NowReading: The Black Monday Murders #1

#NowReading #TheBlackMondayMurders #ImageComics #JonathanHickman #TommCoker Good stuff. A chunky first chapter with plenty of stuff to think about as to where this is going. I’m always amazed at Hickman’s ability to play within the seams of actual historical events to create alternate history fiction. From the solicit it looks #2 is another 50-some pages. I…

1st Issue Fetish | REYN #1 by Symons, Stockman and Little

Saw the ad for this in the backpages of Copperhead #2 (October; Image). It looks hella interesting and has me very intrigued. But I have no other details yet.

There’s nothing in comics I hate more than poo-pooing a new hopeful Image comic, but I just read Red City #1 and have come away a bit let down after admittedly hyping myself up for it due to its purported futuristic sci-fi/hardboiled crime concept. How was it? In a word: unimpressive. Firstly, it’s hardly hardboiled or…

1st Issue Fetish: BLACK WIDOW #1 by Nathan Edmondson & Phil Noto

This is one of the All-New Marvel NOW! titles I’d be most interested in giving a read (along with a new series featuring a certain green-skinned powerhouse bombshell). I enjoy Nathan Edmondson’s writing on his creator-owned book The Activity (with artist Mitch Gerards). As for Phil Noto, he can be a little hit n’ miss…

Although it will be a fast seller, it looks like retailers are on the ball with advance reorders. LINKAGE: Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool reports (with chart…

1st Issue Fetish: Rick Remender’s DEADLY CLASS #1

Announced at last year’s Image Expo in July, this one has been a long time coming.

Deadly Class follows in the wake of…
