    Clone Conspiracy Omega #1
    By: Peter David, Christos N. Gage, Dan Slott, Mark Bagley, Stuart Immonen, Cory Smith

    As the Clone Conspiracy event winds down, it’s clear that Spider-Man’s life will never be the same again. With the Jackal’s clones breaking down across the world, friend and foe alike are suffering from grief and despair. Clone Conspiracy Omega #1 does an excellent job at showing the pain that Peter feels. Especially with the promises he made that he couldn’t keep.

    Writer Dan Slott provides an emotional ending to this saga. All while threading in some teasers for future stories involving Rhino, Kaine, and The Lizard. The issue features two small back-up stories. One story leads into Ben Reilly Scarlet Spider #1, and the other is a teaser for Amazing Spider-Man #25. Clone Conspiracy Omega #1 is a must-read comic for fans of this arc and provides a satisfying conclusion to this tale. [Josh P. at TFAW.com]

    Savage Things #1
    By: Justin Jordan, Ibrahim Moustafa, Jordan Boyd, John Paul Leon

    This brand new mini-series from writer Justin Jordan, inker Ibrahim Moustafa, and colorist Jordan Boyd; Savage Things is about a covert team trained to do nothing else but kill, and never be caught. So what could go wrong? Well, it looks like someone is trying to expose the truth.

    It’s an interesting breakdown from past to present in this issue. The first page introduces you to who I can only assume is our “hero”. Then jumping to the present we’re given the gruesome scenario I’ve been a fan of Ibrahim for a while now, and Justin Jordan’s stories have always been a great read. This covert-team-gone-rouge scenario should be a wild ride. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    James Bond – Black Box #1
    By: Ben Percy, Rapha Lobosco, John Cassaday

    James Bond #1 from Dynamite Entertainment is an exciting new entry in the James Bond series. Writer Benjamin Percy, known for his work on Green Arrow and Teen Titans, is joined by artist Rapha Lobosco to create a story that thrusts Bond into the 21st century. In “Black Box Part 1”, Bond is attempting to stop a data breach that could put a cavalcade of secrets online. However, while Bond is hunting down the source of the breach, a mysterious assassin is also hunting him.

    The action is as gripping as the story, as Lobosco’s action scenes are both exciting and easy to follow. Percy does an excellent job capturing Bond’s voice, and you’ll likely read his lines in the voice of your favorite Bond actor. The only downside about this new James Bond comic from Dynamite Entertainment is having to wait another month to get the next chapter. [Josh P. at TFAW.com]

    The Lost Boys comics at TFAW.com

    The Lost Boys #1
    By: Tim Seeley, Scott Godlewski, Tony Harris

    Set immediately after the events of the cult horror classic film, The Lost Boys #1 finds the Emerson Brothers attempting to find some semblance of normalcy while the Frog Brothers continue to hone their vampire hunting skills. Meanwhile, Grandpa Emerson maintains order in the Santa Carla Hunter’s Union. That is until a new gang of vampires hits the scene to cause some havoc. This time our cast of characters aren’t just involved by fate, they’re the target.

    Tim Seeley captures the tongue in cheek feel of the original film perfectly. The ridiculousness, yet somehow still serious tone comes through with each scene. Scott Godlewski recreates 1987 in all it’s glory and strangeness. Together, they make it feel like the direct follow up people have craved. [Mikey N. at TFAW.com]

    GRAB THE FIRST ISSUE OF THE LOST BOYS COMIC

    Spider-Man: Clone Conspiracy comics at TFAW.com

    Spider-Man: Clone Conspiracy #1
    By: Dan Slott, Jim Cheung, Gabriele Dell’Otto, Ron Frenz

    Clones and Spider-Man. In the mid-’90s, these two were intertwined pretty heavily for better or worse. Now, history is repeating itself with Spider-Man: Clone Conspiracy #1 by Dan Slott and Jim Cheung. This is the big Spidey event of the year and Slott has been building toward it since this year’s Free Comic Book Day title from Marvel.

    Looking at the timeline, this story arc is going to run all the way through February of next year and it is starting out on the right foot. There’s a lot of set up in this issue but it works, although it does help if you’ve been reading Amazing Spider-Man lately but it’s not so dense that you can’t dig this book up fresh and figure out what’s going on. Slott definitely gets who Peter Parker is, and I think that’s the strongest element of his take on Spider-Man.

    Jim Cheung’s art is as beautiful and dynamic as ever. I really like his rendition of Rhino. There’s also a nice back up story by Slott with art by Ron Frenz that takes us back to the death of Gwen Stacy that’s an excellent character piece. This is absolutely recommended. [Dustin M. at Universal City Walk TFAW]

    Super Mario Adventures Graphic Novel at TFAW.com

    Super Mario Adventures
    By: Kentaro Takekuma, Charlie Nozawa

    If you ever had a Nintendo Power magazine as a kid, you may remember a small part of this graphic novel. The Super Mario Adventures GN reprints the classic comics that appeared in Nintendo Power back in the day. It’s a funny tale of Mario and “Weege” trying to save the Mushroom Kingdom, again. It’s classic ’80s comical Manga with over exaggerated emotions and the inclusion of terrible rapping.

    This was a fun trip down nostalgia lane. I can only hope that Viz can keep putting these books out! There were many comics that appeared in the Nintendo Power magazines. A Link to the Past came out last year and was the first and I only hope that Super Mario Adventures is not the last! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    NCBD gets scarred, beaten and saved with Black Monday Murders, Harrow County, Batman and Spider-Man

    NCBD review for Aug 10 2016

    This week for New Comic Book Day, Batman and Two-Face take a road trip, we learn about a cult that crashed the stock market, Harrow County’s Emmy finds out she has more family than she knew of, and Dead No More starts to unravel. As always these were only a few of this week’s new releases that stood out from the crowd. 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.

    Amazing Spider-Man comics at TFAW.com

    Amazing Spider-Man #16
    By: Dan Slott, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Alex Ross

    As Dead No More gears up, Amazing Spider-Man #16 lays the groundwork for what could be a pivotal moment in the Parker story. Jameson Sr. lays in a hospital bed with a genetic unknown disease. A scientist from NEW U tells the Parker and Jameson family that there is a new procedure that could work. Jay Jr. is hesitant but Peter wants to try. As Peter goes over NEW U’s research, an explosion pulls Spider-Man to a Parker Industries Plant. Spider-Man saves the day, or so it seems.

    Dan Slott has been doing an excellent job in his Amazing Spider-Man run – along with Giuseppe Camuncoli, Cam Smith, and Marte Gracia this issue has a John Romita Sr. style that is very welcoming. As the first issue to captivate us for Dead No More, Amazing Spider-man #16 is a great start!
    [Darcey M. at Universal City Walk TFAW]

    All-Star Batman comics at TFAW.com

    All-Star Batman #1
    By: Scott Snyder, John Romita Jr

    In this tale, which I like to consider “Gotham by Midnight (Run),” Batman is taking Two-Face on a road trip in an effort to permanently remove the fractured personality of Harvey Dent. Two-Face, on the acid-scarred hand, has other plans. Which he sets into motion offering to release all the blackmail material gained on everyone in Gotham over the years. Some surprises reveal that this dirt the Deacon of Duality has runs deep and no one is safe.

    The coloring by Dean White in this issue really adds texture and depth to the art, and Snyder’s pacing is as methodical as always. The backup story in this issue is even more compelling to me though. Having Duke (from the excellent We Are Robin) stepping into his new role training with Batman for what appears to be more of an ally than a sidekick role this time around. They set the boundary that he is not going to be Robin, but something else entirely. While also laying out the various training styles and how they resonated differently with each of Batman’s former sidekicks with color coding. Very interesting stuff that enriches the iconic Batman mythology even further.

    All-Star Batman looks to be an exciting new series from Scott Snyder, John Romita Jr, and Dead White. [Casey D. at TFAW.com]

    Black Monday Murders #1
    By: Jonathan Hickman, Tomm Coker

    What if I told you that you could be rich but, you’ll pay in blood. Money, Power, and Magic – it’s all one in the same in The Black Monday Murders.

    Johnathan Hickman’s newest series tells a tale of altered history, where Black Tuesday (the stock market crash of 1929), was set in play because of a debt. We as a whole owed someone or something and it was time to pay. We get jumped into the present as we see a detective getting a new case that’s one of his…

    As a first issue, this really pulls you in giving you a lot of backstory and insight to this world. There are internet forum posts, history book pages, and company/family tree’s added into this oversized issue. It gives just enough information to keep you intrigued.

    I always love Tomm Coker’s art and this series is no exception. Tomm draws out panels and frames them like a cinematographer. It’s amazing.

    The Black Monday Murders is a highly recommended series for those looking for an alt-history series that dabbles in black magic and crime noir. [Sean W. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    Harrow County comics at TFAW.com

    Harrow County #15
    By: Cullen Bunn, Tyler Crook

    One of the best horror comics being published today – Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook’s Harrow County – continues to weave this terror of magic, resurrection, and fate. In issue #15, Emmy is given a deeper look at her “family.” Given a choice that will not only affect her but her home as well.

    Crook does it again with his beautiful watercolor pages. Even if you don’t care for horror, his landscapes of Harrow County are just gorgeous to look at. Cullen Bunn also has this magnificent way of crafting his story to get you to come back month after month.

    There is a reason Harrow County was nominated for Best New Series at the 2016 Eisner’s and won Best Ongoing Title at the Ghastly awards in 2015. If you haven’t been reading this series, now is a fantastic time as the Syfy channel is adapting it for a series. Pick up Harrow County you won’t be disappointed! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Free Comic Book Day – Review of Captain America

    free comic book day - captain america / spider-manEveryone’s favorite earnest WWII superhero Steve Rogers (aka Captain America) is coming back to comics and what better opportunity to highlight that than with New Comic Book Day? Marvel’s released a terrific issue that’s focused front and center on Rogers, starting with him attending a Senate Intelligence hearing about the renewed threat of Hydra to peace loving Americans around the world.

    Commander Sharon Carter of SHIELD is in the hot seat, defending the agency for its failure to prevent a Hydra attack in Brussels the previous week. In a sophisticated story turn, SHIELD did stop the Hydra terrorists from blowing up the Chrysler building in New York City, but that wasn’t the only thing the nefarious Hydra was planning. Lack of perfection, fallout from their battles to defend innocent people, it’s very much the story that propels the splendid new Captain America: Civil War movie, and that’s no accident, of course!

    Falcon and Eagle show up as part of the SHIELD team, with a great sequence where they try to stop a renegade Hydra driver, and finally there’s a surprise appearance at the Intelligence hearing too, as most of the action in the story is told in flashbacks, a very cinematic technique that helps propel this story along at a brisk pace.

    The second half of the book is a Spider-Man story called Dead No More, which resurrects Oksana and The Rhino as part of a shadowy plot by, well, someone who doesn’t have our best interests at heart, nor those of business owner Peter Parker. It’s a fun second story to this free issue and together they’re a great pair, well worth picking up!

    Oh, and I’m definitely #TeamCap when it comes to the movie too.

    Steve Rogers, Captain America: Written by Nick Spencer, art by Jesus Saiz, and The Amazing Spider-Man: Written by Dan Slott, art by Javier Garron.

    New Comic Book Day — Reviews for New Suicide Squad #18, Agents of SHIELD #3 & More

New Suicide Squad comics at TFAW.com New Suicide Squad #18
    By: Tim Seeley, Juan Ferreyra

    Twist and Turns Ladies and Gentlemen! If you want them, the newest issue of New Suicide Squad has them. Harley delivers a whimsical yet informational recap of a seemingly pointless story. However, stick with it, it leads somewhere exciting.

    This issue is rich with character development and the team sets us up for a whole new (possibly disastrous) plot. We also get to catch up with Amanda Waller and get a reminder that she is NOT TO BE TOYED WITH!

    Tim Seeley delivers yet again with an issue that contains great dialogue for all and is fantastically displayed in the artwork by Juan Ferreya. [Sean W. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    Amazing Spider-Man #9
    By: Dan Slott, Matteo Buffagni

    Amazing Spider-Man #9 From owning the biggest company with top notch technology to being known as the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Peter Parker has it all! Er, well almost… Unfortunately, all of Parker’s successes have led to villains tracking his every move. In the previous issues, we are introduced to the terrorist group, Zodiac. They steal Peter’s latest technology to hack into S.H.I.E.L.D.’s security system to find a super rare artifact. What are they going to do with this artifact? World domination of course!

    This issue kicks off a new story arc in which Nick Fury and Spider-Man team up to find Zodiac’s leader, Scorpio. If you really liked Superior Spider-Man, I am positive you will love this storyline. I mean after all, the same team that brought you Superior Spider-Man is doing this series! [Darcey M. at Universal TFAW]

     	
New Suicide Squad comics at TFAW.com Batman/TMNT #4
    By: James Tynion IV, Freddie Williams II, Jeremy Colwell

    The Turtles are trying to get home, but they’re up to their shells in trouble. With the help of Batman and an old friend, it looks like they may finally have some luck on their side.

    We are now four issues deep into the awesome Batman/TMNT crossover and James Tynion IV’s story is still as intriguing as ever. Freddie E Williams II and Jeremy Colwell are a fantastic pairing on art–I especially enjoy the decision to give the turtles different styled face masks.

    As the story continues it gets more and more clear that each turtle shares traits with Batman. With Raphael being Batman’s darker boding personality. Donatello, his tech side. Leonardo, the martial artist, and Michelandelo….uh…maybe not all.

    If you haven’t caught this from the beginning, go back and start. With DC/IDW doing second & third printings of the series you know it has to be good. [Martin M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

     	
Green Lantern #50 comic book review at TFAW.com Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #3
    By: Marc Guggenheim, German Peralta

    Picking up from an excellent cliffhanger from the previous issue, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 jumps immediately into the action and keeps a solid pace, despite having to dump a lot of exposition on the readers who might not be caught up on Marvel’s Avengers Standoff crossover. Character sum up what’s been happening so far without too much stilted or forced dialogue. The chase for Whisperer is the best part of the book and (Spoiler warning if you haven’t read the first two parts of Standoff) Rick Jones uses things that don’t seem unrealistic for a character with his history to have access.

    Peralta’s art is clear and dynamic, and Guggenheim fills the script with nods to both the current events of the Marvel Universe but nice bits of history as well. He’s been a part of a great team on the DC TV side as creator of Arrow and Flash and now doing and excellent adaption of Marvel’s most well-known network show. This one is highly recommended. [Dustin M. at Universal TFAW]

    X-Files Deviations (one-shot)
    By: Amy Chu, Elena Casagrande

    The X-Files Deviations is a wonderful parallel for fans of the first episode. In this new story, wrier Amy Chu recreates what started it all with one major twist — Dana Scully is partnered with Samantha Mulder. Samantha’s brother Fox was the one who went missing all those years ago and now the two must work together to find the truth that is out there.

    The story moves along at a good pace and Casagrande’s style matches the tone of the story. For most fans, the relationship between Mulder and Scully is probably the most iconic thing about the show, but without it could the series thrive? This issue has me thinking yes. It’s a must read for any X-Files fan. Don’t forget about the other IDW Deviations one-shot issues starring the Ghostbusters, TMNT, Transformers & G.I. Joe. I’m really looking forward to those now that I’ve read this issue. [Travis S. at TFAW.com]

    The Best Comics of 2015 – Part 2 of 5 – Marvel

    –UPDATE: YOU CAN VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE ONCE PER DAY NOW THROUGH 1/14/16!–

    As we look forward to the new year, we want to stop and remember the great books that were released in 2015. What follows is the second in a series of five Best Comics of 2015 pieces we’ll be posting through January 6. Missed Part 1? Check it out here. Starting January 7, you’ll have the opportunity to weigh in and help us crown the Best Comic of 2015!

    Marvel Comics is home to Jessica Jones, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and a host of other amazing characters. With millions of fans worldwide and decades of quality storytelling under its belt, the publisher is the largest comic book company in the United States.

    The Best of Marvel Comics (in no particular order):

    Silver Surfer
    By: Dan Slott, Michael Allred, Laura Allred, Joe Sabino

    The new Silver Surfer series by Dan Slott, Michael Allred, and Laura Allred has been a complete delight. I’ve been in love with this series from day one. You tell me that the Allreds are working on an ongoing story and I’m on board, but add in Dan Slott’s characteristic wit and you know you’re in for a great ride.

    The aspect of this series that really shines is that Slott grounds the cosmos-spanning series by pairing Norrin Radd with a loveable companion, Earth’s Dawn Greenwood. We get to discover the universe alongside Dawn, and marvel at the enormous power of the Surfer. Slott gives us exactly what we want in the form of Galactus, and as tensions rise, we see the greatness of his storytelling — but you’ll have to read the book to find out what I’m talking about.

    Like I said, the Allreds are tremendously talented, and I couldn’t think of a better artistic pairing that would result in a light-hearted, fun series. If you’re a fan of Doctor Who, trust me when I say you’ll LOVE this series. Lucky for us, a new story begins in January when Slott, Allred & Allred take us on a new/continuing journey. [Josh C.]

    Daredevil
    By: Mark Waid & Chris Samnee, Charles Soule & Ron Garney

    This was a big year for Daredevil, what with the series debut back in April, and the end of Mark Waid & Chris Samnee’s amazing 58 issue run. Then to top it off we had the return of Daredevil just last month after Marvel’s Secret Wars crossover event with Charles Soule and Ron Garney as the new creative team.

    I started reading Daredevil on a regular basis with Mark Waid’s run. It’s got that great edgy darkness in the writing that is just enough to please Miller fans. Yet, tied with Samnee’s pulp style visuals, it keeps the story from being all dark all the time. Charles Soule’ comics hint at the darkness found in the Daredevil television show and nods Brubaker/Benids runs. We’re only 2 issues in so far but it’s still got me begging for more. Ron Garney’s art is definitely more in line with the Alex Maleev/Micheal Lark style, and I dig it. [Martin M.]

    Star Wars comics at TFAW.com Star Wars and Vader
    By: Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Stuart Immonen, Simone Bianchi, Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca

    2015 saw the beginning of a new era for Star Wars comics and Marvel exploded out of the gates with superstar talents Jason Aaron and John Cassaday. This ongoing series follows the exploits of Luke Skywalker in the aftermath of his destruction of the Death Star. The whole gang joins him as the Rebel Alliance continues to fight against the Galactic Empire! With a classic mix of action and lighthearted moments, this story feels like Star Wars in every way.

    As the year went on, the hits kept coming with A-list artists Stuart Immonen and Simone Bianchi going the book. Bringing Mike Mayhew and Leinil Francis Yu on deck for 2016 (and it doesn’t look like Jason Aaron is going anywhere!) make it clear that Marvel is keeping Star Wars filled with top talent for the foreseeable future!

    There are two sides to every story. And fans have always wanted to see the story from Darth Vader’s perspective. Well, Marvel’s got them covered with a story line from the Sith Lord’s viewpoint in the ongoing Darth Vader comic book series. It’s the entire galaxy against Vader until he makes some unlikely allies who absolutely steal the show: Doctor Aphra and her droids! These are the sadistic yet charming villains that Kieron Gillen was born to write and one look at Salvador Larroca’s art will have you rooting for the bad guys! [Jeff B.]

    Mighty Thor comics at TFAW.com

    Thor
    By: Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman, Jorge Molina, Joe Sabino

    You’d be hard-pressed to find a better comic book than Jason Aaron & Russell Dauterman’s Thor and Mighty Thor. Talk about heroics–Aaron expertly weaves the story of Jane Foster (Thor’s ex-girlfriend) as the new Mighty Thor.

    She’s been in the hero business ever since Marvel’s Original Sin, but the team really dialed things up this year. Foster’s cancer has gotten worse, and Thor’s old enemies have started attacking in earnest. In the face of all of this, her grace and bravery shines through.

    I’m really excited to see Russell Dauterman’s art each month. He’s a relative newcomer on the comics scene, but it feels like he and Aaron have been working together for decades. If you’re like me, you’ll find yourself enamored with Dauterman’s depiction of facial expressions, the flow of lightning, and little pieces of Earth and flesh flying through the air. A truly magical series. [Josh C.]

    Spider-Gwen comics at TFAW.com Spider-Gwen
    By: Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez

    One of the hottest new characters actually spun out of Marvel’s Spider-Verse crossover (see what we did there?). When you get down to it, Spider-Gwen is a retelling of Spider-Man. Except that Gwen Stacy, got bit by the radioactive spider.

    What I really enjoy and connect with here is that it’s the same Parker-humor that we all love but coming from someone that we’ve all missed. I instantly connect with the character due to her strong ties in Spider-Man lore, while still being curious about her Earth (Earth-65 if you follow that sort of thing).

    One of my favorite moments came during Spider-Verse when Spider-Gwen and Spider-Man (Peter Parker of Earth-616) meet, there is this quick but very emotional panel that really pulled on my heart strings.

    This alternate Earth is one that is rich with past Marvel lore and new events that you’ve just got to discover. If you’re looking something old, new, but maybe not red and blue, you’ll want to pick this book up. [Martin M.]

    Honorable Mentions:

    Stay tuned to the TFAW Blog in the coming days as we’ll be posting four more Best Comics of 2015 lists. At the end, YOU will decide which one will be crowned as the Best Comic of 2015!

    May Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Empowered Special: Internal Medicine review at TFAW.comNo two reviews are the same! You guys have once again outdone yourselves by sending in so many spectacular product reviews to choose from last month! Picking just three of you for this month’s winners was as hard as picking the original Multiple Man out of a whole group of dupes. However, after reading through the hundreds and hundreds of uncanny reviews, we have hand picked three of our favorites as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. Below, you’ll find out who won from May’s Product Reviews. $25 TFAW gift certificates are on the way to the folks who posted them.

    David from Philadelphia, PA stopped by with his five star review of superstar writer Adam Warren’s Empowered Special: Internal Medicine from Dark Horse Comics:

    Empowered one-off while awaiting the trades. Don’t let the dessert cart of cheesecake fool you – Warren always spins a rich, interwoven story peppered with character, humor, and hyperbole courtesy of the Caged Demonwolf. While not my favorite of the one-offs–the ending teaser forces my hand to a “5.” ’nuff said.

    Superior Spider-Man #31 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Kenneth from Flushing, NY. He had this to say about the Superior Spider-Man #31:

    The look on the Green Goblins face when he realizes that it is actually Peter Parker he is fighting, not Doc Ock is priceless. Some readers had problems with the art in the second half of the book, but I am fine with it. When Spider-Man confronts J. Jonah Jameson at the end if the book, it is very moving and memorable. It made this series finally truly “superior.”

    My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic #17 review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Jeremy from Middletown, RI wrote a review for My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic #17 that we had to share:

    The MLP comic series continues to delight and inspire. These are the first comics that I have ever read and I am hooked forever by this point. They have even spurred me to start buying comics and graphic novels from other series and genres. I’m proud to say that I’m a comic book guy now.

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

    Remember, you don’t have to write a novel to win. Product reviews can be short and sweet, or highly detailed — as long as they help other customers, that’s what we’re looking for. So submit your reviews and help your fellow collectors sort out the “HOT” from the “NOT”! Who knows, you may be one of next month’s winners.
