    Millar & Capullo’s Reborn Is Just What Comics Needed

    New Comic Book Day November 16th

    Mark Millar turns his new series on its head this New Comic Book Day. Nightwing gets help with his nightmares, Doctor Strange starts a new arc, a new team of Renegades forms, and our magical cross country tour makes its first stop in Spell on Wheels.

    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.

    Nightwing #9
    By: Tim Seeley, Marcio Takara

    It’s common that after story arcs end, a single story issue provides some transition from one story to the other. It’s rare though that such issues are also character defining. Nightwing provides a bit of unseen backstory on Dick Grayson–namely that he has been haunted by nightmares for some time. In an attempt to help, Superman uses Kryptonian tech to enter Nightwing’s dreams. The adventure this takes us on shows not only how important Nightwing is (as the glue of much of the DC Universe), but also how this new Superman really is the back-to-basics version of the character fans have been craving.

    Tim Seeley continues to prove his love for Nightwing. He captures the fun, but also underlying struggle the character has been having recently. It’s this kind of nuance that has always made Nightwing a compelling character. Marcio Takara’s art adds the layer of grit needed, but without this feeling like a typical dark Gotham book.

    Personally, Nightwing is not anywhere near my favorite Bat-Family character, but with how well this book is, this has consistently been one of my favorite offerings from DC’s Rebirth. The balance of well-written stories with a large helping of heart hits this old comic fan right where it counts. I highly suggest you make this a regular pull. [Mikey N. at TFAW.com]

    Reborn #2
    By: Mark Millar, Greg Capullo

    This is it folks. This is where the real journey begins. The glimpse of this realm that we received in the first issue does not prepare you for how fantastical everything is. Mark Millar, Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, and Fco Placencia really made something special with this issue. At first, you start to see typical tropes from this type of story but then they immediately turn that on its head!

    You get a proper explanation, a good look at the protagonist, a few great mysteries and a great segue into what I am sure will be an epic adventure full of emotion. Read on warriors! [Sean W. at TFAW.com]

    Doctor Strange #14
    By: Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo, Al Vey, John Livesay, Victor Olazaba, Tim Townsend, Wayne Faucher, Antonio Fabela, Java Tartaglia

    The newest issue of the Doctor Strange comic book lives up to its name–Strange. Get ready to go to “all-new all-different” hell and pal around with Satana, the devil’s daughter.

    Wile the story reads like a quick scene in a larger narrative, I could see people really digging into this. Chris Bachalo’s art is whimsical and frenetic. He really shines when Strange takes on his astral form. Good stuff. Jason Aaron is taking a comical beat this issue and it’s rather fun to experience. I’ve had a lot of fun seeing Strange at his lowest, slowly dragging himself from the muck and rebuilding himself. [Josh C. at TFAW.com]

    Harbinger: Renegades #1
    By: Rafer Roberts, Darick Robertson

    A brand new #1 from the team at Valiant Entertainment. Harbinger: Renegades #1 is a new team of heroes. What looks to be fragments of the old Renegades team with some new faces. Like most team-up books, this issue sets up not only who the team will consist of, even if momentarily, but also who the villain is.

    Rafer Roberts’ writing is great; he creates a real world and gives the characters responsibilities and lives that fit within our reality more so than any other book I’ve seen lately. Darick Robertson does an amazing job with facial expressions–you really see the shock and awe in his line work. With the team just starting to come together, I’m anxiously awaiting the next issue. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Spell on Wheels #2
    By: Kate Leth, Megan Levens, Marissa Louise

    When we last left our trio of witches, they were on a road trip to get back their stolen magical items. Their first stop: Massachusetts. This issue of Spell on Wheels picks up with the gang as they meet with an old artist who purchased one of their stolen pieces. Unfortunately the package hasn’t arrived due to, you know, shipping and all. So the girls wait there until the next day for the package to arrive. Little do they know however it’s not quite that simple.

    I love the dialogue in this comic. It feels like I’m talking to a friend. Another thing I really enjoy about how Kate Leth wrote this is how strong these women are with or without magic. Next stop Connecticut! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Heroes From Another World

    In the canon of comic book characters there are classic heroes like Superman and Batman, but there are also some off-center heroes that are not exactly the typical tights-wearing dogooders.

    These characters not of this world and ones who have more in common with classic monsters than masked vigilantes. However, their outsider status frequently grants them the ability to comment on humanity differently than their more conventionally human counterparts.

    Let’s start with the tragedy of Dr. Alec Holland, or as he’s better known to readers–Swamp Thing. Holland is a brilliant biologist working on a top-secret bio-restorative formula in the swamps of Louisiana. When a bomb planted in his lab goes off, Holland is splashed with burning chemicals and he runs into the swamp. The muck of the swamp merges with the chemicals and turns Holland into the moss-covered hero he has been ever since.

    Man or Monster?

    swamp-thingOriginally created by comic book legends Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the original Swamp Thing stories deal in traditional monster tropes. We see Swamp Thing do battle with the mad scientist Arcane and his mutated UnMen, there are angry villagers, giant robots, and even a werewolf. Wein does manage to weave in a story about Holland trying to reclaim his humanity as an undercurrent in the fairly pulpy horror stories.

    Writer Alan Moore brought this undercurrent of humanity to the surface when he took over the book in 1984. Moore reconceived the character as a part monster that had been imbued with memories of Dr. Alec Holland. By inverting the story of a man made into a monster to monster made into a man, Moore created a metaphysical tale of character dichotomy. This change in creative direction brought a whole new audience to DC’s horror tale.

    Swamp Thing has changed creative hands a number of times in his four decades of history. The likes of Mark Millar, Brian K. Vaughn, Grant Morrison, and Scott Snyder have all added to his character development. With the ongoing struggle between man and monster and the trippy mythology gifted to him by Moore, Swamp Thing presents different creators with the chance to tell deeply human and emotional stories in the world of the macabre and the supernatural.

    Defining Deadman and Redemption

    deadmanSwamp Thing is not DC’s only undead superhero. Five years before Alec Holland fell into that swamp, readers were introduced to the aptly named Deadman. Created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, Deadman is the ghost of acrobat Boston Brand who was murdered during one of his acts. The Hindu god Rama Kushna gives Brand’s spirit the power to possess any living being. With this power and his new superhero identity as Deadman, he sets out to track down the man who killed him, a mysterious figure known only as “The Hook.”

    Much like Swamp Thing, it would be another comic book luminary not involved with the initial creation of the character who would come to define Deadman. Writer/Artist Neal Adams took over creative duties in the second issue and not only brought his legendary high detail art, but a new depth to Boston Brand’s story. In Swamp Thing, Alec Holland is an altruistic scientist trying to better humanity with his experiment. For all intents and purposes, Holland is a straight ahead good guy. Boston Brand on the other hand is not exactly a bad guy but he has cold streak of selfishness. He’s ruthlessly focused on keeping the circus business alive often at the expense of the feelings of his fellow performers.

    By creating a character that in life was not the greatest person, Deadman became a story of redemption. Brand was always seeking revenge on his killer, but he couldn’t resist using his newfound abilities to help people as well. This aspect of the character was made explicitly clear when he was rebooted for DC’s New 52. The creative team of Paul Jenkins and Bernard Chang added a new wrinkle to Deadman’s mythology. He must use his powers to help people in order to atone for his selfish life or be forced to spend eternity forever in limbo between life and death. The core of Deadman’s character becomes clear, this is a guy who has been given a second chance. The human urge to rectify one’s past behavior is a palpable and very emotional undercurrent to a story about a superhero who can possess people’s bodies.

    Hellboy Seeks Humanity

    Another otherworldly hero with a slightly different streak of humanity thahellboyn those mentioned before is Dark Horse’s Hellboy. The brainchild of writer/artist Mike Mignola, Hellboy is a half demon, half human who was born in hell. Unlike Swamp Thing or Deadman, Hellboy comes from another world and is brought into ours. As opposed to Alec Holland or Boston Brand trying to reclaim their humanity, Hellboy seeks a humanity that he was not born with. Hellboy though monstrous in appearance combats monsters and other supernatural evil for an organization called the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (or BPRD).

    Hellboy presents a character that rebels against his supposed destiny. He was created by evil to enact evil. His right hand is meant to bring about the end of the world. Hellboy chooses to ignore his destiny and instead lives a blue-collar lifestyle of a cop or a plumber, albeit one who combats demons and monsters for a living.

    Almost everyone has at one point or another in their life wondered about their place in the world or grappled with other people’s intentions for them. Most people probably don’t have apocalyptic prophecies connected to them, but Hellboy is a comic book after all.

    Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in varying degrees of being alive. However, humanity is at the core of all these stories. Whether it’s the struggle to regain humanity or a quest to understand humanity, it becomes clear that being human is not related to physical features. In fact, the most physically monstrous can often have the most emotionally complex and human of stories.

    Review: Civil War HC

    civil war hcMark Millar and Steve McNiven collaborated back in 2006 to bring us the Marvel Event, Civil War. This title has been getting a lot of attention recently due to the upcoming release of the Captain America: Civil War movie, based loosely on this story arc. Notice, I said “loosely.” Don’t expect your movie experience to match your comic experience. Every storyline, hero, and villain from a year long comic crossover simply can’t be shown in two hours on a movie screen.

    This hardcover edition collects Civil War (2006) #1-7 and Marvel Spotlight: Mark Millar/Steve McNiven. Included are some spectacular extras, including concept art, variant covers, pencil sketches, interviews with Millar and McNiven, and an 11 page Daily Bugle, Civil War Special Edition newspaper.

    Mark Millar did an amazing job telling both sides of the story of two leaders who both have vastly different views on how to solve a common issue. As Doctor Strange so aptly describes the situation, “There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.”

    The artwork is stunning. This edition features Steve McNiven’s strong style throughout the pages, but also on the dust jacket and the cover itself. The battles are epic, involving just about all of the Marvel Universe’s major players.

    In the opening sequence, we see that heroes and villains are out of control. As part of a setup for filming a reality show, The New Warriors are taking on Cobalt Man, Coldheart, Nitro, and Speedfreak. We quickly learn these villains are way out of the youngsters’ league. The fight ends with a massive explosion that kills innocent bystanders, including a whole elementary school filled with children. The blowback has ordinary citizens calling for the blood of all super humans, faces and heels, A-list , B-list and C-list.

    One of the student victim’s parents appeals to Tony Stark, and he is so guilt ridden that he agrees to help lead the movement for the Registration Act, a bill that would see every human with super abilities registered, trained, employed, and monitored by S.H.I.E.L.D. Captain America, by contrast, believes that superheroes should be able to keep their identities secret, and that being controlled by the government had massive potential for misuse of the almost unlimited combined power of every super human on the planet.

    The leaders both gain strong initial support. There are surprise appearances on both sides of the fence, and a few heel turns and face turns. Not a lot of cheap pops to be found in the story. The characters felt genuine and the finish, while it made perfect sense, left me in shock.

    Civil War, HC McNiven Cover, new printing, April 6, 2016, Writer: Mark Millar, Artist: Steve McNiven, $31.49 at tfaw.com.

    Review: Empress #1

    empress #1A LONG TIME AGO, IN OUR GALAXY…

    To be specific, 65 Million years ago, here on Earth, this first issue of EMPRESS begins with the story of the Earth’s FIRST rulers. AS IF having Mark Millar and Stuart Immonen’s names on a comic book wouldn’t have been enough to get me to pick it up! Then, to further pull me in with gorgeous cover art by Immonen and Dave McCaig, featuring a horned-helmeted noblewoman flanked by two “futuristic” looking masculine figures, all of whom we’ve never seen before. I’m already sold, of course, and then I read the first two pages, finding that the story begins right here on our little blue planet, only set sixty-five million years ago!!! Tell. Me. More.

    It seems, back then, King Morax was quite the fearsome Monarch who sacrificed, in a Roman-style coliseum, his own subjects who even sought to incite disobedience. Such offenders were so afraid of King Morax, in fact, that they chose to face “the monster,” rather than the King himself, in battle in front of an enormous stadium filled with spectators. The accused and convicted “criminals” died quickly, which we readers are led to believe was the right choice, as clearly Morax would NOT have been so merciful of opponents.

    How is THAT for a comic, and saga, opener?! Well, strap yourselves in, dear readers and comic-lovers, I have a feeling that this is going to get GOOD. You may want to stop, here, and run to your device to order the book, straight away. For those of you not yet convinced, enter the Empress. Unlike the hulking brick-red King (a bit of a cross between Red Hulk and Hellboy, only with long white hair, a goatee, and sci-fi armor), the Queen is a vision of majestic beauty, and we soon find out that she can no longer stand her husband’s brutal and megalomaniacal ways.

    What does she plan to do about her marriage to a man she can no longer tolerate? With the help of like-minded friends and family, can she leave Morax, and not sacrifice her very life? Dear readers, I’ll stop the spoilers here, but do yourself a favor and pick up this first-issue and get yourself on this soon-to-be wild roller-coaster ride. The second half of the book fills our eyes, and our minds, with intense action and a bit of backstory, for clarification, and leaves me champing at the bit to read issue number two!

    I knew that creators Millar (Ultimate X-Men, Civil War, Kick-Ass) and Immonen (Action Comics, The Adventures of Superman, Ultimate Spider-Man) would not disappoint. One last thing, in addition, they put in a teaser preview of the Jupiter’s Legacy sequel by Frank Quitely, which looks intriguing to say the least.

    Words and pictures for the win, my friends.

    Empress #1, from Marvel Entertainment. Written by Mark Millar, Art by Stuart Immonen and Sean Murphy. Published April 6, 2016. $11.69.

    Batman Arkham Asylum Poison Ivy Statue review at TFAW.comHappy New Year, comic fans!

We took a look at the reviews that were submitted in December and are awarding $25 gift certificates as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. And the winners are (insert drum roll here):

    Our first contest winner is Bob in Mission Viejo, CA! Bob wrote a review for the Batman Arkham Asylum Poison Ivy Statue caught our eye:

    When I first saw a prototype (at Comic-Con I think), I wasn’t thrilled with her face and the paint colors throughout. But they’ve really grown on me. The fine detail on it is staggering. It’s a heavy build, molded to the base, which gives it great stability. Love her pose, blowing spores at her victim. Note that she has very fine fingers that could be damaged if unpacked carelessly. I went very, very slowly when I opened the package and removed the plastic wrap. She’s in a green metal and glass display case (thank you, Ikea!) with other Poison Ivy statues. I turn her every few days to get a new view. TFAW, thank you for a smooth sale and prompt shipment of a wonderful product.

    Birthright #1 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Marc from Merced, CA. He had this to say about Birthright #1 by Joshua Williamson:

    An excellent #1 from Image, went into the book thinking I had an idea what it would be about, totally wrong. A truly pleasant surprise and an intriguing read. Highly recommend to those needing a fresh new book to start on and original story.

    Nemesis HC review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Dane from Sparta, WI dropped by to share his thoughts about the Nemesis HC:

    July Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein HC review at TFAW.comEvery month, our customers submit hundreds of product reviews that help others determine how great (or flat-out bad) certain comics, graphic novels, and other collectibles are. We took a look at the reviews that were submitted in July and are awarding $25 gift certificates as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. And the winners are (insert drum roll here):

    Joe from East Northport, NY penned a couple really great reviews last month — his review for Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein HC caught our eye:

    Great art in this beautiful hardcover. I have it as a coffee table book and company always has something to say and will take a look, mostly they all love it. Great classic story and the artwork to go along with it is amazing.

    MPH #1 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is David from Nortonville, KS. He had this to say about Mark Millar’s newest book, MPH #1:

    A nifty take on the super-speed power that takes place in a universe where no one can oppose it, supposedly. Well written, great art, an overall excellent read. Not an over-the-top book like Kick-Ass or Wanted though, at least by issue 2.

    I am a huge fan of Millar’s work and while this isn’t his craziest story, it’s quite well written with characters you can relate to (or at least empathize with). The characters are believable with a relatable the-ends-justify-the-means mentality of the main character. I wouldn’t condone it, I’m just saying I can see parallels in the world we live in today. People feeling their only option out of a bad situation is through some sort of crime, but in the end a desire to just get out, go straight, and leave their bad start behind.

    Marvel Grab Bag graphic novel review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Gabe from South Australia dropped by to share his thoughts about our $3 Marvel Grab Bag Graphic Novels:

    Wow! I ordered and received 3 graphic novels: Young Avengers Presents: Young Avengers, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Volume 2 and Iron Man: I Am Iron Man. I’m astonished that I got these wonderful collections at the price I did considering the condition that they’re in. The ones I received look no worse than the ones I’ve seen in stores before (one of them had a fold in one page…that’s honestly it though). I’m almost certainly going to purchase more of these considering the price. Thanks so much for these fun surprises!!!

    February Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith - Spiral #5 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 February’s Product Reviews. We’ll be sending $25 gift certificates to the people who posted them.

    Lorenzo from Steilacoom, WA is the first of this month’s winners. Here’s what he had to say about Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral #5:

    This final issue concludes the ebook comic series. Set in an isolated planet where a Sith ship crashed thousands of year before, Lost Tribe of the Sith is a basically a fantasy… with lightsabers! The finale puts ancient Sith Lord Dreypa, awoken from hibernation in his oubliette (nice shoutout to Vector) against the whole tribe. Will the Sith Lord escape from Kesh, or will the rebel Spinner?

    Secret Service  review at TFAW.com Curtis from Myrtle Point, OR wrote this review last month. His review of Secret Service #5 caught our eye.

    Secret Service delivers! I only hold back from 5 stars, because I don’t want to be too loose with my ratings. However, Millar and Gibbons deliver a pitch perfect gritty British secret agent romp from start to – well, almost the finish here. If you enjoy the genre, give it a whirl!

    Hellboy in Hell review at TFAW.comLast but not least, there’s Philip from Durham, NC, who’s review for the Hellboy in Hell #1 really spoke to us.

    Mignola returns to the wheelhouse of the Hellboy title for another cryptic look around a crooked corner of his universe. I wish he could jam more story and mystery into the pages but am afraid it would only tarnish his beautiful Mignola-paced panels; and we just got them back!

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

    So submit your reviews and help your fellow collectors, and us, sort out the “HOT” from the “NOT”! Who knows, you may be one of next month’s winners.
