SOLICITATION: The story of boxing icon Muhammad Ali!
An original graphic novel celebrating the life of the glorious athlete who metamorphosed from Cassius Clay to become a three-time heavyweight boxing legend, activist, and provocateur: Muhammad Ali. Not only a titan in the world of sports but in the world itself, he dared to be different and to challenge and defy through his refusal to be drafted to fight in Vietnam, his rejection of his “slave” name, and ultimately his final fight with his body itself through a thirty-year battle with Parkinson’s disease. Witness what made Ali different, what made him cool, what made him the Greatest.

RODRIGO: $20 for this hardcover seems like a steal. Especially given what I’ve seen of Amazing Ameziane’s art.

Writer: Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson
Artist: Christopher Mitten
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: In an ancient temple lost deep in the jungle, the heroes find proof of the rumored human sacrifices and answers about the Cult of the Black Flame.

STEPHEN: Such a great pulpy tale, and I can really see this series becoming the next B.P.R.D. of the Victorian Era. If you love your Hellboy and Mignola-verse creations, this is a book to pick up this week.

Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Olivier Coipel
Publisher: Marvel
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The Odinson’s desperate search to regain his worthiness has taken him out into the cosmos, where he’s learned of the existence of a mysterious other Mjolnir. This weapon of unimaginable power, a relic from a dead universe, is the key to Odinson’s redemption — but some of the greatest villains of the Marvel Universe are now anxious to get their hands on it as well. Can The Odinson reclaim his honor, or will the power of thunder be wielded for evil? The quest for the hammer begins here.

RODRIGO: Man, so conflicted about this one. “Another Mjolnir” sounds terrible, right? But this is a good concept in general. Am I going to get back into Marvel comics?
