Can the other Power Rangers get to their friend in time to save him from Batman? Co-published with BOOM! Studios.

JACK: I think many of the DC heroes (batman) are about to have their butts handed to them (batbutt). Can’t wait to get my hands on this book. Definitely my top pick of the week.

RED SONJA #1 (Vol. 4)
Writer: Amy Chu
Artist: Carlos Gomez
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: A new chapter for the Queen of the Hyrkanian Age. Our favorite warrior has faced the toughest of demons, foes and strange magic, but nothing has prepared this 6 ft. tall barbarian for…the modern world. Emerging from a subway construction site in New York City, confronted by cops and guns, Sonja fights for her survival in a new and hostile world. Is she here by accident or by design? Who brought her here, and why? By the creative team of Amy Chu (Poison Ivy, KISS) and Carlos Gomez (Dresden Files).

JACK: I don’t care what Stephen says, Red Sonja swinging her sword in a chainmail bikini in the middle of downtown New York is something I want to read right now. Amy Chu and Carlos Gomez are going to kill it with this series. If you love Red Sonja, then you really need to grab this book.

Writer: Tom DeFalco
Artists: Sandy Jarrell, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Jack Morelli
Cover Price: $3.99
Publisher: Archie Comics
SOLICITATION: There are a set of unspoken rules when it comes to dealing with Reggie Mantle. Rules that, when broken, can easily get you on his bad side. Unfortunately for most of the people Reggie encounters, they don’t know these rules. In fact, there’s only one person that does—and it isn’t a person at all, it’s Reggie’s devoted Dachshund, Vader. With half of Riverdale High School having committed the mortal sin of ditching a Mantle house party, Archie and Betty’s attempts at interfering in Reggie’s life, Midge actually pitying Reggie and a friendship request from someone very unexpected, Reggie and Vader are going to have to get a lot smarter about their schemes!

STEPHEN: Reggie is the worst! That said, I found out I liked the first issue a lot more than I thought I would. I’m going to grab this issue just to see if Tom DeFalco keeps up with the great storytelling.

Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Jason Latour
Cover Price: $2.99
Publisher: Image Comics
SOLICITATION: “GUT CHECK,” Part Two Things get bloody as Coach Boss is forced to expand his criminal dealings to keep control of the football season.

JACK: I didn’t know much about this series until Matthew and Stephen reviewed it on a Dueling Review podcast. WOW! I didn’t know hard noir revenge tales set in the deep south were a thing, but I’m glad I have plenty of reading to do in the back issue bin. Issue #16 will be devoured later this afternoon.
