New Comic Book Day 4/29/15

What better way to close out the month than with one more round of new comic books? Not sure where to start? Then let’s take a look at some of this week’s titles to give you a better idea of what is on stands. Image Comics heats things up with two titles worth a look in the form of Bitch Planet #4 (Kelly Sue DeConnick, Valentine De Landro) and Pisces #1 (Kurtis J. Wiebe, Johnnie Christmas). If horror is more where your geek lies, IDW Publishing is stepping up to meet the need with Haunted Horror #16 (various writers and artist, George Roussos cover). For those looking for some shield slinging super hero shenanigans, Marvel Comics has All New Captain America #6 (Rick Remender, Stuart Immonen). Not one to be left out of the cape and cowl game ,DC Comics steps up and delivers with the packed pages of Multiversity #2 (Grant Morrison, Ivan Reis, Joe Prado). Dark Horse Comics closes things out this week with an intriguing premise unfolding in the pages of Pastaways #2 (Matt Kindt, Scott Kolins). If you are ready to elevate your game and expand your horizons, consider picking up Cedar Grove Books/Blaxis Publishing ‘s 4 Pages /16 Bars: A Visual Mixtape: Sequential Graffiti (Jiba Molei Anderson) Doing so will be like graduating from Pop music to Jazz, a veritable “who’s who” road map to some of the indie comic scenes best and brightest that you may not have heard about…yet. Showcasing profiles with such “Visual MCs” as N. Steven Harris, Kenjji Jumanne-Marshall, John Jennings and “Literary DJs” asBrandon Easton, Brandon Thomas and Damion Gonzales (just to name a few) anyone who reads this one from cover to cover will be educated on the next wave of industry innovators. The great thing about this week’s list…there are so many titles to choose from! Be sure to head down to yourlocal comic shop and pick your favorites to hold you over until the next round. For the true comic fans, don’t forget, Free Comic Book Day will be celebrated on May 2, so check out some cool reads on the weekend as well. Until the next episode…stack them high and Enjoy!

Here we are ready for another week of great new reads that have a little something for everyone. Before you head down to your local comic shop to start that shopping spree, take a look at this week’s list so as to make the chore as efficient as possible. Don’t know where to start? Then take a peek at some of this week’s highlights to get a few ideas. First up, Dark Horse Comics touches on the wonderful world of movie properties and brings the deep space sci-fi with Prometheus: Fire and Stone #1 (Paul Tobin, Juan Ferreyra, David Palumbo). Looking for something that the kids can get into or maybe you’d like to revisit these characters from your yesteryear? DC Comics makes for the second stop on our sequential tour with Scooby Doo Where Are You #49 (Sholly Fisch, Robert Pope, Scott McRae, Scott Jeralds). Let’s sprinkle in a bit of superhero action as well with DC Comics World’s Finest: Future’s End #1 (Paul Levitz, Yildiray Cinar, Paul Neary, Stephen Segovia). Oni Press, home of some very unique and fresh storytelling, earns a spot of this week’s peeks with Bunker #6 (Joshua Hale Fialkov, Joe Infurnari). Get your pulp on with this classic figure from the genre over at Dynamite Entertainment in The Shadow Year One #10 (Matt Wagner, Wilfredo Torres). Image Comics always is a winner with this hard hitting ongoing series, check out Invincible #114 (Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley, Cliff Rathburn, John Rauch). To close things out, Marvel Comics brings you the continuing demise of a hero in the pages of Death Of Wolverine #2 (Charles Soule, Steve McNiven). Remember, by no means is this a complete list of all the great reads that are out there. Go out, investigate and explore and you may just find a hidden gem from the world of idie creators. So until next week, stack them high and enjoy!

That’s right, a list jam packed with titles that tell tales of the fantastical, the shocking, the horrifying, and the inspirational. Where can you get your hands on these stories? Why your local comic shop of course. But, before you head out the door, let’s take a look at some of this week’s stand out titles to give you an idea of what is hot. Let’s head over to Dark Horse Comics where two titles roll out this week; those being Sundowners #1 (Tim Seeley, Jim Terry, Chris Brunner) with some with superhero action and sci-fi story telling in the pages of Deep Gravity #2 (Mike Richardson, Gabriel Hardman, Corinna Bechko, Fernando Baldo, Matthew Wilson). DC Comics has the final entry in what was a great western series featuring the iconic Jonah Hex with All Star Western #34 (Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, Darwyn Cooke). Rolling with the western theme, Oni Press sprinkles in a bit of the supernatural in the strong title The Sixth Gun #42 (Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt). Image Comics continues to weave tales of the fantastical with the next entry in this new series with Low #2 (Rick Remender, Greg Tocchini) and the debut of what looks to be a wonderfully creepy new title Wayward #1 (Jim Zub , Steven Cummings, John Rauch, Ross Campbell). For some dystopian future madness from across the pond check out Rebellion/2000 A.D and the one shot release of Jaegir: Strigoi, One Shot (Gordon Rennie, Simon Coleby). Now for something really special that isn’t on this week’s list. If you are in the market for some great indie work that will spark your imagination, check out Legends Pess Project: Wildfire #2 (Quinn McGowan). Currently available for digital download, this tale takes comic book conventions that we are all familar with and breathes new life into them. So, take note, Project: Wildfire is worth the read. That will do it for this week, so get that pull list together and get ready to do some epic reading. Until next week, stack them high and enjoy!

Cassandra Clare reflects on the end of  ‘The Mortal Instruments’ series

 The Mortal Instruments are coming to an end. The best-selling young adult book series reaches its finale this week, with Tuesday’s publication of the sixth and final book, City of Heavenly Fire.

It’s a milestone that is both exhilarating and bittersweet — both for fans, and author Cassandra Clare.

“This does mean saying goodbye,” Clare told Novel Novice in an exclusive interview. “I may get to write about Shadowhunters again, but not these Shadowhunters. I won’t get to write another Jace, another Clary, another Alec. Every character is different. I’ll miss their banter and interactions.”

City of Heavenly Fire may be the final book in The Mortal Instruments, but it isn’t the first time fans thought they were saying goodbye to these specific Shadowhuners. Originally, the series was published as a trilogy, with the third book, City of Glass, being released in 2009.

“I originally had the idea that after City of Glass I would spin off into a story that centered around Simon,” Clare said. “There was even the idea that it would be a graphic novel — there’s very early drafts of the graphic novel script lying around! When I started to work on it seriously though I realized it wouldn’t work for me. I had too much left to say about the other characters, especially Jace, Clary, Magnus and Alec.”

However, this time Clare seems certain that the original Mortal Instruments series is over. She is far from done writing about the world of the Shadowhunters. Having already completed one trilogy of prequels, The Infernal Devices, Clare has planned at least two more sets of trilogies in this universe — another set of prequels, and one that looks to the new generation of Shadowhunters.

Clare also recently co-wrote a collection of short stories based on the popular character Magnus with her friends and fellow authors Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan. It will be available in a complete set known as The Bane Chronicles in November. (The original stories were only released in electronic form.)

To celebrate Tuesday’s release of City of Heavenly Fire, fans can enter to win a complete boxed set of The Mortal Instruments books and a one-of-a-kind Mortal Instruments hoodie.

New comic book releases 5/14/14

If you find yourself making it to the halfway mark for the week and in need of something to take you away for a few minutes, you’ve come to the right place. Here is this week’s new release list, with the cure for the midweek blues. Be sure to pick a few titles from the list then head down to your local comic shop to find your favorites. Don’t know where to start? Stick around and we’ll take a look at a few to give you a couple of ideas. First up, Marvel Comics rolls out a title that just recently saw the return of a fan favorite swashbuckling hero, we’re talking about Nightcrawler #2 (Chris Claremont, Todd Nauck, Jamie McKelvie). So if you are looking for some high flying fun, consider putting this one on your list (and check out the associated video for a peek at the high flying hero!) Next up, take that spirit of swashbuckling and high adventure to the stars and you get this week’s offering from Image Comics in the pages of Starlight #3 (Mark Millar, Goran Parlov). Running with a bit of the pulp feel that resonates in Image’s offering, we’ll go full blown and propose that you check out Dynamite Entertainment’s final issue of The Shadow #25 (Chris Roberson, Giovanni Timpano, Alex Ross) in what promises to be chock full of throwback pulp action. If you like your comics grim and gritty, then Dark Horse has what you need in the pages of X #13 (Duane Swierczynski, Eric Nguyen, Aleksi Briclot). Still not sure it is your cup of tea? Then check out a few preview pages in the associated slide show for a peek at the trouble that is unfolding for the titles hero. Finally, DC Comics rounds things up with what is promising to be a super event in the pages of Superman Doomed #1 (Scott Lobdell & Various, Ken Lashley).

Comic fans in the SF/Bay Area have a big week ahead as BIG WOW 2014 will shake things up in San Jose, CA May 16-17 at the San Jose Convention Center and the following weekend sees FanimeCon 2014 (in the same venue).

Scott Westerfield’s ‘Uglies’ series in development for TV series

YA author Scott Westerfeld‘s best-selling dystopian series Uglies is in development to become a TV series.

According to Publisher’s Weekly, “Negotiations are in an advanced stage with a U.S. television network to adapt [Westefeld’s] bestselling Uglies books into a TV series.”

Movie rights to the Uglies series have been sold before, but this is the first time (publicly, at least) that the books have been under consideration as a TV series.

With the first book published in 2005, the Uglies series became best-sellers well before The Hunger Games made the dystopian genre a cornerstone of the YA market. The books take place in a futuristic, dystopian world, in which teenagers are surgically transformed into “Pretties” on their 16th birthdays. But heroine Tally ends up running away just before her 16th birthday and teams up with a group of “Uglies” living outside of the system, and learns there is more to the surgeries than she’s been lead to believe.

Westerfeld is also the author of the Leviathan series, and will release a standalone novel this fall, called Afterworlds.

New comic book releases 3/5/14

And away we go! Another week stuffed to the gills with new comic book release goodness. Let’s dive right in and take a look at a few titles landing in your local comic shop this week. First up, IDW Publishing revives a character made popular in the pages of the sci-fi/fantasy anthology 2000 A.D. with the debut issue of Rouge Trooper #1 (Brian Ruckley, Alberto Ponticelli, Glenn Fabry) for some future battle front action (be sure to check out the associated video for a peek at a visual timeline of 35 years of 2000 AD presented by Richard Herrero). Next up, Dark Horse Comics gets things rolling with a brand new series from Greg Rucka with Veil #1 (Greg Rucka, Toni Fejzula) and some great looking preview pages (take a look at the associated slide show for a peek). Image Comics has a pair of titles on this week’s list with Starlight #1 (Mark Millar, Goran Parlov, John Cassaday) and Velvet #4 (Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting). Marvel Comics brings back a fan favorite with Moon Knight #1 in what promises to be an interesting take on the cowled crusader (Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey). Finally, check out something new this week! The comic medium is filled with wonderful stories that you may not find on the traditional beaten path. One such title is Ravenhammer Comics Lucius Hammer (Brian Williams, Christian Colbert) series. With the hook “A hero is defined by his actions. Not the color of his skin”, this title nails the elements essential for a superhero title that is destined to become a comic book icon. That about wraps it up for this round true reader. So, be sure to stack them high and until next week, enjoy!
