issue, and while it didn’t do anything to greatly change the status quo of any of the characters involved, it did show why each of the main heroes are worth reading.

    Dennis Hopeless and Nico Leon are the main creative team on the last issue for the finale, and do a good job of juggling characters and giving them each a moment to shine. It’s a Spider-Women book, and none of them are pushed to the side here.

    If you are interested in this title don’t start here though, luckily there is a collected trade coming out in July and can be found here: Spider-Women TPB.

    If you are looking for an entertaining and fun comic you can’t do much better than this. [Kyle S. at TFAW.com]

    Green Lanterns Rebirth comics at TFAW.com

    Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1
    By: Geoff Johns, Sam Humphries, Ethan Van Scriver

    DC’s Green Lanterns Rebirth #1 reads like a checklist of proper ways to start a series. Ominous threat? Check. Compelling characters? Check. Intriguing premise? Check. Throw in some humor and Justice League cameos, then cover it in stellar artwork and you’ve got an awesome #1.

    Our story follows two rookie Green Lanterns: Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. While Simon puts out a “tough-guy” persona, internally he’s filled with doubts about his place in America (where he’s been falsely accused of being a terrorist). Jessica is struggling to find her own place as well. With social anxiety in one hand and a Green Lantern ring in the other. Suddenly, their rings register a threat and are whisked off to battle an alien invader.

    The dynamic between them is equal parts interesting and hilarious. As they try to one-up each other as a way of justifying their own position as Earth’s newest defender. It’s like watching two siblings argue over who deserves more desert. But they’ll need to work out their differences quickly. As our mysterious narrator says “The Prophecy said there was the Blackest Night. Then the Brightest Day. But now comes something else…” [Tim S. at TFAW.com]

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything #1
    By: Ben Bates, Nick Pitarra

    Ben Bates, Dustin Weaver and IDW Comics bring us the beginning of a story that will no doubt lead us through the ages with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in tow!!

    Bebop and Rocksteady stumble into a time traveling debacle, as our Turtle pals finding an old friend, Renet the Time Master! As the turtles begin to unfold a deeper mystery, Bebop & Rocksteady (the real heroes of this tale!) blunder on and reveal the likes of which these two (and me) did not see coming! The art by Sophie Campbell (TMNT, Jem & The Holograms, Wet Moon), Dustin Weaver and Ben Bates mirrors this kinetic romp through time. A raucous time shall be had by all! [Ethan S. at Portland TFAW]

  • Review: Spider-Man Deadpool #1

    Review Spider-Man Deadpool #1

    spider-man deadpool #1The last time we saw Spider-man in the same frame as Deadpool, Spidey was quitting The Avengers because of Deadpool’s involvement in the group. Not for lack of effort and desire on Deadpool’s part, this is the least likely superhero duo imaginable. While the two heroes generally want the same results, neither can understand what motivates the other, and neither approves of the other’s methods of achieving results.

    Spider-Man / Deadpool #1 story opens with Spider-Man and Deadpool hanging upside down, face to face, tied up by Dormammu in hell. We have to wait a whole three pages before DP starts working blue, cracking his first of many erection jokes in the story.

    Spider-Man spends the entire issue trying to balance his duties as CEO of Parker Industries and his desire to remain a costumed super hero. Deadpool is trying to recruit Spidey as a mercenary for his own business, Deadpool is the Greatest, Inc. If he can convince Spider-Man to come work for him, his obsession with becoming Spider-Man’s best friend has a chance at fulfillment and Deadpool might have a chance at growing a conscience.

    It is evident that Joe Kelly is very comfortable writing both Deadpool and Spider-Man, having written brilliant stories for both franchises. The punch lines and puns are delivered smoothly, never feeling forced. There are a couple of the breaking kayfabe moments we’ve come to expect from Deadpool, and while Spidey gets a few jokes and bad puns in, it’s interesting to see him play the straight man. The story is weighted slightly toward Deadpool as the star, but that makes sense due to the current popularity of the character.

    Ed McGuiness is able to show a surprising range of emotion through the posture and body language of two masked characters. The design of the Mindless Ones, Dormammu, BAMF and Hydro-Man all definitely have that “heel” look to them, but also an element of innocence, which is mirrored in the dual nature of a sociopath who is genuinely attempting to be a good person but doesn’t know how.

    Captain America: Steve Rogers #1
    By: Nick Spencer, Jesus Saiz

    Steve Rogers is back as Captain America! Throw the confetti and start the welcome back party! Since Kubik returned Steve’s super solider serum to him in the Avengers Stand Off Series, Cap jumps right back into action.

    With the agreement that there will be two Captain Americas now, Steve adopts his old 1940’s shield while Sam keeps the original. Jumping straight into this issue, we are confronted with the same song and dance the Captain has been dealing with since day one.

    Hydra is returning at full strength and they’re not holding back. Well, that’s just fine because Steve has the help of Jack Flag and Free Spirit. Things should be easy for him right? Nope!

    This issue plays with your emotions from the all-powerful speech Red Skull gives, to the touching back story of Captain America’s childhood. Trust me, any Captain America fan will throw this comic into another dimension after they read the last page. I almost did! This is a comic you do NOT want to miss!

    DC Universe Rebirth comics at TFAW.com

    DC Universe Rebirth #1
    By: Geoff Johns, Gary Frank

    When time in the DC Universe has fractured in the past, it has caused a ripple effect throughout the Multiverse. Speedsters, usually a Flash, are a good focal point of these events as they have experience and understanding of traveling through the Multiverse.

    When the New 52 launched, it created a ripple effect in the fandom, where some people felt lost and grew to realize that some of their favorite legacy characters and relationships built over the years were simply gone. Undone by Flashpoint.

    This story follows one such lost legacy character who remembered the Post-Crisis/Pre-Flashpoint DC Universe. In a way that works intuitively and takes the reader on the journey of rediscovery. There is an event on the horizon, which is changing the Universe once again. We are beginning to understand some of what happened due to this. It could be a great jumping on point, and a point to jump back on for those who left, and especially meaningful to those who loved the tone that DC had carried for decades.

    Comics events can often come across in ways that don’t pay off, but if this is the opening salvo, I am more than willing to find myself delving deeply in to DC in ways I haven’t in years. Being an 80 page spectacular for only $2.99 is icing on the cake! There is a bigger story that is unfolding here, and I am unwilling to spoil that for any of you. Don’t miss this issue! Witness the Rebirth of the greatest characters in superhero comic books. [Casey D. at TFAW.com]

    Scooby Apocalypse comics at TFAW.com

    Scooby Apocalypse #1
    By: Jim Lee, Howard Porter, Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, Hi-Fi, Nick J Nap

    Today, DC’s second series from their re-launching of Hanna-Barbera hit’s the shelves. Scooby Apocalypse written and drawn by a large array of talented comic professionals. Including Jim Lee, Keith Griffen, J.M. DeMatteis, Howard Porter, Hi-Fi, and Nick J Nap.

    Like all great #1’s we get a good set up piece. We all know that Scooby and the gang have been together solving mysteries. In this series however we get HOW they came together not just solve a case, but save the world. All the personalities are still there. From Fred’s overbearing Macho-man attitude (even though he get spooked like no other *Mole people!*); Shaggy’s free love, care for his pal Scooby, and food; Daphne’s ego, and Velma’s smarts.

    This is easily the most out-there idea from the DC/Hanna-Barbera comics. It is very fluid in the way its story unfolds, and it will be interesting to see where their adventures lead. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Lobster Johnson comics at TFAW.com

    Lobster Johnson: Metal Monsters of Midtown #1
    By: John Arcudi, Tonci Zonjic, Dave Stewart

    We last left off with our intrepid hero Lobster Johnson working a case to find a missing transient, which led him on an amazing adventure in the sewers. After he investigated a strange priest who was practicing more then religion.

    Well, he’s back again to save Midtown from a pair of monstrous, and seemingly indestructible metal men. How will he be able to stop this unrelenting menace from destroying the city and leading its trail of chaos past the streets of New York? How will an old friend factor into the plan to put an end to this insanity? You’ll have to read and find out.

    Lobster Johnson and his team are always good for a thrilling noir Lovecraftian story that makes you feel like it could almost be possible.

    Mike Mignola is one of my hands-down favorite writers, artists, and just plain creators. With this series, he continues to build more and more depth in his ever expanding world alongside John Arcudi, who has been a staple in the Mignolaverse for years. Alongside amazing art by Tonci Zonjic and longtime colorist, nine time-Eisner award winner, Dave Stewart. [Steve M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    Future Quest #1
    By: Jeff Parker, Evan Shaner

    DC’s titular start off point of the new era Hanna-Barbera. Future Quest is a team up book of several Hanna-Barbera teams. Think of it like if the Justice League teamed up with Teen Titans, He-Man and Suicide Squad. Here we get an unnamed Space Team, Johnny Quest, Birdman (not an attorney at law in this series). Glimpses of the Humanoids, and the big guy himself, Space Ghost.

    This first issue does a great job in setting up why all these properties come together. Most of the issue is spent with the Quest family. Jeff Parker does a fantastic job giving Johnny and Hadji their adventurous youth-filled voices.

    It’s an interesting concept, bringing all these different characters from completely different universes together — that’s what makes this issue fun. Something that at first I thought “isn’t going to work,” does, and I’m ready for the next issue! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Civil War II #0
    By: Brian Michael Bendis, Olivier Coipel

    Civil War II starts out exactly the way an issue #0 should. It gives you what came before, and leaves you wanting for what comes next. It looks like the second war between heroes will be a more spiritual successor, rather than a direct sequel to Millar’s Civil War. Bendis fills the book with very real and often poignant character moments. She-Hulk’s closing arguments in court are especially good. War Machine’s job offer is something I hope to see pursued further. The art is the typical great character work and incredible layouts by Coipel.

    There’s a lot packed in the book and its full of potential. It’s easy to think this is just an event book cash grab, to capitalize on the release of the Captain America: Civil War. Instead Bendis and Coipel have a great hook of a story and two weeks seems like a lifetime to wait for the next chapter. [Dustin M. at Universal TFAW]

    Goldie Vance #2
    By: Hope Larson, Brittney Williams

    When we last left off in the first exciting issue of Goldie Vance, we saw our wunderkind solve the case of the missing necklace. Using another guest’s car to race one of the town’s street thugs to win back said necklace. During all that, she still found time to help out her friends.

    In this second installment of Goldie Vance, we find out that they can’t return the necklace. The owner is now mysteriously missing. Will Goldie be able to crack this case? Through out issue two, we learn more about Goldie and her family. We see a person from her past comes back, to find that things aren’t the same as they would like them to be. It’s hard to believe that they’ll be able to wrap this story up in only four short issues. I’m so excited to see what happens next.

    Hope Larson, as she always does, brings her unique style and fun dialogue to this project. Brittney Williams’s beautiful art brings the world of Goldie Vance to life. [Steve M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    Deadpool comics at TFAW.com

    Deadpool: Last Days of Magic #1
    By: Gerry Duggan, Scott Koblish

    Two words for this issue: Poor Deadpool! If you are up to date with Doctor Strange series, You understand that Empirikul is destroying all sources of magic. This unfortunately includes Deadpools wife, Shiklah. Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos are under attack and it’s up to Deadpool, Michael, and Benjamin Franklin to save her! I loved this issue because it showed that Deadpool is more than a goofy mercenary. The cameos and references were a great homage to the previous Deadpool runs from Daniel Way and Brian Poshen.

    If you love a darker side of Deadpool, wait until you read the last couple pages! I give it 3 sad faces 😥😥😥 and five chimichangas🌯🌯🌯🌯🌯. [Darcey M. at Universal TFAW]

    Dept H comics at TFAW.com

    Dept. H #2
    By: Matt Kindt, Sharlene Kindt

    The game is afoot. Mia has begun her investigation and EVERYONE is a suspect! In addition to the mystery, you learn some very important and interesting things about Mia, her brother Raj and their relationship.

    Matt and Sharlene Kindt deliver again with astounding colors and panels that make you feel as trapped as our main character. The story continues to pull you in as you realize that there is a lot more going on than a simple murder mystery. With fantastic, designs, writing, colors and lettering, by Marie Enger, Dept. H remains on my must read immediately list. [Sean W. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    22284

    It’s a big New Comic Book Day . With the end of Snyder and Capullo’s Batman Run, our comic intro to TV’s Supergirl, Tommy’s seduction to evil in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and we dive further into Valiant’s 4001 A.D.

    Batman #52 By: Scott Snyder, Riley Rossmo, Greg Capullo

    In the final issue of the New 52 Batman, we get insight into the part of Batman’s life that we haven’t been able to see. We all know what made Bruce Wayne the Batman. Events drove him to be the scourge of the criminal underground in Gotham and the rest of the DCU. In this new issue, though, Batman faces a new villain that is trying to steal one of Bruce Wayne’s secrets. It’s unsure what could it be–documents of his time as Batman? A list of the Bat-family’s identities? Even worse, the identity of other superheroes?–and tension is high until the final emotional pages. In this perfect end to a truly exciting 52 issue run. Which introduced us to the Court of Owls, the amazing events of Year Zero, Joker’s return in the terrifying Death of the Family, the “final” battle between Batman and his greatest enemy in Endgame, and his return in Superheavy. This issue shows us what is most valuable to both Batman and Bruce Wayne. Realizing that if disappearing is the first step, this issue shows us what the final step is, too. I can’t wait to see what comes next in Rebirth for our favorite caped crusader! [Steve M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    4001 A.D. X-O Manowar #1 By: Robert Venditti, Clayton Henry, CAFU

    Set 100 years from now, New Japan launches its new utopian city into the sky causing a shockwave that kills millions. The UN takes a page out of Pacific Rim’s playbook and gets to work on weaponized suits of armor to combat the threat of New Japan’s devastating and callous A.I. program, Father. What they don’t realize is that Father has anticipated and prepared for this. This provides a nice background for Valiant’s massive crossover event. Robert Venditti and Clayton Henry find all the right ways to hook readers in. Venditti’s dialogue and descriptions are honed in giving the story maximum effect. Henry delivers the chilling imagery of a society putting every resource into one ultimate weapon. This triumphantly builds up the X-O Manowar suits and Father. Two key players in the main 4001 A.D. story. If Valiant’s crossover seems daunting to jump into, this book will be a nice way to get your feet wet and get a taste for the stories ahead. Plus, it has giant robots fighting against a flying city while a pink cyber assassin kills people by turning them into binary code. What more could you ask for? [Tim S. at TFAW.com]

    Adventures of Supergirl #1 By: Sterling Gates, Bengal, Cat Staggs

    If you’re familiar with the popular CBS series Supergirl, then you’re in for a treat. Since this is a number one, old and new fans will quickly fall in love with this series. This issue gives you a good idea of what type of superhero Kara is, and what her biggest values are. Similar to her well-known cousin, she believes in helping and saving everyone no matter what the cost. Overall, she believes in hope. We start off in the middle of a major fight scene between Supergirl and Rampage. Kara is not going down without a fight. She soon realizes Rampage only gets stronger with each punch she takes. As Supergirl feels like she has won, she is brutally mistaken. Supergirl is knocked out, kidnapped and her sister’s life is in grave danger. Kara wakes up in a place she’s never been with people that know more about her than she knows about them. Will she be able to save her sister? Will she be able to defeat Rampage once and for all? I guess you have to read Adventures Of Supergirl #1! [Darcey M. at Universal Citywalk TFAW]

    Might Morphin Power Rangers #3 By: Kyle Higgins, Hendry Prasetya, Jamal Campbell

    Three issues in already, for me this is a top read, and even now I can’t wait for more. Let me explain what’s been going on: post-Rita creating the Evil Green Ranger, our gang of Power Rangers saved him. Although Rita still has her witching ways, trying to break Tommy down by manipulating what he sees, hears, and dreams. She’s trying to break him, and doing a good job at it. Kyle Higgens is leading me into this new, “updated” version of my childhood. Don’t think that I mean it’s gritty and dark. It blends the original mythology/charm with the spice of today’s storytelling standards. It’s incredible & every month I get excited to read it. Don’t get discouraged if you never watched Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back in ’93. You can very easily pick this series up and connect with these heroes. Boom, Kyle, Hendry Prasetya and Jamal Campbell all do such a good job bringing back this universe. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Punisher #1
    By: Becky Cloonan, Steve Dillon, Declan Shalvey

    It’s finally here the book that you’ve been waiting for! In the midst of all the crazy alien invasions and huge battles going on with the Avengers, there’s still street gangs and drug runners slipping through the cracks. Pushing weapons onto the streets and a new drug that makes anyone an unstoppable killing machine. The police can only do so much without crossing over the line. Who will inflict the justice that is sorely in need? Frank Castle “The Punisher“! He is judge, jury and executioner against all injustice in the streets of New York and will not stop until justice is served. In this breakout issue Frank runs into a ghost from his past that will change the course of things to come.

    Becky Cloonan (Demo and Southern Cross) picks up were Iconic writers Garth Ennis and Jason Aaron left off with Steve Dillon (Preacher, Hellblazer, Punisher Max). This is a perfect Punisher books with a fresh take from an incredible team. [Steve at Milwaukie TFAW]

    4001 A.D. #1
    By: Matt Kindt, Clayton Crain

    New Japan is a group of sectors that hovers in Earth’s orbit, an actual satellite nation, in the future. The A.I. construct who controls the functions and populace of this seeming utopia is called Father, whose champion is known as Rai, who has been jettisoned back down to the Earth. This series jumps right in without requiring any previous investment in the Valiant universe. The artwork is glorious, as you’d expect from Clayton Crain and David Mack, while the tapestry is designed by the phenomenal mind of Matt Kindt.

    Valiant are inclined to keep you wanting more, as their events are typically only 4 issues long, as this is. If you thirst for more, you can read the additional tie-ins (bringing the entire saga to only 12 issues, with checklist printed on the back of the issue) to fill your craving for this futuristic amazement! If that doesn’t wet your appetite, check out Rai , X-O Manowar , and Eternal Warrior , all of whom you will glimpse in 4001 A.D. This series already subtly examines the consequences that are linked to heroic actions, and further develops an interesting and new view of the fallout, from when a hero has already made a noble sacrifice. This one is a trip worth taking! [Casey D. at TFAW.com]

    Daredevil/Punisher #1
    By: Charles Soule, Szymon Kudranski, Reilly Brown

    Netflix’s Daredevil series introduced the MCU, and the world to Frank Castle aka The Punisher. It’s only fitting that we get another taste of that Daredevil vs Punisher story. Taking from Charles Soule’s current series, Daredevil has help from his partner, Blindspot. Let’s be honest here, he’s going to need it.

    As Matt Murdock gets ready for a prisoner transport of a Russian Mobster, Frank does his best to punish. Now Daredevil and Punisher have a score to settle. Pitting them against each other, and the Russian Mob. But how does Blindspot react when he’s introduced to the “hero” that is The Punisher? [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Beasts of Burden: What the Cat Dragged In
    By: Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer, Jill Thompson

    In this One-Shot issue the newest member to the Beasts of Burden comes under scrutiny for their past. Dymphna a familiar, has kept secrets from her group. They intend to find out what she’s been keeping from them. It’s safe to say, it’s more than they asked for!

    Beast of Burden has been and still is a fantastic series. Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer are fantastic in this series. The fun and creepiness is there, with relatable characters, even though they’re all animals.

    Jill Thompson paints her heart out on every page. It’ beautiful to look at. She does this great job with cat reactions in this issue. I can see my cats doing the exact same movement and jumps as we find out friends going on their adventure.

    If you like supernatural tales or want a series that only involves animals. Than this “Homeward Bound” meets Constantine is the series for you! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Aliens: Defiance #1
    By: Brian Wood, Tristan Jones, Dan Jackson, Massimo Carnevale

    In this new chapter of the terrors that are the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, we find that they’re looking to gather the Xenomorphs and use them as weapons. They will be stopped. They must be stopped.

    Brian Wood’s story is an interesting departure from what we’ve seen before — instead of surviving, they’re going hunting. The way this issue was built seems like it would also work as a TV or movie script. With a strong foreshadow, then going back in time for an introduction to the characters and places.

    Tristan Jones and Dan Jackson do a great team up with the art and colors. I love the emotion that Tristan brings to the characters faces. You can really see disgust and fear exceptionally well in this issue. Dan’s colors give it that dark atmosphere. You can hear the gun blasts, hissing, and screaming from the Xenomorphs in your head, a true testament to the immersion you’ll get with this issue.

    Overall, if you haven’t kept up on Aliens, Predator, or Prometheus stuff, Aliens: Defiance #1 is a great to start. If you want to read more, may I suggest Fire & Stone? [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Avengers Standoff Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega #1
    By: Nick Spencer, Daniel Acuña, Angel Uzueta

    This is my favorite Standoff series yet and I will tell you why — all of the events in this issue are cinematic.

    Daniel Acuña and Angel Uzueta really nail the head on the coffin with the amazing artwork making it feel like a movie. If you are not keeping up with the Standoff series, this issue masterfully summarizes everything that has been going on.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. got ahold of a cosmic cube and made a prison that seemed like reality for most of Marvel’s cruelest villains. However, a special well-known villain figures out the fake reality and uses it to their advantage!

    This issue tackles a lot of questions we have about Steve Rogers returning as Captain America next month. It also tells us how all the Avengers from different universes work together as one.

    We are Robin #11
    By: Lee Bermejo, Jorge Corona

    We Are Robin #11 is a turning point for The Robins — or what’s left of them. With a homicidal Joker gang on the loose in Middletown High, it’s up to a few to save the many.

    Jorge Corona has this cool style that reminds me of Skottie Young’s early work on Deadpool — it works really well for this series. Corona also has a knack of making the environment interesting to explore. Don’t worry, you never feel it’s too cartoony or childish.

    Lee Bermejo, who has been on the book since the beginning, seems to have an overall arc that he’s working toward, which is always a plus when reading an ongoing series. Although I’ve only read a few issues of this the series to date, this issue made me go back and read it from the first volume. [Josh C. at TFAW.com]

    X-Files #1
    By: Joe Harris, Matthew Dow Smith, Menton3

    Do you still believe? After this issue, I believe something is going on. With a mass shooting at a mall, our good agents are called in for an unknown reason. Why would a shooting spree fall into the line of “X-Files”?

    Something is sticking out like a sore thumb and by the end of the issue, Mulder knows it. It wasn’t just an accident that they were sent on this case. There is something more sinister in the background; much like there always seems to be with the X-Files.

    If the mini-series that recently hit the airwaves didn’t fulfill your weekly dose of Mulder & Scully, give IDW’s X-Files a read. Something to note is that there is a handy reader’s guide for both the newer stories and the classic comics in the back of this issue. Perfect for any fan looking to explore the comic book continuity. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

  • Goldie Vance – Our Newest Sleuth

    22034

    Goldie Vance at TFAW.com If there ever was a contender for best crime book for kids, this would be on top. With a tagline of “Nancy. Harriet. Veronica. There’s a new Sleuth on the block.” I had to give it a read.

    Hope Larson (A Wrinkle In time) & Brittney Williams (Patsy Walker aka Hellcat, Legend of Kora) team up for a new all-ages detective book from Boom! in the same vein as Nancy Drew and Harriet the Spy.

    The series focuses on Marigold “Goldie” Vance a 16-year-old who grew up at the Crossed Palms Resort, a nice resort in St. Pascal, Florida. Goldie has big aspirations beyond working the valet booth at the resort; she wants to be a Detective. She does her best to help Walter, the in house detective at Crossed Palms, although her help is not always wanted. Beyond that we have a great cast of characters, because a Sleuth is only as good as the company they keep. There’s Walter, as we spoke of before, and Cheryl LeBeaux, Goldie’s friend who also works the front desk. We also get introduced to Mr. Vance, Goldie’s father and the manager of the Crossed Palms, and Rob who helps Goldie run valet (and has a crush on Cheryl).
    Goldie Vance at TFAW.com

    What’s fun about this series is Goldie’s personality. She’s so eager to help and so sure of herself you can’t help but want her to solve every case. She is also pretty silly at times with how over confident she can be.

    Brittney Williams’ designs are fantastic. If you’ve read her and Kate Leth’s Patsy Walker aka Hellcat series, the art is very similar. That’s most certainly not a bad thing; her art is very fun and perfect for a story like this.

    Goldie Vance at TFAW.comWith this only being a 4-part miniseries, I can only hope that this book finds its audience so we can get more adventures with Goldie Vance and gang.

    The first three Goldie Vance issues are currently available for order right now at TFAW.com! Perfect for fans of Veronica Mars, Lumberjanes, Gotham Academy, or Scooby Doo.

     Black Panther comics at TFAW.com Black Panther #1
    By: Ta-Nehisi Coates, Brian StelfreezeThe King is Dead! Long Live the King! T’Challa has returned as the Black Panther and the King of Wakanda. Ta-Nehisi Coates, Brian Stelfreeze, and Laura Martin deserve a round of applause. The writing and art had me on the edge of my seat and color palette was nothing short of fantastic! This may be the most intense 1st issue of a series that I have read all year!

    We get plenty of action in this, the premiere issue of the new Black Panther comic. However, we also get an in depth look at Wakanda. Of course, the Black Panther is the star but there are quite a few characters to keep your eyes on! Politics, inner turmoil, love, and the possibility of war are all in play here and I love it! [Sean W. at Milwaukie TFAW

    Star Wars Poe Dameron #1
    By: Charles Soule, Phil Noto

    Thirty years after the evil Empire fell to the rebel forces lead by Luke, Han, and Leia, a military force known as the First Order is pushing to overthrow the new republic. General Organa has recruited Poe Dameron, the best pilot in the galaxy and his helpful droid BB-8, to get any information on the location of Lor San Tekka, the person with the whereabouts of the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker.

    In this first exciting issue of the new ongoing Star Wars Poe Dameron comic book series you get to see the forming of Poe’s brave team of rebels — the Black Squadron; Kare Kun, L’ulo, Jess Pava, Snap Wexley, and technician Oddy Muva. What traps await Poe and BB-8 when they go to find Lor? Find out as the new team works together on their first mission: a mission that will hold the fate of the galaxy in its hands. Also in this first issue, you get a amazingly cute minicomic all about the misadventures of BB-8 and the ways in which he interacts with all the rebels on base.

    Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine and She-Hulk) does a brilliant job again, with the beautiful art of Phil Noto following up his run on Chewbacca. You’ll love this new adventure in the ever-growing Star Wars comic book universe.

     Escape From New York comics at TFAW.com Escape From New York #16
    By: Christopher Sebela, Maxim Simic, Jason Copland

    Well this is it. After 16 Escape From New York issues, we’ve arrived at the last adventure we’ll see of Snake Plisskin for awhile. I’ve got to say, Christopher Sebela did it. He wrote a final issue that ended not only the Escape From Cleveland (I don’t know if that’s what is called, but that’s what I’m calling it.) story arc and left the series as a whole on a rather satisfactory note.

    Throughout this series Sebela has done a fantastic job of giving us story arcs that were fun, creative, and felt natural to the John Carpenter’s EFNY world. Maxim Simic and Marissa Louise both did a grand job from beginning to end. I’m sad to see this story end, but glad I had a seat on the ride. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]
