    Black Panther and the Crew Kick Off

    Black Panther and the Crew #1
    By: Ta-Nehisi Coates, Butch Guice, John Cassaday

    I wasn’t sure what to expect before reading Black Panther and the Crew #1. I knew of Ta-Nehisi Coates from his excellent run on Black Panther but I was worried that Marvel was spreading Black Panther too far, too fast. Imagine my surprise to find out that despite being a prominent part of the title, Black Panther doesn’t make an appearance in the issue at all.

    Rather, the issue follows Misty Knight (and a surprise guest!) in a story that hits close to real world events while still fitting nicely into the Marvel Universe. Coates expertly captures the tension that exists today in places like Harlem, making the issue informative as well as interesting. Since this is a Marvel book, you can expect some action, and artist Butch Guice does an excellent job depicting it.

    Black Panther & The Crew #1 offers something different than your standard Marvel comic and is highly recommended. I’m eagerly anticipating to see just how Luke Cage and Black Panther figure into the story. It’s not a book that was on my radar before but I’m immediately adding to my subscription; after you give it a read, I guarantee that you’ll feel the same.

    If you like this comic, you’ll love Coates’ work on Black Panther!

    Aliens: The Original Comics Series Volume 2
    By: Mark Verheiden, Den Beauvais, Sam Kieth

    Before we got Alien 3 in theaters, we got Dark Horse’s Aliens Comics. And oh boy were they exciting! I remember reading these as a kid in excitement for the next movie. Seeing Hicks, Newt and Ripley all together fighting against Xenomorphs, I couldn’t wait for the next movie! Alas, we got David Fincher’s Alien 3 instead.

    This rerelease hardcover contains the original Dark Horse arcs: Aliens: Nightmare Asylum and Aliens: Female War. It also reverts back to the original character names, which were changed in printings that came AFTER the release of Alien 3, from what I understand.

    Nightmare Asylum, by writer Mark Verheiden and artists Den Beauvais and Sam Kieth, tells the four-part story about militarizing the Xenomorphs and what Hicks and Newt do to stop it.

    In the second story, Female War, Ripley is forced back into the fray to protect Newt.

    This beautiful hardcover collection is a must have for Aliens fans! There’s no better way to celebrate Alien day on 4/26!

    MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT ALIENS: DEAD ORBIT COMING SOON!

    Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #18
    By: Robert Venditti, V Kenneth Marion, Mikel Janin

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #18, like many of DC’s current titles, represent a rebirth of the Corps. Back in their home universe, the Corps unites under John Stewart, whose first order is to unite both the Green Lanterns and the Yellow Lanterns together to form one supreme space force. As you can expect, tensions are high and bad blood soon turns into spilled blood.

    Just when things couldn’t look any worse, a surprise visitor lands on the Corps’ doorstep. This mystery man will be very familiar to fans of The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow!

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #18 is an excellent jumping on point for newcomers. Past events are succinctly explained and the focus is more on the future than on the past. This arc is shaping up to be one of Robert Venditti’s best and will impact the Corps for years to come. If you’ve ever wanted to check out this comic, now is the best time!

    Check out Green Lanterns to see how this arc impacts Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz!

    The Walking Dead #163
    By: Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard

    Man, for 25¢ this was a non-stop pulse-pounding issue. The largest group of Walkers they’ve ever encountered is headed right toward their town. Like everything in this world, the only thing they can do is fight. They send off a few of the crew on horseback to hopefully lead the heard away. While others in the town try a fend off the rest.

    I’ve been reading The Walking Dead on and off for about 5 years now. Full disclosure this is the first issue in a while for me, and it reminded me why I got hooked on this series in the first place. Even though it’s a story, Robert Kirkman has always been able to make this feel real. I know these people and what they’re going through. I don’t want to say goodbye to them anytime soon. Let’s hope the herd isn’t too much for them. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    CATCH UP ON THE WALKING DEAD

    Detective Comics vol 1
    By: James Tynion IV, Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, Alvaro Martinez, Raul Fernandez, Al Barrionuevo

    While Batman has always had one of the most extensive networks of supporting characters and partners, he’s always operated like a lone wolf, often to his detriment. Realizing this, Batman is now embracing the importance of operating and training a team of heroes to better protect Gotham City. Lead by Batwoman, the two of them assemble of a team of fan-favorite characters, Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan, and Clayface, to revolutionize the concept of the Bat-Family.

    James Tynion IV kicks off this series with an explosive punch that shakes an already new team to the core. The depth in which he develops every character in the group in just 7 issues is not only impressive but easily sets this series up as being one of the most important Batman books in years. Eddy Barrows art is certainly to thank for how impactful this is as well. Whether it’s giant cityscape action scenes or fights in a room, this is easily one of the best-looking books on the shelves for superheroes.

    If you’re a Bat Family fan, or just jumping on board DC’s Rebirth, Detective Comics Vol 1 is a must read…especially for what DC has in store. [Mikey N. at TFAW.com]

    CATCH UP ON ALL OF DC COMICS REBIRTH STORIES

    Paper Girls #11
    By: Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chang

    Monsters, Time Travel, the 80’s? Why aren’t you reading this book? Holy crap. After the events of the first 10 issues our heroes find themselves hoping they’re back in their own time, on their own planet. It looks to be the case, until Mac finds someone who doesn’t speak any language I’ve seen before, and a beast that’s not of our world.

    If you’ve been urging for Season 2 of Stranger Things, Paper Girls is a great way to spend that in-between seasons time. Brian K Vaughan, Cliff Change, and Matt Wilson have done a tremendous job with this series thus far and Issue 11 is no exception. I can’t wait to see where this goes from here. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    All New X-Men #1.MU
    By: Jeremy Whitley, Carlo Barberi, Adam Kubert, Ron Lim

    A tie-in to the Monsters Unleashed event currently happening, The team of young X-Men decide to take a vacation to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. While the team goes to see the sights, Wolverine meets up with her old partner Gambit in the swamps. What starts as a team-up investigation, quickly turns into an all-out monster battle, with New Orleans caught in the middle of it.

    While a tie-in, Jeremy Whitley weaves a fun, stand-alone adventure. Even if this weren’t part of a bigger story, this issue could easily stand up as one of the classic weird X-Men books the series is known for featuring from time to time. Carlo Barberi and Ron Lim bring to life all the spectacle of a monster movie, but all the dynamic shots of a superhero comic.

    Whether or not you’re picking up the main Monsters Unleashed title, All-New X-Men #1.MU is worth your time. [Mikey N. at TFAW.com]

    Justice League #12 goes deeper into Justice League vs Suicide Squad

    Let’s get crazy with Moon Knight, bite off more than we can chew with Nailbiter, and learn some new things in Justice League this week. As always these are only a few choice highlights from this weeks new releases. Check out our other blog articles to see our thoughts on other books. Be sure to comment or share our post on Facebook or Twitter if you like our articles!

    SPOILER ALERT — We try to keep from posting spoilers, but one may sneak through to our reviews now and again. Read with caution, true believers.

    Justice League #12
    By: Tim Seeley, Christian Duce, Tony S. Daniel

    As a tie-in to Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, Justice League #12 gives us a view inside the motivations of the event’s villain, Maxwell Lord. Captured by Amanda Waller, Max is under interrogation the entire issue. But is he really the one being interrogated? This book cuts between the present interrogation, and various scenes of Max’s career.

    Tim Seeley continues to be one of the best go-to writers DC has. His understanding and treatment of characters always honors their past but pushes them into the future. Christian Duce’s art is wonderful; to the point that I’m surprised I haven’t seen his work on a more consistent basis.

    Tie-ins can feel like less of a whole story sometimes. This team, however, brings a stand-alone issue that actually enhances the whole event. [Mikey N. at TFAW.com]

    GET ON BOARD JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD

    Nailbiter #28
    By: Joshua Williamson, Mike Henderson, Adam Guzowski

    28 issues and still going strong. With the last issue leaving off with Alice coming home to her mom being attacked. She snaps into action saving her. But for how long? Someone is planting bombs under Buckaroo Oregon, but I think this may just be a distraction. It seems this person may want the whole Nailbiter family instead.

    Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson have been at this from the beginning. Mike’s dynamic art really pops with Adam Guzowski’s colors on this issue, especially when it comes to the explosions.

    If you’ve missed out on this series at the beginning. It’s worth the catch-up. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    CATCH UP WITH NAILBITER

    Moon Knight #10
    By: Jeff Lemire, Wilfredo Torres, Greg Smallwood, Jordie Bellaire

    Death and Birth starts now! Though this is issue #10 this is a great jumping on point. The team of Jeff Lemire, Greg Smallwood and Jordie Bellaire do an amazing job of pulling you into Marc Spector’s insane life. A new glimpse of his history, a splash of his present predicament, and a proper push to more adventure take place in this issue.

    Take your time with this issue. There are little treats for the eye in almost every panel. In addition, Lemire captures your emotional spectrum once again. With brilliant storytelling, pacing, colors and panel layout, you will not be disappointed! Just when you thought it was over…MOON KNIGHT takes off! [Sean W. at TFAW.com]

    The Final Arc of Life and Death Begins

    NCBD 12/28/16

    Every week, we’re lucky to get a New Comic Book Day. With new titles, new arcs, and exciting continuations of ongoing stories, Wednesday is our favorite day. This week, Hulk starts over, the final arc of Life and Death begins, and Wonder Woman needs saving?!? Yep! As always these are only a few of the comics that came out this week. Check out our other blog articles so see our thoughts on other books. Be sure to comment or share our post on Facebook or Twitter if you like our articles!

    SPOILER ALERT — We try to keep from posting spoilers, but one may sneak through to our reviews now and again. Read with caution, true believers.

    Aliens vs. Predator: Life and Death #1
    By: Dan Abnett, Brian Thies, Rain Beredo, David Palumbo

    This issue kicks off the final arc of Life and Death, which is a crossover story that spans Prometheus, Aliens, and Predator.

    Aliens vs. Predator opens after the events of Aliens: Life and Death. The Colonial Marine ship Hasdurbal is under attack, and those on the surface of LV-223 are unaware of the danger there. What they do know however, is the threat of bugs is imminent. Xenomorphs are coming for them, and they may have to do the unthinkable to survive.

    Dan Abnett‘s Life and Death has been an exciting adventure to read from the very beginning. I hope that these are not the end of the Aliens/Predator/AvP/Prometheus crossover stories. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    SEE WHAT IT’LL TAKE FOR THE USCM TO SURVIVE

    Wonder Woman #13
    By: Greg Rucka, Renato Guedes, Romulo Fajardo JR, Liam Sharp, Brad Anderson

    With Wonder Woman not quite herself, it’s up to Steve Trevor, the one often being saved by Wonder Woman, to do what he can to save the person he loves. Steve, giving insight to his point of view on his relationship with our favorite Amazonian princess, narrates this entire issue. We also get to see his military and survival training put to the test as he tries to outthink and outlast their pursuers.

    Greg Rucka continues to redefine Wonder Woman while giving the reader a deeper understanding of the character, and how her supporting characters work. Renato Guedes does a great job filling in for regular Liam Sharp, giving us a brilliantly paced book, which often times can be difficult with narration heavy stories.

    Wonder Woman #13 does a great job building up a supporting character, and setting the stage for a new story arc you will not want to miss. [Mikey N. at TFAW.com]

    JOIN THE BATTLE WITH WONDER WOMAN

    Hulk #1
    By: Mariko Tamaki, Nico Leon, Matt Milla, Jeff Dekal

    I like to see the vulnerabilities in our heroes. The Flash is at his best when he’s up against the ropes. Iron Man excels when he’s forced to think (not punch) himself out of a situation.

    Hulk #1 picks up after the events of Civil War II where she suffered greatly at the hands of one of Marvel’s strongest villains and experienced the loss of a loved one. Jennifer Walters is battling depression, self-doubt, and a rage that she cannot bottle up for much longer.

    While we see hints of the Hulk bursting forth, this issue is about Jennifer and her experiences getting back to her normal life as a lawyer. Mariko Tamaki expertly handles Jennifer’s inner dialog (I went back through for a second reading to just read that) and sets up the tone for the series in this opening bow. Consider me hooked!

    NCBD: Supergirl and the Suicide Squad Join DC’s Rebirth

    New Comic Book Day 8/17/16

    This week brought a strong group of comics. For New Comic Book Day, we continue catch up with The Punisher and Daredevil as a conflict comes to a head, jump into the new Suicide Squad series, continue reading Jeff Lemire’s incredible Black Hammer series, and check out Supergirl’s Rebirth. Remember, these are only a few of this week’s new releases be sure to check the TFAW website to see even more. We’d love to know what you think of these books too!

    SPOILER ALERT — We try to keep from posting spoilers, but one may sneak through to our reviews now and again. Read with caution, true believers.

    Black Hammer comics at TFAW.com

    Black Hammer #16

    By: Jeff Lemire, Dean Ormston, Dave Stewart

    We last left Black Hammer with the whole team meeting up to reminisce their past lives with the hero (and their leader): the amazing Black Hammer.

    In this new issue we get to see a glimpse into the background of Gail Gibbons, aka Golden Gail, wherein she was given the gifts of the gods to fight to keep the world safe — or is it a curse? Now Gail, stuck in the body of a nine-year-old, is just trying so hard to get back the powers that she once felt burdened with. We also get to see Walky Talky and The Barbalien trying to get a probe outside the boundaries of the small town that they are trapped in. Also, we get to see a clash with one of their old foes, Doctor Sherlock Frankenstein (best name ever!).

    How will this “family” deal with all the troubles of trying to fit into the small town they’re stuck in, and what steps will they take to find their way home? Are they even in their universe, or are they in a pocket dimension? Could this be an elaborate trap by a villain from their past?

    All that, plus we still don’t know the full story of Black Hammer’s fate. I’m really looking forward to learning more in the next issue of Black Hammer. [Steve M. at Portland TFAW]

    Daredevil Punisher #4

    By: Charles Soule, Szymon Kudranski, Jim Charalampidis, Clayton Cowles

    Daredevil Punisher #4 completes the “Seventh Circle” story, and it’s been a great ride. DD and Punisher have worked together in the past, but they’re at odds this time over a gangster named Sergey Antonov. D.A. Matt Murdock is transferring Antonov to Texas so he can get a fair trial, but Frank Castle thinks he needs to be punished for his crimes.

    Soule wraps up the Daredevil Punisher miniseries in spectacular form, but I won’t tell you how this one ends, folks. What I will say is that it’s really great seeing how far both Daredevil and Punisher will take things, given their conflicting convictions. [Josh C. at TFAW.com]

    Suicide Squad comics at TFAW.com

    Suicide Squad #1

    By: Rob Williams, Jim Lee

    For anyone who wants to learn more about Suicide Squad after the wonderfully fun movie, you should definitely grab a copy of Suicide Squad #1! The story starts off with Amanda Waller’s inner monologue discussing why she assembled the Suicide Squad — she believes that bad can do good, and she’s . . . well . . . somewhat right!

    The group is sent to retract a cosmic cube in space, and as the group battles motion sickness, Williams provides a flashback of how Deadshot landed right into Amanda Waller’s Task Force X. It’s a great first issue, and I can’t wait to see where this one goes. Pick this issue up before it sells out! [Darcey M. at Universal City Walk TFAW]

    Supergirl Rebirth #1 by Steve Orlando at TFAW.com

    Supergirl Rebirth #1

    By: Steve Orlando, Emanuela Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy, Michael Atiyeh

    Supergirl Rebirth serves as a slingshot for those unfamiliar with Supergirl’s past and her place in the DC Universe. The issue starts with a flashback that establishes a potential threat (or possibly ally).

    In the new status quo that is the DC Rebirth, Supergirl only recently crash landed on Earth (like, a few months ago recent), and the D.E.O. is trying to make sure she becomes a hero like her cousin, Kal-El. They’ve assigned full-time handlers Eliza and Jeremiah Danvers to show her the ways of this planet and act as “parents” to her alter ego, Kara Danvers.

    I anticipate good things from writer Steve Orlando; we’re already seeing strong elements of a family drama for this series and I’m excited to see how Kara adapts to Earth and comes to understand our ways.

    Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy are already a good pair, and I’m excited to see how they will continue to come together as a team. Their art is similar to that of Terry and Rachel Dodson, and I couldn’t think of higher praise than that. [Josh C. at TFAW.com]

    January Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Detective Comics review at TFAW.comHundreds of great product reviews come in every month, and it’s our duty to pour through them and pick three winners as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. Below, you’ll see who won from January’s Product Reviews. We’ll be sending $25 gift certificates to the people who posted them.

    Jonah from Rawlins, WY is the first of this month’s winners. Here’s what he had to say about Detective Comics #15:

    Having mainly bought this for the tie-in to the Death of the Family event, I was pleasantly surprised at the upswing in quality of writing. The issue gave enough background to the last few issues to let you know what was going on, and crafted it’s own story while putting events in place of Joker’s reign of terror. It had the least to do with the event of the tie-ins I’ve read so far, and yet was still a good story. Misses the 5 star rating because of a few pieces of campy art that seemed misplaced, but otherwise a great issue.

    Superman review at TFAW.comNathan from Buffalo, MN wrote several reviews last month. His review of Superman #15 caught our eye.

    Recent issues of Superman have been lacking, but this one hopefully has this series back on track. It was real interesting to see modern day Lex in a prison of his own design. He also has a great interaction between Superman and Superboy, as he does his best to mess with their heads. This issue definitely will leave you wanting more Luthor.

    JLA Action Figure review at TFAW.comLast but not least, there’s Oscar from Imperial Beach, CA, who’s review for the Justice League Superman Action Figure #1 really spoke to us.

    Very high quality and given it’s based verbatim on the main New 52 JL design by Jim Lee it’s a bonus, dude sure has excellent aesthetics; blister/box presentation (minimalistic white) it’s also a big plus ~ as a collector I’m very happy with my purchase and will continue supporting this line-up from DC Collectibles

Below, you’ll see who won from December’s Product Reviews. We’ll be sending $25 gift certificates to the people who posted them.

    Michael from Tucson, AZ is the first of this month’s winners. Here’s what he had to say about My Little Pony Friendship is Magic #1 Box Set:

    There comes every once in a generation a publication that changes our very definition of the cultural world for the better. This is one of them. After reading this I got a promotion at work, Won the Jeopardy Championship, and now I’m a hit with the ladies! I could barely lift before, now I can bench 300lbs! Also, when carrying this home, I was caught in the crossfire of a gang shootout, and it deflect 3 bullets saving my life!

    Batman review at TFAW.comCasey from Redlands, CA wrote several reviews last month. His review of Batman #14 caught our eye.

    I am loving these Batman comics. These have gotten me into comics. Before the ‘Death in the Family’
    story arc started, I really didn’t read many comics. This has pushed me into them
    in such an awesome way! The Joker is insane and I love the dynamic between him and
    Batman.

    Colder review at TFAW.comLast but not least, there’s Felicia from Plainsboro, NJ, who’s review for Colder #1 really spoke to us.

    The cover was the first thing that caught my eye. I thought this looks awesome wonder
    what it’s about? After reading I’m so glad I picked this comic. It’s more than what I expected. With such suspense and mystery along with a strange crazy supernatural creature; I had to look out for the next issue. I had to put #2 on reserve in order to make sure I was able to purchase. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR #3!

    Thanks so much to everyone who wrote reviews last month. You’re helping people decide what to get (or what to avoid) next.

    Scott Snyder Ramps up DC’s New 52 Batman Series

    Batman is more exciting than ever at TFAW.com!

    Scott Snyder (American Vampire) and Greg Capullo (Action Comics, Haunt) are absolutely crushing the new Batman series right now. It’s not some trivial throw-away story–it is deeply engrossing and feels important. The story gives us a lot of insight into the character of Bruce Wayne, and Batman #6 was amazing! (Check out our review here)

    We’re excited to see where Snyder takes this series. If the description for Batman #8 is any indication, he’s just getting started.

    Broken and beaten, Bruce Wayne has retreated from Gotham City to Wayne Manor. But no place is safe, because the Court of Owls is about to strike at the heart of city, and nothing will ever be the same. Be there for the start of the battle for Gotham City’s soul, and the prelude to “The Night of the Owls.”

    There are a bunch of other great books in DC’s New 52 relaunch. Make sure you stay tuned to the TFAW Newsletter and check out our weekly comic book review videos to see which ones are making the grade.

    New Flashpoint Issues + Freebies!

    I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty psyched for DC’s Flashpoint. Geoff Johns is helming the mega-event, and I get the feeling that this will be the story of the year! We just added 22 new Flashpoint issues last week, so make sure you check ’em out!

    The event consists of the Flashpoint series proper, a host of three-issue miniseries focusing on key players in the DCU, several special one-shot issues, and a few crossover issues that will affect ongoing series.

    If you’re looking for a little something extra, check out the first wave of Flashpoint Action Figures or these cool Flashpoint T-shirts.
