Cloaks #1 (of 4)
Writers: David Henrie, Caleb Monroe
Artist: Mariano Navarro
Publisher: BOOM! Studios

In the Big Apple, a highly skilled street illusionist named Adam blows the minds of crowds with logic-defying acts, while surreptitiously using his artistry to steal from corrupt Wall Street investment bankers and re-distribute their ill-begotten wealth to those in need. He’s a modern-day Robin Hood, but his travails garner the attention of the local authorities. While evading their pursuit, Adam is confronted by three suits and quickly ascertains that freedom has a cost—in order to maintain his liberty, he must join this clandestine Black Ops organization simply known as CLOAKS.

Rating: ★★★★☆

MATTHEW
Adam 12 #6
Writer: Gigio Longo
Artist: Nick Sunders
In the near future, America is no longer a “free” country. Unable to sustain its debts, the United States is “owned” by China. Adam Stairs — a day-dreaming, low-ranking employee in Philadelphia’s housing department — does his best to excel in a dim and oppressed world of bureaucrats. Adam’s girlfriend left him, his boss hates him, he has an alcoholic/womanizing best friend, and he’s homeless. Everything in his life seems to be going the wrong way, but unbeknownst to him, Adam is about to get his 12th chance at life, love and leading humanity to the Garden of Eden.

Rating: ★★½☆☆

RODRIGO
Dark Ages #2
Writer: Dan Abnett
Artist: I.N.J. Culbard
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
As hell comes forth from the skies above, the heathen war band seeks refuge and redemption in a fortified monastery. But inside lies a dark secret that could ensure their salvation—or seal their fate!

Rating: ★★★½☆

ZACH
Wayward #1
Writer: Jim Zub
Artist: Steven Cummings
Publisher: Image Comics
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER FOR A NEW GENERATION! Rori Lane is trying to start a new life when she reunites with her mother in Japan, but ancient creatures lurking in the shadows of Tokyo sense something hidden deep within her, threatening everything she holds dear. Can Rori unlock the secrets of her power before it’s too late? JIM ZUB (SKULLKICKERS, Samurai Jack), STEVE CUMMINGS (Legends of the Dark Knight, Deadshot), and JOHN RAUCH (INVINCIBLE) team up to create an all-new Image supernatural spectacle that combines the camaraderie and emotion of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the action and mystery of Hellboy. Don’t miss it!

Rating: ★★★★½

Calvin vs. Charlie Brown
I love it when fine Spoilerites (like you) write in with comments and suggestions about the site, or offer up an idea for the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week. This week, Silvergray returns with a battle that is a bit bizarre and one we would really be interested in seeing play out.

This week, it’s a battle of the comic strip stars! In one corner the star of Calvin and Hobbes, the six-year-old with the imagination – CALVIN! In the other corner, the kid with the bald head and a father who is a barber – Charlie Brown!

FIGHT!
Who would win in a fight? Calvin or Charlie Brown


Oprah as Amanda Waller? (Comment Here)

DISCUSSION: Planetary Vol. 1: All Over the World and Other Stories

Collecting the stories that first introduced the world to Planetary, this graphic novel features the adventures of Elijah Snow, a hundred year old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful and bored woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines. Infatuated with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists of the late 20th Century uncover unknown paranormal secrets and histories, such as a World War II supercomputer that can access other universes, a ghostly spirit of vengeance, and a lost island of dying monsters.
