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.

BATMAN THE SHADOW #6
Writer: Steve Orlando, Scott Snyder
Artist: Riley Rossmo
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: In this final team-up issue, all-out war has broken out in the streets of Shamba-La! The Stag and The Joker are hell-bent on stealing all of the city’s secrets and ensuring absolute darkness falls across the globe. It’s the last stand for Batman and the Shadow, and the Dark Knight will have to decide once and for all if he’s going to embrace the destiny the Shadow has set out for him.

STEPHEN: This is it! Batman and the Shadow together again (for the last time?). This has been an interesting series that really retconned a lot of the Batman origin, and I’m waiting for The Joker and The Stag to turn on one another as our dark heroes save the day.

DUCK TALES #1
Writer: Joe Caramagna
Artist: Lucas Usai, Gianfranco Florio
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Woo-oo! In “The Great Experiment of the Washing Machine,” Donald and the Nephews visit a top-secret lab, chock-full of crazy inventions to make life easier… but might make them SHORTER, instead! And then, learn “The Chilling Secret of the Lighthouse!”

MATTHEW: Ah-WOOOO-ooo!

It’s always great to see an old favorite revived and revamped in a smart, entertaining manner. Here’s hoping the book is up to the standards of the new show…

STEPHEN: I’m one of those bad fans that loved the original series, but haven’t had time to watch the new one. Still, DuckTales as a comic property looks good and definitely on my pull list this week.

OCCUPY AVENGERS TP Vol. 2 – IN PLAIN SIGHT
Writer: David Walker
Artist: Gabriel Hernandez Walta
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $15.99
SOLICITATION: Welcome to Dungston, Iowa, manure capital of the state – and home of a deadly secret! When the team’s van breaks down, Hawkeye and friends find themselves in the last place on Earth anyone would want to be, up against an enemy no one could see coming. An unlikely menace has come to destroy Small Town, U.S.A., and that means Clint Barton and his team are caught in the middle of a deadly showdown of intergalactic proportions. And that’s just the beginning of their problems. Because when Hawkeye is pulled into the fray of SECRET EMPIRE, the rest of the team finds itself without a leader on their most important mission to date – forcing Tilda to take charge! As new members join the fight, the team is determined to save the country – or die trying! Collecting OCCUPY AVENGERS #5-9.

MATTHEW: The best book you forgot to read is collected so you can remedy that mistake. I highly recommend this book, and think it will be one that writers keep linking back to, like The Sentry was a few years after his mini dropped off the end of the pier…

ZODIAC STARFORCE: CRIES OF THE FIRE PRINCE #2
Writer: Kevin Panetta
Artist: Paulina Ganucheau
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Winter break isn’t so relaxing for the team! A creature from the dark dimension Nephos has been summoned to their town by unknown enemies. The girls also discover they aren’t the only Zodiac Starforce team-are they friend . . . or foe?

MATTHEW: Read. This. Book.

You won’t regret it…
