donaldquest_01-1DONALD QUEST #1
Writer: Stefano Ambrosio
Artist: Andrea Freccero
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “Hammer of Magic!” A wild new Disney miniseries starts here! In the steampunk warrior world of Feudarnia, only the Magnus Malleus can save humanity from marauding Meteorbeasts! It’s an epic weapon for an epic hero… so why is it up to Donald Duck to grab it before Magica De Spell, the Beagle Boys, and the Phantom Blot get there first?

ROB: I’ll be honest, I chose this book for the cover alone. That said, I’m rather surprised to see how intrigued I am by the solicit. This looks like it could be a fun story with some of Disney’s more interesting villains.

MATTHEW: Even the very WORST issue of this series has been lovely to look at and entertaining as heck, and now I’m just waiting for the debut of Wonder Wheels!

sachsviolensSACHS & VIOLENS TP
Writer: Peter David
Artist: George Perez
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $19.99
SOLICITATION: The brutal killing of a young actress during the shooting of a snuff film sets soft core model Juanita Jean Sachs and photographer Ernie Schultz on a quest to discover those responsible. Their journey takes them from the mean streets of New York to the back alleys of New Orleans where they confront the utter depravity and corruption that defines the dark underbelly of American society.

MATTHEW: I’m breaking one of my rules here, but this series is totally worth it, taking the idea of adult comics and presenting it in an adult manner. Plus, George Perez at his finest. Not for the under 18 set, though… Sorry!

tmnt_ongoing_64-1TMNT ONGOING #64
Writer: Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman
Artist: Dave Wachter
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION:
“Chasing Phantoms” Part 4! The war between the Street Phantoms and the Foot Clan comes to a shocking conclusion, and only one will remain when the dust settles! The Turtles will test their limits in a shocking finale!

ultimates1ULTIMATES 2 #1
Writer: Al Ewing
Artist: Travel Foreman
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Who – or what – is the Cosmic Jailer? What being is powerful enough to chain Eternity itself? That is the mystery Galactus must solve – before it’s too late. Ultimate problems require ultimate solutions, and Galactus will call on those who helped cure his insatiable hunger. Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Blue Marvel, Spectrum and Ms. America! Together they are the Ultimates, protectors of the Omniverse. But now they are something more – the newest heralds of Galactus, the Lifebringer!

MATTHEW: The complex world-building of Al Ewing, dating back to Mighty Avengers or before, is fascinating stuff, and perhaps the most “classic Marvel” of any book they’ve put out since the turn of the century. Highly recommended.
