Shuri #1> FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE BLACK PANTHER!
The world fell in love with her in the movie. Now, the Black Panther’s techno-genius sister launches her own adventures – written by best-selling Afrofuturist author Nnedi Okorafor and drawn by Eisner-nominated artist Leonardo Romero!
The Black Panther has disappeared, lost on a mission in space. And in his absence, everyone’s looking at the next in line for the throne. But Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She’d rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one – and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own. (S) Nnedi Okorafor (A) Leonardo Romero (CA) Sam Spratt
Smurfs Take> Wakanda forever! It’s encouraging when a character from the big screen can inspire their own series. So use to seeing it the other way around. However in these moments I wonder how much is the writing vs. the acting? IS our love for the character all in the delivery? No doubt she lights up the scenes but how does that truly translate to the comic world? Excited to see this title and have all my questions answered.
Justice League #10> THE ROAD TO “DROWNED EARTH”! When Wonder Woman learns that Cheetah gained new powers and killed the Greek sea god, Poseidon, that sets Aquaman off on a search for answers, bringing him into conflict with an entity known as the Flood, a herald for long-dead ocean gods with an ancient grudge against Poseidon, Atlantis and, well, everyone else on Earth. Who are those guys? Some very big fish-and you know what big fish do? Eat smaller fish like Aquaman and his Justice League buddies! (S) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Francis Manapul
Smurfs Take> This has been a fantastic ride! I can not say enough about this book or push it any harder. It should be in everyone pull right now. It is everything the JLA of the Mid to late 90’s was and soooo much more.
Marvel Zombie #1> NEW FROM THE HOUSE OF IDEAS! MARVEL ZOMBIES IS BACK…WITH A TWIST!
Years after an incurable zombie virus ravaged the world, a small colony of survivors is protected by the Marvel U’s few remaining heroes, including Spider-Man, Daredevil and the Falcon. But when their last chance at salvation arrives, will they be willing to sacrifice their own humanity in the process? From the twisted minds of ICE CREAM MAN writer W. Maxwell Prince and Stefano Raffaele (Generations: Hawkeye) comes the next macabre obsession for fans of The Walking Dead and The Road! (S) W. Maxwell Prince (A) Stefano Raffaele (CA) Juan Ferreyra
Smurfs Take> It wouldn’t be Halloween without a good old Zombie story. Who knew this would hold on for as long as it has from the pages of Ultimate Fantastic Four. I still get a kick out of how brutal and diabolical these stories can get. Even if there are no real consequences to our current heroes you still feel bad when you see one get munched.
What If? Ghost Rider #1> You’ve only heard whispers of this real-world/Marvel Universe crossover until now, when moral decline and budgetary shortfalls have combined to lower our lawyers’ resistance! Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter, Scales & Scoundrels) and Caspar Wijngaard (Angelic, Limbo, DOCTOR APHRA ANNUAL #2) recklessly bring you the tale of the first and only true Nordic black metal band to visit the Marvel Universe through the INSANITY of likeness release waivers! What role does GHOST RIDER Robbie Reyes play, and will YOUR MIND survive the BRUTALITY?! (S) Sebastian Girner (A) Caspar Wijngaard (CA) Aleksi Briclot
Smurfs Take> I don’t know if this Ghost Rider will ever grow on me but for now he will do. I enjoyed last weeks, a lot ore then the X-Men Black book and I have a feeling that might hold true this week as well.
East Of West #39> NEW STORY ARC!
“THESE BROTHERS OF DESTINY”: The army of the Prophet masses, preparing to conquer the world. (S) Jonathan Hickman (A/CA) Nick Dragotta
Smurfs Take> I look so forward to this title. The world building that Hickman has done is incredible, the perfect mash of legend & lore with characters you would never expect to enjoy so much. A new story arc and excited to see what is next!
