IT’S NEW COMIC BOOK DAY! #NCBD

The best day of the week just got a lot better with a new round of awesome comics arriving in stores this week. Staff members at Major Spoilers are here to help you with your comic book selection this week, with their roundup of comics they recommend.

AMERICA #2
Writer: Gabby Rivera
Artist: Joe Quinones
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: OKAY, LADIES, NOW LET’S GET IN FORMATION!!

• America Chavez’s first semester of college is off to an epic start. That’s right…homework on the first day! The assignment? A field trip to the frontlines of World War II!
• Most freshman would be intimidated – but most freshman aren’t dimension-hoping heroes with Captain America as their wingman!
• Meanwhile, unexpected fallout from an Ultimates’ mission begins to wreak havoc on not only America’s life but also the larger Marvel Universe as a whole!

MATTHEW: My favorite member of my favorite team in her own solo series, with Joe Quinones art? Of course I’m on-board with this one…

EXTREMITY #2
Writer: Daniel Warren Johnson
Artist: Daniel Warren Johnson
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Thea has taken her first step toward vengeance against the Paznina warlords who ruined her family. But this world offers more than vengeance as she discovers a new ally in the wreckage of the Rising Plains.

CHRIS: Extremity #1 shocked me in how much I enjoyed it. Not at all what I was expecting. This is a fantasy/sci-fi/revenge story with gorgeous art. Seriously go get issue one and two. Amazing stuff.

PROVIDENCE #12
Writer: Alan Moore
Artist: Jacen Burrows
Publisher: Avatar Press Inc.
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: This is the issue when all you know changes. The finest horror work ever written comes to a conclusion you cannot imagine. All the threads are weaving into a tapestry of history re-imagined. Or was our history the fiction? Time to wake up, he who slumbers. This is Providence… or is this Yuggoth? Alan Moore’s masterpiece draws to a close, and nothing will be the same. Available with Regular, Pantheon, Portrait, Dreamscape Wraparound, Women of HPL, the painted Weird Pulp and a special Ancient Tome Incentive cover, all by collaborator Jacen Burrows.

CHRIS: Alan Moore’s love letter to H.P. Lovecraft is finally coming to a conclusion. Can’t say that this is the time to jump on considering it is the last issue, but definitely check out the trade if reading Moore’s take on Lovecraftian horror excites you. Let’s also be thankful there is no “nude” version to any of the covers. Imagine that…

ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN #1
Writer: Kyle Starks
Artist: Kyle Starks
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Eisner-nominated comic creator, KYLE STARKS (SEXCASTLE), would like to invite you to enter the magical world of hobos. The world’s toughest hobo is searching through post-World War II America for the mythological Rock Candy Mountain, and he’s going to have to fight his way to get there. Lots of hobo fights. So many hobo fights. A new action-comedy series full of high action, epic stakes, magic, friendships, trains, punching, kicking, joking, a ton of hobo nonsense, and the Literal Devil. Yeah. The Literal Devil.

MATTHEW: You had me at ‘a ton of hobo nonsense.’

STEPHEN: You had me at the hobo song title. I don’t know what to expect, but I hope it is good. It should probably be noted that I’ve never seen Hobo Fighting, nor do I support it.

SUN BAKERY #2
Writer: Corey Lewis
Artist: Corey Lewis
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: “DREAM SKILLS,” Part Two-AREM’s intergalactic Instagram quest continues as she finds herself in danger. In “DREAM SKILLS,” Xasha & Puff face the Rock Lord, barista gatekeeper of Wi-Fi. BAT RIDER’s mysterious, bloodletting girlfriend reveals herself in the ’90s throwback short comic “BLOODSHED.” All in SUN BAKERY #2, the comics anthology magazine by Corey Lewis (Reyyy.)

MATTHEW: Issue one of this series was really impressive stuff, featuring a number of different takes and techniques and some really excellent cartoons. I recommend this one…
