Black Bolt #7


I’ve been talking this series up because it’s really crazy. One reason I’m really excited about this is Fraser Irving is doing the art for this issue, and he has this really crazy digital painting style that fits these big cosmic story. This is writer Saladin Ahmed’s first comic and it is FANTASTIC.

Enrico Marini is doing this hardcover, and DC is embracing a new format. It’s a cool European-style graphic novel, and I love seeing them being a little more experimental with their big characters.

Eternity #1


It’s so much more than the next DIVINITY miniseries (which have consistently been some of Valiant’s best work), ETERNITY is a grand epic beyond time and space, yet still grounded and human enough to be accessible.

New Release Pick of the Week

DARK KNIGHT RETURNS THE GOLDEN CHILD #1

(W) Frank Miller (A/CA) Rafael Grampá
Frank Miller returns to the Dark Knight Universe!
It’s been three years since the events of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Lara has spent the time learning to be more human, and Carrie Kelley has been growing into her new role as Batwoman. But a terrifying evil has returned to Gotham City, and Lara and Carrie must team up to stop this growing threat-and they have a secret weapon. Young Jonathan Kent, “the golden child,” has a power inside of him unlike anything the world has ever seen, and it’s about to be unleashed…
Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight and joining him is the superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking Mesmo Delivery. Following work in advertising and film, this incredible collaboration marks Grampá’s first comics work in six years, bringing his extraordinary detail and storytelling to the Dark Knight saga, resulting in a Dark Knight story like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
